    The Bhagavadgita stems out of the Indian culture and the Hindu tradition. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace. He has given us both a story to be read and enjoyed, as well as a guidebook for the exploration of Consciousness. Such personages may be an incarnated god or goddess or both if hermaphroditic. Better than knowledge is meditation.

    First, Krishna analytically explains that fighting in His service is transcendental and will bring no sinful reaction. Krishna then describes other processes that eventually lead to His pure devotional service. Krishna ends the chapter by explaining that because lust, anger and greed are the beginnings of demonic life, all sane men should therefore give them up and understand their duty through faithfully following the scriptures. They become desires, then habits, then ways of living with physical consequences. It is a call of action to meet the obligations and duties of life; yet keeping in view the spiritual nature and grander purpose of the universe.

    It combines an accessible, easy style of writing with a rigorous translation by a master of the Sanskrit language and also includes the original Sanskrit text itself, for those with the ability to follow along and to come to their own conclusions regarding its meaning and import. Thus, the soul can end his transmigrations and return to Him in the spiritual world. Their security is unaffected by the results of their action; even while acting, they really do nothing at all. Arjuna then points out the main difficulty in practicing yoga is controlling the mind. It is the true yoga.

Notes and Index to the Bhagavad Gita 1916 book

Those who are inclined to productive application of arts, skills and knowledge, prefer the "karma path". Within the context of Hinduism, a vast and rather complex religion, one principle that operates is that the divine can manifest in and as people. This famous verse contains the essential principle of disinterestedness or detachment.

In the latter years of his life, Yogananda began to train another monastic disciple, Mrinalini Mata. For example, the section Share this:.

In Chapter Sixteen, after mentioning twenty-six godly qualities, Krishna explains the demoniac nature which degrades the soul through arrogant, ignorant, and conceited pursuits of sense gratification and power. Those mahatmas who know Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead take shelter of Him and serve Him as the only enjoyer and the supreme object of worship.

The BHAGAVAD

Yogananda unravels layer upon layer of complexity. By understanding the difference between the body, the soul, and the Supersoul and by following the process of knowledge, the soul can transcend the good and the bad he meets, realize his eternal subordination to Krishna, and attain the supreme destination.

Some editions include commentaries and pictures along with the text. Krishna replies in verses of sublime instruction on living and dying, loving and working, and the nature of the soul. Arjuna has lost his way on the battlefield of life, and turns to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, the Lord himself.

Chapter Eight begins by Arjuna asking Krishna about Brahmam, karma, the demigods, the material world, and knowing Krishna at the time of death. Thus Arjuna can fully worship Krishna, as described at the end of Chapter Six, and think of Him with devotion as he fights.

Krishna continues explaining that although independent and aloof, He pervades, creates and anihilates the entire cosmos through His material energy.

It is the true inner poise samatvam and self-mastery. All the tracks are excellent, including the Maha Mritunjaya Mantra. They become desires, then habits, then ways of living with physical consequences. The Thirteenth Chapter clearly explained that by humbly developing knowledge one can become free from material entanglement.

When seekers reaches this stage, they engage in a life of monkhood, enabling them to contemplate upon the nature of the aatmaa, the self, and remain devoted to that knowledge, which is known as jnyaana nishthaa, the final stage in the spiritual journey.

Krishna also covers Himself from the impersonalists, who are less intelligent, and from those who surrender to the demigods. The spiritual path to the liberated state of bliss is to do the best one is able to while being detached to outcomes, to fruits, to success or failure. This section contains words approx.

Yogananda shows how all the various teachings of Yoga — from Samkhya and Patanjali 's ashtanga yoga to karma, bhakti, jnana, and advaita — are embedded in the Gita in often cryptic ways.

The Bhagavad Gita

Thus the limitations imposed by his field of activities can be overthrown and the soul can be elevated to the Brahman platform, the constitutional position of purity and happiness — a platform of which Krishna is the basis.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this work to all yoga students who want to experience the true pulse of the Bhagavad Gita and be pulled into its sphere of influence through the luminous words of one of this century's great yoga masters.

To help him with the editorial work of preparing this in book form, Yogananda relied on Tara Mata Laurie V.

Miller notes that Yogananda identifies the psychological components symbolized by various characters in the Bhagavad Gita such as Yuyudhana divine devotionChekitana spiritual memoryDrupada dispassionKuntibhoja right postureKashiraja discriminative intelligenceKripa individual delusionBhishma egoKarna attachmentand Ashvatthaman desire ; in addition, these characters also represent movements within the various bodies of consciousness, including the koshasthe chakrasthe bodily energies, and the five elementsplus the different sensory functions and bodily activities.

Got this version, because wanted some background info, otherwise specific terms and phrases are impossible to understand. Better than knowledge is meditation.

Arjuna opens Chapter Thirteen by inquiring about the field of activities and the knower of that field. He then analyzed the three factors that compel us to act : knowledge, action and the sense of doership.

After Arjuna has been impressed with the importance of both work which requires activity and seeking knowledge which tends to be inactiveArjuna is perplexed.
