This is recited in temples towards the end of Puja ritual and also chanted in pious Hindu homes either daily or on special Puja occasions. I am placing this in my blog putting the same idea that I gathered from another site for my own benefit primarily as well as someone else who may accidentally land up here. This continuum of experiences alone is the life lived by us from birth to death of the body.
A human being is thus just a collection of experiences. Vaasanaa means an unfulfilled subtle seed of an experience which resides in the mind. A person who gains knowledge through experiences becomes endowed with good Vaasanaas which manifest as good experiences.
A person who knows the flower of the waters becomes endowed with the vision of seeing everything without particularities; he understands that he as the Self Brahman alone is shining as the world bereft of differentiations.
Moon is of the nature of waxing and waning. Mind also is of the nature of waxing and waning. Mind oscillates from joy to sorrow as it wades through various experiences. Mind is the flower or knowledge one gains out of the waters namely experiences. The store- room for all the information of the world gathered through senses is the mind. It does not reside in the heart or brain; it is not a visible organ; but just a process of collecting information.
This mind-process is different for different individuals. Experiences are waters. What is the support of these experiences? On what stable ground does the river of experiences flow? Without this essence of consciousness, nothing can be experienced by anybody.
Life is a continuous stream of experiences. Each individual has different experiences that belong to him alone. These experiences alone make him an individual who lives a life. Why is it a fire? Because it burns! It blazes high! It suffers a lot! Experiences are the fuel which keeps the fire burning. Fire goes on consuming more and more experiences and suffers because of delusion.
Life of a person in a physical form is based on the nature of the experiences one has. The experiences are possible because of the existence of a perceiver Fire who experiences consumes the experience water.
Unless a conscious perceiver is there, experiences cannot be had. The fire burns fiercely because of the wind. What is this wind? It is Praana, the principle of contact. It is the medium which connects the changeless Brahman to the changing patterns of the world. Vaayu helps the consciousness to perceive the objects of the world. Wind or Praana or the vibrating power of Brahman provides the contact between the world and the Aatma, the essence of consciousness in an individual.
This contact principle alone causes the experiences to unfold. Who burns here? This one — the fire! But he is not the fire! This one who is identified with the fire is actually the Brahman who is the witness of all experiences. He is the Sun! Who is the Sun?
He is the witness consciousness! He just is aware of the experiences and makes possible the experiences. He is Brahman. He is Aatman. He is unaffected by the experiences. He is the support of waters. He is the supporting principle for all experiences. Moon contains nectar. Mind alone experiences the bliss. Moon vacillates between light and darkness. Mind wavers between happiness to sorrows. Moon Mind is never stable like the Sun Witness state of Brahman. Moonlight is actually the reflected light of the Sun.
It has no shine of its own. Mind is inert. It is conscious of the sensations because of the witness-consciousness, supporting it. Though its awareness is due to the witness-consciousness, it appears as if it is separate from the Sun and seeks enjoyment from the perceived world.
The bliss experienced in the mind actually belongs to the Brahman or Self which is the support of the mind. But mind is deluded and seeks the same bliss from the inert objects outside. Mind alone is the support of all experiences. All experiences are centered on the moon, the mind-principle. Mind comes into existence to gain the experiences. Stars do not change their positions. They are fixed. They are the fixed rules ordained by the Creator.
Brahma, the Creator is the total mind structure of all the individuals. He is the Lord with the golden womb HiranyaGarbha who experiences all the experiences of all the perceivers of his creation. But as the Creator remains always in the witness state, he is not affected by the perceptions. He sets the rules for his creation. These ideas of the Creator alone form the basis of all the experiences of the created beings. Cloud is the collection of water vapors that are ready to pour down as rains.
These unmanifest Vaasanaas alone are experienced by a Jeeva in some manifest field of space and time. Parjanya — the thundering noise represents the deviation from the silent Brahman state to the level of the ignorant Jeeva who lives imprisoned in a world of sound names and forms.
Cloud alone pours down as waters. Jeeva is a continuity of Vaasanaa-unfoldment processes. At each Vaasanaa-fulfillment each drop of rain , there arises a three-fold phenomenon of the perceiver, perceiving and perceived. Though rain-drops are separate, the downpour gives an illusion of continuity. As a Jeeva keeps on perceiving the Vaasanaa-fields, one after another, he produces more Vaasanaas desire-seeds which are kept in wait to turn into future experiences. Experiences again form the basis for the birth of many more Vaasanaas.
Samvatsara is span of time where changes of seasons occur. Samvatsara is the measure of time. Samvatsara is the time-frame which allows the Vaasanaas to manifest. Samvatsara is the time-frame inside which, a Jeeva identified with the physical body goes through the six-fold changes of birth, youth, growth, old age, decay, and death, like a year has the six seasons as its counterparts.
Life lived within the boundary of a time-span undergoing the changes of birth etc. Each Vaasanaa comes with a built-in frame of time and space. Vaasanaa-fulfillment experience alone forms the basis of the limited existence of a Jeeva. All these experiences, Vaasanaa fulfillments and the pains gone through as the ego; all these are caused by the ignorance-level of the Jeeva. Because of forgetting the true nature of the Self Brahman , there arises the identification of the physical body like a ghost in darkness.
This identification with the physical form alone is the basis of experiences water , information flower , contact wind , unmanifest desires cloud , and the changing patterns experienced in life year. Knowledge alone destroys the delusion, like light destroying the darkness; like the ghost vanishing when reasoned properly. Knowledge alone acts as the boat to cross over the waters of experiences.
He is free of all Vaasanaas which act as the seeds of all the experiences in the limited time-frame. He is freed of his Jeeva-hood which is chained to the Vaasanaas. He remains as the witness-consciousness and is freed of all the six fold changes of the body. Even when the body dies, he remains deathless as Brahman-state. At last,I found the hidden meaning in your blog.
Mantra pushpam is a Vedic hymn that is sung at the time of offering of the flowers to the Hindu deities at the very end of the Pujas. The mantra is considered to be the flower of Vedic chants. This mantra is taken from the Taittiriya Aranyakam of the Yajur Veda. It speaks of the unlimited benefits which will be conferred by the secret knowledge of the water, fire, air, the sun, the moon, the stars, the clouds and time. It is normally sung in a chorus by all the Pujaris priests together after performing any Puja worship or Yajna.
