Master the Mind - Episode 14

Get rid of Gunas by Jnana

In the fourteenth discourse of the Master the Mind Series,Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai narrates how the statue of Mother Annapoorneshwari came into being in one of the educational institutions of the mission in Karnataka, India. He sheds light on how Adi Shankaracharya, who composed the annapūrṇāstotra, prayed fervently to the Goddess to grant him jñāna and vairāgya as food and nourishment for the soul. Great souls like Adi Shankaracharya and Vivekananda are stellar examples of man seeking Divine grace for Higher Realisation and not for mundane things of the world. Acquisition of jñāna, which results in viveka and vairāgya, is mandatory for the attainment of a state of Self-Realisation. Elucidating on the concept of nirguṇa vs. saguṇa bhakti, Sadguru explains how eventually, bhakti culminates in jñāna-vairāgya that in turn leads to Self- Realisation, perfection, peace and immortality.
