One who has control
Over body but not mind
Is a hypocrite… // 3 – 6 //
The state of a hypocrite. He can dupe the world with his outwardly behaviour but he cannot fool Bhagwaan. Internally there is no change inside.
Isn’t the world like this today? Aren’t we like this? One behaviour at home, another in social life and yet another at work place. Geeta is clear that this is nothing but hypocrisy. In the pursuit of truth, this might be the phase when we transit from our dual self to our self, but can it be for life? Let’s think and change…
The shlok for your reference :
कर्मेन्द्रियाणि संयम्य य आस्ते मनसा स्मरन् ।
इन्द्रियार्थान्विमूढात्मा मिथ्याचार: स उच्यते ।।
Those who restrain the external organs of action, while continuing to dwell on sense objects in the mind, certainly delude themselves and are to be called hypocrites.
