18 Sep Bhagwad Gita 2.53 (Parisamvad)
Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.
Chapter 2, Shlokas 53
2.53 – When your mind is no longer disturbed by the flowery language of the Vedas, and when it remains fixed in the trance of self-realization, then you will have attained the divine consciousness.
Many, many years ago, my brother had high fever. He was 10 or 11 years old. We consulted the doctors. We had to spend a lot of money. We consulted a Dr. Bharucha who was considered as the final authority. He examined, nodded his head and we thought he had found some solution. We asked him, what was the problem? He announced that the boy has high fever. That, the thermometer showed. What more did Dr. Bharucha detect? Nothing. That night an American surgeon who was associated with the Institute, came down from Navsari. He looked at the child and immediately pronounced, “He has small pox.” Next morning there were markings on the body. So this is our problem. We are not sure of ourselves. Somewhere after some study, investigations, you have to settle down. You can’t keep searching all your life. Once you settle down, there is a lot of virtue in that settling down. The mind gets quiet, there are experiences and one carries on. If the basic is good, in course of time something good can happen.
