Description
Back of the Book

Adi Shankaracharya composed a number of Vedantic works for imparting the knowledge of the Self. One of these hymns is the famous “Bhaja Govindam.”

They invite us to open our eyes to a higher dimension of living. The whole text of Bhaja Govindam in essence means ‘Wake up, seek the lord, and stop seeking the primitive and superficial things in life.’

The compilation of thoughts presented in this book is applicable to one and all. Swami Sukhabodhananda in his unique style explains the verses with deep clarity and understanding.

Preface

To be sensitive to follow the footsteps of the wise and to seek what they have sought and not be caught in their footsteps is the contradiction of the spiritual path. The great revolutionary saint through these simple poetic verses unfolds the secrets of wise living.

The sensitive search has to be found in everyday life but alas, one gets stuck to mundane everydayness of life and thus misses the magic of living life wisely. To be aware of the possibility of the search is a gift we owe ourselves. To miss this is to be in despair in a spiritual sense.

It is one thing to be clear of the end of the journey but it is the wise journey which truly matters in the end. I have put in my love and experience in commenting on these famed, most revered verses. The commentaries of these verses are not meant to be taught but it is more of expressing my journey which is unfolding to the music of the spiritual path.

The purpose of the ‘fish net’ is to catch fishes; once it is caught the net is not important. The purpose of these words is to convey the mystery of the spiritual path and its goal; once this is grasped the words become redundant.

The world is ever charged with divinity. But when one is filled with mundane activities, one misses the divine flavor. Never make this mistake. Flow with life, grow with life, and renounce the unessential. Let the unessential remind you of the essential and thus be alive with the essential.

If one has eyes to see, one will see that this very world is soaked in heaven. Even a blade of grass is a flame or an expression of godliness. Seeing this, one will take off one’s psychological shoes of vanity and touch the world with wordless reverence.

The poetic words of the master are revolutionary and it is relevant even in today’s world that is divided, in conflict, repressed and unbalanced. The unhappiness is spread all around in spite of material abundance. The real answers to the core weakness of humanity are hidden in these verses.

I pray and hope you benefit from these verses and my commentaries on them. I thank P.R. Madhav for lovingly editing this book. I deeply thank Mrs Deviki jaipuria and my loving mother as a source of inspiration and support for all my endeavours. I thank all my students who have helped me to make a difference to the world. Let us join the company of the wise and know the delight of the soul. Let us transform one’s burning heart into a healing heart and live the language of the wise.
