સિદ્ધાંત રહસ્ય

Of the sixteen “granthas”, this is one of the most fundamental in Pushti Marg. It describes the events of the night when Lord Shri Krshna first instructed Shri MahaPrabhu Vallabhacharyaji to initiate people in to a new sect, to be called the “Pushti Marg”. The stotra or paatha (hymn)describes how the Lord graced Shri Acharya with his own mantra, and set out the fundamental values and rules of the sect to him.

Siddhanta = Fundamental value(s)

Rahasya = Secret / confidential

Gujarati Padyanuvad (Poetic Transliteration)

એકાદશી મહારાત્રે શ્રાવણે શુક્લ પક્ષમાં
સાક્ષાત ભગવાને ભાખ્યું તેહ અક્ષરશઃ કહું ।૧

બ્રમ્હસંબંધ કીધાથી સર્વેયે દેહજીવના
સૌ દોષોજ નિવારાયે દોષ છે પંચવિધના ।૨

જન્મસંગી, લોકવેદે વર્ણયા તે દેશકાલના
સંયોગજા સ્પર્શજન્મ્યા અન્ય કો માનવા નહીં ।૩

નથી એ સહુ દોષોનું અન્યથા કો નિવારણ
વણસમર્પી વસ્તુઓ તે માટે સર્વ વર્જવી ।૪

સમર્પણી સમર્પી સૌ કરે, મર્યાદ એજ છે
દેવના દેવને ન્હોય અર્ધમાણ્યું સમર્પણ ।૫

તેથી સૌ કાર્યમાં પ્હેલ્લું સૌ વસ્તુનું સમર્પણ
‘દીધું ને લેવું’ એ વાક્ય તથા ‘સૌ હરીનુંય’ તે ।૬

અગ્રાહ્ય’ વેણ એ તો અન્ય માર્ગ વિશે કહ્યાં
સેવકોનો જેમ લોકે જાણીતો વ્યવહાર છે ।૭

સમર્પી કરવું તેમ, પામે સૌ તેથી બ્રમ્હતા
સૌ દોષોય ગંગરૂપ, ગુણદોષાદિ પૂર્વના ।૮

ગંગાત્વે જ વર્ણવાય, એ રીતેજ અહીંય તે ।૮ ૧/૨

English Transliteration

Here I state, word by word, what the Lord Shri Krshna said to me on the mid-night of the eleventh day of the dark fortnight of the month of Shravan (monsoon season).1

By the virtue of being initiated by the “Brahma Sambandha” mantra (sacred mantra, given separately to Shri Acharya), all the sins of the body and the soul are destroyed. Hence, the five obstacles (mentioned in the Vedas and Puranas) to service / “seva” of the divine are also removed.2

These obstacles, viz (1) body and it’s various states and pure/ impure conditions, (2) your environs, eg country or general state of the area around you (e.g desert, mountains, foreign country etc.) And influence of Kala or “time” ie age, time of day / night etc. (3) Instructions as set by the society at large and the scriptures (Vedas) etc. (4) Influence of your friends and company in general. (5) Impurity incurred by touching impure / inauspicious things. Let none of these stand in your way of service to the Lord.3

Apart from Brahma Sambandha (relationship with the Lord), there is no way to destroy one’s sins. Hence, discard all things that have not been offered to the Lord.4

Those devoted to me, after having taken the Brahma Sambandha, must offer up all their actions and fruits of their deeds un-to me. Lord Shri Krshna, God of all the gods, should never be offered anything that has already been offered to others, or used by others.5

Therefore, a devotee must offer everything to the Lord before beginning any project (this includes the “desire to do the work”, all the physical objects required to do the work) and also the fruits (success or otherwise) of the work to the Lord. Some sects believe that those things offered up to the Lord are Lord’s possessions and can not be used by them. But this is not the view of the Pushti Marga. All things must be offered to the Lord before utilising them yourself.6.5

In a worldly relationship, an employee always seeks guidance and approval of his employer, similarly, always seek guidance and approval of the Lord in all your actions. By offering all your actions un-to Him, your actions will also become as pure and divine like Him.7.5

Like the great Ganges, the Lord purifies all those who come to Him. Muddy / dirty waters of a spring, when they meet the Ganges, are purified by Her divine touch and hence-forth the waters of that spring are given the same respect as the Ganges. Similarly, once a soul merges with the Lord, no matter what his/ her previous state, he/ she becomes as pure as the Lord Himself.8.5
