3 of 3 of Adi Shankaracharya
3 of 17 of this series
On the auspicious occasion of Guru Poornima, I offer this post at the Lotus feet, kamalarvindam, of the great sage Adi Shankaracharya.
The most blessed Sage spoke to me again many times in the last few weeks after I returned from Shri Sailam Yatra in June and more so on 11.07.22. I made a yatra between 18th and 23rd June 2022 and we visited the sacred and divine sanctuary Shri Sailam the second time. My previous yatra to this holy sanctum was in the first week of February of 2012.
He Thus spoke-
“The Shri Shailam yatra has been extremely beneficial for you my dear child because I have given you a heap full of blessings. The energies endowed to you from the sacred premises of the Jyotirling by me will assist you in writing this filled article which is a guide to communicate to the society about how to re-order your minds, your lives, and rich culture and glorious civilization of your country in a new way.
Now touch your fine memory and recall that you at an instant visited the cave of Dunagiri astrally on 07.07.22. On this day, you were given a commandment by God through Divine Light and energy that you must tell the world about your exclusive experiences with Adi Shankaracharya going on over the previous many days. Do not forget to re-tell what Parmatma, the sweet Lord told you that day.”
Obeying the wish of Adi Shankaracharya, I take this opportunity to tell you what commandment Parmatma gave me on 07.07.22-
“You are making new manuscripts. These manuscripts are very important; they will change the course of the country. Yug Parivartan, people do not understand that you are doing such an important job. Naye shastra navin yug ke liye, Bharat hi nav chetna ka strot banne wala hai 326 sal mei. Make new scriptures.”
If you have not read the post in which I had received extremely unexpected but useful directives straight from Parmatma, God in a cave, then,
(1) I quote some lines from my post of 19.10.14.
The experience I got in the cave of Babaji left me spellbound and completely mesmerized; I felt silent for quite a few days that followed.
“Sarika why are you here? Came the voice from the rays of Light in the cave.
“This cave is very old and you have been called here after many years after complete preparation of your mind and body. Your body will not decay for it will work for the Divine always. There is no test left to get approvals from me now as you have mastered the art of living all your moments with the will of God. Babaji called Lahiri Mahasaya here to initiate him into a new wave of Kriya shiksha (education). With the Satyug turning towards more positive, new energies have to be unleashed through many centres in India and abroad from which more people turn spiritual. As more people turn spiritual, the age of Truth or Satyug will appear quicker in time.
You have started a quiet movement in all parts of the globe of unleashing new energies which are benign and spiritual. This is Babaji’s big project where Sanatan Dharma or Eternal laws of righteousness is being evoked after its lapse all over the world in the past many decades.
Simplicity, truthfulness and purity are the words and tenets that each man should follow now to speed up the process of bringing virtues, truthfulness and piousness back in society and mankind.
You have been discharged the duty of awakening people far and wide in all parts of the world through your very original and creative writing. It has energy, solutions and a road map to guide all wanderers and anchor them to this blog. In future, you shall write articles that shall reveal hidden knowledge and concealed information that God has been keeping to itself from time immemorial. It is my will that that sacred, secreted knowledge should be opened up now and given to mankind because in today’s world all the givers of spiritual knowledge are either running after their own prestige or money or vying with each other in bad competition. They have not surrendered their ego (ahankar) and are still in darkness (Maya). Merely giving good discourses is not enough. Unless true and right knowledge (gyan) dawns on humans, they cannot relieve themselves of the bad karmas and lack of spiritual wisdom (bodh). Pure knowledge (Atma Gyan) should be dispensed through an authentic source so that adulteration and putrefaction is avoided. Nobody can swim across the ocean of delusion (bhram) unless their Guide knows to swim very well. Verbal help is of no use, it will not save the drowning victim.
Regular periods of purification, prolonged periods of meditation and continuous efforts of cleansing are required of all humans to salvage their souls of their incessant darkness and lack of wisdom and truth.
If you practice each day even with a little effort, your soul can redeem itself so that it can shine with brightness of Satya, Dharma and Shudh Karma – Truth, righteousness and pure actions.”
I was intrigued and spellbound today morning because the exalted Sage also told me that the two articles that I wrote after I visited Shri Sailam in 2012 were written because I was attuned to him and his grace fell on me after I visited his cave in Paldhara! Well, prior to this day, I was unaware of this truth.
These were his words of great wisdom for all of us which I have documented in my old post from 2012.
(2) I quote his words here.
“God is righteousness. Learn to listen to the voice of God present in your soul. There is a veil over our mind or manas which either distorts or stops us from listening to the voice of our Soul. When we associate and socialize a lot with the worldly and unspiritual people, the ability to penetrate inside our soul diminishes because all of them, barring just a few are bahirmukhi or extroverted people, they are not pure because of worldly or selfish thoughts. Therefore, be prudent in choosing the quality of people and the time spent with them.
