Start reading Bhagavad Gita daily in 5 min. Sat, 22 Sep 2012 14:21:04 -0400 knp45 1890@/discussions
By reading Bhagavad Gita we become dearest devotees of Lord Krishna. HE has promised in Gita that HE is always ready to take care of HIS devotees in every respect. Accumulation of sins is the main reason for our sufferings and we will be put in hells after death. Reading Gita clears our sins and sufferings and we get good lokas after death, even a place in the Lotus feet of Lord Krishna i.e., salvation. So, reading Bhagavad Gita daily is essential for all of us. Bhagavad gita is a boon to us bestowed by Lord Krishna, the ocean of mercy. Let us read it, take all the benefits of it and cross the world of miseries easily by HIS grace.

I am beginning to feel that I am not being affected by adverse weather as much I used to and it is such a good feeling.
The curve of alternate happiness and pain too is getting straighter.
All because of the Lord.
I am so much in love. Love with Him.

The Song of God, Bhagavad-gita as it is.

1972 Version, Unedited and Original.

I am sure everybody will like this ebook.
Like I said it's clean and easy to see.
And you can navigate with amazing ease.

If you would like the site for this download it is here,
and in case you want to pass this Link to other devotee
or those interested in Krsna Consciousness:
[Hopefully it will stay around for a while]

This is unlike anything I did before, it is just one file.
And you can create shortcuts to it. So it won't take
up any space, it's a bona-fide Ebook.

I request devotee to upload this to their site as
this site can go down any time, and who can say?

So please try to put on your own site not because
of bandwidth but that it 'could' go down anytime.
Which has been my experience, thankyou.

Jaya Prabhupada! Nitai-Gauranga!

Shrimad bhagvad the easiest route to salvation Thu, 12 Mar 2009 06:42:37 -0400 ADIT 1849@/discussions Shri parikshit ji (grandson o the great devotee arjun) attained salvation just by hearing the great shrimad bhagvad

this great book is not just a wonderful source of knowlege but the supreme lord himself.

It is said that once lord brahma weighed the shrimad bhagvad in a balance
on one side he kept the results of all the pious activities,chanting,etc...
And on one side he kept the shrimad bhagvad itself.

The result----

the shrimad bhagvad was heavier.. He concluded that shrimad bhagvad was the spiritual lord himself

so we all must devote atleast some time from our daily routine to hear the wonderful and spiritual pastime o the lord.....]]>
Gita says that nobody understands God even after hearing lot Mon, 31 Mar 2008 04:03:06 -0400 sridatta1 1737@/discussions Gita says that nobody understands God even after hearing lot about God
163. Anuhyataiva gitamaashcharyam.

Translation: The surprise that is mentioned in Gita is nothing but the unimaginable nature of the God.
Explanation: In Gita it is said that one sees God with surprise, one hears about God with surprise and one speaks about God with surprise. Finally Gita says that nobody understands God even after hearing lot about God (Aashcharyavat…). The surprise mentioned about all aspects of God indicates just the unimaginable nature of God. There is no surprise if the concept is understood. When any point is not understood, then only the surprise arises.]]>
Gita gives a lower position to the sacrifice of material tha Mon, 31 Mar 2008 04:01:50 -0400 sridatta1 1733@/discussions Gita gives a lower position to the sacrifice of material than the place of knowledge
167. Bhraantadrushtadravyayajnaniraaso gitah shruta eva.

Translation: The twisted sacrifice of material as seen today was rejected by Gita and in real sense it is in the path of Veda only.

Explanation: Veda deals with this karma or work involving the sacrifice of material or fruit of work in elaborate manner. Almost all the Veda gives stress on work and sacrifice of material only (Dravyayajna). But Gita gives a lower position to the sacrifice of material than the place of knowledge (Shreyaan dravyamayaat…). Therefore, there is a contradiction between Veda and Gita. This contradiction can be removed by understanding the position of Dravyayajna in the time of Gita, which is almost the beginning of Kali age. The sacrifice of material was misunderstood by the ignorant priests as seen today. The priests sacrifice the material in to physical fire without knowing the actual meaning of the word fire. Fire means Satguru, who is the human form of the God. Due to lack of proper knowledge of the word fire, the sacrifice of material is twisted and became wastage of material. In this context of the twisted sense of Drayayajna, the Lord condemned such foolish wastage of material and advised to give importance to knowledge so that the proper sense of the sacrifice should be understood first before its practice. Therefore, there is no contradiction between Veda and Gita in the real sense of sacrifice (Yajna). In fact, Gita stressed a lot on the sacrifice of work and material (fruit of work) everywhere as karma yoga.]]>
In Gita it is said that ‘No work binds Me’, What is the mean Fri, 11 Jan 2008 17:22:38 -0500 sridatta1 1646@/discussions In Gita it is said that ‘No work binds Me’, What is the meaning of this?

