Greatness Of Food Charity In Hindu Religion – Story Of Karna

The greatness of food charity is explained in numerous ways in Hindu religion. Here is a story from Mahabharata involving Karna which reveals the supremacy of food charity over other charities. Towards the end of the Mahabharata war, though Karna was losing in the battle, he still remained invincible on account of the merits of his charity. Bhagavan Sri Krishna, in order to deplete this source of strength of punya or merit, assuming the guise of a Brahmin approached Karna for charity. Karna pleaded helplessness as he had nothing more with him to give except his life which he was ready to offer at the feet of the Brahmin. Bhagavan Sri Krishna in disguise said that he had no need for his life, but He asked him to donate all his Punya which alone travels with the soul after death and secures a place in Heaven. Karna acquiesced to this demand readily. But before performing the formal act of charity, Karna said that he was tired and thirsty and wanted some water to drink. When the Bra

Jivanmukta In Hinduism – Liberated While Living

As per Hinduism, a jivanmukta is one who does not see anything separate from himself. This one sentence epitomizes the essence of the nature of a person who is truly liberated in this very life: He may appear to be ignorant, but he is always immersed in the knowledge of the Self. He may be teaching others, but he never claims to be a teacher. If he acts like a mad man, it is because of his divine intoxication and the inability of words to express his true feelings. He may express joy or sorrow in reaction to worldly events, but that is only in recognition of the function of the senses that has nothing to do with the Self. His apparent excitement in the presence of the wonders of the world is an acknowledgment of the phenomenon of superimposition, because there is nothing other than the Self and everything is fully contained in it. The Atman is the wonder of wonders and we are It! Whether he is angry with or kind towards others, he means well for everyone and desires nothing but the

How Do We Realize The Eternal – Imperishable?

How do we realize the eternal – imperishable? – an excerpt from editorial of January 2021 issue of The Mountain Path magazine published by Ramana Maharshi Ashram. To do this does not come out of a mere whim. It requires a sankalpa. An intention; a firm resolve; a commitment. The stronger the sankalpa the quicker will the veils of self-deception dissolve. For all of us who are working towards liberation, every moment is an opportunity to correct our thoughts and behaviour. As thoughts arise that are not directly involved with the worldly activity necessary for our sustenance and well-being, we hold onto that sense of ‘I’ without a name or a form. That silent, still moment between two thoughts. We have a choice. When thoughts arise of remorse as to where and when we had acted inappropriately in the past and we would like to change it, we evoke the necessary strength to face our deficiencies and resolve to act differently in the future, thereby not succumbing to their persuasive allur
