Gita Jayanthi Classes –KARMA SANNYASA Chapter. 5
Contributed By Smt Indumati
Free from pairs of opposites
•Neither likes nor dislikes
•Neither attachment nor aversion to worldly things
•Neither appreciation nor criticism is important
•Neither success nor failure bothers
•Neither joy nor sorrow
ØTherefore free from samsara
ØSanyasa is a state of mind & not any outwardly uniform
Krishna’s revolutionary statement cleanses the idea of renunciation from all its external embellishments
To go beyond the pairs of opposites is to transcend the mind
Such pairs of opposites are the wheels on which the mind rolls forward earning the experiences of life.
•Comparison is the only way of understanding given to man Eg., I can understand light only with reference to my knowledge of darkness
•If there is no contrast for a thing, we cannot gain knowledge of that thing
•Comparison & contrast are methods of knowing for the instrument of mind & intellect
•Transcending the comparison & contrast, free from pairs of opposites is true sanyasa
•He is a true sanyasi, who has gone beyond the perception of contrast
•The one who has transcended the inner instrument of mind & intellect
•Dvesha comes when we have dvandwa
•Selfish work involves you in work for personal gains
•Selfishness arises when we compare ourselves with others
•But when we develop relationship with GOD, we get rid of bondages effortlessly
Sukham bandhaat pramuchyate
•Develop this thought, know that everything is a gift from GOD
•This can lead us to our ultimate goal

Contributed By Dr Suman
Ignorance is the root cause of our problems
Treatment is jñānam
Darkness can only be removed by light
Path for moksha is only one à jñāna-yoga
How to gain this self knowledge?
And what is this true higher self ?
