[gita-talk] Re: Why so much importance is given to The Lotus Feet of The Lord?

 

Respected Sir

It has been many years that The Lord has graced me with opportunities to listen
to discourses from ascetics & mahatmas and have been reading spiritual books. I
have remembered that I should have attraction and love towards The Lotus Feet of
The Lord. The Lord Shri Ram Ji also says to his friend Sugreev,

"Janani Janak Bandhu Sut Daara, Tanu Dhanu Bhawan Surhrud Parivara
Sabkai Mamta Taag Batori, Mam Pad MANAHE BANDH Ber Dori ....Us
Sajjan Mam ur Buse......"

I have not been able to grasp the meaning, value and esteem of The Lord's Lotus
Feet. Why so much importance is given to The Lotus Feet of The lord in the
scriptures, discourses and even by the Lord
Himself.

Kindly enlighten me. I know that once i will be able to learn, I shall be able
to take an actual step in the direction where I have been roaming around for all
these years.

Regards

Man Mohan Batra

because as per human anatomy the whole human body and its weight lies
on the feet and when we surrender to god, sharanagati we touch the
feet of elders, wash it during some rituals, same way when we
surrender to lotus feet, because we can not touch any other part of
god and seek benediction, if we catch somebody's feet and beg to
forgive with tears in our eyes, they will definitely forgive our
mistake..i india it is considered the way of confession, like in
church they kneel down and beg to forgive, same way when we catch the
lotus feet of god and beg to forgive he will definitely forgive...but
we should have faith shraddha SHRADDHA HI PARAMA GATIH says krishna
in geeta, what ever we do we should put our heart and soul, swami
vivekananda used to say even when we clean utensil ( brass ) it should
shine so that we can see our face as reflection, that is one form of
worship, our intention, conviction should be with out blemish
hence with out any second thought just surrender to the lotus feet of
god with out any shadow of doubt in it and he will rescue
god bless you

Hari Om

Lord Himself has never stated anywhere , to my knowledge, that His devotees
should give importance to His Lotus feet, including in the couplet quoted by
you. It is Devotees of Lord who give importance to His feet out of respect. Lord
makes friends ( Sakha ) not slaves. In Ramcharitmanas, Lord has friendship
relationship with SUGREEVA ( BHOGI) , Vibheesana ( Sadhak) and NISHADRAJ GUHA (
Yogi/ Siddha). Lord loves SAKHA BHAAV ( sentiment of friendship). Arjuna was
also friend only of Lord Krishna. However, devotees of Lord are generally seen
to have a liking for DAAS sentiment ( Slave). When you have a sentiment of DAAS
vis a vis Paramatma then which place can be more appropriate than Lotus Feet ?
Hence the importance of Lotus Feet is from Bhakta point of view.

Rather than thinking excessively about Feet or Face etc of Lord, you may
establish MINENESS ( MAMTA) with Lord in any manner. Some like to be friend of
Lord, some like to be mother, some like to be friend, some pupil and some like
to be DAAS (slave). Lord Hanumaan liked to be DAAS of Lord.

Jai Shree Krishna

The meaning of Lotus feet becomes clear when you are stuck up and can not find a rational and logical explanation for what is happening or what is troubling you.
One faces pain (psychological discomfort) and uncertainty in daily life. By default, mind adjusts with pain and uncertainty by some ideas, explanations. It invents God, soul also in this process.

When at some point, adjustment becomes difficult or no explanation is able to assuage the uneasiness of pain and uncertainty, one takes to Gurus, scriptures, other books, techniques and so on. Unless one is alert , they also prove to be adjustment material for the mind. Now when one rejects every support, one is face to face with pain and uncertainty. One sees that sense of incompleteness can not be undone. The support of explanations was compounding the pain and uncertainty.

Brain has no option but to absorb them as they are. When the support of explanations is not there, pain and uncertainty are automatically absorbed.

Suddenly, the ground(the Lotus feet) is realized.

It simply means

I AM GOD'S and GOD IS MY VERY OWN
When God is ours, our entire focus will change, it will be on God and not on the world. Worldly matters will no longer worry us or concern us. "Yat gatvaa na nivartante, tat dhaam paramam mama" God's home will become our only home. God will become the only one in our life. Once we give in to the Lotus Feet of the Lord, nothing worldly can touch us. We will no longer be trapped by the illusory powers (maya) of the Lord. Lord will NEVER LEAVE US. Do you know anyone who will stay with us all the time? Let our minds only be on the Lotus Feet of the Lord - He Naath ! Here Mere Naath ! Let me never forget you. Let my mind never leave His Lotus Feet.

Meera Das, Ram Ram
