LIFE IS RAM'S LILA AND OUR KRIDA.
PLAY WITH YOUR INNOCENCE AND TRY TO GIVE PLEASURE OF LOVING LILA TO
HIM AND DERIVE SACRIFICIAL PLEASURE OF PRAYING AND WISHING GOOD TO
OTHERS FOR ONE AND EVERYONE WITHOUT SEEKING SELF GRATIFICATION. HERE
DIVINE LILA AND MORTAL KRIDA OR MORTAL PLAY MEETS. BUT THE RULE OF
THE KRIDA OR MORTAL PLAY IS RESPECTING ALL THE CREATIONS AND WITH
LOVING TRANQUILITY PROVIDING SPACE TO OTHERS, AS WE ARE ALL PART OF
HIS GRACEFUL LILA!
The whole universe was created with divine
wish. This eternal contemplation is the DIVINE LILA or
eternal sports running on three wheels of creation,
sustenance and destruction for recreation. Yet, this divine
lila is mystique and enigmatic puzzle hardly comprehensible
by ordinary mortals. A mortal vision of this divine lila is
generally seen through the colour prism of ordinary knowledge
system human kind has been gathering for several millennia.
This eternal lila when works as bliss we are overjoyed, and
again it works against our wish then we term it "curse" and
pain infliction follows that at times leads to negative
responses to the so called "Divine" Lila! Many lives were
spent to understand, re-understand appreciate the context of
"Eternal Lila" and "Mortal Krida". These few pages are just
another try of my "self talk" to understand its dynamics!
Our lives, our action, our thought, our expressions and
finally our endeavour are nothing but part of bigger karma
theory. Our creation, procreation, pain, pleasure, happiness,
sorrow or even mundane-ness or hallucination of spiritual
insight are part of mortal Krida or game called life and
living. What we do or contemplate are generally out of some
logics emit out of our wishful thinking. Yet sometimes we do
not know the logic but we play on as a fallen leaf floats
with the current of a river.
Now the questions comes are our Mortal Krida are part of
"Divine Lila" or both exist at different levels with some
"chance" of meeting points? Or the "Eternal sports" at the
divine level create a "game called mortal Karma" which works
on ground level yet seen at other level of "Divine Lila".
Does it mean that eternal lila is a play of "wish" of
celestial kind and percolates at our Karma level within the
spectrum of our mortal perception?
There are always doubts and counter doubts, there are
billions of unanswerable questions and yet at our mortal
level we broadly term them Karma and absorb the pain and
celebrate the pleasure of our doings and even non-doings.
As we further delve our "mortal Krida" is perceived,
contemplated and expressed with a stream of thought in our
mind called logic. Yet, there are contra-flow of logic which
tosses off the perception and we try to conclude it as
mystique and enigmatic. So we do understand there are some
sorts of conscious logic system that patterns our Karma,
which is nothing but mortal Krida. Again we do face the
"unknown" designs in our life that fails our logic system and
questions our understandings about the bigger truth.
However, tooling the gathered wisdom we get some indication
that there are many cosmic whirlpool from where the different
un-comprehensible logic emits which are very different from
the stand point of our mental constitution. These can be
loosely termed as divine super logics that pattern the "Lila"
and empatterns our "Krida".
Again, one questions are our "Krida" or Karmic field are just
a concept of our life and living yet the strings are pulled
from somewhere in the cosmos? Broadly yes as per the "given
situation" where we land up but perhaps no as "we tool
ourselves" on the given platform to perform our Karma. Or may
be both which co-exist at macro and micro levels.
Its surely, a given fact that there is something "beyond" our
conception and perception. Yet that dominates our mortal
endeavour, which we call it "Destiny". Here comes the
question whether our destiny is destined and what we do is
some eternal wish fulfillment and not really our own?
To understand this "Destiny", we must look at our past to
realize how we have reached in "Today" and how this today
would govern our tomorrow called destiny. Now, we when deeply
contemplate then we realize that these destinites are nothing
but small "termination" if not absolute target to meet. There
are several destinites in our life, which go towards the
"Destiny" of life. Then there is a destiny beyond our lives.
To realize this destiny, we end up living most part of our
life and when we look back its just "enigma" in intangible
form with some tangible materialistic results. Then the
question comes does our "mortal Krida" is just a waste and
not really sanguine with "Eternal Lila". Perhaps not because
super eternal logic of "Celestial Lila" is above our
conceptions and our "Krida" or Karma field is just the result
of that "Cosmic" optional wish. Yet it gives us time and
avenue to correct our Karma for the eternal inter-play of
Every mortal is created and given a situation or field to
play upon. This can be luxury, misery, pain or incapacitate
lives. Then the eternal destiny roots our selves to pass
through the process of thought wherein the options of Karmas
are given be it abundance of knowledge, wisdom, wealth,
connection and socio-economic status or otherwise of
everything said above.
