verse 21

The release comes quickly when the desire for this is intense.

It is logical that the release comes quickly when this desire is stronger. We think that we should not have any desire and therefore make ourselves the following question: How can we desire Liberation? This is out of place. As Swami Sivananda He said: "We can not wish what we are". You are Brahman, so you may not want to be Brahman. We do not want what we already have. Talk about the desire of liberation really means to find it. We are free because we are Brahman. The greater our inspiration and confidence have, faster we will reach our goal or more rapidly zoom space jar.

verse 22

The desire for liberation can be mild, moderate or severe.

verse 23

(Success comes quickly to those who are) devotees of Ishwara, (God).

Who is Ishwara? Ishwara is the Supreme soul but with attributes. "Ishwara pranidhana" means autorendicion to God, the Supreme soul. Ishwara is the God that we can worship with attributes such as love, kindness, mercy and omniscience. This form of manifestation helps concentrate the human mind. A manifested form is that can communicate.

There is only a God, Brahman o Purusha, and the different deities are only ways of God. Such as Brahma, the creator, Vishnu, the preserver and Shiva the destroyer. All these are manifestations and we can imagine them outside us, in the same way that having them in our interior.
