Poetic Insights into the Gita – 6

Scriptures, right and wrong thinking

Scriptures contain injunctions righteous

What to do and not to do, for life pious

 

Heaven, hell as post-death dwelling

Deeds righteous or sinful, according

 

Injunctions confusing for worldly

Situations many, different personally

 

For god conscious, desireless

All his actions totally selfless

 

Scriptural injunctions of no use to him

Guiding all the time is Divine in him

 

Right and unambiguous is his thinking

Mentally upsetting is worldly thinking

 

Vedas talk of three gunas fundamental

Rajas and tamas focused on physical

 

Seeker shuns knowledge of physical

Takes only that of sattva, the spiritual

 

To the physical world, one transcendental

No more does he need knowledge scriptural
