Gita Saar, Remaining Part of Chap 2

Gita Saar – Lord Krishna further explained to Arjuna about why the character of man and his morals take a fall.
The first cause is that quality of being, which is known as Rajo Guna. Rajo Guna basically indicates a desiring nature. A man dominated by this quality always chases desires and when desire is not achieved, he gives way to anger. This quality does not allow a person to detach himself from worldly indulgences and the righteous man must be free of this quality if he has to find success in the spiritual life. This quality also leads to attachment to the objects of the world. The person, who desires an object, thinks about that object ceaselessly and he gets attached to it sooner than later. And when denied that object, that person gives way to anger and that leads to the fall of that man to a coarse level. This leads to a refusal to recognize reality and such a man is prone to make major mistakes and blunders. Thus Attachment; desire and anger-these are the biggest enemies of a man who wants to walk on the righteous path.

Lord Krishna further enlightened Arjuna through the concepts of the Yoga of action. Lord Krishna did this because he wanted this knowledge to free Arjuna from the bonds of his action. By following the percepts of the Yoga of action, man can be free of the effects of life-sapping fear. The Yoga of action provides the being with a single focussed wisdom but people who cannot focus their minds on one object and who are unwise are lost to the Yoga of action. Instead they have wavering, flickering and many-objects focussing attention spans that flit from worldly object to worldly object. In this regard Lord Krishna advised Arjuna that the moment that a person’s mind and wisdom are no longer trapped to the objects of the world, that very moment, that person is free of not only this world but of all the worlds that are yet to come.
Lord Krishna further said to Arjuna that once Arjuna was free of the desire to listen to various kinds of sayings and advices and instead focussed rock solid on the Lord that is when Arjuna would achieve the Yoga of action and would be one with the Lord. In short, the moment the being is free of attachment and desire, that very moment that being finds his place in the stillness of the Lord.

Gita - Saar - Copy 2

Gita Saar – On seeing the Arjuna’s pathetic mental state, Lord Krishna realized that Arjun was feeling conflict in his heart about the upcoming battle, because of his attachment to worldly relationships and objects. Due to this attraction Arjun seemed to have lost the sense of right and wrong and was confused about his real duties.

On seeing his state, Lord Krishna advised Arjun to not be a prisoner of his attachments and not be emotionally weak. He advised him to realize his true duty and get ready to fight the righteous battle that faced him.

He further reminded Arjun that, duty was above everything and Arjun- being of the warrior caste, had a sacred duty to fight the battle that faced him. That, the most holy act that a warrior could do was to wage a righteous battle. Lord Krishna extorted Arjun by saying that a righteous battle was the open doorway to heaven for the warrior and only a few warriors were lucky enough to be granted that doorway.

He further said that, the warrior who shirked his duty to fight the righteous fight, would lose his dharma, his reputation, his fame and he would also be a partaker of sin. If Arjuna did not fight, his infamy would spread across the worlds and remain in people’s memory till the end of time. Lord Krishna further said that Infamy for the righteous person was worse than death.

Lord Krishna further warned Arjuna that by the act of shirking the battle, he would achieve nothing good. That those who now respected him and his prowess would be the ones who would think that him as a coward. Lord Krishna further said to Arjun that his enemies would openly call him a coward and call him insulting names and what could be a greater grief than that?

Lord Krishna further said that only two choices existed for Arjuna. One that he be martyred in battle and attain heaven and the other was to win the battle and experience the life of a king. Since these were the only two honorable choices, lord Krishna encouraged Arjuna to get up and get ready to fight the battle.

Lord further explained that victory or defeat; profit or loss; happiness or sorrow, they were all the same and without being influenced by these thoughts, the warrior must be ready to do battle as was his duty. That way, whatever the results of the battle, only good would result for the soul of the warrior and he would escape committing any sin.

On hearing these words of Lord Krishna, Arjuna told Lord Krishna that he was highly confused as to the nature of his duty. He also did not know what constituted cowardice and what constituted dharma and duty. Arjuna said that when he saw that his own kin were standing against him in the battlefield, he lost his will to fight.

How could he battle Bhishma-his great grandfather? And Drona- his own Guru? How could victory obtained by killing his own family be worth anything? Was it not better to take renunciation and live on alms? Arjuna further said that he was totally confused and demoralized since he saw no way out of his dilemma about whether he should fight or not fight his own family members. Arjuna then beseeched Lord Krishna to give him the true and best advice that if followed would result only in auspicious results. Arjun further said that he saw himself as a disciple of Lord Krishna and wanted his guidance to get himself out of his confusion.

