Swamiji,

Reference your below quoted sermon, and the Gita quotations, kindly advise as to how to remain established in the swaroop or self. Kindly tell some practical steps. One may not be too much attached to the body but how to reach swaroop or self. We hear so much talk about self in the sermons but how to know what and who it is and how to go deep down in oneself to make a contact with it, leave aside to remain or become established in it.

Living in this world, with so many needs, food, medicine, welfare of the family even in the old age, protection of dharma and where the nation is going and the dharma and the country is being abused by the powers that be etc., can one really in all honesty give it up from one's mind. without taking sanayas!

In effect the only way appears to be that one has to give up everything which is tangible and close our eyes to what we see all around us and do lots of TAPAS, like our Rishis did forgetting one's own NECESSITIES and the well-being of one's family, of his religion, his country, and pray hard, and only then one may get an inkling of SELF!

Or is there a simpler way to make a start, take the first step in the right direction without taking one's mind (which is impossible to control) away completely from all things worldly, i.e. but with only partial detachment that one may get an inkling of one's swaroop and he may feel that yes one is on the right path and that one will reach the destination eventually.

Your comments and advice on Swamiji Ramsukhdasji's sermon would be highly appreciated.

Dhanyavad.

SHER SINGH AGRAWAL.

In human beings, there are only three things that are deficient -
1) deficient in doing,
2) deficient in knowing and
3) deficient in realizing.

In order to overcome these three deficiencies and to attain liberation, human beings have been given three powers (shaktiyaans) - the power to do, the power to know and the power to accept. In spite of having these three powers, due to his ignorance and attachment to enjoyments, man continues to experience sorrows and unhappiness. If he were to properly utilize these three powers (shaktis), then he can exhaust his deficiencies and attain perfection. He can make this human birth entirely purposeful and significant.

· To do work (service, seva) for others for their benefit, remaining free from personal desires is proper use (sadupyog) of the "power of doing" which is "Karmayog".

· Becoming detached from the body and remaining established in the "self" (swaroop) is power use of the "power of knowing" which is "Jnanayog"

· To accept Bhagwaan (God) as our very own and we are Bhagwaan's is the proper use of the "power of acceptance (belief) which is "Bhaktiyog".

Gita gives lessons on all these three paths of Yoga (Union). Just like -

He who does his work for the benefit of others, only in the spirit of sacrifice (yagya) in other words with sentiments of selflessness (free of personal desires), that Karma yogi is released from the bondage of action -

"Yagyaayaacharatah karma samgram pravileeyate" (Gita 4/23).

He who does not consider the body and objects as his own and for himself, and utilizes it for the service of others, then the relationship with those objects (including body) is naturally discontinued (servered).

He who sees all actions as happening through Nature (Prakriti), and sees himself as not doing anything at all, that Jnana yogi realizes his true Self (Swaroop).

He who turns away from the world and only takes refuge in God, and besides God he does not want anything else, then the responsibility for his salvation lies with Bhagwaan (God). Therefore Bhagwaan Himself sees to the acquisition and preservation of the needs of the devotee that has taken shelter in Him. (Gita 9/22). He destroys all his sins (Gita 18/66). He speedily delivers this devotee from the ocean of birth and death. (Gita 12/7). And God also by dispeling the darkness born of ignorance and by shining the light of wisdom makes him realize his Essential Nature which is Divinity (Tattva-Jnana). (Gita 10/11)

The extraordinary things about Bhaktiyog (Discipline of Devotion) is that a devotee by God's grace gets to know Divinity, his real Self; he beholds (has darshan of) God and He also attains God (God Realization). (Gita 11/54).

In this manner, there are numerous transcendental lessons, and if one conducts themselves accordingly, then he can very quickly and easily attain his ultimate goal, God Realization.
