We Thanks to Swami for giving yet another opportunity for us at Mill Hill to start a very valuable Vedantic learning of Bhaja Govindam.
It is written by Jagadguru Sri Adi Shankaracharya. it contains the essence of Vedanta and implores the man to think, Why am I here in this life ? Why am I amassing wealth, family, but have no peace ? What is the Truth ? What is the purpose of life ?The person thus awakened gets set on a path to the inner roadback to the God principle
The class was attended by all SSE children, Gurus, Parents and Devotees. This is form of Study circle to reflect upon the Advaita philosophy.
During his stay in Kashi, Adi Shankaracharya noticed a very old man studying the rules of Sanskrit by Panini. Shankara was touched with pity at seeing the plight of the old man spending his years at a mere intellectual accomplishment while he would be better off praying and spending time to control his mind.
Shankara understood that the majority of the world was also engaged in mere intellectual, sense pleasures and not in the divine contemplation. Seeing this, he burst forth with the verses of Bhaja govindaM. In 31 verses, he, like no other, explains our fallacies, our wrong outlook for life, and dispels our ignorance and delusions. Thus bhaja govindam was originally known as moha mudgara, the remover of delusions.
