Verse of the Day : Bhagavad-gita As It Is--7.19
Chapter - 7 : Knowledge of the Absolute



बहूनां जन्मनामन्ते ज्ञानवान्मां प्रपद्यते |

वासुदेवः सर्वमिति स महात्मा सुदुर्लभः || १९ ||



bahūnāṁ janmanām ante

jñānavān māṁ prapadyate

vāsudevaḥ sarvam iti

sa mahātmā su-durlabhaḥ




SYNONYMS


bahūnām—many; janmanām—births; ante—after; jñānavān—he possessing knowledge; mām—unto Me; prapadyate—surrenders; vāsudevaḥ—cause of all causes; sarvam—all; iti—thus; saḥ—such; mahātmā—great soul; sudurlabhaḥ—very rare.




TRANSLATION


After many births and deaths, he who is actually in knowledge surrenders unto Me, knowing Me to be the cause of all causes and all that is. Such a great soul is very rare.




PURPORT


The living entity, while executing devotional service or transcendental rituals after many, many births, may actually become situated in transcendental pure knowledge that the Supreme Personality of Godhead is the ultimate goal of spiritual realization. In the beginning of spiritual realization, while one is trying to give up one's attachment to materialism, there is some leaning towards impersonalism, but when one is further advanced he can understand that there are activities in the spiritual life and that these activities constitute devotional service. Realizing this, he becomes attached to the Supreme Personality of Godhead and surrenders to Him. At such a time one can understand that Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa's mercy is everything, that He is the cause of all causes and that this material manifestation is not independant from Him. He realizes the material world to be a perverted reflection of spiritual variegatedness and realizes that in everything there is a relationship with the Supreme Lord Kṛṣṇa. Thus he thinks of everything in relation to Vāsudeva, or Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Such a universal vision of Vāsudeva precipitates one's full surrender to the Supreme Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa as the highest goal. Such surrendered great souls are very rare.


This verse is very nicely explained in the Third Chapter of Śvetāśvatara Upaniṣad: "In this body there are powers of speaking, of seeing, of hearing, of mental activities, etc. But these are not important if not related to the Supreme Lord. And because Vāsudeva is all-pervading and everything is Vāsudeva, the devotee surrenders in full knowledge." (Cf. Bhagavad-gītā 7.17 and 11.40)

Happy Basant to all.
 
Happy Vasant Panchami

Vasant Panchami (Basant Panchami) is a famous festival that marks the end of the winter season and  the start of spring season. Goddess Sarasvati is worshiped on this day, as Saraswati Puja or Shree Panchami.  Children fly kites to mark the auspicious occasion. Young girls wear bright yellow dresses and participate in the festivities. The color yellow holds a special meaning for this celebration as it signifies the brilliance of nature and the vibrancy of life.

When will we wake up. If ever.
 
Superficial vs. deep

Sometimes the mind is compared to the ocean, and turbulent thoughts to the waves agitating its surface…

There is no difference between pieces of dead wood  agitated by the deep sea (be the wood called 'seaweed' or 'boat'), and simple drops of water  agitated by the deep sea. The underlying agitation, the observable phenomenon, is caused by the sea under!

But is there agitation if there is no land? No piece of wood? Only water (not even an observer to conceptualise the 'average' sea level)?

Whether you're tempted by a materialistic view or by a Only-Mind view, you may miss that the ocean is unlikely to see a wave a few meters high as a meaningful agitation where it's 11,000 meters deep…
The usual wave is about as significant as a lock of your hair moving on your head due to the wind, or a wrinkle of your skin! If deep, long water currents are affected by climate change, this is more like a circulatory problem for you, and you might indeed take so more seriously than a mere hair cut… or risk dramatic consequences if you ignore the issue.

To focus on the superficial agitation is to miss the big picture!

Understanding causality in Buddhism goes deeper than the superficial aspects; this is not just about the causality that affects 'me'.

Climate change affects all of us, this includes 'me' but this also includes others. Additionally, the solution lies with the concerted effort of all, not just 'me' but also 'me': a selfish "counting on others" is the best way to fail to address the issue and to create a bleak future (Guess who will suffer from it? And who will then blame 'others' for not having done enough?).

What about a modern buddhist vow such as « I vow to pay attention to shut off the lights and electric equipments, when I leave a room (whether I'm the one paying the electricity bill, or not —offices!); I vow to refrain from heating —or cooling— rooms when unnecessary; I vow not to let energy go to waste (simply because it's convenient not to think about it and convenient not to adjust settings "all the time"… although it only takes a few seconds in reality) »?

Complacency and laziness (the opposite of "right effort") are deep root-causes of suffering… And we need to tackle the deep hindrances, not just our superficial cravings. Setting lights and temperature to what's needed, everywhere, every time is part of this effort to cultivate the cessation of suffering (and 'comfort' is often substantially different from 'need'… even in mundane common situations, without falling into some righteous absolutist stance). Not 'wanting' to 'pay' attention, or 'disliking' that the room is not instantaneously at the 'right' temperature when one enters it, are extremely poor reasons to cyclically suffer. As we're approaching the extrema of temperatures in both hemispheres, may we refrain from wasting energy.
