Enjoying Happiness & Misery is Yoga
Lord Krishna enjoyed the praise of Dharmaraja and His enjoyment is indicated by the smile on His face. Immediately, Shishupala scolded Him continuously. Lord Krishna kept the same smiling face indicating that He enjoys the misery also equally. Therefore, the equality of enjoyment in both happiness and misery is Yoga. Yoga does not mean the equality of forced neutrality in both happiness and misery. If neutrality is Yoga, the Lord could have kept neutral with silent peaceful face indicating His detachment from both happiness and misery. Therefore, the Yoga preached in the Gita as the equality is the equality in enjoyment in both and not the equality in neutrality in both. The Gita is generated by the Lord Krishna. The real interpretation of the Gita can be found out from the practical life of Lord Krishna. Without verifying the theory of the Gita in the practical life of the Lord, scholars are fighting with their theoretical interpretations of the Gita.
If you can enjoy equally happiness and misery, you can attribute yourself to be God, which is the Advaita as preached by Shankara. You need not worry about the power of creation, rule and destruction of the creation in intervals by God in this context because it becomes irrelevant. The reason is that the ultimate aim of creation, control and destruction in the interval is only the process of enjoyment of the creation. The Veda says that God created this universe because He was bored. Hence, the ultimate goal of God is only to enjoy the creation and not to exhibit His power of creation, control and destruction of the universe.
A person harvested sugarcane and mirch. He crushed the sugarcane and prepared the juice. Similarly, he crushed the mirch and created the hot dish called chutney. There are two cups of sweet juice and two plates of hot chutney. One cup and one plate are enjoyed by that person. He is drinking the sweet juice and tasting the hot chutney now and then in the intervals. He is enjoying both continuously. Any single dish bores if enjoyed continuously. That person offered another cup of juice and another plate of chutney to you. If you can enjoy the sweet cup and the hot plate similar to that person, you are totally equal to that person. The labor put by that person in harvesting sugarcane and mirch and the labor put by that person in preparing juice and chutney are irrelevant in this context. All the labor is aiming only at the final enjoyment of the juice and chutney. Since the ultimate aim is equal in both the persons, both are equal. Similarly, the labor put by God in creating, controlling and destroying this creation now and then, is ultimately aimed at the final continuous enjoyment of the creation only. If you enjoy the creation continuously like God, you have totally become God and the power of creation etc., goes into the labor only, which is irrelevant. The Gita says that we should enjoy even the death, which is the climax of the misery and this is found in the practical life of the Lord. He was with smiling face even though the blood was flowing continuously when His foot was hit by the arrow.
Human Being takes Hidden Negative Side
You must realize the positive side of everything to enjoy it. Everything has positive and negative side. The greediness has both positive and negative sides. Due to greediness if you eat less, your health is maintained. This is the positive side. The negative side of the same greediness is not giving food to a deserving person. Similarly, charity has both positive and negative sides. The positive side of charity is to donate to a deserving person. The negative side of the charity is not to donate to a deserving person. God created everything with the positive side only. You are taking the hidden negative side of everything and blaming God for creating negative items in this world.
Ego is the most dangerous disease, which can spoil even the human incarnation. Both Parashurama and Rama were human incarnations. You can treat the human incarnation as God and this is Advaita (Monism). In fact, God lives in the human being and therefore, the reality is Dwaita (Dualism) only. As long as human incarnation realizes the Dwaita, God maintains Advaita. Rama always told that He is an ordinary human being and thus, maintained Dwaita throughout His life. Hence, Rama was always treated as God and Advaita was maintained by God throughout His life. When Parashurama thought that he has killed all the devils, God separated from him and he was insulted in the hands of Rama, which is the exhibition of Dwaita by God. Therefore, ego can spoil even the human incarnation and hence, one should be very careful about the ego till the last minute of his life.
