Once King Abhaya asked Sage Anidra,” O Holy Master! Kindly guide me on how can I increase more Sattva in my life, as it is said that increased Sattva is the key to Self-realization?”
Sage Anidra spoke,” Abhaya, Self-realization is an ambiguous and self-centered journey with many confusions and obstacles. It can even delude you that you have reached your goal without actually achieving it.
Abhaya, strive to become one with God. Let your devotion mature into oneness. In oneness, you dissolve in God, as the sugar dissolves in water by giving itself to water. Oneness is not a realization; it is giving oneself. The merger of a river into an Ocean is not a realization. The river gives itself to Ocean. Whatever the river has carried in its journey, pure or impure, clean or polluted, it gives itself to Ocean in totality. In oneness, all three Gunas lose their distinguishing attributes as they also merge into oneness. In oneness, all that remains is one God.
So, Abhaya, don’t aim to increase Sattva for Self-realization. Instead, increase Sattva in your life to live a better and useful life. In its journey, a river is more useful if it remains clean.
However, be careful, Abhaya, as you develop a liking for Sattva, don’t develop an aversion for Rajas and Tamas. Aversion is the biggest hindrance to Self-realization and oneness., A river has no aversion. It accepts all and continues to flow toward oneness. Instead of increasing Sattva, purify all Gunas. All three Gunas have their purposes and are essential. In my view, Rajas and Tamas are of even greater importance as they support Sattva.”
Hearing this, Abhaya reacted with a stunned expression on his face. He wondered how Tamas and Rajas could support Satva? How could he purify the Gunas, especially the Tamas? He wondered how he could become like a flowing river and merge into the Ocean?
Seeing that Abhaya’s mind had become distracted, Sage Anidra became silent. Abhaya knew he would have to wait to receive more answers.
Sage Anidra played a song on his flute which meant:
O, noblemen! I wonder sometimes
Whether Rama is me or I am Rama
Then I smile at my silliness.
What can I do! Love is silly.
Rama is the highest.
He is the smallest
In between, it is all Rama.
Only Rama! I repeat again and again.
When the mind thinks of only Rama
When tongue sings only Rama
When ears hear only Rama
Then Rama sits in your eyes.
With his grace The whole panorama becomes Rama. Blissful always I remain in Rama as Rama.
