Chapter 7- The Yoga of Wise Understanding
Krishna told Arjuna that he created Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intellect and egoism and
above all he created the life itself. All this is woven on him, like a cluster of gems in a string. He
went ahead and told, the taste of water, light of the moon, the syllable “Om” in the Vedas,
fragrance of the earth, life in all, the intelligence of the intelligent and radiance of the radiant,
everything is being on him. The characteristics - Pure, active and inert are coming from supreme
power, but he is not in them, these are divine illusions and very hard to overcome, only the one,
who seek the supreme power will cross it. The distressed people, knowledge seeker, wealth
seeker and wise man all worship him, out of these the wise men, who seek only him is dearer to
him. I am in the formless and in many forms as gods, people pray to different forms and want to
achieve something and they go to achieve it. The one who believes in my supreme form reaches
me and he is the unborn and imperishable. Krishna knows the past, pres ent and the future and
him no one knows. The wise man at the time of departure (death) they pray to him and reach
him, not only them, even the sinner who prays to him at the end realizing this, also reaches him.
“Our Life: The Universe is one amazing place and it has so many wonderful creations! Yet if you
look at them closely, there is some pattern we can see. The smallest components like cells in a
body, atoms in a metal and the biggest element the universe, all of them has a nucleus (center) ,
free particles which move around , and well arranged particles like planet, electrons , etc. in a
distance away, circling around the nucleus in a field. Which shows, the base of all material
elements and living organisms have some commonalities. So when we read, god is in there in
everything, there is not much to surprise. Also as per Newton’s law (yes... the school theory,
which fetched easy marks!), the energy in this world can’t be created and cannot be destroyed,
but it can only be converted to a different class. When it’s a scientific theory, we don’t ask
questions, the same when it comes in a holy book, we ask… God is unborn and imperishable and
the same is for the soul, which are unborn and imperishable, but they can take different forms
with bodies… Science is nothing but a language used to study his creations, but science is
neither the god nor it can lead us to God. Only belief can take us to the supreme power”
