  • Uparati - The Quality of Withdrawal from Sensory Objects

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Swamiji, in this talk, enlightens us about the qualifications and pre-requisites of a seeker. In Spirituality, one focusses on one’s own mind, intelligence and ego. The effort is to reach at the substratum of all these, the Self.

We have five sense organs through which we perceive all objects of the universe. Whether one is seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting or touching, all the experiences are, in reality, emerging in the sphere of one’s own mind. These experiences are caused in the mind, and they subsist and dissolve in one’s own mind.

When we understand this, a withdrawal takes place. Uparati is the art and process of closing the eyes and observing the mind and the mind processes. It is a withdrawal, out of option.

Mentally resting on our own inside, makes our personality restful and invigorated. A small measure of this spiritual pursuit goes a long way in saving us from a great danger of the world.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

स्वल्पमप्यस्य धर्मस्य त्रायते महतो भयात् ।।

Bhagavad Gita 2.40
