April 4th, 2021 Sunday Morning Youth Session: Separation is a Notion

In this Sunday Morning Youth session, Pujya Swamiji unfolds how our feeling of being separated from God is a notion.  How the separation from God is like river feeling separated from the ocean.  But if we investigate the essential nature of river, is it the banks, the flow or water?  True nature is that which never changes. River when meets the ocean doesn’t remain as Ganga, Kaveri etc.  The incidental changes but the essential doesn’t change.  So also when you forget your identity you behave what you are not.  Separation from God is a notion not a reality!  Knowing this reality that separation was false, notion, you own up your true nature.  So you are what you are from one standpoint, and from other standpoint, you have costume, which changes.  This is the discrimination we have to understand in life.  All values are meant so someday we can recognize our true nature.  When we live the life the right way following the values, it becomes a journey in this direction, so that someday we discover this fact that there is no separation!  To know one’ s essential nature is the real success, and for this we inculcate values in our life.
