Krishna is to a spiritual seeker what God is to a normal human being. Lord
Sri Krishna is the culmination of all things spiritual. Lord Krishna
is the end of the spiritual journey itself.
Krishna an avatar of the era (Almighty God manifest
in human form) came about 3600 years before. The
coming of Sri Krishna was laden with a great responsibility.
He upheld Dharma at a stage of time when the society
was at its lowest ebb.
was prevalent all over. King Duryodhana had announced
an exile of 14 years for the Pandava kings. It was
practically a banishment of the Pandavas from the
kingdom with the hope that the whole kingdom could
be usurped by King Duryodhana himself.
The Pandavas were
the rightful owners of the throne and Justice was denied to them. It was only
Sri Krishna who could have set the system in order. The sooner Pandavas returned
from the exile... Lord Sri Krishna exhorted the Pandavas to fight back King Duryodhana.
No further exile... no further banishment!
Arjuna who was the head of the Pandava camp refused to fight. Any amount of urgings
by his companions and the countrymen lay waste. He refused to fight the enemy
which consisted of his cousin brothers, relatives and friends. According to him
it would be an enormous bloodshed without a purpose.
was this time when Lord Krishna imparted to King Arjuna the doctrine of Bhagavad
Gita. Lord Krishna simply stated to King Arjuna that the fight was between Dharma
and Adharma. It was a fight for justice. As King Arjuna represented his countrymen...
he could not behave like a coward at this stage.
Krishna exhorted Arjuna to fight for a cause... the cause of justice and Dharma.
Lord Krishna emphasized on Arjuna that it was not Arjuna fighting the war (Mahabharata).
He was merely an instrument in the hands of God. He had to fight the war (Mahabharata)
and ultimately win it. Dharma had to be won at all costs.
Krishna enthused that nothing belonged to anybody existing on Mother Earth. Everything
belonged to God. Every living being (Jiva) was merely a body for the soul (the
man within). In fighting the cousins, relatives and friends it was not to be a
fight between bodies. It was to be a fight between Dharma and Adharma.
Lord Krishna again
exhorted Arjuna with the fact that in present life whomsoever he may be related
to... in the past
life he may have been related to somebody else and also in the future
manifestations he would be related to different people. Then where does the question
arise of not fighting the war of Dharma (Mahabharata) against those who have manifested
the present bodies.
It was Arjuna and only King Arjuna during the times of Lord Krishna who could
have understood the sermon of Bhagavad Gita. It was only King Arjuna who could
have deciphered the sermon of Bhagavad Gita in its entirety. For this matter came
Arjuna had an edge over the other Pandava kings.
Krishna knew that only one who was dutifully bound to his countrymen... was absolutely
truthful by nature could be made to logically understand the sermon of Bhagavad
Gita. He was right for in the end King Arjuna agreed to fight the enemy from within.
Bhagavad Gita encompasses
the complete wisdom of the cosmos that is requisite of a serious seeker of spirituality.
The knower of Bhagavad Gita becomes omniscient... there is nothing more to learn
other than contained in Bhagavad Gita.
The sermon of Bhagavad Gita by Krisna contains within it all ingredients for one
to gain enlightenment within one's life. If one were to realize God in this life...
one had to ceremoniously follow the dictates of Bhagavad Gita. There was no other
In no other
religion, dogma or creed shall one find such precise clear path of reaching God
within one's lifetime. Bhagavad Gita the doctrine dictated by Lord Sri Krisna
the core of all that we call religion and spirituality. It is an end
in itself. Understanding the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita by Sri
Krisna one reaches the end of cosmic journey... liberating the self (our atman
within) for ever from the cycle
of birth and death.
Gita by Sri Krishna is a one-man university. One need not go to a school or read
or follow any other sacred literature existing on mother earth... yet, following
the dictates contained in Bhagavad Gita by Krisna... one reaches the end part
of the earthly abode. One gains enlightenment and finally Salvation Moksha in
religion teaches the path of reaching God. The Almighty God can only be reached
by digesting the wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine by Sri Krsna.
The sermon by Lord Krisna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra made King Arjuna see
the truth. He realized that it was not to be a blood shedding without a cause...
it was at fight against Adharma.
must prevail in the end and no sooner King Arjuna was able to digest the teachings
of Bhagavad Gita by Sri Krsna... he prepared himself and the other Pandava kings
for a most justified fight that ever occurred in the history of mankind.
are the basic ingredients of the sermon by Lord Krisna? Is it at all necessary
for one to indulge in spiritual pursuits early in life? Can one continue living
a life of joy and harmony without ever having to pursue a spiritual goal of life?
of it is possible yet, the end of journey as a human being culminates in one gaining
enlightenment in the end and finally Salvation. Why not start now! Even as a human
being there are about 11 million types of manifestations that a human being is
entitled to. It is a long journey indeed before even as a human being one can
gain enlightenment and finally Salvation Moksha in Hinduism.
onus is unto us... we may start the journey now or many manifestations henceforth!
