Day in, day out, we identify ourselves with this body of ours. We look our body in the mirror & feel that this is our real self. However, this delusion of ours goes momentarily, when we see someone dead. Then we think, that one day this body shall die. If you are a non-believer then you may think that a person is dead forever but if you believe in God & religion then you may think otherwise that the Soul of a person has survived the body at death.

In fact we are the Soul inside our body & this Soul can never die though body may die. As per the 'Bhagwat Gita', our body is like our clothes that we wear on our body & after death these worn out clothes are dropped by the embodied Soul. In that sense our body is the Overcoat of our Soul inside. We in essence are a 'Soul' & this 'Soul' of ours shall take another body (read, shall wear another pair of clothes / Overcoat) after death. So this eternal Soul is indestructible which changes its present embodied form/body for another embodied form/body, when the physical body dies.
Below are some verses of 'Bhagwat Gita' which explains the same truth.

First one is "Verse - 22, Chapter Two of Bhagwat Gita"

“vasansi jirn-nani yatha vihaay
navani grihnati naro-parani
tatha sharirani vihaya jirnany-
anyani sanyati navani dehi” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter II verse 22)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: As a person discarding worn-out clothes, puts on new garments, likewise the embodied soul, casting off worn-out bodies,enters into other bodies which are new."

Second one is "Verse - 23, Chapter Two of Bhagwat Gita"

“nainum chindanti shastrani
nainum dahati pavaka
na chainam kledayanty-apo
na soshayati maruta” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter II verse 23)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: Weapons cannot cut the soul, nor it can be burned by fire, nor water can moisten it, nor wind can make it dry."

Third one is "Verse - 24, Chapter Two of Bhagwat Gita"

“acchedyo-ayam adahyo-ayam
akledyo-asoshya ev ch
nity sarv-gatah sthanur
achalo-ayam sanatanah” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter II verse 24)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: For this individual soul is incapable of being cut; and insoluble, and can be neither burned nor dried. This soul is eternal, constant, omnipresent, unchangeable, immovable and everlasting."

Fourth one is "Verse - 30, Chapter Two of Bhagwat Gita"

"dehi nityam avadhyo-ayam
dehe sarvasy bharat
tasmat sarvani bhutani
na tvam shochitum-arhasi” (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter II verse 30)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: O descendant of Bharata, this soul residing in the bodies of all can never be slain. Therefore you should not grieve for any living being."

Jai Shri Krishna

‘Food Security’ of Birds & Animals

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
Recently Indian government passed “National Food Security Act” which aims to provide food grains guarantee to all of the India's 1.2 billion people. Similarly World Health Organization (WHO) in its World Food Summit has defined “Food Security” as existing “when all people on this earth, at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. So basically it has been thought by the Governments & Organizations around the world that all humans on earth should have ‘Food Security’ at all times till they live on this Earth.

Now just look around your house, near trees etc. & see how many birds live on these trees? Similarly just imagine, how many insects, animals etc. live near your place. In fact if you just calculate, all these birds, animals, insects etc. living in places around your house are much much more in numbers than humans living around you. If there are around 7000 Million humans living on this earth then there are many many times more, birds, animals, fishes, insects etc. living on this earth. In fact al these species are so much in number that we cannot calculate their number.

Now who provides ‘Food Security’ at all times to all these innumerable numbers of birds, animals, fishes, insects etc. on this earth? No Government or Organization on this earth ensures that all these species living on this earth get ‘Food Security’ at all times while they live on this earth. Then who in this universe is ensuring that all the species born on this earth get enough food daily till they live on this earth in their lifetime. Are you not amazed, how these infinite species are getting their food sustenance on this earth. Who is ensuring & providing daily food to all these species?

In fact “Almighty God” & all powerful Lord who has Created all these infinite number of species is only Sustaining all of them. God only is providing daily food to all these species. God only is ensuring ‘Food Security’ at all times while these species live on this earth. God only is the creator & sustainer of all these species on earth. So all these birds, animals, fishes, insects etc. living on this earth are sustained by God only.

