Is a Jivanmukta Subject to Ignorance: A Rare Book
Is a Jivanmukta Subject to Ignorance: A Rare Book
Description
From the Jacket

Jivanmukta is he who is released or liberated in his life-time. There are other two states of release, Videhamukti and Kramamukti. The Upanishadic view is that there is in the highest condition a disintegration of individuality, a giving up of selfish isolation, but it is not a mere nothing or death “As the flowing rivers disappear in the sea losing their names and forms, thus a wise man, freed from name and forms, goes to the divine person who is beyond all “ The Upanishads do not recognise the ultimate reality of the narrow individual self Those who pray for personal immortality take their stand on the ultimateness of the individual and urge its maintenance beyond the world, the real infinite life. What is best in the individual’s nature is the infinite, and that persists beyond the limits of physical existence.

It is said that the liberated soul becomes one with all and lives a life in unity with God. The positive description seems to suggest a sense of individuality which helps him to act in this world, though this individuality is not based on any self-feeling this individualisation of life seems to be necessary for the fulfillment of the joy of the one supreme.

Even though for purposes of self-expression there is this possession of a centre of individuality. We are told that the soul is conscious of its glory and the greatness of immortality. It feels that God is at work in the cosmic drama, where the divine consciousness plays and acts the liberated individual also plays in the same drama with full possession of the truth. There is nothing which does not bend to his purposes “He maketh the winds His angels and the flaming fires His ministers”

In this book, the conception of liberation or release has been mainly dealt with according to the opinions of AdvaitaVedanta School as maintained by Shankara, Padmapada, Vimuktatman, Chitsukha Charya Madhusudana Sarasvati, Suresvaracharya, VidyAranya-Muni, Mandana Mishra, and others. Besides this, the opinions of the authors of Sarnkhepashflrfraka, Siddhdntalesh3c’mgraha, Yogavasistha-Ratnayaria together with the views of the Kashmere School of Saivism have also been discussed.

Three Appendices have been added to this book and the subject of “Ajnana in Advaita-Vedanta” has been discussed in the third Appendix to make the discussion of the book explicit.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
