"God is great." That is the law of the material world, whether we use as an example this body, or a piece of fruit or anything. ". But actually the Supreme Lord is both the creator and the enjoyer, and the living entity, being part and parcel of the Supreme Lord, is neither the creator nor the enjoyer, but a cooperator. That's all. The theory that consciousness develops under certain circumstances of material combination is not accepted in the Bhagavad-gītā. The sincere student should also have a firm respect for the Supreme Personality of Godhead. 8.8). You don't desire to become one's son; you are already one's son. In the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam also the definition of liberation is given. This is also explained in Bhagavad-gītā. Originally I wrote Bhagavad-gītā As It Is in the form in which it is presented now. That we have now forgotten. So Kṛṣṇa's opulence, beauty, strength, and so far wisdom, at least you can test. So this is the gross type of existence, I mean to say, existence of ignorance. Now, due to my covering of this material body, or influence of material energy, I have forgotten. So far beauty is concerned, you know Kṛṣṇa's beauty, even from the picture. So somebody, some section of people, they are engaged in this bodily platform, and some section of people are engaged in the mental platform. Arjuna, the student who took lessons from Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, accepts everything that He says without contradicting Him. But one must be completely surrendered in the transcendental loving service of the Lord. The hands, legs, eyes and so on are all parts of the body, but they are not actually the enjoyers. [laughter] And not only that, that He married 16,000 wives and He was apart from them—no. When we speak of sanātana-dharma, therefore, we must take it for granted on the authority of Śrīpāda Rāmānujācārya that it has neither beginning nor end. A concatenated version of Lord Krishna's Song of God. This is the..., going on. This is fact. Men must be intelligent to realize the importance of human life and refuse to act like ordinary animals. Unfortunately, in our present status, we have forgotten that eternal tie. Such are the workings of prakṛti. We have an intimate relationship with the Lord, and because we are all qualitatively one – the sanātana-dhāma, or sky, the sanātana Supreme Personality and the sanātana living entities – the whole purpose of Bhagavad-gītā is to revive our sanātana occupation, or sanātana-dharma, which is the eternal occupation of the living entity. That is not permissible. Here the Lord clearly tells Arjuna that He is making him the first receiver of a new paramparā (disciplic succession) because the old succession was broken. 8.5) One who thinks of Kṛṣṇa at the time of his death goes to Kṛṣṇa. That, I'll give you one concrete example. And we are exhibited in so many forms, 8,400,000's of forms. It is not that we have to cease all activities. So when you are liberated you will develop your body of spiritual energy. Prakṛti is always under control, whether inferior or superior. So those who are yogīs... You have heard so much about meditation—there is very popular word in your country—and what is that meditation? INTRODUCTION TO BHAGAVAD GĪTĀ PŪRNA VIDYĀ VEDIC HERITAGE TEACHING PROGRAMME. That constant companion is his eternal quality, and that eternal quality is his eternal religion. And now that, just like Buddha, Buddha religion. All of the important planets are described in the Vedic literatures, especially Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, and the spiritual world, which is beyond this material sky, is described as avyakta, unmanifested. That means bona fide religionist means those who are following the Vedic principles. The Brahma-saṁhitā begins in this way: īśvaraḥ paramaḥ kṛṣṇaḥ sac-cid-ānanda-vigrahaḥ/ anādir ādir govindaḥ sarva-kāraṇa-kāraṇam. A living being serves other living beings in various capacities. One who is absorbed in the thought of bodily conceptions cannot understand his situation. In the human society, whether one is a laborer, merchant, administrator or farmer, or even if one belongs to the highest class and is a literary man, a scientist or a theologian, he has to work in order to maintain his existence. Thus the Bhagavad-gītā was explained to him. Games. It is not possible for the living entity to be happy without rendering transcendental loving service unto the Supreme Lord. Samaḥ sarveṣu bhūteṣu. Similarly, the eternal function of the eternal living entity cannot be taken from the living entity. It was the Lord’s wish, therefore, to establish another paramparā in the same line of thought that was coming down from the sun-god to others, and it was His wish that His teaching be distributed anew by Arjuna. The central figure of creation and of enjoyment is the Supreme Lord, and the living entities are cooperators. In the Fourth Chapter of the Gītā (4.1–3) the