Soundarya Lahari - Part 266


What he intended must therefore be to warn us well ahead so that we can steer clear of such desires and aspirations. Just as all rivers fall and get absorbed into the sea, so also all desires should get absorbed in oneself, never to rise up again -  says the Gita. 

That is the kind of shAnti, Peace, that our Acharya would have advocated. It is the captivation by oneself of all desires and the absorption of all of them into oneself that the Acharya must have meant by the power of ‘vashyaM’, meaning, ‘captivation into submission’.
