Agocara In Hinduism – Entity Beyond The Range Of The Senses

Agocara is a non-object entity, which is beyond the range of the senses. It usually denotes the characteristic of Brahman, the Infinite, which is beyond the range of speech and mind, and is substratum of the whole universe. Thus, agocara is imperceptible, unknowable and indescribable. Bhartrhari (600 CE) also describes atman as agocara and extraordinary vacamagocara-caritra-vicitritaya (Sringara Satakam). It may be clarified that agocara does not mean negativity; instead, it indicates the positivity of the eternal and Supreme Being. It may be mentioned that in order to indicate the positive reality of atman-Brahman, the method of describing atman’s non-objectivity is adopted in the Upanishads. Accordingly through such expressions as neti neti (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad II.3.6), atmatva of worldly objects is refuted. Further, propounding the incomprehensibility of atman, through the negative approach, (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.5.15) says that atman is incomprehensible because it

Uttaradhikari In Hinduism

Uttaradhikari is successor to an office vacated by the predecessor by way of retirement, transfer or death. In domestic matters, when the father or the karta of the family dies, his place is taken by his legal heir who acts as the kart and is called uttaradhikari. According to ancient Hindu law, the son, the grandson, and the great grandson come in the list of uttaradhikari of a person. Manusmriti (9/13), Vasishta (17/5), Vishnu (15/46) and Yajnavalkya (1/78) advocate this theory. According to the Mitakshara theory, the son, the grandson or the great grandson have the right of succession to one’s property. Baudhayana Dharmasutra (115/113) tell us that an individual, his real brother, his own caste wife’s son, grandson or a great grandson are called as avibhakta-daya-sapinda; only in the absence of these the property of a person goes to his distant relatives. If a person dies without a son, a grandson, or a great grandson, according to Yajnavalkya, his wife, daughters (their sons), moth

Bhagavad Gita Chapter VIII Verse 26 – 27

Verily these bright and dark paths of the world are considered eternal. One leads to non-return, by the other one returns. (Bhagavad Gita 8.26) No yogi, O son of Pritha, is deluded after knowing these paths. Therefore, O Arjuna, be thou steadfast in yoga, at all times. (Bhagavad Gita 8.27) These paths, devayana and pitriyana, are part of samsara, and as samsara is eternal, so are these paths. Devayana is the path of light by which go those who seek for wisdom. Its course is marked throughout by bright objects, while pitriyana is the path of darkness, the path of desire and ignorance, and its course is dark all the way. In the Isha Upanishad we find a prayer where Agni (the god of light) is addressed by the departing soul: ‘O Agni (Bright One)! Lead us by the good path. O God! Thou knowest all our deeds, remove all evil from us.’ We must know the two paths and then must live in such a way that we may go by the path of light.