Lord says: Here the Lord informs Arjuna that this system of yoga, the Bhagavad-gītā, was first spoken to the sun-god, and the sun-god explained it to Manu, and Manu explained it to Ikṣvāku, and in that way, by disciplic succession, one speaker after another, this yoga system has been coming down. So one who has understood this truth, that God is father, he no more looks, "Ah, this is cat," "This is dog," "This is cow," "This is black," "This is white," "This is Chinese," "This is American." Recently an American lady asked me to recommend an English translation of Bhagavad-gītā. Therefore I am speaking to you the old system of yoga, Bhagavad-gītā, again, unto you." "They are all my brothers." "Kṛṣṇa, You are very naughty. To add category please select specific paragraph and use Paragraph Menu. This means that the Lord cannot even be known by personalities greater than human beings. We are thinking of this country, that community, this family, all materialistic, because this body is material. The Gītā should be taken as the most perfect presentation of Vedic knowledge. He is not Indian nor an American or any country. If we can prepare, therefore, in this life to get promotion to the kingdom of God, then surely, after quitting this material body, we will attain a spiritual body just like the Lord’s. If one is attracted with this bodily function or mind, mental function, he is outside the spiritual purview altogether, rejected immediately. No more enmity. Now the jīvas, or the living entities, have been accepted by the Lord, as we will note in the later chapters, as His parts and parcels. Now, how can we transfer our thoughts from the material energy to the spiritual energy? It is like this: If we want to take a particular medicine, then we have to follow the directions written on the label of the bottle. It is clearly stated how Bhagavad-gītā should be accepted. So far power is concerned, there were so many fights with Kṛṣṇa, nobody could conquer. But in the Vedic scriptures cow dung is considered to be a purifying agent. The Lord is pūrṇam, all-perfect, and there is no possibility of His becoming subjected to the laws of material nature. Padmanābha7. Particularly, just like when you have to put your identification, you have to give the your father's name or your husband's name. You cannot manufacture. Nobody can say. Therefore the Lord descends to reclaim all of these fallen, conditioned souls, to call them back to the sanātana eternal sky so that the sanātana living entities may regain their eternal sanātana positions in eternal association with the Lord. Therefore we should take Bhagavad-gītā as it is directed by the Personality of Godhead Himself. The Kṛṣṇa consciousness practice means you have to transfer yourself from this material energy to the..., under the control..., from the control of material energy, under the control of spiritual energy. It is already there. Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī32. All of them appear on planets whenever there is a disturbance created by the atheists. ? The number of these planets is far, far greater than all of the planets of this material world. Similarly, in our liberated state we have to become under the spiritual energy. Therefore His name is Govinda. Of course there are many commentaries in English on the Bhagavad-gita, and one may question the necessity for another one. Consequently the Lord has to speak it again, this time to Arjuna on the Battlefield of Kurukṣetra. So this illusion, that "I am this body." That is perfection of yoga. Govinda means who satisfies the senses. Unless one is awakened to this position of questioning his suffering, unless he realizes that he doesn’t want suffering but rather wants to make a solution to all suffering, then one is not to be considered a perfect human being. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Mother's relationship is so intimate. So that is being taught in the Ninth Chapter, and in this verse, man-manā bhava mad-bhakto, "Always think of Me." There are so many literatures which fill our thoughts with the material energy – newspapers, magazines, novels, etc. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. The child can forget his father, but he cannot forget his mother. Mādhavendra Purī21. The meditation is to focus the mind on the form of Viṣṇu. [O son of Kuntī [Arjuna], I am the taste of water, the light of the sun and the moon, the syllable om in the Vedic mantras; I am the sound in ether and ability in man. All Vedic knowledge is infallible, and Hindus accept Vedic knowledge to be complete and infallible. There are four different parties of Vaiṣṇavas. