I did all the needed diving and delving necessary to understand the difficult words and phrases and present them to the reader in the clearest and the most objective manner. This books intent is not to advance a particular religious slant, for all religions have universal Truths, which I find in Bhagavad-Gita.Materials from reputable Sanskrit-English Dictionaries and Hindu religious books helped me explain the Sanskrit words and phrases and keep the flow supple, simple, and fluid. You will find reference to all religions and their Truths in the commentary section. Hindu religion calls it Nvirrti (involution-- centripetal movement of the soul to the Great Soul).He whom the Self chooses, by him the Self can be gained. But he who has not first turned away from his wickedness, who is not tranquil, and subdued, or whose mind is not at rest, he can never obtain the Self (even) by knowledge.Perseverance in (seeking to gain) the knowledge of the Supreme Spirit, and perception of the gain that comes from knowledge of the truth: This is called knowledge : all that is contrary to this is ignorance.Topics Hindu, Hinduism, India, Bhagavad-gita, Bhagavad Gita, Gita, Krishna, Arjuna, Women, Feminism, God, Satanic Verses, Hindutva, Hindu Terrorism, Saffron Terror, Quran, Koran, Islam, Allah, Islamic Terrorism, Criticism of Islam, Criticism of Hinduism, Criticism of Bhagavad Gita, Criticism of Krishna, genealogy This work mainly presents a hardcore moral criticism of the Bhagavad-gita, the criticism that the Gita in fact implies that 1.Krishna—the preacher of yoga—is not in the least a yogi himself, 2. Krishna—for reasons other than the ones for which he is considered evil—is nothing short of a terrorist and the Gita is Hindu terrorism.
And yes, Mr or Ms Smartypants, I’m fully aware that three halves make for one and a half, and one and a half of everything makes for a fuller life, and I like it better that way; thanks for noticing. One cool thing about the Gita — basically a conversation between Arjuna, the super-warrior wracked by guilt and indecision before the imminent bloodshed of his kinsmen, and Krishna, his charioteer/advisor, who is really an avatar (earthly incarnation) of the powerful god Vishnu — is that it makes for a powerfully dramatic story.OK, so maybe this is just an aberration, they’re not really serious, right? I’m only up to Chapter 4, and there have already been 4-5 mentions of how caste-mixing is the ultimate evil, almost as bad as deep-fried chocolate bars or voting Republican.We know what fate falls/ On families broken:/ The rites are forgotten,/ Vice rots the remnant/ Defiling their women,/ And from their corruption/ Comes mixing of castes:/ The curse of confusion/ Degrades the victims/ And damns the destroyers. Could it be that this book of scripture — as influential in India as the gospel of Hinduism as the Bible is to an American audience — could have perpetuated the hereditary Indian caste system for centuries while holding back the development of egalitarianism even to this day?Sponsored Products are advertisements for products sold by merchants on When you click on a Sponsored Product ad, you will be taken to an Amazon detail page where you can learn more about the product and purchase it.
