Karma Yog Chapter Three | Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta Sanjay Ki Nazar Se

Share this on :

In this chapter of Bhagwad Gita ,Shree Krishna explains that all the mortal beings are obliged to work by their inherent modes of nature,this implies that the beings are intrinsically guided as to how they shall behave and act in their bodily abode, Lord Krishna further states that nobody can remain without action for even an instant. The category of people who externally exhibit renunciation by wearing and donning the “Bhagawa Vastra” ie the ochre Robes but are internally dwelling upon the worldly pleasures and sense objects are hypocrites are far removed from the supreme soul .

Greater to them are those who practice “Karm yog“, and continue to engage in action externally, but give up attachment from within. Shree Krishna then propounds that all living beings have responsibilities to fulfil as integral parts of the scheme of God’s formation. When we execute our arranged duties as an obligation to God, such work becomes “Yagya” (sacrifice). The performance of of “Yagya”is naturally pleasing to the heavenly gods, and they bestow us with material prosperity. Those who do not accept their responsibility in this cycle are sinful; they live only for the pleasure of their senses, and their lives are in vain.

Shree Krishna then explains  that unlike the rest of humankind, the enlightened souls who are situated in the self are not obliged to fulfill bodily responsibilities, for they are executing higher responsibilities at the level of the soul. However, if they abandon their social duties, it creates conflict in the minds of common people, who tend to follow in the footsteps of the great ones. So, to set a good example for the world to imitate, the wise should continue working, although without any motive for personal reward. This will prevent the ignorant from prematurely giving up their prescribed duties. Arjun then asks why people commit sinful acts, even unwillingly, as if by force.

 The Supreme Lord explains that the all-devouring wicked enemy of the world is lust alone. As we know that fire is covered by smoke, and a mirror may be masked by dust, in the same way desire covers up one’s knowledge and pulls away the intellect. Shree Krishna then gives the call to Arjun to slay this enemy called desire, which is the embodiment of sin, and bring his senses, mind, and intellect under control.

Sankhya Yog – Chapter Two | Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta Sanjay Ki Nazar Se

Sankhya Yog

Lord Krishna or our supreme God  starts by inducing in Arjun a desire for knowledge. He does this by pointing out that his state of confusion is not worthy of respect hence is dishonourable and unsuitable for righteous people. He then goes on to remind Arjun of the consequences of illusion, which are hurt, notoriety, failure in life, leading to the  degradation of the soul.

Lord Krishna says this feeling of discomfort is felt by all and more so when we are confused  but it is not the natural condition of the soul.  He says that feeling of annoyance, if correctly channelled, can become a commanding impetus leading towards the highest knowledge.

The moments in our life when we are facing pain,rejection and other dilememas is the time a resolution of doubt occurs which helps a person acquire an indepth understanding than before. So we can say that Lord Krishna (the supreme God) sometimes deliberately puts a person in chaos, so that he or she may be propelled  to search for knowledge and move towards the state of higher bliss and on a road towards nearness with the Lord. The final outcome is that when the doubt is finally resolved, that person reaches a higher level of understanding.

Shree Krishna goes on to explain that the the feelings Arjuna is experiencing is neither moral duty nor true sympathy; rather, it is expression of grief and delusion. It has its roots in weakness of mind.A weak mind only faces such delusions , If his behavior was truly based on wisdom and mercy, then he would experience neither confusion nor grief but would be able to suitable comprehend the correct path of Righteousness.

He propounds that Bheeshma and Dronacharya and the others who are on the opposite side are all people  worthy of his reverence and love. Bheeshma  no doubt was considered  the embodiment of chastity.. To treat these men of high merit as enemies now seemed dreadful to the noble-minded Arjun. If getting in dispute with these respected elders was improper, according to Arjuna,so he says  then how could he ever think of attacking them with weapons? What arjun implies here is, “O Krishna, please do not  heve doubt  on my courage and valor. I am prepared to fight. But from the perspective of moral duty, my duty is to respect my teachers and to show compassion towards them.”

