HARI OM THURSDAY: 06-09-2001: FIRST DISCOURSE OM MADHAVAY NAMHA KESHAVA MADHAVA TUZHYA NAMAT RE GODAVA – We hear this song for years. We are going forward after looking at each part of this NAM. What is there in this NAM MADHAVA? All INDIANS are crazy with this NAM that there is no limit for their craziness. There are different forms created of this MADHAVA known as RAM,KRISHNA and SAI. (In SANSKRIT) MA dhatu (VERB) means to measure. MADHAVA means the one who measures any thing completely and who himself is a measure. Which measurement HE does? HE is SWAMI of all things. If HE measures all then what do we measure? What we do is a practical measurement. SAISACHHARITRA, SAI himself used to go to market to bring vegetables and all types of spices and all raw items (like grains) etc. which HE requires for HANDI. HE used to bargain with shopkeepers, grocers for correct price.But we do measurement with wrong things.We never measure where actually it is required.We do measurements in relationship even at home, although they may be mother-father, brothers-sisters or best friends. Now a day even mother-father behaves in same manner. In MARATHI, there is a saying that JYACHI KHAVI POLI TYACHI VAJAVAVI TALI. (YOU CLAP HANDS FOR THAT PERSON WHO FEEDS YOU). Suppose there a couple is having 2-3 children, then they praise about that boy/girl who gives them more money. We may say bad words for a neighbor till the time we don’t have any work with him. When we come to know that he can help to have employment to our son we start praising him. We praise and label him even with those qualities, which he may not have. Here we measure our needs. If my need is bigger than other person’s need then in that case I may like the person so as to fulfill my need. But if that person’s need (from me) is more than my need from him then I may dislike that person.In society also we love according to our needs and make relations.This type of relation is like air balloon,one day, which may break up by just touch of a pin. There are many such relations, which occupy a larger portion of our lives. They may disappear with touch of a small hole pin. Who touched the hole pin he or me is more important.
We make measurements in relations. BAPU explained with day to day routine examples. 1. Out of 2 brothers if younger brother scores 90% marks and elder brother gets less marks parents may tease elder one every time. Don’t blame elder for fewer marks. Don’t depress him for such things. 2. If mother and father both are doctors then they make compulsion that their son/daughter must become a doctor. Here SOCIAL STATUS is my NEED.We never see need of that child or think about his future.We take a scale and measure our needs accordingly.Sometimes even we use our children to fulfill the same needs without considering about their opinion. Here we are just putting unnecessary burden of our needs on children’s shoulders. 3. Normally people go to theater to see a drama or movie. People who are very sensitive cry out by looking at emotional scene. Women like picture like “ SOMEONE”S SARI”. Some women cry from start to end. They use their SARI Pallo to wipe out tears, which are uncontrollable for them. BAPU told HE has observed some women crying almost for all 3 hours. One such incident BAPU narrated - BAPU has observed an old woman was almost crying for all 3 hours during that drama. BAPU thought that woman might be very sensitive who was crying to see the helpless situation of daughter-in-law. SO HE thought she may love her daughter-in-law like her own daughter. Without her knowledge BAPU followed her up to house and was very much shocked to see her strange behavior. The same old woman who was weeping badly at drama rang a doorbell. After few minutes when daughter-in-law opened the door she shouted at her and abused her. She blamed her father at the same time.The words used by her were very strange. Within few minutes she again started giving bad words to her daughter–in-law for not serving her afternoon lunch.She again abused her father and informed her that her father is not providing her food. Her own son is earning and feeding her. BAPU asked a question that what was use of those tears? HE explained that tears were the need of that woman. Those false tears were need of her mind. She found injustice happened with her by her mother-in-law in previous days.She compared her life there with helpless daughter-in–law of drama. She found similarity so she cried out. But incase of her daughter-in-law she again changed the measurement as that was not her need. The actual need was of her daughter-in-law and so scale, measurement were changed. 