Choosing between Adarsh & Ishta

 

The word ideology is termed as Adarsha in Sanskrit. It means to follow an idea in the things that one has to do in his life. It has an impersonal element. But when one follows a personality , it is called as Ishta. Suppose someone’s ideology is to serve humanity , this service is an impersonal element.

Social service is not a thing you can love or through which you can express your heart’s sorrows and pleasures. You cannot make it the best of ideals, the ultimate ideal of your life. Therefore, social service is an impersonal entity and it is an ideology. I should do everything for my liberation and also for the welfare of humanity. This is ideology.

 

Meaning of Ideology

The other meaning of the word ideology is mirror. When we look at it, we can observe ourselves. Each one should follow his ideology. Human life is an ideological flow. One can award recognition to another to the extent that one even follows his ideology. The life of man devoid of ideology is lacking. Whatever power you have, you must utilise it to the maximum. After you have done your best and there is still need for more power, then God will give you more.

All powers come from God; whether it is physical, mental or spiritual. The Lord grants these powers to those who are engaged in working for the welfare of others and are performing benevolent deeds.You will not have to ask for powers. The second important thing is courage. Courage comes according to power; they go together. A man who is powerless is also a coward.

 

How Ideology Relates Ishta

What is the relationship between hat is the relationship between ishta and ideology? Without ishta one cannot establish himself in ideology . For example: About 35 years ago, a war was going on between two countries, the citizens of which had the same religion (Buddhist). When the soldiers went to war, their mothers used to pray to Buddha to save the lives of their respective sons.

What will Buddha do?

Save this man or that man?

Both have the same ishta but both parties have totally forgotten their ideology. If they were established in ideology , they would not have gone to war. So man should follow both ideology and ishta .

 

Ishta is Important

Ishta tells us about our ideology . We remember our ideology through ishta. If somebody says that he has no ishta, it means he has no courage. Without establishing oneself in his ishta, man cannot become an ideologist. What needs to be done by the spiritual aspirant? The aspirant has to remove this veil of ego. If you remove the ego, you will become a devotee and surely you will reach Divinity . There is nothing more to be done. We have to do mental invocation and not extroversial worship. You surrender your mind to the Divine and the rest will be taken care of. Those who are ready to centre their minds on Him will be established in their ishta. They will be victorious.
