Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
Desire for pleasure and prosperity, is the greatest obstacle to this fine resolve. It is the desire, for mundane pleasures which induces him to acquire money, honour and praise etc. Thus the intellect of the irresolute, is scattered and endless (GIta 2/41). But, if he has the resolve only to realize God, this resolve is so sacred and powerful, that the Lord becomes ready to account, even a most sinful one, righteous. It is merely through his resolve, that he soon becomes righteous and attains eternal peace (GIta 9/30-31).
A Common man, identifies the self with the body and assumes his affinity for the body, mind and intellect etc. But, everyone can realize the fact, that he is the same, from the childhood to the present time while his body, senses, mind and intellect etc., have changed. He should firmly believe this fact, at the present moment (a common man tries to understand this fact with his intellect, while this is something which is to be known, by the self).
