Compassion towards all living beings- Jeeva karunya Olukkam is the great philosophy, which was practiced by saint Vallalar in 19th century for eternal bliss and conquering Death- Mortality. This article is presented before the youngsters and people who have not known the great saint Sri Ramalinga Adigal- Arutperum Jodhi Andavar in such a way that how Compassion- The Great Penance conquers death and mortality.
Compassion or Jeevakarunyam is misunderstood by some people that offering food for hunger alone is compassion. But the meaning of compassion entirely is different, offering food for hunger alone is not compassion, but showing the Grace-love towards all living being is the real meaning of it. It also includes that the abjuring flesh meat, treating all the souls as ourselves, and unselfishness as a principle of action.
வாடிய பயிரைக் கண்ட போதலெல்லாம் வாடினேன்
Further more, if the compassion is taken in to deep study, one can clearly understand that how compassion helps to enhance the human senses or knowledge levels. The great saints like Thirumoolar and Valluvar have elaborately discussed the knowledge levels of human beings and divine being in their holy songs. They believed that the level of consciousness of human being could help them for assimilating with God. That is the reason why they emphasize that the level of consciousness is more important one.
To practice and show the reality before the world, saint Vallalar has taken this weapon- Compassion in to his spiritual practice and achieved the target of immortality in the 19th century. Before merging with God, he wanted to help the humanity in such a way that how one could conquer death through Compassion.
ஏனுரைத்தேன் இரக்கத்தால் எடுத்துரைத்தேன் கண்டீர் யானடையும் சுகத்தினைநீர் தான் அடைதல் குறித்தே.
Compassion alone is enough which has all the knowledge and spiritual power. Those who are practicing the same will not be disturbed by Sun light, Rain, Water, Thunder, and Lightening according to saint Vallalar. He also breached the thought that the practice of Yoga and Meditation alone led the soul to God. These activities also some time may not fetch fruitful success; on the other hand it would take long time to do so. (12 years for each stage) Treating all the living beings with compassion or Fellow man Courtesy is the very simplest application, so practice Jeeva Karunya – Compassion in worldly life- God says.
உயிருள் யாம் எம்முள் உயிர் இவை உணர்ந்தே உயிர்நலம் பரவுகென்று உரைத்த மெய்ச்சிவமே
He also described in His Holy Songs that “compassion” alone would enhance the human knowledge levels from 6th senses to 10th senses. Intuition, Self –Realization, Realization of God and Divine - Knowledge are the four more of knowledge levels and these levels of consciousness are more important for realizing Him.
அருளறிவு ஒன்றே அறிவு மற்றெல்லாம் மருளறிவு என்றே வகுத்த மெய்ச்சிவமே
The ancient Pathajali yoga described the 8 fold paths to unite with God, which are namely, Iyamam, Niyamam, Asanam, Pranayamam, Prathyaharam, Tharanai, Thiyanam and Samathy. (Virtue, Self Discipline, Yoga Sitting Posture, Breathing, Self-Realization, God Thinking, Meditation and Union with God- salvation). If “Compassion” is understood clearly here, one could realize that compassion alone will lead to the top most position, where the Lord Dances.
அருள்நிலை ஒன்றே அனைத்தும் பெறுநிலை பொருள் நிலை காண்கெனப் புகன்ற மெய்ச்சிவமே
Compassion instructs the Moral Code, Non-Violence, Non-Killing, Truthfulness, Altruism, Self-Discipline, Purity, Contentment, Endurance, Self Study and Dedication-- these are nothing but Iyamam and Niyamam. The aim of Asana-Yoga posture is to have mental equilibrium. Compassion here means the same as it treats that all living beings are equal. The good deeds nullify the breath exercises- Pranayamam too. Pratyaharam- God Thinking only reverberates and other worldly thoughts are uprooted as Compassion is focusing on all the living beings with unselfishness. Tharanai- Concentration of mind through compassion takes only on one object, i.e. welfare of all living beings; hence Tharanai is also included here. Thiyanam- Meditation is also not required for the compassionate people, as they withdraw their mind from all the selfishness. Samadhi- Union with God or Salvation is realized through altruism and compassionate activities.
Further more, as the level of Consciousness and practice of Yoga is done through Compassion(ஞானயோகம்), the clouds of various worldly thoughts like Kamam, Krotham, Lobam, Mogam, Madham, Matsarya, Agangaram/Mamangaram( Sexual Thoughts, Anger, Unsatisfied desire, Sexual appetite, Arrogance, Jealous and Egoism) are completely removed and the divine light- Arutperum Jodhi is realized upon his/her forehead and divine elixir is brimming from the point where divine light is shown, and this elixir is completely penetrated in to anatomy of human body.
மடல் எலாம் மூளை மலர்ந்திட அமுதம் உடலெலாம் ஊற்றெடுத்து ஓடி நிரம்பிட அருளமுது அளித்தனை அருள்நிலை ஏற்றினை அருளறிவு அளித்தனை அருட்பெருஞ்ஜோதி
Thus the physical body of human being is transformed in to further level immortality. This is what our Master- Almighty – Omnipotent-Omnipresent- Sri Saint Vallalar has shown to the world that how “death” could be conquered through the Great Penance- Compassion.
