Bhagavad Gita Quote

Chapter II: Sankhya Yoga

Second Discourse: SANKHYA YOGA

Sanjaya said(to the king Dhritarashtra):
II.1. To him (Arjuna) who was thus overcome with pity and who was
despondent, with eyes full of tears and agitated, Madhusudana
(the destroyer of the demon Madhu, [Krishna]) spoke these words:

The Blessed Lord(Krishna) said(to Arjuna):
II.2. Whence is this perilous strait come upon thee, this
dejection which is unworthy of you, disgraceful, and which will
close the gates of heaven upon you, O Arjuna?

II.3. Yield not to impotence, O Partha(Arjuna, son of Pritha). It
does not befit thee. Cast off this mean weakness of the heart!
Stand up, O scorcher of foes!

It is hard to attain Peace. Sincere, intense longing is essential.

Raja Yoga Sutra

Raja Yoga Selection Number 77, for Monday, May 29, 2017

[from Discourse II: "Sadhana Pada- On Spiritual Disciplines"]
'The misery that has not yet manifested should be avoided'.

Karma has been worked out, is being worked out, or is waiting to be
worked out by one's actions. Karma that has already been incurred cannot
be changed, but its misery can be avoided by positive thinking. Future
pain can be avoided by carefully attending to present actions.

Weekly Poem


I had a peep into the Beyond;
This made my life sweet,
The burden of Samsara light.
Time and space vanished.
I swim in the ocean of Consciosness.

Reason has left me.
Intuition is beaming.
The mind has melted.
The senses are dissolved.

I have poise and peace,
Amidst incessant work.
I am not shaken
By severe tribulation.
I live in the Supreme.
