Class 27: Four questions one should ask themselves if they wish to apply the Gita in their lives (chapter 4 verses 10 to 13)

This class covers:

  • How to see the good of everything in the world: how Yuddhisthir beat Duryodhana in the test given to them by Drona.
  • How the American President Roosevelt always looked an the example of Lincoln when difficult circumstances arose in his life.
  • How to behave as if God would behave. The meaning of the mantra Krushnam Vande Jagadgurum. The Guru of the whole Universe: what ShreeKrushna's life teaches us from His life.
  • Why the Jain religion gives so much importance to the word vitaraag (free from attachment). How to be free of attachment (as opposed to attraction and repulsion). The story of Yagnyavalkya and His two wives and what this teaches about being free of attachment.
  • How Buddha's disciple demonstrated his purity to the other disciples at an event during the monsoon season.
  • Four questions one should ask themselves if they wish to apply the Gita to their lives.
  • Are you the master or the servant? How Birbal outwitted Akbar at the dinner table
  • How to win over your anger. The person who resided in the mountains for years to get rid of his anger but it came out upon his return
  • How this world is a big echo point. Whatever you send to the world; the world will send the exact same thing back to you. The story in the Srimad Bhagavad of when Nāradji went to Dvārika.
  • Explanation of the varna system (not the caste system). Eliminating the biggest misunderstanding in history once and for all. The root interests of Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Sudras. How do you find out which one of these you are? The story Alexander Fleming, the inventor of Penicillin.
  • How your varna (not caste) is not determined by birth but your nature. How Vishvamitra (born in a warriors' family) became a Brahmin who gave the world the Gayatri mantra.
  • A study of Plato's Republic and how the Greeks tried to organise society.
