Here God Krishna is saying to Arjuna that to be in pure transcendental consciousness, a person must give up all the varieties of sense gratifications which arise from engagement of senses as per urges of satisfaction of gratifications on the direction of mind which is not stable and wandering here and there and which is the friend and enemy of a person. 

Mind is our friend if we can control it and mind is our enemy if we allow ourselves to be controlled by it. These urges for the satisfaction of material sense gratification arise because of the tendency of mental concoction in us which make us believe something which is not true. 

It is just like if we add different ingredients in a new way to make some new meal. Our mind tends mental concoction as it picks some part of the story from somewhere and remaining parts from some other stories and presents a new picture in front of us which appears to be astonishing but in reality, the new picture is far from reality however fascinating it appears to us. Mind keep us in agony, stress, anxieties, worries for events which will never happen in our life. It keeps us fearful for our future.

Mind starts to get purified and find peace and satisfaction in self alone when our intelligence which is just like a driver in a car which controls the steering of the car ( here steering of the car is our mind) and driver (intelligence) drives the car (our body) in such a way to save the person sitting on the rear seat (soul).

Our intelligence should be strong enough which should have the power to control the mind and when the mind is controlled and purified than it can control the senses nicely. The purified mind which has shed away the urges for sense gratification created by mental concoction and started finding peace, happiness, satisfaction in self alone then only we can say that the mind is now on spiritual platform and away from the normal or ordinary human experience and knowledge. We pray to God for material comforts but material energy gives only worries, anxieties and mental disturbance. We are asking for trouble in front of God every day. We should ask for peace, love, worship of God in our daily prayer to make our life blissful. 
We will get as per our destiny which is formed before our first as per our pious and impious actions in previous birth. There is no need to run for material success as we will not be able to get more than what is destined for us irrespective of our hard work and efforts. We have to keep our focus on worship of God Shri Krishna and render devotional service to God Shri Krishna to get freedom from the cycle of repeated birth and death and this dangerous material world full of miseries, worries, anxieties.

Thanks for reading the blog.

  1. How do we make our intelligence strong enough to have control over mind?

  2. Hare Krishna,

    Please make your intelligence the ultimate approver or rejector before you think, speak and do any action. It can be achieved with practice of taking a pause before you think, speak or do any action. Keeping yourself in mode of goodness will also help in it. Spiritual knowledge and devotion to supreme God Krishna will help you to purify your intelligence and enable it to decide best for you and prevent you from surrendering to the urges of mind.

Pious Manners

Pious Manners 
There is a chain of events to reach soul happiness. It starts from good thoughts and good thoughts lead to good manners and it leads to the pious mind and which leads to soul happiness. 

It is in the company of Saints/sages/good people that we generate or inculcate good thoughts. A good company is the requisite for self-realization. The biggest hindrance to self-realization is arrogance and pride. Humility is the most important factor for self-realization. The way you thought the way you work. Keep your thought pure to do goods actions which leads to good habits or manners. Thoughts engrossed in material things leads to unhappiness. Godly thoughts are our real Saviours. Bad thoughts are like seeds of thorn yielding plants.

Keep a vigil on the three main sense organs such as eyes, mouth, ear. Engage these sense organs in devotion to God or else they will drag you down to hell. Whatever we hear, see, or speak has a tremendous effect on our mind and consciousness. Engage ear …

Brahman is non-destructive and exists eternally without any change. Karma creates the material bodies of living entities. Karma forces us to take a new body after our death. It may be a body of human, bird, animal, or any demigod depending on the consciousness in which we left our last breath. We keep the remembrance of God in our entire life so that at the last moment of our life, we should not miss the chance to go back to where we actually belong and that is the abode of the home of our God. 

Hear, remember, the chant holy name of God isthree pillars of our life of spiritual realization. The material nature is consistently undergoing changes. Change is the bitter truth of life. We should not get ourselves attached to the material world consisting of our family, society, nation, relatives, bank balance, home, property, and other material things otherwise we will feel immense pain when a constant and continuous change of material nature will snatch these things from us.
