Bhagavad Gita sings:
There is first destruction of perversions-alien impulses
such as attachment and aversion,
then the emergence of perception,
and finally submersion in the all-pervading ocean of final beatitude.
He is a superior man
who exerts inner (rather than external) control
over his senses,
so that his mind is freed from passions,
who does his duty in a state of total desirelessness.
Self alone is true and eternal.
True satsang comes about
when the mind reins itself in
from all externals
dwells with the Self.
This adherence to truth is cultivated
Through births, low and high,
this Soul has been making his physical journey
an unknown beginning.
Action is something that completes this journey.
If there is yet to be another birth,
the journey is still incomplete.
The seeker is still on his way,
traveling through bodies.
A journey is complete only when the destination is reached.
[Revered Swami Adgadanandji Paramhans]
