Following a useless leader

Link to Original Document

Many people are hero worshippers. They decide who they want to idolize and then continue to do so, until they find another idol. Most often they follow a hero ( swami, Guru, leader, actor, politician, actress, sports person , etc) and base it on achievement and popularity

This is all they can do and all they can see or think

Some may not idolize but will be aloof and take pride in that they don’t follow anyone blindly

This is a shloka from Gita

युक्ताहारविहारस्य युक्तचेष्टस्य कर्मसु |

युक्तस्वप्नावबोधस्य योगो भवति दु:खहा

Verse 17 chapter 6

The Popular opinion is balanced diet balanced karma and sleeping will destroy your difficulties

You can look at countless Gita versions and that is what they will all say

Now Sanskrit is a tricky language And the Gods love it. They can convey a deeper meaning meant for the advanced yogi and the public can wrestle with the common meaning

This verse is an extra ordinary verse talking about Maya and tells us about what is living and non living

The last two words in the Sanskrit verse says destroys all sorrow.

Now the popular opinion of the translation is balanced diet, sleep and action / how can that destroy sorrow. It can prevent illness, consequences of bad action but destroy all sorrow?

This error will continue as long as idolize the wrong person or leader etc.

Do you not know yourself as the divine? Why do you need anyone to idolize? Find a true Guru and wake up
