    A Riot of Colour

    The world would indeed be a dull place, if everything were to be in black and white. It is colours that add spice to our lives- we feel elated when we see a rainbow, a garden alight with bright blooms, a meadow of green grass topped with sparkling dew, a bright blue sky with the Sun shining as a yellow ball of fire, and so on. The rising and setting Sun is indeed beautiful to watch, for its sheer colourfulness. Can you imagine a world bereft of cheerful colours? It would be as dull and dreary as ditchwater, and make our lives mere drudgery. It is interesting to find from our scriptures that the Creator of all colours is Himself extremely colourful. Let's see some of the hues that He is said to sport on various occasions. To start our colourful journey with the Vedas, the Purusha Sukta describes the Lord as being the colour of the Sun- “Aditya varNam tamasa: parastAt”. The reference to Sun-colour is significant. Just as the Sun is the antithesis of all darkness or evil, so too the Paramatma is verily the abode of all good qualities, and the antithesis of all that is inauspicious (akhila hEya pratyanIka, kalyAnaikatAna).
  3. On, 10 November 2014, Jaya Varusham Aippasi Mirughashirsham; Vanabhojana Utsavam was celebrated in a grand manner at Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple, Lower ahobilam. On this occasion in the morning Sri Prahaladavardan along with ubhya nachiyars had purappadu to Lakshmi Vanam where Thirumanjanam took place. And in the evening Sahasara Deepotsavam took place. Several astikas took part in the Vanabhojana Utsavam and had the blessings of Divya Dampathis. The following are some of the photographs are taken on the occasion…
  4. Sri Annamacharya pleads the Lord of Thirumala to liberate him from bondage. nigama nigamānta varṇita! manohara rūpa! nagarāja-dharuḍa! śrīnārāyaṇā! Srimannarayana! You are described by the Vedas and Upanishads. Your charming form takes captive the hearts of devotees. You bore the Govardhana ( to protect Your devotees from Indra’s raging deluge). The reference to the episode of bearing Govardhana indicates that Govinda is the protector of all. The implication is “As You rescued the simple cattle folk from the rage of Indra, rescue me from the rage of samsara.” Narayana has three characteristics : (I) He is proclaimed in the Vedas and Upanishads, (ii) He has a beautiful form and (iii) He is the protector. Each one of these is sufficient reason by itself to become interested in. When all three reasons have come together, there is no doubt that the devotee is fully consumed by Narayana bhakti. dīpiñcu vairāgya divyasaukhyaṃbiyya nōpaka kadā nannu noḍabarupucu | paipaine saṃsāra bandhamulu kaṭṭēvu nā paluku cellunā nārāyaṇā ? Narayana! Without allowing me the divine comfort of enlightened vairagya (absence of worldly attachment), You posit hazards (of the world) in my favour. You bind me in the bonds of shallow relations. Do my words (of plea) mean anything to You? Vairagya is born out of enlightenment and is a divine comfort. An ignorant person perceives the lures of the world which are detrimental to the well being of the soul as pleasures. Detachment is generally perceived as penance or pain. But, the enlightened saint regards vairagya as the true comfort. Unlike worldly comforts which have fleeting presence and lead eventually to pain, the divine comfort of vairagya is a spiritual state visited before liberation. However, for those without this realization, numerous distractions keep arriving in different forms and keep them busy in painful pursuits, trapping them in the illusion of pleasure as reward. To our saint, the appearance of these distractions is a pain in itself and he has no doubt that they lead one to sorrow. He asks the Lord why he does not let him remain in peaceful vairagya. Why torment him by showing these distractions and by binding him in shallow bonds? Why are his pleas unheeded? cīkāku paḍina nā cittaśāntamu sēyalēkakā nīvu bahulīla nannu kāku sēsedavu | bahukarmula baḍavāru nā koladi vāralā nārāyaṇā ? Narayana! Instead of calming my mind that is seized with revulsion, You cause further torment by subjecting me to Your various games. Am I in the same class as those who know various remedial actions to remove their grief? All beings from Brahma to a blade of grass are trapped in the sport of the Lord. Unless one realizes the Lord, one remains bewitched by the sport and is thrown around like dice by the forces of the universe. Some people who have attained vairagya but not complete enlightenment assume that they can perform some sadhana to attain the Lord by their own efforts. Trusting their own efforts, they try to cross samsara. As they have trusted their own efforts, the Lord remains indifferent waiting for them to complete the efforts. The saint is a prapanna who is fully enlightened and has surrendered to the saving grace of the Lord instead of trusting his own efforts. So, he asks the Lord why He is indifferent to him as He is to one engaged in various efforts for self-redemption. Does the Lord think that our saint belongs to their class? Why doesn’t He save at once? vividha nirbandhamula veḍala drōyaka nannu bhavasāgaramula naḍabaḍa jeturā | divijēndravandya! śrī tiruveṅkaṭādrīśa ! navanīta cōra! Nārāyaṇā ! Forcing me into different situations, You have let me be tossed around in the ocean of rebirth. Narayana! You are worshipped by even the king of Devas, Indra. You are the Lord of Tiruvenkatam. Butter Thief! (save me from this predicament) Despite the Lord being his saviour, if the saint remains tossed around in the ocean of rebirth and faces difficult situations, it is seen as His own doing. A mother, who does not pull her baby away from the well, is accused of pushing the baby into the well herself. As much as it is her duty to protect the baby, so it is the duty of the Lord to protect our saint. Therefore, the saint lays the blame for his prolonged suffering at the doorstep of the Lord and pleads Him to intervene.
