Thought Of The Day

Then, inattention while chanting the Holy Name. You should chant this Hare Krsna and you should hear also. If your mind is acting, the mind is somewhere else, and you are chanting, that is an offence. You should hear, this is called, Samadhi. If you chant and hear then your mind is interlocked by hearing and chanting, this is samadhi. Samadhi means trance, trance means completely absorbed. So by hearing and chanting act in both ways you’ll be in trance, and that…

Introduction to the Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita is the song of God.



Some interpreters see the Bhagavad Gita as an allegorical fable and dismiss

the war completely as a literary device.



Comparing Kurukshetra to the body, they believe Arjuna symbolizes the

Jivatma (individual soul) and Krishna the Paramatma (supersoul). The

Kauravas with their opposing army, apparently represent the thousands of…