God is all powerful. He is almighty. He is the Lord of the Universe. Oh Lord! You are the sustainer of all human beings & all species. Once Rukmani, wife of Lord Krishna asked Him to give her a proof that He as the Lord of the Universe is ensuring food to all the species born in this universe. On this Lord Krishna pointed to a stone & asked Rukmani, to bring that stone to Him. When she brought that stone, Lord Krishna asked Rukmani to break that stone. When she broke that stone, she found an insect sitting in that stone & that insect was having a piece of grain in it's mouth. On seeing this Rukmani praised Lord Krishna that really, as a Lord of all creatures, He is providing Food Security to all beings at all the times in this universe.

God also is the remover of the agonies & sorrows of His devotees. A devotee who is immersed in the devotion of the Lord reaps the fruits of Lord's love & blessings. Such a devotee enjoys the Joy, prosperity & health in life. God enters the home of such a devotee & always protects that person & his/her family.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita in which God illustrates that He is the creator & Sustainer of all the Universes.

"yad yad vibhutimat sattvam
srimad urjitam eva va
tat tad evavagaccha tvam
mama tejo-’msa-sambhavam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 41)

"Sri Krishna said: Know that all opulent, beautiful and glorious Universes & creations spring from but a spark of My splendor."

"yac chapi sarva-bhutanam
bijam tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vina yat syan
maya bhutam characharam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 39)

"Sri Krishna said: Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all Universes & existences. There is no being—moving or nonmoving—that can exist without Me."

"aham atma gudakesha
sarva-bhutasaya-sthitah
aham adis cha madhyam cha
bhutanam anta eva cha" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 20)

"Sri Krishna said: I am the Super Soul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings."

So let's all worship that almighty & all powerful Lord who is of the Creator & Sustainer of all Universes & all beings. He is called by different names in the world like, Rama, Krishna, Shiva, Allah, Jesus etc. So let's pray to that one God who is sustaining all of us.

Jai Shri Krishna

Follow Lord Krishna through 'Bhakti Yoga' (Path of Devotion)

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
Lord Krishna is all powerful, all-mighty. He lifted Govardhan Mountain on His finger in His youth only. In fact He holds & sustains all this visible universe. All the big saints are called great Yogis. Lord Shiva is called Yogishwar, which means He is Eashwar (God) among all Yogis. Lord Krishna is loved & prayed by Yogishwar Lord Shiva also. So Lord Krishna is ‘Supreme Deity” & praying Him, having devotion in Him will remove all sins of a person & that person shall get divine bliss in life.

So if a person follows the path of devotion (Bhakti Yoga) towards Lord Krishna then that person gets the unalloyed Bhakti of Lord Krishna. If a person gains love of Lord Krishna, if once the chanting of Lord Krishna’s holy name begins to thrill the devotee with joy, what effort is needed for the control of passions afterwards? The control of senses, passion comes of itself. So one absorbed in the love of Lord Krishna cannot think of sense-pleasures.

As per the Bhagwat Gita, devotion is the easiest method to know the truth about self knowledge / soul knowledge & get close to the God. In "Bhagwat Gita", Lord Krishna Says that if a person is devoted to God only then God rescues that person from ocean of Birth & Death i.e. that man becomes eligible for permanent life beyond death forever with God. God is very clear that once a person comes in God's refuge, then all his problems are solved & God becomes his protector in this life & life beyond. God assures that his devotee never falls again in life as He always protect him.

God himself declares about the glory of devotion in Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 65 & 66 which are here given below.

"man-mana bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaishyasi satyam te
pratijane priyo ’si me" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 65)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend."

"sarva-dharman parityajya
mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo
mokshayisyami ma suchah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 66)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear."

In "Bhagwat Gita", Lord Krishna Says that if a person is devoted to God only then God rescues that person from ocean of Birth & Death i.e. that man becomes eligible for permanent life beyond death forever with God.

