The story of chess

samskrita Google Group - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 19:01
I am writing this in the background of the current World Championship games being played at Chennai. It is well known that the game of chess originated in India. It was known as chaturangam.  It is to be split as chatur+ angam or four parts. This is what Amarasimha the well knon lexicographer says a

सुखस्य दु:खस्य कोऽपि न दाता...

सुभाषितपुष्प (FB) - Thu, 11/21/2013 - 11:43
सुखस्य दु:खस्य कोऽपि न दाता
परो ददाति इति कुबुद्धिरेषा ।
अहं करोमीति वृथाभिमान:
स्वकर्मसूत्रे ग्रथितो हि लोक:।।

There is no one who gives us happiness or pain. The thinking that someone else gives it is totally wrong. The feeling ‘I do’ (I’m the doer) is wrong. Every person is bonded with the `Karma’ of his/her previous birth (Whatever happens with us is an effect of our previous birth behaviour).

सुख या दुःख देनेवाला कोई भी नहीं होता। दूसरा कोई हमें यह देता है, यह विचार गलत है। "मैं करता हूँ", यह अभिमान गलत है। सभी अपने-अपने पूर्वजन्म के कर्मों से बन्धे हुए होते हैं।

Sanskrit Pearl of the day:
अनायासेन मरणं विना दैन्येन जीवनम् ।
देहान्ते तव सायुज्यं देहि मे पार्वतीपते ॥ 

anaayaasena maraNaM vinaa dainyena jeevanam |
dehaante tava saayujyaM dehi me paarvatIpate ||

Meaning of the subhAShita:
Death without exertion; Life without affliction; Thy proximity (Attainment of thy abode) upon leaving the body - grant me these O Lord of paarvatI. 
Upon asking 'what do you want', there may be a plethora of wishes one wants to ask for.  Grant me a big house, a bigger bank balance, plentiful youth, good children, lots of friends, good health.....  The list can be endless!

But the author of this verse has very simple, but most profound and eternal wishes to ask for!

No matter how many riches one is showered with, if he is living a painful existence in his body, who would not want to be liberated from that pain?!  The best of the ambiances and the greatest of the food will prove repulsive for someone who is suffering from pain of any kind - it could be physical pain, being on life support, etc., or a mental affliction of the highest order.  Anyone would want to live a fruitful, satisfying life and pass away peacefully, without much effort, exertion or toil.  This is something to pray for.

While living, there can be multitudes of scarcities - there are places where there is not enough drinking water, there are people who do not have food to eat or a shelter to sleep under.  Such scenarios are not pleasant for any being and would want to be released from the affliction of poverty of any kind.  That sure is something to pray for, so that he can pursue his goal in life without worries.

Through out our lives, we are taught to engage in good deeds, so that we are liberated from the bondage of the cycle of birth and death.  That really is the final goal of any being anyway.  If one is granted the abode of the Lord Himself, a merger with the Lord of paarvatI, being one with parashiva Himself, what more would one ever want?!!

Think about it....  Aren't these the aspects one should contemplate upon and ask for?!

pada vigrahaH:
अनायासेन मरणं विना दैन्येन जीवनम् ।
anaayaasena maraNaM vinaa dainyena jeevanam |

देह-अन्ते तव सायुज्यं देहि मे पार्वती-पते ॥ 
deha-ante tava saayujyaM dehi me paarvatI-pate ||

मुक्तिमिच्छसि चेत्तात विषयान् विषवत्यज |
क्षमार्ज्जवद यातोषसत्यं पीयुषमद्मज || --2, अष्टावक्र गीता

हे प्रिय यदि तुम मुक्ति को चाहते हो तो विषयों को विष के समान छोड़ दो और क्षमा, आर्जव, दया, संतोष और सत्य को अमृत की तरह सेवन करो |

O dear! If you want salvation (to be free from bondage) then leave these subjects like poison; and take forgiveness, rectitude, compassion, contentment and truth as nectar.
