What does Bhagavat Gita say?
And why do we oppose it?

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 4, Verse 13

The four categories of occupations were created by me according to people’s qualities and activities. Although I am the creator of this system, know me to be the non-doer and eternal.
//The Gita says 4 varnas are based on gunas and karmas.
And does neither states it is by birth nor deny it.
//This is the point they(The Gita followers) putforth when we talk about varna.

Lift yourself by yourself

Powerful Statement from Krishna

At times when you feel depressed and low, remember, "Only You Can Lift or elevate from that stage"
Krishna Clearly states it is left to you to identify yourself as your best friend as much as your worst enemy.

Now How to elevate yourself ?

By knowing the nature of the self which is unborn, eternal, which is state of infinite bliss and
the self in you is the same which exists in all and the self in all is the same which exists in you.

By doing good,

Eg: suppose if one wants to elevate himself from poverty, best solution is to help other people who are struggling more than you in poverty.

Karma Yoga Simplified


Remember the self within you is the same in all, so by doing good.. you are helping yourself.
While doing good, just act as an service to GOD/Atman (or whatever name you like to give it). Leave the results to nature to manifest it will duly do justice to you.

It is an easiest path in purifying d mind from agitations,In other words it removes the dirt prevailing in d mind
Results of practicing Karma Yoga for a prolonged period is experience of infinite inner bliss, joy and happiness which cannot be purchased by any amount of money.

Note : Inner Joy is Real Happiness...

Hari OM!!!

Gandhi ji on #BhagavadGita

The Gita is the universal mother. She turns away nobody. Her door is wide open to anyone who knocks. A true votary of Gita does not know what disappointment is. He ever dwells in perennial joy and peace that passeth understanding.
But that peace and joy come not to skeptic or to him who is proud of his intellect or learning. It is reserved only for the humble in spirit who brings to her worship a fullness of faith and an undivided singleness of mind.
There never was a man who worshipped her in that spirit and went disappointed. I find a solace in the Bhagavad-Gita that I miss even in the Sermon on the Mount. When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad-Gita.

Lifestyle - Middle Path - Message from the Gita

Lets take Sleeping as Example:

Sleeping is a important main component when it comes to consumption of 24 hours of the day..
Nowadays many people ignore/reduce the number of hours sleep due to many reasons like office pressure,workloads etc without realizing that it is a predominant activity of our well being.
Another side is the class of people like sleeping to the extreme that is even after they wake up they again go to sleep. This also have adverse effect on the body and also the mind.

What do I have to do now??? Here is the message from the Gita

Simple, Remember at all times you are atman not the body, you are that without which this body is mere matter.
The self in you is the same which exists in all. The Nature of that self is infinite Bliss & bliss alone. (Spare atleast few minutes daily to contemplate on this knowledge).

So Think Good, Speak Good, Do Good, Never Hurt anyone by thoughts, words, worst is hurting physically.
Do Good by Shunning attachment to fruit of actions, else you will have fear & anger. (Every action has definitely a result, allow it to flow to you at ease)

Have moderation in Food & Sleep, which is middle path. ( Anything in Extra is always a problem)

Secret to Peace of Mind at all times!

Only Two Factors which disturb the Limitless Peace Prevalent within each one of us. They are Fear and Anger.

Now Let's Handle Both of them individually.
1) Fear
When Does 'Fear' manifest within us? Who does it even come to us even without our knowledge or permission within us? Keep this Questions in mind for better understanding.
Let's say you have an intimate 'object' which you love it, in ur possession with full control at ur disposal,You want this 'object' to stay as it is with you forever. This Feel is called Attachment.But unfortunately there is an threat of losing it& u start to worry about it

Secret Of Action

Why Krishna advised us, "To Do your Duty without the desire for fruits of such actions.."

It's Popular Misunderstanding
The real intent of this advise from Krishna has strong underlying factor on focus of action.

Every action has an end result, that's the law of the nature. Given this reality, the quality outcome of an action will depend on the quality of work skills/effort behind such action.
So the quality of effort behind every activity will determine the fruits of such activity.

It's in this context, Krishna advised Arjuna don't focus on the fruits of an action while performing/undertaking the action...

Develop this Attitude for Everlasting Experience of Peace/Bliss...

Mind in Quietude is a Sign of Happiness due to Detachments
Mind in Agitation is a Sign of Weakness/Sin due to Attachments
Thats why Krishna advises to treat Victory/Defeat, Pain/Pleasure, Gain/Loss as one and the same...

(Meaning One Success Jumping in the Air, & One Failure completely dejected/depressed, Krishna says Maintain Balance ie middle path)

Dont get swayed away by Likes & Dislikes.. Rise above them..

Swami Chinmayananda Beautifully explains this topic (Gita Chp 3 v33)
It is universal law that everyone has their own likes & dislikes... It is natural you can't avoid it..

Every one of us come into the world and first we divide the world into two.. things that I like and things I hate..

#gita #Krishna
All your life autobiography is running away from what you don't like and run towards, what you like.. is it not?

Our Inner Nature of the Atman/Self is Infinite Happiness... It is for this reason we seek happiness in everything we pursue.. the end result of any activity we undertake with one intent which is to experience happiness..
Unfortunately we ignore this reality of the self and seek happiness in the external world of objects(objects can be thing/person/emotion) which only gives us finite/momentary happiness...

#PearlsFromGita Series
#Hare #Krishna #HariOm #BhagavadGita
By seeking happiness in the outer world of objects without your knowledge you're making the "self/atman" who is your King of all happiness "poorer.." Awake, Arise witness the real & unreal..

Hari Om!

Deep Subtle Message is there are only Two types of people in this world, those who have gone & those who have not yet gone.
Everyone's time in this world is limited, wise people dont waste their time in grieving for the living or the dead... Because they are aware about the availability of time in their life is also limited... #Gita
Once a person is aware of this truth, such person however egotistic becomes slowly humble.. inevitable truth..

To sum up there is only one thing which is certain after birth, which is death... so why worry?

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
