Understanding, Determination, Happiness

Understanding, Determination, Happiness.

Understanding in the mode of Goodness:

Understanding through which one knows how to discriminate between what is required to be done and what is not required to be done. Which action is liberating from the bondage of work and which action makes one bind to the results and made him suffer or enjoy due to reactions of actions. What is required to be feared and what is not required to be feared?

Happiness in the mode of goodness:

Image source: Bhagavad Gita
The happiness which appears poison in beginning but realized nectar, later on, is in the mode of goodness. Moving towards the path of self-realization is tough in the beginning but gives immense pleasure to the person who gets himself self-realized. Material energy takes a very hard test of the person on the path of self-realization in initial stages.

Understanding in the mode of Passion

Understandings through which one does not know how to discriminate between action required to be done and action not required to be done. A person fails to discriminate between religion and irreligion.

Determination in the mode of passion:
The determination through which a person remains committed for hard work with a desire for rewards, hungry for wealth, power, name and fame, and eagerness to satisfy his senses and bodily demands. He remained wrapped in lust, greed, envy, anger.

Happiness in the mode of Passion: Happiness which appears nectar in beginning but realized to be poison, later on, is in the mode of passion. Moving towards the path of sense gratification is easy in the beginning but gives immense pain to the person who gets himself in grip of material energy. Material energy puts the person in the complex net of anxieties, distress, immeasurable desires, and insatiable lust, greed, and envy. At the last moment of his life, he remains surrounded by immeasurable anxieties, desires, greed, and lust.

Happiness in the mode of ignorance:

 The happiness which arises from illusion, laziness, sleep. The happiness which is delusion from the beginning to the end and which does not know anything about self-realization. This happiness arises when a person accepts false things as true and does not change his stand even if someone shows him the right way.

Understanding in the mode of ignorance: Understanding through which one does consider irreligion to be religion and religion to be irreligion. The person always remains in illusion and darkness of ignorance. He always chooses the wrong sinful direction and path.

No creature is free from these modes of material nature in any world. 

Demigods are also under the influence of these modes of material nature.

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…

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.