Those people who learn the art of concentration and meditation on God will be able to focus their attention inwards with regular practice.
The attention span to listen attentively begins with concentration. Concentration is built and increased by meditation.
One reason for lack of attention and concentration is lack of vision. If one attempts to achieve higher goals and purpose of spiritual aspirations, he/she must have a vision, a much larger vision and their minds will be focused and concentrated in spite of whatever external conditions are- favourable or adverse. That is to say that if-
One must have a great vision in life, the mind will constantly be focused irrespective of external conditions.
People find it difficult to listen to the voice of their soul because of several reasons.
If one aspires to create a vision; if someone is desirous of having a great vision, that individual has to undergo various life experiences and learn from them. The ability to learn from life experiences is an art and ingenuity.
While we undergo various life experiences, there is a voice inside us that speaks to us.
Sit down calmly a few times in a day as well as before retiring at night; focus and watch your breath coming in and going out- concentrate, meditate, chant and then sit still as long as you can in peace and silence.
All this will enable and empower yourself to listen to this faint voice that speaks to you. It guides you; it enlightens you; it leads you to the right act and the right path; it tells you the most suitable answer and most of all it gives you tranquillity amidst unrest and confusion.
Listening with concentration is a talent and skill that serious seekers must cultivate in order to smoothen and heighten their spiritual path and to connect directly with God present inside quickly.”
During the last so many days, the reclusive Sage has been endowing me with so much benediction that no moment has passed when I have not been under his canopy of mercy and blessing. He also revealed so much more about our lost rich heritage, about our ancient India, Bharat. This is sheer compassion and divine grace on us.
Dear readers, today morning he assigned me the task of posting this write up on the auspicious day of Guru Poornima, while I was not prepared because what he has given me is unlimited. What I must leave and what I must tell was the dilemma. Everything that he said was far too precious to be lost or overlooked. I pleaded to him to select for me what must be the published content. Quickly, he responded.
I have opened my diary and I am adding the following master piece, mind blowing, unknown facts from the Great Sage which I was bestowed on during my yatra of Shri Sailam freshly and a lot after I came back home.
I quote my notes from my diary.
Adi Shankaracharya on 21.06.22 in Shri Sailam early morning during Abhishekam in Shri Sailam.
(1) 3 crore years ago, God made a sankalpa of 12 Jyotirlings, places of underground spiritual energies for the welfare of the world.

(2) Timeline and prominent places where maximum ancient, Holy Scriptures were written in India in the past.
2 Places in North India and 4 places in South India where work of writing Holy Scriptures and Documentation was done on a large scale by the Rishis in the past.

- Himalayas 65,004 years ago.
- *Kashi 6,310 years.
South India (4)
- Pondicherry 75,000 years.
- Kanchipuram 9,000 years back.
- Coimbatoor 7,500 years.
- Sringeri 2000 years.
(3) *About the oldest holy city in the world- Kashi
1st place of civilization in the world.
1st place where Sanskrit was born.
1st place where Hindi was born.
1st place where the first literature, 1st Veda was written. It was Rig Veda. They were formal, hand written, structured scriptures.
1st place where the first holy scripture was written on bhoj patra and tamra patra (bark of bhoj tree and copper plates respectively)
1st University in the world made in Bharat 5,624 years ago- Kashi Vishwavidyalaya.
1st human being to attain ‘Moksha’ was also in Kashi- Sage Vishwamitra. It was 1,25,000,00 years ago. 1 crore, 25 lakhs years back in time. On his birthplace of that life of 1,25,000,00 years ago, stands the majestic Kashi Vishwanath mandir today, one of the 12 Jyotirlinga in Bharat!
My Koti Koti pranaam to Parmatma and all the Rishis on Guru Poornima for giving me the concealed information from the stored akashic recordings!
(4) About Kashi Vishwa Vidyalaya
5,03,67,342 years ago- 5 crores, 3 lakhs, 67 thousand, three hundred forty-two years ago, Parmatman decided, had a ‘sankalpa’ of building a ‘Vishwa Vidyalaya’, a University, 1st of its kind in the world in Kashi called Kashi Vishwa Vidyalaya. It existed more than 5,624 years ago even before Mahabharat time. Today on the same place, there is BHU, Banaras Hindu University.
Kashi Vishwa Vidyalaya was made with one main purpose- to bring the best minds, scholars, philosophers in one place and give a platform and chance to write their realizations in a book for people. Besides, their thesis should be kept safely in a library. Sanskrit was their only language at that time.
