We may be unqualified, but we are never Disqualified (Gita Daily)

Published on Jan 23, 2014

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18, Text 66
By Chaitanya Charan Das

To be unqualified for something means to not have the necessary qualifications to do it. To be disqualified means to not be allowed to do it.

In the path of devotion, most of us are unqualified because we have little, if any, devotion. Yet we are never disqualified because bhakti is the path of grace. Krishna is supremely merciful and his mercy is the qualification of the unqualified. This magnanimous nature of Krishna is most evident in the conclusion of the Bhagavad-gita (18.66) wherein he urges everyone to surrender to him, irrespective of any past impiety that may disqualify them — he assures that he will free the surrendered from all sinful reactions.
And Krishna’s merciful offer is always open to everyone, no matter how unqualified they may be. So, no one is ever disqualified.

Of course, if we abuse Krishna’s offer to rationalize and perpetuate our wrongdoings, then we will deprive ourselves of the supreme sweetness of pure devotion, which can’t be tasted by a heart contaminated and distracted by impure attachments.
