मुक्त का मतलब है बंधनों से मुक्त होना और दुखों से मुक्त होना । दुखों से मुक्त…. आत्मसाक्षात्कार के बिना हुआ नहीं जाता । परमात्मा की प्राप्ति कहो, मुक्ति कहो एक ही बात है । मुक्ति भी पांच प्रकार की होती है – यहां से मर गये, स्वर्ग में चले गये, इसको स्वर्गीय मुक्ति कहते है । ठाकुरजी का भजन करके ठाकुरजी के देश में चले गये वो सायुज्य मुक्ति होती है । ठाकुरजी के नजदीक रहे तो सामीप्य मुक्ति । और नजदीक हो गये मंत्री की नाईं…….. सायुज्य मुक्ति, सामीप्य मुक्ति……. लेकिन वास्तविक में पूर्ण मुक्ति होती है कि जिसमें ठाकुरजी जिस आत्मा में, मैं रूप में जगे है उसमें अपने आप को जानना…. ये जीवनमुक्ति होती है …. जीते-जी यहां होती है । दूसरी मुक्ति मरने के बाद होती है …. स्वर्गीय मुक्ति, सालोक्य मुक्ति, सामीप्य मुक्ति, सायुज्य मुक्ति, सारूप्य मुक्ति । इष्ट के लोक में रहना सालोक्य मुक्ति है । उनका चपरासी अथवा द्वारपाल जितनी नजदीकी लाना सायुज्य मुक्ति है । सामीप्य मुक्ति …. उनका खास मंत्री अथवा भाई की बराबरी । जैसे रहते है राजा का भाई ऐसे हो जाना भक्ति से सारूप्य मुक्ति । इन मुक्तियों में द्वैत बना रहता है । ये अलग है, मैं अलग हूँ और ये खुश रहें । उनके जैसा सुख-सुविधा, अधिकार भोगना, ये सालोक्य, सामीप्य मुक्तियां है और पूर्ण मुक्ति है कि अपनी आत्मा की पूर्णता का साक्षात्कार करके यहीं……… पूर्ण गुरूकृपा मिली, पूर्ण गुरू के ज्ञान में अनंत ब्रह्माण्डव्यापी अपने चैतन्य स्वभाव से एकाकार होना…….. ये जीवनमुक्ति है, परममुक्ति है । मुक्तियों के पांच भेद है – यहां से मरकर स्वर्ग में गये, चलो मुक्त हो गये । वहां राग-द्वेष भी ज्यादा नहीं होता, और कम होता है लेकिन फिर भी इधर से तो बहुत अच्छा है । ….तो हो गये मुक्त । जैसे कर्जे से मुक्त हो गये, झगड़े से मुक्त हो गये । तलाक दे दिया, झंझट से मुक्त हो गये, ऐसी मुक्तियां तो बहुत है लेकिन पूर्ण परमात्मा को पाकर, बाहर से सुखी होने क बदले सत में, चित में, आनंद में स्थिति हो गई वो है पूर्ण मोक्ष……….. इसको जीवन्मुक्ति बोलते है, कैवल्यमुक्ति बोलते है ।
Question: आत्मस्वरूप निष्क्रिय, अव्यक्त और तृप्त होते हुए भी वृत्तियों से कैसे जुड़ जाता है ? आत्मा तो निष्क्रिय है, अव्यक्त है और तृप्त है, फिर वृत्तियों से कैसे जुड़ जाता है ? न जुड़े इसका कोई उपाय बताने की कृपा करो |
Answer: न जुड़े ऐसा उपाय मैं बता ही नही सकता हूँ क्योंकि आत्मा कभी जुड़ा ही नही है तो न जुड़े कैसा उपाय बताऊँ | आत्मा वृत्तियों से नही जुड़ता,तुम्हारा अंतःकरण का स्फुरण वृत्तियों से जुड़ता है | वो वृत्तियाँ ही वृत्तियों में घूम रही है| आत्मा सदा दृष्टा है, असंग है, अच्युत है, अपनी महिमा में ज्यों का त्यों है, आत्मा कभी किसीसे जुड़ा था अथवा जुड़ा है या जुड़ेगा, ऐसा हो नही सकता | जब-जब जुड़ा, जुड़ता है तो चित्त जुड़ता है,अंतःकरण जुड़ता है, भाव जुड़ता है और जुड़ते, टूटते, बदलते रहते हैं |
पिक्चर में हँसी का दृश्य आता है, कहीं चोरी का आता है, कहीं बदमाशी का आता है, कहीं साहूकारी का आता है, कहीं गुंडागर्दी का आता है, ये सारे दृश्य दर्शक के विनोद के लिए हैं | ऐसे ही चित्त में सब हो रहा है ऐसा चित्त की दशा को चित्त की दशा समझकर उससे अपना सबंध विच्छेद कर दे अथवा तो सत्वगुण बढ़ा ले, सात्विक खान-पान, सात्विक रहन-सहन तो चित्त सात्विक होगा तो सुखाकर वृति बनी रहेगी और फिर उस वृति से भी परे आत्मा की तृप्तता में टिक जाओगे |
Devuthi Ekadashi Mahima aur Pujan Vidhi ( देवउठी एकादशी महिमा )
The Supreme Personality of Godhead said, “If a person fasts on Ekadashi, I will burn up all his sins and bestow upon him My transcendental abode. The merit one attains by fasting on Ekadashi is greater than that achieved by observing any other kind of fast or by going to a place of pilgrimage, and even greater than that achieved by giving charity to brahmanas. I tell you most emphatically that this is true.” If a person strictly observes Ekadashi; I kill all his enemies and grant him the highest destination.
