Dada Bhagwan Foundation
The entire worldly life and its interactions are in the form of discharge (galan) and it is scientific circumstantial evidences (vyavasthit shakti). All five senses are subject to unfolding karma effect (udayadhin). What causes bondage of karma? The very belief, ‘I am Chandubhai’, is the root cause of bondage of karma. One only has to understand the facts. This is a science. In this book, Param Pujya Dadashri has explained the five senses and their individual functions. The mind (mun), intellect (buddhi), chit (vision and knowledge), and the ego (ahamkar) are all in their individual functions (dharma). Then who has failed to remain in its own function? The Self has. The function of the Self is to ‘see’, to ‘know’, and to remain in the absolute blissful state. Every living being is flowing forward in the current of life. No one is a doer here. The doer that appears to be the doer is an evidentiary (nimit, instrumental) doer, not an independent doer. If one were an independent doer, one would be in permanent captivity (bondage). The evidentiary doer can never be made captive. The world naturally goes on as a result of forces of natural circumstances. Only the wrong belief, ‘I did it’, arises in this! because of this wrong belief of doership the seed of karma for the next life is sown! In the given compilation, Param Pujya Dadashri’s discourse is presented on topics such as the science of karmas, doership, five senses, the ego, basic nature of people (prakruti), humility towards Gnanis, repentance of sins, penance, etc. Such understanding will help spiritual seekers to gain knowledge of the Self and how to peacefully interact in the existing worldly life.
