Vedic rites and ceremonies ended increating confusions and delusions in the minds of mankindin the matter of right action and wrong action and ininflicting only pains and sufferings on beings.Then, only out of sheer compassion the Lord of Akshardham, Lord Shri Hari himself descended andassumed the Incarnation in the divine human form on earthand delivered, for the redemption of mortals the body of teachings, enshrined in Shikshapatri on which I dailyreverently meditate. (1)Oh, ye Shikshapatri, I meditate on you, whose birth hasbeen missioned to wash the filth and dirt of human beings,plunged and sunk in the mire of worldly entanglements,being rolled and tumbled into it, and to purify them and todispel the dense darkness of ignorance. (2)This Shikshapatri is an unique pencil of collyrium thatremoves inner darkness. It, therefore, deserves to beresorted to and assimilated by all for attaining the innervision of true knowledge.
