The 3 Steps to Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Bliss

Please read the text below before watching the video.

If you want something, the only place you can find it is within yourSELF, using your own mental power. That’s what Krishna said in SBG 6:5.

उद्धरेदात्मनात्मानं नात्मानमवसादयेत् |
आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बन्धुरात्मैव रिपुरात्मनः || ६ ५ ||
atmaiva hyaat-mano bandhur-
aatmaiva ripur-aatmanaha (SBG 6:05)

You must lift yourself with your own mind and should not degrade yourself. The mind is a friend as well as the enemy of the Self.

Asking for out-of-turn divine favours has not been taught in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Remember that when there is an expectation, there is bound to be pain. This is the case even in personal relationships. By working for what you want, you either get what you worked for, or in the event you do not succeed, you would have at least gained experience.

The two prime takeaways from the Srimad Bhagavad Gita are Nishkaama Karma or selfless action, and Self-Realisation.

The pitiful situation is that most people who are undergoing severe challenges in life, believe that there is some separate external power that ‘gives’ them good or bad. Such a belief is so deep-rooted in the minds of people that it has become the baseline of almost everyone’s thought process, and it is one of the prime causes they find it hard to get solutions to their challenges.

Whereas, once you realise that there is nothing beyond the AHAM ASMI, there are two things that can happen:

  1. You come to terms with your situation and find bliss in it,


  2. If you are still left with excessive Rajas along with Sattva, you will think, create and work for the world’s welfare, and through that, attain the final goal

People complain, ‘Why me?’ or ‘Why are the same things happening to me again and again?’ thinking that there is someone up there who is unhappy or cross with them about the actions they did in ‘previous lifetimes’ and is causing them all the trouble. It is true that ‘past Janmas’ are usually the reason given for the good and bad in one’s life, but the fact is that character and behavioural traits stem from genetic information encoded in the linear sequence of nucleotides within DNA.

Strange as it may sound, the thought of victimhood, as a matter of fact, comes from one’s delusion of grandeur that they are separate from nature or some special being and hence are entitled to the ‘good things’ in life!

Patterns repeat simply because one’s attitude attracts certain kinds of events, situations, and people in life. This is where introspection greatly helps. It aids one in finding their traits, which they have assumed to be normal, not realising that it is exactly those traits that are ‘inviting’ those situations in their life.

Never forget that the whole of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita is about fighting this war within one’s own head.

It’s common for people to complicate things unnecessarily, isn’t it? Sadly, the Vedic Dharma, which has Vedanta at its peak, has become a ritualistic religion plagued by fake spiritual leaders and teachers.

As long as there are gullible and ignorant people, there will be manipulative individuals taking advantage of them. Fear and doubt are highly potent tools used for mass manipulation, with concepts such as duality, heaven, sin, paradise, and hell.

Even among those interested in spirituality, many lack the curiosity to explore and learn for themselves, blindly accepting anyone who looks and sounds like a spiritual leader. This wildfire of ignorance is further fanned by the theatrical costumes, hair, gait, and other such features that famous ‘godmen’ and ‘godwomen’ possess and use.

I would say that adults who force their children to believe in literal interpretations of scriptures such as the Puranas, Mahabharata, Ramayana, and even the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, cause significant damage to their intelligence, intellect, and overall psyche.

Instead, we can teach children philosophy by explaining the allegory behind each character, as I did with my son. By gaining SELF-knowledge, we can lead an enriching, fulfilling, and joyful life, free of fear and doubt, and an eternal state of mind that is full of awe and gratitude towards nature.

Vedanta is the highest stage of Vedic studies for people with questions about life, existence, and death. It’s simple to find the necessary resources online, such as PDF files of the various Upanishads.

One of my previous posts and videos titled “The two truths in life” can also help clear up impurities in the mind in the form of dualities, non-Vedantic and irrational beliefs, fears, and all kinds of negative emotions which can be highly destructive to individuals.

When seeking answers in medicine, isn’t it natural and sensible to ask a qualified and experienced medical professional rather than a sixth-grader who excels at biology? Not understanding the allegory in Vedic scriptures and taking them literally is like remaining in grade six or so and refusing to go higher.

This presentation ‘The 3 Steps to Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Bliss,’ is aimed at making things further uncomplicated to turn life into a Healthy, Happy, Peaceful, Fearless, and Fulfilling one.


One more thing, particularly for people above forty or so: Age is merely a number, and therefore, how young or old you feel depends purely on how and what you feel about yourself and how well you care for your body and mind. Follow the three steps and you will be fine.

Thank you.

Stay blessed.

Jai Shri Krishna.