All living creatures, while in the world, try to get knowledge about what interests them but in the Gita, the Lord does not talk about worldly knowledge. Instead he talks about the knowledge that enlightens the being about God, God’s kingdom and the soul. Lord Krishna talks about what is dharma-duty and how a person should live his life so that he is aligned to God’s wishes.

Lord Krishna explained to Arjuna that the person who is born is bound to die. That is the law of nature and Karma but in all these cycles of birth and death, the soul remains unborn and undying, pristine and unaffected by the whole cycle of birth and death. If that being the case, why should anyone fear death or feel sorrowful by the death of someone they know?

Lord Krishna further said that if the living being does not do his natural duty-as assigned by his place in life, then it can only result in ignominy and that is far worse than death. Lord Krishna again reminded Arjuna that for a warrior, the duty is righteous war and if the warrior shirks his duty for any reason, it results in shame and that is worse than death.

Lord Krishna explained that each person should through the experiences of his life, while trying to find the nature of Truth, the nature of the individual soul and try to do the natural actions that are his duty. Such a person, who does the above, finds that the acts of his karma that he has done as his natural duty, do not bind him to the cycle of birth and death. Lord Krishna further said that man should do his natural duties and not worry about the results of his actions since if the actions are sincere, something good will always come out of them. Doing actions with attachment for a particular result is wrong. One should only practice the Yoga of selfless action since that is the only path to liberation.

The person who practices the Yoga of selfless action and does so with wisdom, is not attached to the fruits of the action. He sacrifices the fruit of his action and is therefore free of the karma associated with the action. He finds liberation in the formless nature of God. Once this detached state is achieved, that man is free and never tied down to anything by attachment. Such a man becomes one with Brahma. A person who reaches this state even at the end of his life, such a man will reach the state of Brahmananda.

Gita Saar_Chapter – 1

(By Ishwar Putra Arun)

gita saar

Gita Saar – The Bhagwat Gita is the song divine. It is the word of God, spoken to Arjun on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. It explains the meaning and purpose of life through the situations that Arjun faces on the battlefield. The Kauravas and Pandavas are two sets of cousin brothers who are fighting for the throne of Hastinapur. The succession lineage from their fathers in not clear and even though Yuddhisthir is the first born amongst all the cousins, Duryodhana, disputes this, since he is the eldest son of Dhritrashtra, who is the present king. The consensus is that Yuddhisthir is the rightful successor but through a series of betrayals and conspiracies, Duryodhana usurps the throne. The Pandavas are forced into a corner and they find no sympathy from the Kauravas even when they are ready to compromise. The situation comes to a head and war is imminent between the two clans.

The Bhagwat Gita opens with Sanjaya, granted with the boon of divine vision, describing the battlefield to the blind king Dhritrashtra. He describes the two armies arrayed against each other on the battlefield of Kurukshetra and the mighty warriors arrayed against each other. As the warriors prance around and blow their conches, Arjuna asks Lord Krishna to take the chariot to a vantage point from where he can observe the battlefield properly.

Lord Krishna, being the charioteer does so and for the first time Arjuna-the supreme archer, comes face-to-face with the armies of his cousin brothers. What he sees shocks him because he sees his own relatives arrayed against him. Not just his cousins –the Kauravas, but his grandfathers, great grand fathers, Gurus, friends, acquaintances and other relatives-who he has utmost reverence for, are getting ready to fight him. This shakes Arjuna’s belief in his own cause. After-all if his cause his just then why are his own relatives and friends standing against him? And the fact is that if he-Arjuna fights them, then to win, he would have to slaughter his own friends and relatives.

Arjuna wonders to himself that would such a victory be worth it? Would it not be better to simply leave the battlefield and abandon a worldly life? Would not even death be better than killing his own brethren? Arjun feels overwhelmed and faint hearted and asks Lord Krishna to guide him about what he should do. In the end of the chapter, Arjun collapses in his chariot and his bow-the mighty Gandiva slips from his hands…

In the brief we can say that Chapter one introduces the scene, the setting, the circumstances and the characters involved determining the reasons for the war.  The setting is a battlefield. The circumstances is war. The main characters are the Supreme Lord Krishna and Arjuna, witnessed by eighteen achauhani soldiers led by their respective military commanders. Arjunas growing dejection is described due to the fear of losing friends, Gurus and relatives in the course of the impending war and the subsequent sins attached to such actions. This the reason this chapter is entitled: Lamenting the Consequence of War.

