Ishavasyam – 2

The problem of a perfect life on earth and life free from all ills can only be achieved if we go back to the fundamental nature of existence. There are two words mentioned in the first verse of the Isha Upanishad: Isha and Jagat.

“The World is the habitation of the Lord”. Understanding this truth and knowledge with our mind, and realising it by our whole nature and being is the way to escape from evil, limitation and death.

Nature is a fleeting and inconstant motion preserved by the harmonious fixity of her laws. This subjection to the inconstancy of Nature is the reason for our bondage, death, limitation and suffering. We who are entangled in the modalities of Nature must realise that if we escape from the illusion of Nature we will reach the unqualified Spirit or God.

By rising to the God within us, we become free and stand liberated from the bondage of the world and death. For God is Freedom and God is immortality.
