    This Blog is an Humble attempt to spread the Divine Message of Pujjya BapuJi & Dedicated at the Lotus feets SHRI CHARANKAMAL Of PARAM PUJYA GURUJI SANT SHRI ASARAM JI BAPU VishwaGuru Of the Age.

    The essence of Bharata lies in Her culture of Self-realization. ParamAtman is not seen as something apart, but as our very essence, the one True Self that resides in the heart of us all. Raising ourselves from ordinary individuals to the heights of Supreme Consciousness is only possible with the guidance of one who is already in that transcendent state. Such a one is called a Satguru, a True Yogi, as in one who has gained mastery over the mind, one who is beyond the mind.

    From ancient times up to the present day, an unbroken succession of Self-realized Saints have incarnated in the Land of Yogis & Saints Bharata to lead seekers of Truth to the ultimate reality.

Lord Shiva and his worship

Tripura-Tapini-Upanishad

I praise that Supreme Truth which is Knowledge Absolute, which is to be known through the Vidya of the Tripura-Tapini-Upanishad.

The Lord assumed the form of destructive ferociousness and then He covered Himself all over the three worlds, Bhuh, Bhuvah and Svah. Then He had that power of the Adi-Sakti, i.e., the Adi-Sakti burst out from His heart. This is the Sakti called the Maya of Siva and She is understood by the fundamental syllable ‘Hrim’. The whole universe was then covered by this Sakti. Since She covered the three worlds or Tripuras, She has been styled as ‘Tripura’.

This Tripura Sakti has the following Vidya called Sri Vidya which can be derived from the following Vedic Mantras:

tatsaviturvareõyaü bhargo devasya dhãmahi | dhiyo yo naþ
pracodayàt | paro rajase sàvadom |
jàtavedase sunavàma somamaràtãyato nidahàti vedaþ |
sanaþ parùadati durgàõi vi÷và nàveva sindhuü duritàtyagniþ ||
tryaübakaü yajàmahe sugandhiü puùñivardhanam |
årvàrukamiva bandhanànmçtyormukùãya mà.amçtàt ||

This Vidya consisting of one hundred letters is the Supreme Vidya in its entirety. This is Paramesvari, Tripura Herself.

Out of the above Mantras, the first four stanzas deal with the exposition of the glory of the Para-Brahman. The second set of stanzas deals with the Mahima of Sakti. The third set deals with the glory of Siva Himself.

In this Vidya, all the worlds, all the Vedas, all the Sastras, all the Puranas and all the Dharmas have been dealt with and this is the Effulgence that has come out of the combination of Siva and Sakti.

Now, we shall comment on the most important and the hidden meanings of these verses. Here the great word ‘Tat’ means Para-Brahman Itself, the Eternity. This is the symbol used for that Lord who is beyond all definitions and arguments. This Lord is the embodiment of Supreme Knowledge itself. That is, He wishes to be in the form of Knowledge Absolute. He alone is the great Lord Siva who is always desired by sages, Yogins, etc., in Yajnas. Therefore there is the creation of desire.

Thus, this Lord who is beyond the reach of all desires, still desires and is being desired. He creates the alphabetical list of language. Therefore, the Lord is called ‘Kama’ or desire. The letter representing Kama is called ‘Ka’. Therefore the word ‘Tat’ represents the letter ‘Ka’. This is the meaning of the word ‘Tat’.

‘Savituh’ comes from the Sanskrit root-word ‘Sunj Praniprasave’, which means the Generator or producer of all beings. He is the great Power. Power means Sakti. This great Sakti or Devi called Tripura, is embodied in the Mahakundali (Yantra). Thus, the fire-globe (of the sun) should be known by the intelligent. This Sakti or power of Trikona (triangular figure) bears out the letter called ‘E’. Therefore we should learn the word ‘E’ from the word ‘Savituh’.

