Ticket to Kingdom of God

TICKET TO KINGDOM OF GODAfter going through Bhagavad Gita’s second chapter, I have come to this conclusion that a summary of the entire “Bhagavad Gita” is in the second chapter. It tells us the qualifications which this soul should possess to get the ticket to the Kingdom of GOD after death.  Here one more thing which is to be remembered is that the moment your soul leaves your body (at the time of death) at that time, what are you thinking matters the most and it decides your next birth. If you are thinking about GOD then your next destination will be the Kingdom of God or you can call abode of God from where the soul never returns to this miserable and dangerous material world.  If your consciousness is towards wife, children, bank balance, costly items at home, Job, girlfriend, or towards your pet or lust, greed, attachment then without any doubt, you will get a body to fulfill your unfulfilled desires for sense gratifications.

Powerful Senses

Powerful Senses
Senses are very powerful in nature. They are so strong that a person who sincerely try to control them with meditation or devotional services, they drift the mind of such person with a strong force to material attachments just like a strong wind try to drift the boat from its direction.

He acquired some supernatural weapons, the knowledge of which was ultimately given by him to God Rama who has incarnated to kill demon king Ravana. He has created a new heaven with his power of meditation to accommodate one of the ancestors of God Rama there. Naturally, Indra the king of …

PURE CONSCIOUSNESS

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 engagement of senses as per urges of satisfaction of gratifications on the direction of mind which is not stable and wandering here and there and which is the friend and enemy of a person. 

Mind is our friend if we can control it and 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 tends 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 picture is far from reality however…