4. BAPU narrated one more incident.HE explained that same thing happens about man also. After a marriage a man brings his wife at his house. While leaving her own house his wife and her mother & father cry out. He never realizes those tears. Because he was husband that time and need and scale was different. But when same incident repeats when his own daughter is married. He first pretends to be not sensitive. Actually he has cried out before giving her fare well but without knowledge of others (alone in a room). But when in last moments daughter come to him and cry out, he also can’t control his tears. Again here need and measurement scale has been changed automatically. Now father was crying and not a husband. (MAN was same) Here man was worried about his daughter. He remembers all those situations when his wife was helpless. How his mother has tortured his wife, how he has cheated his wife. Here his own blood (his daughter) is put in the same frame. He considers same situations might happen with his daughter so he becomes unhappy. Here the burn or sensations of pain are related with his daughter so scale of measurement is changed. This means even our behavior, our feelings; our emotions are according to our needs. 5. When there is inspection in office I reach office in time. I work sincerely. But the moment inspection is over and inspection officer leaves the office I just dance madly to express that tension is no more on me now. Why this different behavior? Now a day there is new policy that works as per the rules. Then why strikes are taking place? In those days whole functioning body becomes support less. Thus we use rules according to our needs. We never follow rules according to actual rules.Think about your life. You measure every thing with a scale, which is not a true measurement. Hence, standard of measurement is fixed. If people measure one foot by hands, according to different hands the measurements of one foot will differ. So if every one decide his own measurement there will be a lot of confusion only created. Standards of Measurements must be fixed so as to run World’s business smoothly. If measures of NEETI (NEETIMULYE) are changing according to needs then measurements will be wrong. Then who will do measurement of my needs? Who will decide what are my needs and what are not my needs? I decide what I want and hence measurement becomes too big.
BAPU told once HE read an article in newspaper that in Pune city, there was a man who was having 9 daughters. He used to sit near graveyard and observe dead bodies carefully. When he was finding a dead body of a young married woman he used to collect information about her address. And before 13 days to her deathhe used to finalize marriage of his daughter with that man who has lost his wife. In such a manner, he married his 7 daughters in rich families, only thing was his daughters were married to those men and became their second wives. (BEEJVARASHI LAGNA) but unfortunately he could not find such type of men for his 8th and 9th daughters. He realized that all 7 were married in rich families. So he finalized these 2 daughters marriage in rich families only, but their husbands were of 62 and 67 years old respectively. After few months these daughters lost their husbands and returned to his home, as they had become widows.That time they were not accepted by those rich families as stepchildren of those families were not ready to accept them as stepmothers.
