Mighty Performer, Enjoyer and Sufferer

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Taking up spirituality after retirement from professional life is a wrong viewpoint says Swamiji. He shares the examples of young Nachiketas and Prahlada who sought Spiritual enlightenment and refuge at the feet of the Lord.

Spiritual instruction is not relevant only to the old but to the young as well! It makes us a magnificent performer, enjoyer and sufferer. The mind rises to such an exalted position that it is unaffected by fear or negative results.

All activities at every level are propelled and guided by nature through the 3 gunas. As we understand this, there is no ownership, as everything is provided by God. The knower of truth has no ahankara of doership. The ignorant man however sees himself as the doer.

Gunas interacting with Prakriti, propel the individual to act. Nature has its own rhythm and understanding that one is also functioning as part of this nature, the mind becomes expansive and great. A knower sees the world, the society at large as his concern. Elevation of the ego to unlimited expansion makes him the mightiest performer, enjoyer and sufferer.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

प्रकृतेः क्रियमाणानि गुणैः कर्माणि सर्वशः ।
अहङ्कारविमूढात्मा कर्ताहमिति मन्यते ।।

Bhagavad Gita 3.27

तत्त्ववित्तु महाबाहो गुणकर्मविभागयोः ।
गुणा गुणेषु वर्तन्त इति मत्वा न सज्जते ॥

Bhagavad Gita 3.28
