BHAGAVATHA DHARMAM – Fifth and Sixth Skandham - Swami Abhedananda
Lord Sri Krishna is the charioteer of your body-chariot. If you realize this truth, your chariot will definitely reach its goal. On the contrary, if the mind controlled by the senses happens to be the charioteer, it will fall into some deep pit and be shattered.
Everyday after taking bath, sit at a solitary place and worship God. The preliminary sadhanas for a beginner are the following:-
(i)Service and doing pooja to God;
(ii)Chanting the names of God:
(iii) Singing the hymns of God;
(iv) Company of holy men and listening to Stories of God.
(v) Reading the scriptural texts;
(vi) Surrendering all actions to God;
(vii) Recompensing for all sins committed;
(viii) Surrendering the fruits of all actions to God.
If your eyes are sparkling with love and your mind is broad, you are dearest to God Do not ask for anything from God. Asking for something is nothing but trading. If you ask for material gains in return to your worship of God, you are a trader. Giving less and taking more is the trait of a trader. Lead a very humble and simple life. Keep the mind out of reach for worldly desires.
