VASISHTHA said—

 

अथ राम* उवाच_अस्य मुने केन विपश्चितः

atha rAma* uvAca_asya mune kena vipazcita: |

स्याद् उपायेन दुःख.अन्तः प्राक्तन.आत्म.उदयाद् इति ॥७।१३०।१॥

syAt_upAyena du:kha.anta: prAktana.atma.udayAt_iti ||7|130|1||

.

then *rAma asked him:

"muni, how did *vipashchit, after his long suffering, reach his present state?"

and then rAma asked of him: = mune – "muni, =

केन विपश्चितः स्याद् उपायेन -by what means would there be for *vipashchit =

दुःख-अन्तः -after his suffering = प्राक्तन-आत्म-उदयाद् इति -his rising to this present state?"

*sv.1 RAMA asked: O sage, how, by whom and by what means will this deer be freed from its unfortunate state of existence?

*vlm.1 VALMIKI related;—rAma then asked Vasishtha, to tell him by what means Vipaschit was released from his brutish shape and restored to his human form again.

 

येन_एव_अभ्युदिता यस्य तस्य तेन विना गतिः

.

yena_eva_abhyuditA yasya tasya tena vinA gati: na zobhate na sukhadA na hitAya na sat.phalA

.

येन एव_अभ्युदिता -How this (state) has arisen, यस्य -for whom,

तस्य -of him तेन विना गतिः -without that (suffering), the path

शोभते -is not beautiful, सुख.दा -nor pleasure.giving

हिताय -nor beneficial सत्फला -nor fruitful.

*sv.2 VASISTHA replied: The way out of this misfortune is that which was its original cause. Any other path is not the right one and it will not be productive of happiness, welfare or fruition.

*vlm.2. Vasishtha said:—The way by which a person has had his rise, is the only means that conduces to his success, welfare and happiness in life; (and a departure from this course, brings on his ruin).

* RKhare – Not only does the author of the Yogavāsiṣṭha regard other systems of philosophy with respect, but also thinks that it is advisable for every man to stick to his own method of spiritual realization, provided he meets with success and makes progress through it. He says, “That method by which a man makes progress is the best for him. He should not change it for another, which might not look right to him, nor pleases him, nor be useful to him (YV 7.130.2.).”

pUrva.rUpam avApnoti -a former form attains =

nirmalam kanakam yathA – refined gold is so.

#praveza

*sv.3 The king vipazcit adored the fire; and by entering into the fire this deer will regain its former state, just as gold regains its lustre by being purified in the fire.

*vlm.3. Vipaschit had been a worshipper, and it is by his re entrance in to the refuge of that deity only; that his changed form of the stag, may be altered and restored to its former figure, of bright and unalloyed gold.

*sv.4 Behold, I shall make this deer enter into the fire.

*vlm.4. I will now try the means of his restoration in your presence, as you may all witness it with your open eyes; and this stag will of itself enter into the fire before your sight.

*vlm.5. Válmiki related:—Saying so, the benevolent sage, touched his water pot with his hand, and muttered his mantras upon it in the proper form. (i.e. with fixed attention).

*sv.5-6 VALMIKI said: So saying, the sage Vasistha sipped water from his sacred water-pot and created a fire in the middle of the hall, without any fuel.

*vlm.6. He thought intently upon the god of fire, with his flashing flames all around him; and immediately there sprang a blaze of fire, upon his reflection on it; (in the midst of the royal hall).

*sv.5-6 VALMIKI said: So saying, the sage Vasistha sipped water from his sacred water-pot and created a fire in the middle of the hall, without any fuel.

VASISHTHA THE PLENTIFUL declared–

 

अथ राम* उवाच_अस्य मुने केन विपश्चितः

.

then *rAma asked him:

"muni, how did *vipashchit, after his long suffering, reach his present state?"

and then rAma asked of him: = mune – "muni, =

केन विपश्चितः स्याद् उपायेन .by what means would there be for *vipashchit =

दुःख.अन्तः .after his suffering = प्राक्तन.आत्म.उदयाद् इति .his rising to this present state?"

*sv.1 RAMA asked: O sage, how, by whom and by what means will this deer be freed from its unfortunate state of existence?

*vlm.1 VALMIKI related;—rAma then asked Vasishtha, to tell him by what means Vipaschit was released from his brutish shape and restored to his human form again.

*sv.2 VASISTHA replied: The way out of this misfortune is that which was its original cause. Any other path is not the right one and it will not be productive of happiness, welfare or fruition.

*vlm.2. Vasishtha said:—The way by which a person has had his rise, is the only means that conduces to his success, welfare and happiness in life; (and a departure from this course, brings on his ruin).

* RKhare – Not only does the author of the Yogavāsiṣṭha regard other systems of philosophy with respect, but also thinks that it is advisable for every man to stick to his own method of spiritual realization, provided he meets with success and makes progress through it. He says, “That method by which a man makes progress is the best for him. He should not change it for another, which might not look right to him, nor pleases him, nor be useful to him (YV 7.130.2.).”

*sv.30.31 bhAsa* took his seat among the sages in the assembly.

*vlm.31. Válmiki related:—Thus accosted by the king, the prince now bearing the name of Bhásha, took his seat on a cushionion, after making his salutation, to the venerable sages Vivlmamitra and others.

*sv.30.31 bhAsa* took his seat among the sages in the assembly.

.

*sv.32 King dazaratha continued: "Alas, like a tethered elephant, this king vipazcit had to undergo countless trials and tribulations.

*vlm.32. Dasharatha exclaimed:—O the pains, that Vipaschit has so long undergone, under the thraldom of Ignorance; in the manner of a wild elephant, tied in fetters at his feet by ruthless huntsmen.

*vlm.33. O to what miseries is man exposed, owing to his want of precise understanding, and by his false knowledge of the reality of these worlds, that are seen to be revolving in empty shape.

*sv.33.34.35 What a great calamity follows imperfect vision of the reality and the perverse understanding of the truth. Though essentially unreal and non.existent, it is amazing what power this illusion has, that it can seemingly create such diverse worlds in the infinite consciousness, and such varied experiences."