God do not aspire for any fruit. He does not have any selfish aspiration. Therefore He need not do any selfish work. Here karma means the work done to achieve selfish goals. That will not touch Him and that cannot bind Him. He will not be bound by the work for achieving the selfish goals. Because He does not have any selfishness, there is nothing for Him to achieve for Himself. Work means work done to achieve a selfish goal. Unselfish work will not bind. Always a fellow is bound limited by selfish work only. Unselfish work never binds. Suppose you are going to do a job, this is my job, I have to maintain my family etc, with these attitude one goes to work then he gets tension. Suppose you are going to attend the job of your friend, you are not going for your selfishness, you are trying to help some body else, when some problem comes there will no tension for you.

When you do your work, imagine that it is not your work and it is somebody else work you are doing, then you will be relieved from tension. When such is the state, even by assumption you are relieved of tension, and then if you really work for others you will really relieved from tension.]]>
Caitanya Bhagavata - nectar Wed, 01 Feb 2006 07:19:48 -0500 cherry 1100@/discussions
Around this time Sri Isvaracandra Puri came to Navadvipa unobtrusively dressed as an
ekadandi sannyasa. He was a magnanimous personality, always absorbed in tasting the nectar
of love of Krsna. He was extremely dear to Lord Krsna and compassionate towards all. Because
of his humble attire, no one recognised him.
One day Isvara Puri went to Advaita Acarya's house, but the Acarya was quite busy working
at that time. Isvaracandra sat humbly in the courtyard in front of Advaita Prabhu.
A Vaisnava's purity makes him effulgent, so Advaita Acarya Prabhu could immediately
understand that the person sitting in front of him was no ordinary sannyasi.
Advaita stared at Isvara Puri, knowing he must be a pure Vaisnava. At last Acarya Prabhu
addressed him respectfully, "Dear saintly person, who are you? I have the feeling that you
are a Vaisnava sannyasi."
"I am worse than the fourth class person" replied Isvaracandra. "I have come here simply to
see your lotus feet" Mukunda could also recognise the symptoms of a pure Vaisnava devotee,
and there in the courtyard he spontaneously broke into devotional song. At the sound of
Mukunda's voice, Isvara Puri fell to the ground, incessant tears poured from this eyes while
repeated and increasing bursts of devotional ecstasy overcame him.
Advaita Acarya was alarmed and drew Isvaracandra quickly into his arms. Soon he was also
bathed with the saint's tears and they were both swept away by ecstatic waves of love of
God, unable to control their spiritual emotions. Inspired by them Mukunda sang one sloka
after another.]]>

I am delighted to be a new member of this forum. I am a professor of Biology with great love for Srimad Bhagwat Geeta. Geeta as you know comprises 700 shlokas in Sanskrit. Direct reading of Geeta is therefore problematic for people who do not know Sanskrit well. We have to depend upon some one to explain what has been said in different shlokas. Though I belong to New Delhi, I often spend long stretches of time doing research in USA. In one of these stays, in an inspired phase, I did a complete translation of Geeta in to metered Hindi verses. The main feature of this work is that all 700 verses are metered and highly amenable to singing. Moreover, since I have been very careful to convey what the Sanskrit Shlokas say per se, a Hindi knowing reader can read my work and derive his / her own meanings. The work has been presented on my website:

Please visit the site and let me know your kind comments. The site also carries Hindi poems of well known Hindi writers.

Gita Jayanti and Worship of Bhagavad-gita Tue, 06 Dec 2005 14:50:18 -0500 1074@/discussions Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

“The Bhagavad-gita is identical with Krsna; and because Krsna is the Absolute Supreme Personality of Godhead, there is no difference between Krsna and His words. Therefore the Bhagavad-gita is as worshipable as Lord Krsna Himself, both being absolute. One who hears the Bhagavad-gita "as is" actually hears the words directly from the lotus lips of the Lord.” Srila Prabhupada, purport

Gita Jayanti commemorates the day that Lord Krishna spoke Bhagavad-gita to the great warrior and devotee Arjuna. Lord Krishna spoke Bhagavad-gita at the place now known as Jyotisar Tirtha amid the two battling families of the Kurus and the Pandavas at Kurukshetra.

A monument has been erected there depicting Lord Krishna as Parthasarati (chariot driver) and Arjuna the warrior on their chariot. It is said by the ashram that maintains the shrine that the tree that is next to Them is a continum growth of the original tree that was witness at the actual day of speaking.

Gita Jayanti falls on December 11 of this year. Traditionally devotees come to Kurukshetra (Dharmakshetra) on Gita Jayanti and recite Bhagavad Gita from early morning until the next morning, perform arati to Bhagavad-gita and to Krishna and Arjuna upon the chariot. They also listen to discourse throughout the day on the significance of Bhagavad-gita.

Because Bhagavad-gita is non-different from the Supreme Lord Krishna, it is of my most humble opinion that worship of Bhagavad-gita should be a daily event. I have my copy of the original hard-back edition of Bhagavad-gita As It Is sitting on Lord Krishna’s altar. Therefore arati, is performed for Bhagavad-gita each and everyday. Each day we should read Bhagavad-gita even if it is just one verse.

Bhagavad-gita ki jai!

your servant,
Rukmini-Devi dasi
