Haiku #18

Fix your intellect

And mind in Me, and you will

Always live in me… // 12 – 8 //

Have purposely kept the Chapter 12 for last. My favourite Chapter, as it describe the qualities of a Devotee. Before describing the qualities, in the Shlok, God tells His Devotee what he needs to do. He shows him the path. We need to tread on it. Will we?

The Shlok for your reference :
मय्येव मन आधत्स्व मयि बुद्धिं निवेशय
निवसिष्यसि मय्येव अत ऊर्ध्वं न संशय: ।।

Fix your mind on Me alone and surrender your intellect to Me. There upon, you will always live in Me. Of this, there is no doubt.

– Astu –

PS : I pause my efforts to write a Haiku on a shlok of every chapter of Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta. Has been an illuminating experience. I never expected any response from my readers but the way you all have responded is what I consider the Blessings of Maa Geeta. Will surely continue to write a Haiku on Geeta as and when She permits me too.

Thank you so much Readers!

    1. Yes Brother…
      The bliss I have experienced while writing them cannot be put into words. And also for this could stay in touch with Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta and Shree Krishna…
      Tysm for reading them. It means a lot to me…

      1. Ofcourse, the genuine heart effort attracts readers on its own. I am one of them. No publicity required. Genuine effort kindles lord in us and he in all likes to cherish that effort and thus kindles equal inquisitiveness in them to read. So, he reads his own piece through many hims. He is grand puppetaster 😎 and you an apt.inst for him! 🙂 I pray for god’s warm blessings on your family and may your kid(s) learn the meaning of truth exploration and from your local be unto Krishna and Athavale ji.
