Chapter 15 - The Yoga of Supreme Being
Krishna told Arjuna that the Vedas talk about a banyan tree, which is upside down, where the
roots are grown up and the branches are coming down, the upper part of the roots are the Vedas
and the branches are the three characteristics (Gunas) and the roots which are growing downward
reaches the human society, none of the people are aware it’s start and end, but one has to
understand that they have to cut the branches of these trees with the weapon called detachment to
reach the supreme god. Krishna went ahead and told, All the living entities in the world are my
parts, due to the senses and the characteristics they lead a life in a conception and based on that
life, they carry the aroma (with the soul) and enters into the new body. With the new body, the
individual attains a new variety of ears, eye, tongue, nose and senses, etc. Based on the new
senses and mind the body again performs actions. The ignorant will not understand his current
life, his body and the characteristics he has, nor can he understand how his soul can reach a new
body. However the one who is in self realization can understand this clearly. The splendor of
sun, moon and fire falls from me, I enter into each planet, I keep them in orbit, I am the fire of

The fingerprints of 500+ crore people are different, and the previous generation of 400 crore
people was different and it’s the same for all the previous generation. In fact this is the true
unique id every human is holding! Same is for the eye pupil. Why can’t they be the same, even at
least randomly, why they never the same?!! How such a unique design is possible, though with
bare eye, they all look same within that 1.5* 1.5 cm thumb... Similarly we say 7 people look same
in the world, at least till now we haven't seen anyone in the same way, even the twins born with
certain differences. Who is the creator or designer for this?! Don’t worry about cloning, that’s
still done by using the same cells of a person...it’s a Xerox technique...
Similarly we all read Darwin’s rule about evolution, and I personally like it and consider it.
What I like about it, is the relationship it has brought about on the nearby species in a table.
However it doesn't say that the evolution's happened without any supreme power...it can’t also...
in every period of world the god has taken different forms and different kind of animals where
there and even human may not exist also in there... In last 2000 years at least we have our
history is clear, but we have not seen any evolution, we never heard a new type of animal is
