I have been a staunch follower of my lord since day one of my life or maybe the time I was unborn. So here is a quote from the Bhagwat Gita I would like to share on the second day.
Well the quote if analysed deeply does not mean to become a complete saint or abandon the worldly activities. It is below that. The world is driven by hatred, fear, lust, and all the bad things which seem as something everyone of us is attracted to. If we go to the roots of the three “W’s”- why, what and when, we actually discover the detachment we should have and the solution of all our distractions. People who live the life in the influence of the physical world and yet manage to tackle their desires are the strongest people on earth. They actually reach the ultimate and can conquer oneself or ‘I’m which is hard to do. The conclusion is what is simply written in the quote above, shutting the physical world(control desires which want external illusions) and control the mind(of everything, of its demands and it’s wants) which leads to your ultimate and only freedom.
