Life Before BG 18.66

Too much of Self-trust

Too much Self-belief

Too much emphasis on the self

Work for expectation of reward

I you he we me feeling

Prayer to god for self and family emancipation

News Politics Soaps Films

Charity for expectation of some beneficial result

Self-praise for positive events

Criticizing others for personal misfortune

To enhance Material Prestige and role in society and unflinching endeavor towards gaining it

Expect praise from others for the endeavors

Identify body with the soul

Life Post BG 18.66

Self has melted and submitted to the will of the Supreme

Necessary actions performed without expectation of reward, surrendered to the Supreme

Treat every life force from the blade of grass to any other being equally

Prayers to God to be a benefactor of every life force

Totally shunning of sensational items like News Politics Soaps Films

Dedicating all results of action to the supreme

No further entanglement of Karma and its impact

Accept all that is granted by the supreme without any reservations

Identify the soul to be a supreme servant of the supreme in the form of Paramatma dwelling in the body and also as a supreme person in the spiritual planets.

In Summary:

It is to understand….everything is running in its own system….constantly struggling to understand itself—is the realisation of the ultimate liberation – for ultimate liberation, total non-interference is the key!

What i meant is self-endeavour is one of the means to attain liberation. However total surrender to Lord Shri Krishna BG 18.66 Mam Ekam Sharanam Vraja is the easiest but more difficult method to comprehend for a soul trying to endearing its path to attain liberation through its equivocal ways!

Or

Total Surrender to Our Ever Loving Lord Shri Krishna is the only way as surmised in this very blog post.

Just three words with a very strong affirmation or confirmation reassurance – ‘Do not fear” at the end.

"Knowledge is the ultimate perfection of self-realization.". (Srimad Bhagavatham 3.26.2) Trying to seek that knowledge through life experiences that leads to compassion, dispassion and ultimately satisfaction.
