In this post, Slokas From Gita (Nos.26-27)(Ch.2), the text of Bhagavat Gita narrated. Slokas From Gita (Nos.26-27)(Ch.2) consists of the 26th and 27th Slokas of CH.2. Observing the Army on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra from the Gita. 

 

Bhagavad Gita or Gitopanisad is one of the most important Upanishad. Bhagavad Gita is the philosophy of life narrated and explained by Lord Krsna to his devotee and friend Arjuna.

Gita (Nos.26-27)(Ch.2)

26

Gita (Nos.26-27)(Ch.2)

atha cainam nitya-jatam
nityam va manyase mrtam
tathapi tvam maha-baho
nainam socitum arhasi

 

If you think that the soul is born again and again and always dies, still you have no reason to lament.

 

There is usually a category of philosophers, nearly comparable to the Buddhists, who do now no longer agree with the separate life of the soul beyond the body.

Mahavarata

In present-day science and scientific warfare, a lot of chemical substances wasted for accomplishing victory over the enemy.  So, in any case, whether Arjuna accepted or not accepted the Vedic concept that there’s an atomic soul,  he had no cause to lament. According to this idea, since there are such a lot of living entities producing out of matter each moment, and so a lot of them vanquished each moment, there’s no want to grieve for such an incidence.  Being a ksatriya, Arjuna belonged to the Vedic culture, and its responsibility of him to observe its principles.

27

Gita (Nos.26-27)(Ch.2)

jatasya hi dhruvo mrtyur
dhruvam janma mrtasya ca
tasmad apariharye ‘rthe
na tvam socitum arhasi

If after all this knowledge you think that soul can have a rebirth, it can die, even in that situation, you have no reason to weep, O mighty-armed.

 

There is usually a category of philosophers, nearly comparable to the Buddhists, who now no longer agree with the separate life of the soul beyond the body. When Lord Krsna spoke the Bhagavad-gita, it seems that such philosophers existed and have been referred to as the Lokayatikas and Vaibhasikas. These philosophers maintained that life signs and symptoms, or soul, take place at a certain mature circumstance of material combination.

 

Krsna and Arjuna

The present-day material scientist and materialist philosophers also assume similarly. According to them, the body is a combination of bodily elements, and at a sure stage, the life signs and symptoms expand through the interplay of the bodily and chemical elements. The technology of anthropology is based on this philosophy. Currently, many pseudo-religions—now turning fashionable in America—also are adhering to this philosophy, in addition to the nihilistic nondevotional Buddhist sects.

Even if Arjuna did now no longer believe in the existence of the soul—as withinside the Vaibhasika philosophy—there might still be no reason for lamentation. No one laments the loss of a certain bulk of chemical substances and prevents discharging his prescribed duty. On the alternative hand, in present-day science and scientific warfare, a lot of lots of chemical substances  wasted for accomplishing victory over the enemy. According to the Vaibhasika philosophy, the so-called soul or atma vanishes together with the deterioration of the body.

 

 

So, in any case, whether or not Arjuna accepted the Vedic conclusion that there’s an atomic soul, or whether or not he did now no longer agree with the existence of the soul, he had no cause to lament. According to this idea, since there are such a lot of living entities producing out of matter each moment, and so a lot of them are being vanquished each moment, there’s no want to grieve for such an incidence. However, since he was not risking the rebirth of the soul, Arjuna had no cause to be terrified of being affected with sinful reactions because of his killing his grandfather and teacher. As a ksatriya, Arjuna belonged to the Vedic culture, and it behooved him to preserve to observe its principles.

In this post, Slokas From Gita (Nos.23-25)(Ch.2), the text of Bhagavat Gita narrated. Slokas From Gita (Nos.23-25)(Ch.2) consists of the 20th Slokas of CH.2. Observing the Army on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra from the Gita. 

 

Bhagavad Gita or Gitopanisad is one of the most important Upanishad. Bhagavad Gita is the philosophy of life narrated and explained by Lord Krsna to his devotee and friend Arjuna.

