🧵4 Commands by #Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: People are habituated to satisfy their Svartha(self-interests)."I shall act upon something only if I get something out of it."This Svartha is present in everyone.We say that everyone is selfish but
#AdiShankara #Bhagavatpada says that it is good to have Svartha – provided you know what Svartha actually is. That which is beneficial to you is Svartha. Acquiring wealth, name and fame do not actually constitute Svartha. For all of these are transitory. Exert yourself to

attain that which is permanent. Then you can be truly said to have Svartha. He who does not realize this having attained the rare human birth is indeed pitiable.

दुर्लभं मानुषं देहं प्राप्य तत्रापि पौरुषम् ॥

Jagadguru Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: People may be classified as Astikas & Nastikas. An Astika has faith in the existence of God, Dharma, reincarnation, & the Vedas. One who has neither of these beliefs is classified a Nastika.
A Nastika cannot easily 1/n
be taught. Even a man who is completely ignorant can be taught. One who knows everything can also be told. But a Nastika is one who is like a man with half-baked knowledge.
अज्ञः सुखमाराध्यः सुखतरमाराध्यते विशेषज्ञः ।
ज्ञानलवदुर्विदगधं ब्रह्मापि नरं न रञ्जयति ॥

The #Shruti 2/n
(Veda) says – पुण्यो ह वै पुण्यः कर्मणा भवति पापः पापेन । – one attains joy by performing Punya and falls by sinning. It is our Dharma Shastras that decide what constitutes Punyam and what constitutes Papam (sin).

#Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: We have to take care to spend our lives every day purposefully. That is why it is said –
प्रत्यहं प्रत्यवेक्षेत नरश्चरितम् आत्मनः।
किं नु मे पशुभिस्तुल्यं...
“Man has to consult his conscience every day, as to how 1/5
his day went. He has to examine himself thus, “Did I live like a noble person or did I spend it like an animal?”. We must always remember that we can never shut our own conscience to errors we committed. A thief may deny that he committed a theft despite being roughed by cops.2/5
However despite his denial, his own conscience knows that he committed the theft.
Sri #AdiShankara states – नलिनीदलगतजलमतितरलंतद्वज्जीवितमतिशयचपलम् (The life of a person is as fragile as water drops trembling on a lotus leaf). Hence when we are blessed with this human birth,3/5

Today is the Jayanti of Shri Adi Shankracharya, the great sage of Bharat who revived Sanatana Dharma in its original glory in the 8th century.

His Sanskrit compositions are as revered as Vedic verses while being easy to recite bcoz of their snappy rhythm.


Here is one of his Stutis to Mahadev, where He is invoked in His Vaidyanath Roop. It’s very relevant today, given the great calamity of Corona Pandemic that our world is suffering from. Let’s all pray together to Mahadev today, thru this beautiful Stuti.

भारत की महान आध्यात्मिक परम्परा के मूर्धन्य प्रतिनिधि, ब्रह्म और आत्मा के अद्वैत दर्शन के प्रणेता जगतगुरू आदि शंकराचार्य जी की जन्म जयंती पर आचार्य की पुण्य स्मृति को कोटिशः नमन करता हूं। #AdiShankara #shankarajayanti Image
आदि शंकराचार्य जी ने देश के चारों कोनों की व्यापक यात्राएं कीं, समकालीन विद्वानों से विचार विमर्श किया तथा भारत की आध्यात्मिक और ज्ञान परम्परा की एकता को स्थापित किया। अपने दर्शन को आचार्यों से गंभीर शास्त्रार्थों की कसौटी पर परखा।
उनके ग्रंथ, उनकी आध्यात्मिक स्थापनाएं, उनका अद्वैत दर्शन आज भी अखिल मानवता का मार्ग प्रशस्त करता है। आदि शंकराचार्य जैसे तत्वदर्शी संतों के जीवन और कृतित्व का अनुशीलन स्वतः ही जीवन में मुक्ति, शांति और ज्ञान का अनुभव कराता है। #AdiShankara #shankarajayanti

I offer my humble tributes to the great saint, philosopher and visionary spiritual leader, Jagadguru
Adi Shankaracharya on his Jayanti today.

He was a sage of the highest realisation who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta and preached the oneness of Atman and Brahman. Image
Adi Shankaracharya travelled the length and breadth of the country enlightening the masses with his wisdom and discussions.

His preachings are an eternal source of wisdom. They transcend time and geographical boundaries and remain relevant at all times to come. #shankarajayanti
Reading the life and thoughts of great saints like Adi Shankara would give people wisdom, freedom, hope, joy and calmness. #AdiShankara #Shankaracharya

Finished reading a Kannada Novel #Kasheera by @SahanaVijay last night. Must confess, I’ve wept many a times while turning over pages. 376 pages aren’t just enough to capture the agony Kashmiri Pandits faced nor it has an end unless we Indians come together in their support.
Except for visiting the KP settlements in the valley, my trip to Kashmir valley in April-May 2017 was almost similar - encounter with youngsters that want a better & free life, ruined temples that scream the Hindu Glory of Kashmira, an all sublimed Shankaracharya Mandira & so on.
First on my list were the Krimchi Group of Monuments - Temples built in the “Nagara” style and legends say that Pandavas built these. Nestled deep in woods, this is a wonderful place to visit.
