Bhagwad Geeta Ep-8

Param Shraddheya Swami Swatantranand Saraswati ji Maharaj preaching the devotees about the goodness. The urge to inflict others while being in the temple before god is a sin. Pondering to do something worse to others in sub-conscious mind is also considered as sin. A tale goes, once an emulation began between two friends. Initially, they competed to lag other behind in the earning wealth and fame. Coincidently, both ended it up by becoming saints (seers) having grown fed-up. Then, they contended in singing devotional songs. Both paid penance at the bank of a river. Having gone through rigorous auterity, lord Brahma got appeased and aked the first one to put forthhis heartiest desire. He rushed back to his companion for asking what would he wish. Caught in dilemma of how much did he worry about his friend\’s wish, lord asked the same to the second one. The second one asked him what he wished. The reply was that the first one had not yet wished; he would ask subsequent to the wish of the second one. The second saint denied clearly by saying his right was prior; therefore, let him ask first. Both passed the lord to each other for making wish. Eventually, the deity replied to make their wish, else he would be eternal. At this, the elder one told that whatever his younger brother would wish, he would be given double of it to the elder, for example 1 crore or a bungalow. The god said, \”May your wish come true (tathhastu).\” Then, almighty moved to the first one and asked once again his wish while informing him that the younger would get double of what he would wish. After a deep consideration, he said,\”make me blind of one eye.\” After such a severe penance, one became blind and the other became blind of one eye. Possessing no wish of doing good to others is considered as infidelity while it\’s vice-versa is called religion. Those who sacrifice their life for the welfare of others become immortal. Rishi \’Dadhichi\’ died through the power of meditation. \’Vajra\’ was made using his bones by Vishwakarma to kill \’Vritasura\’. On seeing \’Vajra\’ in the hands of lord Indra, the beast urged curiously to slain him and let him meet the eternity. For meeting the eternal god, he was as eager as a curious chick waiting for its mother to feed it. The hit of Vajra by lord Indra brought out the soul of Vritasura and his halo mingled in almighty permanently while winning emancipation from the complexities of life and death. Lord Krishna\’s birth is scripted in the 10th lesson of Skand-Purana. From historical point of view, lord Rama was born in \’Treta-yuga\’ and lord Krishna in \’Dwaapar-yuga\’. Lord Krishna took birth subsequent to lord Rama; thus, Ram-Katha is scripted in 9th skand and Krishna-katha in 10th skand. Lord Rama is famous as \’man of dignity\’ while lord Krishna is popular as \’Yug-Purusha\’. Both resemble two rails of the same track. There are some ethical-prohibitions in the initial stage of reverance while it gets exempted from those assumptions at its last stage just as Banyan plant needs fencing but having grown-up, it does not fear from even an elephant. Swami Tulsidas named his scripture \’Ramacharitmanas\’. In the mood of mock, Sita asked lord Rama if her feet were more beautiful than those of his. Lord Rama disagreed. They both put the same query before younger Lakshman at his arrival from jungle after collecting twigs. Lakshman concluded that lord Rama\’s feet were more beautiful since the beautiful feet of Sita were appearing elegant due to her husband Ram since his nobility or dignity was the the greatest of all (matchless) and thus, he is worshipped in altar. He made essence saying that the decorum has an edge over decency. However, Ravana was ahead of lord Rama in every respect except one. Lord Rama epitomizes decorum while Ravana symbolizes wickedness. Thus, Ravana\’s effigies are burnt while Lord Rama is worshipped. Hence, Ramacharitmanas was scripted by Tulsidas to carve the civilized character through the bridge resembling character of lord Rama. The motto of Ramacharitmanas is to impart the lesson of meeting eternity while being a dignified mundane creature. The instances of idealism are found in every character or protagonist of Ramayana. Step mother \’Kekayi\’ gifted the keys of a newly built palace to Sita, her step daughter-in-law when lord Rama honoured her by rendering priority over his own mother \’Kaushalya\’ after getting married with Sita.