Gita (Nos.23-25)(Ch.2)

23

Gita (Nos.23-25)(Ch.2)

nainam chindanti sastrani
nainam dahati pavakah
na cainam kledayanty apo
na sosayati marutah

 

The soul can never be cut into pieces by any weapon, nor can he be burned by fire, moistened by water, or withered by the wind.

 

All types of weapons, swords, flames, rains, tornadoes, etc., are not able to kill the spirit soul. It seems that there had been many types of weapons made from earth, water, air, ether, etc., further to the present-day weapons of fire. Even the nuclear weapons of the present-day age classified as fire weapons, however previously there had been other weapons made from all different sorts of material elements.

Firearms had been counteracted with the aid of using water guns, which now unknown to trendy science. Nor do present-day scientists have the expertise of tornado weapons. Nonetheless, the soul can in no way be reduced into pieces, nor annihilated with the aid of using any number of weapons, no matter scientific devices.

Nor was it ever feasible to reduce the person’s soul from the original Soul. The Mayavadi, however, can not describe how the person soul developed from lack of knowledge and therefore has become covered with the aid of using illusory energy. Because they’re atomic person souls (sanatana) forever, they’re liable to be covered with the aid of using the illusory energy, and therefore they end up separated from the association of the Supreme Lord, simply because the sparks of the fire, even though one in quality with the fire, are liable to be extinguished while out of the fire.

Mahavarat

In the Varaha Purana, the living entities defined as separated elements and parcels of the Supreme. They forever so, consistent with the Bhagavad-gita also. So, even after being liberated from illusion, the living entity stays a separate identity, as obvious from the teachings of the Lord to Arjuna. Arjuna has become liberated by the knowledge acquired from Krsna, however, he in no way has become one with Krsna.

 

 

24

Gita (Nos.23-25)(Ch.2)

acchedyo ‘yam adahyo ‘yam
akledyo ‘sosya eva ca
nityah sarva-gatah sthanur
call ‘yam sanatanah

This individual soul is everlasting and indissoluble and can be neither destroyed by fire nor dried.

 

All types of weapons, swords, flames, rains, tornadoes, etc., are not able to kill the spirit soul. It seems that there had been many types of weapons made from earth, water, air, ether, etc., further to the present-day weapons of fire.

Even the nuclear weapons of the present day age classified as fire weapons, however previously there had been other weapons made from all different sorts of material elements. Firearms had been counteracted with the aid of using water guns, which now unknown to trendy science. Nor do present-day scientists have the expertise of tornado weapons. Nonetheless, the soul can in no way be reduced into pieces, nor annihilated with the aid of using any number of weapons, no matter scientific devices.

Nor was it ever feasible to reduce the person’s soul from the original Soul. The Mayavadi, however, can not describe how the person soul developed from lack of knowledge and therefore has become covered with the aid of using illusory energy. Because they atomic person souls (sanatana) forever, they liable to be covered with the aid of using the All those qualifications of the atomic soul virtually show that the individual soul  endlessly the atomic particle of the spirit whole, and he stays the same atom endlessly, without change.

The principle of monism may be very hard to use in this case, due to the fact the individual soul is by no means predicted to become one homogeneously. After liberation from material contamination, the atomic soul may also choose to continue to be as a religious spark in the effulgent rays of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, however, the smart souls enter into the religious planets to accomplice with the Personality of Godhead.

The phrase sarva-gatah (all-pervading) is extensive because there may be no question that living entities are all over God’s creation. They stay on the land, in the water, in the air, within the earth, or even within the fire. The notion that they sterilized in fire not acceptable, due to the fact it is without a doubt said right here that the soul can not be burned by fire. Therefore it concluded that there are living entities also on the planet with appropriate bodies to stay there. If the sun globe is uninhabited, then the phrase Sarva-gatah—living everywhere—will become meaningless.

25

Gita (Nos.23-25)(Ch.2)

avyakto ‘yam acintyo ‘yam
avikaryo ‘yam ucyate
tasmad evam viditvainam
nanusocitum arhasi

 

It is known that the soul is inconspicuous, unimaginable, fixed, and unalterable. Knowing this, you should not weep for the body.