Here BAPU told to look after for better future of daughters after marriage was that man’s basic need.But he fixed to marry a daughter in rich family as his measurement, which was totally wrong. Finally he asked these helpless daughters to work as a cook to his elder daughter’s houses. His need of rich family was a false measurement. Think carefully whether we measure our needs correctly. House, clothes, SANSAR – these needs should be having how much importance in life. How much their depth, width and length should be? Otherwise if it is wrong then it becomes costly or heavy for me. Think in all directions. Whether it is worth to ask any thing, do I have that ability or capacity? Can I digest my big expectations? It depends on me whether to take it as a food or poison or medicine. Even if I take poison, it will be digested but effects will be severe. It is very important that I should digest and get best results from that. Man is always greedy for every thing, which is attractive. If you take a good decision surely you will get good days as future. BAPU narrated an incident. Once a man came to HIM and asked HIM how to become rich? What should he do? BAPU asked him to do a business. Again he asked which business he should do? BAPU replied to do any sort of purchasing and selling. The man insisted BAPU to tell him what exactly he should purchase and sell. BAPU told him that depends on his financial situation. Now BAPU asked him how much capital does he have? The man was not ready to answer. He told BAPU that HE is omniscient and can easily find out the answer. BAPU told him by that means HE will know how much capital he has. But the man was not ready for that also. He denied BAPU to know his capital and went away. BAPU told that he had enormous wealth and wanted to use BAPU to fulfill his need of more wealth. BAPU said if you come to ME to fulfill your false needs, they will never be fulfilled. BAPU said for that man if HE had provided positive answer for his needs, HE would have been a great man. BAPU had not done that and hence, HE could not become a great man for him. BAPU asked a question to all crowd. Where does this need is originated? Almost 90% people replied in human mind. BAPU denied to this answer. Again HE asked whether need is originated outside my mind. Some replied that outside mind it is originated. But BAPU replied neither in human mind nor outside mind, needs are originated. BAPU again asked then where does the need is originated? Now no one was ready to answer. BAPU laughed (like a small child teasing his friends) and said now people have become wise and not ready to answer as if I am fooling you. HE replied it is true that neither in mind nor outside the need is originated. NEED is originated on boundary line of my mind and society mind (SAMAJ MAN). BAPU quoted an example of NARSIMHA incarnation of MAHAVISHNU. BAPU said NARSIMHA killed HIRANYAKASHYAPU not inside house and not outside house. HE killed him at the entrance of house. HE killed him neither in day nor in night but at evening. Neither man nor animal killed him But NARSIMHA (half man and half animal – body ) killed him. BAPU said if my need is dependent on social status, greediness and fear like Hiranyakashyapu then capacity of origination of my need becomes different. From the chemical reaction of my mind and SAMAJ MAN need is created. In one society to have drinks is a status symbol while in other society the same is not status symbol. Here to have drinks is not need of my mind. But the need is developed from chemical reaction of my mind and SAMAJ mind. Suppose a man is having sexual intention for a particular woman in mind. For almost 99% incidents he can’t rape that woman due to fear of society. But for 1% of time when he gets a chance to do the rape when society will not be aware of his behavior, he will 100% do the rape. Here the absence of society has developed animal nature in that man. Thus from chemical reaction of my mind and Society mind need is developed. If I want to measure my need,then I should decide and think about my need irrespective of Society need. Don’t bother about what society will say, what people will say. But think about what my GOD will say. That time automatically your needs will be reduced. Always think what my GOD/ SADGURU will say? But no one is ready to accept the fact that HE (GOD and SADGURU) knows each and every thing of mine.
SADGURU TATVA (MY BAPU) keeps quiet and TWINKLE EYES till HE knows that there are no bad effects resulting from that needs. When HE observes that bad effects are going to occur, the moment HE cuts out your feet. That doesn’t mean HE prevents you from taking steps in that direction. SADGURUTATVA knows PARTIALITY and HE knows better how to protect HIS devotee from any risky situation. BAPU narrated a story to prove HIS above saying. Once Mr. SHESHRAO, cousin of (SHRIVIDYAMAKARAND) GOPINATH PADHYE, went to AKKALKOT SWAMI for HIS darshan in 1875.That time Mr. SheshRao was 18 years old. He asked permission to SWAMI to stay there for one month. SWAMI gave a small slap on his head and gave permission to stay there. Mr. Sheshrao used to do all types of works (SEVA) whatever possible for him. He never said no to any work. Another woman devotee SUNDARABAI was also staying there with swami. As it is described in SAISACCHARITRA she was fond of doing collection of all things. Swami used to give permission to do all HIS seva to Mr. Sheshrao. HE was never angry with him. Once HE took bath from MR. Sheshrao. (TO GIVE A BATH TO SADGURU is one type of seva). Sunderabai was jealous about all these things as she was having that right of seva in beginning. She used to serve food for SWAMI and do HIS seva before Mr. Sheshrao.She thought that Mr. Sheshrao was B.A. graduate and he might be complaining against her to SWAMI as he was staying almost all time with SWAMI. So she decided to play a trick. Once a devotee came for Swami’s darshan and offered Rs.100 as DAKSHINA to SWAMI. Sunderabai took that money and hided below her sari pallo. She kept that 100rupees note in PAN box (PANACHI CHANCHI) of Mr. Sheshrao. Then she started shouting and gathered crowd to tell that Mr. Sheshrao was a thief and he had stolen 100 Rupees of Swami’s Dakshina. There was no one to tell the truth. When People found same money in Mr.Sheshrao’s box, the man who offered money also witnessed that same money (Some notes of RS. 20 and some of Rs.5) he had offered. As money was found in Mr. Sheshrao’s box people blamed him and thrown away from SWAMI’s MATH (AASHRAMA). There was another devotee of SWAMI Mr. ChintamanRao Tol.He was having trust and love for Mr. Sheshrao. He asked him not to worry as he had not stolen money and SWAMI will never blame him or throw away him. He asked Mr. Sheshrao to stay with him in his house. This incident happened around 12.oo hours in afternoon. That time soldiers of AKKALKOAT Queen came and arrested Sunderabai for complaints of robbery they have received against her. When the soldiers searched her house they found Sweet boxes (BARFI boxes), costly sarees and stolen materials. When she ran to SWAMI for escape , SWAMI shouted at her , abused her and asked soldiers to arrest her. (SWAMI said AADHI HYA RANDELA BEDYA THOKA) Swami asked Mr. ChintamanRao to bring Mr. Sheshrao.(SWAMI just indicated by hands(SHESH means NAG , SNAKE) and asked him to call him) When Mr. Sheshrao came , Swami asked him to massage HIS legs. Sunderabai thought that SWAMI would not know what she had done. But SWAMI sent her to prison within 2 GHATAKA (1GHATAKA = 24 minutes and 2 GHATAKA= 48 minutes) only. Though Sunderabai was Swami’s devotee, she was not having DEVOTION BHAV, while that real BHAV was of Mr. Sheshrao. Don’t try to cheat at least HIM. HE is not sitting in idols only. Always remember that MY PARMESHWAR is not dumb. HE has power to go any where at any time without any limitations. Try to measure your needs with PARMESHWARI WISH.Then you will know UCHIT/ANUCHIT and wrong things or mistakes will not be done by you. BAPU narrated another story of Mr. SheshRao. After few days of above incident once a man came to Mr. SheshRao and cried out that SWAMI had bitten him with a broom as someone complained SWAMI about him, and which was wrong. Mr.SheshRao was having confidence about that man, Mr. Virupaksh Modi that he might be correct. So he went to SWAMI to prove Mr. Modi’s correctness. Here Mr. SheshRao had developed pride because of above incident of Sunderabai. Mr. JAGANNATH Padhye (FATHER OF Mr. GOPINATH PADHYE and his uncle) was sitting there near SWAMI.SWAMI bite him with same broom for long time. Mr. SheshRao’s body was completely wounded.Then his Uncle Mr. Padhye first massaged his whole body with TIL OIL. Then he blamed him for doing a fault. He explained him SWAMI knows very well what is TRUE and what is FALSE. He warned him to leave that village and never to step in his SADGURU’s MATH. Mr. SheshRao told him that man was crying so he couldn’t justify. But later on he repented and in same condition (with bare body – ARDHNAGNAVASTHET)he ran to SWAMI to ask his excuse. To his surprise he found SWAMI was also crying . Then he realized by that fault though SADGURU had bitten him,how much he had made sad, unhappy. From how much pain HE had to suffer because of HIS devotee. There were more pains in HIS mind than the pains of Mr. SheshRao’s body.
