The Tulsi Moksham tale is a crash course on spirituality based on Sanatana Dharma. This work is a masterpiece from Maharishi Veda Vyasa, and it seamlessly blends the essential topics covered in the Puranic, Upanishadic, Vedic, and Tantrik scriptures.
To start with, I’ll cover as many ideologies as possible based on the Tulsi Moksham story. In the future, maybe if there’s more participation, I can write about other topics too. Also, instead of sleepwalking through dry philosophy, I’ll try to keep my topics as relevant as possible to today’s spiritual seekers.
The Age-old Practice of Satsang
Satsang, the spiritual get-together, is a familiar concept in Sanatana Dharma. The idea here is to alternate solitude and socializing. Such a way of life promotes our mental health because it helps us balance our alone-time and social interactions. Since this series is a complete course on Sanatana Dharma, let’s try the traditional working method. Though, your participation is essential here for this to be a success.
The scriptures called the Aranyakas point towards a methodology of conducting Satsang as practiced by the sages. The term Aranyaka means those (scriptures) of the forest. These texts were meeting notes of Satsangs conducted by the scholars in the woods. Based on my understanding of these scriptures, this is how the sages worked:
- Some famous sage started a topic of discussion.
- All other scholars and seekers shared their views on the topic.
- They discussed the topic in a saintly manner, with kindness and without trash-talking.
- One designated scribe collected all the notes.
- Eventually, Maharishi Veda Vyasa edited and compiled those as the Aranyakas.
Supporting Swami’s Cause
The core narrative of this profound Tulsi Moksham tale appears in the Devi Bhagavatam. Unfortunately, it seems to be tampered with like most scriptures. Sadly, this is the current state of Sanatana Dharma’s scriptures, where you have to go through numerous sources to fill the narrative discontinuity.
Swami is working tirelessly to resolve this situation with Sanatana Dharma. If we put in some effort, we can be our Lord Rama’s squirrel. Perhaps, if we all work together, we may even be his Vaanara Sena! How can we do that? Let’s pursue the idea that Devi gave me during my meditation:
A Virtual Writing Satsang
We can create a repository of profound Sanatana Dharma-based ideas on this os.me forum! Let’s make this platform the go-to place for anything related to Sanatana Dharma. To start with, we can use the Tulsi Moksham story to achieve that more significant purpose.
With Swami’s blessings, I will spearhead these efforts. All you have to do to assist Swami and me is play along with me.
The Virtual Writing Satsang
How does this Virtual Writing Satsang work? I’ll write posts based on the Tulsi Moksham story initially. Gradually, I’ll cover many other topics as well. Please contemplate that subject thoroughly.
Then, you can do one of the following:
Gather your thoughts and write them as comments on my post.
Write a post on the topic, and share the link as a comment on my post.
As I had mentioned, Swami reads my posts often. That’s something he communicated to me both directly and indirectly. Who knows? Maybe he’ll read your comments here or click on links to your posts! So, please don’t miss out on this opportunity to impress our beloved Swami. 😊
Here’s the idea I discussed today:
The Practice of Satsang
On this topic, you can share anything. The possibilities are neverending, but here are some ideas:
- Scriptural Views
- Your Life Experience
- Your Thoughts and Views
- Your Observations in Society
- Quotes from Sanatana Dharma
- Ideas from other religions
The Importance of Time
To honor Swami’s cause, I’m investing significant time in this effort. I’ll read your posts on these topics and reply to your comments. Further, if you have any questions about the topics covered, you can ask me here or the entire community in the Q&A forum.
Please note that I consider my time a precious asset given to me by the Divine. Additionally, I believe in the idea of progressive fun. If I don’t use my time to evolve myself or help someone else, I feel guilty about wasting a precious part of my short life.
Therefore, if I don’t see enough engagement with these topics, I’ll keep my comments closed, write my thoughts on various topics and move on! So, please don’t blame me if you see the comments closed on this series. 🙃
Now, research, contemplate and write about today’s topic! I strongly urge you to participate actively and present your ideas. Every small thought or view matters because the wisdom you share may be new for someone else. I eagerly look forward to this Virtual Writing Satsang. I sincerely hope you will join me in these efforts.
As per tradition, I offer this first Virtual Writing Satsang post to Lord Ganesha. May he remove all obstacles and help us through these efforts.
