[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 17-28

 


||  Shree Hari  ||

Srimad Bhagavad Gita

Seventeenth Chapter

                                                           17-28

aśraddhayā hutaṁ dattaṁ tapastaptaṁ kṛtaṁ ca yat
asadityucyate pārtha na ca tatpretya no iha

O Partha (Arjuna), whatever is sacrificed (oblation is offered), whatever charity is given, whatever  austerity is practiced and whatever other activity is performed without Shraddha (faith), is called 'Asat' (naught), it is of no avail here (in this world) or hereafter (after death) i.e., they cannot bear 'Sat' fruit anywhere.

Comment:

Any simple or insignificant act, if it is performed for Lord's sake, without expecting any reward becomes 'Sat', it leads to God-realization. But even the biggest action such as penance is performed with faith and according to the ordinance of scriptures, with expectation of reward, it perishes after bearing the fruit. If the sacrifice etc. are performed having no faith in Vedas, scriptures and the Lord but are done simply with the aim to gain respect or appreciation, that action becomes 'Asat'. These actions neither produce any reward here in this world or hereafter meaning that no where it produces 'Sat' (good) reward.

Question--  If chanting of holy name or loud group singing of His glories etc. are done without faith, then they should also become 'Asat'! If so, then why scriptures declare such an unparalleled glory of chanting of Lord's name individually or singing in a group?.     

Answer--  If chanting the Lord's name or loud singing of His glories in a group is done without faith, even then they do not become 'Asat'; because in these actions, there is affinity (relationship) with God, so they are not just 'actions', but they are 'worship' of God.

Om tatsaditi snmadbhagavadg'itdsupanisatsu
Vyāsa srīkṛṣṇārjunasamvāde srīkṛṣṇārjunasamvāde
sraddhatrayavibhagayogondma saptadaso'dhyayah

Thus with Om, Tat, Sat, the names of the Lord, in the Upaniṣad of the Bhagavadgītā, the knowledge of Brahma, the supreme, the science of Yoga and the dialogue between Sri Kṛṣṇa and Arjuna, this seventeenth discourse is designated:— "The Yoga of Division of the Threefold faith".
