SUPERSTITIONS are caused by Duality and Dualism

Never forget what Krishna says in SBG 5:03



Please read the post below before watching the video!

In this video, I explain how duality and dualism are the root causes of superstitions. The false belief that there is something separate from the all-pervading Atman that resides in every being leads to irrational fears and superstitions. This leads to the mushrooming of pseudo-religious cults, organisations, ‘babas’, ‘ammas’, and all such factors that will not only ensure a life full of fear, anguish, weakness, and subservience but can guarantee a fearful death, whenever it should happen.

Can’t people, who claim to be educated, read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita on their own in a language of their choice? It takes hardly four hours to read it once. Why isn’t it a regular practice in regular ‘Dharmic’ families to teach children the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, at least the ten principal Upanishads, Tripura Rahasya, and other such crucial Vedantic scriptures? Why do people of the Sanatana Dharma who are fortunate to be born in families that did not convert to any organised religion not be helped to acquire the Supreme knowledge of the Self, which can be so easily imparted by leading them towards Vedanta?

In this video, I delve into the concept of Vedanta, the highest form of Vedic studies, which provides the ultimate rational explanation for existence and non-existence. It would be advisable for anyone to first work on finding out who he or she is before attempting to know the world.

The two core lessons that can be learned from the Srimad Bhagavad Gita are Nishkama Karma or selfless work, and Atmagnyaana or the knowledge of the SELF. By recognising the divine nature in every being and treating everyone equally, we can follow the path to ultimate bliss, peace, and fulfillment in life.

SBG 13:27 (28 in some editions)
समं सर्वेषु भूतेषु तिष्ठन्तं परमेश्वरम् |
विनश्यत्स्वविनश्यन्तं यः पश्यति स पश्यति || १३ २७ ||
samam sarveshu bhooteshu
tisht-hantam parameshvaram
yah pashyati sa pashyati
(SBG 13:27)
The person who truly sees is the one who sees the Supreme Soul or Supreme Bhagavan, existing equally in all beings – the unperishing within the perishing.



Life is a gift - Let's live it!
