[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 16-23


||  Shree Hari  ||
Sixteenth Chapter


yaḥ śāstravidhimutsṛjya vartate kāmakārataḥ
na sa siddhimavāpnoti na sukhaṁ na parāṁ gatim*

He, who casting aside the ordinance of the scriptures and acts under the impulse of his own sweet will, neither attains perfection (purity of mind) nor happiness (peace) nor the Supreme Goal.


As a patient intends to discard unwholesome diet and plans to take wholesome healthy food, but out of attachment (inner tendency), he partakes unwholesome food which worsens his disease even more. Similarly men of demonical nature, from their own view-point they perform good actions but due to evil tendencies of desire, anger and greed, they get swayed and act in an arbitrary way, disregarding the ordinance of scriptures and thus go to ruin.  Due to pride, they regard themselves as perfect and happy-- 'siddho'haṁ balavānsukhī' (Gītā: 16/14) but in fact they are neither perfect nor happy, their hearts burn with the fire of pride and malice.

From Gita Prabodhini  by Swami Ramsukhdasji
