    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Swamiji elucidates in detail how the human birth is nothing but the outward expression of the inward, subtle, supra-material and supra-energial Power and Presence called the Self or Soul.

The worship of God who is considered infinitely distant and invisible, starts with religious practices, external worships, divine chantings and the like. Gradually, the love and reliance on the External God is reflected in making all worldly and secular activities divinized and Godly. This leads to the maturity of the mind and intelligence to have a devotion which is from the outward God to the spiritual and philosophical discovery of the Indwelling God.

Bhagavad Gita describes the progression in devotion from the part time religious or worldly secular activities to the wholesome reliance and resting on God, by fixing the mind and intelligence always on the Indwelling God. Krishna assures that with such a wholesome attitude, His Grace blesses such a devotee with the Supreme Abode. Thereafter, all activities are performed with wholesome devotion and sole reliance on God alone. This is the Secret of Spiritual Life that Swamiji elaborates in this talk, where the devotee continues to live and perform in the world, displaying and manifesting divinity in and through all activities.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

सर्वकर्माण्यपि सदा कुर्वाणो मद्‍व्यपाश्रय: ।
मत्प्रसादादवाप्नोति शाश्वतं पदमव्ययम् ।।

Bhagavad Gita 18.56
