We need to understand the Bhagavad Gita and, as much as you can, to follow the teaching in your life. It's not enough just reading the book and intellectually knowing the stories and dialogues. When you are in a crisis, or you are going through problems, rough times, hard times, when there is so much confusion in life - that is the time when one should apply the teaching of the Bhagavad Gita. Bhagavad means divine and Gita means a song - a song, which was sung by the Lord. A divine song. That's what Bhagavad Gita is all about.

This scripture is a very powerful book. So many things are here that we need nowadays, in this society, the environment we are living in. I've found this Bhagavad Gita is very practical. This is yoga too. It is said in the Gita that this book is the essence of all the scriptures - all the revealed scriptures, philosophy, Bible, Upanishads. You don't need to read all of them. Just read the Bhagavad Gita and you will know about all of them. It's a very compact scripture that deals with the practical aspects of life.

The Bhagavad Gita teaches us the art of life.

The Gita has so much psychology of the human mind. How does the human mind operate? What happens when we are in a situation where we have the understanding but where sometimes we don't use our understanding. Somehow we are totally blank. Then afterwards, we feel very sorry. We feel guilty - why did we do that? We feel bad and that goes on and on and we build some kind of block to ourselves. We don't understand many things - that we are the doers, that we have created all those blocks in us. That is why we are confused.

We do not seem to have a clear mind when we need to make a decision. We have several opinions and we also seek others' opinions. We are not sure. Because of that, we are living with such tension. There is always ongoing tension in our lives which then creates lots of commotion. Because of that commotion, we have no idea what's going on and what to do. That is why this scripture is very handy. Just take one example from this book. Try to apply one principle. You will see the difference in you. Your life will change. Your attitude will change.

Next time:
Nobody comes and makes you happy.
Nobody comes and makes you unhappy.
The real happiness is within
.

It is so very true that happiness is from within. I would go to the extent of saying that happiness is relative but once you develop the inner core- it becomes more lasting and we could call it joy.

One must compare the inner core with the outer show. With outer show one could pretend to be happy, polite, friendly - but mean something else entirely in the inner core.

When we gradually develop ourselves there will be greater harmony between inner core and outer show. Then you will learn to " BE" rather than struggle to " BECOME"

Shakespeare said " A rose by any other name smells as sweet"- It is sweet because its inner nature is sweet. It doesn't become sweet- it is sweet.

Prof.Lakshman
