Physical entities like us (manifested) are invariably affected by two delusions. The first one, 𝙮𝙤𝙜𝙖-𝙢𝙖𝙮𝙖, born out of three 𝙜𝙪𝙣𝙖𝙨, leads to 𝙖𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙖𝙖𝙧 (𝙖𝙝𝙖𝙢-𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙖 or I am doer) whereas 'actions' happen because of interactions between 𝙜𝙪𝙣𝙖𝙨. Second is the delusion brought by polarities of longing and aversion which leads to desires to possess things, people and feelings; and develop an aversion to others whereas it's about witnessing 'actions' without longing or aversion. These two complement each other. While 𝙖𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙖𝙖𝙧 justifies desires; desires, especially fulfilled ones, enhance 𝙖𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙖𝙖𝙧.
In this regard, Krishna says, "Those who strive for liberation from old age and death, taking 𝙖𝙨𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙮𝙖 (refuge) in Me, they realise the 𝘽𝙧𝙖𝙝𝙢𝙖𝙣 (the whole/absolute), 𝘼𝙙𝙝𝙮𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖 (spirituality/individual self) and 𝙖𝙠𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙖𝙢-𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖 (all aspects of action) (7.29). Those who know Me as 𝘼𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙗𝙝𝙪𝙩𝙖 (above elements), 𝘼𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙙𝙖𝙞𝙫𝙖 (above God's) and 𝘼𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙮𝙖𝙜𝙣𝙖 (above sacrifices) even at the time of death, they, steadfast in mind, know Me" (7.30).
Interestingly, Krishna brings death and old age immediately after delusions (7.25 and 7.27) as these delusions instill fear in us like the fear of desires not getting fulfilled or ahankaar getting hurt. But death is the root fear which takes many forms of fear and overcoming this will help us transcend delusions, hence, many cultures use death as an instrument of 𝙫𝙖𝙞𝙧𝙖𝙖𝙜𝙮𝙖 (dispassion) to control the mind and overcome all fears. Krishna advises '𝙖𝙨𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙮𝙖' (refuge) which is taking refuge in 𝙋𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖 leading to understanding HIM in totality.
The state of 'asritya' is like a wise man who actively accepts all outcomes to be the LORD's blessings to his prayers; his mantra being reading letters from A to Z and requesting the 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖 to assemble them in whichever manner the 𝙋𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙖 sees fit -as whatever is needed and whatever happens, is embedded in these syllables.
