— Divine Bliss described in The Bible
Lord Krishna has explained thoroughly this Divine joy in the
Bhagwat Gita thus:
When the soul is no
longer attached to external contacts (objects) one finds the
happiness that is in the Self. Such a one who is
self-controlled in Yoga on God (Brahma) enjoys undying
bliss” (B.G. 5:21).
“The yogi of subdued
mind, ever keeping himself thus harmonized, attains to
peace, the supreme nirvana, which abides in Me”. (B.G.
““That in which he
finds this supreme delight, perceived by the intelligence
and beyond the reach of the senses, wherein established, he
no longer falls away from the truth” (B.G. 6:21)
happiness comes to the yogin whose mind is peaceful, whose
passions are at rest, who is stainless and has become one
with God” (B.G. 6:27).
“Thus making the
self ever harmonized the yogin, who has put away sin,
experiences easily the infinite bliss of contact with the
Eternal” (B.G. 6:28).
