“So we say ‘Good morning’, but do we really wish good for the others? Probably sometimes we don’t. So ‘good actions’. Apparently we do many good actions, but what is the motive behind? See, good actions are one kind of actions, also bad actions are there, and sometimes bad actions are done with good intentions; there are mixed intentions- good and bad, another kind- not good and not bad, so we are just discussing about the good intentions. Intentions which are done with that kind of a mind and also show some good results, that would be considered as a right action, which we often don’t do. So here are the divisions which we shall discuss.”
28th January 2013 – Tuesday – Bhagavad Gita (6.15 – 6.16)“Yoga is not for one who indulges in excess. We do that. Many things we like and we fall for it and that actually distracts us because all our attention goes there, energies go there. One who is balanced, that is the one for whom yoga is. Neither one thing nor the other. In case of Madhavdasji, he had no excess. His food was simple- rice, some curds, that’s all. We want variety. That is not yoga.
30th January 2013 – Thursday – Krishna Shukla Karma
“See, this discussion is about black and white. You see we always want to show that we are white- pure. But unfortunately we are both. You see we are sometimes good, sometimes bad. It is a fact that we have to appreciate.”
