Based on Bhagavad Gita talk given by Ma during Malaysia Janan Yajna at SIRD, Malaysia on 21 September 2023 .

In this enlightening session based on Bhagavad Gita, Ma explains in simple terms how one can attain a calm and stable mind. She discusses what the attitude of a seeker must be in all activities and interactions.

Bhagavad Gita says that one must do all activities excellently well, being free of delusional clinging. A seeker must make a practice of performing activities without being attached to the work, to his own ideas about the work and to the results of the activity. Remembering that everything is designed by the Supreme, one must offer all activities to the Supreme. The pursuit is also to prepare the mind to accept both positive and negative results gracefully.

How can activity be done without getting attached and bound? While performing work, if one has an equal vision or attitude to success & failure, and has a purified heart, restrained senses, and if one perceives the same Self in all beings, then he will not be bound or affected by any activity. If one is able to abandon all the delusional clinging to the work and is able to dedicate all actions to the Lord, such a man does not court bondage.

Spiritual knowers also do all activities with their body, mind and intelligence. But being free of delusional clinging, they do all activities for self-purification. They do not delight in pleasant occurrences and also do not get depressed by unpleasant results. They remain stable, established in Brahman. Their minds are established in Samatva (equal vision). The sadhana of a seeker is to practice Samatva in all thoughts, speech, actions and interactions. Ma concludes by urging listeners to cultivate Satvika qualities more and more, by which one can gradually attain supreme peace, contentment and constant abidance in the Self.
