There is no dearth of Bhagavad Gita online literature available on Internet but does it serve any other purpose than reference material. By assimilating wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita literally… we never get anywhere. It was path of contemplation that finally led to pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita. For realizing our true inner self… reaching our soul atman, the spirit within our indulgence in path of self enquiry… path of Neti (not this, not this) was necessitated.
Literal text can only act as reference material… nothing else. On path of pure spirituality… it was love for mankind that mattered most. Most human beings who indulged in shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita online never came to understand anything unless they worked for welfare of mankind at large. Most people read and reread Bhagavad Gita texts online but to no avail. We must learn to serve mankind as most Americans did in daily life.
The concept of community as it exists in America must be followed by every single country in the world. The community feeling that exists in America is par excellence. The system of American libraries available free to all American citizens is an excellent example of making literature available to masses at practically zero costs. Andrew Carnegie pioneered the concept of public libraries that became a fundamental of American living with grace and style.
Working like Andrew Carnegie is what Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is all about. The primary precepts of life were further deliberated upon by Napoleon Hill in his several self-help books. It was Andrew Carnegie who helped Napoleon Hill to become a self-help specialist of his times. Those who truly desired traveling spiritual path must understand one simple thing… unless we worked for welfare of mankind all the time… nothing in world of Bhagavad Gita becomes clear.
In Hinduism… most Hindus indulged in teachings of Bhagavad Gita literally practically reaching nowhere. So was not the case with Americans who truly cared for others. Leave aside politicians who have ruined United States of America in the eyes of world. US presently does not enjoy superpower number one status as it enjoyed in past. In times to come… even American citizens would feel the pinch of American politics. The WTC affair was a preamble to great show that awaits Americans in near future. Who can help in the circumstances?
Whatever karma is performed… we have to bear the consequences… so says Bhagavad Gita!
In our Endeavour to understand Bhagavad Gita online… we must primarily work for welfare of mankind from heart. In my 50 years of spiritual travail… I have never placed benefit of self before that of others. All the time I have worked for welfare of mankind… so much so that in 1993 God Almighty graced and helped me reach stage of self realization… God realization! Soon after I realized God… contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita became like ABCD to me. It was as if I had dictated contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my previous manifestations.
Most Hindus world over with religious inclination worked for name and fame and so was the case with religious preachers of other religions of world! In field of pure spirituality it was punya karma that ruled the roost and not material riches… that could never be carried to next world. After death of mortal body it is only punya or paap karma that carried to next life manifested by our soul atman, the spirit within! When law of karma is governing in entire cosmos… why indulge in unethical practices that prolonged our cosmic journey. In Hinduism a soul is termed atman.
For a sincere seeker of spirituality… ephemeral riches of physical manifest life carried no meaning. By indulging in Bhagavad Gita online… by concentrating on underlying meaning contained in shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita human beings finally understood Bhagavad Gita in totality. Understanding Bhagavad Gita was the path… gaining enlightenment, ultimate goal of life on mother earth. As a human being it should be our Endeavour to indulge in process of self enquiry… Neti (not this, not this) to reach God in present life time!
