The Jagadguru Speaks…

Resplendence of a Satpurusha

Ram Parivar

Man must always have good thoughts and utter only good words. His heart must ever be full of compassion. He must always be helpful to others. Only such a person is known as a satpurusha.

However, these days we see that many people think something, speak something else and act in an altogether different way. This is not good; this is not an attribute of a satpurusha.

In the Ramayana, Ravana who was full of bad thoughts while abducting Sita, but pretended to be good, had no inkling of the sorrow that lay in store for him in days to come. He even spurned sane counseling. Ultimately, he was totally destroyed.

In contrast, Lord Rama was always thinking of the welfare of all and did good to all. The habit of thinking something and acting in some other way was totally alien to him. That is why he attained everlasting fame.

Likewise, all people must maintain trikaranasuddhi (purity and uniformity of thought, word and deed). That is, they must be the embodiment of virtues in maintaining the alignment of thought, speech and action (sattvagunasampanna:). Who will not bow down to such a person ?

We bless that all attain sreyas by maintaining trikaranasuddhi.
