The secret of desire fulfilment revealed by the immortal Lord Hanuman

The secret of desire fulfilment revealed by the immortal Lord Hanuman

Lord Hanuman had come to meet Mathangs after 41 years and first day of the holy Charan Pooja was going on. First session of the Charan Pooja was conducted early in the morning for a Mathang man called Basantha. Second session of the Charan Pooja was conducted after breakfast for a Mathang woman called Charitha. As per the rituals, first Lord Hanuman imparted supreme knowledge to Yajmaan (host) by telling her mysteries of universe. When a layer of illusion got removed from her soul, she became eligible for the Arpanam ritual. Baba Mathang offered the Arpanam for her in the form of a basket of fruits. When ritual of Arpanam was over, Lord Hanuman asked her wish. She wished for supreme knowledge which leads to Moksha. Lord Hanuman gave her Prasadam of supreme knowledge by telling her the secret of existence.

 

When Lord Hanuman finished telling the secret of existence, a question-answer session followed. Urmi who was the Hotar of ceremony, moderated the discussion.

 

The last question of the session came from a Mathang called Dhanushka. He stood up and asked with his palms joined, “O Lord Hanuman, you told that when we desire pleasure, we indirectly desire pain as well. Why is that so? Why can’t we desire pleasure alone? Why are there sorrows at all in this universe? Why can’t there be happiness alone?”

 

Dhanushka asked this question hesitatingly because Lord Hanuman had already answered this question, and the answer given by Lord Hanuman had satisfied everyone, except him. Dhanushka’s hesitant act of asking this question met with chuckles from the young Mathangs present in the assembly.
