Swami Nikhilanand, disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, enthralls audiences at Hanuman Temple of New York - Day 2 of 15


We now get to our second part in the 15 day satsang and lecture program of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's disciple, Swami Nikhilanand, at Hanuman temple of New York. Click here to read all posts in the series. This speech and lecture was given on July 31st 2012.

A devotee of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj who was present wrote:


There are three paths to God they are karma, gyana, and bhakti. The first path is karma which involves following the rules of Vedas and doing good actions, but doing this can only lead to Swarg not God. So this path of karma cannot fulfill our goal of God realization. Karma yoga on the other hand looks the same on the outside as karma but it leads you to God. In karma yoga you attach your mind to God and do your duties in the world. Karma sanyas also leads to God realization by leaving all karma and dharma and attaching your mind to God. Shree Krishna praises the path of karma yoga because you are doing your duties but the attachment of your mind is in God. The critism is of the path of only karma because it does not take you to God and keeps you in maya (the material world). For those who do not yet desire God the path of karma is a way to make their hearts more pious by doing good actions so one day they may aslo desire God.

Now let's watch the actual speech:
