Lord Krishn teaches in Bhagavad Gita:
“Then that goal should be sought for,
after arriving at which
one does not have to turn back again,
with a sense of total submission to that primal God
whence all worldly life is born.”
But how to effect the quest for this God?
The Yogeshwar lays down that self-surrender is an essential condition for it.
There should be the feeling that “I am at the mercy of God”-the Infinite Being
from whom the primordial world-tree has sprouted and grown.
This tree cannot be cut down without seeking shelter under him.
Lord Krishn then speaks about the signs
one may realize that the tree has been cut down.
“Men of knowledge who are free from vanity and delusion,
victorious against the evil of infatuation,
ever-abiding in the Supreme Spirit,
total devoid of desire,
liberated from the contradictions of joy and grief,
achieve the eternal goal.”
The destruction of vanity, delusion, infatuation,
desire and of the contradictions of pleasure and pain is possible
only by complete self-surrender to and abiding constantly in God.
Only through this do men of true wisdom attain to the eternal state.
The world-tree cannot be severed without this attainment
renunciation is needed up to this point.
