PURE CONSCIOUSNESS

Image
PURE CONSCIOUSNESS Here God Krishna is saying to Arjuna that to be in pure transcendental consciousness, a person must give up all the varieties of sense gratifications which arise from the engagement of senses as per urges of satisfaction of gratifications on the direction of mind which is not stable, fickle and wandering here and there and which is the friend and enemy of a person.  The mind is our friend if we can control it and the mind is our enemy if we allow ourselves to be controlled by it. These urges for the satisfaction of material sense gratification arise because of the tendency of mental concoction in us which make us believe something which is not true.  It is just like if we add different ingredients in a new way to make some new meal. Our mind creates a mental concoction as it picks some part of the story from somewhere and remaining parts from some other stories and presents a new picture in front of us which appears to be astonishing but in reality, the new pic

Donation of money and liberation

Image
Donation of money and liberation Some people who are filled with false pride and proprietorship claim that they donate a good amount of money to God Shri Krishna. They fail to understand that the money which they claim as their money is given to them by God Shri Krishna as mercy towards them and God Shri Krishna is the proprietor of all the wealth of this universe. God Shri Krishna is the lord of all the wealth of this universe then how can you donate money to God Shri Krishna? The matter of fact is that you depend entirely on God Shri Krishna for your livelihood and subsistence. Without God's blessing, you can not even earn bread for yourself and your family. Donating money to Krishna temple or any movement working for Krishna consciousness can earn you good karma which will make your life comfortable in this birth or future births but it will not liberate you from the cycle of birth and death. If you donate with intention of material gain then you are bound to suffer or enjoy as

One's prescribed duty

Image
  One's prescribed duty. Please go through following texts of book "Bhagavad Gita as it is". Text 47 Chapter 18 It is better to engage in one’s occupation, even though one may perform it imperfectly, than to accept another’s occupation and perform it perfectly. Duties prescribed according to one’s   nature are never affected by sinful reactions. Text 48 Chapter 18 Every endeavour is covered by some fault, just as fire is covered by smoke. Therefore one should not give up the work born of his nature, O son of Kunti, even if such work is full of fault. Text 35 Chapter 3 It is far better to discharge one’s prescribed duties, even though faultily, than another’s duties perfectly. Destruction in the course of performing one’s duty is better than engaging in another’s duties, for to follow another’s path is dangerous. It is better to remain engaged in your prescribed duties rather than accepting another's duties due to the attraction of fame or power or to get

How Bhagavad Gita help us to control anger

How Bhagavad Gita help us to control anger ? Bg.   2.62 book : Bhagavad Gta as it is While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. Bg.2.63 book : Bhagavad Gita as it is From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the material pool. Bg.16.21 book Bhagavad- Gita as it is. There are three gates leading to this hell – lust, anger and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul. We conclude that contemplating on sense objects is the main reason of anger. We have to stop contemplating on sense objects. We have to engage our senses in the service of God Shri Krishna or else they will drag us down to hell through one of its gate called Anger which degrade our soul and keep us in mode of ignorance and  pro

Where does lord Vishnu lives?

 Where does Lord Vishnu live? God Shri Krishna lives in a spiritual sky called Golok Vrindavan. We have to chant the holy names of God in the form of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra to reach there after our death. HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE. The Supreme Personality of Godhead manifests three features—as Karanodakasayi Vishnu, Garbodakasayi Vishnu and Kasirodakasayi Vishnu—in this material manifestation. The Maha Vishnu or Karanodakasayi, the Supreme Lord, is described as, the cause of all causes, lies down in the cosmic ocean as Maha Vishnu. Therefore the Supreme Personality of Godhead is the beginning, maintainer, end of the universal manifestations. Garbodakasayi Vishnu enters into various universes created by Karanodakasayi Vishnu to create various material manifestations and Kasirodakasayi Vishnu enters into each living entity, the universe, and atom as super soul. The ultimate goal of each living entity is to Know the S

Qualifications for becoming dear to Krishna

Qualifications for becoming dear to Krishna. There is clear instruction from God Shri Krishna in Bhagavad-Gita that  supreme spiritual knowledge of Bhagavad- Gita should not be given to those who are rigid, harsh, undevoted or not engaged in devotional service, unfaithful to God Shri Krishna and envy him.  This supreme knowledge is only for devotees of God Shri Krishna. Those who explain this knowledge to devotees are very much dear to God Shri Krishna and after death will go to abode of God Shri Krishna. Those who read Bhagavad Gita will worship God Shri Krishna by their intelligence. Those who listen Bhagavad Gita with faith and without envy will become free from sinful reactions and will go to auspicious planets of pious beings after death. Person who does not lose equilibrium in heat and cold, distress and happiness, fame and infamy, honour or dishonour and who is fearless and without any cares and pain.
