You Are Already Free

fullsizeoutput_1c“The vision of the Gita is that you are already free and you cannot be improved upon. Since you are already param-brahma, it is knowledge alone that liberates you. To gain it, you should find a teacher and ask for the knowledge. In spite of the availability of such teaching, however, there is no guarantee that you will gain the knowledge because the place where it must occur may not be ready. Knowledge has to take place in the mind. Physically, you may be a mature person, an adult, but it does not mean that the antagonist-karana, mind, is ready for the teaching. Certain viveka (discrimination) maturity, is necessary…. The mind that is necessary in order to receive the knowledge is accomplished by karma yoga.”
