Let’s treat social distancing as saadhnaa!

Among the numerous holy people who have showed up in Tamil Nadu, Ramalinga Swamigal, prevalently known as Arut Prakasa Vallalar, stands apart as an otherworldly pioneer with a distinction. He established an all inclusive religion, where no human is segregated on the ground of position, shading, or statement of faith, where God is seen as Jyoti, the brilliant light. His way of thinking, called Suddha Sanmargam, way of immaculateness, truth and flawlessness, depends on all inclusive fellowship, where harmony, generosity and congruity win. He held up specific standards and qualities which he explained in his melody, ‘Thiru Arutpa’. He supported three straightforward ways for an existence of complete satisfaction: pasithiru, thanithiru and vizhithiru – remain hungry, keep up separate and stay alert.

Remain hungry: It doesn’t mean going without food, which is the imperative wellspring of vitality. It implies that one ought to stay away from food every so often and in this manner offer rest to the stomach related framework. The Krishna sanctuary at Guruvayur watches ‘Ekadasi celebration’ consistently when fans keep away from ordinary food. Great wellbeing is controlled by the nature of food that is satvik in its immaculateness, sustenance and equalization. On the off chance that the amount is more, it would prompt inactivity and the journey for information would lessen. Starving for some time would reduce the inclination for sense satisfaction.

Vallalar who is additionally a recognized doctor, specified the sort of food one ought to embrace and the sort of food one should dispose of. Obviously, moderate dietary patterns and solid food would make great obstruction power in the human framework, boosting its insusceptibility.

Look after separation: To stay alone doesn’t mean being completely disconnected from the world; it just methods keeping a good ways from the world. Indian holy people and sages constantly depended on lone spots like woods and wildernesses since they discovered tremendous incentive in social removing. The demonstration of removing oneself from different contacts and being ‘one’s own Self’ accept significance and desperation in the present basic circumstance.

We are so fascinated in different human exercises that we deny ourselves many ‘delights’ like being separated from everyone else, reflecting upon ourselves and mulling over. Our brain has an inclination consistently to turn towards the outer world; subsequently social removing is a chance to divert the psyche to our own source. It is a chance to go further into the truth of our own Self, liberated from the antagonistic impact of the world.

Stay conscious: When an individual gets up from bed in the first part of the day, he thinks he has woken up. As a matter of fact, he has woken up just to the domain of his body and brain. He has woken up just to familiarity with the pictures of the world. He truly awakens just when he comes out of the complexities of his body, psyche and mind and understands his actual nature.

At the point when a horrendous ailment like the novel coronavirus strikes mankind, it ought to be an event to contemplate over the emptiness of life and the purposelessness of material qualities. Events like this should provoke the person to consider over the inquiry, ‘what is genuine?’ This is the time he ought to tune in to the call of the Lord of Death, Yama Dharma Raja: “Emerge, Awake and arrive at the way appeared by the holy people. ” (Uttisthata Jagrata, Kathopanishad 1-iii-14). Maybe, Arut Prakasa Vallalar’s lessons have never been as legitimately pertinent to humankind as they are currently.
