Gita Jnana Yajna in Jayanagar
Pujya Swami Brahmananda conducted a Geeta Jnana Yajna in Kannada from 1st to 8th March, 2020 at Sri Prasanna Anjaneya Swamy Temple, Ragigudda on Bhagavad Gita Chapter – 6. The Yajna was inaugurated by Pujya Swamiji himself along with Sri K P Rao, President of the temple.
Pujya Swamiji emphasised that real sadhana is to keep the mind pure and calm amidst the onslaught of dualities in life. The restless depressed mind itself will have to be calmed down through self effort. It has to be clearly understood that every conceivable entity is not ‘ME’ as ‘I’ am different from them; they belong to the impermanent finite Prakruti and can never provide permanent infinite happiness. It is extremely important not to fall into the trap of endless desires of the mind that is always an extrovert but watch carefully every thought nipping it in the bud never allowing it to get converted into actions that are sure to cause bondage. The best method to control the agitated mind is through Dhyana and our rishis through personal experience have evolved the correct techniques that just need to be followed religiously with sincere faith. It is absolutely necessary to have regular moderate habits and lead a disciplined life at the physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual levels to control the senses and mind. Control of the ever turbulent mind is no doubt a very difficult task but with consistent and regular practice it is possible to calm the agitated mind to withdraw from attractions of the outer world to get rooted in the true nature of everlasting peace, joy & tranquility.
The Yajna was very well attended by hundreds of sadhaks daily.