Arjun commiserates that, if he did kill these noble elders, tainted with their blood, and so much of bloodshed  his sense of right and wrong ie his consciouss  would not let him enjoy all the royal benefits of ruling the kingdom even though he may win over the three worlds.All the victory would simply be useless for him.

Arjun’s situation is not exclusive.We mortal beings also face a similar dilemma in our day to day lives  This is perpetually the condition we sometimes find ourselves in as we go through the expedition of life. We want happiness, but we undergo misery; we have a thirst for  knowledge, but are unable to lift the cloud of ignorance; we crave perfect love, but repeatedly meet with disappointment. Our college degrees, acquired knowledge, and mundane scholarships do not provide solutions to these perplexities of life. We need divine knowledge to solve the puzzle of life.and this is exactly what you would find in a simplified form in “ Bhagwad Gita ,”. Such is the path Arjun has decided to take.

In sharp contrast to Arjun’s words of weeping and lamenting , Shree Krishna smiled, displaying that the situation was not making him despair; rather he was perfectly happy with it. Such is the all pervasive attitude exhibited by someone with knowledge in all situations.

With our incomplete understanding, we find faults with the situations we are in—we criticize and complain about them, wish to run away from them, and hold them responsible for our shortcomings and misery. But the enlightened souls inform us that the world created by God is perfect in every way, and both good and bad situations come to us for a divine purpose. They are all arranged for our spiritual evolution, to push us upward in our journey toward perfection. Those who understand this secret are never disturbed in difficult circumstances, facing them with serenity and tranquility.

Lord Krishna explains  that those who are surrendered to God simply do their duty in all situations, without being affected by outcomes. Such persons never lament because they accept all circumstances as God’s grace.

Shree Krishna begins by explaining that the entity that we call the “self” is really the soul, not the material body, and is eternal, just as God himself is eternal.

Adhyay One – ARJUNA VISHAD YOGA

Bhagavad Gita  is one of the most beautiful and soul enriching spiritual texts ever written, the protagonist or the central figure Arjuna, the great warrior is a true devotee and inquires to   Lord Krishna about several issues as compelling today as they were ions of years ago.

In the“ Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Sanjay Ki Nazar Se ,I,  Dr Sanjay Biyani have used contemporary, simplified language to bring this inspiring work to life.

In this enlightening text it is explained that when a person goes through misery, it awakens him, and then leads him to experience knowledge. During this periods of darkness and misfortune a person should feel humble and realize that this is the time when he would experience true enlightenment. This is why the very first chapter is referred as Arjuna Vishad Yog. Just like Arjuna faces the dilemma in the battle field so do we all mortal beings in our day to day lives encounter such predicaments.

When in a depression or Vishad, one keeps on seeing everything as not right, It is like a negative zone that engulfs a person, it rattles and jolts them up. These negative thoughts can come at home or at the work place. To move out of this negative space, you need some supporting foundation and a firm base. And that comes to you from knowledge, which is so amply provided by the Bhagwad Geeta ,the beautiful discourse between the Lord and his devotee.

Facing the duty as a warrior to fight the Dharma or righteous war between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is directed and adviced by Lord Krishna to consummate  his duty as a warrior .

Here Lord Krishna  also perorates the most important questions relevant to our existence which are Who is the real me? What is the purpose of my Life? How can I attain eternal Bliss??

Shri Krishna also explains that the  soul is imperishable and indestructible to the seeker of knowledge who is Arjuna. He explains that the individual soul is unbreakable and infrangible, and can be neither burned nor destroyed.

The soul is immutable, abiding, deathless and eternally the same. This knowledge is of paramount importance for us also as  knowing this, we would not lament and grieve for the temporary body. He compares it to the simple process of a mortal being simply changing clothes. So, the body dwindles and finally dies but the soul does not die: it simply changes bodies.

Through the knowledge of the  Bhagwad Geeta it is expressed tha that those who have purified their awareness, becoming absorbed in sacred acquaintance and exonerating any impurities in the mind, are released from karma that frees them from any future births. They are for ever freed from any more births in the material world and are delivered to the spiritual atmosphere.

