They attain to the eternal peace of God whose sins have been destroyed by direct perception and whose doubts are resolved…!!!

The man who has renounced desire
for the pleasure of objects
of
the external world attains to the felicity
of
God.

His Self is united with God
and
the resulting happiness is therefore eternal.

Lord Krishn sings in Chapter Five of Bhagavad Gita:

“That man becomes one with God
and
enjoys eternal bliss

who is single-mindedly dedicated to him
and
whose heart is free from desire for worldly joys.”

But this happiness comes only to him
who is unattached to pleasures.

Lord Krishn adds:

“Since the pleasures arising from the association
of
senses
with their objects are a cause
of
grief and are transitory,

O son of Kunti,
men of wisdom do not desire them.”

Not only the skin,
but all senses feel the sensation of touch contact.
Seeing is the touch of the eye
as
hearing is the touch of the ear.
Although seeming pleasant to experience,
all the enjoyment arising form
these contacts of senses with their objects
only leads to miserable births.
Moreover, these sensual gratifications are also transient
and
destructible.

So Arjun is told
that
men of discrimination are not entangled in them.

Sri Krishn then enlightens him on the evil
that is embodied by attachment
to
these pleasures.

Lord Krishn sings:

“That man in this world is a true and blessed yogi who,
even before the death of his mortal body,
acquires the ability to withstand the onslaughts
of
passion and anger,

and
conquers them for ever.”

He is the real man (nara=na+raman)-one who is not given
to
physical dalliance.

Even while he is living in the mortal body,
he is capable of facing the fierce urges of passion and anger,
and of
destroying them.
He has achieved selfless action
in the world
and
he is happy.

He has won the happiness of identity with God
in which
there is no grief.

According to divine ordinance,
this happiness is acquired in this mortal,
worldly life itself
and not
after the death of the physical body.

This is what Sant Kabir intends to convey
when
he counsels his disciples to place their hope in this life.

The assurance that salvation comes
after death is false

and
given only by unworthy
and
selfish teachers.

Lord Krishn also says that the man
who succeeds in overcoming his passion and anger
in this life itself
is
the
doer of selfless action in this world,
and
he is blessed with everlasting happiness.

Passion and anger,
attraction and repulsion,
desire for the touching of objects by the senses,
are
our mortal enemies
whom we
have to vanquish and destroy.

Sri Krishn again dwells upon the nature
of
the doer of selfless action in next verse.

“The man who knows his Self
and
whose happiness and peace lie within
merges into God,

and
he attains to the final beatitude that lies in him.”

The man,
who is joyous within,
at peace within,
and
illumined within by his perception of the Self
and
the
identical Universal Spirit,
is
a realized sage who is united with God
and
who attains to his ineffable state.

In other words,
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.

Lord Krishn adds further:

“They attain to the eternal peace of God
whose sins have been destroyed by direct perception
and
whose doubts are resolved,

and
who are single-mindedly concerned
with the good of all beings.’’

He is a man of attainment whose sins have been dispelled
by his vision of God,
whose doubts have been done away with,
and
who is wholeheartedly devoted to the service of all mankind.

Only a man of this elevated state can help others,
for
how can he who is fallen in a ditch himself

help others
to
get out?

So compassion appears as a natural attribute of realized sages
and
they, with their spiritual perception
and
conquest of the senses,
realize the peace
that comes with the final dissolution in God.

Lord Krishn concludes:

“Men who are free from passion and wrath,
who have conquered their mind,
and
who have had a direct perception of God,
see
the all-tranquil Supreme Self

wherever
they look.”
