“The attributes of the man who has risen above, his manner of life, and the way by which he transcends the three properties…..?”

Having known that after a man is liberated from the three properties
(sattwa, rajas, and tamas),
his Soul tastes the nectar of immortality,
Arjun asks three questions from Lord Krishn
in
Chapter 14
of
Bhagavad Gita.

Arjun said:

“Tell me, O Lord,
the attributes of the man

who has risen above the three properties,
his manner of life,
and
the way by which

he transcends the three properties.”

And Lord Krishn sings in reply:

“The man, O Pandav,
who neither abhors radiance,

inclination to action,
and
attachment that are generated respectively

by
the operations of sattwa, rajas, and tamas
when he is involved in them,
nor
aspires for them when he is liberated;…”

.“And who, like a dispassionate onlooker,
is
unmoved by the properties

and is steady and unshaken by dint of his realization
that
these properties of nature but abide in themselves;..

“And who, ever dwelling in his Self,
views joy, sorrow, earth,

stone, and gold as equal,
is
patient, and evenly regards

the pleasant and the unpleasant,
slander and praise;…”

“And who puts up with honour and dishonour,
as
also with friend and foe,
with equanimity,
and
who gives up the undertaking of action
is
said 
to have transcended all the properties.”

Verses mentioned above disclose the attributes of the man
who has risen above the three properties
so that he
is
unagitated, unswayed by the properties,
and
steady.

What follows now is clarification of the means
by which
one is liberated from these properties.

Lord Krishn adds:

“And the man who serves me with the yog
of
unswerving devotion

overcomes the three properties
and
secures the state of oneness with God.”

One who worships Lord Krishn with unwavering dedication,
that is,
with only the adored goal in his mind
and
oblivious of all other worldly memories, constantly serves him
by
performing the ordained action,
goes well across the three properties
and is worthy of being one
with the Supreme Spirit.

This union with God is the true kalp or cure.
No one can go beyond these properties
without undertaking the prescribed task with perfect intentness.

So the Yogeshwar at last gives his judgement.

“For I am the one in which the eternal God,
immortal life, the imperishable dharm,
and
the ultimate bliss all abide.’’

Lord Krishn is the dwelling of immortal God
(through a single-minded access to whom
the seeker is cured of all worldly maladies),
of
everlasting life,
of
eternal Dharm,
and
of
the unblemished pure joy of attaining to the Supreme goal.

In other words, a God-oriented saint is the abode of all this bliss.

So if we are seeking for the ineffable,
indestructible God,
the eternal dharm,
and
the pure, ultimate bliss,
we have to take refuge in some great Soul that dwells
in
the incommunicable essence.
Only such a sage can enable a devotee
to
achieve what he is questing for.
