    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 66 - 67 - What’s Wrong with Liking My Stuff?!

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 66 - 67 - What’s Wrong with Liking My Stuff?!

    Without clear understanding that all that we seek outside is not going to bring us the peace we seek, the mind will always be restless. Swamiji delves deep into our mind’s flawed logic and tendency to dwell on the objects we desire. He also clearly illustrates the journey from agitation to quietness in the mind that we repeatedly go on when pursuing our desires.

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 64 - 65 - Going Beyond Likes and Dislikes

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 64 - 65 - Going Beyond Likes and Dislikes

    It is not that every object attracts us, but depending on our likes and dislikes that the mind develops a desire for certain objects. Taking our mind through the shopping malls of the world around us, Swamiji clearly illustrates how in the peaceful mind of one who has given up strong likes and dislikes, the seeds of their vasanas get completely roasted!

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 63 - The Ladder of Fall (2)

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 63 - The Ladder of Fall (2)

    Obsessive desire for anything constitutes lust. Lust when obstructed leads to anger, and this anger deludes us, causing us to lose our ability to discriminate between what is real and unreal. Swamiji illustrates this through an anecdote in the Ramayana, driving home the clear ways in which our desire for the world outside carries us swiftly down the ladder of fall!

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 61-63 - The Ladder of Fall (1)

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 61-63 - The Ladder of Fall (1)

    The mind is easily coloured by sense pleasures and the intellect often justifies indulgence, but Krishna explains how an intellect dedicated to a higher goal can lovingly inspire the mind to master, and not just suppress, the senses. Swamiji also introduces Krishna’s famous ‘ladder of fall’ to help us understand how the uncontrolled mind leads us further away from our ultimate goal!

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 59-60 - The Strength of the Senses!

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 59-60 - The Strength of the Senses!

    How much can one abstain from all the temptations of the world?

    When we stay away from the temptations, they eventually turn away from us too. However, Krishna reminds us that the memory of the pleasures continues to tempt even the most intelligent of us! Having withdrawn the senses, the mind must be alert, vigilant and directed into deeper contemplation of the Truth.

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 57- 58 - The Person of Perfection (4)

    Geeta Chapter 2 Verse 57- 58 - The Person of Perfection (4)

    Krishna paints this delicate word-picture of a person of perfection on the canvas of Arjuna’s mind. He even anticipates Arjuna’s queries and begins to eliminate them! How can one so easily withdraw from the world? In today’s episode, Swamiji eloquently explains Krishna’s beautiful metaphor comparing the tortoise and the sthitaprajna!

Episodes by sequence

Why are we not able to see all episodes of a season in sequence. Undoubtedly the content is the best but problem is that after listening to one episode, we have to struggle to find the next in sequence.

Supreme knowledge sharing!

Bhagvadgita knowledge is the most supreme in this world, worth listening, assimilating and reflecting!