This University had all the best Sanskrit ‘granth’ or scriptures. Unfortunately, 726 years ago, all of them were systematically destroyed or burnt completely until not even their ash was remaining by the people who wished to erase our rich heritage and glorious past. The Moghuls ensured nothing was left in medieval times of our greatest spiritual achievements earned by the ancient Rishis.
(5) About Kashyap Maharishi and Kashmir
1st life as a Rishi– In one of his incarnations, Kashyap Maharishi was born in Rishikesh 79,994 years ago. To do tapasya of Om and ‘maun’, he migrated to today’s Kashmir and lived there for 36 years. He made a hut near river Saraswati and meditated on Om. That place was later named ‘Chintanpura’ which is in today’s POK.
2nd life in Kashmir again as a Rishi and Guru- 6,275 years ago. His Ashram’s name- ‘Matri Ashish’. Matri means mother, Goddess Saraswati here.
3rd life as a Rishi and Guru in Chintanpura, Kashmir– 4,695 years ago. His Ashram’s name- Matri Kripa. During all times, he was worshipping Ma Saraswati.
(6) Other Rishis and their Ashrams and timeline in Kashmir.
- Matri Ashish—Kashyapa Maharishi—6,275 years ago.
- Swarga Ashram—Bhardwaj Rishi—- 5,972 years ago.
- Parmarth Niketan–Bhardwaj Rishi— 5,622 years ago.
- Matri Kripa—Kashyapa Maharishi– 4,695 years ago.
- Prerna Dham—Kardam Rishi—– 3,394 years ago.
- Yoga Niketan—Kardam Rishi—- 1,801 years ago.
Yoga Niketan was the last ashram, after this the foreign invaders came into India slowly. There was a gap of 504 years between Yoga Niketan and 1st invasion. After 526.5 years from now, Kashmir will again have these Gurukuls one by one in the same order, sequence with the same names of ashram and Rishis. It will be 3rd time that these Gurukuls will be made. This is God’s wish or sankalpa made 35 lakh years ago, 35,00,000 years ago.
Interestingly, today 3 names of these Ashrams are found in Rishikesh near sacred river Ganga. They are- Swarga Ashram, Parmarth Niketan and Yoga Niketan.
On 11.07.22 late evening, the revered and very exalted Sage spoke to me in Hindi. He gave a message to all of us to offer us solace during these trying times. Since time is limited today, the translation from Hindi to English shall happen later. I reproduce the message verbatim. I am submitting this article at this holy hour; I shall write more if necessary, in the next few days.
भारत एक अखंड राष्ट्र ।
अखंड राष्ट्र भारत, अद्वितीय भारतीय ।
दिशा और ध्येय – सम्पूर्ण राष्ट्र एवं भारतियों की उन्नति एवं समृद्धि।
पुरातन काल की विद्या एवं शिक्षा को अपने जीवन में लाओ, उससे स्थिर शान्ति मिलेगी। मन की साधना करो, शरीर को योग से समृद्ध करो और आत्मा को सत्य से जगाओ।
योग, ईश्वर की मनुष्य को, सर्वोत्तम भेंट है, मानवता के कल्याण एवं समाज सुधार के लिए।
मन की प्रभुत्ता, विचार शक्ति का उदय एवं प्राचीन ऋषि मुनियों से सच्ची प्रार्थना करो, तुम्हारा कल्याण होगा।
एक युग से दूसरे युग की ओर जब जाते हैं तो पहले पहल अशान्ति एवं दुख प्राप्त होता है। यह ही एक संकेत है कि हम युग परिवर्तन की ओर अग्रसर हो चुके हैं।
यह क्रांति का समय है, यह बारह वर्ष का काल एक वर्ग के लोगों के लिए ही है।
रोहिणी विकास स्तंभ ग्रहण – शुरू हुआ १०. ०७. २२ प्रातः ४:३२ मिनट पर। इसे एक घण्टा लगा यज्ञों द्वारा स्थापित करने में।
