Bhagavad Gita Saram - 4
« on: May 04, 2009, 02:03:03 PM »
Bhagavan Ramana, in His selection, lays foremost emphasis on
the state of the man of self knowledge, and the utter peace he
enjoys.  This is underscored through the repetition in the conent
of the verses.  "Because the peace of God is with them, whose mind
and soul are in harmony, who are free from desire and wrath, who
know their own soul." (5.26).  "When a man surrenders all desires
that come to the heart by the grace of God finds the joy of God, then his soul from indeed found peace." (2.55).  "For the man who
forsakes all desires and abandons all pride of possession and of
self reaches the goal of peace supreme." (2.71).  "He whose peace
is not shaken by others, and before whom other people find peace,
beyond excitement and anger and fear --- he is dear to me." (12.15)
Desirelessness, self-harmony and perfect equanimity, hence, are
the preconditions fo peace.

Inherent in Bhagavan Ramana's selection of verses on the state of
the self-realized is the process by which we get beyond contraries
and beyond action, man's soul must rest ever in his inner spirit,
unwisdom must be corrected by the wisdom of the inner spirit.
Undertakings freed from anxious harmonized, with wrath and desire
gone, the man must keep 'silent his soul before freedom, (for)
he is in truth has attained final freedom.'
