The ten heads of Ravana may be symbolised as false ego or arrogance, anger, greed, lust, attachment, hatred, fear, envy, apathy, and bitterness.
However, all of them stem from one prime enemy that not only rules but also negatively impacts the lives of most people. It is IGNORANCE.
SBG 4:37 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 4:38 There is certainly nothing more purifying than knowledge. He who is perfect in Yoga finds it in the Self in due course of time.
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.
SBG 13:28 Such a person perceives the same Supreme Bhagavan dwelling equally everywhere and he does not degrade his own spiritual well-being by mistaking his ego to be the Self like the way ignorant people do. He, therefore, reaches the highest goal.
The most beneficial and ultimate journey is the one into oneself shattering the ten main ‘heads’ which are the different layers of IGNORANCE that block a person’s both worldly as also spiritual growth.
In Shlokas 6:105:1-31 of the Yuddha Kaanda of the Mahabharata, it is said that Shri Rama, after hearing what sage Agastya said to Him, sipped water three times and recited The Aditya Hridayam Mantra before successfully destroying Ravana.
It symbolises the fact that the ten factors are almost invincible and that they can be destroyed through knowledge, devotion, Dharma and total surrender to Supreme Divinity.
May you stay abundantly blessed.
Jai Shri Krishna

O Mother – the most auspicious one and the one who bestows auspiciousness upon everything and fulfils all purposes of devotees. You are pure and holy. You, the ‘three-eyed’ Gauri (the one who sees the past, the present, and the future), protect everyone who takes refuge in you, Salutations to you, O Mother Narayani.
The proposed date of release of the video containing the entire Srimad Bhagavad Gita in Sanskrit: Vijaya Dashami day 15.10.2021
The Srimad Bhagavad Gita can be called the panacea for all sorts of issues in life simply because it is a treatise that can systematically guide a seeker to attain mastery over his or her own mind, which is where everything that exists, exists.
Do not waste your time looking for solutions outside of you. Follow the teachings of the JagadGuru (Supreme Teacher of the Universe) Shri Krishna, learn to activate your own Divine Energy through a balanced mind, and work on creating a blissful and fulfilling life for yourself, for your loved ones, and for everyone around you.
(Pls use headphones)
The SRIMAD BHAGAVAD GITA – MADE EASY – A RUN-THROUGH in English
We could say that about 98% of the so-called ‘Hindus’ of India are either not motivated or are simply lazy to read the SBG thanks to the sheer size of the book. And even if they have read it, they do not try to understand the metaphor in the teachings, but take off on a tangent by taking things in a literal sense, and go farther and farther from Vedanta.
Well, the fact is that the large sizes of the different copies of the SBG are mainly due to the lengthy interpretations by spiritual masters, which are not required in the beginning stages of one’s spiritual journey.
Apart from the Audiobooks, videos, ebooks and paperbacks that I have created, this Run-through video of the SBG, is aimed at making it easy for anyone who understands English to learn at least the fundamentals of Vedanta.
All you would need to do in the beginning of your spiritual journey into your Self, would be to first get the gist of the non-dualistic philosophy of Vedanta, knowing which, will set any seeker mentally, intellectually, and spiritually free.
I might have suggested this video earlier, but I don’t mind doing it again. If you wish to alter your entire thought process and your whole future ahead of you to make it fulfilling and meaningful instead of being stuck in an unintelligent ego-based corner in your mind, just put everything aside and watch this 1-hour 50-minute video at a stretch. Use headphones.
If you wish, you may get back to me by mail once you’ve done it and discuss it further.
Number of visitors of this site have thanked me for this post and written to me that they go to the post quite often as it immediately calms them down.
I wrote it to push people away from their victim mentality when things do not go well in their lives.
Who does one pray to? To oneself, of course but not to the individual as a person or to their ego, but to their Self, which is nothing but the All-pervading Supreme Self that manifests in different forms as various points of expression
Krishna is not some separate spirit like being sitting elsewhere but He is the personification of the All-pervading Supreme Self. Humans basically need a form in order to visualise and connect. SBG 12:01-05
Wasting money in Pujas instead of using the money for the benefit of others is a selfish act. By the way, in the SBG, Krishna never asked anyone to go to temples, perform Pujas, donate Him money, or worship bearded mleccha babas who slaughter innocent animals and live on their carrion.
In SBG 9:26 Krishna, as the JagadGuru, says that He accepts anything that is offered to Him with devotion and a pure heart. It could be a leaf, a flower, a fruit, or a little water.
Self-respecting people should never allow others or anything else to control their mind. The moment you get upset because someone said something to you, treated you badly, or insulted you, what you are doing is letting them control the state of your mind, which means you are their mental slave. Would you really want that?
The HAPPINESS SWITCH – A REFRESHER
Reading the Srimad Bhagavad Gita once or twice is one thing but reading it again and again is another. This is because every time a seeker reads it, he or she learns something new in it or something new occurs to them every time they read it depending upon their state of mind while they read it. Negative qualities such as confusion, fear, anger, hate, jealousy, or dissatisfaction usually stem from one’s superstitions, faulty ‘God concept’, and their poor understanding of Life, Karma, and Death. In fact, reading the Srimad Bhagavad Gita often and studying individual chapters in detail should be an essential part in raising children and in their education which will help them grow up into fine adults.
If you wish to gain a rational understanding of the things that happen in your life, of your Karma, and destiny; improve your skills in crisis management and leadership, develop self-confidence, and work with social responsibility as a guiding factor; make studying the Srimad Bhagavad Gita an essential part of your life.
English translations of the 42 Shlokas with a quick summary at the end.
THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON YOU NEED TO FIRST IMPRESS IS THE ONE YOU SEE IN THE MIRROR EVERY DAY – YOU.
THAT WOULD BE THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS ACHIEVING SELF-CONFIDENCE AND BECOMING A WINNER.
When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say.
For it isn’t your Father, or Mother, or Wife,
Whose judgement upon you must pass.
The feller whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.
He’s the feller to please, never mind all the rest,
For he’s with you clear up to the end,
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may be like Jack Horner and “chisel” a plum,
And think you’re a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum
If you can’t look him straight in the eye.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you’ve cheated the guy in the glass.
Written by Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr.
Should winning be your main goal, it would not matter
– how wealthy you are
– how well qualified you are
– how physically strong you are
– how good-looking you are, or
– what gender you are
But what would truly matter are
– how powerful you are from within
– how strong your will is
– how much you believe in yourself
– how sure you are of yourself
and above all,
– how badly you want to achieve your goal.

