ಜಹಿ ಶತ್ರುಂ ಮಹಾಬಾಹೋ ಕಾಮರೂಪಂ ದುರಾಸದಮ್ ॥೪೩॥
evaṃ buddheḥ paraṃ buddhvā saṃstabhyātmānamātmanā|
jahi śatruṃ mahābāho kāmarūpaṃ durāsadam ||43||
Gist of the sloka:
O Mahavira, by realizing the right knowledge [which is difficult for commoner], realizing the true reality of the Lord, thinking rightly and without vacillating, drive away the evil which commoner cannot overcome.
By realizing the true knowledge which is not easily understood by the senses-mindintellect, control the mind which is like a runaway horse. Give the control to the Lord and benefitting from the protection given by the demi-Gods, win over the daemon Kalanemi slowly and surely. Finally reaching the abode of Lord Krishna in mukthi.
If we remember the above whenever there is a wrong desire which arises in us, we can prevent the entry of the daemon Kalanemi inside us.
Not all desires are wrong. For example, having a desire to know the right knowledge and thereby meet the Lord is not bad. In fact, it’s a desire everyone should have. We should therefore surrender our mind to the Lord, remove wrong desires with help of Lord and demi-Gods, then realize mukthi.
The fight against Kalanemi is not immediate, for we need to win the battle slowly, step by step with the help of the good forces like Lord and demi-Gods. All along the way, they help us to overcome these evil forces.
