BMK Gita-Gyan 14 C2V24-28 – Repeat till one understands

अच्छेद्योऽयमदाह्योऽयमक्लेद्योऽशोष्य एव च | नित्य: सर्वगत: स्थाणुरचलोऽयं सनातन: || 24|| achchhedyo ’yam adāhyo ’yam akledyo ’śhoṣhya eva cha nityaḥ sarva-gataḥ sthāṇur achalo ’yaṁ sanātanaḥ The soul is unbreakable and incombustible; it can neither be dampened nor dried. It is everlasting, in all places, unalterable, immutable, and primordial. अव्यक्तोऽयमचिन्त्योऽयमविकार्योऽयमुच्यते […]


What makes a leader ?

In the recently concluded T20 match between South Africa and India, the man of the match was Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. He took five wickets and became the first Indian bowler to take 5 wickets in a match in all formats of the game. That’s great and congratulations to him. […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 13 C2V23 – Integrity

Verse 23 from Chapter 2 is also something that I chose for the Bhagavad Gita recitation competition at the Ramakrishna Mission, Shillong way back in 1982. Its again a classic verse that speaks of how the soul is unaffected by weapons, fire, water or wind. नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 12 C2V22 – The New

I remember using this verse (verse 22 from chapter 2) during a Bhagvad Gita recitation competition that I participated in at the Ramakrishna Mission in Shillong. वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णाति नरोऽपराणि | तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णा न्यन्यानि संयाति नवानि देही || 22|| vāsānsi jīrṇāni yathā vihāya […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 11 C2V21 – Assumptions

Verse 21 from Chapter 2 of the Bhagavad Gita talks of the how human beings assume that they can kill another human being when in reality, the soul is imperishable… well, this isn’t the only thing we human beings assume. :):). वेदाविनाशिनं नित्यं य एनमजमव्ययम् | कथं स […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 10 C2V20 – Fear

Through the Bhagavad Gita, I feel Lord Krishna tries to remove the two biggest fears that human beings have – the fear of death and the fear of the unknown. In several verses, he keeps re-inforcing the message of the soul being immortal and just the body dying. […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 9 C2V19 – Reality

Lord Krishna is considered an avatar of Vishnu and the most complete of his avatars. There can be a debate about whether Lord Krishna is a God or if there is a God at all, but its abundantly clear that Krishna is a being of supreme intelligence and […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 8 C2V18 – Lifecycle

Life is a cycle and Chapter 2 Verse 18 seems to talk about this .. well, everything is cyclical and ever changing. अन्तवन्त इमे देहा नित्यस्योक्ता: शरीरिण: | अनाशिनोऽप्रमेयस्य तस्माद्युध्यस्व भारत || 18|| antavanta ime dehā nityasyoktāḥ śharīriṇaḥ anāśhino ’prameyasya tasmād yudhyasva bhārata anta-vantaḥ—having an end; ime—these; dehāḥ—material […]


BMK Gita-Gyan 7 C2V17 – Imperishable

Am not sure if Lord Krishna ever thought that man would create plastic to rival the imperishable soul…. he might have changed verse 17 of Chapter 2 slightly if he knew or maybe he has said something in some other verse to tackle the imperishable plastic !!! Chapter […]