 

As defined previously, the importance of the soul is so small for our material calculation that he can’t be visible even by the maximum powerful microscope; therefore, he’s invisible. As far as the soul’s life is concerned, no person can set up his life experimentally beyond the evidence of sruti or Vedic wisdom. We need to accept this truth, due to the fact, that there may be no other source of knowledge about the existence of the soul, even though it is a truth by perception.

There are many things we need to accept totally on grounds of superior authority. Nobody denies the existence of his father, based on the authority of his mother. There is no other source of knowledge on the identification of the father besides the authority of the mother. Similarly, there may be no other source of knowledge of the soul besides studying the Vedas. In other words, the soul is improbable by human experimental knowledge.

Krsna and Arjuna

The soul is consciousness and conscious—that is also the assertion of the Vedas, and we need to accept that. Unlike the bodily changes, there may be no change in the soul. As endlessly unchangeable, the soul stays atomic in comparison to the limitless Supreme Soul. The Supreme Soul is limitless, and the atomic soul is infinitesimal.

Therefore, the infinitesimal soul, being unchangeable, can by no means come to be the same as the infinite soul, or the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This idea repeated in the Vedas in different approaches simply to verify the stability of the idea of the soul. Repetition of something is important so that we apprehend the problem very well without error.

Temples of India is the integral part of all Indians daily life. Indians some how or other are influenced by the temples of India. But how the temples of India have become so important to the life of the Indians?

 

Ancient Indian thought divides time into four distinct periods. These periods are referred to as Krta; Treta; Dvapara; and Kali.

The first of these divisions (Krita) is Satya-Yuga or the Age of Truth. It was a golden age without violence, malice, or deceit, characterized by righteousness. All men were of one caste, and there was only one God who dwelt among men as one of them.

In the next age (Treta Yuga) the righteousness of the previous age is reduced by a quarter. The main quality of this era was knowledge. The gods had little presence and descended to earth only when men invited them to perform rituals and sacrifices. This god was recognized by all.

In the third great division of time, righteousness existed to half its extent in the first division. In this era, diseases, misery, and caste have arisen. The gods multiplied. Men made their idols, worshiped them, and the gods would descend in disguised form. But these disguised deities are known only to that worshipper.

Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva worshiping Goddess Kali

Kaliyuga is the present age of mankind in which we live, the first three ages having already passed. It is believed that this age began between midnight on February 17 and 18, 3102 BC. Righteousness is now one-tenth of the first age. True worship and sacrifice are now lost. It is a time of anger, lust, passion, pride, and conflict. There is an excessive preoccupation with material and sexual matters.

Only in the Kali Yuga did temples appear on the horizon. At the last stage of this existence, temples (as public places of worship), built and icons began to be installed. But the gods stopped coming down and appeared in their person or disguise. However, their presence could be felt when the icons were properly placed and the temples were properly built. Unlike earlier times when the gods were equally available to all, now only the priests, belonging to a traditional hierarchy of professional worshippers, were the appropriate persons to enforce this presence.

From a contemporary perspective, temples serve as safe havens where ordinary people like us can feel free from the constant turmoil of daily existence and commune with God personally. But our age is individualism if nothing else. Each of us needs our concept of God based on our cultural roots. In this context it is interesting to note that both the words ‘temple’ and ‘contemplation’ share the same origin from the Roman word ‘temple’, meaning a sacred enclosure. Strictly speaking, where there is no meditation, there is no temple.

It is an irony of our age that this individualistic contemplative factor associated with the temple is regarded as its highest positive quality, although legend has it that it is a limitation that arose out of our continued spiritual impoverishment through the ages. We have lost the divine who lived within us (Krta Yuga), which is the same as when the man himself was divine.

But this is not to belittle the importance of temples as centers of spiritual nourishment in our present context, but rather a testament to their invaluable importance in providing support to modern man in an environment and manner that suits the general needs of the age. which we exist.

The Shringeri Sharadamba Temple (Shringa Giri in Sanskrit) at Sringeri is an 8th-century temple, founded by Sri Adi Shankaracharya.

The idol was not installed.

