How to be Equipoised

One of the main essence of Bhagavad Gita is, I am trying to implement in my life to be equipoised. It is not easy but slow practice is bringing effects. Lord Krishna says in Gita “practice will support to achieve it ” but

What exactly it means to be equipoised?

It simply means as per Bhagavad gita, the great British saying “Keep Calm and Carry On”. Definitely that is initial phase of understanding it, but when you go deeper into meaning, it signifies the importance of keep yourself neutral, regardless of happy sorrowful time. It has lots of underlying meaning which, I will explain more in next blog.

But why?

what is the big deal in keeping ourselves balanced mind, what it unlocks? Keeping mind balanced no doubt builds focus and enable us to see the bigger picture, it doesn’t distorts picture of situation by emotions/anger. This is how you get the key of your life. If this is not the case, then we simply get tossed by waves of ocean and we have no control.

But How?

Shri Prabhupad’s Gita has made it easy all around, simply build Krishna consciousness no need to do tough methods of so many Yogas like hatha yoga, ashtanga yoga, dry mental speculations to restrain from sense gratification as it comes with a lot of ground work but a devotee of the Lord automatically refrains, find it so easy because of superior taste of being in Krishna consciousness. In the next blog, I will elaborate more on Krishna consciousness to make the full sense of higher taste of life.

Saturation Vs Satisfaction

This topic, I have come across, a very interesting exploration by Dr Nitaisevini Mataji, a ISKCON inspirational speaker. I am going through a very similar stage of life, and this video just supported in the way I was looking for.

Why it is our requirement, or what changes it is bringing in my life?

Saturation attribute of life or our personality more points that there is plenty and having more will satisfy my senses but how is it possible, when you don’t know where to stop.

How I found it relevant, when I applied in my life whether I am satisfied or saturated. I checked the fact that if my life was different or people around me ,then I wouldn’t have been so enthusiastic, or so keen to know more about life in general. All the conditions or people have nurtured me so far, and still motivating me to be focused in defining the

” Purpose of Life”

Thinking this, is bringing more acceptance and really what more I can ask for? This insightful check about satisfaction, it can bring lots of benefits, make the best of this life bargain whether you consider it good, bad, hard work and so many names that we keep doing it.

Yipeee

So check it out or post your questions.

Nip in the bud Concept

Why I am talking about this suddenly?

Well yesterday in the evening, when I was completing my assignments along with it, I was also listening Hare Krishna TV, a channel on YouTube dedicated to Krishna Consciousness. I listened an interesting lecture “Nip in the Bud” concept by Mahatma Das to identify early stage of intelligence when we mediate on anything, I felt so thankful & filled with excitement to share with readers on WordPress. My obeisance to him, it is Krishna mercy through him. I would definitely recommend checking his website.

https://mahatmadas.com/

What was the Lecture?

Krishna ,when we meditate on anything more and more, we start losing the first stage of analysis when our intelligence is more active that’s the time we need to recognise and stop it before it slips and turns into lust.

Beautifully said that, recognise the early stage of mediating whether it is your career, buying a product or any thing. It is the stage ,when intelligence is very active and asking questions “Why I need this”, “How it can satisfy me” ,quality questions for mutual benefit. This is the right time to nip in the bud before it gets too late turn into attachment second stage and lastly third stage “lust”. Mostly marketers, they use lots of parameters to connect to products, to increase our meditating time.It is upto to us to ask quality questions rather than directly jumping to third stage straightway, means ending in I have to have it, a dangerous stage to pull out from.

He explained by taking an example of marriage, they break because when you are looking more than required, which ultimately goes to unpleasant stage. I hope , it has helped you to recognise,

“Our intelligence is Our Ally”

Hello Friends

I am so sorry ,writing after long time, lots of things happened in the mean time, as I am moving towards more Krishan consciousness, a lot is happening and I needed time to absorb it. My personal life is changed to the level ,that in addition to leaving caffeine, I have left eggs, also onion and garlic as Krishna doesn’t like it. This is all to please Krishna. This is the result due to reading more gita, things are changing so fast. All I can say that this also due to listening my Guru Mother Shri Radhika KripaJi as well.

My obeisance to her.

Those who are Hindi speakers, I would definitely recommend to listen her lectures on you tube, she also sometimes does zoom lessons in English, check her Facebook page. The chapter 5 and 6 are elaborate explanation of Karma and Dhyana(focus) Yoga. Krishna explained to Arjuna that there are numerous types of yoga but if all this not moving towards to Supreme consciousness, then you will just end up in hard work all the time.

Yoga means process of linking oneself with Supreme. Such person should know his constitutional position as the living entity and act accordingly. The living entity has no separate identity, we are marginal energy of Supreme.

