THE FOURTEENTH LECTURE

NAMED,

GUṆA-TRAYA-VIBHĀGA-YOGA

OR

THE TOPIC OF THE THREE QUALITIES.

INTRODUCTION

IN the Thirteenth Lecture, it was shown that by comprehending the real nature of the mutually related verities of Prakṛiti and Purusha, and then practicing the virtues of Reverence etc., (XIII-7. ff), sanctified by the Grace of the Blessed Lord, obtained through Bhakti (XIII-10), release from bondage would result. And it was also there made mention of that the cause of bondage was traceable, to concatenated antecedents of attachments for satva and other guṇa-impregnate (material) pleasures, viz:

‘Attachment to qualities is the cause of births in good and evil wombs’. (Gi: XIII-21).

In this Lecture, it is proposed to treat of how the qualities (guṇas) come to bind, and how deliverance therefrom may be effected.
