Comunicado sobre la salud de Pujya Swami Dayananda Sarasvati

Como algunos sabéis la salud  de Pujya Swami Dayananda Sarasvati  durante las últimas semanas, a sus ochenta y cinco años, no está siendo muy favorable. Si se tiene en cuenta la vida de Swamiji y las complicaciones en su salud que ha ido sobrellevado todos estos años de atrás, uno solo puede ver la mano del Señor en el papel que ha desarrollado dentro de la tradición del vedanta y el yoga, del hinduismo y de la cultura védica. Es  impresionante ver como Swamiji no ha dejado en algún momento de enseñar ni de darse a las personas que acuden aun enfermo y con graves dolores. Pujya Swami Dayananda es el ejemplo clásico de la compasión natural de un maestro hacia la humanidad. Sri Gurubhyo namah.

Con la intención de informar a los seguidores y alumnos de Swamiji que nos ha pedido información, os vamos a ir dejando algunos informes que nos llegan de las personas que están cerca de él estos días. Nosotros mismos estamos volando a India este jueves para poder estar presente en estos momentos en los que el corazón nos llama a dar las gracias por todo lo que Swamiji nos ha regalado y nos sigue dando.

Abajo os dejo el informe del director del ashram de Saylorsburg, en inglés, si hay personas que no puede leerlo, pueden escribirme y lo traduciremos. 


“After leaving the Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg on Tuesday, the 25th of August of 2015, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati stopped at the Arsha Vidya Gurukulam on his way to Allentown Airport. His flight on a small plane left at 8:00 pm for India with a few stops along the way, first at Newfoundland, then Ireland and one or two more places before arriving in Delhi. From there he was to go to Rishikesh. Besides the crew, a couple of doctors and Sureshji were on the flight with him.

Pujya Swamiji came to the gurukulam at 5:00 pm for the afternoon arati in the Daksinamurti temple. The whole visit was videotaped by Ramji and maybe it will be available on Pujya Swamiji had only one hour with us, but it was unforgettable. Even before Pujya Swamiji came, the loud speaker was playing a collection of his old songs and we were singing along with the students in the recording.

I took notes, but this time Pujya Swamiji’s sentences were all short. His voice would suddenly change pitch and I would lose some of what he said. Pujya Swamiji was wheeled into the temple lying on a metal stretcher bed with wheels. He was propped up slightly with a pillow and facing the devotees in the hall. Since I was seated at a close distance, I could hear well.

Pujya Swamiji started by repeating “Om tat sat” many times. Then he quoted verse 27, Chapter 2 of the Bhagavadgita: jätosya hi dhruvo mtyurdhruva janma mtasya ca. tasmadapariharye’rthe na tvaa śocitum arhasi. “For that which is born, death is certain and for that which is dead, birth is certain. Therefore, you ought not to grieve over that which cannot be altered.”

It was Lord Krishna telling Arjuna that there is no reason to grieve.

Pujya Swamij quoting Gitā: “The dying will be born again” – not us! There is a perpetuation. Nothing seems to finish. There is such a thing as jéva samädhi. Jévan, while alive, you gain mahä samadhi: “jéva samadhi“.

I am an extraordinary upädhi [refering to his sthula and suksma śariras , physical and subtle bodies]. I didn’t have any […]. I just passed school final. In those days only 11 years, high school and that too Tamil medium. No college.

If I can boast myself, I am a great communicator. A communicator is one who knows what he communicates reaches the person, uses words. “Fine words butter no parsnips.” We waste our time using useless words – in writing, in speaking.

I love this auditorium. I’ve spent hours in this auditorium. You require both acoustics and communication. There was an inauguration of a hall near Vijay Vada. … There was so much echo in the new hall. You don’t hear anything, neither your sound, nor other sound. That gentleman, the chairman of the municipal corporation ……, he says, “Let us go outside. There you get good sound.” Typical India. Modi will change (it). I hope I will meet him. If I arrive, I may. [crowd: “You will Swamiji!” applause.] We need to change the social chemistry of India, and the economic chemistry of India.

I am brought up by grace. It was only grace. It was nothing else except grace. Here grace, gurus’ grace: Sat Guru Swami Chinmayananda, Swami Pranavananda, Swami Tarananda Giri, nothing but grace, grace, grace, grace, nothing but grace, nothing but gurus’ grace; grace, grace, nothing but grace, grace. [He seemed to be going into an altered state and Ravi stopped him by saying that Maharajapuram Ramachandran will sing. It didn’t stop him.] Grace, grace, grace, grace, grace….

[Pujya Swamiji was told that they would start the arati and they turned his stretcher bed around so he was facing Sri Dakñinamurti.] Nama parvati hara hara maha deva. [Then the priest started the Ganga ärati.]

Afterwards, Pujya Swamiji wanted to see everybody, so his stretcher bed was pushed all around the hall. We were told not to touch him. He can’t hear, but he can see a person who is close by. To get the chance to see him and have eye contact with him has been a tremendous blessing, really impossible to describe in words. I am blessed. We are all infinitely blessed.

Please keep prayers going. Even if one considers prayers to be mithya, they also have a mithyä effect. Mithya is what is useful in terms of reality. What is sat is the reality which is one without a second and has neither cause nor effect. So within this mithya reality, which we all experience without exception, prayers are useful and can have a powerful effect.

Regarding his maha samadhi, let us all lovingly leave it up to Pujya Swamiji to decide.

With unlimited gratitude for what he has given to the humanity, I renew my commitment to finish the work he has entrusted me with.

Om tat sat.”
