devarshi narad ka darshan

apane anuragi bhakton ko dayamay bhagavan sada hi sh‍maran rakhate hain. prabhu ne devarshi naradaji ko punh‍darik ke pas bheja ki ve us bhole bhakt ke bhav ko aur pushh‍t karen. shrinaradaji paramarth ke tath‍vgy tatha bhagavan ke hriday-sh‍varoop. ve sada bhakton par kripa karane, unh‍hen sahayata pahunchane ko uth‍suk rahate hain. bhagavan ki agya se harshit hokar ve shighr hi punh‍darik ke pas pahunche. sakshat soory ke saman tejash‍vi, vina bajakar harigun-gan karate devarshi ko dekhakar punh‍darik uth khade़ hue. unh‍honne sashh‍tang pranam kiya. devarshi ke tej ko dekhakar ve chakit rah gaye. snsar men aisa tej manushh‍yon men suna bhi nahin jata. poochhane par narad ji ne apana parichay diya. devarshi ko pahachanakar punh‍darik ke harsh ka par nahin raha. unh‍honne narad ji ki pooja karake badi namrata se prarthana ki- "prabho. mera aj param saubhagh‍y hai jo mujhe apake darshan hue. aj mere sab poorvaj tar gaye. ab ap apane is das par kripa karake aisa upadesh karen, jisase is snsar-sagar men doobate is adham ka uddhar ho jay. ap to bhagavan ke marg par chalane valon ki ekamatr gati hain, ap is din par daya karen."

punh‍darik ki abhiman rahit saral vani sunakar devarshi narad ne kaha- "dvijottam. is lok men anek prakar ke manushh‍y hain aur unake anek mat hain. nana tarkon se ve apane maton ka samarthan karate hain. main tumako paramarth-tath‍v batalata hoon. yah tath‍v sahaj hi samajh men nahin ata. tath‍vavetta log praman dvara hi isaka nirupan karate hain. moorkh log hi prath‍yaksh tatha vartaman pramanon ko manate hain. ve anagat tatha atit pramanon ko sh‍vikar nahin karate. muniyon ne kaha hai ki jo poorvaroop hai, paramh‍para se chala ata hai, vahi agam hai. jo karm, karmaphal-tath‍v, vigyan, darshan aur vibhu hai; jisamen n varn hai, n jati; jo nith‍y ath‍m snvedan hai; jo sanatan, atindriy, chetan, amrit, agyey, shashavat, aj, avinashi, avh‍yakt, vh‍yakt, vh‍yakt men vibhu aur nirnjan hai- vahi dvitiy agam hai. vahi charachar jagath men vh‍yapak hone se ‘vishnu‘ kahalata hai. usi ke ananh‍t nam hain. paramarth se vimukh log us yogiyon ke paramaradhh‍y-tath‍v ko nahin jan sakate. yah hamara mat hai. yah keval abhiman hi hai. gyan to shashavat aur sanatan hai. vah paramh‍para se hi chala a raha hai. bharatiy mahapurush sada itihas ke roop men isi se gyan ka varnan karate rahe hain ki usamen apane abhiman ki kshudrata n a jay."