यह पूर्ण रूप से चालू होगा २३ अगस्त २०२२ और ११ वर्ष ५ महीनें तक खूब तेज़ी से अपनी शक्ति देगा।
३१ जनवरी २०३४ से, यानि ११ वर्ष ५ महीनें अपनी तेजी दिखाने के बाद यह मध्यम स्वरुप में आ जाएगा।
१ फ़रवरी २०३४ से इसकी गति धीमी हो जाएगी और धीमी होते होते, १ सितम्बर २०३४ को यह ग्रहण रुक जाएगा।
११ वर्ष + ५ महीनें + ७ महीनें = १२ वर्ष सम्पूर्ण
तेज़ गति + धीमी गति
१. जो बहुत गहरी नींद में है या जिसकी चेतना मर चुकी है वो वर्ग नहीं जागेगा।
२. जो वर्ग सपना देख रहा था, वो जागेगा। वह सपना क्यों देख रहा था ? उसे देश में कहा गया ७५ साल से कि तुम सहिष्णु बनो, समानता रखो और मान लो कि सब धर्म एक समान हैं। परन्तु उसे यह भी छूट नहीं दी गई कि अपनी पुरानी, अति उत्तम ऋषियों द्वारा दी गई योग विद्या प्राप्त हो सके। यदि हम अपनी सोच केवल आधुनिक प्रगति की ओर ले जाएँगे तो हमें अध्यात्मिक, आत्मिक शक्तियाँ नव निर्माण के लिए कभी प्राप्त नहीं होंगी।
३. प्राचीन योग विद्या, और आधुनिक शिक्षा की अच्छी प्रणाली का समन्वय हो, यह संविधान में बदलाव आना चाहिए जल्द से जल्द। इसके द्वारा बच्चों का विकास पूर्ण रूप से होकर समाज के लिए लाभदायी होगा, समाज, देश का पूर्ण हित होगा।
४. भविष्य में संविधान में नारी शक्ति, नारी का सशक्त होना अनिवार्य है। यदि नारी का निरंतर अपमान या शोषण होगा, भारत देश की ज्योति नहीं जलेगी। उसे जगाने के लिए देवी माँ जगदम्बा की कृपा चाहिए। नारी शक्ति की निंदा, खिल्ली उड़ाना या उसे हास्य की वस्तु प्रस्तुत करना न केवल समाज में असंतोष फैलाता है, परन्तु देश को उन्नति से रोकता है।
शालीनता, गंभीरता एवं शान्ति से देश का नया इतिहास अपने हाथों एवं पुरुषार्थ से लिखो, तुम्हे ईश्वर का सानिध्य, कृपा एवं समृद्धि मिलेगी। बेटी, तुम भी देश को जगाओ हमारे द्वारा, हमारी ज्योति द्वारा, हमारे संदेशों द्वारा, हमारा तुम पर चिरकाल तक आशीर्वाद, सुरक्षा एवं कृपा बनी रहेगी। तुम्हारा कोई अहित नहीं कर सकेगा, जो मन में कभी ऐसा सोचेगा एक बार भी, वो अपने ही आप को उस पाप की सज़ा देगा।
‘ज्योति मार्ग’ ईश्वर को जानने का सर्वश्रेष्ठ एवं निष्पाप मार्ग है जिसे ऋषियों ने ईश्वर से पाया है। वही मार्ग तुम कलियुग में पहली बार प्रस्तुत कर रही हो। तुम्हारी और इस मार्ग की हम पूर्ण रूप से सुरक्षा और बढ़ावा दे रहे हैं क्योंकि यह ईश्वर की इच्छा है।
लोग इसे धीरे धीरे ही समझेंगे क्योंकि यह इतना विशाल, गहरा एवं शालीनता का है। इसमें केवल सत्य है। यह इतना सरल भी है कि मनुष्य इसका मूल्य नहीं कर रहा है क्योंकि उन्हें विश्वास ही नहीं आता कि जब ईश्वर कृपा होती है तो ईश्वर कुछ ही शब्दों में साक्षात्कार हो जाता है।
तुम अपना कार्य पूर्ण निष्ठा और भक्ति से कर रही हो जिससे यह ज्योति आने वाले युगों में प्रज्जवलित होगी, केवल अवसर और अनुकूल समय होना चाहिए। मेरे वचन जल्द ही सत्य होंगे, सनातन धर्म ही भारत देश को जगाएगा और सारे विश्व में पुनः ज्ञान, तप, धर्म, योग की ज्योति प्रखर करेगा।
केवल भारत एक देश है जिसके पास आज आत्म ज्ञान, ईश्वर को जानने का सत्य प्राप्त है इसलिए वह सबसे महान देश है।
ज्ञानियों के, ऋषियों के तप द्वारा यह सत्य भक्ति भाव, सरलता एवं निष्ठा से जाना जा सकता है।
तुम उनका ही मार्ग दर्शन करो जो सच्चे भाव एवं सहजता से तुम्हें प्रार्थना करें, अपनी याचिका दें। उनका कल्याण होगा। जो इसका मूल्य नहीं करते, उन्हें सदा के लिए छोड़ दो।
अपनी website को सदा सुरक्षित रखना। यह कठोर परिश्रम, त्याग और तुम्हारी तपस्या का फल है। यह जन कल्याण के लिये है, विशेषकर ज्ञानियों, जिज्ञासु एवं मुमुक्षुओं के लिए। उन्हें मेरी आशीष मिलेगी यदि यह सत्य मन में धारण किया। तुम निर्भय होकर अपना कार्य करती रहो, मैं तुम्हे सदा के लिए ‘अभय दान‘ देता हूँ – तुम्हें केवल यश, हर्ष एवं आशीष मिलेगा।
सदा तुम्हारा हितकारी।
Bharat, an undivided Nation.
