Inimical Mysticism        By   

 

Hatred is inverse Love. This is the rationale of Vidwesha Bhakthi or
Inimical Mysticism.

The doctrine of Inimical Mysticism is that the Lord is the doer and the
devotee has his rights to question the Lord when he subjects his devotee
to suffering !

Yada vairanubhandena martyasthanmayamapi tat
Na tadha bhakti yogena, iti me nischita mati

Not even Bridal Mysticism can get the benign effects of Inimical Mysticism.
It is said that Kamsa and Ravana got Moksha earlier than the Yogis who
extolled Him. In hatred  there is more emotional attachment than in love.
Kamsa and Ravana were always thinking about their  Grand Enemy.
That is what the Yogis were contemplating, as they contemplated Being
Knowledge Bliss !

Milton began the Paradise Lost by saying

That I may assert Eternal Providence
And justify the ways of God to man !

But then his famous statements through Satan were " It is better to reign in
Hell than serve in Heaven" and "Eternity so spent in worship paid, to whom
we hate". Satan became the unconscious hero of Paradise Lost and Milton
could not redeem God with Paradise Regained ! The voice of Satan was
Milton's own, craving for liberty and abhorring the absolute monarchy of
God !

We may with successful hope resolve
To wage by force or guile eternal war
Irreconcilable to our Grand Foe
Who now trimphs and in excess of joy
Sole reigning holds the tyrranny of Heaven !


Says Satan in the Paradise Lost. Who wrote the Paradis Lost?

A world class poet called Miltion and he was following Vidwesha Bhakhti.

There is no philosopher who is not a Poet ( Na rishi kavih )

So he was a world class philosopher and poet, aware that the Lord had made
him suffer, despite him being a scholar ! He had lived laborious days,yet
the  Lord made him bear the cross. He had studied hard, studied every

portion of  the Bible. He was blind and  his life was sunk in immense
suffering. So was  Tasso's. So was Dante's.

Every Thesis has an Anti Thesis and handling both arguments is called the
Dialectical Process. All lawyers know this, all politicians as well as
Rishies.


Charvaka was a Rishie, yet an atheist. There is no God in Buddhism, yet it
is a formidable system. Atheism, Agnosticism ( Buddhism ) etc adorn Indian
Philosophy. A Hindu can  be an athiest, he can be an agnostic, he can be a
Shoonyavadi ( Buddhist ) or a Poornavadi  ( Vedantin ) without being
excommunicated like in other civilisations. This is the  broadminded ness of
Indian Philosophy.


The sloka Yada vairanubandhena is not made by me, but by a Rishie called
Narada, who was a Bhaktha !Without an Opposition, there is no democratic
process. Should  all should extoll God? There should be somebody to
criticise
Him !

He is not a Human Being. He wont get angry either, like you or me. He is
Being Absolute ( Sat ), Knowledge Absolute ( Chit ) & Bliss Absolute (
Ananda ) !

How can it be that Brahm
Could make a world so miserable
And if powerful, leave it so !
He is not good and if not all powerful
He is not God !

Said Bhagavan Buddha in the Light of Asia ( by Sir Edwin Arnold ) . When
asked who the greatest philosopher ever was, Bertrand Russell quipped
" Buddha ".

Mammon led them on,
Mammon, the least erected spirit
Who fell from Heaven
And even in Heaven his looks were downward bent
Admiring more
The riches of Heaven's pavemet, trodden gold

Said Milton.

Satan with his army carried the war into the Enemy's camp. They raged
against the Highest ! With his army generals, Beelzebub, Mammon, Lucifer
etc, they fought against   the tyrranny of Heaven, against Him who gives the
Cross to good and the throne to Evil, who gives   wealth to Evil and lack
of wealth to the good, who gives destruction to the good and blessings  to
Evil !
