CLASS LECTURE ON VEDANTA II | IWGR III | RAMA राम

|| < : INTEGRAL METHOD OF STUDY : > ||

Reading or studying is of different kinds .

Some people study only through the tongue , like parrots ; some study through the hands , as shipwrights or artists .

Rama does not mean to say that all artists are not scientists ; but we have seen artists who are not scientists .

There are people who can swim across a bay , but who know nothing of Hydrostatics . There are people who can navigate the air but know nothing of Aeronautics , the science of the air .

The manufacturers of medicinal articles often know nothing of Chemistry .

Now those people who study with their hands are welcome .

There are some people who study only with the heart . They are the blessed people of the world .

Those who can feel , those who can realize a thing at one glance , those who are clairvoyant , see everything ; they are welcome too .

But if they study through their hearts alone , their training is of no benefit .

They must have intense desire , and at the same time be well cultured , in order that their knowledge , their true education may be imparted to others .

They are one-sided if they follow only the heart .

The people who are of the greatest use in this world are those who act through three edges : who have the head , the heart , the hand and tongue , well trained .

These are the highly educated , the really cultivated .

Similarly , Rama wishes you to study and learn the Vedanta , through all the avenues :

  1. HEART
  2. HEAD
  3. HAND+TONGUE
  4. SOUL
  5. EVERYTHING .
  1. Let it tingle through your blood ,
  2. course thru your veins & arteries ,
  3. permeate & penetrate your heart ;
  4. let your brain be steeped with it ,
  5. let all your being be soaked in it ;

Then you will raise yourself , you will be free from every point of view .

Then you will realize your Supreme GODhead , your true nature ; then you will be perfectly free from every standpoint .
