Detect Laziness in Oneself

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

  • Detect Laziness in Oneself

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

In this talk, Swamiji speaks about laziness. He says that the source of laziness is not the body.

In Bhagavad Gita and Uddhava Gita, Krishna spends a lot of time in explaining the three gunas, sattva, rajas, and tamas. One has to examine and assess the proportion of the three gunas in oneself.

Tendency to escape is laziness; the desire and the motivation to work is rajo guna. Trying to do work without looking for approval, with vibrant concern for everyone and everything is sattva guna. One has to detect the prominent guna in oneself.

Shlokas chanted in the talk:

निद्रालस्यप्रमाद

Bhagavad Gita 18.39

न हि कश्चित्क्षणमपि जातु तिष्ठत्यकर्मकृत् ।
कार्यते ह्यवश: कर्म सर्व: प्रकृतिजैर्गुणै: ॥

Bhagavad Gita 3.5

यत्तु कृत्स्नवदेकस्मिन्कार्ये सक्तमहैतुकम् ।
अतत्त्वार्थवदल्पं च तत्तामसमुदाहृतम् ॥

Bhagavad Gita 18.22
