Bhagavad-Gita: :Attaining Peace & Happiness with Devotion
Why Bhagavad-Gita ?
In today’s modern life we are always in a hurry , doing something or the other. We want to earn big , have all modern amenities and enjoy our life. Anger, tensions, frustration, materialistic comparisons have become part of lives. Our very physical existence in this world keeps us surrounded by many kind of problems and tensions. Daily we hear news of murders or rapes . I think the much needed religious bent of mind is lost somewhere. We need to take a step towards divine Consciousness. We should help others too in moving on this path.
Reading Bhagavad -Gita on daily basis , may be even one verse a day , can be very helpful to bring joy in our life. When you start reading it , you would find that its verses comfort you and can give you tips about managing your life in a better way, be it managing anger or remaining stress free.
It’s explained in Bhagavad-Gita that as sun is situated in one place but is illuminating the whole universe , similarly our little soul is illuminating the whole body by consciousness. We should try to make this consciousness a divine Consciousness . For that let us take small Spiritual steps which can help us maintain peace and harmony in minds and add a new meaning to our lives.
Bhagavad-Gita is the essence of Vedic knowledge. It is one of the most important Upanishads in Vedic literature. The speaker of Bhagavad-Gita is Lord Sri Krishna . The Lord himself establishes himself as the supreme personality of Godhead in Bhagavad-Gita. So we should take Bhagavad-Gita as it is directed by Lord himself.
Bhagavad-Gita is the knowledge that the Lord Sri Krishna gave to his devotee Arjuna . Lord shared the divine knowledge with Arjuna because he was Sri Krishna’s friend and a great devotee. So here it can be concluded that Bhagavad-Gita is best understood by a devotee of Lord. Without devotion (bhakti) it’s difficult to understand the deep subject matter of Bhagavad-Gita. May be life poses hindrances to making advancement in this devotional path , but we should be tolerant and consistent to make our progress with determination.
Here is the verse highlighting the importance of devotional service.
Here are few more verses from Bhagavad-Gita which tell about ways of attaining peace and happiness .
In today’s world how can we be totally desireless ? But atleast lets try to always remember in mind that everything belongs to the Lord and we shouldn’t claim false ownership over anything.
Ultimately everybody strives for peace and happiness in his/her life. The real peace can be achieved with the grace of the Lord and in Bhagavad-Gita , Lord himself is directing us not to be carried away by the incessant desires. Let’s try to make Bhakti a part of our daily routine .
I would be very very happy if I am able to spread the divine knowledge from The Bhagavad-Gita. If you have not read Bhagavad-Gita as yet, you must give it a try (but with devotion please .) I am sure its reading will take you out from any kind of fears and you can be elevated slowly on the path of peace and happiness.