Undivided Nation Bharat, peerless Indians.
Direction and Objective- A whole nation and progress and prosperity of all Bhartiya
Bring back ancient education and teachings into your life, you will get enduring peace with it. Study your mind and do its related practices, with the help of Yoga enrich your body and enlighten your Atma with the Truth.
Yoga is the greatest gift to humanity by Ishwar, God, for the welfare of all the people and to improve the status of the society.
With the eminence of your mind, will, invoke a sincere prayer to the ancient Rishis and munis, you shall be gratified.
When we are in transition from one era to another, there is unrest and sadness. This is an indication that we have augmented into a new era.
This is a period of revolution, the phase of next twelve years are meant for a specific category of people.
‘Rohini Vikas stambh grahan’ (eclipse)- it started on 10.07.22 at 4.32 a.m. With ‘yagya’, it took an hour to launch it.
It will be fully operational from 23rd August 2022 and for 11 years and 5 months it will be combusting and tendering its power.
From 31st January 2034, it shall begin to let up and become moderate.
Starting from 1st February 2034, its tempo shall slow down and after receding slowly from 1st September 2034, this eclipse shall stop.
11 years+ 5 months+ 7 months= 12 whole years.
Fast speed + slow speed.
1. People who are in very deep slumber or whose consciousness has succumbed and abated, that class shall not awake.
2. A class which was living in a certain dream, that class will awake. Why did this class held on to this dream? Because it was reiterated to them for 75 years that you must be tolerant, you must be modest, egalitarian, and believe that all religions are equal. However, that society or section of people were also not given the freedom of accessing, acquiring and applauding their ancient, supreme knowledge of Yoga and Truth endowed and bestowed by the enlightened Rishis of yore.
If we only think of progressing towards modern development, we shall never garner spiritual energies from our rich past to augment a new era.
Therefore, we must conciliate and align ancient yogic practices with modern education and bring harmony in society; we must make amendments in our Constitution for this purpose as soon as it is possible. Owing to such a move, the development of children of our country will be of overall development and the society shall grow.
In future, the Constitution of India must make further amendments to empower the women of India. If women are perpetually exploited or degraded, the Light of Bharat desh shall not ignite. To re-kindle that Light, the blessing of Ma Jagdamba is a requisite. To demean a woman’s power, to present her as a low being or mock at her state of being or caricature or belittlement of her divine character, not only brings about a depression and dissatisfaction in the society we live in, but then on the other hand, it hampers the growth of the country.
With a dignified, sober and calm attitude, recreate the history of your nation with your own industry and effort, you shall be bestowed with His proximity, blessings and prosperity. My dear daughter, you must also awaken this country with us, with our Light, our messages; you shall be accorded our blessings, protection and boons. No one will be able to harm you; whoever even thinks of harming you in the mind even once, shall receive the punishment because of his or her own bad deeds.
‘Jyoti Marg’ is the foremost and guileless Path to discover God which the Rishis received from God directly. You are presenting to the world for the first time the same path in ‘Kaliyug.’ We are protecting and promoting you as well as this Path as this is the will of God.
People are going to understand ‘Jyoti Marg’ very slowly because this Path is very wide, deep and of solemnity. It has only the Truth. Nonetheless, this Path is so easy that people will not be able to evaluate its worth because it is impossible for them to believe that God can ever be so easy to encounter and experience with such little and simple words!
You are doing your service with full dedication and devotion with which this Light of God will in coming eras will be ablaze, it is just a matter of favourable time and opportunity. My words will prove to be true one day, only Sanatan Dharma will awake Bharat, because of this Light, the world will again practice and follow Gyan (knowledge), Dharma (righteousness), Tapa (penance) and Yoga (union with God).
Today only Bharat in the world has the knowledge of Atma, the knowledge to know God, Truth therefore it is the greatest nation.
Owing to the penance of the Gyanis and the Rishis, one may know the Truth with a heart of devotion, simplicity and sincerity.
You must guide only those people who plead to you with a clean and sincere heart, they shall be blessed. Those who do not care for it, leave them for good.
Look after your website and protect it well. It has been made with your hard work, sacrifice and penance. This is for the welfare of all the people specially who are knowledgeable, desirous and have a fire and tempest for knowing God. They are going to get my blessings if they accept and live this Truth. You must be fearless in continuing your work, I bestow you with a boon of ‘Abhay daan’– you will achieve only reputation, ecstasy and benediction. May you live long.
Always your well-wisher.
This section is very important. It is about my communication with Adi Shankaracharya between 17th and 22nd July on the topic- What is Sanatan Dharma? Who else is better equipped than Him, the wisest Sage to have expounded on this particular topic?
