जिजीविषेत् शतं समाः

जिजीविषेत् शतं समाः

कुर्वन्नेवेह कर्माणि जिजीविषेत् शतं समाः।
एवं त्वयि नान्यथेतोऽस्ति न कर्म लिप्यते नरे ॥ (Ishawasya Verse.2)

इस संसार में कर्म करते हुए ही मनुष्य को सौ वर्ष जीने की इच्छा करनी चाहिये।इस प्रकार कर्म करते हुए ही जीने की इच्छा करने से मनुष्य में कर्म का लेप नहीं होता।

जिजीविषेत्, Upanishad tell us to desire for life not for the death. Life is a gift of God to be used for the service to the society. The attachment to worldly objects brings sorrow, bonding and disturbances. Attachments to them brings death and Detachment brings life. 

Whatever you have, enjoy but with detachment. तेन त्यक्तेन भुंजीथा:।त्याग द्वारा इसका उपभोग करना। 

Look at a Dog and a Crow. Dog is a faithful animal to its master but when it gets a bread, it will hold under the foot, look around and eats if another dog is not around. If another dog comes, it will bark, fight and ensures that it runs away. But look a crow, though not liked by humans for its unpleasant calls kraa kraa, but when a crow finds a bread, it will start cawing and call other crows to share the bread. And they eat the bread altogether peacefully without any fight. 

What do you prefer? An instinct of a dog or of a crow? 

शतं जीवेम शरद: But with the mantra “तेन त्यक्तेन भुंजीथा:”, जिसने छोड़ा उसने पाया।  मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्‌ ॥ Do not covet, for whose is wealth?
