Chapter 8 - The Yoga of Indestructible Brahma
Krishna explained to Arjuna, at the time o f death/quitting the body, a person remembers the
supreme personality of god as goal, then he achieves him, similarly he who meditates on Krishna
and constantly engage himself in remembering the supreme personality of god- reaches him, like
that the one who reads Vedas and follows all the rules and guidance set by them also reaches him
(if that’s their goal), the same is for the one – who is dedicated his life in devotional service and
completely followed that as a medium to reach. Beyond all these, the one who understand
supreme personality, as old, as controller, as small, as largest, beyond the material, beyond
conception, seeing him as sun, moon and everything and live as yogin also reaches him.
Krishna has explained the practice of Yoga, on how to close eyes and think of the central point
of in between eyes and thinking about god with the syllable of “Om” chanting, can help in
achieving perfection. Similarly he explained the calculation of days and nights for Brahma and
for human, and he told - by period and day /night, when one can make the birth less state.
However the one who firmly believes in supreme god and at the time of death, who only thinks
of him, will reach Krishna – the supreme personality of God.
“Our Life: The very famous question, if tonight the world is going to be destroyed by a comet
(think, NASA missed this ) and there is no chance for USA, Russia or China to send their
missiles to destroy it in the middle air, and it’s official now, that you have only 2 hours with
you….. What will you do next...? Many of us would like to have our final wish fulfilled, some in
bars, some with family, some in roads, some in crying, some in phone, some in love, some with
holy book & in church/temple/mosque, etc praying that it should not end today (basically asking
god to do some magic to save them, so another few years they can lead their great life )… Not
most of them are expected to be in a state of prayer which leads only to him and not thinking on
anything else, instead many will be still searching for final set of happiness or pleasure or
handling fear through pleasure or engage in action which makes them forget themselves.
Interestingly not many of us are sure, whether instead of fulfilling materialistic or human
desires, we will be realizing god!
The one who is studying the holy books or praying in the holy place, they are still searching god
outside in a paper (words) or in a place. There is nothing wrong with it. However the moment
you search god outside, the path is huge and it has no end. Many of them want to see god in a
form or in an action, or in nature, or in a place… We think god has to come in front of us… Why
should he come? …. God is inside you, if he is the super soul and has made all these souls, and
all these souls are part of him, then your soul is the place where god resides... Don’t search him
outside... You may never find him! Let the moment be anything, he is there with you and he never
leaves you… You be having tea, eating meat , helping someone, wounded, or working, let you do
whatsoever, at every moment and at any time, he is there with you! We think only in a particular
place he lives or he resides, that’s nothing other than lack of awareness. He never leaves you
