Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha

03 – Yoga of Enlightened Action | Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 | Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha

1670 Views | 4 months ago

In this talk, Swamiji continues to elaborate on the initial verses of the third chapter of Bhagavad Gita where Arjuna humbly questions Krishna about the path of Auspiciousness (Shreyas).

Swamiji states that a Guru prescribes that path to the shishya, treading which he will be led to the auspicious goal, just like Krishna guided Arjuna. He explains how this knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation through the Guru Shishya Parampara (lineage of teachers and pupils). The Guru prescribes the path most suitable for the student, says Swamiji. So, Krishna instructed Arjuna to keep the mind focussed, drop all delusional clinging and fight.

Swamiji quotes from various verses of other chapters of the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads, to connect the message of the 3rd chapter. To clarify Arjuna's question about paths of Jnana and Karma, Swamiji elaborately explains how both the paths have the same purpose of purification of the mind to attain the Ultimate Goal. Explaining Jnana Yoga, Swamiji discusses the non-dual knowledge where all differences are dissolved in the Transcendental Truth.

Discussing Bhava Shuddhi, Swamiji gives us a clue how to remove narrow and constricted thoughts by changing the mindset. He says that when it is constantly and sincerely practised, gradually and naturally all actions are performed not for desire fulfillment, but as an expression of fulfillment.
