Actions don’t give lasting happiness.<br /> Verse 4: Supreme love of your self. The immortality benefit. All your worries stop, no tension anymore. The instinct to do something to survive is produced by ignorance. Its a beautiful world.<br /> Verses 5-7: Everything is perfect. Teaching is perfect. No need for a new teaching. It does not generate desires. Turning everything over to the Lord. You are like a baby.<br /> Verse 8: Spirit of renunciation. You hurt yourself with the fear thought. Its good to get rid of things. Renunciation of worldy and spiritual duties.<br /> The wonderful power of desire to make the lifes of people better. Desire is your life force. Verse 9: For renunciate objects are value neutral because they are inert, matter. Value is projected of conscious beings on inert objects. You only experience the thought of an object. The location of objects teaching. Inference versus direct perception. The value of an object is projected by your conditioning depending on your values.<br /> <br /> More <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.de/seminare/interessengebiet/vedanta/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Vedanta seminars</a>.<br /> <br /> More english yoga seminars: <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/</a><br /> <br /> Please visit Yoga Vidya for more inspiring talks and spiritual community:<br /> <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/</a>.

Traditional versus modern style of teaching. Vers 1: Using intellect for justification is not useful. Devotion is directed to God. Treat the people around you as if they are God. Devotion is rational.<br /> Vers 2: Focus all of your attention on one topic: who am I? Samadhana. Love is willing attention. Love of what is right here and now. You are always present. You love your self. Selflessness. You are the goodness that makes goodness good. Hate is a perverted form of bhakti. Duality: Men are defined by women. You don’t love objects, you love love.<br /> Chasing love in objects is useless. Vers 3+4: You know you don’t die and get a security benefit. The worry goes away.<br /> Immortal love. Perfection benefit. Gain of knowledge, loss of ignorance. Enlightenment sickness. Love is your nature. You are not the body. You were here before your body was born.<br /> Solution is to accept the words of the scripture. Vers 5: Life is not jiva centered anymore. Free of passion for objects. No need to feel special. Vers 6: Feel wonderstruck because you understand and fulfilled the purpose in your life. You know you are love.<br /> <br /> More <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.de/seminare/interessengebiet/vedanta/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Vedanta seminars</a>.<br /> <br /> More english yoga seminars: <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/</a><br /> <br /> Please visit Yoga Vidya for more inspiring talks and spiritual community:<br /> <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/</a>.

Freedom as the number one priority in life. Nondual bhakti is exclusive love of the self. To progress spiritually you have to commit yourself to the vedic tradition: work through all stages. Skipping of the purification by karma yoga is not useful. Understand the progression. Take care of<br /> all instruments. Dual love is there to qualify for nondual love.<br /> Nondual relationship. Samsara is a zero-sum-reality. You can’t win and you can’t loose. Karma yoga is suitable to get out of samsara: prepares you for jnana yoga, jnana yoga gives you knowledge and knowledge sets you free. You need a noble idea for your life. All beings are a set of rules by Isvara that<br /> form their nature. Svabhava and svadharma of a human being. Nature of animals. Karma yoga dharma. Example of Arjuna. Karma yogis honor samanya dharma or universal<br /> values. Vishesha dharma or situational ethics have no simple formula. Dharma yoga. React appropriately in relation to dharma in every situation to avoid bad karma. Krishna: I am the desire that is not opposed to dharma. Adharma: Going against your nature or to go against universal values.<br /> Adharmic action creates mental and emotional agitation. Pollute the environment and living in it is adharmic. Svadharma of someone commited to Vedanta: be a karma<br /> yogi, develop discipline. Karma yoga is build into the indian society, that is a dharmic society. Svadharma and profession.<br /> Karma yoga makes less stressful. You start thinking: who is this Isvara? 4. Upasana. Listening, reasoning (reflecting and getting rid of opinions that are not in harmony with the teaching), actualize the knowledge “I am the self”. Getting rid of obstacles to perfect satisfaction: by continuing the sadhana. Total sense of confidence.<br /> <br /> More <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.de/seminare/interessengebiet/vedanta/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Vedanta seminars</a>.<br /> <br /> More english yoga seminars: <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/</a><br /> <br /> Please visit Yoga Vidya for more inspiring talks and spiritual community:<br /> <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/</a>.

Swami Vivekananda, Freud, consequences of technology. Psychological designation in Vedanta appeared. Multipath confusion. Better to integrate all parts of the psyche. All stages of devotion are necessary, must be practised. For karma yoga you need a guru and the scripture. Only a mature person can surrender to Isvara.<br /> Mantra “sadāśiva samārambhāṁ śaṅkarācāryamadhyamām...” The self is the guru. Self is beyond perception and inference. You need a guru because the tendency for self-deception is immense. Dead gurus don’t reveal your self-deceptions. You should manage your own life based on the knowledge. Desire produces anger, depression<br /> and delusion. Karma yoga as right action: dharmic lifestyle is necessary. 5 daily practices: worship teacher, worship of ancestors (tvam eva mātā...), worship deity, service to humanity, protect environment. Desire hides your self from you. Karma yoga turns an extroverted and subjective mind into an introverted and objective mind. Inner child becomes an inner adult. Relationship of guru and disciple: Krsna and Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. Sakhya bhava. Karma yoga is an<br /> appropriate use of your free will. Described in chapters 1-6 of the Bhagavad Gita.<br /> <br /> More <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.de/seminare/interessengebiet/vedanta/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Vedanta seminars</a>.<br /> <br /> More english yoga seminars: <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/</a><br /> <br /> Please visit Yoga Vidya for more inspiring talks and spiritual community:<br /> <a href="https://www.yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">yoga-vidya.org/english/seminars/</a>.
