News & Blog

> Meaning of verse:

Connection of 2 independent objects / things is called ‘sanyog’ and their disconnect is called ‘viyog’. Freeing onself from viyog is ‘samadhi’. Once such freedom is attained, the state of yog-sanyog is not reverted hence the word ‘vipramukta’ is used. One who becomes ‘vipramukta’ becomes ‘anagaar’ and one who becomes ‘anagaar’ becomes ‘bhikshu’. Do listen as I explain the modesty i.e. lifestyle of such a person.

> Essence of verse:

  • Sanyog means connection of 2 independent things – For e.g. holding of eye glasses in hand. Eyeglasses and hand are independent things. When we hold glasses in hand it is sanyog and when we keep glasses down two things again become independent.
  • The word ‘my’ is identifier of sanyog i.e. ‘family’ and ‘my family’, ‘thoughts’ & ‘my thoughts’. When ‘my’ is used, it is sanyog.
  • The emotional attachment with objects / things / feelings is also sanyog.
  • Freeing oneself from sanyog is vippamukkassa.
  • Agaar means exception in commitment and Anagaar means no excuse in commitment, no exit & escape doors.
  • Bhikshu means seeking support for fulfilling needs as offering and not by attacking / forcing / snatching
    The one who becomes like bhikshu and anagaar, we will see what is the lifestyle of such a person who is vinayi (maxims of modesty) that will be narrated in sequence in following gathas.
