Lord Krishna Bhagavad Gita


Mahabharata bhagavad gita - Hinduism bhagavad gita

Lord Krishna and Bhagavad Gita both form the core of Hinduism! In absence of Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata... the structure of Hinduism would be like a body without a soul atman! As the body simply cannot function without a soul atman... in absence of Bhagavad Gita Hinduism would primarily reduce to a religion... a dogma... a creed!

The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism forms the core of Hinduism beliefs! It is the teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita that form the core of life. Bereft of teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita... no human being could ever reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).

The teachings of Bhagavad Gita give a detailed route map of the path needed to be traveled for reaching the stage of enlightenment and salvation. It is by following dictates of Bhagavad Gita human gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and prophet Mohammed finally gained enlightenment in their lifetime... reached portals of God Almighty at the end of journey!

Gaining enlightenment in ones lifetime in absence of teachings of Lord Krishna contained in Bhagavad Gita is next to impossible... it just cannot be! For assimilating pearls of wisdom necessitated for traveling the spiritual path... one needs understanding gist of Bhagavad Gita in totality. Bhagavad Gita is simply not a book... it contains everything worth knowable on the path of spirituality... the path that takes one directly to the portals of God Almighty!

The 700 shlokas verses contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism are sufficient for human beings to travel the spiritual path... reach the stage of enlightenment and finally salvation! In no other religion or Scripture found world over one can reach the stage of enlightenment by fathoming the depth of wisdom contained in that particular religion or Scripture!

For knowing our real inner self... for knowing essence of our spirit... the consciousness within, for understanding true essence of life... the real self also termed soul atman... one needs fathoming the depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Right from stage of big bang to the stage of dissolution of cosmos (termed Pralaya in Hinduism)... all is detailed in Bhagavad Gita!


If we desire knowing God Almighty... one needs assimilating the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita! If we desire knowing definition of soul atman, the intricacies of doctrine of karma... the meaning of Dharma (righteousness)... we need understanding Bhagavad Gita, contents of which can never be understood literally... one needs following in between the lines!

For traveling the uncharted path of spirituality... for entering into invisible domain of souls atmans... for understanding the true meaning of life... for understanding why God Almighty created the whole cosmic system one needs following the essence of Bhagavad Gita ceremoniously! It is Bhagavad Gita that tells us for the first time relationship between human beings and our soul atman!

The moment we start assimilating the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... we realize the absolute truths of life like... it is our soul atman that is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations on the whole (an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years). The form of human beings just being a sojourn in the entire life span of a soul atman!


It is Bhagavad Gita that tells us for the first time that human form is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle. Only after passing through 7.3 million manifestations in insect, plant and animal form... our soul atman reaches... rather manifests the human form! As a human being we have 1.1 million manifestations to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana).

Enlightenment and salvation as per Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna is not that easily achieved. For reaching the stage of enlightenment and salvation in the human form... one needs passing through a maze of 1.1 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years) before our soul atman regains its lost original pure pristine primordial form!

Liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever for a soul atman becomes possible the moment human beings gained enlightenment! Reaching the stage of enlightenment is the end goal of life as per Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna! However best scientists world over indulge... the gist of Bhagavad Gita remains beyond capture of science.


The entire gist of Bhagavad Gita is based on faith in God Almighty. Science demands proofs that are not forthcoming in the field of spirituality... the absolute wisdom... the prime reason why scientists world over fail to understand the gist of Bhagavad Gita! Spirituality starts from the point where science ends.

Fundamentally science is meant for managing physical manifest life span of 70 to 80 years in the best possible manner! On the contrary... field of spirituality is diving deep into bottomless pit of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... understanding which one finally liberated self from cycle of birth and death forever... reached 8.4 millionth manifestation forever!

Both science and spirituality have different connotations... one meant for physical manifest life... the other for inner domain... the world of our soul atman... the spirit within! Using science in the best possible manner; human beings can reach any bracket of life on the physical manifest plane. However for traveling the spiritual path... knowing the intricacies of spirituality is necessitated!

The definition of spirituality... the meaning of spirituality is best clarified by sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! No other religion, belief, dogma or creed clarifies the meaning of spirituality with as much clarity as Hinduism. Spirituality stems from spirit... the supreme consciousness within us! By realizing our inner self... the real self of us human beings finally gained enlightenment and salvation.

