Prasanthi Nilayam Pin 515134 India, B aba has clarified that the word vidya used for this vahini stream means that which ya illumines vidh.
It is this sense that is highlighted in expressions like Atma vidya Brahma vidya and even the name Vidya. giri giri means hill or mountain given to the campus of the Institute of Higher Learning at Prasanthi Nilayam. Baba makes us aware of the comparatively less beneficial lower learning which deals with theories in. ferences concepts conjectures and constructions The higher learning hastens and expands the universal urge. to know and become truth goodness and beauty sathyam sivam sundaram Baba has come as Man among. men on a self imposed mission to correct the wrongs inflicted on mankind through the fanatically blind pursuit. of lower learning The human race has to voyage on an even keel it is leaning too alarmingly toward the briny. grave the lower learning is lowering it into the bottomless pit Only spiritual knowledge that which illumines. vidya is the remedy, From His childhood days Baba has stood forth as an educator a guru as the villagers loved to address Him. Without hesitation He warned elders at Puttaparthi teachers in the schools and headmen of castes against cru. elty to animals exploitation of labour usury gambling pedantry and illiteracy hypocrisy and pomp Through. quips and jests parody and satire songs and plays the young teenaged teacher ridiculed and reformed society. which honoured or tolerated such evils Through devotional songs bhajans sung in chorus by groups of men. and women He reminded them of the universal human values of truth morality peace love and nonviolence as. early as 1943 when he was barely seventeen These were the basic acquisitions that the Higher Learning vidya. can confer on votaries,As Lord Krishna He said to Arjuna. Among all the kinds of knowledge I am the Atmic knowledge. Adhyaathma Vidhyaa Vidhyaanaam, The world can be saved from suicide only through this Atmic knowledge The search for truth and totality. for unity and purity is the means the awareness of the One is the consummation of the process This message is. the sum and substance of every discourse of His during the last five decades. This precious book provides us the chance to peruse nineteen essays that He wrote in answer to appeals for. the elucidation of the principles that must guide us while rehabilitating education as an effective instrument for. establishing peace and freedom in us and on Earth,Editor Sanathana Sarathi. Prasanthi Nilayam,14 January l984,Chapter 1 Higher Learning.
T hat which has no origin knows no beginning It was before everything or anything was There was nothing. prior to It For that very reason It has no end It expands as far as It wills progresses as diverse as It feels. and through Its fullness fills the universe Knowledge of this supreme principle is known as that which illu. mines vidya spiritual knowledge wisdom awareness, Many seers with manifold experiences of this unique awareness have visualised in their illumined hearts the. sovereign secret underlying the captivating beauty of the cosmos Compassion toward humanity has prompted. them to communicate the vision through human language to arouse the innate thirst in the soul for immersion in. that bliss Spiritual learning vidya causes this urge in the hearts of the seers. Vedic literature, Sound is the very core of the Veda Sound is associated with harmony and melody so the Veda has to be. heard and ecstasy derived therefrom It is not to be analysed commented upon and judged This is why the Veda. is called that which is heard sruthi Only through listening to its recital can the awareness of the Atma and of. the bliss it confers be earned The bliss thus acquired manifests in words and deeds that confer bliss on all around. The term Vedanta is generally used by many to indicate a school of philosophical thought But Vedanta is. only a special section of Vedic literature All the Upanishadic texts form part of Vedanta Vedanta is the consum. mation of Vedic thought The Vedas themselves are invaluable guides toward the Highest. The hymns riks of the Rig veda are ecstatic effusions from the spirit of humanity extolling the delight. derived while contemplating the orderliness and beauty of nature outside them The Sama veda is the precious. verbal treasure that enables humanity to praise the Creator and His creation in song The mystery of this world and. of the worlds beyond is elaborated in the texts that are comprehensively called Atharvana veda The formulae for. rites and ceremonials beneficial or merit yielding or sacrificial have been collated as the Yajur veda. The Vedic literature grouped into these four collections each under a different name has four more. branches the Mantras the Brahmanas the Aranyakas and the Upanishads The mantra texts mantra sastra are. also called collections samhithas and all sacred formulae are grouped together in them. The texts that describe the means and methods of utilising them and benefiting by their proper recital are. known as Brahmanas The word Brahma has many meanings In the expression Brahmanas it means mantra. The Brahmanas deal mostly with ceremonials and kindred external activities The Aranyakas deal with the inner. significances and internal disciplines like withdrawal of senses and elimination of attachments The Upanishads. attempt by philosophical analysis to harmonise the two paths They form the final phase of Vedic studies and are. called Vedanta They can even be considered to be the essence of Vedic teachings They are the cream of the entire. Vedic scriptures When the Vedas are assimilated by scholarship the Upanishads emerge as butter does when milk. is churned, All forms of Vedic literature mentioned thus far form the most ancient body of knowledge Vidya Upanishad. the word is formed by the root shad getting the two syllables upa and ni as prefixes Shad means sitting but it. has also another meaning destroying Ni means steady disciplined Upa means near The pupil has to sit near the. guru or preceptor paying steady attention to what is being communicated Only then can the pupil learn the fund. of knowledge and the skill of discrimination, The Upanishads the Brahma Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita these are the basic roots of Indian philosophi. cal thought Together they are known as the Authentic Triad Prasthana Thraya. The material and non material worlds, This material objective world becomes visible to our eyes pleases our senses fascinates our minds and.
informs our brain But in and through this very world there is one reachable non material subjective world. When the non material world is known both worlds reveal themselves as partial expressions of the same indivis. ible consciousness chaithanya The two supplement each other into the one Fullness purnam From the Full. Parabrahma the individual jiva that is its complement arises When the individual sheds the material corpus. in which it is encased the eternal Universal Consciousness is again the one Fullness the Parabrahma principle. That is full this is full from the Full arose the Full when the Full is taken from the. Full only the Full remains, Purnam adah purnam idam puurnaath purnam udachyathe purnasya purnam aadaaya. purnam eva avasishyathe,Spiritual education, The education process vidya teaches that the cosmos is a manifestation of the Lord s sport and nothing else. The Upanishads declare this truth thus,This world is the residence of the Lord. Isaavaasyam idam jagath, Therefore no one can entertain a sense of personal possession or even a trace of egotism Renounce the feeling.