Why Do You Create Negative Karma?
Why Do You Create Negative Karma?
This is one of the sweetest videos I have watched on YouTube recently.
Being a person who does some marriage counselling once in a while, I would really be interested in talking to these two beautiful people with such unbelievably pristine hearts and souls to find out how they can be so pure in their hearts.
Could it be due to their respective chromosomal and complex developmental conditions, or is it that ‘normal’ people too, with no such conditions, be able to emulate them and live a love-filled and blissful life with not even traces of anger, jealousy, ego, hatred, or even violence?
I can watch this video again and again. The two are truly a fairy tale couple. May they stay blessed and share with others the true secret of their love for each other, as well as that of staying so deeply in love.
WEALTH MEDITATION – Mahalakshmi Ashtotha Shathanaamaavali
Money is not everything in life, but it certainly is extremely important for a comfortable life.
This short Wealth Mantra Meditation can help a seeker attract wealth towards him or her. However, before you commence the meditation, which you would need to do with absolute focus and concentration, please promise to yourself to be generous and helpful to others.
For a better effect and good results, please use headphones and, if possible, switch off the lights in your room before you begin to watch the video.

The Aditya Hridayam Mantra 600,000 + views
About three years ago, one of the thousands of wonderful people who visit this site contacted me, and during our conversation, we talked about the Aditya Hridayam Mantra. Being a person who had already taken my suggestion, learned the Mantra by heart, chanted it every morning, and immensely benefited due to the Mantra, she suggested that I create a video of me reciting it in my style in place of chanting or singing it the usual way because she felt that the power that the Mantra is loaded with could be then truly experienced by a listener in a manner that would be even more effective.
Considering her suggestion, I made this video and uploaded it on my YouTube channel. In April 2021, the video crossed half a million views and today the number of views has exceeded 600,000.
I feel greatly blessed that this ordinary video of mine has helped, inspired, motivated, and empowered so many people.
May you all stay abundantly blessed and may your lives shine with Divine Brightness and Light.

Worshipping babas and dargas:
It may be understandable that spiritually ignorant people of other foreign cults with the god, devil, heaven, hell and a judgement day concept fall for ridiculous stories, but why should these ‘hindoos’ go for all this? Most ‘hindoo’ people have no idea about their own Sanatana Dharma and that is why they get fooled and brainwashed so easily by enemies of the Dharma. The first thing they need to stop immediately is talking nonsense such as ‘all religions preach the same’ stuff.
It is truly unfortunate that although it hardly takes 3 to 4 hours to read a translated version of the Gita and understand at least some basics of Advaita Vedanta, a lot of the so-called ‘hindoo’ people would prefer watching some ridiculous feature film for three hours, worship ghosts and graves of babas, or sit for hours before a baba who converts one Shloka from the SBG into a chewing gum, but not spend that time on something that can change their whole life for the better!
Whatever differences there may be among Sanatanis, none of them would ever disrespect or reject Krishna. The power of Bhagavan Krishna is one single and strong unifying force that all Sanatana Dharmis could use to come together. The SBG is the same for everyone, whichever part of India or the world they may come from.
Anybody among the ‘hindoos’ who creates a sect or a subsect is an enemy of the Sanatana Dharma because they are contributing towards breaking the unity among Sanatana Dharmis.
A lot of people are simply lazy to read the entire SBG because
a. They think it would take a long time to read
b. They find the SBG boring to read, with all those lengthy and highly philosophical interpretations by babas and gurus.
In order to make it easier for people to at least have a basic idea on the teachings of Krishna, I have published paperbacks with simple and easy to follow translations, audiobooks, a video course, and a number of videos.
Please click on the link given below and visit the page to find useful SBG resources. You may benefit from them, thereby bringing bliss in the lives of yourself and of your loved ones.
Bhagavan Krishna has said:
यजन्ते सात्त्विका देवान्यक्षरक्षांसि राजसाः |
प्रेतान्भूतगणांश्चान्ये यजन्ते तामसा जनाः || १७ ४ ||
yajante saattvikaa devaan yaksharakshaamsi raajasaah
pretaan bhootaganaamsh-chaanye yajante taamasaa janaah (SBG 17:04)
The Sattvic or pure men worship the gods; the Rajasic or the passionate worship the Yakshas and the Rakshasas; the others who are Tamasic or deluded, worship the ghosts and the hosts of nature-spirits.
SBG 13:27 समं सर्वेषु भूतेषु तिष्ठन्तं परमेश्वरम् |
विनश्यत्स्वविनश्यन्तं यः पश्यति स पश्यति || १३ २७ ||
samam sarveshu bhooteshu tisht hantam parameshvaram
vinashyatsva vinashyantam yah pashyati sa pashyati(SBG 13:27)
The person who truly sees is the one who sees the Supreme Bhagavan, existing equally in all beings, the unperishing within the perishing.
SBG 18:20 सर्वभूतेषु येनैकं भावमव्ययमीक्षते |
अविभक्तं विभक्तेषु तज्ज्ञानं विद्धि सात्त्विकम् || १८ २० ||
sarva bhooteshu yenaikam bhaava mavyaya meekshate
avibhaktam vibhakteshu tajjnaanam viddhi saattvikam (SBG 18:20)
That by which one sees the one indestructible Reality in all beings, undivided among the divided – you should know that knowledge to be Sattvic or pure.
At least now brainwashed people should realise the truth, dump all Adharmic thoughts and go to Bhagavan Krishna for a total SHARANAAGATI!!
Shloka 18:66 सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज |
अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः || १८ ६६ ||
sarva dharmaan parityajya maamekam sharanam vraja
aham tvaam sarvapaapebhyo moksha yishyaami maa shuchaha (SBG 18:66)
Abandoning all your ideas of righteousness, take complete refuge in Me. I will liberate you from all sins. Do not despair.
REMEMBER – NO ONE CAN ERASE, MITIGATE OR SHARE YOUR PAST KARMA.
The way to do it would be through BALANCING KARMA, for which a seeker would require KNOWLEDGE, and this KNOWLEDGE can be acquired by studying the SRIMAD BHAGAVAD GITA.