As per (Gita: Chapter XII verse 8) God says that:

"mayy eva mana adhatsva
mayi buddhim nivesaya
nivasisyasi mayy eva
ata urdhvam na samsayah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Twelve verse 8)

"Fix Your mind on Me (God) and establish your reasoning in Me (God) alone; thereafter doing so you shall abide in Me (God) only. There is no doubt about it. "

' Ye tu srvani krmani
myi sanyasya mat-para
anany-naiv yogen
maam dhyayant upasate '
' Tesham-aham samud-dharta
mrityu-sansar-saagrat
bhavami na-chirat parth
mayy-avesita-chetsam ' (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter XII verse 6-7)

'Those people, who worship Me by surrendering all their activities unto Me, are always devoted to Me, always meditate upon Me, Having always fixing their minds upon Me, O Parth - to them, I swiftly rescue from the ocean of birth and death.'

So as per assurance given by Lord Krishna in Gita, Lets all be devotees of Lord Krishna only & let's pray for Him daily.

Jai Shri Krishna

It is said that God is present in all creation, He sits in every atom of the universe. He is seated within all the infinite space. All creation exists & lives within His Infinite body. He is seated in everyone's heart & also lives in mine & your hearts. This infinite God is only called "Brahmn".

"One who is there in Space,
One who is there in Sun,
One who is there in Fire,
One who is there in Earth,
One who is there in Moon,
One who is there in Water,
One who is there in Your Heart,
One who is there in My Heart,

Below are some verses from Bhagwat Gita which illustrates the same:

"aham atma gudakesha
sarva-bhutasaya-sthitah
aham adis cha madhyam cha
bhutanam anta eva cha" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 20)

"Sri Krishna said: I am the Super Soul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings."

"adityanam aham vishnur
jyotisam ravir amsuman
maricir marutam asmi
nakshatranam aham sasi" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 21)

"Sri Krishna said: Of the Adityas I am Vishnu, of lights I am the radiant sun, of the Maruts I am Marici, and among the stars I am the moon."

"sarganam adir antas cha
madhyam chaivaham arjuna
adhyatma-vidya vidyanam
vadah pravadatam aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 32)

"Sri Krishna said: Of all creations I am the beginning and the end and also the middle, O Arjuna. Of all sciences I am the spiritual science of the self, and among logicians I am the conclusive truth."

"yac chapi sarva-bhutanam
bijam tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vina yat syan
maya bhutam characharam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 39)

"Sri Krishna said: Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being—moving or nonmoving—that can exist without Me."

Lord Krishna was Lord Rama in previous Incarnation

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
Lord Krishna & Lord Rama were incarnations of Lord Vishnu who descended on earth in different times. In Hindu mythology Lord Vishnu is responsible for the preservation or maintenance of this world, so He comes on this earth from His celestial abode (Vaikuntha) from time to time for the establishment of Dharma (righteousness). In such a role He puts law & order in it's place on earth & kills the evil elements in the society. So such a coming on this earth of Lord Vishnu is called descending of an Avatar of Lord Vishnu.

Avatar or Avatara (अवतार, Avatāra), is incarnation of God on earth. It literally means descent (avatarati) and usually implies a deliberate descent from higher spiritual realms to lower realms of existence for special purposes. Lord Sri Krishna was one of those Avatars of Lord Vishnu. In the past there had been so many Avatars of Lord Vishnu. In Lord Sri Krishna's case you can call these as His previous births but with a special purpose to establish Dharma (righteousness) on this earth. Below are verses from Bhagwat Gita which explain that only:

"yada yada hi dharmasya
glanir bhavati bharata
abhyutthanam adharmasya
tadatmanam srjamy aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Four verse 7)

"paritranaya sadhunam
vinasaya cha duskritam
dharma-samsthapanarthaya
sambhavami yuge yuge" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Four verse 8)

"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: Whenever Dharma, or the situation of law and order, is endangered on this world, I incarnate onto this world to re establish Dharma, law and order, and to protect the Sadhus or saints and to destroy the evil elements of the society. I do so appear, millennium after millennium."

