When you look upward into the space of the sky otuside yourself,
If there are no thoughts occuring that are emanations projected,
And when you look inward at your own mind inside you,
If there exists no projectionist who projects thoughts by thinking them,
Then your own subtle mind will become lucidly clear without anything being projected.

THE GLORY OF THE MOTHER DIVINE
Devi Mahatmyam, Chandi Path or Durga Saptashati is part of Markandeya purana attributed to Rishi Markandeya. Devi Mahatmyam consist of 700 slokas which are recited during the Sharad Navaratri (Celebration of the Nine Nights of Mother Divine).

All the asuras and devas in this presentation are the indwelling asuras and devas (laws of nature) affecting our body, mind and soul (jiva). Devi kills these demons in us. Body and mind are products of prakrti (matter) while the individual self (atman) is pure by itself. The soul (jiva) because of its association and proximity to the body, mind takes a load of malas (impurities).

Here described three stages of development help attain full realization: eradication tamasic malas by karma yoga with the help of Mahakali, eradication of rajasic vikshepa (gales of desire) sakti by upasana with the help of Mahalakshmi, removal of ajnana associated with sattva by knowledge with the help of Mahasarasvati. Nine days of Navaratri correspond to three days each of the deities and struggle of the soul in defeating the inner asuras (demons). The tenth day is vijayadasami that marks the victory over the asuras, emancipation and realization.

This texts are transcripts  of Maharishi's lectures without intervention. However, during the editing of the book it is possible that we misinterpreted some parts of the text. Therefore, we will be grateful for any suggestion or comments considering the authenticity of Maharishi's word.

 


As our notes are uncompleted, we are looking for other chapters of Maharishi's Commentary on Bhagavad-Gita.


Maharishi's translation of Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7, Verse 20:


Those whose knowledge has been carried away by this or that desire resort to other Gods, observing this or that rule, led by their own nature.


In his commentary of Chapter 7, verse 20, Maharishi makes the distinction between all the different Laws of Nature (Gods) that individually promote different streams of relative life and evolution as compared to the Home of all these Laws of Nature --- the ultimate basis and all encompassing WHOLENESS (Transcendental Pure Consciousness --- the Self) which is more than the collection of parts.


Maharishi's commentary:
The sequence of words is important.
Contentment is gained by resorting to Being, desires are fulfilled by resorting to different Gods*. Gods are pleased through specific channels** of observances, and modes of observances may be selected according to one's own nature. This shows that there are various ways to please one God.
Here the contrast is between resorting to Me and resorting to Gods. This verse shows how going through various desires one takes 'many births', as stated in the previous verse.
Those for whom the goal of life is obscure keep themselves engaged in the activity of maintaining life. They see not why and for what life is to be maintained. All their intelligence and strength is used for the purpose of amassing more comforts of  life, and their desires are concentrated on what will bring them greater material glories. In their attempt to fulfill their increasing desires, they turn to higher powers in Nature and follow the prescribed rites and ways to win their blessings. 'This or that rule' means some specific rites prescribed by the scriptures.
'As different men have different likes and dislikes, so also different Gods, or higher powers in Nature, have their own tastes, their own likes and dislikes.. The rites that are prescribed in the scriptures to please a certain God are set forth according to the nature of that God. Following those rites, the devotees of Gods receive blessings to fulfill their desires.
'Knowledge has been carried away' means Self Consciousness and Divine Consciousness, has been distorted, transcendental Self Consciousness has been replaced 'by this or that desire'. The teaching is that desire distorts the state of Being. Thinking and desiring are opposed to the state of Being. The state of Transcendental Consciousness, or the state of Being, which is gained during Transcendental Meditation, is disturbed when the mind comes out in some thought. What one thinks is immaterial in this case. It is the rising of a thought that brings the mind out of that state of Pure Consciousness. That is why the Lord says 'this or that desire'. Even if one thinks of God it is a thought, and with this thought the mind comes out of Pure Consciousness. So the teaching is that desire or thought takes one out of one's essential divine nature.
Another teaching that is implied here is that it is not an arbitrary principle that desire inevitably forces the mind out of the inner divine nature of transcendental Self Consciousness. It is not true for everyone that knowledge is led away by this or that desire. To give this idea the Lord says 'those whose knowledge...'. This means there may be those whose knowledge is not carried away by desires. They are those for whom the state of transcendental Self Consciousness, or Being, is so concentratedly infused into the nature of their minds that even when they are out of the field of thought and action their consciousness is held by Being.
In this state they may entertain this or that desire and engage themselves in any activity. They may even undertake to worship other Gods, but they will not lose their eternal freedom in Divine Consciousness.
This verse does not mean to condemn desires and worship of other Gods according to one's 'own nature'; it only deplores the state of mind of those who have not gained a firm fixity of Being and who have not secured for themselves a steadfast state of Being --- who are like those who plunge into water without knowing how to swim.
'Safety first' should be the principle of everyone's life. The depth of the pond will swallow anyone who is unaware of how to maintain oneself on the surface..
The world of desire and action will rob anyone of his natural state of divine bliss if he has not equipped himself with the knowledge and experience of Being, which alone is capable of maintaining his state of divine freedom in his life in the world.