On the day of Vyasa Puja, the Jagadguru first worships Sri Sharadambala in the morning, visits other temples, and then performs Vyasa Puja in the presence of his disciples at Narasimhavanam. If Sri Adi Shankara is considered to be an incarnation of Shiva, then Sringeri Jagadguru is considered to be an incarnation of both Shiva and Vishnu. Visiting the Jagadguru of Sringeri during the months of Chaturmas is considered very auspicious.

In this post, Slokas From Gita (Nos.21-22)(Ch.2), the text of Bhagavat Gita narrated. Slokas From Gita (Nos.21-22)(Ch.2) consists of the 20th Slokas of CH.2. Observing the Army on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra from the Gita. 

 

Bhagavad Gita or Gitopanisad is one of the most important Upanishad. Bhagavad Gita is the philosophy of life narrated and explained by Lord Krsna to his devotee and friend Arjuna.

Gita (Nos.21-22)(Ch.2)

21

Gita (Nos.21-22)(Ch.2)

vedavinasinam nityam
ya enam ajam avyayam
katham sa purusah partha
kam ghatayati hanti kam

 

 

O Partha, when one knows that the soul is immortal, indestructible, cannot be reborn, eternal, how can he kill a person or cause anyone to kill?

 

Everything has its right utility, and a person who’s located in whole knowledge is aware of how and wherein to use a thing for its right utility. Similarly, violence also has its utility, and a way to observe violence rests with the individual in knowledge. Although the justice of the peace awards capital punishment to a person condemned for murder, the justice of the peace can not be blamed due to the fact he orders violence against any other individual in line with the codes of justice.

Mahavarata

In Manu-Samhita, the lawbook for mankind, it supported that an assassin ought to be condemned to demise so that in his subsequent life he’s going to now no longer should suffer for the great sin he has committed. Therefore, the king’s punishment of hanging an assassin is surely beneficial.

Similarly, while Krsna orders fighting, it needs to be concluded that violence for ultimate justice, and, as such, Arjuna ought to observe the instruction, understanding well that such violence, committed withinside the act of fighting for Krsna. No violence in any respect due to the fact, at any rate, the man, or rather the soul, can not be destructed; so so-called violence is justified.

Surgery not intended to kill the patient, however, to cure him. Therefore, the fighting to be carried out by Arjuna on the instruction of Krsna with complete knowledge, so there’s no possibility of a sinful reaction.

 

22

Gita (Nos.21-22)(Ch.2)

vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya
navani grhnati naro ‘parani
tatha sarirani vihaya jirnany
anyani samyati navani dehi

 

The soul changes the old and useless body and is absorbed in a new material body, similar to we discard an old cloth and using a new one.

 

 

Change of body through the atomic one soul is a well-known fact. Even a number of the present-day scientists who do now no longer accept as true the existence of the soul, however on the same time can’t give an explanation for the source of strength from the heart, must accept continuous adjustments of the body which seem from childhood to boyhood and from boyhood to adolescents and once more from adolescents to old age.

From old age, the extrude  transferred to any other body. This already defined in the preceding verse.

Krsna and Arjuna

 

Transference of the atomic individual soul to any other body  made feasible by the grace of the Supersoul. The Supersoul fulfills the choice of the atomic soul as one friend fulfills the choice of any other.

This can be explained this way by the soul and the Supersoul to two birds sitting at the same tree.

While one of them (the single atomic soul) is eating the fruit of the tree, and the other bird (Krsna) is observing His friend. Of those birds—even though they’re the same in quality—one captivated through the fruits of the material tree, at the same time as the other simply witnessing the activities of His friend. Krsna is the witnessing bird, and Arjuna the consuming bird.

 

Although they’re friends, one continues to be the master and the other is the servant. Forgetfulness of this relationship by the atomic soul is the reason for one’s converting his position from one tree to any other or from one body to any other. The jiva soul is suffering very hard at the tree of the material body, however, as soon as he agrees to simply accept the alternative bird because the supreme religious master—as Arjuna agreed to do by voluntary give up unto Krsna for instruction—the subordinate bird at once turns into free from all lamentations. Both the Katha Upanisad and Svetasvatara Upanisad affirm this:

samane vrkse puruso nimagno

‘nisaya socati muhyamanah

justam yada pasyaty anyam isam asya

mahimanam iti vita-sokah

 

“Although the two birds withinside the same tree, the eating bird  completely engrossed with tension and moroseness because of the enjoyer of the fruits of the tree.

