What is the real meaning of SATYAGRAHA

What is the real meaning of SATYAGRAHA

A student asked this question, "Sir, What is the real meaning of Satyagraha?". 

In fact, the question was like this, "Sir What is the real meaning of Satryagraha, Bhakti, and Upawas?"

The answer was, "All are having the same meaning and gist of it is, living for moment to moment with the almighty God."

While grammatical meanings:

Satya = Truth = Ultimate Reality = God. (This meaning is true in all the Indian languages like Sanskrit, Marathi, Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Bengali, etc. ) and Agrah = With compulsive love in Marathi.  Ex. Child is feed more by a its mother by saying the crow will take away your chocolate please eat that the devotee lives with God, both feel their presence at all the moments. Some devotees claim they can see the god everywhere, after some years of practice, as the soul gets so engrossed and devoted to God that his mind is full of God and he really sees the god eery where. Aum. Amen. In fact, that should be the real truth and the true reality of life. It's matter of experience, some may tell some may not, but, this truth can't be altered as it is the only aim of human life. 

Satyagraha = I' ll live only with God, at all the times. In fact, it's a state of mind, a state of devotion (Bhakti),  more than anything else.

In fact, even Bhakti means, that thing/entity which cannot be separated from God, or an entity which is got so unison/ one with God that it cannot be separated, i.e. A state when Bhakt (Devotee) and God becomes one with each other. Thus, God only has that power to hold his devotee with him, being almighty. 

Ex. Mahatma Gandhiji was successful, as throughout the day, he, used to have UPAWAS and was chanting name of God. Name of God is God himself. Everyone know he used to chant, Bhajans (Devotional songs) like Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram...., Vaishnav Jan to Tene Kahiyege..., etc. 

UPAWAS also means same, living with God, seating with God,....whether you are in cave like Rishi and Munis and fully engrossed in meditation, or working and devoting your work to God, or in Military, or in Business, or Student or House wife or Husband or this or that...., thus who you are has nothing to do with what you are doing if what ever you do is getting offered to SATYA, the God, the ultimate reality; and if you are following all his commandments, ethics, and live in prescribed format.

Rest, I'm ignorant, but, your generation is smart enough to understand everything better due to huge amount of awareness that you are getting every moment.

Aum. Amen.

Dr. Ashish Manohar Urkude,

Why we live and what is the purpose of living? (Poem)

Why we live and what is the purpose of living? (Poem)

Once in a village, all people gathered together,
All were called by a revered Saint,
Saint was respected by one and all.

The Saint, put one simple question to all,
"Why we live and what is the purpose of living?"

A Dacoit came forward before he being caught by police and said,
"I live to take revenge, and to mass wealth and power,
I also try to instill fear among citizens, so that I may feel, powerful."
 The Saint, tried to console the Dacoit and  said,
"My son, you're on wrong path, hate burns the soul, avoid this path and try living a normal life.
God will not like the way you're living. I know, you are a very good, agrarian, try to live that life, instead of a life of Dacoit."

The Dacoit, while crying said, "I'll try, I'll try", and left.

A Doctor came forward as he had to attend the patient and said,
"I live to save lives of more and more patients,
I also try to try make myself trustworthy and it helps me my life running well."

A Sadhu, just while seating said,
"I live for god, and try to remember him throughout the day and even at night,
my aim is spiritual enlightenment, and if someone comes to guide him on righteous path that leads to God."

A Student came and said,
"I want to learn more and more, and become one among a, the most knowledgeable persons in my life,
I also try to help my parents, so that, I can live a life dedicated to them."

A Housewife came and said,
"My aim is to keep my house clean and in peace and provide food and better living to all at my home,
I also try to nurture good qualities in my children."

An Officer from Government department, happened to be there, he said,
"My job is to provide proper services to all the citizens and till I live, I'll try my level best to provide it to one and all,
I also try to live a good and honest live."

A grocery shop owner came forward and said,
"I treat my customers as God, and provide them quality material,
I also try, not to mix profit oriented mind with the service to all,
I try earning less profit but try keeping customers intact.
After all, I'm food providers to many of you, it keeps my moral always high."

A film shooting was going on near the village, a film star came and said,
"My job is to make these people laugh, and entertain them in this hell kind of life,
I also try to be more famous and raise the bar of my film earning more,
If I get time, I go to temple, gurudwara, church and religious places, that's all I have faith in god."

Suddenly a grandfather came forward and said,
"Children, I have done all good services in my life,
Now, I'm trying to guide my children and grandchildren on path that leads to God,
That's the only reality in life."

The Saint, then concluded by saying,
"Yes, my brother, grandfather over here is right,
All the work that can be offered to God can't be wrong,
Hence, work is worship, is what we must try at every moment,
If you can't remember God every moment, then chant his name, remember him every now and then,
Devote every day to god by living a righteous life, and of course, service to man is service God.
In fact, just add, God's flavor in it, your life will be what you've dreamt and it will be better everyday, now onwards."

Aum. Amen.

God’s supreme advice in my agonies and joy (Poem)

God’s supreme advice in my agonies and joy
Whenever my heart burns, while, I see the workers working hard,
but getting negligible in return,
I feel, I should help them, and reduce their burden;
at that time, I talk to God and then God replies, 
“Do you think, I’m not in them and not taking care of them?”
Whenever my heart feels agony, when, I see, the eroding moral values, that are degrading the society,
I feel, I should step in, and help saints, reduce their responsibility;
at that time,
I talk to God and then god replies, “Do you think, I’m not taking care of this issue?”
Whenever my heart feels joy when I see the children playing and enjoying and getting full bliss of life,
I feel I should join them and feel the same;
at that time,
I talk to God and then God replies, “You yourself are supreme soul, and do you think you are not in any of these entities?”
Aum. Amen.

(I believe everyone reading this poem, will 100% agree that Veda are apourushey, because, these supreme words can't come from any other source than God/Almighty himself, Aum. Amen.).
