Natural Characteristics (Svabhava) of Human Order – When we look at the different orders in nature, we find that each order has a certain value. In a fundamental way, this is the ‘ usefulness ‘ or ‘ participation ‘ of the order in existence. This ‘ value ‘ or ‘ participation ‘ is also referred to as a ” natural characteristic “. The characteristic ‘ the order displays ‘ is natural to itself.
This is the same as the value of the entity, or its participation also called ‘ svabhava “. The svabhava of material order is ‘composition/decomposition ‘, of Plant/bio order is ‘ composition/decomposition ‘and to nurture or worsen other pranic units. The overlay of animal order and order can be understood in two aspects body and self. The Gabbay of animal order is Composition/decomposition, nurture/worsen in body, and non-cruelty, cruelty in T. The svabhav of the human order is Composition/decomposition, nurture/worsen in body, and perseverance, bravery, and generosity in ‘I’.
Similar to the case in animals, the human body also belongs to the plant/bio order and hens have the same svabhava or value / natural characteristic as the pranic order. It either nurtures or worsens other pranic units. As in the example above, when I digest the vegetable, 1 absorbs the plant and it worsens, while my body is nurtured. The svabhaval value of the self (‘I’) in human beings is perseverance (dhirata), bravery (virata), and generosity (udarata).
Perseverance (dhirata): Being assured that the all-encompassing solution is to understand and live in harmony at all levels of existence, living with this commitment without any perturbation.
Bravery (virata): Being assured that the all-encompassing solution is to understand and live in harmony at all levels and I am ready to help others to have the right understanding. This is the commitment to help others have the right understanding of harmony and living at all levels of existence.
Generosity (udarata): Being assured that the all-encompassing solution is to understand and live in harmony at all four levels and I am ready to invest myself, my body, and wealth to help others have the right understanding.
Human Beings are not Living as per this Natural Characteristic
Even though we have a svabhava, we are not living according to this. This is the basic reason for the contradiction and conflict that we see in human beings. This is what leads to a state of unhappiness.
Only when we live according to our basic human characteristics as mentioned above, do we have definite character, otherwise, it is not definite, it is uncertain, unlike the other three orders as discussed above.
|Material order||Soil, water, metals, etc.||Composition/decomposition|
|Pranic order||Plants and trees||Composition/decomposition + nurture/worsen|
|Animal order||Animals and birds||(Composition/decomposition, nurture/worsen) in body + (noncruelty, cruelty) in ‘I’|
|Human order||Human beings||(Composition/decomposition, nurture/worsen) in body + (perseverance, bravery, generosity) in ‘I’|
