ചാക്ഷുഷീ വിദ്യ

ചാക്ഷുഷി വിദ്യ

പാണ്ഡവൻമാർ അതിഘോരമായ വനത്തിലൂടെ നടന്ന് ഗംഗാതീരത്ത് എത്തപ്പെട്ടു. പാതിരാത്രിയായി. അംഗാരപർണ്ണൻ എന്നും ചിത്രരഥൻ എന്നും പേരുള്ള ഒരു ഗന്ധർവ്വൻ കുറെ അപ്സരസ്സുകളുമായി ഗംഗാനദിയിൽ ക്രീഡ നടത്തുന്ന സമയത്തായിരുന്നു പാണ്ഡവരുടെ വരവ്.

ചിത്രരഥനും പാണ്ഡവരുമായി വാക്കേറ്റവും പിന്നെ അർജ്ജുനനുമായി ദ്വന്ദയുദ്ധവുമുണ്ടായി. ഗന്ധർവ്വൻ പരാജയപ്പെട്ടു ഗന്ധർവ്വന്റെ ബന്ധുക്കൾ കരഞ്ഞപേക്ഷിച്ചതിനാൽ അർജ്ജുനൻ ചിത്രരഥനെ വധിച്ചില്ല. സന്തോഷവും നന്ദിയും കൊണ്ട് ഗന്ധർവ്വൻ പല കഥകളും പാണ്ഡവർക്ക് പറഞ്ഞു കൊടുത്തു.

ചാക്ഷുഷീവിദ്യ, ദിവ്യാശ്വങ്ങൾ എന്നിവയും പാണ്ഡവർക്ക് നല്കി. ത്രിലോകങ്ങളിലുമുള്ള ഏതൊരു വസ്തുവിനെയും സൂക്ഷ്മമായി ദർശിക്കുന്നതിനുള്ള വിദ്യയാണ് ചാക്ഷുഷീവിദ്യ, മനു, സോമനേയും സോമൻ, വിശ്വാവസുവിനേയും വിശ്വാവസു, ചിത്രരഥൻ അഥവാ അംഗാരപർണ്ണൻ എന്ന ഗന്ധർവ്വനേയും അംഗാരപർണ്ണൻ, അർജ്ജുനനെയും പഠിപ്പിച്ചു.

മനസ്സിനെ ഏകാഗ്രമാക്കി ഒരു വസ്തുവിനെക്കുറിച്ച് ചിന്തിക്കൂ… പല പല മഹാമുനികളും മഹർഷി ശ്രേഷ്ഠന്മാരും മനസ്സിനെ ഏകാഗ്രമാക്കി ചാക്ഷുഷീവിദ്യ സ്വന്തമാക്കിയവർ ആണ്. അങ്ങനെ ലഭിക്കുന്ന ഈ ചാക്ഷുഷീവിദ്യയെ ചിലർ ‘ദിവ്യശക്തി’ എന്ന് പറയുന്നു
ദേവതകളും ഗന്ധർവ്വന്മാരും പകർന്നുനല്കിയ ഈ വിദ്യയെ നിത്യവുമുള്ള ഏകാഗ്രചിന്തയോടെ പഠിച്ചെടുത്ത പല ആത്മീയഗുരുക്കളും നമുക്ക് ഒരു പാഠമാണ്.

“പഠിക്കാൻ നമുക്ക് മനസ്സുണ്ടെങ്കിൽ പിന്നൊന്നിനും തടസ്സമുണ്ടാകില്ല.”

അർജ്ജുന്റെ ചിട്ടയായ ബ്രഹ്മചര്യം കൊണ്ട് മാത്രമാണ് ചിത്രരഥനെ ജയിക്കാൻ കഴിഞ്ഞത് എന്ന സത്യവും ഗന്ധർവ്വൻ പാണ്ഡവരോട് പറഞ്ഞു.

“ചിട്ടയായ ജീവിതശൈലി വിജയത്തിലെത്തിക്കും.”

Meditation Techniques

FIFTEEN PORTALS TO THE SUPREME *Meditation Techniques* *from Aparokṣānubhūti*

4. Maunam

Silence is golden and a silent mind is meditative, but can silence itself become meditation?

यस्माद्वाचो निवर्तन्ते अप्राप्य मनसा सह।
मौनं योगिभिर्गम्यं तद्भवेत्सर्वदा बुधः॥॥ १०७ ॥

वाचो यस्मान्निवर्तन्ते तद् वक्तुं केन शक्यते।
प्रो यदि वक्तव्यः सोऽपि शब्द विवर्जितः॥
॥ १०८ ॥

इति वा तद्भवेन्मौनं सतां सहज संज्ञितम्।
गिरा मौनं तु बालानां प्रयुक्तं ब्रह्मवादिभिः॥
॥ १०९ ॥

107-109. The wise should always be one with that Silence wherefrom words, together with the mind, turn back, unable to reach it, but which is attainable by the Yogins. Who can describe That (i.e, Truth) whence words turn away? (So beyond a point silence is inevitable while describing the Truth). Or if the phenomenal world were to be described even that is beyond words. This, to give an alternate definition, may also be termed Silence, known among the sages as our Natural State. The observance of silence by restraining speech, on the other hand, is ordained by the teachers of Truth for the ignorant.

There are four levels of speech (vāṇī):

1. Parā Vāņī – Supreme Speech: It is the unmanifest source from which all sounds and words
emerge.

2. Pasyanti Vani – Seen Speech: When an idea takes shape, the words vaguely gather, giving a more concrete form to the idea. We begin to ‘see’ the idea, hence pasyanti.

3. Madhyamā Vani — Middle Speech: Just before we mutually speak, the words have crystallised and are clear and in syntax.

4. Vaikhari Väni — Articulate Speech: Finally, the words are enunciated with the help of the vocal chords.Not uttering the words, i.e. not expressing the vaikhari vāni is called 'verbal silence' (girā maunam). Speech is an important way of self-expression. But to keep silent is also important, as it is then that we listen, learn and grow. Bhartrhari says, "The creator made silence as a good cover to hide our foolishness (which would otherwise be exposed through words), to be used especially in a gathering of the wise."

svāyattam-ekānta-bitaṁ vidhātrā vinirmitam chāndanam ajñātāyāh, višesatah sarvavidām samāje vibūsanam mounam apanditānām.
(Niti satakam)Quarrels end when one becomes silent. One avoids the sin of lying, angry words or insults by keeping quiet. We conserve energy which gets dissipated in fruitless talk by observing silence (vrtha ālāpa -- sramaṁ maunataḥ). It is therefore said, "Silence is the best solution -- sabse badī cupa," and "One should attain everything by silence -- mounena sarvārthaṁ sādhayet.”

Bhagavath Geetha

Whatever the situation, don’t give in to stress: Lord Krishna said:

“Arjuna, everything comes and goes in life. Happiness and unhappiness are temporary experiences that rise from sense perception. Heat and cold, pleasure and pain will come and go. They never last forever. So, do not get attached to them.”

(Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2:14)

We are in a rat race of endless, self-defeating, and pointless pursuit.

So, these words of Lord Krishna have a lot of importance today

We have to get rid our self of excessive worry.

Excessive worry will result in many diseases especially HEART ATTACKS and STROKES.
