We say yesterday how when one is free of the body-mind complex, one becomes a gunateetha. But how does one practically achieve this?
Krishna answers in the 14th Chapter of the Gita: “Through single-pointed, unswerving devotion!”
A doubt might arise. “But we see so many devotees around us, thronging temples and prayer halls. But they all also don’t seem that happy in their own lives – definitely not like what gunateethas are supposed to be…”
The focus word here therefore is “single-pointed” and/or “unswerving” aka unwavering.
As devotees, do we focus exclusively on the Lord? Or do we give him a small slice of time – like a few minutes a day or week? Is He the first thought we wake up with and the last thought we sleep with? And what of the millions of thoughts in between?
There is much introspection to be done for me!
