On the way, a pathetic sight attracted his eyes.
On the path leading to the river sat a young woman. She was the very picture of grief.
A dead body, evidently of her husband, lay on the ground, its head resting on her lap. She was vhavani loudly and soliciting help from all present there for the proper performance of the funeral rites of her departed husband.
She had ashtakak sitting with a corpse in such a way that the narrow path leading to the Manikarnika Ghat was quite blocked. Shankara waited for long, it was getting quite late for the bath, and there was no other path leading to Manikarnika Ghat.
He had, therefore, to ask the sorrowing woman, ” Mother, if you will remove the corpse to one side of the pathway, we can move on aahtakam the river “. The woman seemed to be so overwhelmed with grief that she could not pay attention to Shankara’s words.
On being repeatedly requested by Shankara for the removal of the lifeless body to one side of the pathway, the woman responded telling him, ” Why, Great Soul, why do you not yourself ask the corpse to move aside? Can a corpse ever move of its own accord!
Has it in itself ashtqkam needed momentum for moving aside? Is this not so? When Brahman is ever present everywhere, why should not the corpse then move? But where was the woman now?
And where was the corpse? In a trice everything had receded. What divine sport was hhavani Shankara’s mind was filled with an indescribable joy. Within and without, he experienced the sportive play of the Great Enchantress, Mahamaya, who is none but Adya Shakti or the Primal Energy.
ashyakam It was because of her glance that earth and heaven throbbed. Bending on his knees, Shankara began to sing in praise of the Goddess Mahatripurasundari, the sole refuge of the universe.
I am taking refuge at thy feet. Thou art my sole shelter. Thou my only heaven, Mother Bhavani! I have surrendered myself to thee. Nhavani debate and in danger, in error and in alien lands, in water and in fire, on hills, among foes and in forests, do thou protect me every where and in all places.
Bhavani Ashtakam – Wikipedia
Thou art alone my sheet-anchor. Thou alone my only refuse security- Bhavanyashtakam! She was it, he understood the Creator, the Preserver, and the Destroyer of this phenomenal universe and it was She again that bestowed material abundance and also the final salvation from conditioned existence.
Ashtalam was by the inducement of Her glance of Divine Sport that the Universe blossomed out. It was in her affection-filled bosom that the Universe had its being, and it was she who bore in Her, being the granary bhaavani the cosmic universe.
Bhavani Ashtakam – In sanskrit with meaning
All this Shankara realized with clarity and fullness by a moment of Mother’s divine Grace. His heart felt strangely filled. He finished his bath at the Manikarnika Ghat and came back to his residence with an enchanted mind. His ashtaam of thought and his pattern of behavior now underwent a revolutionary change. He had already experienced that the individual Soul-Jiva and the Infinite Soul Brahman were identical and non-different. He now understood that the attributeless absolute Brahman was just ashakam witness, a mere spectator and no more.
The authorship of the universe was that of the Primordial Energy Adya Shakti. Shankara had become established in Samadhi Aahtakam and in the Supreme knowledge of non-dual Brahman.
But he had not yet attained to a complete measure of the knowledge and the outlook and the attitude that, on the plane where the Jiva functions, and in the region of the practical and the pragmatic, ” The universe in entirety is of the stuff of Ashyakam Absolute “. But Shankara’s advent was only for the purpose of working out a divine mission.
His enjoinment of self-bliss by remaining immersed in Nirvikalpa Samadhi, which is the state of unqualified self-absorption, would not help him to accomplish his life’s purpose. He would have to work out a practical application to life and labor on earth, of his experience of the Absolute Reality subsisting in all created objects and of his perceiving of the Absolute Reality everywhere and in all places. Only then, and only that way, would he become the meaningful living embodiment of the Great Utterance, “All this indeed is verily Brahman”, and this Supreme self-knowledge of the non-dual Reality would be reflected in his life.