But if in a few ways or other he turns his face to his friend who’s the Lord and is aware of His glories—immediately the struggling bird turns into free from all anxieties.” Arjuna has now turned his face toward his eternal friend, Krsna, and is understanding the Bhagavad-gita from Him.

 

And thus, listening to Krsna, he can understand the excellent glories of the Lord and be free from lamentation.

 

Arjuna suggested herewith by the Lord now no longer to lament for the bodily change of his old grandfather and his teacher. He has to rather be satisfied to kill their bodies in the righteous battle in order that they will be cleansed immediately of all reactions from numerous bodily activities.

 

One who lays down his life at the sacrificial altar, or withinside the proper battlefield, is immediately cleansed of bodily reactions and promoted to a better status of life. So, there has been no reason for Arjuna’s lamentation.

Though no idol here in this temple, it known that ‘Ugra Tara’, known for its fierce and fearful form. This form of Goddess is very fierce and fearful, on top of a flaming pyre, Shiva in the form of a corpse, or Shiva in the form of consciousness, the Goddess is standing in an anticipatory posture.

Whatever knowledge spread here and there in the entire universe, when they gather together, the form of this goddess formed and all that knowledge is the original form of this goddess, due to which one of her names is also Neel-Saraswati.

The abode of the goddess is the ghastly maha-crematorium, where the pyre is always burning and on top of the fiery pyre, the goddess is standing naked or wearing a bagambar. The goddess adorned with garlands of skulls and bones and wears snakes as ornaments. The three-eyed goddess appears to be extremely fearful in her fiery star form.

 

Legend of Ugratara Temple, Guwahati

Various legends related to the Ugratara temple  circulated among the public. The temple considered an important Shakti Peeth by many believers. According to mythological tradition, Goddess Sati immolated herself after insulting her father Daksha in a yagna. Lord Shiva in agony and sorrow, carried the burnt body of Sati to the whole universe and then performed Tandava (dance of destruction).

Seeing this many deities got scared and ran to Lord Vishnu for help. Vishnu listened to their prayer and with his Sudarshana Chakra broke Sati’s body into pieces and she fell to the earth. It said that the navel of Sati fell at this place, where the Ugratara temple situated.

Different descriptions of Shaktipeeths found in different Puranas. According to Kalika Purana, the major Shakti Peethas centered on and around the famous Kamakhya Shakti Peeth. One of that peethas called Dikkara Vasini. Two known forms worshiped among the devotees of Dikkara Vasini, Tikshna Kantha, and Lalita Kantha. The sharp throat said to be black and mushy and also called Ugratara or Ekajata. Ugratara Temple Guwahati, dedicated to this form of Dikkara Vasini.

Ugratara Temple

According to another legend, it said that Yama, the god of death, complained to Lord Brahma about no human coming to hell from Kamrup because of the purity of the Kamrup region. Yama said that people are not sent to hell even after committing a sin.

Lord Brahma then took this command to Vishnu who then took it to Shiva. Lord Shiva then ordered Goddess Ugratara to drive away all the people living in Kamakhya. Goddess Ugratara then sent her army to bring the people. On their way, the army placed its hand on sage Vashishta, who became enraged as his attention was getting distracted and cursed Goddess Ugratara and Lord Shiva.

From then on, all the Vedic sadhanas thus performed were abandoned in Kamarupa and Goddess Ugratara became the goddess of Vamachar practice and thereafter her entire army became Mlechha. Goddess Ugratara is also associated with Buddhism. It is popular as a Shakta shrine and the deities themselves are associated with Ek-Jata and Tika-Kanta.

In this post, Slokas From Gita (No.20)(Ch.2), the text of Bhagavat Gita narrated. Slokas From Gita (No.20)(Ch.2) consists of the 20th Slokas of CH.2. Observing the Army on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra from the Gita. 

