324 Views | 4 months ago

In this absorbing talk, Swamiji continues to analyze and discuss the qualities enumerated by Sri Krishna in the 13th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. By his interesting and thought-provoking analysis, the listeners are compelled to dig deep and assess the qualities present in themselves. One comes to understand that each quality is to be deeply contemplated upon, loved and assimilated in one’s own personality.

With the help of various examples, Swamiji explains some of the qualities and brings further clarity to the listeners. Beautifully explaining Atma Vinigrahah (Self-mastery), Swamiji says that normally we become slaves to external objects and situations. But when the intelligence is anchored in the Soul and guides the mind which in turn controls the senses, one becomes the master of the world. Such a seeker is no longer pulled by the attractions of the world objects. Such a mind heeds the inner voice. Showing some visual slides, Swamiji clarifies this point further.

Explaining the verses, Swamiji elucidates that a seeker of Truth will need to cultivate the quality of Vairagya or Dispassion towards the world objects. He will also have to consciously prevent the mind and intelligence from developing ego and a sense of doership. Swamiji says that a seeker will have to repeatedly introspect over the ills of the world which in turn will increase his/her dispassion.