So in this way Lord Vishnu. descended on earth in Treta Yuga as Lord Rama & later on in Dwapar Yuga, Lord Vishnu descended on earth as Lord Krishna. In "Treta Yuga" Lord Vishnu appeared as Ramachandra, the prince and king of Ayodhya who killed demon king Ravana. The great epic Ramayana speaks of the glory of the Rama Avatar of Lord Vishnu. However the same Lord Vishnu appeared in "Dwapara Yuga as Lord Krishna along with his brother Balarama" Mahabharata speaks of Balarama and Krishna in detail.

In the "Bhagwat Gita Chapter Ten-Verse 31", "Lord Krishna" himself clearly says that "Among the wielders of weapons, He himself is Lord Rama."

"pavanah pavatam asmi
ramah shastra-bhrtam aham
jhasanam makaras chasmi
srotasam asmi jahnavi" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 31)

"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: Of purifiers I am the wind, of the wielders of weapons I am Rama, of fishes I am the shark, and of flowing rivers I am the Ganges."

So this verse clearly establishes that "Lord Rama" & "Lord Krishna" are the forms of Supreme God, "Lord Vishnu" only & hence are one & the same one being. So let's worship "Lord Rama" & "Lord Krishna" equally as both are incarnations of "Lord Vishnu" who came to this earth in different point of times in history to help the humanity.

Jai Shri Krishna

When God came to take Man with Him

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
Once a man living in a village died. When he realized it, he saw God coming closer to him with a suitcase in his hand.

- God said: Alright son, its time to go.
- Surprised, the man responded: Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans...
- I'm so sorry but its time to go....

- What do you have in that suitcase? the man asked.
- God answered: Your belongings.
- My belongings? you mean my things, my clothes, my money?
- God answered: Those things were not yours, they belonged to the earth.

- Is it my memories? the man asked.
- God answered: those never belonged to you, they belonged to the Time

- Is it my talents?
- God answered: those were never yours they belonged to the circumstances.

- Is it my friends and family?
- God answered: I'm sorry they were never yours, they belonged to the path.

- Is it my wife and son?
- God answered: They were never yours, they belonged to your heart.

- Is it my body?
- God answered: that was never yours, it belonged to the dust.

- Is it my soul?
- God answered: No that is mine.

Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from God and opened it just to find out that the suitcase was empty.
- With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: I never had anything???
- God answered: that is correct, every moment you lived were only yours. Life is just a moment. a moment that belongs to you. For this reason enjoy this time while you have it & always do Good Karmas. Don't let anything that you think you own, stop you from doing Good Karmas.

- Live Now
- Live your life
- Don't forget to be happy, that is the only thing that matters.
- Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here.

-YOU CAN'T TAKE ANYTHING WITH  YOU IN THE END.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita which describe about the abode of God :

"a-brahma-bhuvanal lokah
punar avartino ’rjuna
mam upetya tu kaunteya
punar janma na vidyate" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eight verse 16)

"Sri Krishna said: From the highest planet in the material world down to the lowest, all are places of misery wherein repeated birth and death take place. But one who attains to My Supreme Supreme abode, O Arjuna, never takes birth again.

"purushah sa parah partha
bhaktya labhyas tv ananyaya
yasyantah-sthani bhutani
yena sarvam idam tatam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eight verse 22)

"Sri Krishna said: The Lord / God, who is greater than all, is attainable by unalloyed devotion. Although He is present in His Spiritual abode, He is all-pervading, and everything is situated within Him."

So in this life, you only need to do good things, good Karmas only as that is what shall go with you when God shall come to take you with Him. If you have done good Karmas then God shall keep you with Him in His Abode, otherwise you shall need to take birth so many times again & again before you able to live in God's abode.