People in West... followers of Christianity always remain under an illusion that Jesus Christ is the end of all! Following the path detailed in sacred Bible... no human being can ever reach portals of God Almighty! It just cannot be. Jesus Christ was born an ordinary mortal... by gaining wisdom in the Nalanda and Taxila universities of yore... Jesus Christ finally gained enlightenment!

Both Nalanda and Taxila universities lay in India... the erstwhile Bharatvarsha from where emanated Hinduism... the wisdom of Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads! Jesus Christ gaining enlightenment became possible during the missing years of Jesus Christ... the period during which Jesus Christ remained in India to fathom wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna!


Considering Jesus Christ as direct manifestation of God Almighty does not lead anywhere... the prime reason why Christianity has been termed a fanatical... fundamentalist religion! Followers of Christianity if they sincerely desire reaching the portals of God Almighty... the stage of enlightenment and salvation... need fathoming the wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!

A follower of Christianity or any other religion need not convert to Hinduism for assimilating the pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita. The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism has universal appeal... its fundamentals can be followed by anyone belonging to any religion, belief, caste or creed. Even while following ones religion one can easily fathom the gist of Bhagavad Gita!

For understanding Bhagavad Gita one needs rising above all biases and dogmas! We simply cannot remain clutched to old beliefs if we desire following doctrine of Bhagavad Gita... the teachings by Lord Krishna! Bhagavad Gita encompasses teachings of truthfulness with hundred percent purity... while following Bhagavad Gita one need not refer to any other Scripture or religious book!


When young... 13 years of age I wanted to follow the sacred teachings of Bhagavad Gita ceremoniously! With none to guide, I simply followed the dictates of my soul atman... the voice of my soul atman that seemed to come from within my heart. I was not wrong... the voice of my soul atman finally landed me on the path of pure spirituality... the path of absolute wisdom!

By remaining truthful always and ever in life ever since six years of age, I never had to look back having started my journey on the spiritual path! Step-by-step... chapter by chapter I assimilated the essence of life that was contained in teachings of various enlightened masters like Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana.

God Almighty always remains eluded from us no matter what! In the circumstances reaching the portals of God Almighty becomes extremely difficult... something impossible to achieve in ones lifetime of 70 to 80 years! Yet, the ways of God Almighty are full of mystery! Establishing absolute control over five senses and mind, practicing absolute celibacy for a period of 14 years in continuation I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age.


For a serious seeker of spirituality... the portals of God are always open! For one who seeks truthfully, God Almighty always awaits the coming! Enlightenment needs following path of spirituality with absolute truthfulness, patience, persistence and perseverance at its best! It is not one in thousand or a million who gained enlightenment... it is one in many billions!

As God Almighty demands it... enlightenment can only be gained by one or two persons world over at a time... the prime reason why in the last about 150 years only two persons reached the stage of enlightenment... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana! Both these enlightened ones proceeded via path of bhakti yoga but subsequently switched to path of jnana yoga!

It is Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to humanity by Lord Krishna that details... the journey of life belongs to our soul atman... the absolute master and controller of the body! It is our soul atman that manifests the human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! As dross impurities within human beings lessened... one gained wisdom on spiritual path!


Absolute wisdom is not to be gained from somewhere outside! The entire wisdom of cosmos is sandwiched inside us in our soul atman. By enacting right karma human beings reduced dross impurities within soul atman. The moment complete dross impurities within soul atman removed... human beings reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!

Enlightenment can also never be gained by ceremoniously following the path of religion... the path of rituals! Simply by praying and worshiping God nothing on the spiritual path can be gained. It is only by following the path of spirituality... the inner wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism can be understood!

Ever since our soul atman manifested the human form... it is within the capability of human beings to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) in ones lifetime. One only needs enacting the right karma to reach the stage of absolute wisdom... the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the stage of absolute nothingness!


The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita also enumerates that as human beings we need controlling the five senses and mind in totality in order to reach the stage of enlightenment and salvation. Apart from controlling five senses and mind... practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation is also necessitated.

As a mortal... a normal human being establishing control over sensual desires is extremely difficult! Establishing absolute control over five senses and mind is a gigantic task. It is only by following the path of absolute truthfulness one reaches the upper end of spirituality... when full awakening of the kundalini is experienced.

