Prabhata Rashmih – The Unique Philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita

Evennizing the mind

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

  • Evennizing the mind

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

In this talk, Swamiji speaks about cultivating an even attitude to Sukha and duhkha. Though we feel that interactions with the objects bring about sukha-duhkhas, in reality, the interactions proceed from the mind, they subsist on the mind, they also conclude in the mind. So, the sukha-duhkhas do not have a ground or a basis other than the mind. Mind is the source of sukha-duhkhas and mind itself holds the redress for them.

So, instead of having a preference and prejudice towards both, we have to start developing an even and harmonious attitude towards them. When the mind is established in Saamya (evenness), it is established in the Supreme Truth.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

नैवं पापमवाप्स्यसि ।

(Bhagavad Gita 2.38)

इहैव तैर्जितः सर्गो येषां साम्ये स्थितं मनः ।
निर्दोषं हि समं ब्रह्म तस्माद्ब्रह्मणि ते स्थिताः ।।

(Bhagavad Gita–5.19)
