Bhagavad-Gita As It Is by A. C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada

Bhagavad Gita (Song of God) : Words that came directly through the lips of God.

3 Modes Of Material Nature

3 Modes Of Material Nature

Chapter 7 Text 13

Lord Krishna said

"Deluded by the three modes [goodness, passion and ignorance], the whole world does not know Me who am above the modes and inexhaustible"

The whole world is enchanted by three modes of material nature. Those who are bewildered by these three modes cannot understand that transcendental to this material nature is the Supreme Lord, Kṛṣṇa.

In this material world everyone is under the influence of these three modes and is thus bewildered. By nature living entities have particular types of body and particular types of psychic and biological activities accordingly.

4 Classes Of Men

There are four classes of men functioning in the three material modes of nature. (Goodness,Passion and Ignorance)

Those who are purely in the mode of goodness are called brāhmaṇas(Intellectuals)(Scholars,Priests,Teachers).

Those who are purely in the mode of passion are called kṣatriyas(Administrators)(Rulers,Warriors).

Those who are in the modes of both passion and ignorance are called vaiśyas(mercantile class)(Agriculturalists,Merchants).

Those who are completely in ignorance are called śūdras.(service or labour class)

Our Relationship With God (Part 1)

Our Relationship With God (Part 1)

Constitutional position of the living being is the rendering of service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. If we analyze this statement, we can easily see that every living being is constantly engaged in rendering service to another living being. A living being serves other living beings in various capacities. By doing so, the living entity enjoys life. The lower animals serve human beings as servants serve their master. A serves B master, B serves C master, and C serves D master and so on.

Breaking a habit can be difficult and many people give up on it's difficulty. There is one simple step that you can take to give up any bad habit. The step is gifting it to the universe.

The present

In Gita the lord Krishna says to Arjun to stop worrying about the future and to focus on the task at the hand, which is to focus on the present moment

Still mind

As a lamp in a windless place does not flicker so is the disciplined mind of the yogi practicing concentration on the Self. Supreme bliss comes to the yogi whose mind is completely tranquil and whose passions are quieted, who is free from stain and has become one with Brahman.

BHAGAVAD GITA

Anything you can't control is teaching you how to let go. Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.

These ideas represent ideologies of karmic life based on Bhagavad Gita and how a person can fight back in kalyug through the power of spiritualism.

1. Ishvara (God) -Our Supreme Father

All of us are controlled by someone in our lives. A child is controlled by the teacher at the school and by the parents at home. A man is controlled by the boss at the office. Even the head of the state is also controlled by many factors. Ultimately, everyone is under the strict control of Nature and its laws. One can perceive the unfailing control of Nature over everyone. But even in nature, we see perfect orderliness – seasons come on time; Sun and moon appear and disappear at definite times of the day.Thus, one can further ask, “Who is the ultimate controller of everything?”

it's one of the Best book i've ever read. It is not just a book , it's beyond mind knowledge and ultimately leads to peacefullness. Undoubtedly, every word of Lord Krishna and Arjuna are golden and so truthful even 5000 years later. Its so peaceful to read it. I loved the way of playing with words. Its just beyond anything i've ever read. I do recommend it to everyone, of any religion, caste, age, gender,.. everyone should have this divine knowledge to make world a better place.

What is the Bhagavad-gita?

What is the Bhagavad-gita?

General understanding of the masses is that Bhagavad-gita is a holy book of Hindu religion, an armchair book for the retirement years or an ancient scripture full of philosophical intricacies. All these opinions make the Gita more or less outdated in the modern context. But by learning from the authorized sources, one understands that Bhagavad-gita is much more than this: it is a guide book to lead an enjoyable and blissful life. In other words, it is a user’s manual to lead a meaningful human life.

Lord Krishna imparted this knowledge to Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, when the latter was in a distressful condition. Upon receiving this knowledge returned to his happy and stable position. All of us undergo difficult situations in life, and often become overwhelmed by those situations not knowing where to find a solution. Bhagavad-gita guides us out of such delusions and reestablishes us in our origin position of eternity, knowledge and bliss. If we follow the instructions as given by Lord Krishna, then we can attain the same blissful state as Arjuna did.

How relevant is it in modern times?

Everyone wants to be happy and everyone is constantly searching for that happiness. Whether a child or an old-man, an Indian or an American, Hindu or Christian, man or woman, everyone is looking for happiness. But unfortunately, for the want of real knowledge of happiness they are searching for it everywhere and getting frustrated.

What belongs to you today belonged to someone yesterday and will be someone else's tomorrow. Change is the Law of the Universe." - Bhagavad Gita