विश्व हिंदू परिषद के अंतरराष्ट्रीय संरक्षक अशोक सिंहल की निगाह में संत श्री आशारामजी बापू निर्दोष हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि हम उनको आज भी संत मानते हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि वह मीडिया में आसाराम बापू के ट्रायल का विरोध करते हैं। वीएचपी नेता ने कहा कि आने वाले समय में रेप का आरोप लगानी वाली महिलाओं का सच सामने आ जाएगा।

Sant Asaram Bapu – Beyond Fake Media, A Truth that`s not Known – Special Report [Must Watch]
Ek Jhut hokar Bhagwan se Prarthna karo.
The story of Haribodhini Ekadashi
from the Bhavisya-uttara Purana
God Brahma said to Narad Muni, “Dear son, 0 best of the sages, I shall narrate to you the glories of Haribodhini Ekadasi, which eradicates all kinds of sins and bestows great merit, and ultimately liberation, upon the wise persons who surrender unto the Supreme God.
“0 best of the Brdhmanas, the merits acquired by bathing in the Ganges remain significant only as long as Haribodhini Ekadasi does not come. This Ekadasi, which occurs during the light fortnight of the month of kartik, is much more purifying than a bath in the ocean, at a place of pilgrimage, or in a lake. This sacred Ekadasi is more powerful in nullifying sin than one thousand Asvamedha sacrifices and one hundred Rajasuya sacrifices.”
Narad Muni, the saint among the demigods, inquired, “0 father, please describe the relative merits of fasting completely on Ekadasi, eating supper [without grains or beans], or eating but once at midday [without grains or beans].”
God Brahma replied, “If a person eats once at midday on Ekadasi, the sins of his previous birth are erased, if he eats only supper, the sins acquired during his previous two births are removed, and if he fasts completely, the sins accumulated during his previous seven births are eradicated.
“0 sons, whatever is only rarely achieved within the three worlds are obtained by him who strictly observes Haribodhini Ekadasi. A person whose sins equal Mount Sumeru in volume sees them all reduced to nothing if he simply fasts on Papaharini Ekadasi [another name for Haribodhini Ekadasi].
The sins a person has accumulated over a thousand previous births are burned to ashes if he not only fasts but also remains awake throughout Ekadasi night, just as a mountain of cotton can be burned to ashes if one lights a small fire in it.
“0 best of sages, Naradji, a person who strictly observes this fast achieves the results I have mentioned. Even if one does a small amount of pious activity on this day, following the rules and regulations, one will earn merit equal to Mount Sumeru in volume; however, a person who does not follow the rules and regulations given in the scriptures may perform pious activity equal to Mount Sumeru in volume, but he will not earn even a small amount of merit.
One who does not chant the Gayatri Mantr three times a day, who disregards fast days, who does not believe in God, who criticizes the Vedic scriptures, who thinks the Vedas bring only ruination to one who follows their injunctions, who enjoy’s another’s wife, who is utterly foolish and wicked, who does not appreciate any service that has been rendered to him, or who cheats others-such a sinful person, 0 son, can never perform any religious activity effectively. Be he a Brahman or a Sudr, whoever tries to enjoy another man’s wife, particularly the wife of a twice-born person, is said to be no better than a dog-eater.’
“0 best of the sages, any Brahman who enjoys sex with a widow or a Brahman lady married to another man brings ruin to himself and his family. Any Brahman who enjoys illicit sex will have no children in his next life, and any past merit he may have earned is ruined. Indeed, if such a person displays any arrogance toward a twice-born Brahman or a spiritual master, he loses all his spiritual advancement immediately, as well as his wealth and children.
