[gita-talk] The Bhagavad Gita - Daily Message - 14/12

 


||   Shree Hari  ||





II  14:12  II

 
lobhaḥ pravṛttirārambhaḥ karmaṇāmaśamaḥ spṛhā
rajasyetāni jāyante vivṛddhe bharatarṣabha
 
O best of Bharata (Arjuna), the predominance of Rajas gives rise to tendencies of greed, activity, restlessness, craving and undertaking selfish actions. 12
 
Comment:

When there is an increase in Rajoguṇa, then tendencies of greed, activity etc increase. Therefore at these times, aspirant should think that when nothing at all belongs to him in all the universes, all objects come and go, what does he need for himself? By thinking like this he should abandon all Rajasic tendencies and should become indifferent from them.

'Rajoguṇa' is contrary to detachment — 'rajo rāgātmakaṁ viddhi' (14/7). A man attains Yoga only when he is detached from actions and objects (Gītā 6/4). But due to attachment to actions and objects the Rajoguṇa does not let a man attain to Yoga.

[gita-talk] The Bhagavad Gita - Daily Message - 14/11

 


||   Shree Hari  ||





II  14:11  II

 
sarvadvāreṣu dehe'sminprakāśa upajāyate
jñānaṁ yadā tadā vidyādvivṛddhaṁ sattvamityuta
 
When the light of purity and discrimination shines forth through all the gateways of the human body (senses and mind), then it should be known that Sattva (goodness) is predominant.
 
Comment:

There is a difference between 'prakāśa' (light) and 'jñāna' (knowledge). 'Prakāśa ' means alertness in senses and mind, i.e., absence of the world of fancy (greed, unrest, craving etc.,) born of Rajoguṇa; and also, absence of sleep, indolence and heedlessness born of Tamoguṇa, but instead there is purity.  'Jñāna' means-- discrimination between the real and the unreal, the eternal and the transient, knowledge of what ought to be done and what ought not to be done. When the aspirants gets 'Prakāśa' and 'Jñāna', he should not develop pride by assuming these qualities to be his own, but believe them to have come as a result of Sattva Guna only and should get busy in spiritual activity such as singing God's glories and meditation. The reason is there is a potential of bigger gains from spiritual activity done at such a time.
