#11 Bhagavad Gita Commentary in the Kriya Yoga Tradition 3/3
The topic of this lecture is from Chapter 2, verse 72 of the Bhagavad Gita: “That is the divine state; having realized it, one is never again bewildered. Established in that state at the time of passing from the body, one can awaken to the bliss of God-realization.”
Ryan discusses the following ideas:
Being in a body gives us time to realize that we are not the body, the mind, or the emotions.
When we realize who we are, we can be perfectly tranquil and perfectly happy anywhere, at any time.
Enlightened people can do spectacular things, or they can be the most normal person in the world. The key is their state of consciousness.
In meditation, we are endeavoring to bring our attention within, to hold it there, to let go of this sense of self, which we are not, and to exist free of any kind of conditioning.
Anything we think we are, we are to give it up. It’s only a stumbling block.
