You outdid me, for I taught Geeta to one Arjuna, and you awakened many Arjunas round the globe”, remarked a devotee fondly.
Such was b profound influence of Gurudev’s Geeta discourses on the audience.
His talks have been compiled in this commentary – The Holy Geeta. This text of Gurudev is so popular that it has made its entry into corporate houses and five-star hotels.
Savita Chakravarty for relentless proof reading; Ramona Singh for the appealing cover design and book mark; Thomson Press for its commitment to fine details and technical chunmayananda. If the Upanishads are the textbooks of philosophical principles discussing man, world and God, the Geeta is a handbook of instructions as to how gira human being can come to live the subtle philosophical principles of Vedanta in the actual work-a-day world.
Shrimad Bhagawad Geeta, the Divine Song of the Lord, occurs in the Bhishma Parva of the Mahabharata, and comprises eighteen chapters, from the 25th to the 42nd. This great handbook of practical living swaml a positive revolution in Hinduism and inaugurated a Hindu renaissance for the ages that followed the Puranic Era.
In the Song of the Lord, the Geeta, the Poet-Seer Vyasa has brought the Vedic truths from the sequestered Himalayan caves into the active fields of political life and into the confusing nhagavad of an imminent fratricidal war. Under the stress 6f some psychological maladjustments, Arjuna got shattered in his mental equipoise and lost his capacity to act with true discrimination.
Lord Krishna takes in hand that neurotic mind of Arjuna for a Hindu treatment with Vedic truths. Religion is philosophy in action. From time to time an ancient philosophy needs intelligent reinterpretation in the context of new times, and men of wisdom, prophets, and seers guide the common man on how chijmayananda apply effectively the ancient laws in his present life.
To explain this, we will just try to review little the conception of the mind and its commentsry in our day: As the mind, so is the individual.
The Holy Geeta Commentary by Swami Chinmayananda
If the mind is disturbed, the individual is disturbed. If the mind is good the individual is good. The outer mind facing the object is called the objective mind; in Sanskrit we call it the Manas, and the inner mind is called the subjective mind; it Sanskrit, the Buddhi. But unfortunately, except for a rare few, the majority of us have minds that are split.
The greater the distance between these two aspects of the mind, the greater the inner confusion in the individual, and the greater the egoism and low desires which the individual comes to exhibit in life Through the five ‘gateways of knowledge’, the organs-of perception, all of us experience the world of objects around at all moments of our waking state.
The innumerable stimuli that react with our sense-organs receptorscreate impulses which reach the OBJECTIVE MIND and these impulses filter deep down to the subjective stratum through the intervening layers of individual egocentric desires.
The Diagram ‘N gives figuratively the design of each activity that man performs in the world outside when he consciously comes to react with a given set of stimuli. At each moment, man meets with different patterns of these stimuli, and thus constantly gathers new impressions in the ‘subjective mind’. Every set of impulses reaching it not only adds to the existing layers of impressions already in it but also gets coloured by the quality of these vasanas hoarded within.
When they are translated into action, the actions cat! All of us live constantly meeting a variety of experiences and at each incident, we perceive, react with the perceived and come to act in the outer field.
In this process, we unwittingly come to hoard in ourselves more and more dirt of new impressions. The ‘subjective mind’ gets increasingly granulated by overlapping signatures of our past moments.
These granulations swxmi the ‘subjective mind’ dull and opaque, and form, as it were, an impregnable wall between ourselves and the spiritual Divinity that shines eternally as pure Consciousness in all of us deep within the core of out personality.
The theory of Vedanta repeats that reduction of the vasanas is the means of volatilising the mind. When I look into a mirror and do not see my face in it, it is not because the mirror is not reflecting the object in front of it, but because the reflected image chinmaysnanda not perceptible tita my vision due to, perhaps, the thick layer of dust on the mirror. With a duster, when I clean the mirror, the act of cleaning does not CREATE the reflection of the face, but it only unveils the reflection which was already there.
Similarly, man is not aware today of his divine spiritual nature because the ‘subjective mind’ reflecting it is thickly coated with dull vasanas gathered by it during its egocentric, Passionate existence in the world.
