***In order to attain mental aboveness, man must practice a neutral attitude to all earthly changes.***



***In order to attain mental aboveness, man must practice a neutral attitude to all earthly changes.***

"O Flower among Men (Arjuna)! he who cannot be ruffled by these (contacts of the senses with their objects), who is calm and even-minded during pain and pleasure, he alone is fit to attain ever-lastingness!" —The Bhagavad Gita II:15
"The basic principle of creation is duality. If one knows pleasure he must know pain. One who cognises heat must cognise cold also. If creation had manifested only heat or only cold, only sorrow or only pleasure, human beings would not be the irritated victims of the pranks of duality. But then, what would life be like in a monotone existence? Some contrast is necessary; it is man's response to dualities that causes his trouble. So long as one is slavishly influenced by the dualities, he lives under the domination of the changeful phenomenal world.
In order to attain mental aboveness, man must practice a neutral attitude to all earthly changes.
The saints have found that happiness lies in a constant mental state of unruffled peace during all the experiences of earthly dualities. A changeable mind perceives a changeable creation, and is easily disturbed; the unchangeable soul and the unruffled mind, on the other hand, behold, behind the masks of change, the Eternal Spirit. The man whose mind is like an oscillating mirror beholds all creation as distorted into waves of change; but the man who holds his mental mirror steady beholds there naught but the reflections of the Sole Unity—God. Through realization, not mere imagination, he sees that his body and all things are the condensed consciousness of Spirit. The mind, free of artificial excitation, remains centered in its native state of inner peace and soul joy.
When the mind by deep spiritual development manifests its aboveness to the suggestions born of the external activity of the senses, the advancing yogi, like Arjuna, finds that before he can attain the promised state of everlastingness he must also neutralize, by meditation, the effects of the inner action of the sensory powers."

*****-Meaning of True Love-*****

*****-Meaning of True Love-*****

Once, Sri Krishna displayed the pastimes of having a severe headache in His palace at Dwaraka. At that time Sri Narada Muni came to meet Sri Krishna and was perplexed to hear about His headache. Narada never heard of such a thing before and was at a loss to ascertain what to do. Witnessing restlessness of his beloved Master, Narada asked Sri Krishna, 'O beloved Master, You are the Supreme Lord, You are Omniscient, so please tell me the remedy of the disease of Your headache.' Sri Krishna replied, 'There is one panacea for getting receovery from this headache. If you can bring the dust of the feet of a devotee and apply that to my head, I shall be cured.'

Narada Muni was contemplating, 'I am a devotee, but how can I give dust of my feet on the head of my Most Revered Supreme Lord. If I do this, I shall go to inferno.' Thus he went to Srimati Satyabhama ji, Srimati Rukmini ji and other sixteen thousand one hundred six consorts of Sri Krishna to ask for the dust of their feet. However, no queen of Sri Krishna agreed to give the dust of their feet. How can a chaste wife allow the dust of her feet to be applied to the head of her Object of worship, her husband? They all chastised Sri Narada for this impossible proposal. When Sri Narada, with frustration of heart, returned to the palace to meet Sri Krishna, Sri Krishna exhibited pastimes of being more restless. Seeing this Sri Narada became confounded. To console Sri Narada, Sri Krishna said, 'O Narada, there are some devotees in Vrajdham, who have love for Me. If you go there and ask for foot-dust, they will give you. Don't be worried.'

When Sri Narada reached Vrajadham on Sri Krishna's advice, all of Sri Krishna's personal associates sorrounded him with eagerness to know about the well-being of Sri Krishna. Perceiving the extreme anxiety and worries of the gopis, Sri Narada remained silent. After being repeatedly asked, Sri Narada finally said, 'Sri Krishna had serious headache.' On hearing this some of the gopis fainted. Some other gopis said with great regret, 'When Krishna is ill, why have you come here leaving Him behind?' Then Sri Narada replied that Sri Krishna assured him that if he could get the dust of the lotus feet of a devotee to be put on His head, Sri Krishna would recover from His headache. The gopis immediately retorted and said, 'O Naradji, you are a devotee, you could have given the dust of your feet, and there were so many queens in Dwaraka, they could have given.' Sri Narada said, 'How can a servant put the dust of his feet on the head of his Master?' How can the wives of Sri Krishna put the dust of their feet on the head of their respected husband?'

