[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message (18-33)


   ||   Shree Hari    ||

Gita 18-33

dhṛtyā yayā dhārayate manaḥprāṇendriyakriyāḥ

yogenāvyabhicāriṇyā dhṛtiḥ sā pārtha sāttvikī

The unwavering firmness equipped with Yoga (equanimity), by which one controls the activities of the mind, the life-breath and the senses-- that firmness is Sāttvika (of the nature of goodness).


The embodied soul is a fragment of God, therefore when a man goes for help to  anyone other than God, it is 'vyabhicāra' (he is not having exclusive devotion and dependence on God); and depending solely on God is 'avyabhicāra' (total dependence on God only). The dhaṛtih (firmness) which is based on exclusive devotion and dependence only on God is unwavering firmness. By having this firmness, there is perfect control on the functions of mind, life breath and senses.     

From Gita Prabodhani in Hindi, by Swami Ramsukhdasji