‘Varenyam’ means that which is fit to be adored and worshipped, which is the imperishable and the praiseworthy. Therefore, it should be understood that the letter ‘E’ should be taken from the word ‘Varenyam’. ‘Bhargo’ and ‘Dhimahi’ will be now commented upon. The letter ‘Dha’ means Dharana or concentration. The Lord is always concentrated upon by the ‘Dhi’ or the intellect or Buddhi. ‘Bharga’ is the Lord Himself who can be understood only by reaching the fourth stage or Avastha and this is the Being that pervades all and all. The letter representing this fourth stage is called ‘I’ and this is the real meaning of the above-mentioned words of the Mantra. We shall now talk of the word ‘Mahi’. ‘Mahi’ means greatness, idleness, strength, stubbornness, and this applies to that element which possesses all these qualities. That is the earth which is represented by the letter ‘La’. This is the Supreme state. Thus, this Lakara shows the quality of the earth in its being the embodiment of all oceans, forests, mountains and the seven islands. Therefore the form of Devi called the earth, is termed ‘Mahi’.

Now about ‘Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat’. Para or the Supreme is the Imperishable Siva Himself, the Eternal Soul. The underlying meaning here is this: We should meditate on the immobile form of Lakara or Jyotirlinga or Lord Siva which is the most supreme thing that ever exists anywhere. Here, there is no desire for any Dhyana whatsoever. It is beyond all Dhyanas. Therefore, we are requesting the Lord to direct our minds to be established in that Nirvikalpa State where there is no thinking at all. This request should not be made through the mouth. It should be simply thought of in the mind.

Then ‘Paro Rajase Savadom’. After meditating on the form of the Supreme Truth, there will come out a big effulgence, pure and blissful, full of knowledge which is residing inside the heart. This is the essence of all speech and Knowledge. This is the true Sakti. And this is called the Panchakshara, since it is the creator of the Pancha Bhutas or the five elements. This should be understood correctly by the intelligent.

This is the Vidya giving all desires to the devotee. Thus, after understanding in its true aspect, this Vidya of thirtytwo letters, the devotee Should think of the letter called ‘Ha’ which is the form of Siva, who is the Imperishable, pure State. The letter derived out of the combination of the sun and the moon, that is, the combination of Siva and Sakti is ‘Ha’ and it is also named as ‘Hamsa’. This is the seed of Kama. Through this Vidya, we can know the Supreme Lord Siva.

This combination is also understood as being the merging of the Jivatma in the Supreme Paramatman. Thus ‘Ha’ means the Eternal Stage or the Final Emancipation.

This is the derivation of the Sri Vidya. One who knows this, attains the form of Rudra. He bursts open the residence of Vishnu and reaches the Para-Brahman.

Then about the second Mantra. This Mantra glorifies the Mahima of Tripura Devi.

By the word ‘Jata’ Lord Siva is meant. He who gave birth to the first letters of the ‘Varna-Matrika’ of the form of the ‘Bindurupa’ of Omkara in the very beginning is called ‘Jata’. Or else, it may also be said that because He desired at the very beginning the fulfilment of His Kama, when He was just born, He is called ‘Jata’. The Knowledge of Devi Tripura should be thus carefully analysed in the same manner by dissecting the Mantra into its different words (according to Mantra-Sastra). Then all kinds of ‘Raksha’ or defence can be had from this Mantra. The first thing that is to be understood here is that ‘Jata’ is the One Lord, the Effulgent Being. This should be taken as the foundation of all Vidyas pertaining to Tripura. Here, it should also be understood that the letter ‘Sa’ refers to the power of Sakti and the letter ‘Somam’ refers to the State of Siva. Whosoever knows this becomes famous and important.

Thus, this Vidya where Devi Tripura resides at all times should be taken to be the basis of all Vidyas and the devotee should always be studying this Vidya and reciting it. This Vidya is the embodiment of the Powers of Siva and Sakti. This Vidya is called the limb of Sri Tripuramba Herself. The same Vidya, when used for meditating purposes, is called ‘Sarvatodhira’.

The Sri Vidya Chakra of Tripura is the King of all Chakras. This gives one, anything that he wants and this can be worshipped by anybody, without restriction. This Chakra is the gateway to Moksha, and Yogins after bursting the Brahman through this Vidya, attain that permanent Bliss. This Chakra is the house of Tripuradevi.

Then about the Mrityunjaya Anushtup Mantra. ‘Tryambakam’ (Trayanam Ambakam) means the ‘Lord of the three’ worlds. ‘Trayanam’ means ‘of the three’ worlds. ‘Ambakam’ is the Lord of it. ‘Yajamahe’ means ‘Sevamahe’ or do service. Besides this, the word ‘Mahe’ means ‘Mrityunjaya’ or the destroyer of death. Therefore, the word ‘Yajamahe’ is very important here.

