[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 16-22


||  Shree Hari  ||
Sixteenth Chapter


etairvimuktaḥ kaunteya tamodvāraistribhirnaraḥ
ācaratyātmanaḥ śreyastato yāti parāṁ gatim

O son of Kuntī (Arjuna), he who is liberated from these three gateways of hell, works out his own salvation, attains the Supreme Goal.


To be free from desire, anger and greed, means-- to have the aim to abandon them and not to be swayed by them. Even the virtuous action performed out of desire, anger or greed is not conducive to one's ultimate good. Therefore, an aspirant should pay special attention to renounce them.  While holding on to desire-anger-greed, even the performance of virtuous actions such as chanting the Lord's holy names and meditation on Him, do not lead to salvation; because these are the root causes of all sins (Gita: 3/37). Moreover, they are swallowers of all good virtues.

From Gita Prabodhini  by Swami Ramsukhdasji