“These three kinds of men ruin their acquired merits: he whose character is immoral, he who has sex with the wife of a dog-eater, and he who appreciates the association of rogues. Whoever associates with sinful people and visits their homes without a spiritual purpose will go directly to the abode of God Yamaraj, the superintendent of death. And if someone eats in such a home, his acquired merit is destroyed, along with his fame, duration of life, children, and happiness.
“Any sinful rascal who insults a saintly person soon loses his religiosity, economic development, and sense gratification, and he at last burns in the fire of hell. Anyone who likes to offend saintly persons, or who does not interrupt someone who is insulting saintly persons, is considered no better than an ass. Such a wicked man sees his dynasty destroyed before his very eyes.
“A person whose character is unclean, who is a rogue or a swindler, or who always finds fault with others does not achieve a higher destination after death, even if he gives charity generously or performs other pious deeds. Therefore one should refrain from performing inauspicious acts and perform only pious ones, by which one will acquire merit and avoid suffering.
“However, the sins of one who, after due consideration, decides to fast on Haribodhini Ekadasi are erased from one hundred previous lives, and whoever fasts and remains awake overnight on this Ekadasi achieves unlimited merit and after death goes to the supreme abode of Shree Visnu, and ten thousand of his ancestors, relatives, and descendants also reach that abode. Even if one’s forefathers were implicated in many sins and are suffering in hell, they still attain beautifully ornamented spiritual bodies and happily go to Visnu’s abode.
“0 Narad, even one who has committed the heinous sin of killing a Brahman is freed of all stains on his character by fasting on Haribodhini Ekadasi and remaining awake that night.
The merit that cannot be won by bathing in all the places of pilgrimage, performing a horse sacrifice, or giving cows, gold, or fertile land in charity can easily be achieved by fasting on this holy day and remaining awake throughout the night.
“Anyone who observes Haribodhini Ekadasi is celebrated as highly qualified and makes his dynasty famous. As death is certain, so losing one’s wealth is also certain. Knowing this, 0 best of sages, one should observe a fast on this day so dear to Hari-Sri Haribodhini Ekadasi.
“All places of pilgrimage in the three worlds at once come to reside in the house of a person who fasts on this Ekadasi Therefore, to please the God, who holds a disc in His hand, one should give up all engagements, surrender, and observe this Ekadasi fast.
One who fasts on this Haribodhini day is acknowledged as a wise man, a true yogi, an ascetic, and one whose senses are truly under control. He alone enjoys this world properly, and he will certainly achieve liberation.
This Ekadasi is very dear to Shree Vishnu, and thus it is the very essence of religiosity. Even one observance of it bestows the topmost reward in all the three worlds. “0 Naradaji, whoever fasts on this Ekadasi will definitely not enter a womb again, and thus faithful devotees of the Supreme Godhead give up all varieties of religion and simply surrender to fasting on this Ekadasi.
For that great soul who honors this Ekadasi by fasting and remaining awake throughout the night, the Supreme God, Sri Govind, personally terminates the sinful reactions that soul has acquired by the actions of his mind, body, and words.
“0 son, for anyone who bathes in a place of pilgrimage, gives charity, chants the holy names of the Supreme God, undergoes austerities, and performs sacrifices for God on Haribodhini Ekadasi, the merit thus earned all becomes imperishable.
A devotee who worships Shree Madhav on this day with first-class paraphernalia becomes free from the great sins of a hundred lifetimes. A person who observes this fast and worships Shree Vishnu properly is freed from great danger.
“This Ekadasi fast pleases Shree Janardan so much that He takes the person who observes it back to His abode, and while going there the devotee illuminates the ten universal directions. Whoever desires beauty and happiness should try to honor Haribodhini Ekadasi, especially if it falls on Dvadasi.
The sins of one’s past hundred births, the sins committed during childhood, youth, and old age in all those lifetimes, whether those sins are dry or wet-are nullified by the Supreme God Govind if one fasts on Haribodhini Ekadasi with devotion.
“Haribodhini Ekadasi is the best Ekadasi Nothing is unobtainable or rare in this world for one who fasts on this day, for it gives food grains, great wealth, and high merit, as well as eradication of all sin, the terrible obstacle to liberation.
Fasting on this Ekadasi is a thousand times better than giving charity on the day of the solar or lunar eclipse. Again I say to you, 0 Naradaji, whatever merit is earned by one who bathes in a place of pilgrimage, gives charity, chants Jap, recites Vedic Mantras, performs sacrifices, and studies the Vedas is only one ten-millionth the merit earned by the person who fasts but once on Haribodhini Ekadasi.
