11 Sep Bhagwad Gita – 2.51, 2.52
Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.
Chapter 2, Shlokas 51 & 52
2.51 – By thus engaging in devotional service to the Lord, great sages or devotees free themselves from the results of work in the material world. In this way they become free from the cycle of birth and death and attain the state beyond all miseries [by going back to Godhead]
2.52 – When your intelligence has passed out of the dense forest of delusion, you shall become indifferent to all that has been heard and all that is to be heard.
So the suggestion is why don’t we stop trying to order nature to act according to our own wishes? Why don’t we accept nature for what it does? Keeping the mind happy, cheerful, relaxed each day as it unfolds, at the same time carry on our own duties looks like a sensible kind of suggestion.
