Krishna's Teachings


As the evening rolls, a fireside book on Bhagavad Gita, translated by Nikhilananda of the Ramakrishna Mission in 1980's

When Krishna spoke of his philosophy to his peers Arjuna, Yudhishthira and his devotee Uddaloga, constraints such as religion and spirituality were not present. He spoke on what made sense both in the worldly and the metaphysical universe.

The Vedic order was on the verge of disintegration, then. Crime was at its peak, morality was down to the pit. He spoke of reformation. Vyas transcribed it.

The motivation to write on Krishna's philosophy is something internal which I find hard to explain in words; compounded with the scare of present digital cultural explosion that compels us to worship “the material,” superseding the most natural predisposition within us - a sublime connection to the divine. The essence of Krishna’s philosophy lies in its simplicity and reinforcement through building blocks of axioms to arrive at the complex.

Krishna network is a web-app-in-progress. Several years ago, I made my first effort with little success. Only after research and practice, and dispensing the nonessential words, I re-share the findings with you.

"In the form of a fish, when the flood of dissolution struck this world, with no effort did you clasp the revealed knowledge of the Vedas and kept them afloat."

Jayadeva ~1200 CE, Geeta Govinda (Sanskrit: गीत गोविन्द).

May the impeccable Mahabharata lotus,

That grows in gentle streams of Vyasa's words

Let it destroy the sins of the present Yuga

Of which Bhagavad Gita forms an irresistible fragrance

So many tales of noble heroes and maidens

Lettered by a discourse on Lord Hari

Light’s nectar sought-after by a swarm of bees

Just like the joyous men of plenty

Mahabharata bestows on us the highest good

I salute my brother Lord Krishna

An embodiment of the Supreme Bliss

By his grace, even the mute speaks eloquent

And, the lame scales the mountains

I salute the burnished Veda lords

Bramha, Rudra, Varuna, Indra and Marut

Their glories proclaimed by us bards

Sung in verses and chapters of Veda scripts

Their limits unknown to hosts of gods and demons
