Another gem from the conclusion of Chapter 4 from the Bhagavad Gita, In the Light of Kashmir Shaivism, by Swami Lakshmanjoo, on the importance of awareness.
Whatever action you do according to the way of your organs, that action will become divine only when there is awareness.Swami Lakshmanjoo
DVD 4.3 (51:51)
विधत्ते कर्म यत्किञ्चिदक्षेच्छामात्रपूर्वकम् ।
तेनैव शुभभाजः स्युस्तृप्ताः करणदेवताः ॥४॥
vidhatte karma yatkiñcidakṣecchāmātrapūrvakaṁ /
tenaiva śubhabhājaḥ syustṛptāḥ karaṇadevatāḥ //4//
॥ Concluding śloka of 4th chapter ॥
Whatever a man does, whatever activity, whatever action a man does, any individual does, according to the ways of his own organs, according to the desires of his own organs, tenaiva śubhabhājaḥ syuḥ, by that, to fulfill the desire of his own organs, he will become seated in the state of supreme Parabhairava 137.
137 “Whatever action you do according to the way of your organs, that action will become divine only when there is awareness. Go on doing your actions according to the nature of your organs, go on doing that. Go to movies, go to any disgusting thing you can do, but [do it] with awareness. When you are watching your breath, everything will be divine. Tenaiva śubhabhājaḥ syustṛptāḥ karaṇa devatāḥ. Your organs will just carry you towards that center of God consciousness.” Bhagavad Gītā (1978).