All Challenges are Great Learning Opportunities
Unhappiness, dissatisfaction, anger, jealousy, hatred and other such destructive feelings arise from the inability TO COME TO TERMS WITH A SITUATION OR SITUATIONS – at least TEMPORARILY.
This post is being because I’m confident that whoever goes through it, no matter how stressful their situation might be, would feel better, calmer, and more composed.
One should always be careful not to fall into the bottomless black hole of the feeling of victimhood.
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY and TAKE CONTROL.
Be a RESPONSIBLE SOUL.
Another miracle of Krishna
On the one hand, there are people who long for great opportunities, and on the other, there are also people, who, due to trivial matters, stick their heads in the sand and miss great prospects that knock on their door saying that they are feeling bitter and angry over life, and are therefore undergoing depression.
It is very easy to lose great chances in the blink of an eye, which means that it would be unwise to not stay aware and alert.
Life is happening NOW.
A person’s greatest enemy is usually his or her own untamed and uncontrolled mind. Take a look at SBG 6:05-06.
Those who say they are looking for solutions are, in fact, merely, subconsciously looking for people who agree with them and empathise with them. They want people to tell them, “Oh poor you, I can understand how much you have been suffering, and I pray that ‘God opens His eyes’ and that your ‘time changes for the better.’
This attitude is a perfect recipe for an entire life of misery. It comes from a person’s innate resistance to change. A solution could mean a change in their daily life, from which their subconscious mind tells them to stay away!
I have seen in my current stint on the planet so many people who are still languishing in the same condition they were in over three decades ago! They have experienced neither economical improvements nor spiritual growth. And whom do they blame? Of course, their ‘bad horoscope’, black magic by those who do not like them, and not to forget, God, who, they say, is ‘testing’ their faith!
Those of you who are sincerely looking for a major change in life might want to take the trouble of going to the TVM Gita site, locating the Shlokas given below, and reading them.
SBG 2:37, SBG 11:33, and of course the first two Shlokas above SBG 6:05-03.
बन्धुरात्मात्मनस्तस्य येनात्मैवात्मना जितः |
अनात्मनस्तु शत्रुत्वे वर्तेतात्मैव शत्रुवत् || ६ ६ ||
varte-taat-maiva shatruvat (SBG 6:06)
The mind is the greatest friend for the one who has conquered it. But for the one who has not done so, the mind is the greatest enemy.

THE ‘VEGGIE-VEGAN’ RUBBISH SPREAD BY A CERTAIN EUROPEAN MAN IN OCHRE ROBES.
(Wearing flowing ochre robes seems to be a prime requirement to be recognised as a spiritual teacher by people)
What the hell is ‘veggie-vegan? Is it vegetarian vegan? You are either vegan or not vegan. You can’t consume animals products and have the audacity to say you are vegan.
‘Veggie-vegan’ – sounds almost like a ‘law-abiding robber’ or a ‘peaceful terrorist.’
“It is a shame that they straightaway accept whatever a person from the West utters, even if it is plain rubbish. The way some people from the West sell their ideas about Krishna and Vedic spirituality to us Indian Sanatanis is like an African trying to teach an Eskimo what ice is or a snake teaching a bird how to fly.”
THE LACK OF CLARITY IN THINKING IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS BEHIND MOST OF THE PROBLEMS OF PEOPLE LEADING TO THEIR INCORRECT CHOICES AS WELL AS SUFFERINGS.
Anyone wishing to study Vedanta could start with the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and then move on to other scriptures.
The ‘Veggie vegan’ twaddle
“You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.” Nightbirde
Unfortunately, there certainly are many people, who, instead of celebrating every moment of the greatest wonder called life, tend to fall into a dark hole of complaining, brooding, being depressed, and feeling negative.
However, there are also people like ‘Nightbirde’ Jane Marczewski who face even the most serious of challenges with courage, style, and aplomb.

On the 11th of June 2019, I lost one of my oldest and closest friends. It was during the start of my teenage years that he and I became friends. He had a great influence on my life. The adventurous years we had together can make anyone turn green with envy. The striking commonality between him and me has been that both of us have always RESPECTED, VALUED, CHERISHED and CELEBRATED every single moment of our respective lives. He was certainly not an old man when he passed away, but the sad truth is that death is the only certainty about life. Whenever one’s time arrives, he or she has to drop everything and leave.
This wonderful song by Doris Day who also sang ‘Que sera’ is a quick reminder for people who somehow end up taking things for granted as if they were going to live forever are too choosy about things in life, long for what they do not have instead of appreciating and being thankful for what they have; and waste time whining, cribbing, complaining and crying for what they do not possess.
Hating, worrying, being envious of others, having a fat ego, cheating others, being untruthful, being thankless, being greedy, being unkind, and so on; waste time and suck out the real beauty from life.
Life is a short, sweet, beautiful and priceless gift – Live it to the fullest.
Enjoy this beautiful song of life.
Change your circle and change your life. There will certainly be people who never let you change or grow, and therefore it would be necessary for you to be mindful of whose energy you receive, through your daily interaction with others, the films you watch, the kind of TV soaps you watch, and so on.
Try to hang around with happy and successful people. Their qualities can be highly contagious, which, in turn, can turn out to be good for you.