BAPU said HE told 2 stories of same man. Sr. No. FIRST STORY SECOND STORY 1. MY (Mr. SheshRao’s) fault Another devotee’s fault (Mr. Modi) 2. SWAMI was judge. Mr. SheshRao wanted to become judge. BAPU said when the same incident changed in another story Mr. SheshRao wanted to be SWAMI’s judge. There is no self-need for SADGURU. To know exact need I should do NAMSMARAN of PARMESHWAR, which will warn me. Whose need was to create a world? Not yours. PARMESHWAR thought the idea of becoming many from one.(EKOSME BAHUSYAM) That was HIS original need to create this world and which was HIS basic power.HIS wish was HE wants to be HAPPY and HE wants to distribute same happiness to all others. If my needs are according to HIS wishes then I get support, otherwise if my needs are against HIS wishes I get punishment for that and I have to stay in HIS NIYAM region. I should learn my need. Try to learn HIS need .HE wanted to give joy and I should be enjoying the same. My happiness or joy is not only my need but also HIS need. HIS need is that every devotee should be HAPPY. Even though both of us have same need I never become happy. So I should learn to change direction of my need to HIS need. When I turn to look Society’s Need I go away from HIM. (PARMESHWARAPASUN VINMUKH) Society is one part and I am another part. But my need and society’s need is not same. But in case of PARMESHWAR, my need and HIS need is same that is MY HAPPINESS (ANAND) . Even I beg to society it will not give me my ANAND. ONLY HE CAN GIVEME ANAND because MY HAPPINESS IS HIS NEED. If I follow HEETI MARG I will be happy. PARMESHWARIU need is I should go by NEETI MARG through proper channel (YACHYAYAVAT) and achieve ANAND. HIS need is every creature, every fraction should be ANANDI which HE had created.Measurement is of Anand. Whether it should be temporary or constant.If we think that sorrows are always present in life then my need will be reduced. BAPU told HE was taking PANCHAMI PRACTICAL EXAMINATION in that week . HE asked many students whom did they like more as a devotee in SAISACCHARITRA. BAPU said mostly many students wanted MHALSAPATI as a devotee and they wanted to become MHALSAPATI in their lives. Here BAPU explained there is a vast difference in having wish of becoming MHALSAPATI and having NEED of BECOMING MHALSAPATI. We have desire but not need of MHALSAPATI character. HE said when this NEED would be created? When I will have feeling that I want only SAINATH and I don’t want any other thing than HIM.I don’t want HIS ROOP, RANG, GUN AAKAR( no form ,color, quality and shape).Then only I can meet SAINATH. MHALSAPATI –there is no place at all for ASHEETATA,ATRUPTI AND GONDHAL(No HARSH ness, unsatisfaction,confusion). His only measurement was HIS SAINATH. HIS ONLY THIRST WAS SAI. If I want to become MHALSAPATI, I have to develop this NEED OF PARMESHWAR. I should not insist of holding HIS feet or having HIS particular form. I should not say I don’t want this or I want this. Not to ask any thing is very difficult.It is beyond situation of I want or not want. NHALSAPATI had gone beyond state of SHANT RAS. He had all above 3 qualities.There was no confusion in him, because he had given all his ties in HIS hands. EVERY DEVOTEE SHOULD BECOME MHALSAPATI IS SAINATH’S NEED. See this example of complete SHANT RAS and try to become like HIM. (BAPU’s indication was towards PIPA) MHALSAPATI was there with SAI through out HIS whole life. He was accompanied SAI from very first night till last night. He totally filled whole life of SAI.MHALSAPATI was completely pure (VISHUDHA). And hence after sunset only he was allowed to meet SAI, no body else. MHALSAPATI’s ONLY NEED WAS his PARMESHWAR SAINATH. I should at least learn to become MHALSAPATI by 1% in my life. I measure my needs. But I measure others needs by keeping PARMESHWAR As witness. Suppose, I am suffering from headache due to cold and at same time my friend is suffering from headache of brain tumor. In such a case I should stand after applying Vicks on my forehead, to help my friend.I never ask for unhappiness or sorrows to HIM. Only KUNTI asked always DUKH to KRISHNA. My measurement of DUKH is zero.So I think I am facing infinite amount of DUKH in life. I should measure DUKH with PARMESHWARI need. To become happy one should have SABURI (Patience). We measure DUKH with need so we find that big. Try to measure SUKH / DUKH with HIS measurement. My need for HIM or no need of HIM should be also decided by HIS need.Even if I don’t have HIS need same NIYAMS are applied to me. Even if I face difficulty I never realize why that came to me and I ask HIM why HE gave me punishment.PARMESHWARI WISH (ECHA) is symbol of SUKH and HIS NIYAM is symbol of DUKH. Even if I realize that PARMESHWAR is watching me, happiness will be created in my life. I should have only measurement of HIS WISH. RAMDAS SWAMI told only have wish of RAM. This MADHAV is measurement of world’s CHAITANYA because HE is ORIGIN of creation of world. So my measurement should be according to original measurement of HIM. HARI OM
