Kariyani-10: Checking the Pulse; Austerities

Nirupan

Gunātitānand Swāmi says, “His form [Shri Hari’s] as it is through shravan, manan, nididhyās and sākshātkār should be known thoroughly and his firm refuge should be sought; through penance, one should please God.”

[Swāmini Vāto: 7/31]

Nirupan

One devotee asked a question, “Other avatārs have not enforced the practice of moral and spiritual codes and have still liberated souls. And today you enforce the observance of codes and liberate the souls. What is the reason for this?” Then Swami said, “Others have liberated, but they have not destroyed the causal body and granted final liberation. And if liberation had followed destruction of the causal body, then why do conflicts occur in Golok and Vaikunth? So, Rādhikāji quarrelled with Shridāmā1 in Golok and Jay-Vijay quarreled with the Sanak2 sages in Vaikunth. From this, it follows that the causal body must not have been destroyed there. Maharaj has come from Akshardham with his Sadhu and given codes of conduct to destroy the causal body. For this, the Sadhu teaches the upāsanā of God and through the codes enforces the observance of God’s commands. As a result of this, the causal body is destroyed.” Then after Vachanamrut Kariyani-12 was read with reference to this topic, Swami said, “In this Vachanamrut, Maharaj has stated his principle. That’s why he liberates by enforcing the observance of commands. That is the objective.”

1. Once, in Golok, Shri Krishna took Virja with him to the rās. This upset Radha so she went to scold him. When she arrived there, Krishna disappeared from there with Virja. Radha was jealous of Virja. Again she saw Krishna, Shridama and Virja talking. So she scolded Krishna. He listened quietly but Shridama could not bear to see her insult him like this. So he reprimanded her and cursed her, saying, “You’ll be born in the home of a carpenter.” Radha also cursed Shridama, “You’ll be born as a demon.” As a result he was born as the demon Shankhchud (Narad Puran 2/81; Brahmavaivart Puran 2/46).

2. Jay-Vijay were brothers and the doorkeepers of Vaikunth. Once, the Sanaks arrived. The two brothers stopped them from entering for darshan of Bhagwan Vishnu and believing them to be mere children insulted them. As a result, the Sanaks cursed them. So, the two brothers had to take three births as demons: Jay was born as Hiranyaksha, Ravan and Shishupal; Vijay was born as Hiranyakashipu, Kumbhkaran and Dantvakra.
