Low importance to ethical values in current society is causing huge pain to all of us in many ways, be it as numerous painful diseases, stressful life and many more. We are now slowly realising the need to follow values in every decision that impact our lifestyle. But there are many people who are already suffering due to the bad decisions of the past in terms of lifestyle, food habits or other unknown reasons. It can be people suffering from cancerous and other deadly diseases, or a lost loved one, or an emotional turmoil in a relation. How can they overcome the pain? Is there any SINGLE solution in scriptures that can relieve them from the adverse agony?

సర్వ ధర్మాన్ పరిత్యజ్య మామేకం శరణం వ్రజ |

అహం త్వా సర్వ పాపేభ్యొ మోక్షయిష్యామి మాశుచ: ||

सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज |
अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुच: ||

When we do an activity, be it as small as waking up in the morning to as complicated as performing a surgery or designing a space machine – there are multiple levels at which the activity is carried out – the physical level, the sensory level, the intellectual level and finally the I-level (self)! All these levels exist as one unit because of a certain mechanism that God has established in shaping us the way we are. Now, all we need to do is: remember this fact with gratitude and perform the activity. You will have now sanctified the activity. He will then own the responsibility of alleviating us from the results of all the past actions that were done in ignorance. All the pain and agony that one is suffering is a result of such bad karma from the past.

What more can we expect from God if he is ready to take it all away from you!? This is the MEDICINE for ALL pain. This is the Single Solid Solution provided as essence of all scriptures by Lord Sri Krushna himself in Bhagavad Gita! That is why, when you begin performing activities in this manner, you will automatically feel less burdened and more peaceful!

Nammalwar, author of 1102 pasurams (songs) in honour of God reveals these secrets in a very charming and heart-touching way. In the 94th pasuram, he talks about how to travel in unison with manas, heart. He convinces his manas to listen to him. This is what he tells his manas:

Oh! dear manas, I used to think that I was the owner of the body and I am the doer of all activities. But, God showed me His beautiful form and made me realise that I am not the doer. He made me realise that I am not independent, and my power is limited to what He gives me. I understand that he is the sole saviour. So, listen to me and abide by this along with me so we both are happy living in truth rather than acting in ignorance.

He will then make sure that:

  • we don’t do things that harm us in future
  • we don’t rely on any other sources for help than Him
  • we don’t crave for any other benefits than Him
  • we don’t go away from Him thinking that we are unworthy of Him
  • all our past bad karma is wiped off

That is how He stands guard of us because we now let Him take control. He came running to us in the form of deity to this world behind us, just like a mother would jump off into a well for her drowning child! Don’t miss the opportunity of accepting His grace. Rest in the arms of God and LIVE happily!
