CONCEPTS & EXTRACTS IN HINDUISM By :: Pt. Santosh Kumar Bhardwaj
स्वयं को पहचानना बोध है। स्वयं क्या है? यह अपना आत्मरूप है। मैं कौन था कौन हूँ क्या होऊँगा। यह जानना बोध है। 
महात्मा बुद्ध को बोध हुआ, वे बोधित्स्व कहलाये और पीपल का वृक्ष बन गया बोधि वृक्ष। उनका कहना था कि वीणा के तार उतने ही कसो जितने से मधुर, कर्णप्रिय मधुर स्वर-ध्वनि-सुर प्रवाहित हो। मन को उद्वेलित-आनन्दित करे-आल्हादित-प्रफुल्लित करे-उत्साहित करे-उमंग से भर दे-मन नाचने को करे और सारा कलुष-मेल-द्वेष निकल जाये।
Self recognition-identification-understanding is Bodh. Who am I, who was I, what will I be? this type of retrospection helps one in understanding the self.
Mahatma Buddh attained this state and the doctrine is called Bodhitsv. The Peeple tree under, which he achieved asceticism is called Bodhi Vraksh. He said that the strings of Veena should be tuned in such a way that they produce melodious-rhythmic-touching tunes-sounds-music, which is liked-admired by the ears or the one who listens to them. He was addressing the human behaviour. Our dealings with others, should be aimed at giving pleasure to them. It should be capable of releasing tensions. One should be able to produce a cordial-pleasant atmosphere. The inner self should become free from defects-vices-wickedness.
इन्द्रिय संयम के लिए ज्ञान ही काफी नहीं है, अपितु दृढ संकल्प-निश्चयात्मक बुद्धि, विवेक भी चाहिए। 
Human incarnation is meant for performing for the sake of purification and salvation to facilitate assimilation in the Almighty.
आत्म बोध : भगवान् के नवम् अवतार महात्मा बुद्ध ने मानव शरीर को गन्दगी-मैल-मल का घर-जनक बताया है। यह शरीर नष्टप्राय है। जो पैदा हुआ है वो मरेगा अवश्य। माँ के गर्भ में वह मल-मूत्र से घिरा पड़ा थाकेश, रोम, नख, दांत, त्वक्, मांस, स्नायु, अस्थि-मज्जा, यकृत, क्लोमक, प्लीहा, फुस्फुस, आत, उदरस्थ मल-मूत्र, पित्त, कफ, रक्त, पसीना, चर्बी, लार आदि, बदबू के घर, नष्ट प्राय सड़ने वाली वस्तुएं हैं।इसमें सौंदर्य की कल्पना तो स्वयं के साथ धोखा-अन्याय है।सौंदर्य तो सिर्फ चेतना में है। स्नान-सफाई-इत्र-फुलेल-उबटन शरीर की प्राकृतिक बदबू को दबा-छिपा नहीं पाते। कितना ही इत्र से छिडको, फिर  भी इसकी दुर्गंध नहीं जाने वाली। कितना ही सुंदर वस्त्रों में ढांको, तो भी इसका असौंदर्य नहीं ढकता है। कितने ही सोने के आभूषण पहनो, हीरे-जवाहरात से सजाओ, तो भी मांस-मज्जा अस्थियाँ वैसी की वैसी ही बनी रहेंगी। मृत्यु  के पश्चात चेतना नष्ट हो जाती है। आत्मा शरीर को  छोड़ देती है। नातेदार-रिश्तेदार, बंधु-बान्धव, मित्र-परिचित सभी शरीर को शीघ्रातिशीघ्र श्मशान में ले जाने की कोशिश करते हैं। शरीर  में स्थित चेतन सौंदर्य का द्योतक है। चेतन को ध्यान-मनन, पूजा पाठ के माध्यम से परमात्मा में लगाओ।चेतन परमात्मा का अभिन्न अंग है। परमात्म बोध धीरे-धीरे शरीर से तादात्म्य-सम्बन्ध तोड़ देगा और चेतन को परमात्मतत्व से  जोड़ देगा। वही  परम सुन्दर स्वरूप है और वही परमानन्द है।