Meditation

In 20th and 21st century, Aadishri Arun gave piyush as a healing therapy for diseases to the world in the form of Meditation.
Meditation is a quality to blossom within you, if meditation has to blossom within you, if you cultivate your body, if you cultivate your mind, if you cultivate your emotion and energy to a certain level of preparedness, meditation will blossom within you.
Using meditation therapy is such a natural and safe way to treat and heal your self. To meditate, you need to change your brainwave state into theta, which is relaxing, or alpha, which is resting. When you are able to make your brain rhythm slow down in this way, your heart rate, metabolism and breathing rate slow down and your blood pressure lowers. Natural painkillers called endorphin are released into your system when your mind is calmed like this.
Meditation therapy is widely practiced and can relieve nervous system complaints such as headaches, depression, stroke, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. If you suffer from digestive system concerns, meditation therapy could help you to treat such ailments as irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, Crohn’s disease and nausea. Rehabilitation from addictions such as drugs, smoking or alcoholism can be helped by meditation, as can asthma, acne and various sexual problems.
Now a days, many people do not realize how much pressure they are under with their high stress careers and fast-moving modern way of life. Meditation is a great way to relax, eliminate phobias and irrational fears and encourage your body to heal itself. By using the meditation therapy you will be able to make yourself stronger and better one.
Meditation is the antidote. By reducing the production of stress hormones, it counteracts all the stress-related changes in the body, giving a boost to the immune system and helping to prevent and manage chronic disease. It also helps prevent and treat cardiovascular disease and can even reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels too.
Meditation has no negative effects, only good ones. So if you are suffering from an illness, whether mental or physical, it is worth trying meditation therapy as a means of relief or cure.
If you list out problems in life, you can remove them by doing meditation because its property is as similar as Piyush. Health problems has been list out as under:

What happened when you start doing meditation?

What happened when you start doing meditation?
We know deep down that life is short, and that death will happen to all of us eventually, and yet we are infinitely surprised when it happens to someone we know. It’s like walking up a flight of stairs with a distracted mind, and misjudging the final step. You expected there to be one more stair than there is, and so you find yourself off balance for a moment, before your mind shifts back to the present moment and how the world really is.

LIVE your life TODAY! Don’t ignore death, but don’t be afraid of it either. Be afraid of a life you never lived because you were too afraid to take action. Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside you while you’re still alive.
The life of most people is not good only because they spend most of their time in doing those activities that they don’t like. They live in negative barren thoughts. Your mind and heart are not in the work you do. The result is mediocrity and failure and you lose confidence in your abilities. You somehow carry on in order to survive. Your life becomes a burden to you.
Shabd-Surat yoga is a solution that can help you. Surat-Shabd yoga will start bringing about a change that will appear miraculous to your defeated mentality. You will see miracles happening in your life and you will start believing that you are worthy of God’s love.

Meditation:

Meditation is a quality to blossom within you, if meditation has to blossom within you, if you cultivate your body, if you cultivate your mind, if you cultivate your emotion and energy to a certain level of preparedness, meditation will blossom within you.
There are two ways within – Jyoti Marg (Light) and Sound Marg (the way of light and the way of sound), respectively. The holy Light keeps the soul fixed and absorbed and to certain extent leads the soul as well, but the holy Word pulls it upward and carries it across from plane to plane in spite of various hurdles on the way, like blinding or bewildering lights, densely pitch darkness, etc., until the soul reaches its destination.
Holy Word has a magnetic pull which is irresistible, and the soul cannot but follow it to the spiritual source from whence the music emerges. The soul is helped by this process to slide out of the shackles of the body and becomes fixed in the heavenly radiance of its Self (Atman), and it led on to the heavenly home of the father.
Success in meditation depends on various factors. The first is to meet a Sadguru. In today’s time, to meet AADISRI ARUN who connects us to God is the height of good fortune and the greatest blessing. The second is that before sitting in meditation, pray to AADISRI because that will give impetus and help to your meditation. You can sit in Padmaasan, Siddhasana or any position which is comfortable. The idea is that body should not cause discomfort and disturb the meditation. Thirdly, the best time to meditate is before sunrise i.e. between 4:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. This is called Brahma-Murtha.

