Meeting With Unknowable – In Gita Verse 4.11 As all surrender unto Me, I reward them accordingly. Everyone follows My path in all respects, O son of Pṛthā.
Krishna says this words in absolute compassion. When you uses the word surrender means that when we turn in, be with ourselves, we dissolve into him. For him surrender is not an agreement with his thinking he he says that when you we turn in, be with ourselves, he resonance with same frequency where we are. He hold us from where we are. He don’t say that unless you reach to me I will not be available. He says that you go in, turn in, be with yourself, I will be there. I will be there not as I am but as you. I and you are not separate but one only.
Let’s understand this through our own experience. When we play with the child we become child, we resonate with child, we are not separate from the child but one with child. In the process child grows.
Krishna tells Arjuna be yourself, be playful, and you will be me. I am always waiting. Wherever you are I am there as you are. This is compassion. In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 4.7, I wrote regarding Buddha and Angulimal, Buddha never says to Angulimal, that come and do meditation. He tell him to take his head, and spoke his language, his represented himself as Angulimal wanted him to be. He never shown his superiority to him.
In Krishna’s his own life he presented himself to Putana as child, to Kansha as enemy, to Arjuna as friend, philosopher and guide, to Radha as lover, to Rukmani as husband, without any resistance.
In our life look when we are with our children we talk with them as their parents and not as spouse or their children, when we are with spouse we relate to them as spouse, so we also represent ourselves as other wants to relate with them.
The difference between us and Krishna is only one that is he is total when he is with anyone and we are not.
Here Krishna tells Arjuna to turn in, I will be there, as you are and you will be silent in that silent you and I will be vibrating in the same frequency, called AUM. In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 4.3, I have wrote that whole universe is created from AUM.
With Aum, Patanjali says, you will feel the first taste of dropping into the universal, turning in. That taste will become your happiness and instability will go. That’s why he says in chanting Aum and witnessing it all, obstacles drop.
“Anguish, despair, tremors and irregular breathing are the symptoms of a distracted mind.”
These are the symptoms. Anguish: always anxiety-ridden, always split, always an anxious mind, always sad, in despair; subtle tremors in the body energy, because when the body energy is not running in a circle you have subtle tremors, a trembling, fear and irregular breathing. Then your breathing cannot be rhythmic. It cannot be a song; it cannot be a harmony.
These are the symptoms of a distracted mind, and against these are the symptoms of a mind who is centered. The chanting of Aum will make you centered. Your breathing will become rhythmic. Your tremors in the body will disappear; you will not be nervous. Sadness will be replaced by a happy feeling, a joy, a subtle blissfulness on your face, for no reason at all. You are simply happy: just being here you are happy; just breathing you are happy. You don’t demand much, and instead of anguish there will be bliss. As if you have met your beloved. You will be blissful only when your have experience of meeting unknown, unknowable, which has no words but silences.
These symptoms of a distracted mind can be removed by meditating on one principle. That one principle is pranava-Aum, the universal sound.
For Krishna meeting with him means meeting unknown, unknowable and still that experience which has no words but we cannot refuse also. We are surrender to that unknowable.
