Bhagavad Gita Saram - 9
« on: May 05, 2009, 12:25:31 PM »
Neera Kashyap continues.....

Bhagavan Ramana selects two other verses that are a hallmark
of His own direct path of merging the mind in the Heart.  "... let
the seeker quietly lead the mind into the Spirit, and let all his
thougts be silence. (6.25), and ".... whenever the mind unsteady
and restelss strays away from the Spirit, let him ever and for ever
lead it again to the Spirit. (6.26)

In Bhagavan Ramana's selection of the 42 verses, the Bhagavad Gita
Sara, are thus highlighted the themes of the state of a jnani, the paths of love and light that lead to Self Knowledge, the state of eternal Spirit, the Heart as the centre of all, reaching the abode Supreme -- the eternal refuge of the seeker and the sadhana of silence.

The order in which the 42 verses have been set by Bhagavan Ramana also gives us insights into how they unfold.  The knower is first established followed by an assurance that the divine lives in every
being.  Though death follows life and life death, the eternal spirit
the Self, is never born and never dies.  While interwoven in creation, the Spirit is pure from matter. It is only the man of oure vision, free
from attachments, contraries and desires who reaches this abode and not the one who follows desire.  It is he who sees that the Lord of
all is the same in all, immortal in mortality.