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me. Rather, our activities are to be purified, and purified activities are called bhakti. That eternal kingdom, which is never destroyed, can be approached by one who is not bewildered by the attractions of false material enjoyments, who is situated in the service of the Supreme Lord. No, the Lord never suggests anything impractical. To this end He spoke the Bhagavad-gītā, making His friend Arjuna His student. Raghunātha, Jīva25. In this material world we find that everything is temporary. For instance, the Lord has control over the universal affairs of material nature, as will be explained in the later chapters of Bhagavad-gītā. [“‘Kṛṣṇa is the origin of Lord Viṣṇu. Some philosophers say that the manifestation of material nature is false, but according to the philosophy of Bhagavad-gītā or according to the philosophy of the Vaiṣṇavas, this is not so. That is My opinion.” (Bg. In all cases they enter into the spiritual sky, but only the devotee, or he who is in personal touch with the Supreme Lord, enters into the Vaikuṇṭha planets or the Goloka Vṛndāvana planet. Outside India. And now you, if you touch Kṛṣṇa consciousness, these harassments will be stopped. Recently, I was in a used book store and began comparing the older versions of the Bhagavad-Gītā As It Is with the newer version. And the whole world, great philosophers, the great politicians... Now yesterday the boys gave me one paper. He always knows that behind the machinery there is a man, a driver. Lord Caitanya also advises this. Prabhupāda: That is the instruction in the Bhagavad-gītā, that this science of Bhagavad-gītā has to be accepted by disciplic succession. He tells Arjuna that He is relating this supreme secret to him because Arjuna is His devotee and His friend. He was neither a yogī nor a scholar nor a Vedāntist nor a brāhmaṇa even. What is the qualification that Bhagavad-gītā was taught to him? That which has neither end nor beginning must not be sectarian, for it cannot be limited by any boundaries. Similarly, there are three kinds of eatables also: eatables in goodness, passion and ignorance. Then all Vedic literature is summarized in the Vedānta-sūtra, and for future guidance he gave a natural commentation on the Vedānta-sūtra, called Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. So bhagavān means you go on searching; when you find a person that nobody is richer than Him, nobody is stronger than Him, nobody is reputed than Him, nobody is wiser than him, nobody is beautiful, more beautiful than Him, and nobody is renouncer than Him, He is Bhagavān, He is God. But we have to develop that sense of love. In the Brahma-saṁhitā (5.37) it is beautifully described: goloka eva nivasaty akhilātma-bhūtaḥ. Modern man has struggled very hard to reach the moon, but he has not tried very hard to elevate himself spiritually. There is no difference, because Kṛṣṇa and Kṛṣṇa’s name are nondifferent. He was kṣatriya. The Lord incarnates to protect the theists.]. Therefore we have to practice remembering the Lord always, twenty-four hours a day, by chanting His names and molding our life’s activities in such a way that we can remember Him always. According to our activities in this life, we either rise or sink. If one has fifty years of life ahead of him, he should engage that brief time in cultivating this practice of remembering the Supreme Personality of Godhead. "The spirit of the Bhagavad-gītā is mentioned in the Gītā itself. 6.47) So one who thinks of the Supreme Lord always is the greatest yogī, the supermost jñānī, and the greatest devotee at the same time. In the Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Madhya 20.122) there is the following verse: The forgetful living entities or conditioned souls have forgotten their relationship with the Supreme Lord, and they are engrossed in thinking of material activities. There is nothing extraneous, nor is there anything needed. So all these you will find in Kṛṣṇa. What is material nature? 9.34], [Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisances and worship Me. Śrīpāda Rāmānujācārya has explained the word sanātana as “that which has neither beginning nor end,” so when we speak of sanātana-dharma, we must take it for granted on the authority of Śrīpāda Rāmānujācārya that it has neither beginning nor end. In the material world there is no water, there is no happiness, but the real water of actual happiness is there in the spiritual world. It is said there: Here the material world is described as a tree whose roots are upwards and branches are below. So that is stated here. Jñānasindhu12. This vastraṇaṁ-līlā was that Kṛṣṇa stealthily went there and took up all their clothes and got up on a tree, [laughter] [laughs] with the clothings. No. So Vedic knowledge is complete because it is above all doubts and mistakes, and Bhagavad-gītā is the essence of all Vedic knowledge. Simply changing the platform and trying to be happy. There are many commentaries on the Bhagavad-gītā, and the necessity for another should be explained in the following basis.An American lady asked me to recommend an English edition of the Bhagavad-gītā which she could read. If our senses are gratified, we think we are now satisfied. Somebody are materialist and somebody are so-called spiritualist. A strong sense of love is required here. When Lord Kṛṣṇa delineates the yoga system to Arjuna, Arjuna says that the practice of this system is not possible for him. All of these taken completely form the complete whole, and the complete whole is called the Supreme Absolute Truth. Bhagavad-gita is also known as Gitopanisad. Apareyam itas tv anyāṁ prakṛtiṁ viddhi me parām/ jīva-bhūtām: “This material nature is My inferior prakṛti, but beyond this is another prakṛti – jīva-bhūtām, the living entities.”