Arise, awake, Seek out The Great Ones to know Truth ineffable As dangerous as the Razor’s edge So is the path difficult to cross I walk on the Razor’s edge alone The path is narrow, the way Unknown Go and seek out the Seers Whose body is full of Bliss Who enjoys Immortality Whose body knows the warmth The subtle warmth of the Serpent Power As it rises from the Base Chakra To the Crown Chakra !
The cows symbolise the Upanishads They were all milked by the Lord The milk thus obtained is Geetha, The Great Song of Eternity The Upanishad sung by the Lord The Science of the Absolute The Scripture of the Yogis The Lamp lit by the Lord At the altar of humanity To save humanity from Evil To take man to immortality To Eternity & Peace Heavenly ! A scripture allegorical Symbolic of the inner war Happening in the human bosom Between the conflicting Good and Evil Duryodhana is Lust Dussasana is Anger Intellect is Arjuna The Self is Krishna ! Know then the Self is the Charioteer The chariot is the human body The horses five are the organs five And mind the reigns !
We are the place where The great battle is fought The great struggle for supremacy Between Light and Darkness Between Prosperity and Adversity Between the great forces of Love And the great forces of Lust Betwixt Love of Power & the Power of Love Let the Power of Love win ! Over the lust and love of Power Liberate us, O All Compassionate ! In this great battle, depicted by the poets As Epic Poetry, Iliad and Odyssey, Ramayana and Mahabharata The Self, His great transparent mirror Directs and controls the show throughout This cosmic play, this mighty show, Is willed by the Self in its totality And perpetually entertained! He resides as the Self in the chariot Of the human body, directing The five organs of sense, instructing The intellect discriminative, to wage war Against the enemies formidable Lust, greed, anger, jealousy Sloth, covetousness, gluttony With Love ineffable
He makes us victorious With the qualities positive, aligned to Love ! Indian Mythology is 400,000 verses Can you believe a man wrote that ? Vyasa wrote treatises eighteen The adumbration of all truths philosophic Condensed in story form Is this mighty Indian Mythology ! The major treatise mythological Is Bhagavata, of 18000 verses Was condensed into verses 1008 By the genius of Melpathur Out of the eighth mythological treatise, The Markandeya arose The great Devi Mahatmyam Extolling the Power Divine The Prakriti of the Purusha !
The Power Divine which is immanent As Love in all created beings ! The Power Divine which is the Universe The Power Divine which is Life, Mind, Matter The Power Divine which is all in all ! Out of the mighty epic Ramayana Arose the Aditya Hridayam Extolling the Solar Consciousness The Inner Sun of all, the Absoute Self ! Solar Consciousness is everywhere Is the synonym of Consciousness Cosmic Is the synonym of Witness Consciousness Or the I AM Consciousness transcendent ! Lakhs of verses adorn Siddhanta, Lakhs of verses adorn Hora Lakhs of verses adorn Samhita So is the case of Sruti and Smriti Philosophy Indian is crores of slokas !
