Rejecting Guru’s Teachings Leads to Destruction of One’s Own Self
ये त्वेतदभ्यसूयन्तो नानुतिष्ठन्ति मे मतम् |
सर्वज्ञानविमूढांस्तान्विद्धि नष्टानचेतस: || 3.32||
ye tvetad abhyasūyanto nānutiṣhṭhanti me matam
sarva-jñāna-vimūḍhāns tān viddhi naṣhṭān achetasaḥ|| 3.32||
BG – Ch. 3- Ver. 32:
Those who reject my teachings, however, lack understanding and discrimination, and hence disregard these concepts, resulting in their own destruction.
Mental irritation will decrease as you obtain knowledge and begin to employ your mind. Your acts will become flawless, and you will achieve success. And you’ll be free of desire as a result. Our vaasanaas are the main impediment to karmayoga. When a person is under the influence of vaasanaas, their behaviours are motivated solely by self-interest.
When we dwell in unpleasant emotions, our mind recognises that we are making a mistake. However, because our vaasanaas have taken over the intellect, it is unable to operate, and we end ourselves on the wrong track. We are then ruined as a result of our defiance of nature’s laws.
Faith becomes a prerequisite for accepting the Bhagavad Gita’s divine teachings. Rather than criticizing the teachings, we must surrender our intellect to whatever it cannot comprehend at the time. Whatever the intellect cannot comprehend at the time, it frequently rejects as false.
People cannot distinguish between the pure and the impure, the righteous and the unrighteous, despite the fact that Shree Krishna’s teachings are delivered for the wellbeing of souls. Because they reject the way to ultimate salvation and continue to rotate in the cycle of life and death, such people bring about their own ruin.
