The Bhagavad Gita is the ultimate book of knowledge and is duly recognized as such throughout the world. Its wisdom transcends the limits of time and space. I publish daily one message from the book which can be related to our daily life titled: Thought4TheDay
These are widely read and highly appreciated by my connections on LinkedIn, friends on Facebook and followers on twitter totally about 27000 people. As recommended by some friends, I am posting the same here. You may ask questions and/or post your comments which be appreciated. Hope you will find the initiative very rewarding.
Thought4TheDay (Nov. 11, 2017)
Two beautiful similes describe how knowingly or foolishly the humans who fail to realise what they rush towards their end and losing their own identity. These are:
- ” Just like the water of a river naturally flows towards the sea where it merges, so do warriors of this mortal world are rushing into your flaming mouths.” said Arjuna, being amazed at looking at the Virat Swaroop of Lord Krishna. He continued:
- ” As moths rush with great speed speed into the blazing fire for extinction out of their folly, even so all these people are seen entering rapidly into your mouths to meet their end, their doom.”
Similarly humans who are intoxicated with their success, particularly those who exploit others have to come to an end which they little realise.
Thought4TheDay (Nov. 8, 2017)
Arjuna is bewildered at seeing the ‘divine form’ of Lord Krishna. He says: ” Seeing Your frightful faces on account of teeth flaring like fire at the time of universal destruction. I am utterly bewildered and find myself totally confused. Be kind to me.
All those sons of Dhrtarastra with hosts of kings are entering You. Bhishma, Drona and Karna, with the principal warriors on our side as well, are rushing headlong into Your fearful mouths looking all the more terrible on account of their teeth: some are seen stuck up in the gaps between Your teeth with their heads crushed.” The universal form of Lord Krishna frightens Arjuna who requests Him to return to His human form.
