I have shared with you
The biggest secret of life,
Think, Do as you wish… // 18 //
The biggest secret of how to decide between the “Aapad Dharm” ( personal action) and “Samashti Dharm” (social action) and even after the revelation, Bhagwaan calls upon Arjun, to think, and do as he feels fit.
This is the essence of Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta. The whole of Geeta can be understood in this single sentence. Even after all the talk, Bhagwaan leaves it upto our intellect to decide what we feel is right. In the world, when everyone who advises wants the advised to follow what he says, Bhagwaan says exactly the opposite. Can we stand up to this test? Let’s think…
PS : (This post is going to be a bit long one then regular Haiku posts).
Today, my dear readers, I could do what I had decided. It was on October 10th, that had decided that would write Haiku on the different shlok of Geeta. 18 shlok from 18 chapters in first month, 18 in the second and 6 each next 3 month. With the grace of God and blessings of my spiritual teacher Poojaniya Pandurang Shastriji Athavale, am able to do this. It is my way of expressing gratefulness to whatever He has taught me, as this is the 100th year of His coming onto this Earth.
If I have erred during these 54 Haiku’s it is my mistake or misunderstanding of the thoughts, propagated by Him based on Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta.
I just pray to God and my Elder brother (fondly we call him Dadaji), that may this world be enlightened with the thoughts they have explained and may the citizens of the world see light through them, to lead a better life.
I personally thank each and every reader, who has taken the pains to read, ask, share and comment on the same. It has been a very Divine experience for me as I got a chance to sit back and think over the whole process and writings. With His grace, will take up new writings, new topics and share with you all, whenever He permits me.
