Significance of Apara Ekadashi

Apara Ekadashi fast will be observed on 1st June, 2016 i.e Krishna Paksha of Jyeshtha month (which falls in june of Hindu calendar) This fast is believed to give auspicious and divine results. It also frees you from all kinds of sins. By observing this fast, a person becomes rich and wealthy. Such a person is also appreciated and receives fame…

According to the Hindu Scriptures, a person gets the same merits by observing Apara Ekadashi fast as he receives by taking a bath in the Ganges during the Kartik month. The importance of Apara ekadashi is the same as taking a bath in holy river Gomti, visiting Sri Kedarnath, staying in Badri Ashram or taking a holy dip in Kurukshetra during the solar eclipse.

The merits which one gets by observing Apara ekadashi fast are equivalent to those blessed by Yajnas or donating horses, elephants, gold etc. Even donating cows gives the same merits as fasting on Apara ekadashi. Apara ekadashi fast is a ray of light amidst the darkness of your sins. Therefore, a person observing this fast is blessed in life..

 Story Behind Apara Ekadashi 

A story has been mentioned about Apara Ekadashi in the religious scriptures. According to this story, there was a King named Mahidhwaj. His younger brother, Bajradhwaj, was not religious and was cunning. Bajradhwaj did not like his elder brother and was jealous of him. One night, he killed the King and buried his body beneath a Pipal tree..
The spirit of the King started residing on the Pipal tree.  The people in the surrounding places were terrified of this. One day, a saint named Dhaumya was passing by and talked to the restless spirit. He preached the spirit by his wisdom talk  and the spirit got down from the tree. The saint asked the King’s spirit to observe a fast on Apara Ekadashi in order to rest in peace. Hence, the King fasted and  as a result, attained liberation…

Niskama Karma(Selfless deeds)

Shrimad Bhagvad Gita is more concerned with the right approach to the performance of karma rather than running away from karma. The right approach cons ists of two important aspects:

1. Sankalp(संकल्प ) sanyasa or abdication of motives.

2. Tyaga (त्याग )or offering of the results at the feet of God.

This way of doing karma (deeds) is known as niskamakarma (selfless deeds) or nivrittikarma . Shrimad Bhagvad Gita declares that one should concern oneself with the duties to be performed but not with the results that may occur. ‘Result should not be the motive of any deeds’ Shrimad Bhagvad Gita says. Eligibility of an person is to  be decided on the way of performing deeds as described by Scriptures not by person’s interest in result of work. This approach is expressed in Shrimad Bhagvad Gita by the expressions like ‘sangam tyaktva’, ‘asaktah’, ‘kamasankalpavarjita’ etc. Activity undertaken with such a frame of mind is known as niskamakarma or nivrittikarma. Such an attitude is possible only, if one understands his role in the activity correctly.

 There are basicly five factors underlying each activity according to Shrimad Bhagvad Gita.

These are:

1. Adhisthana (अधिष्ठान ) i.e., the place, the object with reference to which an activity is initiated.

2. Karta (करता ) ( i.e.,  the Jiva who is only a dependent agent.

3. Karana (कारण) i.e., the instruments i.e. Indriyas etc.

4. Vividha chesta (विविध चेस्टा) i.e. the various actions of these that are necessary for the production of results.

5. Daiva (देवा) i.e. the supreme God who is behind all these as director and regulator. One who knows this will easily realize his limited role and will be able to undertake niskamakarma.

Engaging oneself in such a nivrttikarma, one has to dedicate the results of his activity at the feet of God. This is tyaga, Gita declares it more than once. ‘Mayi servanikarmani sammyasya’ ‘[Yat karosi yad asnasi’ etc. several statements make it clear that the fulfillment of work is in the dedication of it to the God. Work is worship is the motto of Gita. ‘Svakarmanatam abhyaechya Siddhim Vindati manavah’.

Pilgrimage- Heart of Hinduism — Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

vlcsnap-2015-06-19-16h49m08s231Pilgrimage is the heart of Hinduism.Pilgrimage is a sacred journey. It is a process that is not meant to simply get away from it all, but to allow oneself to encounter, see, and experience the Divine. This is accomplished by associating with holy people, visiting the holy places where the pastimes of the Divine have taken place, and where the sacred temples allow darshhan: the Vision of the Supreme. Darshan is the process of approaching the Deity in the Temple in a state of spiritual communication, open and ready to receive sacred revalations. It means to see the Absolute Reality, and also to be seen by that Supreme Reality, God.

Pilgrimage means living very simply, and going toward what is holy and most sacred, and remaining focused on the opportunity of having a life-changing experience. In this way we will undergo voluntary austerities for purification to relieve ourselves of lifetimes of karma. This process will help change our consciousness and our perception of our spiritual identity and how we fit into this world, and help us gain access to the spiritual dimension through enlightenment.

There are several reasons why many people go on pilgrimage tours of the holy sites and temples of India. One, of course, is to dovetail our interest in travelling and seeing foreign lands into a way of acquiring spiritual merit. Most everyone likes to travel and see new countries and sights and inspiring places, and some of the most stimulating places are those of spiritual importance where historical events or miracles have taken place, or where significant spiritual incidents have happened as described in various spiritual texts and epics, such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata, etc.

One of the most important reasons for going on pilgrimage tours and seeing the places of spiritual importance is to meet other saintly people who follow a spiritual path and see how they live. This is especially the case with saints and sages who can help us by giving their association and sharing their spiritual knowledge and realizations. This is of prime importance for us in order to align our lives in a similar manner so we can also make spiritual progress.

Also, by studying in such spiritually vibrant holy places, even for short periods of time, or by taking bath in the spiritually powerful rivers, such experiences will purify and enliven us and give us a deeper understanding of how to live a spiritual lifestyle. Tours like this can give us an everlasting impression that will inspire us for years to come, maybe even for the rest of our lives. Such an opportunity may not happen often, even after many lifetimes, so if such a possibility does come into our lives, we should seriously take advantage of it.

When you are travelling in harmony with the Divine, it is not unlikely that you will experience spontaneous help from others when you may need it. This has happened to me in many ways and many times. In such a state of consciousness, seeming obstacles will quickly disappear. However, other challenges may be there to test our sincerity, but usually it is nothing so great that prevents us from reaching our goal, unless we have some serious karma to work out. It is divine guidance that assists us in our mission and prepares us for higher and higher levels of spiritual perception. Perceiving this assistance is another form of experiencing the Divine and the spiritual progress that we are making.

The objective of pilgrimage takes on more meaning when we realize the purpose of life. Life is meant for becoming free from the materialistic world which means the continuous cycle of birth and death. It is for making spiritual advancement and to perceive our real identity.

In religion and spirituality, a pilgrimage is a long journey or search of great moral significance. Sometimes, it is a journey to a sacred place or shrine of importance to a naat faith. Members of every major religion participate in pilgrimages. A person who makes such a journey is called a pilgrim.
