The Bhagvad Gita Simplified 🙏🏻

THE BHAGAVAD GITA SIMPLIFIED: 

Why do you worry without cause?

Whom do you fear without reason?

Who can kill you?

The soul is neither born, nor does it die. 

Whatever happened, 

happened for the good;

whatever is happening, 

is happening for good;

whatever will happen, 

will also happen for the good only.

You need not have any regrets for the past. 

You need not worry for the future. 
The Present is happening… 

What did you lose that you cry about?
What did you bring with you, 

which you think you have lost?

What did you produce, 

which you think got destroyed?
You did not bring anything, whatever you have, you received from here. 

Whatever you have given,  you have given only here.
Whatever you took, you took from God. 

Whatever you gave, you gave to Him. 

You came empty handed, 

you will leave empty handed.

What is yours today, 

belonged to someone else yesterday, and will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow. 

You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours. 
It is this false happiness that is the cause of your sorrows.

Change is the law of the universe, 

What you think of as death, 

is indeed life. 
In one instance you can be a millionaire, and

in the other instance you can be steeped in poverty.

Yours and mine, big & small erase these ideas from your mind. 
Then everything is yours and you belong to everyone. 

This body is not yours, neither are you of the body. 
The body is made of fire, water, air, earth and

ether, and will disappear into these elements. 

But the soul is permanent – so who are you?

Dedicate your being to God. 

He is the one to be ultimately relied upon. 

Those who know of his support are forever free from fear, worry and sorrow. 
Whatever you do, 

do it as a dedication to God. 

This will bring you the 

tremendous experience of joy and life-freedom forever.

Dharma and karma

Dharma and karma go in dearth

murk of Mayhem grabs the earth.

No flames of life and gods are shreds

clogged is land with frames and heads.

The Bull bipedal, tumbles,as worn

with rumbles of Kamsa, the skies are torn.

Bogged in gore, the Cow of yore,

implores to Her eternal mate,

“Pleads a chattel, a mother no more

Descend and end my gloomy fate.”

Then….. came that night,

daubing billows on belly of His* , ( Sky is belly of Viraat Purush)*

Marutas rove in all their might

The ailing mum finds some bliss.

Behold!!! That pair enshackled,

in a prison, as dark as cave.

The chosen ones , Devaki and Vasudev.

” Stay strong O’ beloved, its time!

not for a birth, but change in clime.”

Words of a man,to his mate in pain,

ensued by thunders coupled with rain.

Then…….

Adorned by rain, revered by storm

Brahman ineffable, assumes a form.

Lithe long Leonine arms

Alluring frame divine that charms.

Big bewitching lovely eyes,

Lord four-armed-the slayer of vice.

” Be free from fears” said Narayan

“For Dharma’s cause, I’m thy scion.”

Mused in love, drenched in tears

The Word Divine, duo thus hears.

For Shesh, Mahesh, Bramha or Man

Whose feet are fleet in worldly span

‘Tis Not! ‘Tis Not!’ whom Vedas know

descends that Lord in glory and glow.

Rejoice the noble and the wicked mourn!

To heal the planet, Unborn is Born.

KRISHNA ASHTAKAM :

The only ornation of Vraj, who destroys every sin (among us), who is continuous bliss for his devotees, and who is dear one of Nanda. I bow to naughty little Kanha (my nickname is kanha 👻😛), who has beautiful bunch of peacock feathers on head, who has a sweet sounding flute in hands, and who is inseparable from God and is full of colorful actions.||1||

I bow to the lotus eyed one, whose beauty slays the pride of Kamdev, who has fulsome lips and beautiful big eyes, who removed the thoughts of obstacles from cow rearers (gopa). I bow to head-elephant like carefree Krishna, who lifted a mountain in his lotus like hands, whose smile and gaze is enticing, and who slayed the pride of Indra. ||2||

I bow to Krishna, who is hard to get, who has beautiful earrings made of flowers of kadamba tree, who has two beautiful cheeks, who is only dear one of land of Vraj. I bow to Krishna as cow rearing leader, who is Supreme bliss when viewed with Yashoda, cow rearers and Nanda. ||3||

I bow to the son of Nanda, whose lotus feet is always immersed in the maan sarovar like Lake of my mind, who has beautiful curls falling upon his face. I bow to the delight of Nanda. Who is absolver of all defeats (in us), who looks after everyone in this world, and who is the heart of every Gopa or cow rearer. ||4||

