bhagavad gītā introduction vedabase

Designations and attachments are due to our lust and desire, our wanting to lord it over the material nature. The Lord further adds that of this “there is no doubt.” This must be believed firmly. Is it not six? One has father, but it may be that he has forgotten his father. People with less intelligence consider the Supreme Truth to be impersonal, but He is a transcendental person, and this is confirmed in all Vedic literatures. In theater, in stage, in..., at home, at club—everywhere. One should desire and hanker after that supreme kingdom, for when one attains that kingdom, he does not have to return to this material world. The Supreme Being is sac-cid-ānanda-vigraha – that is, His form is eternal, full of knowledge and bliss. Prabhupāda: You do not know that? Sarvam etad ṛtaṁ manye: “I accept everything You say to be true.” Arjuna also says that the personality of the Lord is very difficult to understand and that He cannot be known even by the great demigods. Just like your relationship with somebody as father and son, it is established. The purpose of Bhagavad-gītā is to deliver mankind from the nescience of material existence. They are transcendental to the three modes of nature. From Bhagavad-gītā we must learn what God is, what the living entities are, what prakṛti is, what the cosmic manifestation is, how it is controlled by time, and what the activities of the living entities are. Vyāsa5. We should not reject that which does not tally with our imagination; our attitude should be that of Arjuna: “I believe everything that You have said.” Therefore when the Lord says that at the time of death whoever thinks of Him as Brahman or Paramātmā or as the Personality of Godhead certainly enters into the spiritual sky, there is no doubt about it. So we have explained this Bhagavad-gītā in the paramparā system as we have heard from authoritative sources. Sometimes you might have seen—not here; in India we have seen several times—that exactly as vast water, and it is reflecting, the reflection. This is also explained in Bhagavad-gītā. Material consciousness has two psychic divisions. There is no difference, because Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa’s name are nondifferent. Now one may think that because Kṛṣṇa was the friend of Arjuna, Arjuna was telling Him all this by way of flattery, but Arjuna, just to drive out this kind of doubt from the minds of the readers of Bhagavad-gītā, substantiates these praises in the next verse when he says that Kṛṣṇa is accepted as the Supreme Personality of Godhead not only by himself but by authorities like Nārada, Asita, Devala and Vyāsadeva. In the Vedic literature we can receive much information about all the planets, and we can believe it or not believe it. Therefore Arjuna tells Kṛṣṇa that he accepts whatever He says to be completely perfect. We are acting at the present moment under material energy, because our body is made of material energy. Just like we are accustomed to give some service to some person who is greater than me. "Of course, there are many translations, but of those I have seen, not only in America but those also in India, none can be said to be authoritative, because in almost every one of them the author has expressed his personal opinion through the commentaries without touching the spirit of the Bhagavad-gītā as it is. Similarly, in every field of life we enjoy the results of our work, or we suffer the results. Out of these five basic subject matters in Bhagavad-gītā it is established that the Supreme Godhead, or Kṛṣṇa, or Brahman, or the supreme controller, or Paramātmā – you may use whatever name you like – is the greatest of all. Samaḥ sarveṣu bhūteṣu. Prabhupāda: That is covered. In the Viṣṇu Purāṇa (6.7.61) the total energies of the Supreme Lord are delineated: The Supreme Lord has diverse and innumerable energies which are beyond our conception; however, great learned sages or liberated souls have studied these energies and have analyzed them into three parts. Material nature is not independent. The branches go downward and the roots upward. One is thunderstruck with the greatness of God. Thus the Bhagavad-gītā was explained to him. Padmanābha7. We are trying to control nature, as presently we are trying to control space or planets, and this tendency to control is there because it is in Kṛṣṇa. First of all he makes a determination to act in a certain way, and then he is entangled in the actions and reactions of his own karma. Unless one is awakened to this position of questioning his suffering, unless he realizes that he doesn’t want suffering but rather wants to make a solution to all suffering, then one is not to be considered a perfect human being. So this is the principle of understanding Bhagavad-gītā. That is Kṛṣṇa consciousness. I am trying to find some relationship with particular type of society, particular type of community, particular type of nation, particular type of family or individuals. But we have to develop that sense of love. ". No. Just challenge these persons, "What right you have got?" Fragment, very small fragment. Arjuna, for instance, was always thinking of Kṛṣṇa; he was the constant companion of Kṛṣṇa, and at the same time he was a warrior. And people may misunderstand; therefore he has specifically mentioned Kṛṣṇa who has appeared as the son of Devakī and Vasudeva. All Vedic knowledge is infallible, and Hindus accept Vedic knowledge to be complete and infallible. You are also energy; you are marginal energy. But this, what is this Bhagavad-gītā? There is no doubt about it. Therefore at the end of life the transcendentalists think either of the brahma-jyotir, the Paramātmā or the Supreme Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Just like there are a section of people in your country, they have seen enough of this material affair, happiness, or they are searching after something, wrongly. There are three classes of transcendentalists, namely the jñānī, the yogī and the bhakta, or the impersonalist, the meditator and the devotee. The brāhmaṇa class or intelligent class is working in one way, the kṣatriya or administrative class is working in another way, and the mercantile class and the laborers are all tending to their specific duties. You will read? I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Of course the word bhagavān sometimes refers to any powerful person or any powerful demigod, and certainly here bhagavān designates Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa as a great personality, but at the same time we should know that Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as is confirmed by all great ācāryas (spiritual masters) like Śaṅkarācārya, Rāmānujācārya, Madhvācārya, Nimbārka Svāmī, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and many other authorities of Vedic knowledge in India. Lord Caitanya also advises this. And when you are under spiritual energy, that is your life of freedom. When He manifests this form, there is no need for our imagining what He looks like. By doing so, the living entity enjoys life. That is also śakti. Govindam ādi-puruṣaṁ tam ahaṁ bhajāmi. [“‘Kṛṣṇa is the origin of Lord Viṣṇu. All of these taken completely form the complete whole, and the complete whole is called the Supreme Absolute Truth. He, just like Lord Caitanya began His propaganda from Bengal, Lord Buddha made His propaganda from Bihar. So the Bhagavad-gītā (8.6) says: “Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his present body, in his next life he will attain to that state without fail.”. But the platform is there, sense gratification. And what right he has got? His manner of acceptance is given in the Tenth Chapter (10.12–14): “Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the ultimate abode, the purest, the Absolute Truth. Worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. So you are speaking of Bhagavad-gītā and cheating people.". They used to..., they had to fight with the opponents. Therefore they took shelter in China, Japan, Burma. Just see His wisdom. A serves B master, B serves C master, and C serves D master and so on. This vastraṇaṁ-līlā was that Kṛṣṇa stealthily went there and took up all their clothes and got up on a tree, [laughter] [laughs] with the clothings. Madhva6. That's all. Marginal energy means you may be under the control of the spiritual energy or you may be under the control of material energy—your marginal position. So this instruction you will find in the Ninth Chapter, man-manā bhava mad-bhaktaḥ [Bg. This material world has been approximated as only one quarter of the creation (ekāṁśena sthito jagat). There are so many literatures which fill our thoughts with the material energy – newspapers, magazines, novels, etc. Kṛṣṇadāsa26. And the next development is to render service to God as parents. In this material world we find that everything is temporary. Every living being is Brahman, or spirit, but the supreme living being is the Supreme Brahman.". This is the whole sum and substance of purified consciousness. And jñānī means when they are confused. Devotee: "Arjuna was a devotee in relationship with the Lord as a friend. But the Lord, being the Supreme, is never affected. The old succession is broken. No. Rājendra15. The one energy, spiritual energy, is in our normal condition, and material energy in..., is our abnormal condition. “Arjuna said: O Madhusūdana, the system of yoga which You have summarized appears impractical and unendurable to me, for the mind is restless and unsteady.” (Bg. Give us our clothes. Do not fear.” Thus the Lord takes all responsibility for one who surrenders unto Him, and He indemnifies such a person against all reactions of sins. But in the course of time it has become lost. If the master is fully satisfied, then the servant is satisfied. So one who has understood this truth, that God is father, he no more looks, "Ah, this is cat," "This is dog," "This is cow," "This is black," "This is white," "This is Chinese," "This is American." So far richness is concerned, He exhibited His richness—which is dream now. I offer my respectful obeisances to Lord Kṛṣṇa Caitanya and Lord Nityānanda along with Advaita Ācārya, Gadādhara, Śrīvāsa and other associates. In the material world there is no water, there is no happiness, but the real water of actual happiness is there in the spiritual world. And Bhagavad-gītā is transcendental—neither on the mental plane nor on the bodily plane. The devotee, who wants to enjoy the association of the Lord, enters into the Vaikuṇṭha planets, which are innumerable, and the Supreme Lord by His plenary expansions as Nārāyaṇa with four hands and with different names like Pradyumna, Aniruddha and Govinda associates with him there. This is called surrender, that "I have tried to satisfy my..., the whims of my senses so many lives. So it may be a new contribution to your country, because in every edition they have concocted some ideas about Bhagavad-gītā, but we are presenting Bhagavad-gītā as it is. That is the difference between the Supreme Lord and the small individual souls. [laughter] [laughs] But according to his work, he will be forced to accept. This is explained in Bhagavad-gītā. By the process of devotional service, one can revive that svarūpa, and that stage is called svarūpa-siddhi – perfection of one’s constitutional position. Outside India. So we see that Bhagavad-gītā is instructed to Arjuna especially because Arjuna was a devotee of the Lord, a direct student of Kṛṣṇa, and His intimate friend. Read on. That destination is called the sanātana sky, the eternal, spiritual sky (yad gatvā na nivartante tad dhāma paramaṁ mama). We conclude that there is heat and light along with the fire; without heat and light, there is no meaning to the word fire. Lord Buddha, He was Indian. Just like a person is always under the control of government as citizen. