whatever has been done is destroyed without giving its efforts. As good as telling that Iwill type this mail but the mail will vanish after I type I will work but infy will not payme this is also not possible.(The above points are taken from Ramakrishna’s pada dipika commentary onVidyaranya’s Panchadashi as well as from Tattva anusandhaanam, another advaitic work)To conclude (in anumaana form):Dehah na atmaa bhavathi, anyathaa “kritha haanih” “akritha abhyaagama” prasangaathThe body is not the Self, as if it is the Self there are the faults of “actions not givingfruits” and “getting fruits for those actions which are not performed”.Dehah na atmaa, karyatvaat, ghataadi vat (this is how Ramakrishna concludes hiscommentary to the above sloka of Panchadashi)The body is not the Self as it is an effect like pot (any effect is not the Self as the Self cannever be caused or it can never become an effect).Hope the above part clearly and convincingly proves that the body is not the Self and thusthe jeeva of charvaaka (which is the body) is wrong, against all pramaanas and thusshould be renounced (renunciation of the thought that “I am the body”).
Jeeva as per Charvaakas - 2
Hari OMWe can start analysis of the other types of charvaakas who claim that “indriyaas or senseorgans are the Self” and “pranaas are the Self” – the logic for this will be very similar toone another (if sense organs are proved to be not-Self, then pranas also can be proved asnot-Self). As we have already discussed about body being not the Self – it is very mucheasy to prove the sense organs and prana are not the Self. Not getting into details over here as to why the Self is not the body etc. but shortly wantto mention as to why the Self is not the sense organs (either individual or their mixture).Self is not individual sense organs because sense organs are mere instruments which areinsentient whereas self is sentient. When an object is made up of parts which areinsentient, that object is also insentient alone. Body has various parts of legs, hands etc.which are insentient – therefore the body itself is insentient.Since sense organs are individually insentient, therefore their mixture too has to be
