Query from Anu Kulkarni
In the last class, Dr. Hegde brought up three terms, Adidaivika, Adibhautika and Adhyatmika. Would you mind clarifying what they mean?
Totravetra+ eka= totravetraika , what sandhi is it ?
Response from Dr. Komal Prasad , Param Vedanta Team .
Pratibandha are obstacles for any effort. They can come from 3 sources.
1. Adidaivika= obstacles from supernatural forces
2. Adibhautika= obstacles from surroundings
3. Adhyatmika= obstacles from oneself, ill-health
Totravetra+ eka= totravetraika is Vriddhi sandhi
Query from Ruby Khanna
Is it possible to get the 2 other shlokas dr Hegde mentioned to be changed before eating - one was Annapurna and the other from chap 15
The 3 shlokas that Dr. Hegde Sir mentioned in today's(Aug 28th 2020) class are –
1) Annapoorne Sadapoorne
2) BG 4.24 - brahmārpaṇaṁ brahma havir brahmāgnau brahmaṇā hutam
brahmaiva tena gantavyaṁ brahma-karma-samādhinā
3) BG 15.14 - ahaṁ vaiśhvānaro bhūtvā prāṇināṁ deham āśhritaḥ
prāṇāpāna-samāyuktaḥ pachāmy annaṁ chatur-vidham
Query on Skill in Action 100%
In chapter 2 the topic on 3 Levels of Karma speak about Uttama, Madhyama, and Adhama Karma with examples that anyone doing Karma will be having 100% skill in that Karma. For example, a thief might be 100% skill in doing the selfish act of stealing someone for selfish motive.
My question is, if a thief steal someone but with the attitude of offering the theft item to Lord's feet - will that be a Karma yoga or not? He is not stealing for self and neither when he is acting, he is expecting a outcome.
Please share your thoughts.
