All beings are dominated by their governing property
act under its compulsion.
The sage who is blessed with perception also makes his efforts
in accordance with his nature.
Ordinary men abide in their actions and the wise in their Self.
Everyone acts according to the inescapable demands of his nature.
This is a self-evident
It is for this reason that,
according to Sri Krishn in Bhagavad Gita,
men do not follow his teaching even though they know it.
Unable to overcome desire,
self-interest, and sorrow,
in other words,
attachment and aversion,
they fail to act
in the prescribed way.
It is certainly maya which is powerful
in letting us leave the illusion
we all still dream in.
We must keep in mind that unless the worshipped God acts
as the earnest charioteer
who alerts at every step,
despite our dedication and closing our eyes in meditation,
all other endeavours,
we cannot cope with the adversities of the material world successfully.
How are we to know how much distance we have covered
how much more remains to be covered?
The adored God stands inseparably with the Self
that we are now at this point,
that we should do this,
walk like that.
Thus the gulf of nature is gradually bridged
guiding the Soul ahead by gradual steps,
God at last enables us to merge into him.
For such situation,
Bhagavad Gita sings:
“A true seeker naturally bears with him
into his new birth the noble impressions (sanskar) of yog
from his previous existence,
and by dint of this he strives well for perfection
that comes from the realization of God.”
Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:
“Since selfless action neither wears out the seed
from which it sprang nor has any adverse consequence,
even a partial observance of this dharm liberates one
from the dire terror of repeated birth and death.”
In the performance of action without coveting the fruits there of,
the initial impulse or the seed is not destroyed.
It also does not give rise to any evil.
So selfless action,
even though done in small measures,
frees us from the great fear represented by birth and death.
That necessitates reflecting over the nature of such action
walking at least a few steps along its path.
Worshipers who have renounced the vanity of earthly possessions
have trodden this path,
but so can those who lead the life of householders.
Sri Krishn tells Arjun to just sow the seed,
for the seed is never destroyed.
There is no power in nature,
no weapon, which can destroy it.
The material world can only cover it up momentarily
hide it for a while,
but it cannot wipe out the initial inspiration,
the seed, of the act
According to Sri Krishn,
even the gravest of sinners can doubtlessly cross over
by the ark of knowledge.
He means exactly this when he says
that if the seed of selfless action is just planted,
it is imperishable.
It does not even have any adverse outcome in so much
as it does not abandon us midway
after showing us how we can progress
towards spiritual attainment.
Even if we give it up, it works doggedly on for our final liberation.
This is why selfless action,
even in a small measure,
provides freedom from the great dread of birth and death.
Once planted, even after repeated birth,
the seed of such action takes us to the realization of God
to emancipation alike from pleasure and from pain.
it is divine intuition
within the inner realm of spiritual heart
which helps us reach that state in knowing
that we have been here before but just cannot see it.
The main source of such intuition
an accomplished Guru made available by divine arrangement
certainly is totally enlightened sage.
Bow down in lotus feet of revered Gurudev.