The cosmic goal of every human being shall ever remain the same... gaining enlightenment
and finally Salvation for the soul within (liberation for ever from cycle of birth
Krisna taught humanity the basics of life. In Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna explains
in detail how it is our soul the atman within which is on a cosmic journey. And
for any soul the atman within to purify itself... it needs a body to work out
Initially manifesting the body of an amoeba (the first manifestation) in the series
of 8.4 million manifestations that can occur in the lifetime of a soul the atman
within... it is only after manifesting a total of 7.3 million lives that the body
of a human being can be manifested by soul the atman within. Never before!
Human being... the highest
manifest stage in the life of a soul the atman within is the noblest form of life.
It is only as a Human Being that one can gain enlightenment and finally Salvation
(moksha). Never from the kingdom of heaven can one gain stage of enlightenment
directly. It can never be!
has been clearly spelt out in hinduism that having spent time in the kingdom of
heaven... every Deva (Godly being) again comes back to the confines of the mother
earth... Only then the soul atman can emancipate forever.
Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine put forward by Lord Krishna teaches one the basic
values of life. Bhagavad Gita surmises that the kingdom of God does not differentiate
between a laborer and a King. In the kingdom of God all are equal.
human being has equal right to approach and be with God. One maybe at any stage
of life... the path towards God always remains open for all. Unlike religions
which differentiate between various classes of human beings... spirituality as
put forward by Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita is available to the downtrodden and
the masters alike.
is only Bhagavad Gita and the Bhagavad Gita alone which in totality explains the
path towards God in 700 neatly laid shlokas (aphorisms). As the pearls of wisdom
in Bhagavad Gita get bared before us... nothing heavenly could deviate us from
the noble path of spirituality!
Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna single-handedly bares before us the Spiritual path
in its entirety. The follower of Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna need not further
follow any religion or creed. The need to go to a temple, church or mosque also
does not arise.
path to spirituality is straightforward and clear. No dogmas to deviate us from
the fixed path!
evolving living being (Jiva) shall one day gain enlightenment and finally Salvation
(moksha). Bhagavad Gita is the only doctrine existing on mother earth which guides
one on the path towards Almighty God.
It is one document which has been made available to mankind by God Almighty...
wherever and whenever one desires to proceed on the path of spirituality!
Lord Krishna has been considered
as an Avataar (God Almighty manifest in human form). He had Godly powers right
from his childhood. He laid bare the essentials of spirituality that required
one on the path towards God.
choose or not to choose... to proceed or not to proceed on the path of spirituality
in present life is the absolute right and prerogative of every human being. The
Bhagavad Gita does not impose upon one any restrictions whatsoever. Every human
being can start on the journey towards God guided by Bhagvad Geeta as and when
Bhagavad Gita is not a doctrine of compulsions... it simply bares before us the
essential truth of us... the truth that it is our soul the atman within that has
taken the body and not vice versa. Whatever ego any human being may carry... the
fruit of karma by every human being always rests with our soul the atman within.
As one evolves from
one manifestation to another higher level of manifestation... it is through the
process of chromosomes that the residual karma of past lives is transferred to
the present life. Whether we shall be born in the family of a King or a laborer
is purely determined by the balance of karma brought forward.
the cosmic hierarchy... anything going wrong at any stage is absolutely ruled
out. If Stephen Hawking in his book "a brief history of Time" has spelt out that
the system of God is disordered at some stage... it is simply because the scientists
are blind to the basic fundamentals of spirituality. It is only treading the path
of spirituality with a firm faith in existence of god can one gain enlightenment
and finally Salvation (moksh).
Science demands proof... in the system of God it is absolute faith which finally
governs. Similar as we can feel the presence of a flower by its smell but cannot
see it... every seeker of spirituality can feel the presence of God every time
and everywhere. Yet, scientists world-wide have always questioned the factor of
absolute faith in the system of God.
have miserably failed in the field of spirituality. They shall always continue
to fail for they desire to analyze the system of God by the limited power of senses.
Faith commands us to view beyond the limitations of senses and accept the absolute
truth as such. Spirituality is like the hidden part of the block of ice floating
in water. Hardly 10% is visible and the rest is all speculation.
demands the highest level of faith in the system of God. It has to be firm and
absolute. It was only Einstein who in the later stages of life realized that he
should not have analyzed God from the angle of science. He admitted his mistake
but it was too late by then. His desire to proceed on the path of pure Spirituality
always remained a dream.
It was God Almighty who incarnated as Lord Krishna then and In present times the
humanity awaits with abated breath the coming of Bhagwan Kalki... the Avatar of
the modern era.
