Essence of BHAGVAD GITA

I am so excited that my blog has got 30000 hits and I am so happy that the great milestone happened on Mother’s Day (12th May’2013)… Thanks to one & all for the support.

Bhagvad Gita 

I used to take the excerpts from anything which is relevant to emphasize my content. In the recent days it was more on Islam and I don’t have any discrimination in religion, as long as we follow the righteous things I am a human and I am not worried whether it is for Muslims, Christians or for Hindus. Anything means for the righteous deeds are from my religion. The basic essence of the content will be towards righteous and how to live the life in all the religion.

Couple of days back, one of my friend asked me have you read Gita, Yes I have read it. She told me, one of my friend was in great trouble and he read that and he got transformed in a different way. I was working on the 3 mistakes of my life and I tried to include in that about my faith in Bhagvad Gita, but later I felt that I have to write more on Gita, then showing it an extracts.

To great extent it is true that we get transformed. If we try to take the essence of any righteous things, then our life gets transformed from the worldly life and it gets to a different level in life towards the Paramatma. Only when we understand the what is Atma and Parmatma, we will know our journey towards the paramatma.

What does Bhagvad Gita says

The Bhagavad Gita – It will excite the mind and make it bloom spiritually in our life. Any person can find guidance in its chapters of Karma, Bhakti and Gnyanam. It shows the way for enlightenment after one’s mind is purified by devotion and karma.

Once the mind has been purified, the sensual desires and anger are greatly reduced. Kama or sensual desire is responsible for the cycle of births. One who discards Kama and Krodha, achieve the highest bliss on this earth and after.

Those who have controlled the senses and have clear vision against the narrow-mindedness will not covet even on their impoverishment.

I wanted to include the below in my previous post, as I want to explore Bhagvad Gita, I felt I will start with the content which I want to share it with my SAD.

In Mahabharata, the epic of India, comes as a speech where the wise minister Vidura advises the King Yudhishtra thus, “Listening to wise scriptures, austerity, sacrifice, respectful faith, social welfare, forgiveness, purity of intent, compassion, truth and self-control – are the ten wealth of character (self). O king aim for these, may you be steadfast in these qualities.These are the basis of prosperity and rightful living. These are highest attainable things. All worlds are balanced on Dharma, dharma encompasses ways to prosperity as well. O King, Dharma is the best quality to have, wealth the medium and desire (kāma) the lowest. 

Hence, (keeping these in mind), by self-control and by making dharma (right conduct) your main focus, treat others as you treat yourself.”

In Islam, From the Qur’an: the first verse recommends the positive form of the rule, and the subsequent verses condemn not abiding the negative form of the Golden Rule:
“…and you should forgive And overlook: Do you not like God to forgive you? And Allah is The Merciful Forgiving.” Qur’an (Surah 24, “The Light,” v. 22)

“Woe to those… who, when they have to receive by measure from men, they demand exact full measure, but when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due” — Qur’an (Surah 83, “The Dealers in Fraud,” vv. 1–4)

From the hadith, the collected oral and written accounts of Muhammad (S.A.W)and his teachings during his lifetime:
A Bedouin came to the prophet, grabbed the stirrup of his camel and said: O the messenger of God! Teach me something to go to heaven with it. Prophet said: “As you would have people do to you, do to them; and what you dislike to be done to you, don’t do to them. Now let the stirrup go! [This maxim is enough for you; go and act in accordance with it!]” —Kitab al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 146

“None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.” —An-Nawawi’s Forty Hadith 13 (p. 56)
“Seek for mankind that of which you are desirous for yourself, that you may be a believer.” —Sukhanan-i-Muhammad (Teheran, 1938)

“That which you want for yourself, seek for mankind.” “The most righteous person is the one who consents for other people what he consents for himself, and who dislikes for them what he dislikes for himself.”  Ali ibn Abi Talib (4th Caliph in Sunni Islam, and first Imam in Shia Islam) says:

“O’ my child, make yourself the measure (for dealings) between you and others. Thus, you should desire for others what you desire for yourself and hate for others what you hate for yourself. Do not oppress as you do not like to be oppressed. Do good to others as you would like good to be done to you. Regard bad for yourself whatever you regard bad for others. Accept that (treatment) from others which you would like others to accept from you… Do not say to others what you do not like to be said to you.” —Nahjul Balaghah, Letter 3

I will continue more only on Gita……..