Full awakening of the kundalini results in opening of the Sahasrara Chakra (thousand petaled Lotus) in our brain. The moment this happens... the wisdom of the cosmos becomes available to us... one finally reaches the stage of kaivalya jnani... becomes an enlightened one... a wiser human being for all times to come!


For a kaivalya jnani, an enlightened one... journey of life finally comes to an end. Nowhere to go further an enlightened one shall gain salvation (moksha) the moment death of mortal frame occurs. As per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism one thing is absolutely clear... follow the path of spirituality not religion for reaching portals of God... the kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism).

In our day-to-day life we ritually go to temple, church or mosque but to what avail! Simply by praying or worshiping God... the stains of bad karma never get washed! It is only by indulgence in good karma... positive karma... Punya karma one finally gets ahead in the journey of spiritual life... never otherwise! One can never get absolved of the sins committed simply by prayers of worshiping!

The path of spirituality as per Bhagavad Gita demands highest level of perfection possible for a human being. Reaching stage of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed is no joke. What is required to be achieved in a maximum of 1.1 million manifestations... if we desire achieving it in a life span of 70 to 80 years; the efforts have to be phenomenal, preponderous!


The coming of Lord Krishna in Dwapar Yuga had a purpose. Lord Krishna was an avatar of his era... God manifest in human form! In a time full of strife... when things go beyond control... the coming of a Messiah (a man God coupled with powers of Chanakya) is necessitated! In such times only an avatar can reestablish Dharma (righteousness) and root out adharma (lawlessness) forever.

The whole doctrine of Bhagavad Gita rotates around following ones Dharma (righteousness) when faced with adharma (lawlessness). If we analyze the situation before coming of Lord Krishna... humanity still survived the rigors of day-to-day life but with disdain! Before coming of Lord Krishna existed Vedas and some Upanishads!

The Hindu Vedas were first words of God invoked by mankind! The Vedas are voluminous documents... unpalatable by masses... the commoners! With the coming of Lord Krishna... the gist of entire Vedas was reduced to Bhagavad Gita (also termed Vedanta... end of Vedas)! Now the mankind could easily... sanctimoniously follow the precepts contained in Bhagavad Gita!


God Almighty had reduced the burden of mankind to understand the voluminous Vedas. With the coming of doctrine of Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna had summarized the wisdom of the ages to 700 shlokas verses! In present times... the gist of Bhagavad Gita is found hung on the wall in most bookshops of India... something that can be understood by the commoner... the masses!

Even though the original script of sacred Bhagavad Gita is available for only $.60 (Rupees 30/=) at most railway stations of India... yet, most human beings fail to understand the underlying meaning of the 700 shlokas (verses). Dominated by a bloated ego... the wanton desires and greed for materialistic riches... most human beings continue following a life of rituals... the path of religion!

Bhagavad Gita does not differentiate between a laborer and a king! In the eyes of God Almighty all human beings are same. The destiny of a human being is always governed by karma performed. Those with a sunny disposition and godly thinking always continue enacting good karma... positive karma but those indulging in vice failed to get out of clutches of negative karma... bad karma!


For human beings to travel path of pure spirituality... we have to enact positive karma, good karma all the time! It is only by negating karma forever human beings finally emancipated from cycle of birth and death! Indulgence in right karma... positive karma... Punya karma all the time is mantra of the day but how many people indulged in positive affairs of life?

Even though gist of Bhagavad Gita was available cheap (totally subsidized)... most human beings world over never indulge in teachings of Bhagavad Gita with absolute faith in God Almighty. The kingdom of God... the stage of enlightenment can only be reached by following dictates of Bhagavad Gita with absolute truthfulness!

However best we may try... God Almighty can never be cheated! The doctrine of karma takes care of that. As we perform... accordingly shapes our destiny! For gaining control of life... for understanding words of wisdom contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... we have to follow the path of spirituality in total earnestness!


There is no shortcut method to understanding Bhagavad Gita... or reaching the stage of enlightenment and salvation! The teachings of Lord Krishna are supreme on mother Earth! If we believe in God almighty... if we believe in Lord Krishna... if we believe in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism ceremoniously... there is no reason why we should not reach 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in cosmic life cycle!
