Sanatan Dharma | 3. Satya (Truth) | Sri Vinod Babaji Maharaj

  Satya means Truth. Truth has a deep meaning. That which is eternal; that which existed in the past, exists in the present and will exist in the future is called Truth. And, that which is not eternal but temporary is called False or Untruth. If one can discern what is Truth and establish oneself in Truth i.e., follow the Truth physically, mentally and verbally without wavering, then such a sadhak is called a Satyāshrayī (Satya=Truth, āshrayī= one who has taken shelter). Such a sadhak can progress in spirituality very quickly. “Adbhir gātrāni shuddhyanti manah satyena shuddhyati, Vidya-tapobhyām bhutātma buddhir gyānena shuddhyati.” (Manu Smriti 5.109) Meaning: The body is cleansed by water, the mind is cleansed by Truth, the Jivatma is purified by learning sacred texts and austerity, and the intellect is purified by True knowledge. But if one doesn’t have a clear distinction between the Truth and the False, then any amount of bhajan will not be enough to achieve any spirit

Bhajan |1. Mero mana lāgyo barasānë më | Sri Vinod Babaji Maharaj

A bhajan written and composed by Sri Vinod Bihari Das Babaji Maharaj: [This is a note about Phonetics used to describe the pronunciation of the Hindi words for your reference: ā   -   pronounced as ‘a’ in far æ   -   pronounced as ‘a’ in cat ë   -   pronounced as ‘e’ in bet ī   -   pronounced as ‘ee’ The video is given at the bottom of the article for further reference.] म ेरो मन लाग्यो बरसाने में ,   जहाँ बिराजे राधारानी। मन हट्यो दुनियादारी से ,   जहाँ मिले खारा पानी।   Mero mana lāgyo barasānë më,  jahā birājë Radharani. Mana hatyo duniyādāri së,  Jāhān milë khārā pāni. Meaning : My heart is attached to Barsana, where Srimati Radharani resides. My heart has forsaken attachments to worldly matters, where one finds only saline (undrinkable) water, i.e., disappointments. मुझे दुनिया से नहीं कोई काम ,  मैं तो रटू राधा राधा नाम, दर्शन करूँ सुबह शाम । मेरे मन में बसो श्याम दीवानी , जहाँ बिराजे राधारानी। Mujhe duniyā së nahi koi kām, Mæ toh rat

Sanatan Dharma | 2. Ahimsa (Non-violence) | Sri Vinod Babaji Maharaj

Ahimsa means non-violence. It is an indispensable part of Dharma. Where there is violence, animosity, jealousy or malice, Dharma cannot exist. Historically and contemporarily, we see different religions and different sects within the religions battling with each other to prove their superiority over the others. If the cosmos is created by one God, how can one harm or kill other creatures created by the same God? Even in religions based on Polytheism, how can harming and killing others be considered a part of spirituality at all?? In reality, these things are only maniacal behaviour of people who have no understanding of spirituality. In Sanatan Dharma, God does not say to kill those who do not worship Him. All creatures are made of the 24 elements (as already explained earlier in Jiva tattva) and the soul, which is a part and parcel of God. Therefore, for God, there is no difference between a worshiper and an atheist. He provides air, water, food through plants and trees, etc for
