What Ramayana teaches us

Through the example of Lord Rama, Ramayana teaches us how not to falter from dharma even while facing the gravest challenges in life.

What is the concept of ahimsa?

Staying away from himsa is called ahimsa. To hurt someone or some being through deeds, words, or even thinking about hurting is himsa. Himsa is done due to greed, rage, or a false presumption that you are doing the right thing. Himsa is perpetrated by oneself or through someone else. Closing your eyes towards himsa when you have the power to interfere is also himsa. The gravity of himsa can be mild, medium, or intense. Staying away from all these twenty-seven types of himsa is ahimsa.

We often hear the term Sachidananda. Do you know what Sachidananda is? It's not very complicated. I will explain it to you. Sachidananda is made up of three terms: sat - chit - ananda. When the Bahubali movie was released, we all became very curious. So the first question is: Does a movie called Bahubali exist? The answer can be yes or no. If the answer is yes, then it means it has got satta or existence. This is Sat. Does a three-headed monkey exist? No. It doesn't have satta. This is Sat in Sachidananda. Now the second part: A friend told y....

We often hear the term Sachidananda. Do you know what Sachidananda is? It's not very complicated. I will explain it to you. Sachidananda is made up of three terms: sat - chit - ananda.

When the Bahubali movie was released, we all became very curious.

So the first question is: Does a movie called Bahubali exist? The answer can be yes or no. If the answer is yes, then it means it has got satta or existence. This is Sat. Does a three-headed monkey exist? No. It doesn't have satta. This is Sat in Sachidananda.

Now the second part:
A friend told you that a beautiful movie has been released, Bahubali. A newspaper ad informed you that a movie called Bahubali has been released. This is knowledge about the movie called Bahubali. This is knowledge about Bahubali - this is chit. Chit is knowledge or awareness. It is knowledge about the existence of Bahubali. Chit is knowledge about whatever has got satta. Something may exist, but you may not know about it. There are so many people who don't know that there is a movie called Bahubali. They lack the chit, knowledge or awareness, about this particular movie. They don't even know that it exists. Chit is the understanding or awareness of the existence of something, just about its existence or more in detail.

A lemon is sour. A lemon exists, and its sourness as a property also exists. Now you have knowledge about the existence of a lemon and its property called sourness.

Now the third part:
The moment you heard that there is a great movie called Bahubali, you became curious. You want to watch it. You have become eager to watch it. When you actually watch the movie, this thirst is quenched. This is ananda. Ananda is fulfillment. Until the time you watch Bahubali, there is a void inside you. When you watch the movie, the void is filled, fulfilled.

When you have self-realization, your curiosity about, and your thirst for, the absolute, the supreme, is quenched. This is paramananda. The ananda of watching Bahubali is a small ananda. Paramananda is the ultimate fulfillment when all your voids, all your shortcomings, all your curiosities, and all your desires are fulfilled. This happens only when you attain divinity.

The knowledge of everything is Parama jnana. The knowledge just about Bahubali is just some small jnana.

The existence of Bahubali is a small existence. The existence of the multitude of universes is the whole existence.

That's why it is said:
सत्ता चिदानन्द इति त्रिसत्यं सत्तैव विश्वं नु चिदेव विश्वम्।
विश्वं तथाऽऽनन्द इतो न किञ्चित् परं त्रयं चैतदभिन्नरूपम्।।

The universe is made up of these three. The universe is composed of these three aspects, and they are inseparable from each other.
