Its been quite some time when Guruji has been quoting read Bhagvad Gita read it!
Some have started, some havent!
But why have they not yet started:
As in ancient Gurukul system, this system does not have that encouragement to read the Scriptures, to have them honored!
I mean how do u expect a common man to read something when he feels at times, the issues he deals with, are more important than reading the scriptures and need the priority to be sorted!
What encouragement does he have to grab hold of the Gita and read the verses!
Life’s taught him things, but he does not have the book!
He learns little by little.
What happens if you do read:
How beautiful it would be to understand the principle of book 🙂
Thats what knowledge is! 🙂
Attitude, actions, manifest in so many different forms. but basis is that one principle!
Knowledge leads you to that one principle 🙂
So whats done:
But whats the encouragement you have to grab hold of that saintly knowledge!
Practically none on a system run by bureaucrats!
Major encouragement have probably be seen given by ancestors and Masters 🙂
More than encouragement, these people have taken care of his mind, thats when he could actually apply the knowledge and make his life beautiful 🙂
and probably thats what Guruji has done 🙂
taken care of our minds..so we could peacefully grab hold of the knowledge 🙂
All that a man ever searched of is right here!
But he isnt aware! Masters have come to just wake us up and makes us grateful and guide us to this ultimate knowledge, the one of the SELF..!
Read the Gita today verse by verse, day by day 🙂
As Guruji quoted in one of the Satsangs that one of things that can eliminate some of the karmas is reading the scriptures 🙂
Do start reading if you have not 🙂
I have begun!
dhrtarastra uvaca || dharma-ksetre kuru-ksetre samaveta yuyutsavah mamakah pandavas caiva kim akurvata sanjaya || 🙂
PS: Just contemplating on the ancient Gurukul system!
Ancient Gurukul system was perfectly designed considering the human mind!
There’s a thirst to acquire the business ethics and there is a need to balance the mind!
Well the teachers gave them the way to balance the mind and simultaneously trained them in business ethics!
Complete individual is what u expected from the Gurukul 🙂
Trained to handle the situations in life.
after having trained in Gurukul,he is supposed to go through a domestic life where in he applies what he learnt and learns too!
And after he has lived his householder’s life, whatever he learnt he could share his experiences in the last phase of his life, the sanyasa!
How perfectly well designed system!
This could take care of a human’s thirst for knowledge, could provide him the enjoyment through his senses and so also make him useful to a great lot of people before he leaves!
Now thats intelligence!
And all this was made interesting! so it was so so much accepted by one and all! 🙂
infact this was the lifestyle which was so compulsory to follow 🙂
Now its not so eminent!
Masters have come and went and did their bit to revive the tradition of Gurukul, to pass on the knowledge! 🙂
Love Prayers Blessings!
