Mantram : 7.


Discussion-2. "Moha  and  Soka" ....


Not  only  that  a  man   of  Self-realisation  has  understood  in  his  own  vital  experience  that  he  is not  a  separate  individual  living  as  opposed  to  others,  but,  in  his  essential  nature,  he  is nothing  but  the  harmony  or  unity  that  underlies  all  seeming  discord   or  plurality,  which  are
perceived  as  a  scum  upon  the  reality.


He,  who   has  thus  realised  his  oneness  with  the  entire,  can  no  longer  have  the  ordinary  tossings  of  the  mind  arising  out  of  the  ordinary  psychological  tensions  created  through  delusion  (  moha ),  or  through  the  grief  ( soka ).




Grief  ( soka )  is  the  language  of  delusion.

The  amount  of  grief  in  an  individual's  life  is  directly  proportional  to  the  amount  of  delusion  in  him.

In  his  essential  nature,  he  is  All-Bliss.

Unity  or  harmony  is  Bliss.

But  in  delusion,  when  he cognises  plurality  and  discord,  there  arises  in  him  the  experience  of  grief.

This  delusion  creates  grief,  and  more  the  delusion,  more  is  the  grief.
