  • True Knowledge Alone Gives Determination

    The true knowledge alone can give the final determination, which alone leads to practice and since practice alone pleases the Lord, knowledge (Jnana yoga) is considered to be the main part of the effort. Decision, practice and grace of God are spontaneous consequences. A long period is needed for knowledge to arrive at the decision. One-year time is taken by the student to study the subject. Examination and award of marks takes place in a very short period. Decision cannot come by momentary emotion, which is attained in Tapo yajna or devotion. Emotion without full knowledge basing the decision is called as Tapo yajna. Demons do that for attaining selfish ends. If the emotion or love is based on the full realization which is the base of determination (Buddhi yoga), it is called as Bhakti yoga. Lord said that he can be achieved by both together (Dadami Buddhiyogam…, Bhaktyatvananyaya…).

    People are very good in singing songs (Bhajans) but they cannot do any service to God involving sacrifice. Such activity is only Tapo yajna and not the Bhakti yoga. Due to lack of realization, which is based on the divine knowledge, they fail in sacrifice to God. Their aim is to achieve some worldly desires only as the case of demons. To certain extent, it is allowed in the beginning owing to their ignorance. But you should not be a child life long receiving chocolates to study. Put more effort on knowledge to arrive at the correct and doubtless determination, which leads to practice spontaneously.