The gopis were irritated by Sri Narada's reply and said, 'Ah! So long you have given trouble to Sri Krishna unnecessarily. You can take dust of our feet as much as you want and immediately go there to put it on the head of Sri Krishna. If by our foot-dust Sri Krishna gets relief, we are ready to embrace the condemnation of hell for eternity.'

This, then, is the extraordinary speciality of gopi-prema. The gopis do not consider their own difficulty, but want the satisfaction of Sri Krishna alone.

Supreme Lord SHRI KRISHNA

Supreme Lord SHRI KRISHNA
Supreme Lord SHRI KRISHNA promises that He shall take care of His devotee and look to the needs of him who loves Him with heart and soul and contemplates on Him ceaselessly. It is useless and even foolish on man’s part to worry himself about his food, clothing, shelter, etc. For, he shall be provided with all the necessaries, the moment he learns to live in consonance with the Will of God. And when he is not in tune with Him, no effort on man’s part can bring him the desired fulfilment and satisfaction. Surrendering all other duties, the seeker should throw himself open in humility and devotion before the Supreme Master of all beings The Lord SHRI KRISHNA . When this is done, all is done.

***Love and devotion for God***

When love and devotion are combined, 
that is the supreme form of expression toward God.
Love and devotion for God is something I can talk about day and night and never end. It is something very intoxicating, very solacing. The Lord says, Ican give you salvation if you make the effort; but I cannot give My love and devotion, for if I give that away I become poor. This is the treasure of God, His very essence. It is so all-fulfilling.

***When you think of God as your Friend ***

***When you think of God as your Friend ***

When you think of God as your Friend, that relationship expresses the grandest form of love and devotion. Friendship is the touchstone by which we may know the purity of any relationship, human or divine. It has the sweetness of all forms of love without their contamination. In parental love there is a compulsion of nature; and in all other forms of human love there is some selfish compulsion—but not in true friendship. When you speak of a sibling and say, "He is my brother," that means he is born of the same parents and you have to love him as such. But when you say of another, "He is my friend," that means you offer to him your love that is pure and unconditional—that you have freely chosen to give your love to him.
A friend may be like a father or a mother to us, or a faithful confidant and supporter. In all human relations God has tried to express His love for us. So look to Him as your Divine Friend, the one you freely choose to love unconditionally and who loves you eternally. Such was the relationship between the devotee Arjuna and his intimate Divine Friend Lord Shri Krishna, Supreme Lord in whom Arjuna saw the Infinite incarnate. Through his devout, worshipful friendship, he received enlightenment and liberation from the Supreme Lord as his Divine Friend Shri Krishna.
In the friendship relationship with God, there is both devotion and love: the reverence of worship and the consummation of union. Love is complete surrender.

Devotion says "I adore YOU"; love says "Oh My Lord You and I are One."

***True Essence of KARMAYOGA as simplified by LORD SHRI KRISHNA***

***True Essence of KARMAYOGA as simplified by LORD SHRI KRISHNA***



You can reach spiritual perfection by honestly doing whatever duty is yours in life.This is a true worship of GOD.

Lord Shri Krishna lives within all of us and guides us to work out our own Karma.Put forth your best effort,and gladly accept the results as His Will.This is called surrendering to God or giving up the ego.The gift of spiritual knowledge is the best gift because the absence of spiritual knowledge is the cause of all evil in the world.Spreading spiritual knowledge is the highest devotional service to Lord Shri Krishna.

Everlasting peace and wealth are possible when you do your duty well and also have the spiritual knowledge given in the Holy Gita by Lord Shri Krishna.

Lord Shri Krishna said that there is no real difference between a Karmayogi and  Sannyasi.A Karmayogi gives up the selfish attachment to the  fruits of work,whereas a Sannyasi does not work for any personal gain at all.

There are two types of pleasures---helpful and harmful.Society has different work to suit different people.One should choose work wisely.You can get God-realisation while living in society by following the three =D’s=
*1.DUTY.

*2.DISCIPLINE.


*3.DEVOTION TO GOD.

***KARMAYOGA (Work for GOD) in Bhagavad Gita: EASY Explanation by Lord SHRI KRISHNA***

***KARMAYOGA (Work for GOD) in Bhagavad Gita: EASY Explanation by Lord SHRI KRISHNA***

Arjuna said:
O KRISHNA, first of all You ask me to renounce work, and then again You recommend work with devotion. Now will You kindly tell me definitely which of the two is more beneficial?

