A zoom talk by Ravi Ravindra
Sunday 21st April – 6pm UK Time
In the Bhagavad Gita Krishna says that those devotees are exceedingly dear to him who carry out the dharma (duty, responsibility, obligation, right action) taught by Him. However, an action cannot be right unless the actor is right. To be a right actor a searcher needs to practice yoga. Krishna refers to many kinds of yoga, but the main yoga that He teaches is Buddhi yoga, the yoga of awareness. [BG 2.39, 10.10, 18.57].
Buddhi yoga has both a psychological aspect as well as a cosmological one. A searcher practicing buddhi yoga can be aware of the call from the trans-personal spiritual energy and bring the appropriate response from the personal physical energy. The right response sometimes requires a physical action, sometimes right knowledge, sometimes meditation, and sometimes submission in devotion and love to the Mysterious One. Buddhi yoga coordinates the various yogas in a person like a conductor in an orchestra sometimes calls drums, sometimes strings and sometimes flute.
