Gita shloka VIII-1- Bhagvad
Gita 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.
As stated in Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII-1 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.
after we fathom the depths of various Scriptures do we recommend them to others.
Now we believe them as never before. We have a testimony on which we can rely
upon as we have neither mesmerized nor gobbled up whatever was written in the
having been able to understand the inner truths one is always and ever ready to
impart this knowledge to the common folk. Have you ever tried teaching someone
that which you yourselves do not follow? Such principles in Life do not work ...
particularly in the field of Spirituality wherein most of the principles are based
upon Faith in the Almighty God and his system.
people have tried to blindly follow the dictates of their leader ... at a certain
stage later one has always experienced problems. Why? Is it that one who calls
himself the knower has lesser knowledge even then the followers? In most of the
cases this is a truth that the teacher himself is unable to assimilate. He has
a weaker foundation. We must always try to emulate the Teachings of a Spiritual
guru who is in actual terms the knower of all that is worth knowing.
Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII-1 Why do I emphasize things again and again! Is something
wrong with Vijay Kumar ... Repetition makes learning easier ... we tend to forget
whatever is not repeated again and again? In the Spiritual realm, the repetition
is termed as mantras. As in actual Life we keep on repeating our habits again
and again ... in the similar manner repetition of various sacred texts makes our
Life worthwhile. We can now differentiate the wrong from the right and discard
daily repeat our various chores yet, we never feel out of harmony. Repetition
is not a bad habit if indulged in matters of spiritual pursuit. Repetition makes
a person wiser as one has the power of God guiding us from time to time. We need
not go to the temples, the churches or places of holy gatherings for the purpose
of learning the efficacy of mantras. Remaining wherever you are and in normal
circumstances one can learn those subtle truths of Life that one could not have
ever learnt without repetition of the mantras.
Bhagvad Gita chapter VIII shloka 1 (Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII-1) King Arjuna addresses
Lord Krishna to learn the cause for the existence of Brahma (Brahman, the Creator
of the cosmos), meaning Adhyatma (study of atman the soul within) and the significance
of performing Karma as a Human Being.
us take an example- I exist and so must my parents. The parents existed because
they had their parents. The chain is endless yet we do not seem to reach any conclusion
... to counter this phenomenon came the concept that as nothing can be created
out of nothing ... there has got to be a Creator who set the ball rolling.
who created the Creator himself is the biggest question of all ... the Mother
of all queries. The Definition God is not very difficult ... we Human Beings perceive
all things in the universe from the angle of senses. This sets a limitation as
to the actual perception and feeling.
the story of four handicapped friends who tried to imagine the shape of an elephant.
According to one elephant is like a snake for he had the trunk of the elephant
in hand! Was he right? We do not utilize much of the mind power one possesses.
we the control of mind power even to a limited extent everything would have been
clear to all from the very birth itself. We need to rise above the limitation
of senses, gain control of mind power and learn the cosmic truths in order to
see the glory of god in its pristine form.
per Bhagvad Gita shloka VIII-1 things do not happen as per our planning and control.
God is a potential source of energy which keeps everything in the Cosmos self-rotating
... no one created the Creator ... we can consider it to be a phenomenon ... self-programmable!!
pray, we get the results ... if we do not; we keep waiting for a miracle to happen.
The whole Cosmos is self-sustained. The total power of all purified Atmans existing
in the cosmos is what we call God Almighty ... the Brahma himself.
the time of pralaya ... all atmans in the cosmos (The Soul Within) in whatever
manifestation they may be ... purify and come back to their original state. So
much is the concentration of energy that this primordial ball of energy, half
the size of a thumb explodes again leading to a new chain of universes, galaxies
and clusters of stars ... the total process known as Big Bang.
created whom!! None created anything ... all was the result of a happening which
was self propelling and uncontrollable. all atmans scattered all over the universes
after a certain period of time try to manifest themselves in order to remove the
dross within. This leads to their germination of a body on a planet that can support
Life like that on earth. And the "Matrix Revolution" is born.
every Human Being needs a medium to pray ... the cause of all temples, churches
and mosques ... we also need to imagine the existence of god the Creator.
