|GOD'S COMMAND AND LIBERATION|
|February 13, 1999 |
What is otherwise binding to the rest of the world, with God's aagnyaa (command) becomes the reason for moksha (liberation) for a devotee. With the flu, the same virus that cures the sickness, when taken properly as medicine prevents the sickness. Lord Krishna tells Arjun that killing his relatives will be his path to liberation. On the other hand, for ascetics, even though they are careful to not even pluck a fruit, because it comes from themselves, it does not guarantee liberation. Without God's aagnyaa and bhakti (devotion), even doing "nothing" is binding!