The Karma or "Krida" we do are optional for sure but sometime
very imposing and we have to follow the tight ropewalk. Then
with passage of time one realizes that its our consciousness
that helps us to root through Karma pattern. This karma
pattern are motivated by our ego, wish, jealousy, lure, lust,
greed and self-gratifying tendencies. At the end of
experimenting with these we realize or atleast term it as our
"Destiny". Perhaps we should call it "Fate". Now the question
comes we reached upto this "Destiny as a stage" out of our
conscious contemplation or we just picked up our self-centric
'lures' to reach this. But again our mind asks whether all
these are part of "Divine Lila" experienced as and at "Mortal
Sages, for centuries have been telling us that life, pain,
misery, lust, greed and ego are to be won over in the play
called "mortal Krida". The "Eternal Lila" of divine is
unattached phenomenon of sports but our "Mortal Krida"
dominantly remains a phenomenon of attachment and attainment
of pleasure or our wishful thinking. Here comes unharmonious
aspect of our play and celestial Lila.
"Maya" is to be handled by detaching from over indulgence of
life and that is possible with deep attachment with Shree
Ram. Does it mean we need to renounce the world of "Maya"?
Definitely not. One has to do duty and play his/her complete
role to the society and be dutiful to all his creation and
procreation. Then one questions how one can be detached with
Maya while catering to the Maya. Well the answer is putting
a limit to Maya and not supplying enough oil of greed to the
wish lamp and slowly our attachment loyalty are to be shifted
to the divine so that our Krida can become an unattached Lila
of divine kind.
Now, we realize that attachment and detachment are two major
components of life, which coexists. The "Krida" called life
is all about handling "attachment" which pulls our Karma to
south. Attachments of life are so passionate factor that
centers around our sense organs. The pleasure derived from it
are so dominating that one tends to scoop through
aberrations, yet desire never ceases and ego never gets
diffused. The anger, violence, pain infliction sadism, then
pop up to create our pattern of Karma which becomes
unsynchronized with the "Celestial Lila" and suffering
derived out of pleasure befall and we conclude a "fatal fate"
be it designed by the self or circumstances. Then comes
blaming the eternity and concluding it as divine design of
biased deliberation of divinity and misguided justice. In
this context if we re-review our endeavour, our doings and
deliberations, then we surely would conclude its our mortal
attachment of "Maya"
that actually ordains all these. And being a "Krida" sport
the loosing out to Maya is a given slope of life and
detaching from it and walking against the current is possible
when we transfer the loyalty of attachment to the Lord in a
selfless manner by constant remembrance and marching for
complete surrender so that Maya of life must cease and one
attaints Mukti from life and death.
To douse the file of mayaful desire two major components
works. One is born with pure innocence that has a sure shot
divine links. That connects one to the divinity. The
connectivity of innocence actually bridges - "Divine Lila and
Mortal Krida". An innocent heart hears the inner voice which
constantly guides us through the life pattern. Paying heed to
this means that we can correct our Karma pattern and
negotiate our turn for the celestial attachment and creating
detachment to the lower truth. Now, this level of human
relationships that pervades our Karma pattern.
Every being is born innocent and purity of heart is the part
of eternal elements that governs the "Divine Lila". Yet, this
innocence when processed through ego, jealousy, lure and lust
gives birth to the shrewd cunningness, that complicates our
Karma pattern at the "mortal Krida" level and results are
obvious, no matter finally we blame the celestial design.
Its true, this world inflicts pains on innocent souls yet as
ultimate truth wins the innocence would win and cater to the
Divine Lila for our journey beyond our body.
