Ten Commandments for Students from Taittiriya Upanishad – Part 7

Dear All,

 

Fifth of the Ten Commandments:

 

5)   Deva pitru Karyabhyam na pramaditavyam - (Hold on to worship of Gods and manes)


This means do not neglect your spiritual practices such as japa or prayers and medition.If one is spiritually strong; one can be always sure of never losing one’s calmness of the mind which is so essential to face the challenges of life.   This means having faith in a Transcendental Truth, in the eternity of the self. This brings an element of infinity and vastness of life.  Or else, what is the fun in being born like any other living being and dying a dog’s death? The great saint kabir remarked with a tinge of humor.

     

When you were born, you cried and others rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die, you rejoice and others cry.”

   

This means living a life of meaning and greatness. Why would otherwise people weep for one at death?

 

Another aspect of   this commandment is that we should be respectful to our cultural and spiritual heritage. We should ‘progress’ in life but not by neglecting or denouncing the time-honored wisdom our forefathers have left for us in the form of our cultural and spiritual tradition. This is what is meant by pitru karyabhyam

 

Stay with us......