Jai Shri Krishna

गीता सार, हिंदी में - Gita Saar in Hindi with English Translation

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
हाँ नीचे भागवत गीता के दर्शन का संक्षिप्त सार है. भागवत गीता का उपदेश भारत के हरियाणा राज्य में कुरुक्षेत्र के युद्ध के मैदान पर अपने शिष्य अर्जुन को, भगवान कृष्ण, भगवान स्वयं के द्वारा दिया गया.  इन शिक्षाओं को 5000 साल पहले दिया गया था लेकिन ये हमारे जीवन में आज भी उतनी ही प्रासंगिक हैं.

(Here below is the brief essence of the Philosophy of Bhagwat Gita. Teachings of Bhagwat Gita were given by Lord Krishna, the God Himself to his disciple Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra in Haryana State of India. These teachings were given more than 5000 years ago but these are still relevant today in our lives. )
  • अतीत में जो कुछ भी हुआ, वह अच्छे के लिए हुआ, जो कुछ हो रहा हैअच्छा हो रहा है, जो भविष्य में होगा, अच्छा ही होगा. अतीत के लिए मत रोओ, अपने वर्तमान जीवन पर ध्यान केंद्रित करो , भविष्य के लिए चिंता मत करो 
  • (Whatever happened in the past, it happened for the good; Whatever is happening, is happening for the good; Whatever shall happen in the future, shall happen for the good only. Do not weep for the past, do not worry for the future, concentrate on your present life.)
  • जन्म के समय में आप क्या लाए थे जो अब खो दिया है? आप ने क्या पैदा किया था जो नष्ट हो गया है?  जब आप पैदा हुए थे, तब आप कुछ भी साथ नहीं लाए थे.  आपके पास जो कुछ भी है,  आप को इस धरती पर भगवान से ही प्राप्त हुआ है.  आप इस धरती पर जो भी दोगे, तुम भगवान को ही दोगे.  हर कोई खाली हाथ इस दुनिया में आया था और खाली हाथ ही उसी रास्ते पर चलना होगा. सब कुछ केवल भगवान के अंतर्गत आता है
  • (What did you bring at the time of birth, that you have lost? What did you produce,  which is destroyed? You didn't bring anything when you were born. Whatever you have, you have received it from the God only while on this earth. Whatever you will give, you will give it to the God. Everyone came in this world empty handed and shall go the same way. Everything belongs to God only.)
  • आज जो कुछ आप का है,  पहले किसी और का था और भविष्य में किसी और का हो जाएगा. परिवर्तन संसार का नियम है. 
  • (Whatever belongs to you today, belonged to someone else earlier and shall belong to some one else in future. Change is the law of the universe.)
  • आप एक अविनाशी आत्मा हैं और एक मृत्युमय शरीर नहीं है. शरीर पांच तत्वों से बना है - पृथ्वी, अग्नि, जल, वायु और आकाश।  एक दिन शरीर इन तत्वों में लीन हो जाएगा
  • (You are an indestructible Soul & not a body. Body is composed of five elements - Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Sky; one day body shall perish in these elements.)
  • आत्मा अजन्म है और कभी नहीं मरता है. आत्मा मरने के बाद भी हमेशा के लिए रहता है.  तो क्यों व्यर्थ की चिंता करते हो? आप किस बात से डर रहे हैं?  कौन तुम्हें मार सकता है
  • (Soul lives forever even after death as soul is never born & never dies. So Why do you worry unnecessarily? What are you afraid of? Who can kill you?)
  • केवल सर्वशक्तिमान ईश्वर के लिए अपने आप को समर्पित करो.  जो भगवान का सहारा लेगा, उसे हमेशा भय, चिंता और निराशा से मुक्ति मिलेगी. 
  • (Devote yourself to the Almighty God only. One who takes the support of God, always gains freedom from fear, worry and despair.)
Jai Shri Krishna

Arjuna - Disciple & Devotee of Lord Krishna

Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY YAHOO! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY GOOGLE! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY MSN! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in MY AOL! Subscribe to Bhagwat Gita & Our Life in Rojo!
Before the Mahabharata war, both "Arjuna" & "Duryodhana" (the two opponents in the war) went to "Lord Krishna" for His help in the war. At that time "Lord Krishna" was having a nap. "Duryodhana" came a little earlier than "Arjuna" & stood toward the head (pillow side) of "Lord Krishna". "Arjuna" came a little late & due to his devotion to "Lord Krishna" stood near His feet.