 

Bhagavad Gita or Gitopanisad is one of the most important Upanishad. Bhagavad Gita is the philosophy of life narrated and explained by Lord Krsna to his devotee and friend Arjuna.

Gita (No.20)(Ch.2)

20

Gita (No.20)(Ch.2)

na jayate mriyate va kadacin
nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah
ajo nityah sasvato ‘yam purano
na hanyate hanyamane sarire

 

 

The soul does not take birth or die, he cannot be killed when the body is killed.

 

The Supreme tiny soul undergoes no modifications just like the body. Sometimes the soul is known as the steady, or kutastha. The body undergoes 6 types of transformations. It takes its birth in the womb of the mother’s body, stays for a few times, grows, produces a few effects, step by step dwindles, and at ultimate vanishes into oblivion.

Mahavarat

The soul, however, does now no longer undergo such modifications. It is not born, however, due to the fact he is taking on a material body, the body takes its birth. The soul does now no longer takes birth there, and the soul does now no longer die. All living entities- have death. And due to the fact the soul has no birth, he, consequently, has no past, present, or future. He is eternal, ever-existing, and primeval—that is, there may be no trace withinside the history of his getting into being.

Under the influence of the body, we are trying to find the history of birth, etc., of the soul. The soul does now no longer at any time come to be vintage because the body does. The so-called old person, therefore, feels himself to be withinside the equal spirit as in his childhood or youth. The modifications of the body do now no longer have an effect on the soul. The soul does not have any decay like any other material.

The soul has no derivative either. With the aid of using prod

ucts of the body, specifically kids, also are different individual souls; and, as a result of the body, they seem as kids of a particular person. The body develops due to the soul’s presence, however, the soul has neither offshoots nor modifications. Therefore, the soul is free from the six modifications of the body.

 

The soul is full of knowledge or full constantly with focus. So, the symptom of the soul is consciousness. Even if one does now no longer locate the soul within the heart, in which he’s located, you can nevertheless apprehend the presence of the soul without a doubt with the aid of using the presence of consciousness.

 

Sometimes we do not find the sun in the sky because of clouds, or for a few different reasons, however, the light of the sun is continually there, and we’re convinced that it is therefore daytime. As soon as there may be a little light withinside the sky early in the morning, we will apprehend that the sun is withinside the sky.

Similarly, because there may be a few consciousnesses in all bodies—whether or not person or animal—we will apprehend the presence of the soul. This consciousness of the soul is, however, extraordinary from the consciousness of the Supreme due to the fact the supreme consciousness is all-knowledge—past, present, and future. The consciousness of the person’s soul is at risk of being forgetful.

When he’s forgetful of his actual nature, he obtains training and enlightenment from the superior training of Krsna. But Krsna isn’t always just like the forgetful soul. If so, Krsna’s teachings of Bhagavad-gita could be useless.

Krsna and Arjuna

There are  types of souls—specifically the minute particle soul (anu-atma) and the Supersoul (the vibhu-atma). This is also showed in the Katha Upanisad on this way:

anor aniyan mahato mahiyan

atmasya jantor nihito guhayam

tam akratuh pasyati vita-soko

dhatuh prasadan mahimanam atmanah

 

“Both the Supersoul [Paramatma] and the atomic soul [jivatma] are located at the same tree of the body withinside the same heart of the living being, and the only person who has to end up free from all material desires, in addition to lamentations, can, by the grace of the Supreme, recognize the glories of the soul.

In this post, Slokas From Gita (Nos.18-19)(Ch.2), the text of Bhagavat Gita narrated. Slokas From Gita (No.18-19)(Ch.2) consists of the 18th and 19th Slokas of CH.2. Observing the Army on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra from the Gita. 

 

Bhagavad Gita or Gitopanisad is one of the most important Upanishad. Bhagavad Gita is the philosophy of life narrated and explained by Lord Krsna to his devotee and friend Arjuna.

Gita (Nos.18-19)(Ch.2)

18

Gita (Nos.18-19)(Ch.2)

antavanta ime deha
nityasyoktah saririnah
anasino ‘prameyasya
tasmad yudhyasva bharata

 

Because the material body of an eternal living entity is destructible, O ancestor of Bharata therefore, fight.

