015 – Bhagavad Gita – Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha – From Rituals to Knowledge – Part 2

3167 Views | 1 year ago

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha takes us further beyond rituals towards Knowledge, reinforcing that true, wholesome devotion will only be fruitful when grounded in vyavasaayaatmika buddhi (resolute intelligence).
Rituals and assorted religious practices are multifarious, promising all sorts of material and “other-worldly” gains. But what is the real result of these practices? A divergent mind. A mind that is constantly focusing on external gains will never be able to attain the Ultimate, Supreme Reality – our inner Self.
Swamiji brilliantly connects shlokas from Srimad Bhagavatam and Mundakopanishad, with the pivotal verse in Bhagavad Gita, 2.41, giving us step-by-step instructions on how to own and live these shlokas. Bringing forth a new level of clarity on what it really means to have a resolute intelligence, Swamiji gives us a glimpse of what he feels when chanting these verses - “like a thousand full moons arising on a new moon day”.
