Thought for the day 11th July 2004

あなたの心を世俗の関心から引き離し、神への探究に引きつけるもっとも重要な手段は、ヨーガとターガです。カーマ(欲望)は、ターガ(犠牲)によって征服されなければならず、ラーマ(神)はヨーガ(共通の目的に対して自己のすべての能力を結合すること)によって守護されなければなりません。欲望は知性を鈍らせます。それは判断を誤らせ、感覚への欲求を増大させ、物質的な世界への誤った魅力の虜とさせます。欲望が消失し、あるいは神への集中が増すとき、知性はもとの輝きを取り戻し、その光輝は内にも外にも神がおわすことを明らかにします。それは「アートマ サークシャカーラ」すなわち悟りの状態です。



The chief means by which you can detach your mind from the distractions of the world and attach yourself to the search for God are : Yoga and Thyaga. Kaama (desire) has to be got rid of by Thyaga (renunciation) and Raama (God) has to be secured by Yoga (the conjunction of all your faculties for a common purpose). Desire dulls the intelligence; it perverts judgement; it sharpens the appetite of the senses; it lends a false lure to the objective world. When desire disappears or is concentrated on God, intelligence shines in its pristine splendour; and that splendour reveals the God present within and outside. That is 'Atma-saakshatkaara' or Self-realization.

- Baba