In this way we enter into this spiritual journey of “Shrimad Bhagwad Gita” with me Sanjay in this spell bounding series “Shrimad Bhagwad Geeta Sanjay Ki nazar se”

How to take a sound sleep

Share this on :

 



Today I want to talk about a word, this word is really very powerful…… people named there daughter as “Nisha”, Nisha is a negative word, I thought today is a good day to understand this word and it will help us to know the meaning of freshness, and power.

Look at the small children, if you really have a zeal to learn, learn from them, they are the good teachers, we can even learn from them when they are smiling, when they are sleeping… we can count when they sleep but we can’t on elders.
The person who can sleep well can wake up well… The person who can smile like shinning stars can gain the energy like star too.

So why we can’t sleep? ….. Tomorrow I met some teachers they complain that they can’t sleep but in morning they write poems, how the restless people can explain the beauty in poems, I wonder? Sleeping at night is very important, so let’s discover why small children sleep well and why elders can’t.

A small child is full of happiness because they don’t have ego and this thing should be learn from them. When we grow we become egoistic and this ego gives birth to frustration, irritation and anger. This ego has widened its roots in the whole society. So let’s focus on the remedy…. Why ego? Because when we grow older we continuously use the words “Me & my”, why me? Why not me? This is mine etc.

We should learn from the nature they are providing equal things to us, rain from clouds, oxygen from trees, all oceans, soil, mountains are there for us..
Their aim is to give and give and give.

We should not focus on ourselves only, when we think about others we travel the journey of me to us … and this helps us to get relief, to get sleep at night.
If we really want to know the magic of sleeping we should make ourselves ego free, and to be ego free we have to think about others more.

“May I help you please?”… Is the ultimate solution of all the problems?

The above words increase the level of happiness and freshness.

So in this season ask tress ” may I help you” ,ask birds may I help you please, these words helps to polish the society, these words helps to have you a beautiful sleep.

Oneness of God, Oneness of religion, Oneness of humanity…..

Tomorrow, I went to a place, people over there are happy, laughing and positive vibes are coming from them….. Leaving that place I went to the next one where people are screaming , crying and cursing god for a sudden death in the family.

Wholeness is not just a word we should understand its deep meaning which helps us in accepting all the things in a better way.

We became happy and welcome the new born but we are sad and unhappy on death, why?

Rather we should surrender to the decision of God. We should understand that both are the decision of god , we need to accept it and try to overcome the problem.

Both joy & sorrow, birth & death are one, they are just different sides of the same coin.

Harmony brings joy to our life, smiles on our lovely faces which ends up all the negativity within us.

People face stages on mishaps-

  1. They don’t accept what happens.
  2. Why me? Why not other?
  3. Crying & curse their destiny.
  4. Accepting the things & try to solve it.

If on the first  step we accept things and take them as one, we can find more solution to a problem.

Accepting things brings peace & ultimate happiness the our lives.

The morning session in Biyani Group of Colleges ends with ” OM MANI PADME HUM” where om stands for god, mani stands for money , padme stands stands for lotus and hum stands for soul.

All the faculty members & students bow down, fold their hands and depicting oneness of mind and soul.

How to become a “Wise Person”

Share this on :

“Try to become a man of values, rather become a man with success, being successful isn’t always the most difficult thing in the world, it’s your hard work, dedication & luck but adding values to something is a lot harder one should try to be intelligent (budhiman), medhawan and this can be achieve by seeing yourself in mirror, admire yourself, admire your smiling face & this smile is the mechanisms to solve all you problems.

We always complain about partiality,  people practice this because we don’t even pass a smile.

To be successful to be a leader you should smile at least 5 times a day.

Our aim in life it to be a receptor, we should learn from our good & bad experience & this was once told by “yudistar”

Yaksh asked yudistar to answer question then only he provide water “the essential of life”.

His question was : name the greatest wonder of the whole world ?

and the answer of yughistar was

“The greatest wonder is that people don’t learn from their own experience”, they repeat their mistake again and again.

Students don’t learn from the mistake they commit in exams, people don’t learn from their past  experience . Human being is the greatest creature of god who has a logical mind to apply and learn from any things & everything  around us.

