  1. Understanding Krishna as The Divine Father and Mother

मत्तः परतरं नान्यत्किंचिदस्ति धनंजय |

मयि सर्वमिदं प्रोतं सूत्रे मणिगणा इव || ७ ७ ||

mattah parataram naan-yat-kinchidasti dhananjaya

mayi sarvamidam protam sootre maNi-gaNaa iva (SBG 7:07)

Beyond Me, there is nothing superior, O Dhananjaya. Everything is connected to Me like pearls on a thread. (SBG 7:07)



You only live twice

You, as an individual, have only one life, but then, your life until this very moment is gone, and therefore, your life from now on could be called your second life. What if you had a teacher or guide that would show you the way into a future that is bright, enriching, and fulfilling, thereby saving you enormous amounts of time?

Such a guide is the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, which is a life-changing book that can help you have clarity in the way you think, work, and live. Anyone who knows how to come to terms with challenging situations and manage them in a deft manner is always peaceful and never under stress. When you worry, you not only create unwanted negative images in your mind which could carry the propensity of becoming reality, but by doing so, you would only be wasting time that could have been spent in a better way creating your future. You can either live every moment of your life or waste it, turning it into a stepping stone for you to get closer to the end of your sojourn on the planet. Every moment, when consciously lived and experienced, can be as rich and fulfilling as one’s entire lifetime.

Everyone goes through situations that they do not like or those that could be causing them sadness. The wise know to step outside themselves, observe the situation they are in, think calmly, and come out with a good solution. 

The two basic drives: There are two objectives that people have. The first one is the natural instinct to survive, and the second one is to derive pleasure. The three levels before attaining the final goal of realising Brahman are:

  • Body
  • Mind
  • Atman and beyond.

In the first level of the physical body, people strive to satisfy it through consuming food, working on their appearance, and attaining physical comfort. Once a person has achieved the first level, they prefer something that would be good for their mind and ego. All worldly achievements that are associated with wealth, power, position, and reputation or image come under this category. Love for art can also be grouped under this level.

Those who are satisfied with the worldly comforts they have received, then start looking for something that would satisfy their soul. This includes spiritual studies, meditation, being close to nature and also higher levels of art such as music. People who have cleared the first three steps are finally ready for Self-realisation or experiencing Brahman.

In the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Krishna the JagadGuru or teacher of the world has cogently and lucidly explained in a rational manner the most important truths of life and death. A person with such clarity can bravely and intelligently face and handle even the toughest of challenges. However, most people find getting to read this scripture to be the main problem. 

We are all aware that some major Gita organisations distribute big fat copies of the SBG to people. However, the big question is of what use it is? People hardly cross two pages, shut the book and put it away for a later time, probably until they enter their late sixties, or until the day they meet someone like me who talks them into reading it.

The challenge: People are generally not motivated or are probably lazy to read the SBG. It could be for three main reasons:

a. They are already convinced that the SBG is too deep and cannot be learned by oneself without the help of a teacher.

b. The thought that philosophy and spirituality are for ‘old people,’ and that it does not go together with the material world of family and career.

c. The scripture, which is highly metaphorical, can sometimes go over the head of a reader who is not mentally prepared for such knowledge.

The solution: Instead of organising high-level spiritual Satsangs, or distributing fat books among people who are beginners in the subject, the best solution would be a short e-book that is tightly packed with the core information of the SBG in it, and that people could carry on their phones. This book/e-book, with well-defined sections and subheadings, is easy to read and complete within a short duration of time. It would enable the easy internalising of the ESSENCE of the philosophy of the SBG taught in it. People who have reached this preparatory stage would naturally be inclined and driven to go further and deeper into the study of Vedanta.

a. My SBG Run-through video is available for free on YouTube.

b. Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita Paperback and e-book editions of a short book containing brief summaries of the 18 Chapters sprinkled with the author’s thoughts and interpretations.

“Wouldn’t people be willing to invest INR 100/USD 2.99 for an E-book or INR 250/USD 8 for a paperback version on something that can change the lives of themselves and of their loved ones?” I ask myself.

The reason for fixing a  price for this book is simply because most people tend to not pay heed to things that come for free and therefore end up not benefiting from such resources. Nevertheless, I might consider looking for sponsors for printing in India copies of the ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita’ to be distributed for free among students, young people, corporate employees, management staff, and others.

It is my fervent desire that just as I have done, others also attain spiritual and; mental freedom, feel liberated and learn to live a blessed life with great health, peace, love, freedom, prosperity, and fulfilment. 

Every journey begins with the first step. Your first step in your journey towards Vedanta to acquire Vedantic spiritual knowledge would be getting yourself a copy of: ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita.’

It costs a mere INR 100 or USD 2.99 for the e-book or INR 250 or USD 8 for the paperback version. It is a price worth paying to change your life for the better, isn’t it?