Apart from innocence, another factor dominates and design our
Karma pattern. That is Santushti – and this is roughly
translated means being contented with the given. It, though
works on limitations and pass through the ordeal of suffering
but it pops out the value system at play and aberration are
never given a lift. Through the process of tediousness if
Santushti resides in heart then a pattern thinking befulls
and we cruise through successfully the time and space called
"Mortal Krida" is a unique game. It allows a play of sport
with spirit of winning but defeating none. This uniqueness,
if understood then we don't get into Tamasik and Rajwasik
tattwa or element that facilitates conflicts and chaos. But
if we realize the Sattwik element of "Krida" then conflict
resolution is achieved and all play a harmonious role in the
life with a pronounced "truce" in the mind. However, it's not
only through food intake one gets these elements. Its purity
of mind, thought, deliberation, expression and attitude that
allows the flowering of Sattwik element and facilitate the
fair play of "Mortal Krida" with harmonious semblance of
Within these parameters if we see ourselves then we would
realize that all creations are individual and unique. We do
create relations, which are just making the team called
"Mortal Krida" that patterns our karmic endeavour. Yet
scoring and winning comes only at the individualistic level
and that "equates" the purpose of divine Lila where every
soul is on its individual journey elevating through its own
Karmic pattern yet at the form level they live with many
unequal, and here is the play of "Divine Lila" who inflicts
pain to the noble soul to get purify faster and quickens
merging with Parmatman is possible. Again, one who is given
plenty is forced to indulge that hinders the process of Mukti
In the mortal Krida the rule of the game is playing with
innocence and shedding off cunning marks and nefarious
activities. To facilitate a fair play one has to remember
that we are all part of single creative principle; uniquely
and collectively we are one with the divine lila. And to
facilitate the eternal lila we only need to culture love of
selfless kind and provide space for others to flower. The
nurturing the other self, praying for others and loving all
selflessly matter for the emancipation of individual and
salvation for all.
Summing up the theme of Divine Lila and Mortal Krida one
needs to understand the theme in perspective. Divine Lila is
the cosmic play where there is one destiny of "merging back
to the core" or retreat to Parmatman after many a role given
an enacted to all the animate and inanimate. Mortal play or "Krida"
is one micro faction of divine design. We all are subjected
to such a play individually then it widens with interplay of
our micro world i.e. family which furthers as we keep on
building relationships and beyond.
We look at our mortal endeavour as big and most important and
that is propelled with ego, which defocusses our vision of
divine lila. Yet, we have a spiritual thread called "Divine"
name and constant remembrance facilitates a connectivity,
which in turn control our Karma pattern. However, we who are
children of plenty keep our materialism as goal or destiny
and we loose sight of the divine play and we live an enslaved
life with unending cravings and ever fueling lure and lust.
On the other hand who are born in misery are distanced from
divine lila as well; they only survive to eke out a living
and sustain their lives. At both the extreme none is to be
blamed as these are the destined paths to course through but
not necessarily a "divine wish" always and perhaps not the
result of Karma alone.
Being in touch with our inner conscience soaked with eternal
innocence (not necessarily the concept of worldly piousness)
is the matter of much needed contemplation. To unearth the
secrets and relish the Amrit called divine lila is the play
of life and can be relished even after our mortal existence
ceases. The purity of love for divine (not for seeking help)
comes with Simran or constant remembrance. And this process
allows revelations and realization. But keeping it secret,
even from your mentor, is the secret of life and matter of
context for the realized soul.
Also remember no soul has lost its soul track and there is no
concept of " Bhatakana" (lost vision or misdirected) because
divinity is extremely mystic comprehension. But one thing one
should remember that we remain truthful to ourselves our
endeavour without the context of reward and punishment. "
Mortal Krida" is driven by mortal rules logics to discipline
our endeavour! Those value systems are hemming of the road to
allow you a safe passage through life. But there exists a set
of super logic, which is of divine kind and at times our mind
cannot comprehend those secrets with our logic systems.
Perhaps in the divine eye there is no sinner who is to be
destined to hell because with name one gets elevated to the
highest and with pseudo spiritualism one can be degraded to
the minute entity of a neglected atom. Thus to understand the
divine revelation one should just get connected with the
innermost self and do one's work whatever be good or bad but
with pure innocence. To start the journeys just remember, "A
saint has a past and a sinner has a future!" So regret
nothing, never renounce, never give up your duties and
callings and try to introspect and understand our "Mortal
Krida" is harmonious to "Divine lila". This is a play beyond
our pleasure and pain, beyond giving and taking, but just
loving the Lord Shree Ram and equally unharmfuly treating all
HIS creation as HIS and HE HIMSELF. Because, we at mortal
levels, do see, and behave and treat others as unequals but
at the celestial level all are equals and part of HIM only.
To understand this
"Destiny", we must look at our past to realize how we have
reached in "Today" and how this today would govern our
tomorrow called destiny. Now, we when deeply contemplate then
we realize that these destinites are nothing but small
"termination" if not absolute target to meet. There are
several destinites in our life, which go towards the "Destiny"
of life. Then there is a destiny beyond our lives. To realize
this destiny, we end up living most part of our life and when
we look back its just "enigma" in intangible form with some
tangible materialistic results. Then the question comes does
our "mortal Krida" is just a waste and not really sanguine
with "Eternal Lila". Perhaps not because super eternal logic
of "Celestial Lila" is above our conceptions and our "Krida"
or Karma field is just the result of that "Cosmic" optional
wish. Yet it gives us time and avenue to correct our Karma for
the eternal inter-play of lila.
