[gita-talk] Re: Share your BHAAVAS from BHAGAVAD GITAJI


Shree hari Ram Ram


Gita Talk Moderators, Ram Ram


Dear Sadhakas,

Here i am sharing a beautiful Bhava from ninth adhyaya of Gita ji, which came to
my mind. (As rightly said by respected Swami ji that Gita ji is the infinite sea
of divine bhavas and messages).

In the beginning of 9th chapter Bhagwan says (verse 4 and 5):

maya tatamidam sarvam jadavyakt murtina,
matsthani sarvabhutani, na chaham teshu avasthitah.
na cha matsthani bhutani, pashya me yogamaishvaram,
butabhranna cah bhutastho, mamaatma bhtbhavanah.

Meaning: although this whole creation is within me and i am pervading through
everything in this creation, but see the might of my "yogaishwarya", that
despite being so i am neither in them and they are also not within me. (This is
a little difficult to comprehend, and a beautiful commentary is given by Swami
ji on this.)

and towards the end of the same chapter in the verse 29 Bhagwan says that:

samoaham srvabhuteshu na me dveshyoasti na priyah,
ye bhajanti tu maam bhaktya, mayi te teshu chapyaham.

Meaning: and those who constantly remember me with love and devotion, they are
always within me and i am also directly manifest in them.

Bhava: if we combine the direct meaning of these verses in the beginning of
adhayaya and the concluding verse towards the end of adhyaya, a beautiful bhava

"Oh Arjun! although i am everywhere in everything and everything is within me
but despite this i am not manifest in them and they are also not within me. But
there is an Exception, i become manifest in my Bhaktas and they also reside
within me constantly. although i am impartial to everyone but for my bhakta i
become partial in this respect."

Note: Shri Gitaji is a vaangmaya vigrah of Bhagwan Shri Krishna and we see him
in the form relevant to our bhava(Ja ki rahi bhavana jaisi, Prabhu murat tin
dekhi taisi. Therefore there is not a single meaning and single commentary on
Gita ji. there are many according to the bhava of the commentator, and all are
true and all are divine and all are perfect from their perspectives.

Jai Shri Krishna,

Dharmendra Sharma


Dear Sadhakas,
Hare Krishna.
This is in response to a question from a Sadhaka regarding Bhavas from BhagavadGita.

BhagavadGita stresses the importance of Bhaktiyoga which is straightforward, and practical for this Kaliyuga. It is said all over Gita, to worship Him with undivided attention which takes us to His Abode. I would like to mention a couple.
" Na tad bhasayate suryo
Na sasanko napavakaha
Yadgatva nanivartante
Tad dharma paramam mama"
Gitaji (15, 6)
Which means,
' Supreme abode of The Lord is not illuminated by sun, moon, or fire. It is illuminated by The Lord Himself. Once you reach Him, there is no question of coming back to this material world.'

You can worship whichever deity you want but once you reach that particular deity, after exhausting the punyakarma, you have to come back to the material world. But once you reach Lord Krishna's abode you will not take birth again which is described nicely in the following Verse.

"Abrahma bhuvanalloka
Mam upetyatukaunteya
Punarjanma navidyate"
Gitaji (8,16)
Which means,
' From the highest to lowest planet , all are places of misery wherein repeated births and deaths take place. One who attains My Abode will never take birth again.'

Let us worship The Lord with undivided attention and attain Him in the end.

Thank You

Humble Saadhaka has nothing to share (bhavas from Gita) here in the forum, reason being Silence can't be shared with others.


Dharmendraji, thanks for sharing your bhava. You have mentioned that God becomes manifest to bhaktas and is partial to them. Who is "bhakta"?

"bhakta" is person who sees His Lord in all living beings. Such person serves living entities around him/ her seeing presence of God in them. This starts with treating one's family members and one's own self with love, respect, care, service, kindness and compassion and then, extending it to one's city, state, nation and ultimately, whole world.

Some people think that service to others is like sacrifice and is done at the cost of one's own happiness. That is wrong understanding. Such person is happy and content who lives life to the fullest and helps others to do so.

In the same way Goswami Tulasidas says,

"Hari vyapak sarvatra samana, prem te pragat hoi mai jana"