Life without strategy end up in hard work.

All types are simply useless, if someone doesn’t realise what is his eternal quality which is ” we are eternal servants of Krishna”.

Some lines from Bhagwad-Gita Chapter 6 Text 36

For one whose mind is unbridled, self realisation is difficult work. But he whose mind is controlled and who strives by appropriate means is assured of success.

Means : Trying to practice yoga while engaging the mind in material enjoyment is trying to ignite a fire while pouring water on it. Yoga without mental control is waste of time, such show may be material lucrative but useless as far as spiritual realisation is concerned, that’s why one must control mind by engaging in loving service of Supreme Lord.

This post is mainly related to application of all knowledge gathered by the chapter 3. Before I move to chapter 4, it is important to reflect insights. The main application advantage of reading Geeta so far is that you learn to see the full framework/picture. You are no longer carried away from attached feelings all the time, you are fully convinced on the strong understanding. But this seems to be easy to say rather than done. It takes continuous practice each and every day.

At present I am feeling that moments are clearly communicating that you need to tear off the comfort layer, get more active, don’t waste a single moment not living in active consciousness, by the greatest tool is be firm in your regular spiritual day practices. The result is the holy sound/talk inside you become so strong enough to break your limited perspective, it is like falling deck of cards. I never thought in my life, that I would come across such a strong purification process, as a result I have recently left tea/coffee, fully caffeine free now.

You would think that what is the relation of caffeine?

As I am following daily spiritual practices ,it is bringing a transition phase, that’s why my queries have gone up, I wanted to know more about Krishna, what are special qualities makes him so popular? I came across a very influential speaker Nitaisevini Devi Dasi. Check the link http://nitaisevinimataji.in/

Her lecture on 64 qualities of Krishna part3 on YouTube, initial 13 min video made me so melting like that I started crying .It is explained so beautifully that Krishna is so merciful that every single day he forgives, on small effort for him, he gives back so much in return and for him we can’t leave caffeine, garlic/onion, non-veg diet, so small changes. These are simply hurdles in elevating consciousness, we just need to eat only that much to keep body healthy supporting our consciousness, and immediately I decided that I would leave caffeine. Since then there is no going back, I am enjoying transition the herbal teas.

Some lines from chapter 4

As a blazing fire turns firewood to ashes, O arjuna, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities.

“As It is “

Reading Bhagwad-Gita every day and feeling the direct and main message of the book is simply that “It is time go Back To Godhead”. Chapter 2 is simply the elaborate explanation of Arjuna’s confusion or I would say that his desire to re-announce his duties and simply live in forest. This whole confusion starts getting its way from the start of Chapter 3.

I am on chapter-3,here Krishna is taking over the conversation insisted that ignoring the real-facts of life, you will fail in attaining peace & happiness that you have been talking about for so long. A warrior has duty to fight on the intention to establish kingdom on right principles, you are just dealing situation with an escape-mindset. Krishna emphasis on giving up your duties without purification of inner-self ,on the top of that talking flowering language of Vedas to keep society in order is simply based due to bodily attachment to life.

Gita has so much to offer and I am feeling helpless to summarise the chapters. This effort is just like that trying to get an ocean in a small jar. I really don’t know, what more I can write but by Krishna’s mercy, I am hoping that via this blog if even a single person get interested in Gita that will be so much for me.

I never thought that I would be so consistent in reading Gita every day. This book written by Shri Prabhupada delivers message ” Go Back to God”, otherwise when you are gonna go back, when that moment will come to be free from dwelling situations of life. More clarity paved my way, when I wondered how a Krishna conscious person carry on with duties.

A Krishna conscious will do the same duties comparing to non-Krishna conscious person but there is a gulf of difference. Krishna conscious person never take shelter of false ego considering himself as doer of everything ,hence free from any reaction, on the other hand a materialistic person finds his way to build ego, hence will have to be the cause of karma as well, in this way you can’t turn away from the reactions of karma as well.

“As It Is”

As I am reading more and more Bhagwad Gita , I am becoming more enlightened person. This book is simply I feel a “Love letter from Krishna”. My usual habit used to be always jumping to chapters not reading Introduction part but this time don’t know I was inclined towards first read Introduction part. I am so glad that I read and understood the importance of taking book in right comprehension guidelines. The overall summary is that I start with first is that “Bhagwad -gita is not an ordinary book, it has power to change our conditioned thinking.

Introduction introduces meaning of Santana-eternal. The supreme lord and we are eternal and combination association of the Supreme Lord and the living entities is the perfection of human life.

