Poojya Swamiji is taking us through a decisive phase in our Bhagavad Gita voyage, the ‘Sthita Prajna Prakarana’ – calling it a complete Spiritual treatise in itself. Describing Sthita Prajna as one who after relinquishing all desires of mind, remains absolutely content in his own within, Swamiji calls it a state of ‘objectless consciousness or objectless comprehension’ – a beautiful wakeful slumber. Who else other than one with the experience of Sthita Prajnata and who conducts himself in the light of that experience, will be able to explain it to others? We offer our humble prostrations at the Holy feet of Poojya Swamiji and look forward to his continued guidance through the finer intricacies of the Subject!
After listening to Krishna’s elucidation on Yoga, Arjuna raises a beautiful enquiry on Sthita Prajna and Sthita Dhee, thereby demonstrating his tenacity in listening to and absorbing Krishna’s message. This should become a constant inspiration for all of us, to be like Arjuna while listening to our Poojya Swamiji’s teachings.
Verses explained by Swamiji:
Bhagavad Gita 2.52, 2.53, 2.54, 2.55
Yogavasistha Ramayanam (Portions from Siddha Gita) 5.8.11, 5.8.12, 5.8.14

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
