Talk 69 : Verses 223-228
A man of discriminative intellect alone can realise the Supreme Truth, and having done so, is freed from the cycle of birth and death. Indicators to the Pure Consciousness are described for a deeper understanding to the Jiva dwelling in the world of names and forms. Having realised the Absolute Reality in the seat of meditation, the entire world is negated and the samsarin becomes Brahman.

Aneeshwaraha- One who has no Lord or leader superior to Him. He is Maheshwara - the leader and the Lord of all the other leaders. He has no leader or superior to control him . He is the controller of all . Vedas praise this quality of the Lord.
न तस्य कश्चित् पतिरस्ति लोके न चेशिता नैव च तस्य लिङ्गं
स कारणं करणाधिपाधिपो नचास्य कश्चित् जनिता नचाधिप :
na tasya kaṡcit patirasti lōkē na cēṡitā naiva ca tasya liṅgaṃ
sa kāraṇaṃ karaṇādhipādhipō nacāsya kaṡcit janitā nacādhipah


He doesn’t have an owner in this universe. He doesn’t have a controller, a leader. He is not bound by forms. He is the prime reason of all that exists. He doesn’t have a father or a king.

Trayeemoorthihi – Whose nature is the 3 Vedas. Vedas are Anadi(Beginningless), Apaurusheya(Not created by humans) and Ananta(Endless). What is the nature of the Vedas and the Lord? The Vedas are the very breath of the Lord. Vedas and the Lord are one. Vedas do not mean books. Vid means knowledge. The Lord is Jnana-svarupa.

Talk 68 : Verses 220-222

Continuing the discussion on the nature of the Self, this talk discusses various pointers of the Self, analogies and the nature of the seer and the seen. This talk explains the seer or the drashta, as the witness or experiencer in us, conditioned by the equipment, the BMI. It reiterates that for the mumukshu seeking liberation from samsara, the only path is by realisation of the Supreme Truth.

Talk 67 : Verses 213-219

The Guru addresses the student’s query about the nature of the Ultimate state after the koshas are all negated, whether it is a state of blankness or otherwise. While praising the disciple’s ability to discriminate correctly, he explains the imperceptible nature of Brahman, the quality of Sakshi bhava, the reflected Consciousness in the Jiva or chidabhasa, as well as the Absolute nature of the Supreme Brahman.

Talk 66 : Verses 207-212

The anandamaya kosha or bliss sheath is explained through its various changing attributes, and with reference to the state of deep sleep. The five sheaths being negated, the Jiva must get out of the false identification to realise the Atma as being other than the pancha kosha. The nature of Atman as the pure unalloyed Bliss and the sakshi of the 3 states of waking, dreaming and deep sleep are then discussed.

Talk 65 - Verse 200-206

This talk commences with the relation of the Jiva and the atman. This Jivatma which arises out of the ignorance in the intellect is the cause of the false identification. The verses assert the discriminative power of the intellect to remove the ego and superimposition through right knowledge. The concluding verses gives reasons why vijnanamya kosha cannot be the Atma and negation in contemplation only can lead to realization of the Supreme Self.

Saamapriyaha- One who is fond of Saama Veda . One who is fond of pleasant songs. Chandogya upanishad has the Maha-vakya - Tat Tvam Asi and it is in the Sama Veda. In vibhooti yoga of Bhagavat Geeta Sri Krishna says वेदानां सामवेदोस्मि vēdānāṃ sāmavēdōsmi I am saamaveda among the vedas.

ब्रह्मा भवं तदास्तौषीद्रथंतरमुदीरयन्
ज्येष्ठसाम्ना च देवेशं जगौ नारायण : प्रभु :
brahmā bhavaṃ tadāstauṣīdrathaṃtaramudīrayan
jyēṣṭhasāmnā ca dēvēṡaṃ jagau nārāyaṇa : prabhuh
In the Upamanyu upākhyāna of mahābhārata , it is described that when the lord appeared before upamanyu, Lord Brahma praised and pleased Shiva by singing the praises from the Rathantara Saama and Lord Nārāyana sung the praises from the Jyeshta Saama .