You, the mighty Agni, gather up all that is precious for your friend.
Bring us all treasures as you are enkindled in libation’s place
Assemble, speak together: let your minds be all of one accord,
As ancient Gods unanimous sit down to their appointed share.
The place is common, common the assembly, common the mind, so be their thought united.
A common purpose do I lay before you, and worship with your offerings.
One and the same be your resolve, and be your minds of one accord.
United be the thoughts of all that all may find happily concur.
The great Osho in one of his talks said, “It is good to make mistakes or rather, one new mistake every day, because mistakes teach you something or the other. But it would be sheer stupidity to repeat the same mistake over and over and over again.”
The great Sage of Kanchi said to his followers, “Pray and ask for more troubles.”(!) What? Yes, that is what he said to his followers. What he meant was ask for more challenges, face them, handle them, and be done with your past Karma as quickly as possible! So that one can focus on leading a life that can get them to the Supreme Goal instead of using their mental and physical energy in things like basic survival, handling back-stabbers, quarrelling with one’s spouse and so on. Challenges in your lives have been caused by your own past Karma and nothing or no one else. Settle past Karma as quickly and smoothly as possible.
However, we all know that we certainly are not saints and that all of us make mistakes, but after we have apologised or asked for someone to pardon us for the mistake(s) committed by us, we definitely feel lighter and better.
Arjuna did that too. Here is a brief ‘Prayer of Apology’ through which you could request Bhagavan Krishna to forgive you for the mistakes you might have committed both knowingly and also unknowingly.
Shloka SBG 11:44, which is the last Shloka in this brief prayer session, is sure to bring tears in the eyes of a true devotee of Krishna.
Jai Shri Krishna.
Have you read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita?Have you watched my SBG Run-Through video?Have you heard one, two or all my three SBG audiobooks?Have you read my SBG E-Books or paperbacks?
Yes? That means it’s time to join “Responsible Soul”
मूर्खस्य पञ्च चिन्हानि गर्वो दुर्वचनं तथा।
क्रोधश्च दृढवादश्च परवाक्येष्वनादरः॥
(Moorkhasya pancha chinhaani garvo durvachanam tathaa.
Krodhas-cha drud-havaadas-cha para-vaakyeshv-anaadarah)
मूर्खों के पाँच लक्षण हैं – गर्व, अपशब्द, क्रोध, हठ और दूसरों की बातों का अनादर॥
The five characteristics of fools are pride, slander, anger, stubbornness and disrespect for what others say.
Whereas a ‘Responsible Soul’ who is a committed KarmaYogi devoted to Bhagavan Shri Krishna, has none of the above qualities.
Life is short. Let us all spread love, peace and knowledge.
When did it all start? When did creation take place? Has there been one beginning or are there cycles? Coming to think of it, was there a beginning at all? And if yes, how could someone have known it when they did not even exist at the time the universe was presumed to have been created from nothing?
Luckily for us, unlike the way it is in organised religions, we are not merely ‘allowed’ to ask questions but in fact, we are encouraged to do so simply because knowledge is Brahman.
The two Shlokas given below say that creation and dissolution take place in cycles.
SBG 9:07 All beings, O Arjuna, enter into My Nature at the end of a cosmic cycle or Kalpa and I send them forth again at the beginning of the next Kalpa.
SBG 9:08 The entire cosmic system is under Me and I send a multitude of beings again and again which have no freedom because they are under the control of the forces of Nature.
Now, here is the famous Nasadiya Sukta which is a set of seven Shlokas of the 129th Hymn from the 10th Mandala of the Rig Veda.
Please visit the page, read the post and watch the video.
Nasadiya Sukta – The Hymn of Creation
Whatever people perceive is solely based on the data acquired through the five senses which is processed as well as interpreted by the mind.
Even after receiving the greatest Blessing in the form of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita with the highest level of philosophy of ‘Atma Gnyaana’ taught in it, there are still many people who waste their time and mental energy looking for quick solutions at the feet of babas and ammas, or performing penances for different deities, taking highly challenging vows, and a lot of other such things, which none of the great teachers have ever asked people to do.
Take Shri Ramana or the Sage of Kanchi for example, Most of their followers do exactly what the divine teachers did not ask them to do!
In Shloka SBG 12:05 Krishna explains the need that people have for the personification of the Supreme Brahman, but then the problem is that people stop there and do not go any further. That leads them to be revolving in vicious Karmic cycles drowned in utter ignorance and mental slavery.
Hope this video with some selected Shlokas helps clear doubts in your minds.

