Gita Madhurya -Swami Ramsukhdas

Chapter IV


How is the knowledge, which is gained by a perfect Karmayogi, gained by other strivers?

The striver who has controlled his senses, is devoted to spiritual practice and is full of faith, attains this knowledge and having attained this knowledge he promptly attains the Supreme Peace.(39)

What is the obstacle to attain this knowledge?

He, who himself lacks discrimination and has no faith in others and is possessed by doubt, goes to ruin. The doubting person has happiness neither in this world nor in the world beyond.(40)

What happens when doubt is dispelled?

He, who by equanimity has renounced affinity for all actions and by knowledge (about reality of actions) has dispelled all doubts, actions do not bind such a self possessed man.

Therefore, O Arjuna, having cut this ignorance-born doubt of your mind with the sword of knowledge, establish yourself in equanimity and stand up for the fight (performance of duty).(41-42)
