This Sunday Morning Satsanga is in Gujarati. In this Satsanga, Pujya Swamiji provides greater insight on the value ‘Amānitvam’. The subtle difference between Ātmagarva (ego) and Ātmagaurav (self-dignity/self-respect) are discussed here, and the importance of Ātmagaurav (self-dignity/self-respect) in the life of a seeker for self-confidence and associated interactions with the world is pointed out. The maturity of the value ‘Amānitvam’ and how it is reflected in the life of a wise person ‘Jñānī’, further gives us an insight that ‘Ātmagaurav is at the level of ‘Ahankār. In the subsequent part, there is discussion on what is required for gaining spontaneity in one’s own nature ‘Ātmā, and clarity regarding the cause of the extrovertedness of the mind. That one must understand ‘Viṣaya’ as not just limited to the sense objects and sense pleasures, rather the very ‘rāga and dveśa’, the likes and dislikes are the cause of desires, karma and the subsequent chain of extrovertedness. What triggers the likes and dislikes? It encompasses everything from objects, people, situation, location, events, etc. The attitude that something is useful or not, described as ‘Samīcin buddhi’ manifests into ‘rāga and dveśa’, and these rāga and dveśa’ are the very cause of extrovertedness of mind.
