Karma – Activity In Vaisheshika Philosophy

Karma or activity has a special sense in Vaisheshika philosophy, meaning ‘motion’. In Vaisheshika Sutra, it is defined as that which inheres in one substance only, does not possess quality, and is an independent cause of conjunctions and disjunctions. There are five kinds of activity – throwing upwards, throwing downwards, contraction, expansion and locomotion (gamana). Activity appears in corporeal or finite substances only; it does not appear in time, space, ether, and spirit, or in quality and activity. There can be no activity of an all-pervading thing because a change in its position is logically impossible. The quality and activity are ruled out as the substrata of activity for maintaining consistency with the definitions of quality and activity. Quality and activity both inhere in substances. So it follows that activity can appear neither in quality nor in activity. Sometimes activities like throwing upwards, etc., may be the joint effect of gravity, effort and conjunction.

Vaisheshika Philosophy Main Doctrines

 The Vaisheshika philosophy is pluralistic realism. It believes that the external world exists independently of the mind. It is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophy, which admit the authority of Vedas. The third aphorism of Vaisheshika Sutra confirms this by asserting that Veda, being the word of God (tat), must be regarded as valid. However, there is no mention of God anywhere in Vaisheshika Sutra. To dispose of this sort of discrepancy, it is said that many things have been left unsaid in Vaisheshika Sutra. But it does not mean that those things would be denied by it. Later on, when the commentaries were written on Vaisheshika Sutra, and Nyaya and Vaisheshika traditions became allied, gradually all the unsaid but presumed ideas came into the light. It is generally admitted that the characteristic concern of the Vaisheshika philosophy is to enunciate an ontological doctrine of padartha (categories). A sound ontological analysis is required to take into account only th

Nyasavidya In Hindu Religion

Nyasavidya in Hindu religion is the performance of nyasa in religious rites. The term nyasa means ‘mental appropriation or assignment of the various parts of the body to different deities (which is generally performed at the beginning and end of all the religious rites)”. Mantras are employed for all sorts of purposes, whether mystical, magical or ritual. The performer holds his right hand successively in front of the mouth, eyes, ears, nostrils, top of the head, forearms, navel and back. The touching of parts of the body is accompanied by recitation of a mantra, a knowledge text, and the prayers that the gods who protect different parts of the body may each take up their special places. Puja, performed with dhyana, mantra, mudra and nyasa, transforms the person into a deity. A God only can worship a God. A purification of the elements (bhuta shuddhi) and a replacement of the limited self (atman) by that of the deity also takes place. An ‘antryaga’ (inner sacrifice) is performed, w
