This is really a response to :


Thank You galaxy for the post.


That thread is closed for some reason.


Wisdom of course, will lead to better life. Gems of wisdom should be picked out from wherever one can.


If however, one who has taken the shelter of Bhagwan Sri Vishnu(Krshna)'s Lotus Feet , lands in any bad situation either due to past karma or lack of wisdom, he/she will be oblivious to the misery , embarrassment , criticism or insult at the soul level, and look at things as a passing cinema screen.


Miseries will fade in contrast to the Beloved Lord's Lotus Feet, Lotus Face, His beautiful smile, His calming glance and loving embrace......to the extent to which they are surrendered to the Lord.


Will the extent of Vairagya (renunciation) and detachment hinder one's learning from past ? While staying unwise is certainly not recommended, indifference to the reactions of the material world may perhaps lead to dissolving emotional duality of good bad, happiness sorrow ... showing highlights or symptoms of a 'trigunateet', one who has begun to transcend the modes of material nature (goodness-sattva, passion-raja, ignorance-tama). Plus , the Lord will make sure the devotee is worldly-wiser in the process.




BG 14.22-25: The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: O son of Pāṇḍu, he who does not hate illumination, attachment and delusion when they are present or long for them when they disappear; who is unwavering and undisturbed through all these reactions of the material qualities, remaining neutral and transcendental, knowing that the modes alone are active; who is situated in the self and regards alike happiness and distress; who looks upon a lump of earth, a stone and a piece of gold with an equal eye; who is equal toward the desirable and the undesirable; who is steady, situated equally well in praise and blame, honor and dishonor; who treats alike both friend and enemy; and who has renounced all material activities — such a person is said to have transcended the modes of nature.


BG 10.10: To those who are constantly devoted to serving Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me.

BG 10.11: To show them special mercy, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.