The word ‘Sugandhim’ means ‘to derive fame from all quarters’. And the word ‘Pushtivardhanam’ means ‘one who creates all the worlds, preserves all the worlds, pervades all the worlds and gives salvation to all the worlds’.

‘Urvarukam’ means ‘cucumber’. ‘Urvarukamiva Bandhanan Mrityormukshiya Mamritat’. A cucumber is tied with a rope. Similarly the human being and other creatures are tied by the bonds of Samsara. Here, it means to deliver the earthly beings from the Mayaic bond to the Eternal Bliss, just as a cucumber is delivered free from the creeper.

A person who wants to conquer death should repeat the Mantra ‘Mrityunjaya’. etc. One who wishes to become Rudra, should make use of the Mantra ‘Om Namah’. Then he will certainly derive the best benefit out of it.

Then there is another Mantra. ‘Tad Vishnoh Paramam Padam’, etc. Vishnu is one who pervades all the universe. His supreme state which is just like the sky is called ‘Paramam Padam’. ‘Surayah’ means scholars or those intelligent who have understood the Reality, i.e., Brahma, etc. That Supreme State of Vishnu is lying or residing in each and every being. By ‘residing’, we mean ‘Vasati.’ Therefore, He is called ‘Vasudeva’. The powerful twelve letters of Sri Vasudeva ‘Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya’, are everything. They are sufficient to absolve one from all sins. The knower of this Mantra reaches that Brahma-Purusha who is in the form of the embodiment of the three letters A, U and M.

Then, we have got another powerful Mantra ‘Hamsa Suchishat’, etc. This is the great Mantra of the Sun-God. And the other Mantra which is to be known is ‘Gananam Tva’, etc. This is the Mantra of Ganapati. One who knows and repeats these Mantras that belong to Siva, Vishnu, Surya and Ganapati, will get the direct revelation of Devi Tripura.

In the Gayatri, there are four forms. In the morning, She is called Gayatri. In the noon, She is called Savitri. In the evening, She is called Sarasvati. She is always called Ajapa when She is having the fourth Pada with Her. This Devi is having the form of fifty alphabets from the letter ‘A’ to the letter ‘Ksha’. All the Sastras and the world are covered by the Devi in this form. Prostrations to Her again and again.

So, any devotee who worships Devi Tripura with these Mantras, becomes the true seer of the Reality. He then attains Moksha. This should be known correctly by everybody.

Now, we shall expound the Karmakanda of the Tripura-worship. This Sakti or the Adimaya directs the Supreme Brahman. That Brahman is Knowledge Absolute, and is termed Paramatman. This Supreme Being is the Hearer, Knower, Seer, Commander, Perceiver and the Supreme Purusha who resides in the Atman of all beings. This is to be known. There is no world, no non-world, no God, no non-God, no being, no non-being, no Brahmin and no non-Brahmin, at all. Thus shines the Nirvana called Para-Brahman.

The mind that is thinking of something, is called Baddha. That which does not think of anything is called Mukta. Then only this Brahman can be understood. Therefore, everybody should keep his mind free from thoughts of objects.

Until the mind is devoid of all thoughts, one should try to control the Pranas. This is the eternal knowledge. All other things are merely unnecessary scriptural descriptions. There is no difference between thinking and non-thinking in the Para-Brahman. All are same there. There is nothing to be thought of and there is nobody to think.

Thus finally, the devotee should understand gradually that Brahman is his own Self and then he will attain the Blissful Emancipation.

Now the Supreme Truth is revealed. There is no one who longs for liberation, there is no one who is liberated, there is no Vairagya, there is no Sadhana, there is no destruction.

There are two Brahmans, namely Sabda Brahman and Para Brahman. One who has mastered the Sabda Brahman, attain to the Para Brahman. After acquiring all the knowledge through books, the intelligent man should throw away those books, just like the husk thrown away by one who wants only the internal kernel of the grain.

Thus the Supreme Brahman-State is described. One who knows this Great Vidya should be worshipped by others. There is no doubt about it. This is the great Upanishad.