I bow to heart stealer, who relieved Earth of heavy weight (of humans), who is support for us to cross the ocean of life and death, who is the young son of Yashoda. I bow to the son of Nand, who has beautiful glancing eyes, who is always accompanied by bumble bees, and who appears new to his devotees, everytime, and leaves them mesmerized. ||5||

I bow to the dear one of Gopas, who is the abode of qualities, mercy and happiness, and does not needs any mercy from anyone, and who relived the problems of demi gods. I bow to cloud colored beautiful one, who is a new cowherd rearer and playful, who is always thinking of new ways to mesmerize the mortals, and who is wearing yellow lighting like robes. ||6||

I bow to Krishna, who roamed amidst the gardens of Vraj, who is dear to every cow rearer in Vraj, who is only happiness for heart, and who has a sun like resplendent face. I bow to krishna, who is the leader of everyone in gardens of Vraj, who is desireless but fulfills desire of everyone, whose glances are like beautiful enticing arrows, and who sings mesmerizing tunes over flute. ||7||

I bow to the consort of Laxmi, who slept in the bed like dreams of young gopikas in Vraj, who swallowed the forest and golden fire inside Vraj to save his fellows, who is surrounded by the divine glow, who is decorated in every way, and who gave moksha to Gajendra, the elephant king. ||8||

O Lord, whenever or wherever I am born, May I be immersed in your beautiful ornate stories. Whomsoever sings the two Krishnashtaka (this one and one more by Shankaracharya), and meditates on it shall be born with Krishna bhakti in every life. ||9||

Lord Krishna’s Teachings

Whatever has happened,
has happened for good.

Whatever is happening,
is happening for good.

Whatever will happen,
shall also happen for good

What have you lost,
that you cry for?

What did you bring,
that you lost?

What did you create,
that was destroyed?

You came empty handed,
and will go empty handed.

whatever is yours today,
was somebody else’s yesterday,
and will be somebody else’s tomorrow.

Lord Krishna on Life, Death and Soul

Death is not its end because it is eternal

Death is a momentary respite

The wind does not end with the breath

Man is first a child then a youth..

And then an old man.

Then Death

This is the journey of the body

The Soul goes beyond that

It moves from one body to another

The journey which ends with death is that of the body.

The Soul’s journey is eternal

The body is left behind and the Soul moves on..

… assuming a new body…

… just like we discard old
clothes, for new

Why grieve when the Soul cannot be destroyed?

Why grieve the destruction of the body?

The body is not eternal, It is to be discarded

It is the Soul which is eternal

What is Being and Not Being?

There never was a Time when all of us…

… did not exist

Nor a Time when all of us…

… will not exist

why do you feel that this life is the complete life?

This is not a complete life

We were, we are and we will be

As for happiness and sorrow, what of it?

Like seasons, they come and go

Those who are unmoved by happiness and sorrow…

… those who remain uninfluenced by them…

.. are worthy of salvation

Be free from the doubts of killing and killed

Only those who are born can die

The Soul is beyond Time

The body is born, not the Soul

If the Soul is not born how can it die?

The Soul exists, That’s all!

It spans Time from end to end

It is unborn, eternal and holy

It is indestructible and without flow

So, do not worry about killing and being killed

Only the body dies and…

… even after its death the Soul does not die

Weapons cannot kill it, fire cannot burn it…

… water cannot dissolve it or the wind dry it

Lord Krishna’s Story

A voice uttered, for all to hear,
An ominous message from sky,
O Kamsa! Count your days with fear!
A warning that you shall soon die!

Hearing what the voice had said,
Kamsa was trembling like a leaf,
His eyes, that never had known dread,
Were filled with doubt and disbelief.

The voice further boomed its decree,
As motionless the world remained,
The eighth child born to Devaki,
Will slay you, Kamsa, as is ordained!

The import of this message when,
It dawned upon the cruel king,
The only thought he’d there and then,
If Devaki were not living…

He turned around, and looked at her,
With murder in his fiery eyes,
He raised his sword to slay her there,
Devaki, stunned with silent cries!

Vasudev pleaded for her life,
What has Devaki done to thee?
I beg you, Kamsa, to spare my wife!
I beg you, just hear out my plea!

What children she and I beget,
I promise to give them to thee!
I beg you, O wise King, forget,
The thought of slaying Devaki!

Kamsa agreed to spare them awhile,
And locked them in a dungeon dark,
The walls heard the wails of a child,
And informed the evil monarch!

One, two, three, four, five, six, sadly;
The cruel king smashed them to death.
The two prisoners watched helplessly,
And prayed to God with silent breath.

