2.19 - 2.21: Dangerous Verses

10 min - Talk


James recites and translates verses 2.19 - 2.21 of the Gita, which he refers to as the dangerous verses. Krishna shares with Arjuna that the essence of the Soul or Spirit is unborn—it never dies, is eternal, everlasting, and ancient. James invites us to cultivate that state of clear seeing, harmony, and sustained integration.

Yes. Thank you for contextualizing these verses. They have never really sat well with me - but this brings in into a proper focus.

I struggled with these verses James...I have been trying to understand them with the mind only...but the comment you make about the sense of lack and fear playing a part in justifying violence does fit.  One who is afraid can oftentimes have distorted view of reality, our job is to seek clarity of THIS, using any / all of the tools / techniques Yoga showers us with!!
