In this post, Slokas From Gita (Nos.40-41)(Ch.2), the text of Bhagavat Gita narrated. Slokas From Gita (Nos.40-41)(Ch.2) consists of the 40th and 41st Slokas of CH.2. Observing the Army on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra from the Gita.
pratyavayo na vidyate
sv-alpam apy asya dharmasya
trayate mahato bhayat
In this effort, there is no loss, and a little advanced approach on this path can protect one from the most dangerous type of fear.
Activity in Krsna consciousness, or performing for the benefit of Krsna with out expectation of sense gratification, is the very best transcendental quality of work. Even a small starting of such activity reveals no impediment, nor can that small starting be misplaced at any stage. Any work started at the material plane needs to be completed, otherwise, the complete attempt turns into a failure. But any work that began in Krsna consciousness has an everlasting effect, despite the fact that not finished. The performer of such work is hence not at a loss despite the fact that his work in Krsna consciousness is incomplete. One percentage accomplished in Krsna consciousness bears everlasting effects.
Ajamila did his duty in a few percent of Krsna consciousness, but the end result he loved on the end turned into 100%, by the grace of the Lord. There is a pleasant verse on this connection in Srimad-Bhagavatam:
tyaktva sva-dharmam caranambujam harer
bhajan na pakko ‘tha patet tato yadi
yatra kva vabhadram abhud amusya kim
ko vartha apto ‘bhajatam sva-dharmatah
Material activities and their consequences cease with the body. But work in Krsna consciousness consists of the individual once more to Krsna consciousness, even after the loss of the body. At least one is certain to have a chance in the subsequent life of being born once more as a human being, either in the family of a top-notch cultured brahmana or in a wealthy aristocratic family that will deliver one a further chance for promotion. The unique quality of work achieved in Krsna consciousness.
bahu-sakha hy anantas ca
Those are in the way of purpose determinedly, their aim is the same. O dearest child of the Kurus, those who are undefendable possess the intelligence of many folds.
A sturdy faith in Krsna consciousness that one must be extended to the very best perfection of life known as vyavasayatmika intelligence. The Caitanya-caritamrta states:
‘sraddha’-sabde visvasa kahe sudrdha niscaya
krsne bhakti kaile sarva-karma krta haya
Faith means unflinching belief in some thing sublime. When one engaged in the responsibilities of Krsna consciousness, he wants not to act in relation to the material world with duties to family traditions, humanity, or nationality. Fruitive activities are the engagements of one’s reactions to past right or wrong deeds. When one is awake in Krsna consciousness, he wants no longer endeavor for good outcomes in his activities. When one is located in Krsna consciousness, all activities are at the absolute plane. For they’re not at all in situations of dualities like right and wrong. When one attains the highest perfection of Krsna consciousness is the recovery of the material concept of life.
This state automatically done with the aid of using progressive Krsna consciousness. The resolute reason of someone in Krsna consciousness is based on knowledge (“Vasudevah sarvam iti sa mahatma sudurlabhah”) by which one involves realizing flawlessly that Vasudeva, or Krsna, is the foundation of all manifested causes.
Service in Krsna consciousness is, however, best practiced under the able guidance of a religious master who’s a bona fide representative of Krsna, who is aware of the character of the pupil and who can guide him to act in Krsna consciousness.
As such, to be well-versed in Krsna consciousness one has to act firmly and obey the representative of Krsna, and one must receive the guidance of the bona fide religious master as one’s task in life. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakur instructs us, in his well-known prayers for the religious master, as follows:
yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasado
yasyaprasadanna gatih kuto ‘pi
dhyayam stuvams tasya yasas tri-sandhyam
vande guroh sri-caranaravindam.
“By satisfaction of the religious master, the Supreme Personality of Godhead turns into glad. And by not fulfilling the religious master, there may be no chance of being promoted to the plane of Krsna consciousness. I must, therefore, meditate and pray for his mercy 3 instances a day, and provide my respectful obeisances unto him, my religious master.”
The whole process, however, relies upon ideal knowledge of the soul beyond the concept of the body—not theoretically but practically, whilst there may be a no longer chance for sense gratification manifested in fruitive activities. One who isn’t firmly fixed in mind diverted by diverse sorts of fruitive acts.