सनातन धर्म क्या है ?
प्रश्न : काशी विश्वविद्यालय में कौन सी पांडुलिपियाँ लिखी गई जिन्हें मुगलों ने नष्ट कर डाला?
उत्तर : वे पुस्तकें थीं सनातन धर्म पर, एवं धार्मिक विश्लेषण पर।
प्रश्न : सनातन धर्म क्या है? उसमें क्या निहित है?
उत्तर : भूमिका-
भारत में आदिकाल पहले सनातन धर्म का जन्म हुआ है । यह बहुत प्राचीन ऋषियों ने अपने ध्यान के कठोर परिश्रम से ईश्वर से आशीर्वाद एवं कृपा में प्राप्त किया था । यह धर्म सनातन है और कभी नष्ट नहीं होने वाला है । यह अनंत काल के लिए ईश्वर की मानवता को स्वयं को, परमात्मा को जानने के हेतु अतुलनिय भेंट व कृपा है । इस धर्म को कोई भी, कभी नाश नहीं कर सकता है, कारण ईश्वर ऐसा कभी होने नहीं देंगे । यह अनंत काल भारत में रहेगा ।
१) केवल एक सनातन धर्म है पूरे विश्व में जो सब विश्व के मज़हबों एवं जन जातियों के लिए अनुकूल है ।
२) केवल सनातन धर्म है जो एक राष्ट्र, एक अखंड राष्ट्र की बात सिखाता है, अपनी भूमि को, राष्ट्र को, धरती को माता, राष्ट्र को माता मानता है । उसे धरती माता, राष्ट्र माता कहता है ।
३) सनातन धर्म सहिष्णु है, सब मज़हबों का आदर करता है ।
४) केवल एक सनातन धर्म है, जिसमें ‘वैराग्य’ सिखाया जाता है । इसलिए बहुत सारे संन्यासी अपने धर्म की रक्षा के लिए, अपने राष्ट्र के लिए, देश में, उसकी उन्नति, समृद्धि के लिए योग दान देते आए हैं ।
वैराग्य मतलब बिना मोह के, लोभ के कर्म करते रहें और फल की इच्छा प्रभु पर छोड़ें। ईश्वर की इच्छा पर चलें और ईश्वर की इच्छा को स्वीकार करें। विलासिता मनुष्य को नर्क में धकेलती है ।
५) सनातन धर्म हिंसा नहीं सिखाता, जीवन दान, त्याग, तपस्या सिखाता है । जीव हत्या, मानव हत्या घोर पाप है ।
६) धरती का ऋण, मातृ -पिता, पित्रों का ऋण भी सनातन धर्म में है । इससे हमारी पृथ्वी की सदा रक्षा होती रहती है । पृथ्वी को, पर्यावरण को, हमें अपनी आने वाली पीढ़ियों के लिए बचाना होता है क्योंकि हम पर पाँच तत्त्वों का, पित्रों का, गुरुजनों का एवं धरती माता का ऋण बना रहता है ।
७) सनातन धर्म शान्ति का धर्म है, यह शान्ति फ़ैलाने की बात करता है । इसमें योग, प्राणायाम और ध्यान सम्मिलित हैं जिससे मन, इन्द्रियाँ एवं शरीर और आत्मा का पूर्ण संतुलन बन जाता है । जब संतुलन बना रहता है, मन में शान्ति स्थिर रहती है । शांत मन में केवल विकास, उन्नति, प्रेम, आलोक, त्याग, तप और ईश्वर प्रेम उत्पन्न होता है । विचलित, असंगठित, अशांत मन में कुविचार होते हैं और वे गलत दिशा का स्त्रोत हैं ।
८) सनातन धर्म ‘प्रत्याहार’ सिखाता है, संयम में रहने की प्रेरणा देता है। दूसरों की संपत्ति, दूसरों की सामग्री में मन नहीं रखना चाहिये, दूसरों की संस्कृति, आस्था का खण्डन कभी नहीं सिखाता ।
‘प्रत्याहार’ सनातन धर्म का प्रतीक है, संयम इसकी शोभा और शालीनता ।
९) सनातन धर्म एक परमात्मा, एक शक्ति, एक से ही सबकी उत्पत्ति, एक ज्योति, एक प्रकाश और सबमें एक परमात्मा की ही चेतना को मानता है। यही पुरातन ज्ञान ऋषियों ने वेदों द्वारा संकलन अपनी पुस्तकें उपनिषद एवं ताम्र पत्रों में छन्दों द्वारा, मंत्रों द्वारा या छोटी छोटी पंक्तियों द्वारा लिखा है । काशी विश्वविद्यालय में सनातन धर्म के बारे में ताम्र पत्रों में बताया था।
१०) सनातन धर्म दया करना सिखाता है, सब जीवों पर दया करो ।
११) ऋषियों ने इस सत्य को प्रमाण द्वारा सिद्ध किया कि संसार क्षणभंगुर है और ईश्वर नित्य । सनातन धर्म ईश्वर को सत्य, नित्य और संसार को असत्य या मिथ्या मानता है । मोह और वासना जीवात्मा को दुःख, यातना और पतन देते हैं। अत: मनुष्यों को इनका त्याग करना ही उत्तम माना गया है ।
१२) इस धर्म में प्रायश्चित को भी स्थान दिया जिससे जीवात्मा का शुद्धिकरण होता है ।
१३) सनातन धर्म ही एक ऐसा धर्म है जिसमें मन क्या है? मन कैसे सक्रिय या अक्रिय बनता है? कर्म क्या है? किन कर्मों से सुख प्राप्त होता है, किन से दुःख? मन का स्वभाव क्या है? मन की चंचलता कैसे रोकें? यह ऋषियों ने अपने पांडुलिपियों में लिखा था काशी विश्वविद्यालय में जिन्हें मुगलों ने नष्ट कर डाला ।
