Gurunathar’s Message Moolam Star #14

Gurunathar’s Divine Message Moolam Pooja 19-04-2006

would like to convey something. I would like to clearly explain the state of “Motcham”. There are some misconceptions about this. I was astonished to hear a person describe Motcham as a heaven where all his desires would be granted and he would be in a state of bliss. This seems like a naive explanation. Another person described it as overcoming rebirth and reaching Godhood in heaven. This is also wrong. It is necessary to have an accurate definition and for this I am going to use a simple English word “Liberation”. Liberation in English means”Freedom”. Freedom from what? Generally there is a misconception that Motcham is liberation from the physical body. Even though the soul is liberated from the physical body, due to desires and attachments one has to be reborn. Therefore this is not Motcham. Motcham means the liberation from desires and attachments which bog us down in this life. The reasons which make us struggle are (1) Needles desires and bonds and (2) Emotional attachments. Once emotional attachment disappears the other desires decrease. If we would think about this we would want rebirth to satisfy unfulfilled desires. These do not help you to attain Motcham.If we renounce everything does it lead to Motcham? No, not even this. If we truly realize the connection between the Soul and the Being, this will lead to Motcham. When we contemplate this connection deeply, the two merge into one. (Aham Bhramasmi). This gives the complete explanation.Control and observation of breath, performing rituals or Homams do not in themselves lead to Motcham. Introspection is necessary. If we tune all our activities to our spiritual needs, this is freedom. When this is achieved, one can realize Motcham. Because from that moment onwards, one can be assured that he is released from the cycle of birth and death.