Whatever merit one has acquired in his life by some pious activities becomes completely fruitless if one does not observe the Ekadasi fast and worship Shree Vishnu in the month of Kartik. Therefore, 0 Narad, you should always worship the Supreme God, Janardan, and render service to Him. Thus you will attain the desired goal, the highest perfection.
“On Haribodhini Ekadasi, a devotee of the God should not eat in another’s house or eat food cooked by a non devotee. If he does so, he achieves only the merit of fasting on a full moon day. Philosophical discussion of scriptures in the month of kartik pleases Sri Vishnu more than if one gives elephants and horses in charity or performs a costly sacrifice.
Whoever chants or hears descriptions of Shree Vishnu’s qualities and pastimes, even if but a half or even a fourth of a verse, attains the wonderful merit derived from giving away a hundred cows to a Brahman.
0 Narad, during the month of Kartik one should give up all kinds of ordinary duties and devote one’s full time and energy, especially while fasting, to discussing the transcendental pastimes of the Supreme God. Such glorification of Sri Hari on the day so dear to the God, Ekadasi, liberates a hundred previous generations. One who spends his time enjoying such discussions, especially in the month of Kartik, achieves the results of performing ten thousand fire sacrifices and burns all his sins to ashes.
“He, who hears the wonderful narrations concerning Shree Vishnu, particularly during the month of Kartik, automatically earns the same merit as that bestowed upon someone who donates a hundred cows in charity. 0 great sages, a person who chants the glories of Shree Hari on Ekadasi achieve the merit earned by donating seven islands.”
Narad Muni asked his glorious father, “0 universal sire, 0 best of all demigods, please tell me how to observe this most sacred Ekadasi, What kind of merit does it bestow upon the faithful?”
God Brahm replied, “0 sons, a person who wants to observe this Ekadasi should rise early on Ekadasi morning, during the Brahmamuhurt hour [an hour and a half before sunrise until fifty minutes before sunrise].
He should then clean his teeth and bathe in a lake, river, pond, or well, or in his own home, as the situation warrants. After worshiping Sri Kesav, he should listen carefully to the sacred descriptions of the God.
He should pray to the God thus: ‘0 Shree Kesav, I shall fast on this day, which is so dear to you, and tomorrow I shall honor your sacred Prasddam. 0 lotus-eyed God, 0 infallible one, you are my only shelter. Kindly protect me.’ “Having spoken this solemn prayer before the God with great love and devotion, one should fast cheerfully.
0 Narad, whoever remains awake all night on this Ekadasi, singing beautiful songs glorifying the God, dancing in ecstasy, playing delightful instrumental music for His transcendental pleasure, and reciting the pastimes of Shree Krsn as recorded in bona fide Vedic literatures such a person will most assuredly reside far beyond the three worlds, in the eternal, spiritual realm of God.
“On Haribodhini Ekadasi one should worship Sri Krsn with camphor, fruits, and aromatic flowers, especially the yellow agaru flower. One should not absorb oneself in making money on this important day. In other words, greed should be exchanged for charity. This is the process for turning loss into unlimited merit.
One should offer many kinds of fruits to the God and bathe Him with water from a conch shell. Each of these devotional practices, when performed on Haribodhini Ekadasi, is ten million times more beneficial than bathing in all the places of pilgrimage and giving all forms of charity.
“Even God Indr joins his palms and offers his obeisances to a devotee who worships Shree Janardan with first-class Agasty flowers on this day. The Supreme God Hari is very pleased when He is decorated with nice Agasty flowers.
0 Narad, I give liberation to one who devotedly worships Shree Krsn on this Ekadasi in the month of Kartik with leaves of the Bel tree. And for one who worships Shree Janardan with fresh Tulasi leaves and fragrant flowers during this month, 0 sons, I personally burn to ashes all the sins he has committed for ten thousand births.
“One who merely sees Tulasi Maharani, touches her, meditates on her, narrates her history, offers obeisances to her, prays to her for her grace, plants her, worships her, or waters her lives in the abode of Shree Hari eternally.
0 Narad, one who serves Tulasi-Devi in these nine ways achieves happiness in the higher world for as many thousands of Yugas as there are roots and sub roots growing from a mature Tulasi plant.
When a full-grown Tulasi plant produces seeds, many plants grow from those seeds and spread their branches, twigs, and flowers, and these flowers also produce numerous seeds. For as many thousands of kalpas as there are seeds produced in this way, the forefathers of one who serves tulasi in these nine ways will live in the abode of Shree Hari.
