Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.5
Bhagvad Gita Summary chapter VIII shloka 5 Lord Krishna extols the virtues of
an abiding Faith in the system of God ... this Faith when it reaches its climax
makes one see the absolute truth in its entirety ... it is then when one realizes
the true Essence of self ... comes face-to-face with the Almighty God the Creator
of the cosmos.
to god as many times as possible ... yet maybe one remains farthest
from him ... why? It is not only the prayers that count but it is also the intensity
of prayers, which count. Quality is more important than the quantity.
Normally we remember God only when we encounter a difficulty ... in the times
of harmony we forget to remember God. A true bhakta remembers God all the time
... for him praying to God in full sincerity and intensity ... asking for none
is the true Essence of his prayers. One prays to God totally oblivious of the
surrounding circumstances ... not caring even for the basic necessities of Life.
It is not very
difficult to recognize a true bhakta from the common masses. Ramakrishna
Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana ... both were true followers of God.
None cared for anything else then the direct vision of God ... rather they dwelt
in the sweet memories of God all the time.

Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.6
Bhagvad Gita Summary chapter VIII shloka 6 Lord Krishna emphasizes on the point
that it is our thought process that governs our destiny of Life. People say one
is lucky ... God says, "None is lucky". It is merely the fruits of Karma, which
everyone gets in this Life. Even if the fruits pertain to earlier lives ... then
also we have no control over it whatsoever.
Jiva is imbibed with characteristics owing which one performs Karma in the present
Life. If our Karma is to make a King out of us ... then, we shall become one unless
our Karma in the present Life does not go against it. The resultant Karma at any
stage of Life is governing and binding upon us. None can go against it. It is
beyond the prowess of a Human Being to counter the effects of the resultant Karma.