Lord Shri Krishna replied:
" The renunciation of work and work in devotion are both good for liberation. But, of the two, work in devotional service is better than renunciation of work."

“ One who neither hates nor desires the fruits of his activities is known to be always renounced. Such a person, free from all dualities, easily overcomes material bondage and is completely liberated, O mighty-armed Arjuna.

“ Only the ignorant speak of devotional service [karma-yoga] as being different from the analytical study of the material world [Sankhya]. Those who are actually learned say that he who applies himself well to one of these paths achieves the results of both.


“ One who knows that the position reached by means of analytical study can also be attained by devotional service, and who therefore sees analytical study and devotional service to be on the same level, sees things as they are.

“ Merely renouncing all activities yet not engaging in the devotional service of the Lord cannot make one happy. But a thoughtful person engaged in devotional service can achieve the Supreme without delay.


“ One who works in devotion, who is a pure soul, and who controls his mind and senses is dear to everyone, and everyone is dear to him. Though always working, such a man is never entangled.

“ A person in the divine consciousness, although engaged in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving about, sleeping and breathing, always knows within himself that he actually does nothing at all. Because while speaking, evacuating, receiving, or opening or closing his eyes, he always knows that only the material senses are engaged with their objects and that he is aloof from them.

“ The yogīs, abandoning attachment, act with body, mind, intelligence and even with the senses, only for the purpose of purification.

“ The steadily devoted soul attains unadulterated peace because he offers the result of all activities to Me; whereas a person who is not in union with the Divine, who is greedy for the fruits of his labour, becomes entangled.

***DIVINE BEAUTY OF LORD SHRI KRISHNA***

A devotee says:
“I adore Banwari Krishna. The Divine body of Lord Shri Krishna has the bluishness of the sky. The beauty of millions of Kamdev’s could be sacrificed on the beauty of each pore of Shri Krishna’s body. Whose heart would not be captivated by looking at the black curly hair of Shri Krishna? I adore His peacock feather diadem and yellow silken clothing. Even God Shiv and Shukdeo are drowned in His love when they see Shri Krishna. The beauty of thousands of Ratis (wife of Kamdev) can be sacrificed on His sweet smile. I adore the beauty of Shri Krishna’s golden ear-pendants and nose-pearl, the beautiful bangles that adorn His wrists, and the beautiful kaustubh jewel that adorns His chest. The beauty of His elegant peetambar (yellow silken shawl) and the pretty kachni (silken scarf tied around His waist), the jeweled waistband around His waist, and jingle-bells of the anklets on His feet, are heart enticing. I adore the Divine glow of Krishna’s toenails.”

***Secrets of Karmayoga(Path of Service) as told by

Supreme Lord Shri Krishna to Arjuna-***

***Wisdom of The Bhagavat Gita and its Eternal Truth-***

Supreme Lord Shri Krishna to Arjuna:

“You have control over doing your respective duty, but no control or claim over the result. Fear of failure, from being emotionally attached to the fruit of work, is the greatest impediment to success because it robs efficiency by constantly disturbing equanimity of the mind.”
 “A farmer is responsible for working his land yet has no control over the harvest. But, if he does not work his land he cannot expect a harvest. “

“The boundary of one’s jurisdiction ends with the completion of one’s duty. Do your duty to the best of your ability, O Arjuna, with your mind attached to the Lord, abandon worry and attachment to the results. Remain calm in both success and failure. Such selfless service brings peace and equanimity of the mind.”

