There is certainly nothing more purifying than knowledge. He who is perfect in Yoga finds it in the Self in due course of time.
Ignorance, ‘maya’ or illusion, and delusion, are some of the main factors behind most of the sufferings that people undergo. These factors prevent people from perceiving reality in a rational manner. That is how and why people fall victim to bizarre religions and cults, godmen and god women, take strange and painful wows, and do almost everything possible that in no way agrees with common sense.
At the core of such ignorance lies ‘Duality’. In simple words, it is the belief ingrained in people since their childhood that there is a separate entity called ‘god’ and that pleasing such an entity would change their lives for the better by showering upon them, wealth, property, worldly goodies, progeny, or even a life partner.
Such a belief leaves a gaping hole in the psyche of an ignorant person, through which, ‘soul-traders’ enter and take over their souls forever.
Our ancestors have left behind tremendous treasures in the form of Vedic scriptures of which, the highest stage is the Upanishads; and the supreme gift of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. However, people somehow neither find the inclination nor the time to read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, which could, in fact, turn their whole life around. Their innate nature to find ‘quick solutions’ leads them to charlatans, frauds, and other fake religious people, and people end up being dejected, frustrated, angry, or chronically depressed.
Knowing this problem of people, in the year 2014, I created a website to help people read the complete Srimad Bhagavad Gita with ease. I use large fonts on my site that makes reading easier, and less strenuous or boring to read. I then came out with a Run-Through of the SBG, Audiobooks, E-books, paperbacks, and Udemy courses. My latest publication is called, ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita,’ which is available on Amazon for a price that is next to nothing.
But even after all my endeavours to explain to people that Vedic astrology is only a tool used to acquire a general idea about the patterns in a person’s life and that Mantras are amazing tools in one’s efforts to master their own mind, I see that even now, a lot of visitors who come to this site, read the same astrology related pages, again and again, every day, expecting ‘planets to shower them with blessings of special favours!’
This page is another attempt of mine to gently lead people towards Vedanta away from all irrational beliefs and practices.
This page would be useful to anyone, even to those who are in a mental state of dejection, paranoia, fear, pain, and all other debilitating emotions.
When you face serious issues, don’t you go to speak to some elderly person or with someone who cares for you? Why do you do that? It is because speaking with them makes you FEEL BETTER, and not that they could solve your problems straight away. What does it mean? It means that talking to someone, helps you look at your challenge pragmatically, rather than emotionally, and this helps you think more intelligently, which can cause new ideas in your mind to help you get out of your predicament.
Even after one read of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, your ‘default state of mind’ turns absolutely pragmatical and rational, and the knowledge you acquire, guides you, protects you and, shows you the way to a healthy, wonderful, peaceful, prosperous, content, enriching, fulfilling, and blessed life ahead. If reading the SBG merely once could do this, just think what studying the Srimad Bhagavad Gita well could do.
