The TWO TRUTHS of LIFE

*In order for the video to make more sense to you, please go through the following post before watching the video.

*You could choose to listen to this audio, or if you wish, you could also play the audio and simultaneously read the introduction to the video given below:

Around thirty trillion cells that are stuck together form the human body in which you reside. In fact, YOU, or rather your SELF, exist in each of these trillions of cells.

Now, how is your SELF different from the SELF that exists in others and in all other living beings? Is each SELF known by some people as ‘Jivatma’ separate from one another? After a person is dead and gone, and when neither face, body, nor DNA exist, how can you tell one ‘Jivatma’ from another?`Do they have ‘Jivatma fingerprints?’ And if ‘Jivatmas’ were truly separate from one another, then they should be made of matter in one of the three states of solid, liquid or gas. What are they made of? Are they some kind of gas? If that were to be the case, they should be made of molecules. So what kind of molecules are they made of?

The lack of general knowledge, common sense, and an overall foundation of rationality are the ones that cause people to believe without questioning whatever ‘yarns’ are spun for them by ‘religious’ people.

Have you read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita? Did Arjuna ever ‘pray to Krishna’ to help him win the war? NO! Arjuna only requested Krishna to accept him as His pupil and impart knowledge to him.

The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a perfect allegory for your life. The Mahabharata war is not something that takes place between you and others, but it is a perpetual battle between the ‘Pandavas’ and ‘Kauravas’ that represent the positive and negative thoughts in your mind. Remember that both are equally powerful, and therefore, the only way for the good guys or the Pandavas to win over the badies of the Kauravas would be THROUGH KNOWLEDGE. Every sane person has their own intellect or KRISHNA in them, but how many actually choose to be like Arjuna who questions, discusses, contemplates, reflects, and is always eager to learn, is an important question.

The last Shloka SBG 18:78 of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita sums it all up:

SBG 18:78 (Sanjaya says) Wherever there is Krishna, the Master of Yoga; and wherever there is Arjuna, the supreme archer; you will find there, prosperity, happiness, victory and righteousness. Of this fact, I am certain.

What is the moral of Shloka 18:78? A true seeker is one who is eager to learn, is socially responsible, is fearless, and is aware that he is the same All-pervading Supreme Paramatma, temporarily limited by his false belief that he is restricted to the boundaries of his skin on his body. Such a person consults his intellect before performing action, which he does as a sacrifice unto Krishna or his own Higher Self, and by doing so, he can be free from Karmic reactions and comfortably evolve towards the final goal of Ultimate Self-Realisation.

Please read the following translated SBG Shlokas and then watch the video:

SBG 2:18 The material body is perishable but not the eternal, indestructible and immeasurable Self, which has no end.

SBG 2:20 The Self is never born, nor does it die at any time. It does not come into existence by being born. The Self is constant. It is not killed when the body dies.

SBG 2:25 The Self is said to be formless, inconceivable, immutable and unchangeable. Hence, knowing this, you should not grieve.

SBG 6:29 A yogi, whose Self is united with Divine Consciousness, sees the Self abiding in all beings and all beings in the Self. Such a person sees the same everywhere.

SBG 13:02 (13.3 in some editions) You should know that the Kshetrajna or the embodied Self in all bodies or Kshetras is Me, O Arjuna. Knowing about the Kshetra and the Kshetrajnas is called knowledge.

SBG 13:22 (13.23 in some editions) Yet, within the body resides The Supreme Bhagavan who is also called the Spectator, the One who permits, the Supporter and the Transcendental Enjoyer. He is the Paramatma, the Supreme Self.

SBG 13:31 (13:32 in some editions) The imperishable Supreme Self is without any beginning and is devoid of the Gunas or material qualities, O Arjuna. Although it dwells in the body, it neither acts nor is tainted.

SBG 13:32 (13:33 in some editions) Just as the all-pervading ether is not tainted because of its subtlety, the Self that is seated everywhere in the body, does not mix with it nor is affected by it.

SBG 13:33 (13:34 in some editions) Like the sun that illuminates the whole world, the Self or the Soul, which is the Bhagavan of the Kshetram or body, illuminates the whole field, O Arjuna.

SBG 14:19 The one who recognises the Gunas alone as the agent in all actions and treats the Self to be above the Gunas, achieves My (Krishna’s) Divine Nature.

