NARADA BAKTI SUTRAM – TAMIL UPANYASAM – FEB-07-2020 : Episode 19
Om Namasivaya Nama:
Narada Bakthi Suthram – Chapter 03 – BakthisAdhanAni:
Kama-Krodha-Moha-Smruthibrahmsa Bhudhinaasa Sarvanaasa Kaaranathwaath!
Kama = Sensual Pleasures, Krodha = Anger, Moha = Delusion, Smruthi-Bramhmsa = Loss of memory, Bhudhinaasa = Loss of intellect, Sarvanaasa = Utter ruin, Kaaranathwaath = It is the Cause.
Meaning: In fact, the Dursangam can prompt all types of bad qualities in human beings therefore it should be shunned without showing mercy. When a person thinks of sensual pleasures his/her mind will rush to achieve that, whereas, when he/she think of me (God) the devotee will reach to me. All great Rishis including Lord Krishna has recommended this to aspirants. As we know losing purity of anything is quick therefore, to protect that we will have to defend so many attackers produced by natural Maya.
Tharangayitha Apeeme Sangaath Samudraayanthe!
Tharangayitha = Just like waves of a sea, Apeeme = Though it may look like small waves, Sangaath = The company of ruined, Samudraayanthe = Finally it will become like an ocean. Meaning: Though these bad qualities, initially look like a small wave, but due to the bad company these small bad qualities will become like ocean dirt in our life. Therefore, the aspirant must be carefully chosen and accept things in life. Pleasure seeking habits are our inherited properties, therefore, controlling them is the main task of Sadhana (spiritual practice). Deva Rishi Narada is warming the aspirants that simply avoid bad company to protect oneself, based on his experience he says no one is exempted or immune to the threat of Kama Pasam (Sensual Thread).
