023 – Bhagavad Gita – Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha – Steadiness of Intelligence is Yoga

3645 Views | 1 year ago

The true definition of yoga as given in Bhagavad Gita is further expounded by Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha, reinforced by some of the most powerful shlokas enshrined in our ancient scriptures. The most stunning aspect of the whole yogic practice is how simple it all is. There is no great distance to be traversed in this journey. We need only go within ourselves. We do not need to get at anything, we need only understand that we already are THAT which will give us eternal peace, happiness and freedom.

Like an unflickering flame in a windless space, the steady mind is focused and unswerving. Like a sharp arrow piercing through and pulverizing the target, that steady mind dissolves itself into the infinitely expansive SELF. And when firmly established in the Self, the mind and intelligence remain unshakable, resolute and free. The only way to become this Knowledge is to imbibe the words of our spiritual texts, handed to us so lovingly and patiently by our benevolent Spiritual Masters.