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master and unto the feet of all Vaiṣṇavas. So we are realizing by meditation, "I am God, you are God, my brother is God, my father is God, my these are God, everyone is God." So far we are concerned, Vaiṣṇavas, we accept. Similarly, we must discover the essential part of the living being, that part which is his constant companion. "God is great." 18.66]. Unless one reads the Bhagavad-gītā in a submissive spirit, it is very difficult to understand Bhagavad-gītā, because it is a great mystery. Just like king, Mahārāja Bharata, under whose name India is called Bhārata-varṣa. The stomach is the enjoyer. Prabhupāda: The passive relationship is simply realizing, "Oh, how God is great." In Bible, in Koran also. This mahat-tattva, this material world, just like a child, a child is born, the father gives the seed and mother develops the body. So Vedic knowledge is complete because it is above all doubts and mistakes, and Bhagavad-gītā is the essence of all Vedic knowledge. We are trying with difficulty to reach other planets, but it is not difficult to understand the abode of the Supreme Lord. “Of all yogīs, the one with great faith who always abides in Me, thinks of Me within himself, and renders transcendental loving service to Me is the most intimately united with Me in yoga and is the highest of all. He married 16,108 wives, and each wife had a palace, and the palace did not require light; it was bedecked with valuable jewels, so at night the light from the jewels will illuminate the rooms. Every man is in difficulty in so many ways, as Arjuna also was in difficulty in having to fight the Battle of Kurukṣetra. Therefore Bhagavad-gītā is best understood by a person who has qualities similar to Arjuna’s. Just like children are taught A-B-C-D, or first book of knowledge. Artificially he may deny, but he will be forced. Originally I wrote Bhagavad-gītā As It Is in the form in which it is presented now.When this book was first published, the original manuscript was, unfortunately, cut short to less than 400 pages, without illustrations and without explanations for most of the original verses of the Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā. It is the essence of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upanisads in Vedic literature. What does this mean? Anyway, that is..., that was the system in the bygone ages, even one thousand years ago. So Kṛṣṇa's opulence, beauty, strength, and so far wisdom, at least you can test. Similarly, the eternal function of the eternal living entity cannot be taken from the living entity. You have satisfied your senses in so many forms of life, huh? The child can forget his father, but he cannot forget his mother. The complete whole is not formless. Most of the creation is in the spiritual sky. Every living being is Brahman, but the supreme living being, or the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is the Supreme Brahman. Of course, there is no difference between the mouth and the feet of the Supreme Lord, but from an impartial study we can appreciate that Bhagavad-gītā is even more important than the water of the Ganges. Therefore His philosophy was considered atheism. That is to say he must be a devotee in a direct relationship with the Lord. [Bengali] Here is a light. The wonderful land. He has to. You don't desire to become one's son; you are already one's son. So He was so beautiful that they, all the gopīs prayed to Yogamāyā. He is said by sages to be a worker for whom the reactions of work have been burned up by the fire of perfect knowledge. Apareyam itas tv anyāṁ prakṛtiṁ viddhi me parām/ jīva-bhūtām: “This material nature is My inferior prakṛti, but beyond this is another prakṛti – jīva-bhūtām, the living entities.”. You are the daughter of King Vṛṣabhānu, and You are very dear to Lord Kṛṣṇa. That is not accepted in Vedas. Just what is the Bhagavad-gītā? So the Lord is not materially contaminated. So Bhagavad-gītā contains the complete knowledge of Vedic wisdom. In this chapter, Lord Krishna delivers a stern talk … And the materialist also, they are also accepting another energy. All the rules and prohibitions mentioned in the śāstras should be the servants of these two principles.’]