Delhi,India, October 03, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Yogic path is such that the imprints are eradicated one by one with the new light of wisdom called rtambhara prajna.
Finally, even this wisdom is relinquished. The weapon is first used to destroy and after the destruction the weapon too is relinquished. Similarly, the ultimate samskara, that is rtambhara prajna, is used as a weapon to destroy the last residue of the impressions,finally the impression of rtambhara prajna is also left behind.
Rtambhara is a very beautiful, poetic word. The Word indicates its profound weight and depth. It Cannot be translated in a single word. Rtambhara means a truth-bearing state. It is a matured state of the unalloyed wisdom of the intellect of the head and intelligence of the inner mind. Prajna means intelligent awareness. Rtambhara prajna is the highest peak of intelligence. High on the icy peak of the Everest of wisdom, beyond this there remains nothing except the light of the soul. That is why I say, Yogah samskaravrtti nirodhah ||
All these definitions of yoga, whether the union between jivatman and paramatman, the establishment of equanimity, the adoption of skilful action, the discipline and restraint of mental modifications, the eradication of sorrow and imprints of desires, make us aware of the fact that we want to be free from afflictions. We want to seek that which we lack. Here, man surely distinguishes himself from God. The Difference between God and man makes man to realise the importance of yoga. Yoga links God and man, binding man to God. I want to remind you again that the word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root, 'yujir', which means 'to bind' or 'to join' or 'to direct the attention'.
Whether one believes in God or not, the face remains that man wants to be free from sorrows. He wants to find real and lasting happiness. He wants peace. He wants satisfaction. He wants to know about everything that he possibly can know about Basically he is inquisitive; he is a seeker of knowledge. Even an illiterate person does not want to remain ignorant. There is a thirst for knowledge in him also. He wants to know and therefore, he spooks for knowledge.Compared to an educated person an illiterate person may seem to be uneducated, but there is still this tendency to seek knowledge. The instinct towards knowledge tempts a person to know more and more. Man knows that he is incomplete; therefore, his efforts are to know more. The more he knows, the more he realises how little he knows.
