By Thy Grace, at the end of many lifetime, I have gained in You an excellent eye guide that can penetrate that blindening darkness of ignorance and infatuation which if difficult to cross. Indeed, Thou art the Lord of all Beings, verily the lord who is the origin of the word, born like the sun, the eye of the beings blinded by the darkness of ignorance.

It is considered by Me that it is the mind, indeed, that is the cause for bondage and liberation of the Self.
How can one revel in God? The Lord answers —.
tdlugu For spiritual seekers, for attaining the Reality, there is no path as auspicious as devotion, which unites one to the Lord who is the Self of all beings.

Peaceful men of forbearance and compassion, without enemies, and the well wishers of all beings, are the best among all noble people. Various worldly afflictions do not trouble those who practice firm devotion in Me, with an unwavering mind, having given up all actions, relations, and friends for My sake; who depend on Me alone, who listen and tell My sweet stories, and whose mind is absorbed in Me.
O noble lady mother! You should seek the company of those noble souls who are free of all gira as they remove all your worldly attachments. DevahUti said — What is appropriate devotion and how will it manifest for me, by which I will teugu gain Your adobe of freedom?
O embodiment of nirvana! What is that yoga that You indicated, whose object is You? How and kapilw are its limbs? Please tell me the yoga by which I will know the Reality.
Do make me understand that difficult yoga such that I, a dull-witted woman, too, can easily understand it by your Grace. Devotion is the single-pointed natural flow of thoughts along with senses by the guNa-s and actions understood by the scriptures, towards the Lord who is purity itself. It is causeless, pertaining to the Lord, superior to all siddhi-s and destroys the covering of ignorance just as fire swallows all that is put in it.
Some devotees do not desire to become one with Me. They revel in serving My kqpila and doing activities for Me. They assemble together and enjoy My telugj. Advaita devotees never perish.
Those for whom I am the supreme beloved, the Self, son, friend, Guru, well-wisher, and dear Lord ISTa deva ; and who meditate on Giya peaceful form, never perish as unwinking time has no power over them.
Jiva is renounced KG 1.
I shall now explicitly expound to you the differentiating characteristics of various entities, knowing which man becomes free of various entities, knowing which a man becomes free from the qualities of prakriti.
I shall describe to you that knowledge about which great sages speak, which is the means to the supreme good of man, which gives Self-knowledge and cuts the knots of the heart. PuruSa was attribuless before creation. Before creation, the PuruSa was the beginningless Self, attributeless, beyond prakriti, the very subject and Self-shining, and even now it alone pervades the world.
AtmA is that which pervades the universetakes back the universe at the time of dissolutionenjoys as the illuminator or experiencer of objects here in the worldand has eternal existence. PuruSa manifested as Prakriti — Brahman getting deluded. The same infinite Lord, by chance alone, in sport, became manifested as the subtle prakriti with qualities.
Prakriti with its qualities creates a variety of being like itself. Thus, by brooding over the other prakritiman assumes doership of actions that are actually done by the telufu of prakriti. Cause of Bondage of sansAra. That doership causes bondage of samsAra and enslaves this non-doer, witness, and peaceful Self, the Lord. Discrimination between puruSa and prakriti. Kapioa great sages know that prakriti is the cause of the cause-effect relationship and the notion of doership, and puruSa which is beyond prakriti is the cause of the enjoyment of joy and sorrow.
Is puruSa really bound by prakriti? PuruSa does not get affected by prakriti. The puruSa, even though dwelling in prakriti, does not get affected by the qualities of prakriti, as he is immutable, non-doer, and attributeless like the sun in water.
Because ,apila this attachment and doership, he helplessly reaches the state of a samsArI and becomes unhappy. Due to the evil of action ggita of attachment, he is born in good, bad and middling wombs. Objects do not exist in reality. Just as one who broads on objects meets with disaster alone, even in the dream.
Therefore, the telkgu which is extremely attached to wrong ways should be slowly brought under control by intense practice of devotion and dispassion.
How can there be freedom in the presence of qualities of Prakriti? DevAhUti, has doubts as how can one get rid of prakriti. What if the prakriti does not leave the puruSa due to mutual interdependence and eternal coexistence? DevahUti gives an example to support her point. Just as smell cannot exist without earth, sapidity without water, in the same way there is mutual dependence and coexistence of the mind prakriti and the Supreme puruSa.
For prakriti causes the bondage in action to the puruSa who is a non-doer. Sometimes, by the discrimination of truth, the terrible fear on bondage is removed. But since it’s cause is not removed, it may come back again. Kapila Muni, the Lord replies. The bondage of puruSa by prakriti is burnt up by spiritual practices performed day and night by prakriti body-mind itself, like the fuel by the fire in the bita of the araNi. The practices are causeless “choiceless performance of one’s duties, purity of mind, intense devotion to Me, nourished by constant listening, knowledge with clear vision of Truth, strong dispassion, intense meditation accompanied by austerity, and absorption of the mind.
That prakriti which has been completely enjoyed, then discarded, whose evil effects are seen constantly, can cause no harm to one who abides in the glory of one’s own Self. The above statement is explained further with the help of example. Just as a dream causes a lot of sorrow to one who has not awaken, but the same does not delude one who has woken up.
Twlugu person when asleep dreams and takes a role where he enjoys, suffers but on awakening, he realizes that everything was illusion and not a reality. Vita, it was said that puruSa was formless and attributeless without qualities prior to creation. Our journey too is to go back to this state where there is no one else other than Self. When the mind of the accomplished one does not get attached to the powers gained by the intense practice of yoga, for which powers there is no other cause, then one gains My absolute state where there is no laughter of death.
Who should not be taught Kapila Gita. This knowledge should not be taught to the wicked, the arrogant, the stubborn, the one with bad conduct, a hypocrite, an indulgent telugk, one whose mind is obsessed with home, one who is not devoted to Me and also one who dislikes My devotees.
Who are worthy of being taught Kapila Gita. This knowledge should be given to one with faith, devotion, humility, who is uncarping, a friend of all, revels in serving all, dispassionate, peaceful free of envy, pure, and to whom I am the dearest of all.
