Shree Kapila Acharya

The Father of Patterns

He introduced patterns (five-pattern) to explain the Cosmic secrets to the highest intellectuals to the simple layman and a child. He is the founder of the first School for learning in Kashi, Vaaranasi, India.

Modern scientific method is a logical approach in solving problems by observing and collecting data, formulating hypothesis, testing hypothesis and formulating theories that are supported by data. Scientists then attempt to find relationships and patterns from the data (Reference- Modern Chemistry- by Raymond E. Davis , Regina Frey, Mickey Sarquis, Jerry L. Sarquis,  Holt, Renehart, Winston  Publisher-2006.ISBN- 0-03-073546-7 (page 29-30)

Kapilacharya like ancient Rishis used a different approach of not relying on the senses collected data. This is the greatest contribution of mankind because, the sensorial data is very biased in its measurements and heance we see scientific theories disproved when sophisticated and subtler means of collecting data are discovered. This is not the problem of the ancient Indian scientific approach (Universal Selftual Pattern - 2015).

His Samkya method of viewing (Darshana) and understanding Vedic supreme knowledge, was used by Sree-Krishna in Bhagavad Gita and other highest Conscious people. Overtime, this five-pattern method was expanded into Ashtanga-Yoga by Sage Patanjali. Again after many years, this great knowledge was simplified into other views like Nyaya, Vaiseshika, Mimamsa and Vedanta.

Unfortunately, we now have the Vedic knowledge completely diluted and mis interpreted from the Samkhya method. Uni5 is a renewal of understanding this knolwedge for living a peaceful and meaningful and happy life.

Kapila- Acharya- is one of the greatest teachers of Bhaarath. He gave to Bhaarath, the  pattern of energy evolution, the Pancha Bhootas.

He gave this pattern based teaching to efficiently teach complexity of the life. His mother Devahuti was his first student. He taught the Unifying pattern first to his mother, which latter called as Samkhya (to unify or integrate) Philosophy. The teaching was given when his mother expressed inspite of all material comforts, she still feels incomplete in life.

The Samkhya school is wrongly considered as dualistic and atheistic. It is called as dualistic because it differentiates Consciousness from Energy. It is atheistic because he denies the existance of a personal God.

After that he established the first Gurukula school system of teaching the patterns in five years from age of 8 to 13. This continued as a the teacher-student-heritage (Guru-Shishya parampara).

Buddhist sources present Kapila as a well-known philosopher whose students built the city of Kapilavastu, according to one tradition the birthplace of the Buddha. Birth place of Kapilacharya is Pat Jhelda.Rarh.

 

Maharshih KapilAcharyah Kritajno Medineepatih                  |

Tripadas Tredas-adhyaksho Maha-Shringah Kritaantakrit

||Vishnu Sahasranamam-SLOKA-57||

Maharshi Kapilaachaaryah, with gratitude (Kritajno), the one who has mastered the entire knowledge (Medineepatih), the one who is the knower of all the created objects,  guide us to cross the three realms (Body Mind and Intelligence) (Tripadas)to  blissfully (Treedas) preside (witness/experience) (Adhyaksho)  the highest state (Maha-Shringah) where one annihilates all actions (Sakthi-Awareness-Energy) to the Eternal actionless state (Consciousness-Para Brahmam) Kritaantakrit.

Sources - Wikipedia

 The Samkhya system is  an exponent of an evolutionary theory of matter beginning with primordial Energy. In evolution, (Functional) Prakriti is transformed and differentiated into multiplicity of forms or objects.

Evolution culminates in dissolution. In dissolution the physical existence of all the worldly objects returns to Prakriti, the undifferentiated, primordial Energy. This is the cycle of evolution and dissolution, which is very similar to the modern Science.

The twenty-four constituents

Samkhya theorizes that Prakriti is the source of the perceived world of creation. It is pluoripotent  that evolves itself successively into twenty four tattvas or principles. The evolution itself is possible because Prakriti is self-driven by ints own inherent pressure or nature (Gunas) :–

  • Sattva – a quality of primordial un-differentiated potential to dynamically flow into vairety. This is symbolized as white.
  • Rajas – a quality of dynamic activity, symbolized as red;
  • Tamas – a quality of rest (lethargy) which is totally densed Energy and so symbolized as black.

Every Indian festival is unique in its own way. Some of the larger pan-Indian festivals like Holi and Diwali get more attention and people very well know about them. However, even the local festivals like the Kolayat cattle fair in Bikaner, Rajasthan have their own significance. It comes with its own collection, legends and rituals. The Kolayat fair is a festival that takes place in between the 17 and 22nd of November (Kartik Purnima) every year in the honour of an ancient sage named Kapila.

Bindu Sarovar is glorified with the incarnation of Lord Sri Maha Vishnu as Sri Kapila Mahamuni on its banks, sanctified as the Tapo Bhoomi of Sage Kardhama Prajapathi, the holy place where Sri Kapilaacharya had preached Moksha Gnana [Saankhya philosophy] to his Mother, and celestial place where Devahuti attained salvation.Literally Bindu means a drop and Sarovar means a lake. It was known as a Lake of Drops [Bindu Sarovar] where tears of Lord Sri Maha Vishnu are believed to have fallen in this lake. Bindu Sarovar is considered as holy as Triveni Sangam at Allahabad. There are three sacred water ponds around here known as Gnana Vapi, Alpa river and Bindu Sarovar. Generally we find people taking bath in Bindu Sarovar before performing the sacred rites which is considered as highly meritorious.