. One might consider this to be contradictory, but it is accepted because it is Vedic injunction, and indeed by accepting this, one will not commit a mistake; subsequently it has been proved by modern science that cow dung contains all antiseptic properties. If a married woman is attached to another man, or if a man has an attachment for a woman other than his wife, then the attachment is to be considered very strong. They say, "God is one." That is the process. Kṛṣṇadāsa26. Just like your relationship with somebody as father and son, it is established. We have to understand this. Then he gets full satisfaction. Yes. One nourishes the tree by watering its root, and one nourishes the body by feeding the stomach, for if the body is to be kept in a healthy state, then the parts of the body must cooperate to feed the stomach. Therefore the jīva-prakṛti is called superior because the jīva has consciousness which is similar to the Lord’s. There are six kinds of opulences. The point is that anyone who accepts the principle of bhakti-yoga and accepts the Supreme Lord as the summum bonum of life, as the highest target, the ultimate goal, can approach the Lord in the spiritual sky. When he is outlaw, he is under the criminal law, and who is law-abiding, he is under civil law. His manner of acceptance is given in the Tenth Chapter (10.12–14): “Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the ultimate abode, the purest, the Absolute Truth. Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. And the materialist also, they are also accepting another energy. So the so-called Transcendental Meditation they are discussing on the mind. Bhagavad-Gītā As It Is may be considered the formal introduction to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Only devotees can understand that all these girls, day before, they prayed to Yogamāyā that..., everyone prayed that "Let us have Kṛṣṇa as our husband." So there is no two opinions. This abode is referred to as Goloka. The Lord is very kind to the living entities because they are His sons. Dec 25, 2020. The senses, same sense gratification in different way. Brahmaṇya Tīrtha18. By the process of devotional service, one can revive that svarūpa, and that stage is called svarūpa-siddhi – perfection of one’s constitutional position. So we are after this sense gratification. One may have faith in a particular process, and he may change this faith and adopt another, but sanātana-dharma refers to that activity which cannot be changed. It is by His omnipotency that He presents Himself in His real form before us and displays His pastimes, which are replicas of those pastimes found in His abode. Krishna and Arjuna at Kurukshetra, 18–19th century painting.The Bhagavad Gītā (Sanskrit: भगवद्गीता, IPA: [ˈbʱəɡəʋəd̪ ɡiːˈt̪aː], Song of God), also more simply known as Gita, is a Sanatana Dharma or Hindu scripture produced from the colloquy given by Sri Krishna to Arjuna during the Kurukshetra War. But if we can turn one man into Kṛṣṇa consciousness perfectly, he can do tremendous work in the world. Because He lives in the heart of every living being, He is conscious of the psychic movements of the particular jīvas. The living being is controlled in every respect, at least in his conditioned life. So they are also opulent. But this cycle is working eternally. Nityo nityānāṁ cetanaś cetanānām (Kaṭha Upaniṣad 2.2.13). Dharma... You have created so many religious principles, so many concocted spiritual ways of life or material ways of life. Therefore everything is given to the stomach. Dharmaṁ tu sākṣād bhagavat-praṇī... [SB 6.3.19], [Real religious principles are enacted by the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Sanātana-dharma is eternally integral with the living entity. This is the art, and this is also the secret of Bhagavad-gītā: total absorption in the thought of Śrī Kṛṣṇa. After the Second Vatican Council, there has been within the Indian Church a growing interest in and concern for whatever is of perennial value in Hinduism. “song of the Lord”) is a 700 verse Hindu scripture in Sanskrit that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata (chapters 23–40 of the 6th book of Mahabharata). The total population of Vṛndāvana knew nothing but Kṛṣṇa. The complete whole must have everything within our experience and beyond our experience, otherwise it cannot be complete. False consciousness is exhibited under the impression