Jaspers and the Gita (or "Transzendieren" and jñāna mārga)

Roads to Rome

Spiritually I am a lost case. At least, that is what I thought. I tried all kinds of prayers and meditations, Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, in the lotus position, lying, kneeing, contemplating, thinking, not thinking, breathing through the mouth, the nose, eyes closed or open and starring, and so forth. 638 more words

Unhappiness

“All unhappiness,” says the Bhagavad Gita, “is a result of false expectations.”

I might add that it can also be a result of habit. I would never have understood this when younger, but once habituated to unhappiness, the habitué might well, given a choice between happiness and unhappiness, willfully choose unhappiness simply because that has become their comfort zone.   44 more words
