Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Know yourself, know your destiny, mind your own business and don't interfere in other's destiny, unless what you are doing appears to be part of your destiny too.

Sacrifice means the sacrifices you have to make to acheve your destiny.

We are all on the wheel [unless we  are privileged enough to be at the hub], what we do must be guided by destiny and not desire

A description of the experience

The Bhagavad Gita [translated by W J Johnson]

Know that action originates from Brahman – Brahman whose source is  the imperishable.  Therefore all pervading Brahman is eternally established in the sacrifice

Whoever in this world does not turn the wheel thus set in motion, Partha, lives in vain, making a pleasure garden of his senses, intent upon evil…

Therefore without attachment, always do whatever action has to be done; for it is through acting without attachment that a man attains the highest…………

………It is better to practise your own inherent duty deficiently than another’s duty well.  It is better to die conforming to your own duty; the duty of others invites danger

The source of the experience
