Explaining Gita verses - (2)
« on: October 24, 2008, 04:21:51 PM »
Again, one day a devotee asked for the meaning and purport of
Verse 7.14, commencing, "dhyvi heysha guna mayi, mama maya

Bhagavan Ramana replied:

My Maya which is made up of various characteristics cannot easily
be crossed.  Only those who surrender to Me, verily cross this maya.
Here, there is a description of four types of devotees.  These are
a) one who suffers in this world, b) one who has got desire for
Jnana, c) one who yearns wordly wealth, d) the Jnani, the Self
realized. (7.16).  Of these, Krishna says that the Jnani, who desire
only the Self constantly is most dear to Him. (7.17).

"Wherever, Gita says:  give it to Me, I am everything, the "me" and" I"
refers only to the Self.  Atma, according to Jnani is Krishna, the Self,
and not the God, with the disc, the conch shell, and the mace."
