THE CHALLENGE : PART II - Swami Chinmayananda

13/02/2019.

"In a series of three talks Swami Chinmayananda addressed the students of Somayya College, Bombay, on the techniques of success. These talks were originally published in Tapovan Prasad in the year 1968."

Apart from technical perfection, we must have character, a cheerful outlook on life and a readiness to face all problems and challenges which confront us. Then alone can you become a personality which will attract others towards you. If my personality emanates noble qualities, a readiness to make sacrifices, to offer love, then others will be drawn to me.

All of us wish to become better than what we are. How can we improve our behavior and our daily conduct in life?

Even though we want to improve, we are unable to do so. We lose our temper, sometimes even with our mother and father. It is not that one is disloyal to them. Perhaps the situation at home is like that. No one seems to understand me. I am unhappy. A hundred things disturb me. Emotions gurgle out. I m…

Lord Krishna plays the flute, producing enchanting music. The flute, by itself, cannot create music. It is an inert, insentient piece of matter. But when the Lord plays it, divine music emanates from it and enchants everyone. Similarly, the human body is, by itself, inert and insentient. It contains the sense organs and the mind-intellect equipment (the holes in the flute) through which the Consciousness expresses Itself. Radha’s Love for Krishna.

It is said that, long ago, Krishna left His dwelling place in the highest heaven. He came to earth, bringing with Him the things and inhabitants of that idyllic paradise of peace: cow, peacocks, nightingales, and the cowherds and milkmaids (gopis) who loved Him.

Krishna the beloved boy of Brindavan, is pictured amid the dancing gopis. Much criticism has been leveled against Krishna’s association with these milkmaids. Little do the critics realize that the Lord is ever an un¬concerned and unaffected witness of the milkmaids’ da…

The infinite, all-pervading Truth, donning the finite form of a human being, gives the impression that the Truth is fettered and limited. This idea of the illimitable Truth seeming to be limited is well brought out by the fact that Krishna is said to have been born in prison. His tyrant uncle, Kamsa, imprisoned Krishna’s father, usurped the throne of Mathura, and reigned along with his own cruel minister, Chanura. As long as these two men were in charge of Mathura, there was confusion and chaos everywhere. Krishna destroyed the tyrants and restored peace and order in the land. Similarly, our bosom is usurped by two evil forces, namely, the ego and egocentric desires, which cause agitations, worries, and anxieties within. When these two forces are conquered by one’s higher nature, the original glory and splendor of the pure Self is restored,

Krishna, as the Consciousness, or Atman, resides in the core of one’s personality. It remains confined, as it were, within the five…

“The love of Radha and Krishna is symbolic of the eternal love affair between the devoted mortal and the Divine Radha’s yearning for union with her beloved Krishna is the soul’s longing for spiritual awakening.”

Every aspect of Krishna and His deeds is pregnant with deep mystical symbolism indicating the highest Truth. One must have the subtle-sensitivity of a poet, the ruthless intellect of a scientist, and the soft heart of the beloved in order to enter into the enchanted realm of mysticism. Art can be fully appreciated only by hearts that have art in them.

In Sanskrit, the world Krishna means “dark”, indicat¬ing the Supreme Consciousness. Pure Consciousness is said to be “dark”, not as opposed to “light,” but in the sense that it is unseen by or unknown to one as long as one remains footed in earthly experiences, ex¬periences limited to the realms of perceptions, emotions, and thoughts gained through the physical body, and the intellect.

Consciousness is the pure Sel…

Radha the Intriguing Mystery : 5. Swami Krishnananda

(Spoken on Radha Ashtami on September 14, 1983)
5.

Thus, the holy observance of Sri Radha Ashtami is a reminder to the spirit of man—not even to his psyche—that there is something in him which is not male or female, and not human. For all practical purposes, we cannot think except as human beings. No man can think that he is a woman, and no woman can believe that she is a man. We can imagine how limited our thoughts are. Whatever be their acuteness and genius of penetrative thinking, men can never believe that they are women; similar is the case with women. There is this terrible limitation set upon our thinking itself and, much worse, is that which compels us to feel that we are human beings. But Sri Krishna did not behave like a man or a woman, nor did he behave like a human being. These elements of a non-human or ultra-human behaviour are described in certain sections of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana, and we are always intrigued when we hear or read about these myster…
