Guru to understand Bhagavad Gita
Those who run
after ephemeral riches of life... seek a religious preacher... a
religious teacher! True seekers of spirituality never require a
Guru unless one desires seeking God in ones lifetime. When 11 years
of age I wanted to see and meet God. It was a simple desire of a
village boy! By 13 the lion within roared... come whatever may in
this very life I shall see and meet God!
I tried I could not get a spiritual master to guide me. In exasperation
one-day I point blank told god Almighty that I shall meet the same
fate as Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa had! One day in exasperation
Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa took the sword hanging on the wall and
decided to cut his head and offer it to Kali if God Almighty did
not bless him face-to-face.
I do not remember
what happened... but in a few days I reached the stage of self realization...
the last in cosmic life cycle! Spiritual masters are not to be found
in present times. The religious householder and religious preachers
of present times simply seek God as they desire material riches
galore. Seekers of the spiritual path need not even go to a temple,
church or mosque!
We must not
confuse religion with spirituality... both have different connotations!
Mahavira... the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism (preceptor) rightly
said, do not preach until you have become an enlightened one! Mahavira
always said... become a Mahavira before preaching anything... one
who had gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana).
and salvation is difficult to gain... the prime reason why in the
last 150 years amongst 7 billion people world over only two persons
reached the stage of enlightenment... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
and Maharishi Ramana! Both these spiritual stalwarts belonged to
India... both were down-to-earth people who laid their lives for
the benefit of mankind!
In the circumstances it is best we take care of ourselves... try
reaching the stage of enlightenment before thinking of others! We
cannot change the masses or their thinking but we can definitely
attempt in present lifetime to reach that stage of enlightenment
and salvation. Concentrating on our goal of life and taking care
of our family should be our priority all the time.
The gist of
Bhagavad Gita... the original content of Bhagavad Gita is available
for mere $.40 (Rs 20/=) across most railway stations of India or
directly from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India. Yet, how many people
truly fathom depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism.
The contents of Bhagavad Gita can never be understood literally...
it needs reading in between the lines!
It is not one
out of hundred who travels the spiritual path... it is one amongst
millions... rather one amongst billions who truly travels the spiritual
path and reaches the end goal of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth
