the Song of Brilliance – Bhagavad Gita 1

In Bhagavad Gita on 15/09/2011 at 14:00

The universe is a brilliant expression of consciousness. 

Everything here you see is nothing but an expression of consciousness, in its brilliance.   And the purpose of every created object is to remind you that the consciousness which has created this, which is the base of its existence,  is the most brilliant.

Bharath is the brilliance.  Mahabharath means the greatest of brilliance.  The great brilliance has a song to it, has a rhythm to it.  And that is gita.

Gita means song, song divine.

Now, when there is a war, you cannot sing.  War simply means disharmony, music means harmony. 

 In a warfield knowledge is so far away.

The brilliance, that is where it is the most necessary, when there is war wisdom is most essential.  And bringing wisdom not in a palace but amidst war is the brilliance of the divinity.

As Guruji says on 11-08-2011

What you read now in the Bhagavad Gita (16th chapter), the good qualities, the divine qualities, we are all born with. We have it in us. The negative qualities are only on the circumference. They are super imposed on our goodness. So, Lord Krishna says that you have all the good qualities in you. You are born with it and the negative qualities are only super imposed and you can get rid of it. First identify it and get rid of them, that’s it!

And He discussed what are the Aasuri Sampathi (demonaic qualities), arrogance, you know all those, all those negatives qualities; feeling nobody loves me and all that stuff. Complaining all the time, this sort of negative tendencies are only super imposed. It’s not your quality and so you can get rid of them. So, what do we do? We say Satyam Param Dhimahi; in this intellect may Divinity dawn. You all start chanting classes and say Satyam Param Dhimahi. Let Truth and Divinity dawn in my intellect, in my consciousness.

What we can do for the country and what we can do to bring this knowledge in the world. Think on these two lines. How can we spread more of this knowledge. What do you say? (All answer ‘YES’). How many of you think we should think on this? Okay then give me ideas and suggestions. Let’s do a brain storming session. Storm is too small, we should say brain tsunami.