that I am a product of material nature. What is that? We shall find, therefore, in this Bhagavad-gītā that the complete whole is comprised of the supreme controller, the controlled living entities, the cosmic manifestation, eternal time and karma, or activities, and all of these are explained in this text. That spiritual energy is Rādhārāṇī. Our very existence is in the atmosphere of nonexistence. With each wife He was present. This is the whole sum and substance of purified consciousness. We cannot take the medicine according to our own whim or the direction of a friend. That is explained. Of course the word bhagavān sometimes refers to any powerful person or any powerful demigod, and certainly here bhagavān designates Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa as a great personality, but at the same time we should know that Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as is confirmed by all great ācāryas (spiritual masters) like Śaṅkarācārya, Rāmānujācārya, Madhvācārya, Nimbārka Svāmī, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and many other authorities of Vedic knowledge in India. Three, he may be in friendship. But somehow or other we are put into asat. He is impartial. Nor a sannyāsī even. Just like we are establishing some relationship with somebody or you are my father or you are my wife or you are my husband. And this Śaṅkarācārya drove away all the Buddhists from the land of India. Keeping this in mind, the present study aims at comparing and contrasting the teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita and the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola on the process of spiritual liberation. He said "Yes." Bhagavad-gītā was spoken to Arjuna, and Arjuna accepted it in his own understanding, whatever he understood. The first book of knowledge teaches from the very beginning that you are not this body. How Arjuna accepted this Bhagavad-gītā should be noted. The other prakṛti is not conscious. Anyway, India is still considered the land of spiritual cultivation. Jaya Tīrtha11. Worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Comparatively it may be that your position may be greater than me or other's position may be greater than you, that not all of us on the same level. Although fully situated in the mode of goodness, even the great ṛṣis who occupy the topmost planets cannot ascertain the real religious principles, nor can the demigods or the leaders of Siddhaloka, to say nothing of the asuras, ordinary human beings, Vidyādharas and Cāraṇas.]. You cannot manufacture any religious principle. And woman, woman, they are all naked, there was no shame. The great sages, therefore, have written so many Vedic literatures, such as the Purāṇas. This is called renunciation. The mind is naturally restless, going hither and thither, but it can rest in the sound vibration of Kṛṣṇa. He was Indian. This manifestation has its own time fixed by the energy of the supreme whole, and when its time is complete, these temporary manifestations will be annihilated by the complete arrangement of the complete. In the shadow there is no reality or substantiality, but from the shadow we can understand that there are substance and reality. Now you don't try to satisfy your senses, you try to satisfy Kṛṣṇa. So in the Bhagavad-gītā the subject matter deals with the īśvara, the supreme controller, and the jīvas, the controlled living entities. Come on. And he was fighting for kingdom. The jīva is also described as sanātana, eternal, and the Lord is also described as sanātana in the Eleventh Chapter. Nonsense. Artificially he may deny, but he will be forced. And wise, very learned, wise man, that is also opulence—scientist, philosopher, mathematician. And the highest platform of service rendering to God is conjugal love. This present edition can be explained in the following way. Muktir hitvānyathā-rūpaṁ svarūpeṇa vyavasthitiḥ: mukti means liberation from the contaminated consciousness of this material world and situation in pure consciousness. The living entities, like the Lord, are full of consciousness, and they are after happiness. So according to the statements of Bhagavad-gītā or the statements of Arjuna, the person who is trying to understand the Bhagavad-gītā, we should at least theoretically accept Śrī Kṛṣṇa as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and with that submissive spirit we can understand the Bhagavad-gītā. "The Bhagavad-gītā is also known as the Gītopaniṣad.It is the essence of the Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upaniṣads in Vedic literature. TOWARD A NEW HERMENEUTICS OF THE BHAGAVAD GĪTĀ: SRI RAMAKRISHNA, SRI AUROBINDO, AND THE SECRET OF VIJÑĀNA Ayon Maharaj Departments of Philosophy and English, Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda University ayon@alum.berkeley.edu The Bhagavad Gītā has inspired more interpretive controversy than any other reli- gious scripture in India’s history. We are after