Devaki, weary and distraught,
Looked up at Vasudev and sighed;
Will seventh also be a naught?
And fell asleep, still teary-eyed.

Lord Vishnu, sat with subtle smile,
And moved the wheels of decreed doom!
From Devaki, the seventh child,
He transferred to Rohini’s womb!

As Kamsa entered the dungeon red,
He was surprised to find no wail!
Stillborn, O King, Vasudev said.
The king just laughed and left the jail!

Vasudev, with some hope alive,
Comforted Devaki who wept,
The Lord himself may soon arrive,
He said, as Devaki just slept.

The eighth day of the waning phase,
In Shraavan month when clouds were high!
Past midnight, by Lord Vishnu’s grace,
The eighth was born, without a cry!

The chains that held them broke apart,
The doors of prison opened wide,
A thrill ran through Vasudev’s heart,
The eighth could yet be saved, he cried!

In a basket he placed the eighth,
And fled past the guards, sleeping sound,
Yamuna, alas, was in spate!
He stood there, looking all around!

On the banks, even as he stood,
The waters parted, a way was seen!
He hurried as fast as he could,
Reached Nanda’s house, his friend in need!

Yashoda, Nanda’s wife, had borne,
A girl on the same fateful night!
He exchanged her for one his own,
And returned ere the morning light!

Next day, Kamsa came in elated,
He laughed and thundered at the one,
Is this the one that was fated?
He bellowed as he thought he’d won!

As with others, he tried to slay!
The little one escaped and flew,
A divine voice was heard to say,
The eighth child lives, and will kill you!

Lord Krishna 😊🙏🏻

A miraculous born
On Astami morn
Vishnu’s incarnation
Vasudeva’s scion
Devaki’s Eighth son
Yashoda’s favorite one
A genius leader
A real protector
A great philosopher
A unique teacher
A divine hero
A model lover
A true friend
All rolled into one
A divine soul
In human role
Born to kill the evil
And save the good.

Lord Krishna : Multidimensional Personality

Janmashtami also known as Gokulashtami, Saatam Aatham, Srikrishna Jayanti, Sree Jayanthi marks the birth of Super Soul Lord Krishna- considered to be 8th Incarnation of Lord Vishnu. This year it will be celebrated on 12th August 2020. Janmashtami is among the biggest religious festival in the world due to several reasons.

Lord Krishna’s life teaches everyone. Portrayed as someone’s son, someone’s lover, someone’s husband, even someone’s brother and father his acts were a model for people in days past, the modern world and surely for those in ages to come.

He is seen as a mischievous child who steals butter yet gifted child of Mata Yasodha who protected the village from natural calamities. The boy who uphold entire mountain with one finger to save the villagers from Lord Indra’s anger. He is the establisher of order and justice in society by killing Kansa and his associates.

Krishna the eternal Charmer –every girl’s dream man, the cowherd is the love of all gopies making them leave all their duties to follow him. The eternal love of Radha-Krishna is known to everyone. Theirs was the highest love—a love to inspire mankind forward on the path to God.

A true friend of Sudama, who was living in sheer penury visited his Friend Krishna for help. Even without him asking for help Sudama has loaded him with material that stayed with him forever. Krishna’s grace turned Sudama from rag to rich.

By being an able teacher of Arjun in epic Mahabharata he spreads the universal message of Karma Yoga- everyone existing on this earth is bound to get the fruits as per his or her actions. ‘As shall you sow so shall you reap’. Hence one should always follow the right path and never tolerate injustice. The perishable body, immortal soul, concentration of the mind, undisturbed equanimity– was all described and explained in detail by Krishna to Arjun

As a dutiful and responsible ruler- Dwarikadheesh Sri Krishna, he spread the message of right karma, Justice, love and respect for each other.

It is believed that paying reverence to Lord Krishna’s various roopa’s with true faith and devotion on Janmashtami help the worshipers to get their desires fulfilled in no time.

Those looking for stable, happy and prosperous married and family life can offer archanas to Yugal Jodi: Radha-Krishna.

Those aspiring for salvation, peace, harmony and satisfaction in life can offer pujas to Yogiraj Krishna.

Krishna holds all the colours of the rainbow of human life, represented by the peacock feather he wears.

If there is any single figure who represents India, its yogic spirituality, vibrant culture and ancient history, it is Sri Krishna. This is not any easy choice, as India is also the land of Buddha, Rama, Shankara and many sages and rishis of the highest order.

