Pure yoga is one-pointedness ~Swami Lakshmanjoo

This is an a beautiful excerpt from the Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 as revealed by Swami Lakshmanjoo . . .

अपि चेदसि पापेभ्यः सर्वेभ्यः पापकृत्तमः  ।
सर्वं ज्ञानप्लवेनैव वृजिनं सन्तरिष्यसि  ॥३६॥
यथैधांसि समिद्धोऽग्निर्भस्मसात्क्रियतेऽर्जुन  ।
ज्ञानाग्निः सर्वकर्माणि भस्मसात्कुरुते तथा  ॥३७॥
नहि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते  ।
तत्स्वयं योगसंसिद्धः कालेनात्मनि विन्दति  ॥३८॥
श्रद्धावांल्लभते ज्ञानं तत्परः संयतेन्द्रियः  ।
ज्ञानं लब्ध्वा परां शान्तिमचिरेणाधिगच्छति  ॥३९॥
अज्ञश्चाश्रद्दधानश्च संशयात्मा विनश्यति  ।
नायं लोकोऽस्ति न परो न सुखं संशयात्मनः  ॥४०॥

api cedasi pāpebhyaḥ sarvebhyaḥ pāpakṛittamaḥ /
sarvaṁ jñānaplavenaiva vṛijinaṁ santariṣyasi //36//

yathaidhāṁsi samiddho ‘gnirbhasmasātkriyate ‘rjuna /
jñānāgniḥ sarvakarmāṇi bhasmasātkurute tathā //37//

nahi jñānena sadṛiśaṁ pavitramiha vidyate /
tatsvayaṁ yogasaṁsiddhaḥ kālenātmani vindati //38//

śraddhāvāṁllabhate jñānaṁ tatparaḥ saṁyatendriyaḥ /
jñānaṁ labdhvā parāṁ śāntimacireṇādhigacchati //39//

ajñaścāśraddadhānaśca saṁśayātmā vinaśyati /
nāyaṁ loko ‘sti na paro na sukhaṁ saṁśayātmanaḥ //40//

This is 26th śloka, 27th śloka, 28th śloka, 29th and 40th. Ah… 39th; śloka and… not twenty.

JOHN: 34th.

SWAMIJI: Yes.

JOHN: 35th.

SWAMIJI: 36th, 37th, 38th, 39th and 40th śloka, this is collective, it is kulakam, kulakam means it has got only one connection with each other.

Samiddho ‘bhyāsajātapratopattidārḍhyabandhena jñānāgnirbhavati yathā tathā prayatanīyam [comm. verse 36-40], the fire of knowledge, the fire of Parabhairava knowledge should be samidha, should be put to fire, should be put to glamour in flames-samidha–samidha means put to fire–so that this fire of Parabhairava knowledge catches flames all-round.

That way, prayatanīyam, you have to work out, you have to work whole heartedly so that it catches fire all-round, so that it leaves not one tinka anywhere without this fire. All is burned in that, all becomes one with that. Tathā prayatanīyam, that way you should put your belts tight and work out, so that it catches fire all-around. Tathā prayatanīyam, in one way or another way you have to work out. You have to work out with all your might, put all your might. Don’t think of any other thing to be done in this world.

Pavitraṁ hi jñāna samaṁ nāsti, there is no purer than Parabhairava knowledge, there is no other element purer that this. This is the purest element. What is purer element?

DENISE: Parabhairava.

SWAMIJI: The knowledge of Parabhairava, being Parabhairava. Because everybody has right to become Parabhairava.

Anyasya saṁvṛiddhyā pavitratvaṁ na vastuta, all other things are purified by samskāra, by white washing, by spraying of scent they become purer. This saṁvṛiddhi, saṁvṛiddhyā means by other elements, it is not natural purity. Natural purity comes only in Parabhairava state. All other things, which are other then Parabhairava–which are not exactly, nothing is left without Parabhairava–but as long as it is not known it seems to be that it is separated from Parabhairava. For those separated Parabhairava states you have to keep, you have to adopt some other element to keep it pure. But it is not natural, natural purity. Natural purity is found only in Parabhairava state. That is what he says.

Pavitratāṁ cāsya svayaṁ jñāsyati suprabudhatāyām, this purity he’ll know, the one who is blessed with śaktipāta-tivraśaktipāta, he will himself know how he has become purest element, purest one in this world. Atra ca śraddhāgmastatpara vyāpāratvaṁ jhagityeva āstikatvādasaṁśayatve sati utpadyate, for this you need only to believe it. Just believe will make you fit to rise in Parabhairava state, only belief. If you adopt belief, full belief in this that, “I am Parabhairava state, I am one with Parabhairava,” you’ll become Parabhairava. No matter if you are playing with kite, you’ll become Parabhairava. Only belief will insert you, belief will push you there. There is no other element, i.e. that you will do like this (pounding his chest), and by this . . . you can’t, it does not work.
