Notes from Swamiji Lecture This Morning:
Ignorance leads to desire which leads to action.
Entire human life is based on these three.
Ignorance develops unnecessary desires and we are running around fulfilling them.
All doubts need to be dispelled.
State of clarity = no other experience in the world when you have no doubts.
Nothing bothers you because you understand everything.
Student: But he’s been nasty to you Swamiji…
Swamiji: That’s his svadharma. What do I have to do with someone else’s svadharma?
Student: But he’s stolen your money.
Swamji: Obviously I’ve done some karma that I should lose it. One gets what he deserves.
Student: But people are exploiting others. Corruption is rampant.
Swamiji: Where there is passivity, aggressiveness will overpower. Everything is clear.
Student: People are dying.
Swamiji: All that is born must die.
Student: But this person is not given a chance, he’s so good.
Swamiji: A brick that is fit for the wall will not lie on the ground.
Student: But he’s so spiritual, so eminent, he’s doing all sorts of mean activities.
Swamiji: A hawk that is soaring in the sky; eyes on the carcass below. Clarity. Clarity. Nothing bothers you. It’s ignorance that bothers you.
Student: But such a good man, a wonderful man, he’s done -a lot of service for humanity. He died so young Swamiji.
Swamiji: His prarabda is over. His prarabda karma is over.
Swamiji: But what?
Student: But I’m disturbed.
Swamiji: Because you’ve done wrong karma.
There is nothing in the world that is not explained. So clear. So precise. When there’s no agitation, there’s bliss. And that comes through clarity. All doubts dispelled. - Want your doubts dispelled? Come to India with @ericpaskel Paskel and I and visit THIS MASTER!!! HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ANYTHING SO CLEAR AND SO TRUE? All in one sentence...