“Those who worship Shree Kesav with Kadamb flowers, which are very pleasing to Him, get His mercy and do not see the abode of Yamaraj, death personified. What is the use of worshiping someone else if all desires can be fulfilled by pleasing Shree Hari?
For example, a devotee who offers Him Bakul, Asok, and Patali flowers is freed from misery and distress for as long as the sun and moon exist in this universe, and at last he achieves liberation. 0 best of the Brdhmans, an offering of Kannera flowers to Shree Jagannath brings as much mercy upon the devotee as that earned by worshiping Shree Kesav for four Yugas.
One who offers Tulasi flowers [manjaris] to Sri Krsn during the month of Kartik receives more merit than can be obtained by donating ten million cows.’ Even a devotional offering of newly grown sprouts of grass brings with it a hundred times the benefit obtained by ordinary ritualistic worship of the Supreme God.
“One who worships Shree Visnu with the leaves of the Samik tree is freed from the clutches of Yamaraj, the god of death. One who worships Visnu during the rainy season with Campaka or jasmine flowers never returns to the planet earth again.
One who worships God with but a single Kumbhi flower achieves the boon of donating a Pala of gold [two hundred grams]. If a devotee offers a single yellow flower of the Ketaki, or wood-apple, tree to Shree Visnu, who rides on Garud, he is freed from the sins of ten million births.
Furthermore, one who offers Shree Jagannath flowers and also a hundred leaves anointed with red and yellow sandalwood paste will certainly come to reside in Svetadvip, far beyond the coverings of this material creation.
“0 greatest of Brdhmans, Sri Narad, after thus worshiping Shree Kesav, the bestower of all material and spiritual happiness, on Haribodhini Ekadasi, one should rise early the next day, bathe in a river, chant jap of Krsn’s holy names, and render loving devotional service to the God at home to the best of one’s ability.
To break the fast, the devotee should first offer some Prasadam to Brdhmans and only then, with their permission, eat some grains. Thereafter, to please the Supreme God, the devotee should worship his spiritual master, the purest of the God’s devotees, and offer him sumptuous food, nice cloth, gold, and cows, according to the devotee’s means. This will certainly please the Supreme God, the holder of the disc.
“Next the devotee should donate a cow to a Brdhmana, and if the devotee has neglected some rules and regulations of spiritual life, he should confess them before Brdhmana devotees of the God. Then the devotee should offer them some daksina [money]. 0 kings, those who have eaten supper on Ekadasi should feed a brahmana the next day. That is very pleasing to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
“0 sons, if a man has fasted without asking the permission of his priest, or if a woman has fasted without asking her husband’s permission, he or she should donate a bull to a Brahman Honey and yogurt are also proper gifts for a Brahman.
Someone who has eaten only fruits on Ekadasi should donate fruits the next day. One who has fasted from oil should give ghee in charity, one who has fasted from ghee should donate milk, one who has fasted from grains should donate rice, one who has slept on the floor should donate a bedstead with a quilt, one who has eaten on a leaf plate should donate a pot of ghee, one who has remained silent should donate a bell, and one who has fasted from sesame should give gold in charity and feed a Brahman couple with sumptuous food.
A man who wants to prevent baldness should donate a mirror to a Brahman one who has second-hand shoes should donate shoes, and one who has fasted from salt should donate some sugar to a Brahman During this month everyone should regularly offer a ghee lamp to Shree Visnu or to Srimati Tulasi-Devi in a temple.
“An Ekadasi fast is complete when one offers a qualified Brdhman a gold or copper pot filled with ghee and ghee wicks, along with eight water pots containing some gold and covered by cloths. One who cannot afford these gifts should at least offer a Brahman some sweet words. One who does so will surely attain the full benefit of fasting on Ekadasi.
“After offering his obeisances and begging permission, the devotee should eat his meal. On this Ekadasi Caturmas ends, so whatever one gave up during Caturmas should now be donated to Brdhmans. One who follows this process of Caturmas receives unlimited merit, 0 kings of kings, and goes to the abode of Shree Vasudev after death.
0 kings, anyone who observes the complete Caturmas without a break attains eternal happiness and does not receive another birth. But if someone breaks the fast, he becomes either a blind man or a leper.
“Thus I have narrated to you the complete process for observing Haribodhini Ekadasi. Someone who reads or hears about this Ekadasi achieves the merit earned by donating cows to a qualified Brahman.”
Thus ends the narration of the glories of Haribodhini Ekadashi,
From the Bhavishya-Uttar Puran.