When Lord Krishna woke up He saw Arjuna first & then saw Duryodhana. He asked both, why they have come to Him at this moment. Both told Lord Krishna that as the battle is near they wanted Lord Krishna's help in this war. At this Lord Krishna agreed to give help to both & asked Arjuna first, how He can help him. At this Duryodhana said to Lord Krishna , "I have come before Arjuna to You so you should fulfil my desire first." At this Lord Krishna said to Duryodhana, "Though you have come before Arjuna, but I saw him first, so he should be given the first choice to ask." At this Duryodhana was perturbed that Arjuna shall ask all His armies from Him & he shall be left with nothing.

Lord Krishna told Arjuna that he has a choice, either he can take His whole army or he can choose Him alone. But when Arjuna asked Lord Krishna that he only wanted Him & nothing else, Duryodhana was perplexed & thought Arjuna to be a foolish person that he has asked for Lord Krishna alone than His big army. At this Lord Krishna told Arjuna that though he can choose Him alone but in the war He will not fight & He shall only be his charioteer. He told Arjuna that if he chooses Him alone then he shall be deprived of His whole big army. But Arjuna wanted Lord Krishna alone & not His army & accepted Lord Krishna as his charioteer.

At all this discussion, Duryodhana kept mum & thought, what Lord Krishna shall do without the army. Duryodhana actually wanted Lord Krishna's big army only & asked for that army when he got the chance. So Duryodhana got Lord Krishna's army.

Arjuna was a true devotee of Lord Krishna & knew that He was the God of the universe. He knew about all the powers of Lord Krishna & also knew that God in the form of Krishna shall save him & lead him to victory. He was having much faith in Lord Krishna than His army. Due to his faith in Lord Krishna only, ultimately he won the war while Duryodhana lost the war.

In Bhagwat Gita Lord Krishna tells Arjuna to always have faith in Him only as, whosoever, keeps faith in Lord Krishna, He always protects that devotee.

"man-mana bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaishyasi satyam te
pratijane priyo ’si me" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 65)


"Lord Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend."

"sarva-dharman parityajya
mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo
mokshayisyami ma suchah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 66)


"Lord Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear."
In the last verse of Bhagwat Gita, "Sanjaya" is also of the same opinion.

"yatra yogeshvarah krsno
yatra partho dhanur-dharah
tatra srir vijayo bhutir
dhruva nitir matir mama" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 78)


"Sanjaya said: Wherever there is Krishna, the master of all mystics, and wherever there is Arjuna, the supreme archer, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. That is my opinion."

So let's have complete faith in "Lord Krishna" & let's be His devotee. By having devotion in Him we shall be saved always by Him in all circumstances. Jai Sri Krishna.

Jai Shri Krishna

Who has created the Sun, Moon & Stars?

Every morning Sun emerges from the eastern horizon & dispels the darkness of night. With the help of light of the Sun whole world gets lit up & all creatures are able to sustain themselves. Sun is the source of energy to this world & it's energy nurtures our earth just like a mother feeds her children. Now just imagine if Sun stops rising in the morning. In such a case all the creatures including us shall come to perish for the want of sunlight & it's energy.

Who has created this Sun & who in this Universe is ensuring that it rises daily from the east to sustain all creatures?  Who has created the Moon & Stars? Certainly no human being has done this. Sun, Moon & Stars were created by the Supreme Power called God & only He is ensuring that it rises daily & that all creation is maintained.

