Sign of an enlightened being

Quotations there have been, in superabundance. But what original commentary can you supply, from the uniqueness of your particular life? What holy text have you absorbed and made your own?

In what ways have these timeless truths renovated your nature?

Are you content to be a hollow victrola, mechanically repeating the words of other men?

Most people, Don’t realize that they have achieved nothing and are quickly going down the path of ego

A few books here and there. A few so called miracles and their spiritual life is over

There are many very deep secrets in mediation. Find them out. You can re write all the scriptures even if they are destroyed. That is what Shankaracharya did in the 9th century. He closed his eyes and rewrote all the ancient scriptures that were lost !

So then Veda Vyas Challenged Him. Now Veda Vyas is the person who wrote most of the books thousands of years ago. His father Parashar was also an enlightened being. Veda Vyas son Shukdev Was also enlightened. This was about 5000 years ago

So at the age of 15 Shankaracharya was challenged by Vyas Bhagwan – ( he is one of the immortals ) and asked to interpret the deeper meanings of the Shlokas. And this debate went on and on for weeks -day and night. Without halting

Finally Shankaracharya realized that the person who challenged him is none other than Ved Vyas ! Vyas Bhagwan then have Shankaracharya another 16 years to live

So the point of the story is

  • All shastras have deep meaning
  • With deep mediation the meaning is revealed
  • Timeless – great saints are timeless. The Vedas and shastras are timeless