 

The body is perishable. It may also perish immediately, or it can accomplish that after 100 years. There is no possibility of preserving it indefinitely. But the spirit soul is so minute that it can’t also be visible by an enemy, to mention nothing of being killed. As stated in the preceding verse, it’s so small that no person will have any idea how to measure its dimension.

Durydhona stripting Draupadi

So, from each viewpoint, there’s no reason for lamentation due to the fact the living entity can neither be killed as he’s nor can the material body, which can’t be saved for any period of time, be completely protected.

 

The minute particle of the entire spirit acquires this material body consistent with his work, and consequently observance of spiritual ideas ought to be utilized. In the Vedanta-sutras the living entity is qualified as mild because he is a part and parcel of the supreme light. As sunlight keeps the whole universe alight, so the light of the soul keeps this material body enlighten. As quickly as the spirit soul is out of this material body, the body starts to decompose; consequently, it is the spirit soul which keeps this body.

The body has got no importance. Arjuna recommended combat and sacrificing the material body for the purpose of religion.

 

19

Gita (Nos.18-19)(Ch.2)

ya enam vetti hantaram
yas cainam manyate hatam
ubhau tau na vijanito
nayam hanti na hanyate

 

One may think that of killing a living entity, he does not understand that one sucider cannot be killed.

 

When an embodied living entity is hurt through deadly weapons, it is to be acknowledged that the living entity in the body isn’t always killed. The spirit soul is so small that it is not possible to kill him through any material weapon, as is obvious from the preceding verses. Nor is the living entity killable due to his religious constitution. What is killed, or is meant to be killed, is the body only.

Krishna convincing Arjuna to fight

The Vedic order is, “mahimsyat sarva-bhutani” cannot commit violence to anyone. Nor does knowing that the living entity isn’t always killed inspire animal slaughter. Killing the body of all of us without authority is abominable and is punishable by the law of the country in addition to – the law of the Lord. Arjuna, however, is being engaged in killing for the principle of religion and is now no longer whimsically.

Know that which spread of the entire body indestructible. The soul not destructible.

 

This text more honestly explains the actual nature of the soul, that unfolds everywhere in the body. Anyone can recognize what’s unfolding everywhere in the body: it consciousness. This spreading of consciousness  restrained inside one’s very own body.  Therefore, each and everybody the embodiment of a man or woman’s soul, and the symptom of the soul’s presence  perceived as a man or woman’s consciousness. This soul defined as one ten-thousandth a part of the top part of the hair point in size.

Mahavarat

Therefore, the individual particle of the spirit soul is a religious atom smaller than the material atoms, and such atoms are innumerable. This very small religious spark is the fundamental precept of the material body, and they have an effect on this sort of religious spark is unfold all around the frame because the has an impact on the active precept of some medication spreads all through the body. This current of the spirit soul  felt all around the body as consciousness, and this is evidence of the presence of the soul. Any layman can apprehend that the material body minus attention a lifeless body, and this consciousness can’t be revived in the body by any manner of material administration. Therefore, consciousness isn’t because of any quantity of material combination, but of the spirit soul. In the Mundaka Upanisad the measurement of the atomic spirit soul similarly explained:

 

“The soul is atomic in size and may be perceived through best intelligence. This atomic soul is floating in the 5 forms of air [prana, apana, vyana, samana and udana], is located in the heart, and spreads it has an impact all around the body of the embodied living entities. When the soul  purified from the contamination of the 5 forms of material air, its religious have an impact on exhibited.”

Krsna and Arjuna

The hatha-yoga system  supposed for controlling the 5 forms of air encircling the natural soul through distinctive forms of sitting postures—now no longer for any material profit.

So the constitution of the atomic soul admitted in all Vedic literature, and  also sincerely felt in the realistic experience of any sane individual. Only the insane individual can think about this atomic soul as an all-pervading Visnu-tattva.

Such atomic size particles of the spirit complete are in comparison to the sunshine molecules. Like sunshine which spread minute particles of energy Supreme Lord propagates rays of energy called Prabha or superior energy.
