This is well-written. Without? Doesn't really make sense if defined as in the article below.

It would be interesting to compare MMY's version of these chapters if he had translated them. I've heard that this was already done. But the TMO has decided not to release them to the general audience. The message that I got from these readings is to be "without the gunas", which MMY covered in Chapter Two of his translation of the Gita. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Interesting breakdown by the Gita of character type.

I'm saying that the second group belongs to the passionate people which includes who have firm beliefs of their opinons. So, when they get together, they create confusion and rancor. Trump is obviously a person who attracts divisiveness which we have witnessed since he took office. Nonetheless, the Gita consider these prople to be conditioned by the gunas or material modes of nature. Even the sattwic people are considered conditioned as well. But the Gita considers the passionate group to be lustful, greedy and full of hate. The thrid group of people are considered lazy, who sleep and intoxicated or high on drugs. They also worship ghosts and dead people. From: "jr_esq@...

There are those who are good and satvic who promote peace and higher consciousness in society. It is apparent that Trump is attracting and inciting those elements in society that lead to violence, anger and hatred. As such, the American society is being tested as well to follow a leader who promotes peace,, bliss and unity for the entire country and for the rest of humanity. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <emily.mae50@...> wrote : The cosmic battle has been going on in one place or another, on one plane or another, for thousands of years. The election of T.Rump in this country is a wake-up call, in my opinion. He has stirred the pot like no other could and we are all having to evaluate where we stand and what we stand for and how we stand in our relations towards others and the planet at large. In this way, he is doing good. However, how long he is needed to do this is up for review. He is extremely unwell and seems to be heading towards a complete mental breakdown and meltdown. I'm guessing he is going to take as many people as he can down with him. I hope and pray he doesn't go completely off the rails and get us into a war, or worse. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : Emily, The news we're witnessing right now is similar to the vedic story of a terrifying monster that was conjured up by brahmins in a yagya or vedic ritual gone awry. It would require Indra, the king of the Gods, to get involved to slay this monster. IOW, the higher powers of Nature may have to get involved to dump Trump. Do you want to see the cosmic battle to start in the USA? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <emily.mae50@...> wrote : Sure they can.
