Abhaya – Fearlessness – Spiritual Goal In Hinduism

Abhaya means fearlessness and it is a cardinal virtue extolled in Hindu texts. It is also the goal of all spiritual endeavors in Hinduism. In Hindu temple sculptures, gods and goddesses are represented as assuring fearlessness with one hand (abhaya hasta) and showering grace with the other (varada hasta). The modern day popular concepts of Ahimsa (non-violence) and satyagraha (non-cooperation) are based on the Hindu concept of Abhaya. The Bhagavad Gita (XVI – 1) puts fearlessness as the first among divine qualities (daivi sampat). Abhaya is said to be the same as enlightenment. Yajnavalkya tells his disciple king Janaka that he has attained fearlessness, thereby indicating his wisdom (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV – 2.4).  Taittiriya Upanishad (II. 7.1) says that Brahman is established on the basis of Srishti (creation), rasalabha (experience of happiness), pranana (survival), bhayaabhayahetu (order in the universe) and abhayapratistha (fearlessness).

Mind Quotes - Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa - Importance Of Mind Control

A few quotes on the playful nature of mind and the importance of mind control from Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. The darkness of the mind disappears when God is realized. In the Purana it is said that it was as if a hundred suns were shining when Rama entered the court. Why, then, weren’t the courtiers burnt up? It was because the brilliance of Rama was not like that of a material object. As the lotus blooms when the sun rises, so the lotus of the heart of the people assembled in the court burst into blossom. The human mind is like a package of mustard seeds. As it is very difficult to gather the seeds that have escaped out of a torn package and are scattered in all directions, so too when the human mind runs in diverse directions and is occupied with worldly things, it is not a very easy task to collect and concentrate it. The huge jar kept under water is completely filled and gets immersed on all sides. It does not gurgle anymore and remains completely silent. Similarly, t
