Is this man truly like scattered patches of clouds because his mind is divided and he is confused?

If a small patch of cloud appears in the sky,
it can neither precipitate rain nor join other clouds,
and within moments the wind destroys it.

Very much similar to this puny,
isolated cloud appears the passive
unpersevering man
begins with an enterprise
then discontinues his efforts.

Is this man
truly like scattered patches of clouds
because his mind is divided
he is confused?

Arjun wishes
to be enlightened on
what finally happens to such a man?
Is he destroyed?

If so he has missed both
worldly enjoyment.

But what is his final end?

O the mighty armed....!!!And Lord Krishn
“Bhagavad Gita”
“This man,
O Parth,
destroyed neither in this world nor in the next because,
my brother,
one who performs good deeds
never comes to grief.’’

Arjun is addressed as “Parth”
he has turned his mortal body itself into a chariot to proceed to his goal.
Lord Krishn tells him
the man who deviates from yog,
because of his mind’s fickleness,
not destroyed in this world or in the next.

This is so because
a doer of good deeds,
of God-related deeds,
never damned.

    Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:

    “The righteous man
    who deviates from the path of yog achieves
    celestial merits and pleasures
    for countless years after which he is reborn in the house
    a virtuous
    and noble man or fortunate and thriving man.”

    What a paradox that the man who has fallen from yog enjoys in the worlds of the virtuous satisfaction of the same desires for sensual pleasure by which his restless mind was lured away from the appointed way in the mortal world! But this is God’s synoptic way of providing him a glimpse of all he wanted, after which he is reborn in the house of a noble man-a man of righteous conduct.

    Lord Krishn sings further:

    “Or he is admitted to the family of discerning yogi
    and such a birth is truly the most rare in the world.”

    If the deviating Soul is not reborn in the house of a virtuous or affluent man, he is granted a birth which provides him admission to the family of a yogi.In the households of noble men, righteous influences are imbibed right from childhood.

    But, if not reborn in such houses, he gains admission not to the house of a yogi but to his kul as one of his pupils. Such were men like Kabir, Tulsidas, Raidas, Valmiki and others like them who, though not born in the houses of noble and affluent men, were admitted as pupils to the families of yogi.

    A birth in which the merits (sanskar) inherited from a previous life are further refined by association with an accomplished teacher, a realized sage, is indeed the most rare.

    Being born to the yogi does not mean being born as their physical offspring. Well might children be born to a yogi before he had given up home and regard him, out of attachment, as father, but in truth a sage has no one whom he can regard as his family.

    One hundred times the concern he has for his own children is the concern he has for his faithful and obedient pupils. They, the pupils, are his real Children.Accomplished teachers do not admit pupils who are not endowed with the requisite sanskar.

    HE adds further:

    “He naturally bears with him into his new birth
    the noble impressions (sanskar) of yog from his previous existence,
    and by dint of this he strives well for perfection
    that comes from the realization of God.”

    The merits he had earned in his previous body are spontaneously restored to him in his new birth, by virtue of which he sets out to achieve the ultimate excellence, that is God.

    Humble Wishes!!!
