DVD 15 (53:33)

हृत्वा द्वैतमहामोहं कृत्वा ब्रह्ममयीं चितिम्‌ 

लौकिके व्यवहारेऽपि मुनिर्नित्यं समाविशेत्  ॥१५॥

hṛtvā dvaitamahāmohaṁ kṛtvā brahmamayīṁ citim  /

laukike vyavahāre’pi munirnityaṁ samāviśet  //15//

॥ Concluding śloka of 15th chapter ॥

Munir, who is always focused in the thought of Parabhairava, he has [driven] all thoughts, all thoughts, all dvaita. Dvaita means . . .

JOHN: Duality.

SWAMIJI: Duality. Duality of thoughts, he has [driven] all away, and who is established in Parabhairava state, laukike vyavahāre’pi, in each and every action of his daily actions of daily life, he gets samāveśa (absorption) in Parabhairava, always; he is getting that, he sinks always into that [Parabhairava state]. He sinks and [returns] with glamour, sinks and [returns] with the glamour [of that state].448


448 “See that in your mind, all this ignorance and illusion of being separated from God consciousness, separated from the memory of God consciousness is carried away, is smashed, is vanished. You must see that. And hṛtvā brahmamayīṁ citim, and focus your mind to Brahman, to Lord Śiva, in each and every action of this universe. Laukike vyavahāre’pi, no matter whatever you do in this world, everything will become divine.” Bhagavad Gītā (1978).
