Gita Acharan |English

Krishna says, "Listen again to My supreme word (𝙋𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙒𝙖𝙒 π™‘π™–π™˜π™π™–π™£) for your welfare (10.1). Neither angels nor sages know my origin as I am the source of all of them" (10.2).

 

It is inherently difficult to know our origin. A tree can never know the seed which gave it its existence; an eye cannot see itself which limits our ability to understand our origin, and due to the limitation of our senses the same holds true for the 𝙋𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙒𝙖𝙩𝙒𝙖'𝙨 origin too. One simple solution is to provide a mirror to the eye so that it can see itself and in this chapter, Krishna provides many instances which can act like a mirror giving HIS glimpses.

 

Krishna says, "Whoever realises Me to be the unborn, beginning-less and supreme Lord of existence, conquers delusion and is liberated of all sins" (10.3). Krishna is talking about realisation at the existential level, not merely by-hearting at the memory level. This involves being one with existence like the proverbial salt doll melting into the ocean, by shedding our π˜Όπ™π™–π™£π™ π™–π™–π™§. Our π˜Όπ™π™–π™£π™ π™–π™–π™§ is our biggest delusion and once it is dropped, it is conquered. Any 𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙒𝙖 becomes a sin once 'I' is attached to it and being free of π˜Όπ™π™–π™£π™ π™–π™–π™§ is liberation from sins.

 

Citing his glimpses, Krishna Says, "From Me alone arise the varieties of qualities in humans, such as intellect, knowledge, freedom from doubt, forgiveness, truthfulness, control over the senses and mind, joy and sorrow, birth and death, fear and courage, non-violence, equanimity, contentment, austerity, charity, fame, and infamy" (10.4 and 10.5). It is remembering HIM when we see joy or courage in others without getting envious; when we see birth and death; when we see joy and sorrow around us. It is realising that forgiveness, contentment and truthfulness are HIS virtues and not weaknesses.