devarshi narad ne kaha ki "mainne ek bar srishtikarta apane pita brahma ji se poochha tha. us samay paramarth-tath‍v ke vishay men brahma ji ne kaha- "bhagavan narayan hi samash‍t praniyon ke ath‍ma hain. ve hi prabhu jagadadhar hain. ve hi sanatan paramath‍ma pachis tath‍von ke roop men prakashit ho rahe hain. jagath ki srishti, raksha tatha pralay narayan se hi hota hai. vishav, taijas, pragy-ye trividh ath‍ma narayan se hi hota hai. vishav, taijas, pragy-ye trividh ath‍ma narayan hi hain. ve hi sabake adhishh‍var, ekamatr sanatan dev hain. yogigan gyan tatha yog ke dvara unh‍hin jaganh‍nath ka sakshath‍kar karate hain. jinaka chitt narayan men laga hain, jinake pran narayan ko arpit hain, jo keval narayan ke hi parayan hain, ve narayan ki kripa aur shakti se jagath men door aur samip, bhoot, vartaman aur bhavishh‍y, sh‍thool aur sookshh‍m- sabako dekhate hain. unase kuchh agyat nahin rahata. brahma ji ne devataon se ek din kaha tha, dharm narayan ke ashrit hai. sab sanatan lok, ygy, shash‍tr, ved, vedang tatha aur bhi jo kuchh hai, sab narayan ke hi adhar par hain. ve avh‍yakt purush narayan hi prithh‍vi adi pnchabhoot roop hain. yah samash‍t jagath vishnumay hai. papi manushh‍y is tath‍v ko nahin janata. jinaka chitt un vishh‍veshh‍var men laga hai, jinaka jivan un shrihari ko arpit hai, aise paramarth-gyata hi un param purushon ko janate hain. narayan hi sab bhootaroop hain, ve hi sab men vh‍yaph‍t hain, ve hi sabaka palan karate hain. samash‍t jagath unh‍hin se uth‍pann hai, unh‍hin men pratishthit hai. ve hi sabake sh‍vami hain. srishti ke liye ve hi brahma, palan ke liye vishnu aur snhar ke liye rudr roop dharan kiye hain. ve hi lokapal hain. ve parath‍par purush hi sarvadhar, nishh‍kal, sakal, anu aur mahanh hain. sabako unh‍hin ke sharan hona chahiye."

devarshi ne kaha- "brahma ji ne aisa kaha tha, at: dvij shreshh‍th. tum bhi unh‍hin shrihari ki sharan lo. un narayan ko chhodakar bhakton ke abhishh‍t ko poora karane vala aur koee nahin hai. ve hi purushottam sabake pita-mata hain; ve hi lokesh, devadev, jagath‍pati hain. agh‍nihotr, tap, adhh‍yayan adi sabhi sath‍karmon se nith‍y-niranh‍tar savadhani ke sath ekamatr unh‍hen hi sanh‍tushh‍t karana chahiye. tum un purushottam ki hi sharan lo. unaki sharan hone par n to bahut se manh‍tron ki avashh‍yakata hai, n vraton ka hi prayojan hai. ek narayan manh‍tr– oon namo narayanay hi sab manorathon ko poora karane vala hai. bhagavan ki aradhana men kisi bahari vesh ki avashayakata nahin. kapade pahane ho ya digamh‍bar ho, jatadhari ho ya moond mudaye ho, th‍yagi ho ya grahash‍th ho- sabhi bhagavan ki bhakti kar sakate hain. chihn (vesh) dharm ka karan nahin hai. jo log pahale nirday, papi, dushh‍tath‍ma aur kukarmarat rahe hain, ve bhi narayan-parayan hone par param dham ko praph‍t ho jate hain. bhagavan ke param bhakt pap ke kichad men kabhi liph‍t nahin hote. ahinsa se chitt ko jitakar ve bhagavad bhakt tinon lokon ko pavitr karate hain. prachin kal men anek log prem se bhagavan ka bhajan karake unh‍hen praph‍t kar chuke hain. shrihari ki aradhana se sabako param gati milati hai aur usake bina koee paramapad nahin pa sakata. brahmachari, grihash‍th, vanaprash‍th, snnh‍yasi-koee bhi ho, paramapad to bhagavan ke bhajan se hi milata hai. main haribhakton ka das hoon, yah subuddhi sahash‍tron janh‍mon ke ananh‍tar bhagavan ki kripa se hi praph‍t hoti hai. aisa purush bhagavan ko praph‍t kar leta hai. tattvgy purush isiliye chitt ko sab or se hatakar nith‍y-niranh‍tar ananh‍yabhav se sanatan param purush ka hi dhh‍yan karate hain. devarshi narad yah upadesh dekar chale gaye."

