Whence this text … Two birds … The base …

Dva Suparna ... Two Birds ...

This topic shall discuss the Veda Mantra which tells about two birds (Dva Suparna) as stated below …

 

 द्वा सुपर्णा सयुजा सखाया समानं वृक्षं परिषस्वजाते।

तयोरन्य: पिप्पलं स्वाद्वत्त्यनश्नन्नन्यो अभिचाकशीति॥

समाने वृक्षे पुरुषों निमग्नोऽनाशया शोचति मुह्यमान:।

जुष्टं यदा पश्यत्यन्यमीशमस्य महिमानमिति वीतशोक:॥

यदा पश्य: पश्यते रुक्मवर्णं कर्तारमीशं पुरुषं ब्रह्मयोनिम्।

तदा विद्वान्पुण्यपापे विधूय निरंजन: परमं साम्यमुपैति॥

 

          DVA SUPARNA SAYUJIA SAKHAYA SAMANAM VRKSAM PARISASVAJATE;

TAYORANYAH PIPPALAM SVADVATTYAASNANNANYO ABHICAKASITI.

SAMANE VRKSE PURUSO NIMABNONISAYA SOCATI MUHYAMANAH;

JUSTAM YADA PASYATYANYAMISAMASYA MAHIMANAMITI VITASOKAH.

YADA PASHYAH PASHYATE RUKMA-VARNAM KARTARAM ISHAM PURUSHAM BRAHMA-YONIM

TADA VIDVAN PUNYA-PAPE VIDHUYA NIRANJANAH PARMAM SAMYAM UPAITI.

 

Two birds who also are inseparable companions live on the same tree …

Of them, one eats the fruits of the tree with relish and the other one just looks on, without eating …

Sitting on the same tree the eating bird (i.e. Jiva) by its own ignorance becomes absorbed and feels miserable …

But when it sees the radiant-divinity (Rukma Varnam primarily means divinity, radiance, but also means “golden hue”) of the other bird, it realizes his own greatness and is relieved from its misery …

In same way, one who sees the radiance of Purusha (Lord), the supreme actor, the supreme being, who is the one final source, the supreme Brahman, is the one who becomes liberated (i.e. attain to Kaivalya) …

Such a person becomes wise … He becomes free of both pious and sinful karmic reactions … He becomes pure … He attains a spiritual form like that of the lord itself (When a drop of water merges to the ocean, it becomes the ocean itself) …

 

This text begins from here and just as any other text during the history of the macrocosm (i.e. the macrocosmic creation), also has begun from this Mantra only … This is because of the fact that this Mantra has been the basis of all paths …

Thus, all that needs to be chosen by anyone is “which bird you want to be” …

*** Even when the colors of these two birds are correct, but their shades are not matching the original condition that was self-realized because those colors are not even available on this planet … Plus within the envelope of the red bird, there is a golden hue which is also not shown in above painting …
