review Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (Paperback)

Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (Paperback) review Ð 3 Editorial Reviews The publisher Bhaktivedanta Book Trust harekrishnacom June 15 2001 Book Description Bhagavad gita As It Is The Bhagavad gita is the main source book on yoga and a concise summary of India's Vedic wisdom Yet remarkably the setting for this best known classic of spiritual literature is an ancient Indian battlefield At the last momen. In general the Gita has always made a big impression on me despite its faults It opened me up to seeing the world in a way that I have never considered before Still I find several problems with it in general1 There is a constant wavering back and forth between the nature of reality as dualistic or monistic For example one of the primary notions n the Gita is that we all have our own individual karma and that we are reincarnated into various forms and positions in society based upon that karma Yet in other places it seems that there is the older notion that god is all there is and that we are ultimately all ONE that is to say that atman in neach of us is identical with the Brahman that pervades the whole of reality this is totally incompatible with monsism If we are really all one then noone can have any individual karma and we are forced to accept the Buddhist idea of the interdependant nature of reality that no one s karma can ever be separated from anyone else s since we are all one This also raises the problem of Krishna s existence that is Krishna comes to earth from tome to time when Dharma ebbs and this implies that at other times he is not here also if Krishna is within everyone s heart then why does Arjna not follow what his heart dictates rather than asking advice from someone else Since the demonic people have Krishna at their heart as well as the sages how are we justified in listening to the Krishna character alone unless you take him as the archetype of the totally awakened person Karma reincarnation and the appearance of Krishna in the guise of a prophet are fundamentally incompatible with the we are all one notion of the Upanisads It is my belief that the monsitic verses are the interpolation of some Vedantist who may have been a Vaishnava but at the same time preferred the monistic notion of reality But in the book this becomes a hopeless muddle2 Krishna takes for granted that women are inferior to men and that casteism is an apporpriate way to organise society This is idiocy to me and most modern Hindoos tend to downplay these verses but as usual Swami Know It All uses them to justify the oppression of women and lower caste peoples3 The concept of duty is emphasised to heavily I tend to think that the only real duty that one can have comes from the heart it is uniue to the individual whereas duty to Krishna seems mere conformity and the preservationof the status uo of society To my way of thinking this is fundamentally destructive and oppresive4 The notion that the sense must be under control does not make one tranuil Possibly this may be true if one has reached some sort of transcendental consciousness in which one goes beyond the limitations of normal consciousness and thus attains a peace that is far beyond what any ordinary pleasure could give But to suppress one s desires all this does is create a conflict between what one feels passion for and the prohibitions against them This will create turmoil and not relive it as it divides the mind into the repressive controller and that which has to be controlled thus dividing the Self against itself and creating mosery than peace5 The first 12 chapters seem to have been written by a different author than the second 6 There is an obvious degeneration of style and point of view The latter 13 of the book seems to be the product of some Samkhya philosopher bent on classifying everything accroding to the doctrine of the three gunas and Krishna in these chapters is seen as a rather cold nasty bloke referring to somepeople as inherently daemonic as he hurls them down again and again into infamy whereas in the previous 23 of the book Krishna was seen as a gentle accomodating deity that would regard even great sinners as saints if they worshipped him with a pure heart6 The war element is uite problematic The exhortations of Krishna to Arjuna to fight are unconvincing and usually illogical and inconsistent with the deeper message of the Gita Particularly absurd is the part where Krishna tries to shame Arjuna into fighting to save loss of face This strikes me as being very very immatureThese are among the many problems with the Gita but for the most part they do not take away much of it s beauty and they are for the most part universal throughout all the varied translations The real problem with this particular translation is the attitude of Prabhupada He manages to sustain a constant negative attutude towards the whole of existence and is a proponent of all that is the absolute worst in Hindoosism If you want to get a good grasp of exactly what has kept India in the bonds of casteism meaningless conformity to authority Prabhupada is about as arrogant as one can get especially for one who has supposedly conuered his ego He consistently reads his own prejudices into the book and contrary to the general spirit of Sanatana Dharma he is not at all tolerant or open minded to any deviations from his own ideas You either agree with whatever he says or you are a fool and a rascal his words by the way Like most other evangelistic fanatics only he can be right everyone else is headed for the fire Prabhupada s god is like the god of the Christians a ruthless tyrant in the sky who is bent on crushing indivuduality and making all of his follwers eternal subordinates If you hate your life and are looking at a good way to malign anyone who disagrees with you if you think only Brahmins are worthy of respect and all women are little better than dogs this tranlsation is the way to go If you are interested however in acheiving inner peace personal growth learning to be kind and understanding and understanding what life is all about you need to find other sources His commentaries are harsh and rife with the most idiotic of superstitions which usually go against all common sense decency and scientific knowledge All he does is warp Krishna s words into whatever prejudices he holds This book has been probably the biggest stumbling block for many people who would have otherwise been uite open to the wisdom found in the Gita

review Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB × learntopark.co.za Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (Paperback)

Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (Paperback) review Ð 3 T before entering battle the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder about the real meaning of his life Why should he fight against his friends and relatives Why does he exist Where is he going after death In the Bhagavad gita Lord Krsna Arjuna's friend and spiritual master brings His disciple from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment In the course. This book is a brilliant tour de force of spiritual realisation Brightly illuminating the deepest meanings of the text and making it very clear what Krishna was saying when he first spoke the Gita to Arjuna Prabhupada takes us by the hand and leads us to realms of unlimited bliss The evidence speaks for itself Prabhupada himself said that before he presented this translation and commentary there were over fifty English versions of the Gita available in the West and not a single person had become God conscious as a result of reading them the essential aim of the Gita However when his book appeared it started a worldwide movement of people who dedicated their lives to God The movement is still growing as thousands of people discover these wonderful teachinsg each year transforming their lives into a dynamic spiritual uest for the absolute Every day I study this book and am amazed by the ever deeper levels of transcendental knowledge it contains It is my manual for sanity and happiness Whenever things are difficult a dip into the pages of Prabhupada s Gita will throw everything into its proper perspective If I were to be cast away on some desert island with just one book this would be the one It is a veritable treasure chest of knowledge or as the Vedas themselves say a desire tree that can fulfil your every wish Buy it today
