Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aba Brother
Oh yes sis, back i am again but in Bangalore which Is 3000 + mms from my place, Jaipur. On 20th I'll be there. Here too the temperatures are just so agreeable 21 or 22 degree C. And I'm not good at typing in my mobile. It's a make-do arrangement with lots of typos. Everything has been a pleasurable experience all the way. In one of my earlier trekking, I went up to 19000 ft. But that was ages ago when I was 19 or 20

Oh, you are back now! Yes, when one is enjoying vacation, one tends to not want to return. It must have been very lovely there. I hope you are refreshed, and I look forward to reading your posts again. Some people have trouble breathing at elevations over 10,000 feet, others don't. No one is quite sure why that is. It became apparent in the Mexico City Olympics.

Re: GoldenMean
I am refraining from making any comment on the superheroes or otherwise of their statuses at the moment. Let's say we'll together decide as we go along. Thank you so very much for your egging me on with friendly challenges. Cheers ...

I await your next post with pleasant anticipation.  I suspect that a hero will arise,  to end the egotistical drama and soap opera.  But again I ask,  are these entities supposed to be gods,  or just notable humans,  or those superhumans of yore,  that you mentioned before?  Cheers

Re: Anib
Thanks GoldenMean for your pointed observations. All I have given is only half of the background of the Bhagavsd-Gita. It is all-encompassing in the philosophies of Karma, Bhakti, Ghana and Raja yoga, which I think should be not just only elevating and immensely educative, it also has the effect of changing the overall perspective for the parochial way of our thinking. So to make a conclusion before one has even started will be an immature step.Today I'll give the part II to the background which I hope will be in order to entering into its first chapter. Hope everyone will find it not so tedious at all.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Aba Brother
Thank you dear sis Presta for your very sweet wishes.I was at 11000 ft in the foggy, misty cold surroundings of the mountains and had a feeling that I should set up a thatched hut there and never come back. But then tere is the family... Unearthing the mysteries embedded in great world literatures is my passion and I so enjoy doing them.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Aba Brother

Dear Aba Bro - That would be very enjoyable, but if it's too much study and work, do something that will be more pleasing and enjoyable for you. You always do your best, and we appreciate each post regardless, though I am curious. Do enjoy that weather, and let your mind relax and float into the fogs of the mountains. Refresh, renew, and regroup! Enjoy!

Re: Re: Re: Aba Brother
Dear sis Presta😃... I'm thinking of giving it in the form of a series. You will enjoy them for sure but they require quite a lot of study. I'll try do my best.😎Enjoying the fine weather in the jungles of coffee plantation.

Long ago,  I bought a book of the Bhagavad-Gita,  and I read some of it.  Like your translation here,  it struck me as similar to a human soap opera on TV,  of egotistical and immature people struggling with each other,  to gain the upper hand and best their opponents,  or to gain their own selfish goals..... 

and yet,  these are supposed to be our Gods??  Or they are,  how did you put it,  superhuman heroes of yore?  Whatever they are,  most of them are petty,  selfish, and mean.  I see no real value or moral teachings in their soap opera struggles with each other,  but perhaps I am missing something...... ? 

Will someone truly wise and mature rise among them,  to punish them and put them in their place?  Where is their divinity,  their wisdom,  their compassion for one another?  They behave like the average primitive tribe of humans,  and this is common to most descriptions of  'gods'  in other cultures.  I just saw the new movie Wonder Woman,  and it is similar in its depiction of the Gods of Greek mythology bickering,  fighting,  destroying each other for selfish purposes.  You would think that  'gods'  would be more mature,  and have more important things to do than plot against each other and kill each other.    

An alternate explanation I have seen is that these beings were aliens,  human-like beings from elsewhere,  who discovered Earth and came here to rule over us humans and exploit us.  A group of them settled in India  (other groups settled elsewhere,  such as mining for gold in Africa),  and that your Vedas are a record of their egotistical battles and feuds with each other.  Now this I could believe.

Re: Re: Aba Brother

Oh, so enjoyable was your translation and to get it right from the Sanskrit so to speak, makes it even better. I can imagine the work that was to translate. Enjoy the hill station very much. Our weather here is like that these days, dear Abi brother...

Re: Aba Brother

Am glad you find the explanation good. It took me quite an effort to translate the Sanskrit verses, but iam happy I could do this. It will include all Karma aspects and beyond. I am now going to the hill station I mentioned where there is no network. So for three days I am off. Thanks again, dear Presta sis.

Aba Brother

Wonderfully explained, and it comes into focus more clearly now. Epic is true, and such a patient way you have of explaining this to us. I wait to read more, for it is fascinating and the messages in the Bhagavad-Gita must be enlightening to know. Thank you so much, dear brother Aba.Well done, yet again!

epic  writing and epic reading for I read slowly and repeatedly to ensure that this time I understand the story more. Eight days that old King and warrior lived after being so cruelly shot through with arrows. Such will I have seen when nursing, people who one thinks should be dead but who will not die until they are ready.