In general God is the faith of human beings that a Supernatural Power exists in this universe which has created us & all other universal forms. He is having supernatural powers, who is omniscient (knows everything), who is omnipresent (who is present everywhere), omnipotent (who is having all the powers & is all powerful), who is Infinite in size, knowledge & powers, one who is imperishable & indestructible. Faith of humans in such a big & great entity having all the powers is known as God.

In Bhagwat Gita Chapter Ten, Lord Krishna is saying that he is the source of all beings & gods. Not even that as per Lord Krishna, all these universes & creations spring from but a spark of His splendor only.

This whole world has it's existence in that Universal Soul (God) only. God is like the ocean & you are like a wave of that ocean. We all are waves of the same Ocean. There is no higher or lower wave. As the waves and the ocean are one, so are you, part & parcel of God only. One's ego only separates one from the God. Just lose your ego & dive yourself in the ocean of Universal Soul.

When a fire is burning, many sparks come out it. Similarly, all these souls have come out from that Universal Soul. "Mundaka Upanisad" explains that only:

"tat etat satyam yatha su-diptat pavakad
visphulingah sahasrasah prabhavante
sa-rupah tathaksharad vividhah saumya
bhavah prajayante tatra caivapi yanti"

The Supreme God is real and eternal. As many thousands of sparks come from a blazing fire, so many different living entities are manifested from the imperishable Supreme God and then again go & merge into Him.

In Bhagwat Gita also God says that this whole world & it's people are nothing else but part & parcel of Him only. Just like clusters of Yarn-Beads are woven on a thread, so is this whole world threaded in Him. So You are nothing but a "Spark of the Divine".

"mattah parataram nanyat
kincid asti dhananjaya
mayi sarvam idam protam
sutre mani-gana iva" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Seven verse 7)

"Sri Krishna said:

There is nothing else besides Me,
Like clusters of Yarn-Beads,
Formed by knots on a thread,
All this world is threaded on Me (universal soul)."

So let's worship that Supreme Power who is ruling this Universe, someone who is all powerful, Infinite in size. One who is all knowledge, one who is imperishable & indestructible.


Jai Shri Krishna

In Your Life, Whatever Happens, is for the Good only

In India, whenever, you go to any old grocery shop, you invariably find hanging a calendar of "Gita Saar" or "गीता सार" over there. Same wall hanging or a calendar is found, in most of the traditional Hindu shops & houses in India. In this "Gita Saar" is written the brief essence of the Philosophy of "Bhagwat Gita". It is generally written in Hindi language & starts with:

"जो हुआ अच्छा हुआ, जो हो रहा है अच्छा हो रहा है, जो होगा अच्छा होगा। जो बीत गया उस के लिए मत रोवो, जो आने वाला है उस की चिंता मत करो, अपने वर्तमान में धयान लगाओ"

"Whatever happened in the past, it happened for the good; Whatever is happening, is happening for the good; Whatever shall happen in the future, shall happen for the good only. Do not weep for the past, do not worry for the future, concentrate on your present life."

Now basic meaning of these lines is that a supreme power is controlling all this universe on a macro scale & is also controlling the lives of every person on this earth on a micro scale. Whatever good we are doing, Almighty is rewarding us for that & whatever wrong we are doing Almighty is punishing us for that so that we can come back to the right path. In this way Almighty is maintaining the world order in which goodness prevails over evil always & it moves in a positive direction always. Now when something bad happens to us then we think that God is doing something bad for us but in fact He is only doing so in our life for our betterment only. Below story also illustrates that, whatever, happens in our life, always happens for the Good only.

"Once upon the time there was an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.

“All happens for the Good only,” the farmer replied. On hearing this his neighbors were surprised.
The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed.

“All happens for the Good only,” replied the old man.
The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.

“All happens for the Good only,” answered the farmer. On hearing this his neighbors were again surprised.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

“All happens for the Good only,” said the farmer. "
