OM TAT SAT

OM TAT SAT


During the year 2000, in the winter month of February, I visited a temple close to my home. Before entering the temple, my eyes get fixed on the big stone engravings on the topmost portion of the entrance gate of the temple and three words were written there, OM TAT SAT. I started wondering, what does it mean? Several years later, holy book Bhagavad-Gita solves the puzzle of "OM TAT SAT". These three words indicate supreme absolute truth since the beginning of creation. The Brahmanas used these symbolic representations while chanting hymns of Vedas and during sacrifices for the appeasement of the Supreme God.
OM
This is the sacred sound and spiritual symbol in Hinduism. Even God Shri Krisna declare in Bhagavad-Gita that he is sacred syllable called OM which is used by transcendentalist before commencement of penance, sacrifice, charity. It is a symbol of consciousness or soul. It is also used in Buddhism and Jainism. Most of the powerful mantras to evoke God are prec…

Detachment is the tool or method through which one can get out of this web of material entanglement.

HOW TO ATTAIN THE SUPREME

HOW TO ATTAIN THE SUPREME
Brahman is non-destructive and exist eternally without change. Karma creates the material bodies of living entities. The material nature is consistently undergoing changes. Supreme God Shri Krishna lives in the heart of living beings and is the Lord of all sacrifices and universal form of the lord contains all the Demigods. 
There is no doubt that those whosoever leave his/her body remembering God at the last moment will definitely attain God. Those who attain God never return to this miserable and dangerous material world because they have achieved higher perfections. 
If a person remembers somebody other than God then he will definitely get body similar to that person to whom he or she was remembering while leaving his body. If you removed your dog at the time of leaving your body then you will be dog in next life and if you remember your wife at the time of leaving your body then you will be a woman in your next body.

Three modes of material nature

THREE MODES OF MATERIAL NATURE

Every human being is controlled by three modes of nature which keeps a person in the mode of knowledge & enlightenment,passion,ignorance and madness respectively. 

Human beings present state is determined by the modes of material nature which is dominant at the particular moment and these modes of material nature keep competing with each other to take control of a person's consciousness.  Sometimes Modes of goodness is prominent and Sometimes Mode of passion or mode of ignorance are prominent.

Nature, enjoyer & consciousness

NATURE, ENJOYER (SUPER SOUL) AND CONSCIOUSNESS.

This body is called the field and the one who knows this body is called knower.

God is the knower of this body. We are also the knower of our body but God is the knower of all the bodies. The action of knowing the body and knower of this body is called knowledge. 
God is enjoyer. We are created and enjoyed. We are cooperator in the enjoyment of God. We enjoy by providing cooperation to God. We are the eternal servant of God.
Consciousness is "I am". "I am spirit", "I am Brahman". When we think that we are enjoyer and proprietor then we, souls are, conditioned with material impurities. Here comes the false ego when we identified our body with "I am". "I am" is ego. We can not give up ego because ego is identity but we can give up false ego.
Nature is the inferior energy of God as it has no consciousness but it is eternal.

Devotional Service

Devotional  Service
There are two types of persons. One who worship impersonal Brahaman and others who are involves in devotional service of God Shri Krishna. 
Out of these two worshipers, who involves in devotional service of God Krishna are better than the other because for the living entities i.e., souls inside bodies, the progress on the path of worship of impersonal Brahman is very tough.

Impersonal Brahman is the unmanifested, beyond the perception of senses, not movable, stable, not subject to change and unborn. It is the impersonal idea of supreme truth. These are meditators who control their senses and focus their concentration on impersonal brahman. They treat all living beings equally and remained busy in the welfare of others and finally achieve God Shri Krishna but this path is very difficult and tedious. Similarly, Gyan yoga is also a difficult path to reach God.