The Pink Elephant and the Power of FOCUS
When you go to bed, tell yourself that you would start the following day with a new thought that would be good for others starting with the people who are around you – your parents, spouse, children and others.
It takes 72 muscles to frown — only 14 to smile! Many people hardly realise the power of a SMILE which is created by using merely 14 facial muscles.
Whatever be the thought that you wake up with, just remember one thing – SMILE at the persons you see in the morning and wish them a good morning in the language of your choice. If there are elders in your home, demonstrate your respect for them as per your family traditions.
If you have one or more pets, look at them with love, SMILE and show them that you care for them. Those voiceless but marvellous creations of nature will surely see and feel your love and will emit tonnes of Divine energy onto you.
SPREAD LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP. Everything else is worthless.
THANK YOU DEAR VISITORS FROM 168 COUNTRIES
May you stay blessed.
The only person who can settle YOUR KARMA – and that person is YOU.
Teachers can only show you the way, motivate you to study Vedanta or set an example for you to do so.
Removing the feeling of victimhood and taking full responsibility offer instantaneous peace of mind, whatever be the reason for a person’s stress.
If you consider yourself a seeker, please feel free to read, study, ask, discuss, question or even debate.
Is Karmic Retribution True?
There is NO REMEDY FOR KARMA. SETTLING PAST KARMA IS THE ONLY WAY.
However, there is a possibility to simply WIPE ALL PAST KARMA. Read SBG 18:66 and find out – but to understand the Shloka and learn to apply it in life, reading the Srimad Bhagavad Gita at least three to four times and understanding Krishna and Karma Yoga are necessary.
If someone offers you a ‘remedy’ for your Shani Dasha or any challenging phase that you might be undergoing in life, remember that they are making money out of you. No guru, no baba, no amma, no one can settle your Karma for you, not even your own mother who bore you and delivered you. There are of course very good spiritual teachers who might be able to show you how to go about things but they surely CANNOT settle your Karma.
“Karma is simply the principle of cause and effect and not of reward or punishment as taught in organised religions.”

The long arm of Karma
A Scene from the film ‘Bulundi’.
PRINCIPLES – VALUES – MORALS – RESOLUTION – SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY – COURAGE – ZERO FEAR
Srimad Bhagavad Gita 2:37
हतो वा प्राप्स्यसि स्वर्गं जित्वा वा भोक्ष्यसे महीम् |

“Either you will be killed in the battle and you will attain the celestial abodes or, you will win this battle and enjoy the kingdom on earth. Therefore arise and fight with resolution.”
Constructive Dreaming instead of Worrying and Over-Thinking
Shlokas SBG 15:07, 08, 09
The Transmigration of the Atman and the Transporting of Karma between Janmas.

In this path, O descendant of the Kurus (Arjuna) there is A SINGLE POINT OF FOCUS and DETERMINATION. The thoughts of the undecided are branched and are infinite.
A.G.E. – A Gita Experience
Peace – it is the one state of mind that the subconscious mind of a person, however noble, rapacious, evil or violent their intentions might be, is constantly striving to attain.
Bizarre as it may sound but that is what even an evil person who hurts others wants after committing each and every gruesome act!
After a tiring chase, carnivorous animals too, that hunt other animals, tend to settle down in a calm spot to savour their prey in peace. CLICK BELOW TO READ THE TRANSCRIPT
My Peace and I
All of your thoughts, words and deeds get registered in your mind that you carry along with you from one Janma to another. That is how patterns exist in everyone’s life that invariably are vicious cycles that will not end until and unless a course correction is done by you.
SBG 15:08 When the soul which is the master, acquires a body, it takes the mind and the five senses from the body it has left just as the wind takes different odours along with it.
Albert Einstein once said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Many people complain that things are not going well in their life but the most important fact they fail to realise is that that is how things will be, forever, unless they did something about it.
The easiest way would be to be a Karmayogi by being thankful for what you have, respecting what you have – starting from your own body, and performing work with no expectations or attachment to the results.
When you perform actions giving up all attachment to the fruits of those actions, you become a Karmayogi. Krishna says, that the one who performs his or her work as a sacrifice unto Him, is free from the bondage of Karma.
My principal personal role model of a true Karmayogi is none other than our beloved Prime Minister Shri Modiji.