*** The Story of Dhruva ***

*** The Story of Dhruva ***

"Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya"


Dhruva was the son of king Utthanpada and Suniti. King Utthanpada was very fond of his second wife, Suruchi, and used to be mean to Suniti, Dhruva's mother. One day, when Dhruva was five years old, his step-brother was sitting on his father's lap. Dhruva also wanted to sit there. But his step-mother stopped him and dragged him aside.   She spoke rudely to Dhruva, saying: "If you want to sit on your father's lap, you should have been born to me instead of to your mother. At least now, pray to Lord Vishnu, so that He will make this happen."   Dhruva was deeply hurt by his step- mother’s insulting words. He went to his mother, weeping. His mother consoled him and told him to take his step-mother's words seriously and pray to Lord Vishnu, who is the helper of all beings.   Dhruva left the kingdom for the forest with a determined mind to see Lord Vishnu and reach a higher place. On the way, he was met by the celestial sage Narada. Narada gave him the 12-syllable mantra:

 "Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya"


for worshiping the Vishnu form of Lord Krishna. Dhruva worshipped Vishnu for six months, and Lord Vishnu appeared before him. Vishnu promised that Dhruva's wishes would be fulfilled and he would reach the highest heavenly seat of the Polestar, which is not destroyed even when all the worlds are destroyed.   Dhruva returned to the kingdom. When the King grew old, he decided to crown Dhruva as the King. Dhruva ruled for many years and in the end reached the Polestar granted by Lord Vishnu. It is said that the entire Zodiac is made up of planets, stars, etc. All rotates around the Polestar. To this day, when Indians see the Polestar, they remember Dhruva, the devotee of perfect purity of mind and firm determination. 

"Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya"


***Secrets of Karmayoga as told by Supreme Lord Shri Krishna to Arjuna***

***Secrets of Karmayoga as told by

Supreme Lord Shri Krishna to Arjuna***

 Lord Shri Krishna to Arjuna:
1.“I have stated a two-fold path of spiritual discipline in the past.
The path of Self-knowledge for the contemplative ones, and the path of unselfish work for all others. One does not attain freedom from bondage of Karma by merely abstaining from work. No one attains perfection by merely giving up work, because no one can remain inactive even for a moment. The forces of Nature drive everyone to action.”
2.“People get confused and think that leading a life devoted to scriptural study, contemplation, and acquiring transcendental knowledge may be better for spiritual progress than doing one’s worldly duty. A God-realized person does not consider oneself the doer of any action, but only an instrument in the hands of the Divine for His use. Both metaphysical knowledge and selfless service are means to attain the Supreme Being. These two paths are not separate, but complimentary.
O Arjuna, do your duty to the best of your ability as a service to God.”

***God of Love- Shri Krishna***

***God of Love- Shri Krishna*** 
 God of Love- Shri Krishna is inherent in every individual soul. Due to forgetfulness of our relation with Sree Krishna, we are enveloped by the illusory energy consisting of three primal qualities— Rajah, Sattva and Tamah and pass through cycles of births, deaths and threefold afflictions. An illustration of magnet and iron is given to understand it easily. Love for God is not to be borrowed from somebody, only it is to be awakened by the company of pure bona fide devotee. We have got our actual, eternal, all kinds of love relations with Krishna. When we forget the actual relation with Krishna, we are under the false egos of this material world, having false material relations and false interests. So we find, everywhere in the Prison House— this world, severe clashing of interests. This is the greatest infliction of punishment on conditioned souls for their aversion to Supreme Lord Shri Krishna.

***Significance of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita.***

***Significance of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita.***

Adoring the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna, full of all auspiciousness without any inauspiciousness, I will summarise the conclusion known as Significance of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita.

***********************************************************
Among all scriptures the Mahabharata is the essence. Within the Mahabharata, the thousand names of Visnu known as Visnu Sahasranama in the Anusasanika Parva and Srimad Bhagavad-Gita in the Bhishma Parva are its essence. Knowledge of these surely releases one from the pangs of material existence consisting of the endless cycle of birth and death and gives one entry to the spiritual platform. There is no scripture in all of the material worlds that can compare with the 100,000 verses of Mahabharata; so how can there be anything that can even remotely be compared to Srimad Bhagavad-Gita and Visnu Sahasranama. At the request of Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa, Brahma, the demigods and the risis, the Mahabharata known as the Bharata in earlier antiquity and the Vedas were weighed on 2 scales the Bharata due to its importance and signifigance weighed heavier and thus came to be known from that time onwards as Mahabharata. Those who can comprehend its meanings are relieved of all karmic reactions in material existence.

