GoldenMean's contention surprised me to jump out of my seat. He says that ‘I think the blockage of our memories of past lives is one of the greatest crimes in the universe, perhaps the single greatest’ as this would work as a future blockage to dispensing of justice equitably and swiftly.To answer...

Be Victorious over your Unasailable Enemy

My last post on the Gita was on Soul's besetting off-course - In the sense objects, the senses lie n ambush, men take delight in becoming a prey on an object's attraction and aversion; the wise fall not into its/their spell, for these are the obstacles besetting the soul from its goal.

A Critical analysis of GMH

Glory be to God for dappled things – For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings; Landscape plotted and pieced – fold, fallow, and plough; And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim. All things... Sign in to see full entry.

Does the Soul ever besets its course?

The entire world is driven by three modes (forces) of material Nature - Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas. These three are known as Gunas.

Relinquish All to Obtain All ... (Thank you Presta for the inspiration)

RPresta has commented on Krishna's asking Arjuna to relinquish all to obtain all which, of course, we all feel is difficult for ordinary human beings. I am reminded of a parallel in Luke 14: 25 - 35 where Jesus said, "here is what it costs to follow me. Everything. You may lose your family. You may... Sign in to see full entry.
