Bhagvad Gita Summary
Chapter VIII Commentary

Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.1

Bhagvad Gita Summary chapter VIII shloka 1 primarily deals with Lord Krishna satisfactorily replying to the queries of King Arjuna. Unless and until Arjuna is satisfied and inherently believes in what Lord Krishna has to say ... there was no point in Krishna extolling the values of his sayings.

One believes the sacred Scriptures because Spiritual gurus who definitely had a wider spectrum of Spiritual Knowledge and thus are considered more experienced than us have written them. Even if we have neither read or possess any Scripture of any Religion yet we tend to believe in whatever our elders had mentioned in them.

Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.5

In 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.

One can pray 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

In 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.

Every 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.

Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.7

In Bhagvad Gita Summary chapter VIII shloka 7 Lord Krishna exhorts King Arjuna to fight the war of Dharma with their cousins King Duryodhana. He emphasizes upon the fact that it is not a fighting between relatives or Human Beings but it is a fight between Truthfulness and Adharma.

As King Duryodhana was not following the settled rules of the society there was no other way than to fight him. King Arjuna could not accept this statement of Lord Krishna and retorts that it would be totally unbecoming of him to be the cause of murder of his innocent relatives.

Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.8

In Bhagvad Gita Summary chapter VIII shloka 8 Lord Krishna extols the virtues that are required for one to cross the ocean of Samsara. Lord Krishna prevails upon the fact that placing our full concentration on the Almighty God the Creator of the cosmos after having gained control over the mind power one must exert himself day and night to have a Darshan of the Almighty God in its entirety. This was the only path by which one can attain a vision of the Almighty God.

Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.9

According to Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.9 (Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII-9), every seeker of truth, a true aspirant of Spirituality is one who remembers God Almighty of the cosmos in its different forms. Here God Almighty, has been termed as omniscient ... the knower of all.

As stated in Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII.9 what do we actually mean by being omniscient ... what is the real meaning behind knowing everything in the Cosmos. Knower of all can be one whose identity remains preserved since the beginning and until the end.
