Bhagavad Gita sings:
ततः पदं तत्परिमार्गितव्यं
यस्मिन्गता न निवर्तन्ति भूयः।
तमेव चाद्यं पुरुषं प्रपद्ये।
यतः प्रवृत्तिः प्रसृता पुराणी॥१५-४॥
tataḥ padaṁ tatparimārgitavyaṁ
yasmingatā na nivartanti bhūyaḥ
tameva cādyaṁ puruṣaṁ prapadye
yataḥ pravṛttiḥ prasṛtā purāṇī||15-4||
“Then that goal should be sought for,
arriving at which one does not have to turn back again,
with a sense of total submission to that primal God
all worldly life is born.”
But how to effect the quest for this God? Self-surrender is an essential condition for it. There should be the feeling
“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.
Self surrender is certainly an essential condition
to effect the quest for God.
This leads to traverse upon
“Path of Self Realization”
