Jaimini Sutra Bhashya Of Sri Vallabhacharya

Jaimini Sutra Bhashya is a commentary on Mimamsa Sutras of Jaimini of Sri Vallabhacharya. Sri Vallabhacharya is the founder of Pushtimarg and the corresponding school of philosophy known as Shuddhadvaita. This commentary is now lost, and the very fact of its composition is very much in dispute among scholars within Pushtimarg. No copies of such a manuscript exist in Pushtimarg libraries, and no commentaries, even fragmentary, exist on it by either Vitthalnath or Purushottama (1668 – 1725 CE), seventh in descent from Vallabhacharya, the best known and most highly regarded commentator in the sect, who wrote commentaries on all of Vallabhacharya’s work. On the other hand, it is not impossible that a major work, which was then known and about which rumor has persisted for centuries, was lost during the chaotic first two decades after Vallabhacharya’s death in 1531 CE. There was a good deal of tension and family dispute until the accession of Vitthalnath in 1550 CE., following the death

Durva Grass And Kurma Avatar Of Bhagavan Vishnu

There are some popular stories associated with Durva Grass and Bhagwan Vishnu in Hinduism. One such story connects the origin of the Durga grass with the Kurma Avatar of Vishnu Bhagavan. During the famous incident of the churning of ocean or samudra manthan in the Puranas, Mountain Manthara was used as the churning rod and it was supported at the base by the Kurma Avatar (tortoise incarnation) of Bhagavan Vishnu. The churning resulted in the rubbing off of a few hairs from Kurma avatar. The rubbed hairs were cast ashore by the waves and on land they took the form of Durva grass. It also believed that Durva grass appeared when amrut or elixir of life fell from the pot of Mohini avatar of Vishnu on earth. Yet another legend has it that Durva grass appeared when the perspiration of Bhagavan Vishnu fell on earth. Durva grass, known as Bermuda grass in English, doob or Harialil in Hindi, and arugam pullu in Tamil, is held highly auspicious by Hindus. It is offered without inner shoot

Tatvarthdip Nibandh Of Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya

Tatvarthdip Nibandh, also written as Tattvartha Deepa Nibandha, is an independent treatise in three sections, in mixed prose and verse by Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya. Sri Vallabhacharya is the founder of Pushtimarg and the corresponding school of philosophy known as Shuddhadvaita. The three sections of Tatvarthdip Nibandh are called Shastrarth, Sarva Nirnaya and Bhagavatartha. In the first two sections Vallabhacharya argues, through massive use of citation, for a unified textuality of Krishna bhakti,Upanishads and Purva Mimamsa. He defines and classifies his terms, systematizes his principles, describes the nature of incarnation, of eligibility for higher knowledge, and much more. The Shastrarth Prakarana section gives Vallabhacharya’s views on much of the material contained in the Bhagavad Gita. Though it is not a commentary on the Bhagavad Gita, very early in the text Vallabhacharya states that the Bhagavad Gita embodies the words and teachings of Sri Krishna; therefore it is

Vakyartha Smriti In Hindu Religion

In Hindu religion, Vakyartha Smriti literally means the understanding and smriti (recollection) of  the artha (meaning) of vakya (a sentence). Vakyartha smriti is interpreted differently by different schools of philosophy. Some take it as just the putting together of the meaning associated with the subject part (uddeshya) and the predicate part (vidheya) of a sentence. According to grammarians, vakyartha is the comprehensive sense conveyed by putting together grammatically all the words in the sentence. Here, by smriti is meant the flash which strikes the mind when the sentence has been fully uttered. Mimamsa philosophy takes it as the complexity o the meanings conveyed by all the words. According to it, the shakti (power) represented by the words makes the sentences properly understood. Nyaya philosophy goes a step further and relates the word Vakyartha smriti to the recollection of the intended sense through the theory of ‘logical comparison’ (anumana) and the identification of

Valakhilya Hymns In Rig Veda

Valakhilya or Balakhilya are a group of eleven suktas or hymns occurring in the eight mandala of Rig Veda. Valakhilya suktas contain eighty verses or riks. In Balakhilya,the sukta containing the largest number of riks finds, first place, and suktas with lesser number of riks follow. The only exception is the eleventh sukta, which has seven mantras. It should have been placed earlier. In arranging these suktas, the order of deities, too, seems to have been taken into consideration. Since there is no sukta in praise of Agni, the suktas in praise of Indra are placed first, then those addressed to other deities. Thus, suktas one to six belong to the Indra group; suktas seven and eight are called Danastuti, and are without reference to any deity; deity of the ninth hymn is Ashwin, and that of the tenth is Vishwadeva. Deities of the ninth and tenth suktas have not been mentioned by the author of Brihad Devata. This fact suggests that these hymns were not a part of Valakhilya at that time

Sumantra In Ramayana – Minister Of King Dasaratha Of Ayodhya

Sumantra in Ramayana is one of the eight ministers of King Dasaratha of Ayodhya. Sumantra was very close to Dasaratha, who placed full confidence in him. Valmiki describes him as the ‘best of ministers’ as well as ‘wise in counsel’. It was on his advice that Dasaratha decided to bring the Sage Rishyasringa, son of Vibhandak, to perform the Asvamedha Yajna. In the narrative by Valmiki, when Kaikeyi thwarts the plans of king Dasaratha to make Rama the crown prince, it is Sumantra who goes out to fetch Rama into the king’s presence. Rama, who knew nothing of Kaikeyi’s designs, exclaims – “What a happy augury that the king, in consultation with his beloved consort, has sent as a messenger Sumantra, who is ever intent on furthering my wishes.” (Valmiki Ramayana, Ayodhya Kanda, Canto XV). Sumantra swoons as Rama affirms his resolve to go to the forest despite his father’s pleadings. His anger swelling up, Sumantra rails at Kaikeyi, alternately pleading and berating. He tells her – you wi

Subodhini of Vallabhacharya is a commentary on the first, second, third, tenth and part of the eleventh cantos of Srimad Bhagavata Purana.Vallabhacharya is the founder of Pushtimarg and the corresponding school of philosophy known as Shuddhadvaita. Subodhini is the most esoteric and popular of Vallabhacharya’s long works and is also, the most prameya oriented, indicating God Himself, ‘that which is to be measured or proved.’ Subodhini examines Bhagavata according to levels of interpretation closer or more precise than those employed in Bhagavatarthaprakarana – sentence (vakya), word (pada) and syllable (akshara).

The Right Attitude Towards The World

The world consists of pairs of opposites, called dvandvas: pleasure and pain, happiness and misery, heat and cold, praise and blame, gain and loss, victory and defeat, and so on. Human nature is to get attached to the pleasant and have aversion to the painful. But it is an unpleasant and uncomfortable fact that if we get attached to one the other comes uninvited; it is a package deal. A bhakta, however, has a clear conception of the God-soul-universe triad and is able to see the world in perspective. Not all problems in the world have solutions; nor do they have rational explanations. From the non-dual perspective, the world is but a dream that will break on the dawn of Self-knowledge. Considering that it is sublated on Self-realization, it is not eternal. It is also a source of misery, since worldly pleasure is of the rajasic variety, which is like nectar in the beginning (due to the contact of the sense organs with their objects), but poison at the end, when one stands sapped of al
