On day 3, Shri Hari Mandir Patotsav celebrations continue with pooja and worship of deities, medical camps, lectures by Sandipani scholars, cultural programmes and discourse on Gitaji.
On day 3, Swami Anubhavanand Saraswatiji based his discourse on the sixth chapter of Gitaji. As this chapter contains philosophical depth, Pujya Swamiji presented it in a simple but humorous manner.
Swamiji said that sorrows and happiness come in life due to duel. These duels of happiness and sorrow, rise and downfall, winning and losing, praise and insult will continue. However, those who can maintain a balance in these situations should be considered to have attained God by 50%. Pujya Swamiji said that praise and insults have been created by us. One who remains in bliss continuously can also remain in devotion and such a person will never harm anyone.
Swamiji enlightened all that the reason the word ‘Ānand‘ is added to the name of ascetics is because they wish to remain indiscriminative all the time.
