Hare Krishna

We are all familiar with the story of Lord Krishna’s life. From his birth in a Mathura prison to his bringing up by his foster parents to his bal leelas as a child (that earned him the names such as Makhan chor, bal Gopal etc) to his killing of various demons to his final role as Arjuna’s charioteer in Mahabharata that formed the essence of Gita, his story is amongst the most popular folklores handed over by grandmas to grandkids. I will not tell this tale again but touch certain other aspects of Krishna’s life.

As his believers believe, he’s the only Godhead and all that he said and preached is encompassed in Bhagvad Gita that’s the holiest of the books. Gita forms the basis of the way we should live our lives on the path of virtuosity. As the world evolves, there’s increased realisation on the relevance of Bhagvad Gita, which is also now considered to be a doctrine of management. Without sounding religious or parochial and without any intent of demeaning any religion ( as my firm belief is that there are no superior or inferior religions and all religions of the universe have similar teaching and lead their respective followers down the same path) , I once heard a godman explaining the relevance and significance of Lord Krishna. He says no other religion claims to be following god – Jesus is son of God, Prophet Muhammad is God’s messenger, Lord Mahavir, Buddha and Guru Nanak have all preached the word of the God without claiming themselves to be gods. However, Bhagvad Gita clearly states that it’s contents comprise what the supreme godhead Lord Krishna told the mankind to follow as it is!

Leaving apart the matter of faith and belief, Janmashtami, the Birthday of our favourite Lord Krishna should be celebrated with joy and gaiety that is representative of his life.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare! Let’s all chant this moolmantra in praise of the supreme godhead on this holy day of Janmashtami!

Happy Janmashtami to all!

  1. Dear Sir,
    Jai Shri Krishna,
    I am enchanted and overwhelmed to know your intent and faith in Lord Krishna and above all in the relevance of Bhagwad Geeta. So long, I have been knowing you as an economist and an expert in financial management. I am surprised to learn about your command and interest in spiritual matter.
    You have rightly pointed out the relevance of Bhagavad Gita. In fact, it is an eternal Epic recognised universally as a magnificent religious record.

    We all know that life is a series of challenges. Moment to moment, we are faced with decision to do or not to do. Our intellect is called upon at each moment to evaluate independently and come to a judgement. Here helps the teaching of Bhagavad Gita to guide us in our mundane confusions and problems. We are really indebted to this epic.

    Kindly keep in regular touch and enlighten us with your profound knowledge and positivity in life.

    Regards
    Deepak Rungta
