Who is an Aspirant (Sadhaka)?(continued)
Question - What are the indications that an aspirant is progressing in his spiritual path?
Answer - The lesser a sadhaka (aspirant) is attracted to the world and the more he is dedicated to God, that much he is progressing in the spiritual path. In the spiritual path, attraction and aversion gradually diminish. Comparitively, if there is no decrease in the attraction of worldly pleasures and in attachmentaversion, pleasure-pain etc., and if there is no peace of mind, then what spiritual practices has he really done?
Question - What happens on achieving perfection (siddh) in one's spiritual discipline?
Answer - For such an emancipated person, nothing remains to be done, to be known and to be acquired. An aspirant secures great gains, after which he does not reckon any other benefits greater than that and in that state he cannot be tormented and disturbed by even the greatest of sorrows.*
On accomplishing perfection (Siddhi) he finds nothing incomplete in himself and sees nothing special about himself. Till the aspirant perceives something special about himself and believes himself to be an accomplished and perfected soul, for that long he retains his individual ego (individuality, separate identity). As long as the ego is present, individuality, antipathy, inactivity, lack, disquietude, doership and enjoyership and all faults persist.
Question - What is the difference between an aspirant of a high order and an emancipated soul (siddha)?
Answer - The aspirant after achieving the high order state, while in the waking state, he retains the awareness of the discrimination between the sentient and the insentient, but in the sleeping state he becomes oblivious of it; that is while on waking up, the aspirant recovers his discretion (vivek). But the emanicipated Soul in all conditions (states) constantly, automatically and naturally retains this discrimination. On awakening from sleep he does not have to grasp this discrimination. Other persons cannot understand and discern the differences between an aspirant of a high order and an emancipated soul, as it is a matter of one's own realization.
Question - What is the difference between a "Tattvajna" and a "Tattvanishthaa"?
Answer - A Tattvajna retains softness while the latter holds a firm approach. The actions of the former are like drawing lines on water, while the latter's actions are like drawing line in the air. In effect, the former retains remnant of his nature (impression), while in the latter no previous influence (impression) subsists, for him the world including the inner sense has no existence at all while the Divinity constantly and naturally persists.
Even after achieving divine knowledge (tattvajnana), a Tattvajnani may take some time to become "Tattvanishtha". But for that, no practice or effort is necessary but automatically, at the appropriate time, it is transformed into Tattvanishtha in the same way just as, a thorn having been pulled out still causes pain, which is overcome in due course. Just like by throwing water on a fire it extinguishes, but the ashes remain hot for some time. In due time these ashes cool down naturally on their own and the heat dissipates. A tree even after being cut from the root may have some leaves on the trunk which continue to be green, and in due time these automatically dry up. On waking up from sleep, one's eyes may feel heavy, but the condition is overcome in sometime. This goes to show that a Tattvajna in due course automatically becomes Tattvanishthaa.Narayana !
