Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha

10 – Bhagavad Gita – Chapter 3 – By Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha – Yoga of Enlightened Action

383 Views | 7 months ago

Swamiji begins by discussing Sri Krishna’s pronouncement that those people who imbibe and practice the teaching of karma yoga diligently and without finding flaws in it or raising arguments, will also get liberated through the actions they perform. Those who do not practice the same will suffer from delusion and will not grasp the knowledge and will have loss of the power of discrimination.

Krishna says further that even the wise people, Knowers, work according to their svabhava, according to their nature (Gunas) without identifying with it. All individuals function according to their natural tendencies, prakriti.

Swamiji discusses Sri Krishna’s crucial message that When the indriyas (senses) come in contact with sense objects, it causes Raga-Dvesha (likes and dislikes). Krishna cautions that these are the enemies and one should not come under their sway, not feel undue clinging or hate. The Sadhana is to sublimate the attraction and repulsion every time they arise.

Sri Krishna says firmly that Rajo Guna causes kama (desire) and krodha (anger) and one must take responsibility for it. Swamiji explains that one cannot satiate the fire of desire with more and more objects, it will only fan the fire. A spiritual aspirant must seek to increase the Sattva Guna to counter this.