SBG 18:63 I have taught you the secret wisdom, which is deeper than all that is confidential and profound. Reflect fully on what I have declared to you, and do what you wish to do.

Pathetic people and their pathetic lives

I can understand the lives of people, whose forefathers had converted to foreign religions either due to fear, greed, or whatever reason. But what about those whose forefathers faced it all, stood tall, protected the Vedic Sanatana Dharma, and passed it on so that the present generation could benefit from the highest knowledge of Vedanta?

How pathetic can such a huge number of people be, to not put in at least minimal efforts to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, which is called the nectar of all the Upanishads, instead of becoming mental slaves of non-existent imaginary deities and of beef-eating men and women claiming to be special divine people; join cults, sects, groups and subgroups; and actually choose to suffer all through their lives! How pathetic!

Now, get this straight: If you do something, no matter how ‘religious’ or ‘pious’ you might think it is, but expect something in return, including simply ‘wanting to please ‘god”; you would only be going against the main principle of KarmaYoga:

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन |
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि || २ ४७ ||
karmaNye vaadhikaras te
maa phaleshu kadaachana
maa-karma-phala-hetur-bhuur-
maa te sango ‘stva karmaNi (SBG 2:47)
You only have the right to work, but never to claim its results. The results of your actions should never be your motive but at the same time, you should not be attached to inaction.

How miserable can people be, particularly those who consider themselves to be educated and knowledgeable, to ‘pray’ for special favours to something that does not even exist?

Please, remember that The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is an allegorical representation of one’s whole life. The Pandavas and the Kauravas are the positive and negative forces that continuously battle within one’s mind. Arjuna had Krishna as his own driver all through the war, but did he ever ask Krishna to ‘perform miracles’ and solve his problems? NO! Arjuna placed himself as a pupil of Krishna. See Shloka SBG 2:07. The moment any person, no matter m or f, positions himself or herself as an ‘Arjuna’, their ‘Krishna’ will appear and guide them through life. What I mean by ‘their ‘Krishna’ will appear’ is that their mind, which was until then shrouded in ignorance, ego, selfishness, and stupidity in the name of religion, ‘shraddha’, ‘aasthaa’ or whatever, will become open to true knowledge.

Krishna says in Shloka SBG 9:11

अवजानन्ति मां मूढा मानुषीं तनुमाश्रितम् |
परं भावमजानन्तो मम भूतमहेश्वरम् || ९ ११ ||
avajaananti maam mood-haa
maanu-sheem tanu-maashritam
param bhaava-majaananto
mama bhoota-maheshvaram (SBG 9:11)
Foolish people, due to their lack of understanding of My higher nature as the Supreme Bhagavan of everything that exists, disregard Me when I descend in the human form.

What does the above Shloka mean? It simply means that FOOLISH PEOPLE do not understand HIS Universal Nature because of silly beliefs that were injected into their heads through generations and generations of people who either had no idea of what they were saying or doing, or did such things deliberately in order to keep people in a state of intellectual and spiritual stupor.

Stop all the nonsensical rites and rituals you perform with your poor understanding of Vedanta believing they would ‘make ‘god’ happy’ and be helpful or useful to you; and study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. There cannot be anything more important for you in life than something that can set your whole life straight.

Click here to look for suitable Gita resources and swear never to be pathetic or lead a pathetic life filled with fear, greed, anger, hatred, laziness, and the lack of true Vedantic Knowledge, simply because you do not care to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and are willing to spread the disease of pseudo-spirituality to others and to future generations.

STOP ALL STUPIDITY AND TAKE TO KRISHNA’S TEACHINGS

‘Capture the Essence’ – a sneak peek

The Preface of the book – read for you by the author.

Life is a grand journey between two crucial points in time. The manner in which an individual views life, experiences it, perceives various situations and reacts to them shape it apart from building their entire personality.

The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a perfect guide to blissful living. However, the reputation of being deep, intense, complicated and highly philosophical that it carries, usually discourages seekers, both young and senior, from reading it. This book is aimed at making it easy for seekers to comprehend the essence of the amazing scripture, which is a great gift to humankind, and alter their whole perspective of life.

Those who study the scripture at a young age can be sure of a highly enriching and fulfilling life. Studying the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and internalising Krishna’s core teachings couldn’t get any simpler than this.

NOW is the best time to get your copy of the book. Capture the Essence, available on Amazon, Flipkart and White Falcon Publishing.
