As we pass the adversities of 2018, may I congratulate you all for the strength you displaced in the face of unforeseen challenges. I would like to offer
Swamiji’s unique and great vision about temples has taken form as Navaneetha Bhagavatha Krishna Kshetram in Bhagavatha Gramam.
A temple must be the back bone of ‘Sanathana Dharmam’ where a child gets initiated into the Dharmik way of life through the study of Scriptural wisdom.
Human life, according to Hinduism, has four goals called ‘Purusharthas’ namely Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.
You must observe Dharma(righteousness) in acquiring Artha(wealth in various forms) and fulfilling your Kama(your desires) for getting the final goal of Moksha(liberation or God Realization).
A temple gives guidelines in living your life to fulfill the four Purusharthas.
Navaneetha Bhagavatha Krishna temple conceptualizes these Purusharthas and it is the only temple in India and possibly in the world to teach the Sanathana Dharma way of life through the ‘Deity Gurus’ here.
We know that Hinduism follows One Supreme God, the omnipresent and most auspicious Consciousness or ‘Bodham’ and all Avathars mentioned in our Scriptures are in fact our Gurus who impart precious wisdom in various dimensions.
So, our temple represents this way of living life through acquiring wisdom on Purusharthas and applying in life so that our life is of a sacred purpose.
Dharma is iconized through the ‘vigraha’ of ‘Dharma Shasthavu’, Artha through ‘Devi’ and Kama through ‘Ganapathi’ and Moksha through ‘Adi Shankara’.
When you meditate in front of Dharma Shasthavu, you imbibe the righteousness of thought, word and deed into your mind.
When you meditate before Devi, you are getting receptive to Dharmik wealth in abundance. We must understand that wealth is not limited to money or possessions. Your ‘Icha Shakthi’, ‘Jnana Shakthi’ and ‘Kriya Shakthi’ are your greatest wealth. Without desire you wouldn’t attempt on any new thing or project. Without knowledge you cannot do it correctly. And without power of action your cannot materialize it into reality. Goddess Devi blesses you with Artha needed for your successful life.
When you meditate before Ganapathi you are surrendering all your Dharmik desires to get fulfilled through the abundance in your life. Vighneswara is the Lord who removes all obstacles from your path to success.
As long as you are stuck on your various desires your mind will not be liberated from cravings and worry or even greed and jealousy.
Some desires are asurik in nature, that is, they lead either to more and more of cravings or disappointments, regret and anger. However, Sathwik desires give joy and satisfaction to yourself and others around you.
Dharma in your thoughts channelizes your mind to higher aims. It helps you to drop lower desires and replace them with higher purposes in life.
Dharma and Artha together fulfill your Kama and gradually you reach a stage of contentment. When your desires are transcended instead of suppressing, you reach a natural and genuine gratification.
As you advance through years, you realize that you have lived a complete life, giving justice to your personal life, career and social life.
You shift from a ‘receiving side’ to a ‘giving side’ and your care for the world becomes sincere and genuine. This sharing and caring attitude is the foundation of spiritual life, which brings honour and love from all.
Whatever be your age, your mind has reached ‘Moha Kshayam ithi Moksham’ which is possible only by the Grace of your Guru who guides you like Sri Adi Shankara.
You are now a blessing to the world, as you have become an instrument of the Lord.
The scriptural wisdom of Bhagavatham melts your mind like Navaneetham (butter) and you have dissolved in Him.
Such a mind alone can experience or realize the Supreme Lord, iconized by Navaneetha Bhagavatha Krishna in this temple.
mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja
ahaṁ tvāṁ sarva-pāpebhyo
mokṣayiṣyāmi mā śucaḥ”
Sanathana Dharma is not promising you heaven after death, it is guaranteeing it here and now.
Come, join us and let us create and spread waves of wisdom to make life a celebration on Earth.
