9 Views | 6 months ago

Swamiji begins the discourse with a recapitulation of the verses 18.1 to 12.

Through slide presentations, Swamiji shares the vision of Bhagavad Gita. Some of the salient points presented and discussed are:
Instead of abandoning activity, one can make actions instruments for liberation.
Is it possible to perform actions not motivated by desires?
What is sanga (clinging) and how to remove it?
What is samatva (even mindedness) and how to practice it.
Yajna bhavana – How to apply it in all work?
Surrender--How to make every action a worship of the universal Lord.
How to attain an integrated personality?

Swamiji says that surrender becomes real when one surrenders before the Guru who has identified with the Supreme Self.

Proceeding to the next two verses (13 and 14) of the 18th chapter, Swamiji analyses the five causes for the right fruition of all actions.