. "Why unto me, Kṛṣṇa?" They are trying to put this water under certain exercise and thinking that they are elevating themselves in spirit. According to the Gītā, the living entities, although parts and parcels of the Supreme Lord, are to be considered prakṛti. In conclusion, Bhagavad-gītā is a transcendental literature which one should read very carefully. This is confirmed by all the ...". Bhagavad-gītā is the widely read theistic science summarized in the Gītā-māhātmya (Glorification of the Gītā). They are called bona fide. The Lord resides eternally in His abode Goloka, yet He can be approached from this world, and to this end the Lord comes to manifest His real form, sac-cid-ānanda-vigraha. The earth belongs to the middle planetary system. The relation is also like that of the master and the servant. You will have to wait for that. Bhagavad-Gītā As It Is may be considered the formal introduction to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. A perfect devotee sees the light, not the light as it is, but he sees some relationship with Kṛṣṇa or Kṛṣṇa in the light. Lord Buddha, Lord Buddha was prince, but very young boy, at the age of twenty years or something like that, he gave up everything, his father's kingdom. "Let me go to the club, let me go to the stage, let me go to this Florida beach, and let me go there, let me see the naked dance, let me see that, let me..." That's all. That is Kṛṣṇa consciousness. You might have left your home since a very, very long time, and you do not know who is your father. Śakta, the word comes from śakti. Therefore those who begin to question why they are suffering or where they came from and where they shall go after death are proper students for understanding Bhagavad-gītā. You cannot manufacture any religious principle. "I don't want." What is this consciousness? What is material nature? Sanātana-dharma is eternally integral with the living entity. The total population of Vṛndāvana knew nothing but Kṛṣṇa. Prabhupāda: That is the instruction in the Bhagavad-gītā, that this science of Bhagavad-gītā has to be accepted by disciplic succession. We have to receive knowledge from the proper source in disciplic succession beginning with the supreme spiritual master, the Lord Himself, and handed down to a succession of spiritual masters. This is fact. Rather, our activities are to be purified, and purified activities are called bhakti. So how can a human being understand Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa without becoming His devotee? That is the process. Being an associate of Lord Kṛṣṇa, Arjuna was above all ignorance, but Arjuna was put into ignorance on the Battlefield of Kurukṣetra just to question Lord Kṛṣṇa about the problems of life so that the Lord could explain them for the benefit of future generations of human beings and chalk out the plan of life. Therefore we have to practice remembering the Lord always, twenty-four hours a day, by chanting His names and molding our life’s activities in such a way that we can remember Him always. That's all. “This Gītopaniṣad, Bhagavad-gītā, the essence of all the Upaniṣads, is just like a cow, and Lord Kṛṣṇa, who is famous as a cowherd boy, is milking this cow. If the fingers of the hand think that they should take the food themselves instead of giving it to the stomach, then they will be frustrated. Dhyānāvasthita manasā paśyanti yaṁ yoginaḥ [SB 12.13.1]. That is called mirage. The other prakṛti is not conscious. So the so-called Transcendental Meditation they are discussing on the mind. Games. Of course there are many commentaries in English on the Bhagavad-gītā, and one may question the necessity for another one. It is clearly stated how Bhagavad-gītā should be accepted. That was vastraṇaṁ-līlā. But real father is God. “Govinda, Kṛṣṇa, is the cause of all causes. It is not possible. Factually we are related to the Supreme Lord in service. Nonsense. No. So bring all the books which is..., which are published in your country and find out a single man who is a Kṛṣṇa's devotee. To learn the Bhagavad-gītā one should be like Arjuna, a devotee having a direct relationship with the Lord. All of the important planets are described in the Vedic literatures, especially Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, and the spiritual world, which is beyond this material sky, is described as avyakta, unmanifested. Prabhupāda: Now here is another point, that everyone is reading Bhagavad-gītā. If one has fifty years of life ahead of him, he should engage that brief time in cultivating this practice of remembering the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Similarly, there are three kinds of eatables also: eatables in goodness, passion and ignorance. This vision makes one advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. That we have now forgotten. The other day while I was walking, I saw one advertisement of tourist agent: India's pictures can—wonderful land. And the Bhagavad-gītā, mind is immediately rejected as matter. Muktir hitvānyathā-rūpaṁ svarūpeṇa vyavasthitiḥ: mukti means liberation from the contaminated consciousness of this material world and situation in pure consciousness. He said himself that "I am son of God." That is the difference. He has no right. Does it mean that sense satisfaction in an apartment and sense satisfaction in the club is different? There is sufficient power. We are temporarily engaged in different activities, but all of these activities can be purified when we give up all these temporary activities and take up the activities which are prescribed by the Supreme Lord. His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, Founder-Ācārya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. That is explained. They are called jñānī, man of knowledge. One need only attentively and regularly hear and read Bhagavad-gītā. The Gītā should be taken as the most perfect presentation of Vedic knowledge. You will be happy. Our present body is not sac-cid-ānanda. Thus you will come to Me without fail. The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and … Similarly, the same principle as Śaṅkarācārya has followed. And he was fighting for kingdom. It is simply poking your nose in other's business. Whatever religion and process of elevation of life we have manufactured, they can be grouped in two ways: mental and bodily.