Sāma - sweet , mild , pleasant , gentle Sāmapriya also means one who is fond of such sweet , pleasant and gentle words and use of such language
अमृतस्यन्दिनीं वाचं चन्दनस्पर्शशीतलां
सर्वत्रैव प्रयुञ्जानः शिवलोके महीयते - शिवधर्मोत्तरे
amṛtasyandinīṃ vācaṃ candanasparṡaṡītalāṃ
sarvatraiva prayuñjānaḥ ṡivalōkē mahīyatē - ṡivadharmōttarē
One who always uses pleasant gentle words which showers nectar , and which is chill like the touch of sandal paste is respected in the shivaloka .

One of the names of Lord Shiva is Saamaasyaha in the Shiva sahasranama. It means one whose face is the Saama Veda. It also means Shiva is one who sings the Saama Veda.

Saama is also related to sama. equality. The Lord loves all equally. He is not partial.

Bhasma means vibhooti - holy ash. Udhoolita means smeared with and vigraha means the form. Lord Shiva is one who smears Bhasma on His body. Glory of Bhasma is mentioned in various scriptures as follows: 
पापानां रोगाणां मायापाशस्यच भर्त्सनात् भस्म
pāpānāṃ rōgāṇāṃ māyāpāṡasyaca bhartsanāt bhasma Because it drives away from us sin , diseases and the bondage of ignorance it is called bhasma.
पापं नाशयते कृत्स्नं अपि जन्मशतार्जितं - जाबालोपनिशद्
pāpaṃ nāṡayatē kṛtsnaṃ api janmaṡatārjitaṃ - jābālōpaniṡad It completely destroys all the sins which have been earned in hundreds of births .

रक्षार्थं मङ्गलार्थं च पवित्रार्थं च भामिनि
लाञ्चनार्थं च भक्तानां भस्म दत्तं पुरा मया - अनुशाशनिके पर्वणि महाभारते rakṣārthaṃ maṅgalārthaṃ ca pavitrārthaṃ ca bhāmini lāñcanārthaṃ ca bhaktānāṃ bhasma dattaṃ purā mayā - anuṡāṡanikē parvaṇi mahābhāratē For the purpose of protection , auspiciousness , purification and as a symbol of myself , I once gave vibhuti bhasma ( holy ash ) to my devotees.

भासनात् भासितं प्रोक्तं भस्म पापस्य भर्त्सनात्
भूतिर् भूतिकरी पुंसां रक्षा रक्षाकरी पुन :
bhāsanāt bhāsitaṃ prōktaṃ bhasma pāpasya bhartsanāt
bhūtir bhūtikarī puṃsāṃ rakṣā rakṣākarī puna :

It is called bhasita for it illuminates us , brightens us . It is called bhasma for it threatens and drives away sins . It is known as bhooti for it creates wealth and known as raksha for it gives us protection .
उद्धूलनं त्रिपुण्ड्रं च मायापाशनिवृत्तये
आचरन्ति मुनिश्रेष्ठा अथर्वशिरसि स्थितं - ब्रम्होत्तरखण्डे uddhūlanaṃ tripuṇḍraṃ ca māyāpāṡanivṛttayē
ācaranti muniṡrēṣṭhā atharvaṡirasi sthitaṃ - bramhōttarakhaṇḍē
To free themselves from the bondage of Maayaa , the great sages apply ash as tripundra ( three lines in forehead and other eleven parts and apply it all over the body as bhasma snaana ( bath with holy ash ) following the methods instructed through atharvasheershopanishad .

भस्म ज्ञानजनकं
bhasma jñānajanakaṃ
Bhasma creates true wisdom.

बहुनोक्तेन किं भस्मधारणं मोक्षसाधनं
भस्मना नित्ययुक्तस्य ज्ञानमुत्पद्यतेऽचिरात्
bahunōktēna kiṃ bhasmadhāraṇaṃ mōkṣasādhanaṃ
bhasmanā nityayuktasya jñānamutpadyatē'cirāt
The above verses declare that applying holy ash will increase wisdom and leads us in the path of liberation .

महाभस्म महादेवो महामायावभासक :
mahābhasma mahādēvō mahāmāyāvabhāsaka :

The great ash is none other than the greatest of the lords Mahādeva - Shiva . He is the one who illuminates māyā.

Applying Bhasma is a symbol of detachment and dropping of body-identification.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
