Warrier's COLLAGE July 11, 2021 : Sanathanasudha

Welcome to Warrier's COLLAGE On Sunday July 11, 2021 Sanathanasudha book release https://youtu.be/WtX_8lrTm64 Good Morning When I was glancing through the copy of "Sanathanasudha" by P V Viswanathan Nambudiri, remembered "Arshajnanam" by Nalappat Narayana Menon and "Bhagavad-Gita Swadhyam" by Nityachaitanya Yati (I received a pre-publication copy in 1991). Perhaps, many of the works in regional languages, including Malayalam and Tamil, do not get the audience they deserve world-wide. Intuitively I feel "Sanathanasudha" will find an English version in some form soon. With this thought I dedicate today's Collage to the team behind "Sanathanasudha" M G Warrier E Obituary : Dr P K Warrier (1921-July 10, 2021) Last year Dr P K Warrier said : https://youtu.be/J-BjgBRM2Es A The book on my table : Sanathanasudha by P V Viswanathan Nambudiri "Sanathanasudha" (Malayalam) By P V Viswanathan Nambudiri Sanathanasudha is essentially a compilation of "Arshajnanam" shared through 51 discourses by the author. This observation is, but a merciless oversimplification of the lifelong effort put into the learning process by the author and for the creation and release of the book form by his friends and admirers. In a limited sense Dr Viswanathan Nambudiri has followed Shankaracharya's path for the benefit of his contemporaries and several future generations who can improve their immunity against the virus of negativism and fatality that's spreading in society. The book is divided into six sections, namely : 1 Vaidikavangmayam covering Vedas, Vedangas and Upavedas 2 Darshanika Veekshanam covering different aspects of philosophical perspectives 3 Aanushtthanikam covering Smrutis, rites, rituals and ashrama dharmas 4 Oupanishadam covering 10 major Upanishads for which Shankaracharya wrote commentaries 5 Aithihaasikam covering Ramayanam and Mahabharatam 6 Pauranikam covering 18 Puramas and Bhagavatam followed by an Appendix providing clarifications for anticipated doubts. In the first edition publishers (Prasaram Sanskritha Samajam Kottayam) have printed only 1000 copies of the book. With about 1000 pages and priced Rs800 generous well-wishers might have subsidized costs. Interested readers can contact 89213 89705 or 93495 07932. B Brahmopadesa : V T Panchapagesan Chennai Eyes see the World. Mind sees the Eyes. Inner Soul perceives the working mind.... This is Upanishad. Chandogya Upanishad elaborates further : There are five doors to the Heart which are presided over by five deities. The eastern door is Prana, representing The Eye. Deity is Aditya. He who meditates on Aditya will get Food and will also be lustrous. The southern gate is Vyana, that is The Ear, and the presiding deity is The Moon. He who meditates on the moon will be wealthy. The western gate of the heart is Apana, and that is Speech. The presiding deity in this case is Fire. He who meditates on fire as the cluster of Vedic study, will get the boon of pursuing Vedic studies. The northern gate is Samana, and indicates the mind. The presiding deity is Parjanya, and he who meditates on this deity will be blessed with Fame. The upper door to the heart is Udana. The deity in this case is Akasa. He who meditates on Akasa will have Vigour and Greatness. Meditation upon the five doors of the heart is a part of Brahmopasana. The five deities mentioned above are the presiding deity for each of the above doors. They are the doorkeepers of the world of Brahman. They lead us to the Supreme Brahman. What these symbolically suggest is that the ears, eyes, speech, nose, and mind are all hurdles in our path to attaining the Brahman who resides in the heart. So he who conquers these is able to attain the ONE who is in his heart. Sage Sandilya declares that the Paramatma is the doer of all actions and is possessed of all auspiciousness. This Paramatma resides in the heart, and this Paramatma is the same as Brahman. V T Panchapagesan C Purusharthas https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/leading-a-balanced-life-though-pursuit-of-purushartha/leading-a-balanced-life-though-pursuit-of-purushartha-12089/ "Concept of Purushartha: Centuries old wisdom According to the ancient Indian texts, a human born on earth must pursue ‘Purushartha’, (पुरुषार्थ), the only way to seek truth and attain salvation. Puruṣārtha literally means an “object of human pursuit”. It is a key concept in Hinduism and refers to the four end goals of a human life. The four puruṣārthas are Dharma (righteousness, moral values); Artha (prosperity, economic values); Kama (pleasure, love, psychological values); and Moksha (liberation, spiritual values)."
