Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
Performance of actions to comfort others or the desire to comfort others is 'sentience' while performance of actions for one's own comfort or desire for one's own comfort, is insentience'. Adoration and meditation also for one's own happiness, for a peaceful life and for honour and respect is also insentience. When there is predominance of the sentience, the man is endowed with the divine nature; but when there,is predominance of insentience, the man is endowed with the demoniac nature.
- Once a sage being perturbed said to me, "I have no faith in the Gita, what will happen to me? Because the Lord in the Gita has declared that he who is devoid of discriminative insight, has no faith, is of a sceptical nature. perishes." I asked him, "In which book is it mentioned that a man who has no faith. perishes?" tie replied, "In the GM." Then I said. "When you are getting perturbed by reading the Lord's utterance in the Gtta, then is it not your faith in the Got?' Hearing this, he was pleased.
