The audio recording of this post:
An elderly lady sent me a note of thanks after watching my two videos mentioned below and called me to let me know of her newfound blissful state of mind.
The two videos:
The person, who is 69 years old, said that as she crossed the introduction of the third Upanishad in the video, namely the Kat-hopanishad, she sensed that all her fears were leaving her and that she started feeling lighter at heart.
Then at the end of the video after going through the brief description of the BrihadaryaNyaka Upanishad and my final words in the video presentation, she realised that while she was watching the video, she was subconsciously forgiving everyone she thought had wronged her, disrespected her, or were unfair to her.
She said, “I feel like a butterfly, light and free, and I have promised myself to follow your advice: never spend time on anything that will not help me become a better person.”
The Vedic Sanatana Dharma is not even a way of life like what many people think it is. There are no rules, regulations, or commandments, but it is a great path that seekers could follow and go through its different stages of spiritual evolution. The actual journey is like going beyond a doctorate degree. That being the case, why are people of the Vedic Sanatana Dharma, who are beyond the stage of our ‘PhD doctors’ in philosophy, belittling themselves by fighting and competing with cultists or religious people that are comparable to primary school children? I mean arguing and debating with people of organised religions. And why do they want to be ‘better’ than them? Organised religions are no comparison to the Vedic Dharma, so they should never be treated at par with the Vedic Sanatana Dharma. Never.
Most people of the Sanatana Dharma, who call themselves ‘Hindus’, somehow never get to read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita even until late in life. There could be various reasons for it that I do not wish to go into. However, my personal objective is to help, enable, and make it easier for people to not only taste the nectar of the Bhagavad Gita, which is called the nectar of all the Vedas, but to enable them to change their whole life for the better by applying the philosophy of Krishna taught in this most amazing scripture, which, in non-religious terms, can be called the perfect ‘Mind Management Manual’.
The first time I taught my son this great scripture was when he was eight. At the age of 12, he gave me his understanding of the entire scripture, the depth of which, simply baffled me. His development and progress, both as a person as also academically, have been proving that his rock-solid spiritual foundation is paying off extremely well.
These works of mine, such as the book ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita’ and the two videos Part 01 and 02 introducing the Vedas and 10 principal Upanishads, have been created by me in a manner that would make imbibing Krishna’s teachings and the principles of Vedanta easy. In fact, they need to be part of the school syllabus for children.
The youth of today are vulnerable to a barrage of information that leads to confusion in their minds. The book ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita’ and the two videos on the Vedas and 10 Upanishads will certainly help them think with utmost clarity, with which, they will be able to react in the most rational, fearless, and confident way possible.
SBG 4:36 Just as a blazing fire burns wood used as fuel into ashes, O Arjuna, knowledge burns all actions and reactions due to material activities, into ashes.
SBG 4:37 There is certainly nothing more purifying than knowledge. He who is perfect in Yoga finds it in the Self in due course of time.
Jai Shri Krishna
