தங்களது பணிச்சுமைக்கிடையில் எனக்கு விளக்கமளித்தமைக்கு மிக்க நன்றி.
திரைப்படம் சத்தியமல்ல. கனவும் சத்தியமல்ல. ஆனால் பரமன் சத்தியம். பலவாக ஆகுவேனாக என்ற சங்கல்பத்தின் விளைவான நானும் பரமன் என உணர வைத்த தங்களது தாழ் பணிகிறேன். செய்ய வேண்டியதைச் செய்யத்தவறுவதும் செய்யக்கூடாததைச் செய்வதுமே கர்ம வினைகளுக்குக் காரணம் என்பதை உணர்கிறேன். ஆனால் நான் செய்த கர்ம வினைகளுக்கேற்ப இப்பிறவி எடுத்து நான் பரமன் என்பதை உணரும் முன்பே மேலும் நான் செயலாற்றியுள்ள நிலையில் முக்தியடைய முயற்சிப்பது எவ்வாறு சாத்தியமாகும்? அவ்வாறின்றி மறு பிறவி எடுத்தாலும் நான் பரமன் என்பதை உணரும் முன்பே செயலாற்றி விடக்கூடிய சந்தர்ப்பம் உள்ள நிலையில் நான் கடைத்தேறுவது எவ்வாறு?
நல்வழி காட்ட வேண்டுகிறேன்.

Dear Avudaiappan,

we are continuously engaged in Karma. And we are bound to reap the results of our Karma. This being the case how it is ever going to be possible to get liberation. This is your question. Let me answer it now.

The theory of karma is revealed in Vedas. It is clearly stated that the moment one realizes the truth that I AM BRAHMAN then he is fully liberated from the bindings of Karma. Therefore, you do not have to worry whether it is possible to get liberation.

You need to do two things. Do good karma and avoid bad karma. This is important because until you get liberation you need to ensure that your life is good. (Without good karma you will not even get a chance to find a guru for attaining liberation). Secondly, strive to get liberation by realising I AM BRAHMAN here and now without bothering about the accumulated Karma. You need to make efforts on both these simultaneously although it may appear to that it is not possible. Thinking that it is not possible to get liberation while doing Karma, is part of the ignorance.

Everyone who has some idea about the revelation in Vedas know that the world is an illusion and the only truth is Brahman. Everyone knows I am Brahman. But this knowing is not realisation.

It is like saying I know Taj Mahal without ever visiting Agra. One has to have direct knowledge to gain realisation. It is not enough to understand that the Vedas declare 'You are Brahman'. It is essential to realise this truth for oneself. Once this realisation happens ALL THE QUESTIONS will disappear. What will happen to the effect of Karma will no longer a meaningful question after this realisation.

To gain realisation one has to systematically and continuously study Vedanta under the guidance of a live teacher for a length of time.

Thanks for asking this question. Sorry for not responding in Tamil. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you want.

Best wishes,
Raja Subramaniyan