Shabd-Surat Yog:

Man must know where he is going; Light and Sound are both a necessity to know where you are going, and the Sound will be dragging you like anything. You do not know where you are going, so both things should be developed. Sound Principle is the guiding principle. Those who take up only Light, they may be enveloped by Light, but do not know where to go further. The Sound Principle guides there. Both things go hand in hand.

You should listen closely whether any higher Sound is coming, and while listening closely, repetition of the five names should not be done. You will have more Sounds than one, but you have to stick to that of a big bell, a conch, drum-beat, a violin (Saarangi), the flute, and Veena or Bagpipe which are the higher types of Sounds and leave all the rest.

As regards the Sound of Veena, it somewhat resembles the sound of the instrument which the snake-charmers use to play to catch the snakes. Its tune resembles that of a flute – the difference is that the sound of the flute is shrill compared with that of the Veena – just as the sound of a violin is shrill when compared with that of the flute – and the Sound grows more in volume and thicker and continuous as the soul traverses higher. It is a continuous Sound resembling that of a bagpipe. When you listen to the Sound you are not to follow it to trace out its source of emanation, as in that way it fades out. You should simply keep on listening at your eye-focus with rapt attention. It will draw closer, grow stronger, and ultimately come from above. As for hearing the Sound Current, you will please put in equal time for that soon after your sitting for withdrawal. If, however, this is not possible, you may devote time separately for each practice.
Shabd-Surat Yog technique continue for 20 minutes regularly.

Effect of doing Deep breathing technique:

Deep breathing is completely scientific, it boosts immune system by strengthening the lymphatic system of body. Deep breathing has effect on brain’s certain areas like frontal lobe and amygdala. It helps in brain’s response towards ‘flight or fight’ response. In overall, boy learnt that deep breathing reduces tension and pressure blood and hence it is very much helpful in calming the mind.
Deep breathing technique is being carried out for 5-10 minute regularly.
Effect of doing Kapalbhati Pranayama:
Kapalbhati is shaktipat it means it purify the mind and body. It has vital effect on frontal lobe of brain thus it is also called frontal brain technique or skull lightning technique.

Effect of doing Anulom – Vilom Pranayama:

In simple word, Pranayama means control of breath.

Pranayama has Sanskrit words: Prana and Ayama are combined in one word Pranayama. Prana means life and Ayama mean control. Therefore, Pranayama is the control of life.

Prana is the Energy or Life Force that is universal in nature and it is omnipresent. A portion of that prana is present in the human body. It flows at a superficial level to maintain the body and its organs. Ayama means expansion or stretching. When we used the two together in word Pranayama it means the extension and control of the breath.

Breathing is the most important function in our body but it is the most neglected one. Learning to control our breath allows us to control our body chemistry. Awareness and control of the breath also allow us to control our emotions. Mastery of the breath is vital to our spiritual growth. Pranayama is a form of breathing exercise and works as the supreme aim of spiritual awakening in yoga.

Breath is the life force that sustains life. When the breath stops, life ends. Normal breathing uses only a fraction of our potential respiratory capacity. Pranayama helps to control this life force in an extraordinary way to get the tremendous benefits. It brings benefits such as increased energy and perception, and development of various brain faculties. Pranayama purifies the channels that will carry the increased prana to some areas of the brain.

Benefits of Anuloma – Viloma:

Physical benefits:
1. Anuloma Viloma cleanses and strengthens the lungs and entire respiratory system and balance the nervous system.
2. As exhalation is twice the time of inhalation, stale air and waste products are drained from the lugs.
Mental Psychic benefits:
1. Anuloma Viloma helps to calm the mind, making it lucid and steady.
2. It makes the body light and the eyes shiny.
How does yoga affect your brain and memory:

For example when you heard any sound or noise, When you engage with sensory stimuli like sound,
Thalamus heard this and it gives signal to the temporal lobe (listener) and amygdala.
Amygdala gives this signal hypothalamus. Temporal lobe gives signal to Frontal lobe.
Hypothalamus gives signal to sympathetic nervous system to take appropriate action.
sympathetic nervous system takes action according to Hypothalamus and increase heart rate as per the implicit or explicit memory of sound (if it is not previously heard and scary then heartbeat increases) via signaling via thalamus to your brain.
Here frontal lobe tells mind (or you) how to respond according to sound.
