  AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 17 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 1 of  43 Vedanta Madhuryam Salutations to all.We have slowly started in the New Year and as days pass by, all the resolutions that havebeen taken up will fade away. Even those resolutions which are still kept in mind will not befollowed with full strength. Thereby mahatmas always emphasize on not having resolutionsbut taking decisions and following them promptly without any fail. As Kabir says, whateverhas to be done tomorrow has to be done today and whatever has to be done today shouldbe done now itself; as later something else will come up and we will not be able to do whatwas planned to be done.As ardent sadhakas seeking the ultimate goal of life of moksha, we shouldn’t even let onesecond go waste. As Sankara says, we are always closing towards death therefore seekingmoksha or Brahman is very essential. Though generally the passion for anything stays onlyin the beginning; as time passes by, passion also weakens therefore it is essential to remainpassionate about the goal of moksha.Since the science that deals with moksha is Vedanta therefore passion towards Vedantashould be maintained at all times. Though this might seem to be very tough indeed toimplement, it is very easily implemented if we remember the goal of moksha as eternal blissto be achieved through following of Vedanta. And Vedanta is that science which once tastedwill make us addicted to it – though it is very tough to taste Vedanta still if we are able totaste Vedanta then we will find that passion for Vedanta never vanishes and only keeps onincreasing (until we are ever dwelling or living in Vedanta).The purpose of this magazine which is released every fortnight is to kindle the passion of Vedanta through bringing out the beauty in or of Vedanta. Vedanta is wrongly considered bymany as dull or dry – in essence Vedanta is the most beautiful and passionate science wecan find in the entire world. It is this science that brings to life the entire world of sentientand insentient beings. Thus each and every minute when we are remembering Vedanta, wewill be remembering the essence of the entire world (the beauty of the entire world). Whatmore can be beautiful than this?  AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 17 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 2 of  43 The proof for beauty of Vedanta lies in the simple fact that great masters of the past haveconstantly written on Vedanta. Though before Sankara’s time itself Vedanta was mentionedalmost clearly still Sankara wrote commentaries in order to bring the right meaning toeverybody. Later many acharyas have written on Vedanta and even now we find greatmasters writing on Vedanta. This is only because of the beauty which is the very essence of Vedanta.Other than writing on Vedanta great masters also take up the same subject over and overagain. With respect to Bhagavatham we can find that both the preacher and the listener arealways attracted to a saptaaham irrespective of whether it is the first or the hundredth one.Similar is the case with Vedanta itself (really speaking Vedanta is the very essence of Bhagavatham). The more and more one learns about Vedanta, its beauty will become moreand more clear. And as Vedanta becomes clearer we will find our life itself becoming filledwith bliss. It is this bliss that is the ultimate goal of life and it can be achieved through onlyVedanta (and no other means). Therefore we should all strive to constantly remainimmersed in drinking of the beauty of Vedanta. Since the literature on Vedanta is hugeindeed, therefore it is very easily possible if we have desire for moksha. Desire for mokshawill automatically take us to dwelling our mind constantly in Vedanta. Thereby throughVedanta we will be able to realize our very nature of Brahman and will be able to everrejoice in bliss. If even one person is able to achieve this goal of moksha, then the purposeof this magazine is served.Prayers to the almighty so that we all will be able to achieve this goal of moksha soon itself through Vedanta whose beauty is being explained in this magazine. May we all strive todrink the beauty of Vedanta so that eventually we will be able to through constantlycontemplating on Brahman attain the ultimate goal of life as moksha and will be able toever rejoice in bliss here and now itself.AUM NAMAH SHIVAYAJan 17 th    AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 17 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 3 of  43 Anukramaanika Vedanta Madhuryam .................................................................................................................................... 1Satyatva Siddhi .............................................................................................................................................. 4Chathussutra Prakaashah ........................................................................................................................... 15Avidyaa Prakaashah .................................................................................................................................... 22Vedanta Shabda Vicharanam ...................................................................................................................... 35Yoga Nirupanam.......................................................................................................................................... 40Anukramaanika Nirdesham ........................................................................................................................ 43  AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA VEDANTA MADHURYAM 17 Jan 13http://vedantatattva.org/vedantagroup/VedantaMadhuryamPage 4 of  43 Satyatva Siddhi Truth – the search for itThe power of truth is very strong even for those who do not follow it (and follow untruth).Life is a continuous journey in search of truth. Truth can be said to be the ultimate goal of life itself. But whether this goal is achieved or not depends upon an individual’s perspectivevision. Very rarely people knowingly search for truth. Until this knowingly searching starts,chances of finding truth will be very less. In other words, the probability of finding truthwithout searching for it is very less and negligible. Vidyaranya says that rarely personunknowingly finds the truth; the example provided by Vidyaranya is that of a personglancing out of his window and seeing some light. Searching for the light source the personis lead to a dump of garbage. Separating or looking through the garbage the person finds arare diamond. Finding of diamond for this person was accidental alone. Such accidentalleaving to fate is only encouraged by fools whereas wise people will plan well for the futurein order to avoid any surprises as well as failures.Trying to leave the search of diamond unto the hands of fate is like learning just onechapter of an entire subject for an exam. We might get lucky with the exam but for howlong? Therefore wise people always will plan everything properly.This planning properly with respect to search for truth is very essential because truthreveals itself only to those who ardently seek it. Mundaka Upanishad says that truth isn’trealized through listening of discourses, giving discourses or one’s intellect; instead truthreveals itself to those who seek it ardently.Thus the first thing sadhakas have to develop is the earnestness to search for truth. Nowthe big question of why search truth comes into picture. This question is very easilyanswered once we understand the nature of the world.World – constantly changing and hence sorrowfulThe lord very beautifully qualifies the world in just two words as anityam and asukham –that which is temporary and sorrowful. That the world is constantly changing need not beexplained (though for weak-intellect people, it is essential to explain this as well). Each andevery moment we experience the transient nature of the world. Thus Sankara says that theworld is so transient like the water on a lotus leaf. One moment water is there on top of the
