022 – by Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha – Thoughtlessness vs Purity

2473 Views | 2 years ago

We often think a mind that is “free of thoughts” is what makes it peaceful and calm. Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha sets right this erroneous understanding, teaching us how to dive into the pool of our mind and swim with ease and joy.

The Voice of Upanishads is given further clarity and resonance by the Yogasutras of Patanjali, beautifully delivered by Swamiji. It is not eliminating thoughts that makes us unaffected, it is understanding that all thoughts are no different from our own Self. We can force our minds to become still, but as long as impurities remain we will never really Know the Truth, that everything is Consciousness and Consciousness alone. And the two-pronged formula for removing impurities, expounded time and again by our scriptures and Spiritual Masters, is abhyasa (practice) to centralize our personality, and vairagya (dispassion) to reduce the pull of the objective world. We look forward to our compassionate Teacher guiding us further in Satsangs to come.

Verses discussed by Swamiji:
Kathopanishad 2.1.1
Patanjali Yogasutra 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.12
Bhagavad Gīta 6.33, 6.34, 6.35

Swamiji will be discussing 'Voice of Upanishads'. The Global Satsang will be based on Kathopanishad and Mundakopanishad. | Live Satsangs with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST.
