5Divine message to readers
How the powerful jeevathma (soul) deteriorated

Why such inferior state was resulted ?

How the pure 'Amsa' of the Lord lowered to hapless State and born in this world with animal traits ? Why the all powerful part of the Lord is beset with innumerable sorrows and leading a life filled with fear and uncertainties ?

All the beings when pure and transparent got higher powers. Several such pure jeevas owing to contact with Prakrithi (nature or outer world) and conseuqent desire for earthly pleasures and enjoyments debilitated themselves.


Manayeva manushyanam Karanam Boandha Mokshayo

One's mind is the reason for one's bondage and liberation as well



Mind has two aspects. The higher and the lower. The higher leads the life towards eternal blissful living in the Divine realms and the lower towards limitations and bondage with 'Prakrithi'. Normally the ordinary Jeeva's mind is filled with many outer pursuits and pleasures. It is not a tranquil mind undisturbed by outer impressions, whereas a seer who is a pure spirit has only one desire - attainment of the Divine.

Even in the case of pure spirit living in higher plane of the Lord, when it slightens and despises Great souls (Mahatmas) spontaneously loses its higher state and descend to lower planes of birth and death.

Jaya & Vijaya

Jaya and Vijaya were the Door keepers of Lord Vishnu in the Divine Abode - VAIKUNTHA. They were Higher bengs and endowed with four arms. These arms represent their power to live simultaneously in four states - Jagrath (wake fulness), Swapna (Dream) Sushipthi (Deep sleep) and Turiya (a liberated high state). Here is a story (from Srimabhagawatha) where they committed a blunder by causing insult to Great souls.

One day Sanaka, Sanandana and five other sages with an intention to have the 'darsan' of Lord Mahavishnu crossed six doors of Vaikuntha and reached the seventh and the ultimate. At this door Jaya & Vijaya were the door keepers. Like Mahavishnu they too had four arms. Wielding the weapons they stood at the Door on either side. The sages like at previous six doors were about to cross the ultimate door also. But Jaya and Vijaya said "Oh! sages Don't go inside" and they obstructed the sages. Sanaka and Sanandana were like children. They freely move from one Divine plane to another and they never faced any obstruction to behold the Divine. Form of the Lord. The sages who were the embodiment of Divine wisdom felt insulted by facing this act of Jaya and Vijaya which was unbecoming to the Door keeper of the Lord. They angrily said "Door Keepers ! Don't you know that we should not be obstructed while meeting the Lord". Jaya and Vijaya were unrelented. Then they said with firm voice" only those sacred beings who are pure and pious reach this Abode to serve the Lord. All residents of this 'Dham' naturally possess the Divine quality Samadarsan (Divine vision that develops equal treatment to all). But your behaviour is otherwise. Your action is improper and is not in conformity with the status of this Divine Abode. Oh! Jaya and Vijaya, you must receive suitable punishment." And the sages went on to curse the Lord's servants.