In today’s world we focus on materialistic aspects of life rather then moral values.

We want to work under a canopy were our lust and greed for things is satisfied but we should try not to become the man of success but a man of values.

We all are unique creation of god, with different DNA structure and these structures can be made fit by exercise.

Devotion is the source of Completeness

Share this on :

Devotion is essential for every human being. This is the most important part of an individual’s life because it makes him free from all his guilt, frustration, sorrows and irritation. Devotion is the only thing that helps an individual to meet his own self. Devotion makes our thoughts unite with others as well as with the supreme energy. Unity is the most important part of human life. We can be united and be complete in our lives only through this pious act. There is a lot of input of information in our lives but hardly, it is used because the information gets stuck at a certain level of our thoughts. For the best use of knowledge, there is the need of continuous flow of knowledge, where input and output should be balanced to keep the life smooth. Women are more devoted living beings on the earth. They are grateful towards God and they possess a pure heart. Meera from Merta city was the greatest devotee of Lord Krishna who in every negative situation came closer to God. We can learn a lot from this great devotion of Meera. Let’s show our gratitude towards nature and the ultimate power through this pious Mantra:
Mukund Madhava Govind Bol,
Keshav Madhava Hari Hari Bol
Let’s unite ourselves with the universe and chant this Mantra to make our hearts pure. It is very important to understand and imbibe the meaning of this Mantra.

Dr. Sanjay Biyani

Why the colorful Holi is better than the bon fire Holi ?

Share this on :

holi

I think the basic reason for our economic and social problems is our negative thinking. On the contrary, our neighbor Japan is just the opposite. There, every person gives more importance to the moral values. Every person looks at the life with a nationalist view and is full of gratitude.
Normally either people talk about the magnificence of ancient India or they are seen giving suggestions about the problems of modern India in Present times. For a long time I have been thinking that this is such a paradox. On the one hand we talk about being the (Vishwa guru) the masters of the world, on the other hand we find that this country is divided into 565 Dynasties. Even today we find individualistic thinking. Every person seem to be thinking only about himself. Actually if we look at the basis of social, economic and political problems we find that the biggest problem is negative thinking. Keeping this view in mind if we look at the pillars of democracy like legislature, executive, judiciary or Journalism we find that every leader is busy criticizing the other person and focuses at the weaknesses. Whether you visit the secretariat or collectorate we find that every person is busy finding excuses for not doing anything. When we look at bureaucracy we find that administrative officers who get big positions with fat salaries are given this position so that they can take decisions in favour of our country but unfortunately either these people do not allow the work to be done or they find reason to not to do the work. For their petty personal benefits they don’t mind the bigger loss of the country. We all know that passivity or pessimistic thinking never helps any country, nor does it allow the country to grow. You must have hardly heard one leader or a bureaucrat praising anyone else.
I think the basic reason for our economic and social problems is our negative thinking. On the contrary, our neighbor Japan is just the opposite. There, every person gives more importance to the moral values. Every person looks at the life with a nationalist view and is full of gratitude. No matter how many number of materialistic things we may collect, the element of our success will be prominent only if we start thinking positively. Negative thinking starts from childhood. When the child is very young, first the parents start scaring him, then the teachers scare him in the school or college where he studies. Finally the place where he works, his employers do the same thing.
Actually there are two ways of working. One is the way of fear and the other is love. Just because the path of love is little more difficult, the person has to develop himself. On the other hand path of fear is easy so people find it convenient to choose the option of scaring others. Fear gives birth to anger, worries and greed.
So, now let us look at two day festival of Holi from the emotional point of view. Day one of holi is the day where we burn are negativity into the bonfire of Holika. Holika wanted to burn Prahlad because of her anger and jealousy but actually Prahlad never got burnt. So, only that thing gets burnt which is supposed to burn not everything. We all like the colorful holi played with colours because these are colours of love and purity. Let us celebrate holi with a positive thinking. On the occasion of Holi my best wishes to all.
Regards,
Dr. Sanjay Biyani
