at the end of Instructions…

We are at the end of second part of Yoga Vedanta text Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

As stated several times earlier on this blog, yoga vedanta tradition would need a realized guru to progress on to the next stage.

Just to recap, the first part of six adhyayas ending with “Dhyana Yoga” or the yoga of meditation complete the first part. A yogi successful in Dhyana will realize the true nature of the individual as “witnessing consciousness”.

Only after realizing the individual aspect of the truth thoroughly, one naturally moves on to the “higher knowledge” of the LORD.

The second part ending in “Bhakti Yoga” leads to the true nature of LORD and starting of the fusion process.

The third part leading to “Moksha Sannyasa Yoga” is the final stage or also called as inquiring into the essential nature of “relationship” between the individual and the Ultimate Truth.

The mahavakya “tat tvam asi” has three words. The nature of “tvam” is the first part, the nature of “tat” is the second part and the meaning of “asi” is explained in the third part.

The first part is initiated by individual effort and needs full commitment of the individual. The second part is initiated by LORD and needs full attention of the individual. The third part has nothing new to teach. It is the same knowledge but explained in more subtle method and much more detail manner.

I personally do not intend to make blog posts based on the third part and let the individuals study the last six chapters of Srimad Bhagavad Gita from a realized sage directly.

All the successful devotees (bhaktas) with final set of doubts will surely get a GURU to clarify them!

Between the Bhagavan and the Bhakta there is nothing (third entity) that can obstruct the grace, knowledge and bliss.

Final Instruction (only for Successful Bhaktas):

Lord Declares:

सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज।
अहं त्वा सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः।।18.66।।

By thoroughly contemplating on what has been revealed; Leaving all attributes, duties, take refuge in ME alone (in the TRUE SELF alone). I (the LORD), will liberate you from all sins. Do not grieve!
