  AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 4 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 1 of  40 Vedanta Madhuryam Salutations to all.We have finished yet another year and have already started the New Year. It is essential toremember the ultimate goal of life as realization of the non-dual reality of Brahman andthereby getting rid of all sorrows and ever rejoicing in bliss. Until this goal of moksha is keptin mind, we will not strive for achieving this goal in life. The desire for moksha is calledmumukshutva and is one of the four main qualities required in order to gain knowledge (andmake knowledge fruitful or lead to eternal bliss). Many people have desire for moksha buttheir desire for moksha is weak in the form of “I will gain moksha but first I need to get a job, then I need to marry etc.” Such kind of weak mumukshutva will not give us moksha inthis birth.Human birth is very rare indeed and is got after many virtues in many previous births. Andin such a birth it is very tough indeed to come in contact with mahatmas and gain someknowledge about the ultimate reality of Brahman or moksha. Such a precious birth andprecious situation shouldn’t be merely wasted for worldly pleasures alone. Moksha isn’tcontrary to worldly pleasures but what moksha requires is just internal focus on Brahman.External activities will happen the same way as it happens now even if we follow the path of moksha.The path of moksha is only through Vedanta or the knowledge portion of the Vedas(knowledge found in the Upanishads as well as other granthas or works). The more andmore we learn Vedanta we will be swept away by the beauty in Vedanta. And each momentwe learn and implement Vedanta we will be able to experience the bliss of Brahman. ThusVedanta is not only beautiful in theory but it is also beautiful while implementing. There isnothing more sweeter in the entire world than Vedanta as it alone will lead to eternal blisshere and now itself.This magazine is an attempt to bring out the intricacies of Vedanta thereby makingsadhakas understand the beauty of Vedanta. Those who are able to appreciate the beautyof Vedanta will never stop learning and implementing Vedanta. Though they may stillperform worldly activities like a normal worldly person still their mind will be constantlydwelling on Vedanta. Vedanta’s main subject-matter is the non-dual reality of Brahman.  AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 4 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 2 of  40 Thus through constantly abiding in Brahman, such people will be able to quickly progresstowards the goal of moksha.Many lives have gone in the past in waste. We, being the wise set of beings amongst allspecies, shouldn’t let yet another birth go waste. Therefore we should strive to understandthe beauty of Vedanta thereby learning and implementing Vedanta we should strive toachieve the goal of moksha here and now itself. Death is constantly waiting to pounce uponus and therefore not even a moment should be wasted without striving for realization.Prayers to the almighty that this magazine serves the purpose to make sadhakas enjoy thesweetness of Vedanta thereby making them learn and implement Vedanta soon itself.May we all through remembering of Brahman as the non-dual reality behind the entireillusory world be able to get rid of all sorrows and be able to ever rejoice in bliss here andnow itself.AUM NAMAH SHIVAYAJan 4 th    AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 4 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 3 of  40 Anukramaanika Vedanta Madhuryam .................................................................................................................................... 1Naishkarmya Siddhi....................................................................................................................................... 4Chathussutra Prakaashah ........................................................................................................................... 15Avidyaa Prakaashah .................................................................................................................................... 21Vedanta Shabda Vicharanam ...................................................................................................................... 32Karma Nirupanam ....................................................................................................................................... 37Anukramaanika Nirdesham ........................................................................................................................ 40  AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 4 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 4 of  40 Naishkarmya Siddhi Jagat – the world of experienceEach and every moment we experience the external world of objects and people. Mereperception alone doesn’t happen with the external world but actions are performedconstantly either at the physical plane or the mental plane. Perceptions and actions togethermake up the experience of the external world. Helping in these both are the sense organs of perception and action. Without sense organ it is impossible to experience the sense objects(the entire world).Since experience of the world is constantly happening, there is always an effort to makeexperiences perfect. Perfection isn’t with respect to holding on to everything but withrespect to experiences leading to eternal bliss. Nobody wants to experience sorrow as theultimate goal of life is getting rid of sorrow and ever rejoicing in bliss alone. It doesn’tmatter whether a person is learned or not, rich or not – irrespective of all distinctions theultimate goal of life is to get rid of sorrows and ever rejoice in bliss. Until this goal isachieved a person will strive to achieve this goal through all the various means that areavailable. The only means available where we have a say (or so we think) is the externalworld. Hence we find that people constantly try to control objects and people of the worldthinking that it will lead to eternal bliss. This is a wrong notion and foolishness alone asinstead of controlling themselves, such people try to control the entire world.AMMA gives a story to illustrate the foolishness to trying to control the entire world. Once aKing went outside his palace and he got pricked by a thorn, since there was no custom towear footwear. As a result of this he came back to the palace and ordered his minister tocarpet the entire kingdom so that his feet wouldn’t be pricked again. The minister wasdumbfound as he knew that such an activity can never be completed. It is impossible tocarpet the entire kingdom. AMMA says that the minister mentioned the foolishness in theKing’s thinking and gave a real working solution for the problem. The minister told the Kingto wear a slipper. After this the King’s feet wasn’t pricked ever though there were thorns allthroughout the kingdom.Often we try to control the entire world but forget to control ourselves. We also forget thetruth that the external world cannot be controlled but through control of ourselves we willbe able to attain the ultimate goal of eternal bliss here and now itself.