Karmic ‘Potholes’

Temptations are Karmic ‘potholes’ which are detrimental to one’s Karmic evolution.

There are temptations that can influence the minds of even very highly intelligent and educated people. Such people when tempted, are led to do things that they would normally never do. It is usually because of a moment of weakness, either due to desire, or due to the illusion of doing some good to someone (which is the result of one’s ego), that a person falters and commits a blunder that becomes and also stays a big blot on their personality during their lifetime. Such an action actually stems from a person’s ignorance or mental weakness due to the distortion of reality in their mind. The reality is that everything is Maya or illusion. The world exists only until the mind exists and is conscious. People who are unconscious or asleep, despite being alive, are oblivious to everything around them and also about themselves. When the mind is not awake, nothing exists. The body, which many people mistake to be their self, is an impermanent vehicle that the Atman uses in order to travel through a Janma and the mind is nothing but an abstract tool that one can use in order to think and carry out actions which, unfortunately, have Karmic reactions.

A Janma or lifetime of a person is basically the time between the first and the last breaths they take during one sojourn of theirs as a particular person on the planet. Whatever people do, apart from trying to survive, is to be happy. But an extremely important truth to be noted is that anything that people think, say or do collects Karma which needs to be balanced some day or the other. Therefore, thinking clearly before performing any action is of crucial importance to one’s Karmic evolution.

But what exactly is it that leads people to do things that they would normally not do?
SBG 3:36 Arjuna said: “What prompts a man to perform sinful deeds O descendant of Vrshni (Krishna)? Why does he commit such acts even without desiring to do them, as if he were forced to do them?”
SBG 3:37 Shri Bhagavan said: It is lust, which is born out of the quality called Rajas Guna that leads to anger which in turn prompts a person to commit sin. It is all devouring and greatly sinful. You must know that this is the greatest enemy in the world.

Lust for someone, for wealth or for power stems from ego which stands on one’s ignorance about the Supreme Truth of Universal Oneness and tells them that they are a separate entity.

There are basically three kinds of bliss or pleasure that a person can experience:
1. Physical
2. Mental
3. Spiritual

Physical and mental pleasures might, initially, seem attractive but lamentably, they don’t last long.

It is only spiritual bliss, which is founded on divine knowledge, that lasts forever. People come under the influence of temptations and commit deeds that they believe will make them happy. However, they realise a bit late that such things don’t last long but the damage they cause in one’s life and in one’s Karmic journey, only because they yielded to such temptations, can last a whole lifetime and longer.

Why do people fall for temptations?
त्रिविधं नरकस्येदं द्वारं नाशनमात्मनः |
कामः क्रोधस्तथा लोभस्तस्मादेतत्त्रयं त्यजेत् || १६ २१ ||
trividham narakasyedam
dvaaram naashana-maat-manaha
kaamaha krodhas-tathaa lobhas-
tasmaa detat trayam tyajet
(SBG 16:21)
There are three gates to destroying oneself – they are lust, anger, and greed. These three should therefore be given up.
एतैर्विमुक्तः कौन्तेय तमोद्वारैस्त्रिभिर्नरः |
आचरत्यात्मनः श्रेयस्ततो याति परां गतिम् || १६ २२ ||
etair-vimuktaha kaunteya
aachara-tyaat-manaha shreyas-
tato yaati paraam gatim
(SBG 16:22)
A person who is liberated from these three gates of hell lives a life that is favourable for his soul and he goes to the Supreme goal!
यः शास्त्रविधिमुत्सृज्य वर्तते कामकारतः |
न स सिद्धिमवाप्नोति न सुखं न परां गतिम् || १६ २३ ||
yah shaastra-vidhi-mutsrujya
vartate kaama kaarataha
na sa siddhi-mavaapnoti
na sukham na paraam gatim
(SBG 16:23)
A person who disregards the teachings of the scriptures and acts under the influence of desire, attains neither perfection, happiness nor the Supreme goal.
तस्माच्छास्त्रं प्रमाणं ते कार्याकार्यव्यवस्थितौ |
ज्ञात्वा शास्त्रविधानोक्तं कर्म कर्तुमिहार्हसि || १६ २४ ||
tasmaach-chaastram pramaanam te
karma kartumi-haarhasi
(SBG 16:24)
Therefore, let the scriptures be the authority and guide to let you know what you should do and what you should not do. Acquire knowledge from the teachings of the scriptures; and live and work according to that knowledge in this world.

Just as death is an unavoidable part of life, are separation and pain inevitable parts of possession and attachment. Why be attached to someone or to something that is impermanent? Why not be attached to the Eternal and Supreme Bhagavan Krishna who is the personification of the Supreme Truth?

The only permanent reality is Divine Consciousness. Learn to experience the Supreme Bhagavan Krishna after which, no one or nothing can ever cause you sadness, pain, fear, anxiety or anger.

May all be blessed with peace and happiness.
