On the subject—absolute truth and the yoga system. In continuation of the same subject matter. And just time to see, why Arjuna the great hero of Mahābhārata declined to accept this system. And Therefore today's subject matter is: Arjuna declines.

Now, Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa while instructing on the yoga system to Arjuna. And he had only . . . (indistinct) . . . to the last point of realization. It is called samādhi. And the symptoms of such samādhi is explained in this way:

yatroparamate cittaṁ
niruddhaṁyoga-sevayā
yatra caivātmanātmānaṁ
paśyann ātmani tuṣyati
(BG 6.20)

Now by the progress of yoga one should appreciate. One should know himself. There is no necessity of recommendation by others, whether I am a great yogī or not. My advancement does not depend on the appreciation of others. But I must not cheat myself. I must not think myself as the Supreme Lord, without having the qualifications. That is a self-cheating process.

Now here it is said, yatroparamate cittaṁ, niruddhaṁyoga-sevayā. By yoga-sevayā, means by the practice of yoga one should find that he has no more disturbing mind for material hankerings. It is just like this, that a man, hungry man, is given foodstuff to eat. And if he eats properly and if the foodstuff is just to his taste. He will feel three things simultaneously. And what are those three things?

He will feel satisfaction, his hunger subsided, and he will feel strength, completely. He will feel satisfaction, good tasting food will give him satisfaction that I am eating something substantial. At the same time he will feel that my hunger is being gradually subsided. And the third thing, he will feel bodily strength. And out of this feeling . . . (break) (end)
