Cursory Thoughts On Shamati, “What Is Other Gods In The Work”


We are under the authority of “other gods.” “Gods” are the forces of nature that I worship. I worship various things: forces, fulfillments, phenomena, and situations, which make me—my ego—feel good. This is called “other gods.”

My attitude is wrong only relative to the property of bestowal that is opposite to me. I do not derive pleasure from it and do not understand how one can bestow—and enjoy it.

It means that we are under the control of other gods and engage in idolatry, meaning worship idols: all sorts of egoistic fulfillments. We have to change our system of values and to appreciate the property of bestowal that is opposite to us.
From the 6th lesson at the Toronto Convention 9/18/11
