Swami Paramarthanandaji is in Bangalore for a week giving a series of evening talks on Bhagavad Gita 7th Chapter. The topic of the 7th chapter is to see the world as God, and thus be free from raaga and dvesha (attachment and aversion). During the introduction to the series, Swamiji pointed out that trying to get away from the world soon and making sure not to come back again is not Moksha. That is a very negative attitude towards life. Divinisation of everyday life by seeing the world as a manifestation of God and thus to be free from all psychological defects like attachment, anger, greed, anxiety, worry, depression, jealousy, etc. is Moksha. Moksha is not running away from life here and hereafter. It is embracing life with a positive outlook. Moksha is freedom from all negative attitudes.