***********************************************************


***The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna ***

***The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna ***

1.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna, the Lord of Shri, whose essential nature is being the sole reservoir of all illustrious attributes and who is the antithesis to all that is evil as exemplified by wisdom and bliss. Who is the great ocean of the infinite, immeasuarble, exalted and innumerable glorious qualities which being part of His natural essence such as omniscience, power, sovereignity, eternality, omnipotence and splendour. Whose transcendental form is a treasure house of effulgence, beauty, lovlieness and perfection; beyond all conceptions, divine, wonderful, everlasting and invincible and sublime being immutable in accordance with His will. He is adorned with countless transcendental ornaments: varieagated, bountiful, marvelous and permanent which are perfection and worthy of Him in every respect. Who is accoutred resplendently with innumerable divine weapons agreeing with His nature, of inconceivable power, invincible, eternal and glorious.

2.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna is the beloved of Shri, also known as Laksmi-devi, who is herself quite perfect in all the multitudes of limitless, marvelous and uncountable qualities of divinity such as amiability, compassion, devotion etc. and harmonising in perfect synchronisation with His nature, form, omnipotence, majesty and opulence. He who has at feet constantly eulogizing prayers and singing hymns, countless divine beings; whose essence, being, and phenomenal works are all in accordance with His will. They delight solely in rendering service to Him, posessed as they are with of a multitude of vast, eternal, indestrucible, and sublime attributes far beyond any definitions of words or thoughts.

3.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna whose expansions and incarnations have their abode in the transcendental celestial firmament known as Vaikuntha which is indestructible and limitless and which conforms with His nature, which is expansive, unfathomable, endless and opulent. That Vaikuntha of infinite wonder, of infinte glory, of infinite majesty and of infinite omnipotence is eternal and imperishable.

4.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna by whose will and pleasure trillions of universes are dramatically displayed by projection in the material substratum in the modes of sustenation and dissolution; the universes so replete with 8,400,000 different species of life and full of so many wonderfully variegated and amazingly phenomenal creations and hosts of enjoyers thereof. He is also to be known by the names of His manifestations such as Brahman and Para Brahman, by any of His incarnations such as Rama and Buddha and by any of His expansions such as Narayana and Vasudeva.

5.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna , who is the Ultimate Truth, the Ultimate Consciousness and the Ultimate Personality, having emanated the complete cosmic manifestation from Brahma down to a blade of grass, by His own desire He withdrew within His own Self and was instantaneously completely beyond the material existence and the meditations and adorations of Brahma, the demigods and mortal beings.

6.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna being an all pervading ocean of infinite mercy with unlimited compassion, unlimited love and unlimited magnamimity, although completely transcendental to the material existence; simultaneously willed to incarnate in various material forms similar to those of His creation, without compromising His own divine transcendental nature and periodically descends as different incarnations in the material worlds as he so desires.
7.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna is always accessible to those by whom He is worshipped and receiving His mercy are granted their desires from artha which is material wealth all the way to moksa which is salvation from material existence and their aspirations are always completely fulfilled.

8.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna's main purpose for descending and incarnating is to relieve the Earth of any demoniac and negative, undesirable influences that are opposed to spiritual developement; but simultaneously at the same time it is also His incomparable intention to continuously be within reach of all humanity. To fulfill this purpose He periodically manifests Himself in the material existence so that He becomes an actual reality for all people to consciously see, hear and learn about and He personally performs such phenomenal and extraordinary pastimes that are able to captivate, inspire and enrapture the hearts and minds of all living entities high and low.

9.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna naturally delights all the worlds who are fortunate enough to learn about Him with His transcendental beauty, His eternal, spiritual form and His extraordinary phenomenal pastimes which are overflowing with the nectar of compassion and love.

10.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna under the pretext of having to persuade Arjuna to fight at the battle of Kuruksetra, agreed to accept the position of chariot driver for His devotee and took the oppurtunity to reveal again the eternal and imperishable Bhagavad-Gita which had been lost over the milleniums. By delineating karma yoga and jnana yoga which both when becoming mature blossom into bhakti yoga which is the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the Ultimate Cocsciousness by loving devotional service unto the Supreme Lord or through any of His sastrically authorised incarnations revealed in the Vedic scriptures.

11.The Supreme Lord Shri Krishna fully described the science of bhakti yoga in the middle six chapters of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita and these six chapters reveal the goal of all Vedantic teachings and by which He is irrefutably indicated as the Ultimate Reality, the best object of love for the highest good of all living entities and that loved , He Himself becomes the means to rescue a living entity from all illusory and conditioned existences.
