    Bhagvad Geeta : A text for complete human development

    Shreemad Bhagvad Geeta is an amalgamation of Bhakti (devotion) , Gyan (Knowledge) , Yoga (meditation) or Karma Sanyasa(Karmic renunciation) but with a different connotation.

    Lord Krishna had never advocated Sanyasa or karmic renunciation. As a matter of fact, Lord Krishna affirmed that he too is bound to perform his duties to administer the world otherwise every single individual would contravene the laws of nature and commit unlawful activities that could witness a disastrous end. ...  more

  • Silence : A calming source for the Soul

    Mind houses many complexes. One needs to assess the mind and if any defilement arises such as anger or aversion then through the practice of meditation and the inner strength, one needs to purify the mind. Once the mind gets purified then the person would be able to rise to the highest level of spirituality. Austerity of mind includes one major feature which is silence. In meditative sessions, silence is used as a major component to control as well as sharpen the mind and also to get rid of the...  more
  • A disciplined life

    Mind, as Lord Krishna says can be one’s best friend as well as the worst adversary. Lord states that it is a must for human beings to transform the mind to be their best friend. In order to make the mind one’ best friend, it is important to observe certain features which would purify the mind and remove its fickleness. Contentment, self discipline, silence, purification of mind by purging of complexes are austerities of mind.

    Contentment or satisfaction with whatever one has in possession....  more
  • Tools for Immaculate Karma

    Lord Krishna declares in Bhagavad Gita that in this world, there is nothing incomparable and pure as divine knowledge. A person obtains the nectar of such knowledge after years of persistent and conscientious deliverance of righteous deeds (Parmarth Karma).

    Once a person reaches the state of divine trance and devotes himself into welfare service for the human kind then he/she develops the cognition that service to the human race is the ultimate devotional service towards GOD. The person would...  more
  • Unwise Karma

    Arjuna was completely drowned in the plight of self created notions when he saw his loved ones on the other side. Arjuna with tears of entreaty asked Krishna that if HE reckons that one should follow his intellect then why is HE advising him to get involved in a macabre war?

    Arjuna’s situation of mental disintegration was nothing new. A person gets entangled in the labyrinth of his own illogical thoughts which according to him are justifiably rational. It is in this state of deadlock in...  more
  • Source of Pure Karma : Worship

    Lord Krishna stated about the essence of devotion and worship. Lord emphasized upon the pious characteristics of Worship and reiterated that the fruits of actions are based on the quality of one’s actions. Lord Krishna gives a practical message by saying that if a person holds a condition while offering prayers then the result of his actions would be in the form of a condition and not completely favourable.

    It can be construed in a way that if platonic love exists between a married couple...  more

    Lord Krishna declared that HE is the beginning, middle and the end. Lord Krishna states that HE is illimitable. In chapter 10, Lord Krishna presents the verbal manifestation about HIMSELF.

    Lord Krishna described about HIS ubiquitous existence in the world. As in every family, the head of family is the preponderant figure and other family members feature as a cohesive enterprise. The family members do carry their respective powers of decisiveness but the final consent will always be provided...  more
  • Karma that is devoid of myths

    It is melancholic to observe that Bhagavad Gita has been branded as a recital at a person’s demise intended for right transmigration of soul or attainment of salvation or for other devotional purposes. Such outrageous beliefs have demeaned the sacrosanct rendition by GOD Krishna for the welfare of humankind. The society is blindfolded with myths and practice of various customs for appeasing GOD for fulfillment of desires. I am not in any manner criticizing any of the customary rituals but I...  more
