Reading the Upanishads: Isha Verse Sixteen
In the 18 verses, the Upanishad sums up the significance and purpose of human life and with what attitude one should live upon earth and depart from here. It speaks about performing your duties, using the knowledge of the Brahman for righteous ends, and achieving liberation. The knowledge of Brahman or Self, and selfless performance of obligatory duties are both important for liberation.
This is the central theme of the Upanishad.
All this is inhabited by God, whatever that moves here in this moving universe. Therefore by renunciation alone enjoy all things. Do not covet what belongs to others.
Since the world and every movement within it is inhabited by God and none else, He is the true owner of the entire world and every action or movement in it.
Pundits Recite Isha Upanishad
As the true inhabitant of the worlds, He alone has the right to enjoy the things of these worlds and none else. In a world on which we can make no ownership claim, a world that actually does not belong to us however rich and powerful we may believe ourselves to be, amidst things whose ownership or kinship we cannot claim rightfully as ours, can there be a better way of living other than renouncing the world and its things and remaining detached from them?
Renunciation is not negation of life. It is not some morose and lifeless experience. We should not renounce life because of despair or depression arising out of our fears, frustration or personal failures. True renunciation arises out of intense longing for the divine, out of a state of mind in which attachment with the Divine alone makes sense and out of a sense of freedom and fearlessness that stem from unflinching faith in God and His supreme will.
You do not renounce life because you do not like it. You renounce life because you love God intensely and live your life with a sense of gratitude and self-surrender. The life of renunciation is a carefree life, utterly devoid of all pretension and seeking and free from the cares and the struggle that accompany all manners of seeking.
Man has the right to enjoy his life. There is a divine sanction for it. Life has to be enjoyed, but without seeking, without coveting, and without struggling to get things done or get things for oneself.
It is the renunciation of seeking and of desiring things which constitute the central feature of a life of true renunciation.
Those who renounce life truly, in fact, enjoy life better than those who do not, because the true sanyasis are not troubled by the fear of loss or the possibility of gain. They accept their lot, what comes to them without struggle and seeking and remain indifferent to what does not come to them or what has departed from them. In this aspect this particular verse advocates a philosophy of life that is similar to "the way" described in Taoism. Always by doing works one should wish to live here for a hundred years.
There is no way other than this by which actions do not cling to you. Demonic verily are the worlds which are enveloped in blinding darkness. And to them go, after death, those who harm their inner selves. In the Bhagavad-Gita says Lord Krishna that the self is the friend of the self and the self also is the enemy of the self.
In the same scripture we also come across a detailed description of the demonic qualities. Those who harm their inner selves are those who engage in wicked actions and harmful qualities.
This verse is a continuation of the same argument on karma that started in the first verse. Do we realize how much harm we do to ourselves each day by our actions and thoughts and what opportunities we fritter away in search of things that actually do not help us in our spiritual progress? Unmoving, yet swifter than mind, beyond the reach of the senses and always ahead of them, standing, it out runs those who run. In it the all pervading air supports the activity of the beings.
The opposite qualities of life which we cannot reconcile in our ordinary capacity are perfectly harmonized and co-exist in the Divine. The unmoving nature of God does not prevent Him from moving in this world and His movements and actions are much faster than what we can achieve or conceive at our level.
God is the real doer, actively inactive and inactively active in the drama of earthly life. It moves and It moves not. It is far and It is near. It is inside all this and also outside all this. He who sees all beings in his own self and his own self in all beings does not suffer from any repulsion by that experience. The whole universe is pervaded by only "I". There is in reality no "you". The "you" exists in our consciousness because of the illusion or maya.
In the universal consciousness of a united soul, there is no you, there is no distinction between the knower and the known, there is no gap between the experience and the object of experience and there is no awareness of anything else except oneself. Every thing happens there simultaneously. It is an all encompassing and comprehensive experience, without any effort, without any motive and without any process. The grammatical notes are structured as follows: After nouns, I have listed the gender, case, and number, followed by the stem or, for pronouns, the base.
It is generally the noun stem with or without prefixes that must be entered into the online Monier-Williams Dictionary in order to obtain results.
In many cases, I have listed the verbal root from which the stem is derived, and have written any prefixes or suffixes separately. After verbs, I have listed the person, number, mood, voice, and, when applicable, secondary conjugations.
This is followed by the root again separated from prefixes and suffixes.
Often, more than one case, gender, etc. To list all of these possibilities in every case would have been cumbersome, but I did make note of different possibilities at times. It is important to note that Sanskrit texts often omit derivatives of to e , so the eade ust usuall add these at thei dis etio. For example, the line in Kena III. English uses sandhi, too: for example,the changing of a to an before vowels.