Every living being is rendering service to another living being in various capacities that’s why living entity enjoys life. For eg mother serves son, wife serves husband, the husband serves wife and so on . The book intelligently concludes that rendering of service is the constant companion of living being, it is eternal religion of living being, and yet we claim belong to particular faith like Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, labelling is non-eternal.

Factually we are related to Supreme Lord in service, the supreme lord is the enjoyer & we are his servitors. Krishna clearly says that “Arjuna(warrior & friend) ,simply just fix your mind on me, with your activities, intelligence dedicated to me , you will simply be free from all sins, pious karma concluding free from hell/heaven desires and you will attain me.

Krishna’s whole communication pattern was not to discourage from doing karma ,as one has to work in the world but offering fruits of karma to Krishna you are simply free from ups & downs & become eligible to be in supreme abode i.e. Peaceful & Happy.

Hari Bol.

Each day when I wake up, I just wake up in happiness that what more insights, what more revelations this book will give me that will just transform things. I hope you enjoyed this blog post. I simply wish the way “Gita” is bringing daily dose of happiness, it brings in your life as well, why to wait for this beautiful song from Krishna for us.

Hello Readers, I am back again to talk more about “As it is”. This time I am feeling “As it is ” is seeping deeply in me. I would elaborate in the sense my reaction level has gone down by 80%.
A story will support it. Today in morning, when my husband left to drop my elder son to school, so straightway as per my plan, I went outside to clean my car. I have been thinking about for long time. During the cleaning, the old recycled thoughts took over my mind that I did ask my husband to get that fully professional clean but he didn’t do it, then I observed it multiplied into fault finding process. I said to myself” Hang On”, I think, I should be just cleaning the car.

I should see the full picture as well. He loves cooking, he loves spending time with children, he takes care of kids homework. As soon as, I finished the chore, I checked my Instagram, I saw this quote.

“Taking responsibility of one own’s action is the step towards understanding Karma” by Dandapanillic.The quick acceptance of the way he is, mind is not reacting anymore, assisting to see the full picture. As the result, the introspective mind turned questions turning towards me, like the way I grew up or what type of personality I am, to be honest it was feeling very satisfactory & fulfilling inside instead of external factors, I was assessing internal factors.

There is one tool, I am using to develop focus which is beads. Every morning and evening I am chanting mantra on beads, this is helping me slowly build impeccable way of making sense of life. So, what is your story, anything you have recognised in your life to exercise “As it is”.

Eager to listen story, see pic or any video that you use to practice “As it is”. I am thinking to launch painting shop on “As it is” campaign, what you think.

What is difference between logical mind and awareness?

This question clicked in me and the answer also came along with that .

Answer:Logical Mind will always look for logic,cut down things to make sense,just like a scientist see a flower and pluck out petals to know or discover something but awareness have discovery element but with added concept “Acceptance”.”As it is “,acceptance just accepts all the roles whatever you or others do.Acceptance give birth to “Love and Compassion”.

This theory gives me feeling of being in front of sea.Sea symbolises abundance and acceptance.What are your feelings?

Please share your story of you felt this difference,will be blessed if this “As it is” acceptance increases.Please press like,share on social media or subscribe,if you like this post.

But how easy or difficult to practice “As it is”.The main question “A big How?”I have so much to tell but from where to start don’t know,that’s why I leave the things on life to shape the story.

“As it is ” is not just instant remedy for the problem but actually it is the way of life,to keep you carry on. The more rigid we are ,more difficult it is .I must say the lock down has proven a boon in the sense,I am more in the questioning/observation mode directing me towards to be more flexible.

A simple example ,I exercised today that when my elder son in hurry opened the microwave door without even seeing his younger brother is just right there,as a result he got hit by door,fortunately it wasn’t that bad.In obvious way,I got angry and at one point I just prayed “Goddess Laxmi”,please Mother help me to understand this scenario .A pause helped to understand “As it is”,very soon I felt, that I am exaggerating,so I stopped,diverted myself and after some time had constructive conversation with my son to build awareness.So,the Rain concept ,follows later which I found from one of the blogger’s comment on the old post,so grateful to him.

I recalled the fact,my elder son is always full of energy,fond of running,sports (Recognition).

So expect that the vibrant energy(Acceptance).

I asked mother please advise me “What is the difference between a constructive angry form and destructive angry form?(Investigation)

There is thin line difference ,constructive angry form leaves you with awareness & solution,it settles down quickly but destructive just destroys like recalling past so much,complaining ,completely stuck,not progressing towards solution. (Nurture)

So,what’s your story,did you feel at some point in your life that you stopped to think “As it is”,would be fun to get more insight.Please like,comment,share or subscribe if you like this blog.Thank you