१४) आत्मा क्या है? चेतना क्या है? आत्मा किस प्रकार जानी जाती है? वह भी केवल सनातन धर्म के ग्रंथों में लिखा है ।
१५) सनातन हिन्दू धर्म पुनर्जीवन मानता है जिसके कारण मनुष्य वर्तमान जीवन को उत्तम बनाने की चेष्टा करता है और पाप करने से डरता है ।
१६) सनातन धर्म का प्रतीक ॐ है । ॐ शांति का प्रतीक है । ॐ मन को शांति देता है । ॐ का जप करो, ॐ का ध्यान करो । ॐ की साधना अति उत्तम है । ॐ कल्याणकारी है, अपना कल्याण करो । ॐ की उपासना हितकारी और मोक्षदायिनी है । ॐ की ध्वनि पावन है, वह तुम्हें दिव्य ऊर्जा देती है । ॐ को नमस्कार करो, ॐ को ग्रहण करो, वह तुम्हें अनेक शुभ फल और अति उत्तम जन्म और कर्म करने की प्रेरणा देगा । ॐ निराकार ईश्वर का भी प्रतीक है, स्वयं को समर्पित करो।

A: Those were manuscripts on Sanatan Dharma and the analysis of related religious topics.
Q: What is Sanatan Dharma? What comprises Sanatan Dharma?
Sanatan Dharma originated in Bharat during primeval, very ancient times in bygone epoch. The very early Rishis or Light Masters brought it down from God with their hard work and penance through their meditations. They received it due to bestowed benediction and grace of God upon them. This Dharma is eternal and it will never be lost or destroyed. For infinite time, this is a priceless gift and blessing to humanity given by Parmeshwar Lord, to seek the Truth within and to know God. Nobody at any given point of time will be able to destroy Sanatan Dharma, because God will never allow such a thing to befall humanity. It will remain in Bharat till Eternity.
- It is only Sanatan Dharma in the whole world that is advantageous for all paths and sects.
- It is only Sanatan Dharma which advocates one nation, one undivided nation. It considers the nation and land as Mother. It is called Dharti Mata, Rashtra Mata.
- Sanatan Dharma is tolerant; it respects all faiths.
- Only in Sanatan Dharma the followers are taught ‘Vairagya’- To protect their nation, to protect their Dharma, many renunciants or sannyasis have contributed for the nation. They have been contributing also for the progress and prosperity of their nation, Bharat.
‘Vairagya’ means without attachment or expectations; one must perform actions and the result of them must be rested in the hands of God. One must accept the wish of God with this attitude. Indulgence is the gate to hell for a human being.
- Sanatan Dharma does not propound violence. On the contrary, it teaches non-violence, saving life, to do sacrifice and penance. Killing other living beings and people are severe sins.
- Sanatan Dharma ensues debt to Mother Earth, parents, forefathers. Because of this precept, Mother Earth is protected. This planet and the environment must be preserved for next generations because we are obligated to the five elements, forefathers, teachers and the Earth.
- Sanatan Dharma is the religion of peace; it advocates spreading peace. In it are incorporated Yoga, Pranayam and meditation which balances all- the mind, senses, body and Spirit. When the balance is maintained, there is lasting peace in the mind. In a peaceful mind there are thoughts of progress, love, illumination, renunciation, penance and love for God. In an agitated, disorganized, restless mind are housed wrong thoughts which drive people into wrong direction.
- Sanatan Dharma teaches ‘pratyahar’, it motivates us to be in self-control. Desiring for taking other people’s possessions and properties is prohibited. Challenging other cultures and faiths is also disallowed. ‘Pratyahar’ is the mark of Sanatan Dharma, self-restrain its beauty and grace.
