Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
(b) A person is afraid, lest he should act against the will of parents, teachers and saints and against the ordinance of scriptures. In reality, this is no fear. This fear, leads to fearlessness. Actually this sort of fear, is desirable for a striver, because it leads him to spiritual progress.
- In mundane pleasures there is fear of diseases, in high family there is fear of downfall, in riches there is fear of the king, in honour there is fear of destitution, in power there is fear of enemy, in beauty there is fear of agedness, in the scriptures there is fear of debate, in virtues there is fear of evil persons and in the body there is fear of death. Thus all the worldly things are full of fear, it is only dispassion which is free from fear (Bhartrharivairagyatarakam).
- The aim of human life is decided before this human life is bestowed upon us. We have to realize that aim, rather than to decide it.
