    Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5: Verse 15 - Verse 19)

    Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5: Verse 15 - Verse 19)

    In this episode, The Bearded Mystic Podcast discusses the 5th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, specifically verses  15 - 19. Sri Krishna explains how this all-pervading Paramatma neither drives human actions nor does it receive the positive or negative effects resulting from the choices made by deluded and unconscious beings. Sri Krishna explains how the Gyana shows us our true reality and makes it self-evident to us. Sri Krishna reminds us how the straight path towards freedom is to be absorbed in the reality of Brahman. When one sees and understands that there is only this Reality - they see no difference in plants, animal, or human beings. Once we establish our mind fully into this Brahman - we become flawless and impartial too. This ends the process of reincarnation because there is only this ONE Formless Awareness.

    Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5: Verse 11 - Verse 14)

    Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5: Verse 11 - Verse 14)

    In this episode, The Bearded Mystic Podcast discusses the 5th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, specifically verses  11 - 14.  Sri Krishna describes how this karma yogi sets the best example of how to be in the world and not of the world. They have completely identified as Formless Awareness, going beyond their past and future. Sri Krishna explains how the person established in this Formless Oneness, even though it appears that the senses are performing all actions sees inaction in action. Sri Krishna is reminding us that we are this Atman that is the witness consciousness within and that we can use the mind to control the mind and remind the mind itself to be free, unattached to the results of all actions. The atman is the non-doer; no god drives us to act nor controls the final outcome of any action. It is nature that takes care of all our actions and their outcomes.

    Thoughts on The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5: Verse 7 - Verse 10)

    In this episode, The Bearded Mystic Podcast discusses the 5th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, specifically verses 7 - 10.  Sri Krishna describes how this karma yogi sets the best example of how to be in the world and not of the world. They have completely identified as the Formless Awareness - therefore going beyond their past and their future. Sri Krishna explains how the person established in this Formless Oneness, even though it appears that the senses are performing all actions sees inaction in action. All one needs to remember is that they are the observer and that no action belongs to the name and form. Sri Krishna declares that the yogi remains untouched by the outcomes of every action in the present and future as they offer it to all to Brahman - this Formless Awareness. Just like water does not cling to the Lotus-leaf, when the Lotus is taken out of the water.

    Wisdom of the Mystics: Lao Tzu

    Wisdom of the Mystics: Lao Tzu

    In this episode, The Bearded Mystic Podcast discusses the wisdom of the Chinese Sage Lao Tzu.  I go through the first two verses of the Tao Te Ching that are attributed to Lao Tzu.

    Lao Tzu was a Chinese philosopher credited with founding the philosophical system of Taoism. He is best known as the author of the Laozi (later retitled the Tao-Te-Ching translated as “The Way of Virtue” or “The Classic of the Way and Virtue”) the work which exemplifies his thought.
    The name by which he is known is not a personal name but an honorific title meaning 'Old Man' or 'Old Master' and the debate continues as to whether an individual by that name ever existed or whether Lao Tzu is an amalgam of many different philosophers.

    I hope you enjoyed listening to the Wisdom of the Mystics series and if you are interested in listening to more episodes about Non-Duality and a deep dive into the Bhagavad Gita, please follow/subscribe to this Podcast.