- Sanatan Dharma believes in one God, one Energy; all are born out of that one Power, one Light, and the same consciousness of one God is present in all living beings. The Rishis have compiled this knowledge in scriptures like Vedas and Upanishads and on copper templates by inscribing verses, mantras, or small lines on them. In Kashi Vishwavidyalaya, such copper templates were made to write about Sanatan Dharma.
- Sanatan Dharma teaches compassion; we must have compassion for all.
- The Rishis had proved a fact with evidence that this world is ephemeral and delusionary and God is truth and everlasting. Sanatan Dharma professes God as permanent and the world fragile. Attachments and lust give pain, sorrow and downfall. Therefore, it is considered good to forsake these vices.
- In this religion, redemption has also been given a place for the reason that atonement purifies the soul of a person.
- It is again only Sanatan Dharma which tells us- What is manas or mind? How does the mind become active or passive? What is Karma? Which actions give happiness, and which sorrow? What is the nature of the mind? How to stop the restlessness of the mind? All this were written by the Rishis in their manuscripts in Kashi Vishwavidyalaya which were destroyed by the Moghal invaders.
- What is Atma? What is consciousness? How to know our Atma? Even this has been written and found only in Sanatan Dharma.
- Sanatan Dharma has faith in reincarnation. This philosophy helps its practitioner to deter from performing sinful actions to get good lives in next incarnations.
- ॐ is the symbol of Sanatan Dharma. ॐ denotes peace. ॐ gives peace of mind. Chant ॐ, meditate on ॐ. The sadhana of ॐ is extremely beneficial. ॐ is auspicious and you must work for your own welfare. Worshipping ॐ is in your welfare as it gives Moksha. The sound of ॐ is pious, it will give you divine energy. Bow to ॐ, accept ॐ, it will give you many sacred rewards, besides very fulfilling and virtuous lives. It will inspire you to do rewarding deeds. ॐ is the symbol of formless God, consecrate your Self to it!
As a closing note, I would like to quote a small para of Part-D from my old post of Maharishi Markandey,
Maharishi Markandey- “The Himalayas in Northern India resonate with the vibrations of hymns of Lord Shiva even today which God vibrated into the ether or akash 3,75,00,995 years ago, (3 crores, 75 lakhs, 9 hundred and 95 years ago) they emanated from the womb of Parmatma Himself. Shiva Rudrashtakam Strotam is one such strotam, through Lord Shiva, God is speaking about His own attributes. The other is Shiv mahimna strotam which was gifted to mankind for redemption or prayashchit so long ago….
The significance of Trishul in Hindu Sanatan Dharma as explained to me by His Holy Adi Shankaracharya on 21.06.22 in the Shri Sailam Jyotirling mandir.
(Concluded- All 3 posts on my conversations with Adi Shankaracharya in this 5th series concluded with God’s grace. They are offered to Parmatma for the people’s good life and spiritual evolution now and for future eras globally. Hari Om Tat Sat, Hari Om Tat Sat, Hari Om Tat Sat)

Dear Sarika Ma,
It is a pleasure to know so much history about our ancient India, especially of Kashmir and Kashi. Our conventional history books seldom reveals this much knowledge about the ancient India. Thanks once again for revealing this very ancient history of our Motherland.
Dear Jerry, I took a long time to reply to you. I was waiting to finish a marathon post of my long drawn conversations with His Holiness Srimad, Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya. I did that just now. I added a video on the significance of Trishul in Sanatana Dharma. It is obvious much of the history was distorted or lost in the past. It is God’s wish now that these immortal sages who were maintaining silence over such a long time reveal to us these lost truths. Many more such truths should be out for us to know I am pleading God. We must know correct history for establishing our own correct identity and beliefs and values. Thank you for reading and appreciating these posts. Bless you. Ma
Dear Sarika Ma,
Thanks for the reply. As far as I understand, more than 1500 years have gone since Adi Shankaracharya’s times and now. Hardly any written or oral evidence exists about the exact course of history. More than that, our ancient Indians was not having the practice of recording correct dates. Our ancient history has been more in the form of myths and stories. Our history Professor used to tell us that the only date of ancient India on which historians agree is the year in which Alexander invaded India. That is because Greek historians accompanying Alexander correctly recorded the event with year and month. All other ancient history of India is mostly in the form of poetry, myths, rock edicts and oral traditions. I think ravages of weather and destructive wars and fires have also destroyed much of the documentary evidence needed for correctly recording our ancient history. Anyway, you are bringing out lot of details about our ancient India with the exact mention of years in which many incidents took place. I hope that the unbiased historians will welcome your writings and I further wish to see the facts that you mention here will be welcomed by the general public also.
Thank you mother🙏🙏