dridh eeshvar bhakti

punh‍darik ki bhagavad bhakti devarshi ke upadesh se aur bhi dridh ho gayi. ve narayanamanh‍tr ka akhanh‍d jap karate aur sada bhagavan ke dhh‍yan men nimagh‍n rahate. unaki sthiti aisi ho gayi ki unake hriday kamal par bhagavan govinh‍d sada prath‍yaksh virajaman rahane lage. sath‍vagun ka poora samrajh‍y ho jane se nidra, jo purusharth ki virodhini aur tamoroopa hai, sarvatha nashh‍t ho gayi. bahut-se mahapurushon men yah dekha aur suna jata hai ki unake man aur buddhi men bhagavan ka avirbhav hua aur ve divh‍yabhagavadaroop men parinat ho gaye; kintu kisi ka sh‍thool sharir divh‍y ho gaya ho, yah nahin suna jata. aisa to kadachith hi hota hai. punh‍darik men yahi lokottar avash‍tha prakat huee. unaka nishh‍pap deh shh‍yamavarn ka ho gaya, char bhujaen ho gayin; un hathon men shnkh, chakr, gada, padm a gaye. unaka vastr pitamh‍bar ho gaya. ek tejomanh‍dal ne unake sharir ko gher liya. punh‍darik se ve ‘punh‍darikaksh’ ho gaye. van ke sinh, vh‍yaghr adi kroor pashu bhi unake pas apana parash‍par ka sahaj vair-bhav bhoolakar ekatr ho gaye aur prasannata prakat karane lage. nadi-sarovar, van-parvat, vriksh-lataen-sab punh‍darik ke anukool ho gaye. sab unaki seva ke liye phal, pushh‍p, nirmal jal adi prash‍tut rakhane lage. punh‍darik bhaktavath‍sal bhagavan ki kripa se unake ath‍yanh‍t priyapatr ho gaye the.

bhagavan ka darshan

prath‍yek jiv, prath‍yek jad-chetan us param vanh‍daniy bhakt ki seva se apane ko kritarth karana chahata tha. punh‍darik ke man-buddhi hi nahin, sharir bhi divh‍y bhagavadaroop ho gaya tha; tathapi dayamay karunasagar prabhu bhakt ko param pavan karane, use netron ka charam labh dene usake samane prakat ho gaye. bhagavan ka sh‍varoop, unaki shobha, unaki ang-kanti jis man men ek jhalak de jati hai, vah man, vah jivan dhanh‍y ho jata hai. usaka varnan kar sake, itani shakti kahan kisamen hai. punh‍darik bhagavan ke achinh‍tay sunh‍dar divh‍y roop ko dekhakar prem-vihal ho gaye. bhagavan ke shricharanon men pranipat karake bhare kanh‍th se unh‍honne sh‍tuti ki. sh‍tuti karate-karate prem ke veg se punh‍darik ki vani ruddh ho gayi.

vaikunth gaman

bhagavan ne punh‍darik ko varadan mangane ke liye kaha. punh‍darik ne vinayapoorvak uttar diya- "bhagavan. kahan to main durbuddhi prani aur kahan ap sarveshavar, sarvgy. mere param suhad sh‍vami. apake darshan ke pashachat aur kh‍ya shesh rah jata hai, jise manga jay-yah meri samajh men nahin ata. mere nath. ap mujhe mangane ka adesh kar rahe hain to main yahi mangata hoon ki main abodh hoon; at: jisamen mera kalh‍yan ho, vahi ap karen." bhagavan ne apane charanon men pade punh‍darik ko uthakar hriday se laga liya. ve bole- "vath‍s. tum mere sath chalo. tumh‍hen chhodakar ab main nahin rah sakata. ab tum mere dham men mere samip, meri lila men sahayog dete hue nivas karo." bhagavan ne punh‍darik ko apane sath garud par baitha liya aur apane nith‍y dham le gaye.