designations. We are giving you your lost relationship, which you are searching out life after life. No planet in the material universe is free from these four principles of material existence. It is likened unto a cloud which moves across the sky, or the coming of the rainy season, which nourishes grains. Just give this challenge to everyone: "So what do you understand about Bhagavad-gītā? The Lord comes Himself in different incarnations, or He sends His confidential servants as sons or His associates or ācāryas to reclaim the conditioned souls. The living entities and material nature are both predominated, controlled by the Supreme Lord. Paramātmā realization is the realization of sat-cit (eternal knowledge). His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, Founder-Ācārya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. Background of the Bhagavad Gītā The vedas represent kamadhenu –the celestial wish-yielding cow Mahabharata is the essence of the celestial cow (the vedas) Milk can be understood as the essence of the cow Gītā is called the “nava nīta” (fresh butter) –the essence of milk Gītāis really the essence of the Mahabharata If one distills the message of dharma in the Mahabhārata, The material world is but a shadow of reality. Kṛṣṇa2. He said himself that "I am son of God." This vision makes one advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. One may be a devotee in a passive state; 2. The speaker of Bhagavad-gītā is Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Bhagavad-gītā is known also Gītopaniṣad, the essence of Vedic knowledge, and one of the most important of the various Upaniṣads in Vedic literature. Brahmā3. 8.7). [The working senses are superior to dull matter; mind is higher than the senses; intelligence is still higher than the mind; and he [the soul] is even higher than the intelligence.]. That is a fact. The position of īśvara, the Supreme Lord, is that of supreme consciousness. People have to see how Bhagavad-gītā is to be accepted. Lakṣmīpati20. That is called mirage. Therefore, sanātana-dharma does not refer to any sectarian process of religion. Dayānidhi13. Arjuna was in a relationship with the Lord as friend. How is this possible? We don't want nonsense. So Bhagavad-gītā contains the complete knowledge of Vedic wisdom. And the, all the gopīs, in Vṛndāvana... Kṛṣṇa at the age of fifteen, sixteenth year, naturally at that time boys are very beautiful, any, any man even. He has no right to say anything about Bhagavad-gītā, because he is not a devotee. Fragment, very small fragment. In fact, she carries out her household work even more carefully so her husband will not suspect her attachment. As Lord Kṛṣṇa says, mayādhyakṣeṇa prakṛtiḥ sūyate sa-carācaram: “This material nature is working under My direction.” When we see wonderful things happening in the cosmic nature, we should know that behind this cosmic manifestation there is a controller. Now one may think that because Kṛṣṇa was the friend of Arjuna, Arjuna was telling Him all this by way of flattery, but Arjuna, just to drive out this kind of doubt from the minds of the readers of Bhagavad-gītā, substantiates these praises in the next verse when he says that Kṛṣṇa is accepted as the Supreme Personality of Godhead not only by himself but by authorities like Nārada, Asita, Devala and Vyāsadeva. Jayadharma16. The Bhagavad-gītā is the best known and the most frequently translated of Vedic religious texts. If he doesn’t practice remembering Kṛṣṇa while he is struggling for existence, then it will not be possible for him to remember Kṛṣṇa at the time of death. The Supreme Personality of Godhead is called sac-cid-ānanda-vigraha. But real father is God. It is already there. I offer my respects to Rādhārāṇī, whose bodily complexion is like molten gold and who is the Queen of Vṛndāvana. Vīrabhadra: Aren't we all the sons of God? The distinction between the jīva and the īśvara will be explained in the Thirteenth Chapter of Bhagavad-gītā. For instance, a child may think that an automobile is quite wonderful to be able to run without a horse or other animal pulling it, but a sane man knows the nature of the automobile’s engineering arrangement. And people may misunderstand; therefore he has specifically mentioned Kṛṣṇa who has appeared as the son of Devakī and Vasudeva. No. Actually we are not meant to be threatened by nonexistence. So bring all the books which is..., which are published in your country and find out a single man who is a Kṛṣṇa's devotee. "Why don't want." So this intelligence is not coming to us.

This decision was based on the body because he was thinking that the body was himself and that his bodily relations or expansions were his brothers, nephews, brothers-in-law, grandfathers and so on. It is the essence of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upaniṣads in Vedic literature. Simply this Kṛṣṇa consciousness means some way or other you have to think of Kṛṣṇa always.