Similarly, if there is any single book that conveys the wisdom of India to the world, with its synthesis of yogic teachings and practical life wisdom, it is Krishna’s Bhagavad Gita. The Gita remains the most read and published book from India in thousands of years.

The Bhagavad Gita is the prime source book of Hindu Dharma, and Sri Krishna is its most visible teacher. Yet, this is not because Krishna gave us a simple dogma or en-masse prescription, or claimed to have the last word — but because Sri Krishna brings together all that is profound, challenging and wonderful in human thought and action, and links it with the Supreme Divine.

Sri Krishna is a multisided personality, a renaissance man who mastered every domain of life according to the highest vision. He is not simply a monk, prophet or saint, but a master of our full human potential in the world and beyond, illumined by an unlimited Divine Light from within the heart.

Jai Sri Krishna!

Happy Birthday Lord Krishna 😊🙏🏻

When we say Krishna, the essence of who he is, he is an irrepressible child, a terrible prankster, an enchanting flute player, a graceful dancer, an irresistible lover, a truly valiant warrior, a ruthless vanquisher of his foes, a man who left a broken heart in every home, an astute statesman and kingmaker, a thorough

gentlemen, a yogi of the highest order, and the most colorful incarnation. Krishna, to contain him in these seven days is an impossible challenge. At the most we can just have a glimpse of who he is, and that glimpse should be more than enough.

If we have to… Krishna is seen and perceived and understood and experienced in many, many different ways by different people.

Sense control, spiritual wisdom, political intelligence, war strategy, peace loving, humbleness, protector of wise and destroyer of wicked, Savior of Dharma!

Karmic and yogic..of highest level..practical yet spiritual..flagbearer of Love in its purest form..

His Stance or posture. As a musician, dancer, orator or dreamer. His posture to creation in the front is.

Evergreen lover and in the same time a great Yogi!

He is the Lover par excellence. He is the unbeatable fighter. He is my own self. He is the unbearable suffering. He is the everlasting infinite joy.

Krishna – the original romantic – lived life like one big Love story!

Hé is crazy cute naughty..He loves to eat that butter by stealing and I like that very much…The innocence and naughtiness in him will make anyone in this world to fall for him.

Krishna has always come as a human being first. A multidimensional personality, a powerful presence, an adorable child, a naughty adolscent, a seer, a Yogi, a friend, philosopher and guide..This is the #Krishna. I know..A presence to be felt..

Happy Birthday to the world’s coolest God, who taught us that religion could be beyond morality and codes. It’s about serving fellow humans first. Breaking stereotypes is godly, and Krishna is the God of all Gods.

This festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm and zest. It is celebrated to commemorate the birth of lord Krishna who was the 8th incarnation of Lord Vishnu..

Lord Krishna is one of the most venerated incarnations in the Hindu religion. It is said that Lord Krishna is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Lord Krishna was born about 5 Thousand yrs ago at the end of the Dwapur Yuga, the 3rd cosmic phase & the beginning of KalYuga the present.

Let’s celebrate the Krishna Janamashtami by invoking Krishna’s Dharma correctness, fearlessness, Dharma first attitude and Sanatan consciousness. If we can’t imbibe his values we don’t deserve to call him our ancestor and God.

Krishna Paramatma One of the only few gods who is worshipped in all the stages of life. He is worshipped as adorable infant, A young teen with Radha and gopikas As a jagadguru who gave knowledge to this world thru Bhagavad Gita.

Pray the divine “Krishna Consciousness” transcend into our collective consciousness so we can fight the battle of Dharma and free our selves from the prison of darkness into light. Let us all be arjun ,so he can be our saarathi.

The Supreme Personality of Godhead is already situated within the core of everyone’s heart as antaryāmī, the Supersoul. Thus because He was present in full potency in Devakī’s heart, He was also able to appear outside her body.

Much Love and Respect for the wisest political and spiritual mind ever born in this land. A Charmer. A Statesman. A Philosopher. A Warrior. Happy 5130th birthday, dude!

May Lord Krishna come to ur house soon & takes away all ur worries & sorrows. May he show u the way in ur life as he had to Arjuna in kurukshetra May Lord Krishna bless u on ur way May Lord Krishna bring prosperity to your home Wish u all a happy Janmashtami!!

May Lord Krishna bestow success in all our endeavors and shower his blessings at each one of us.

On this Janmashtami
please remember that: – Mahabharata never ended; it is now the global clash of civilizations – Sri Krishna’s teachings in the kurukshetra must be adapted for the battles today – We need Intellectual Kshatriyas to join our Home Team.

Jai Sri Krishna.
