The Gita ‘As It Is’ - A Travesty of Caste

By: BS Murthy

It can be said that the Gita as it is unmistakably propounds the caste system and unambiguously details the caste characteristics that is besides the earmarked social occupations / obligations of its members. Hence, one should ponder - would have Krishna chosen to reduce Shudras, his own people, literarily that is as Krishna himself was a Shudra, as menials even as Jehovah, having enabled the Jews to come out of slavery, made them his Chosen People!

The sore point to those at the rough-end-of-the-caste-stick in the ‘in vogue’ Gita (short description of the Bhagavad-Gita) is God Krishna’s alleged owning the creation of the very discriminatory caste system thus: chātur-varṇyaṁ mayā sruṣhṭaṁ guṇa-karma-vibhāgaśhaḥ tasya kartāram api māṁ viddhyakartāram avyayam (Ch 4 v 13) Well, the plain reading of this Sanskrit sloka indicates that based on the (human) qualities and (mundane) activates he had created the four varna...

By: Dada Bhagwan; Deepakbhai Desai, Editor

What obstructs the path of moksha (liberation)? Kashay. Attachment-abhorrence, anger-pride-deceit-greed; all these generate pain [to others and the self]. That itself is what is referred to as kashay. Param Pujya Dadashri says that attachment does not cause pain, but attachment is the seed of kashay. Seeds are sown through attachment, then when the result of that comes, abhorrence will arise on that day and through that, worldly life perpetuates. If the slightest of unfa...

אני פסיכה וארוס

By: בת-שבע שפירא

אורי ת טרופין: הנפש המתאוו ה לדָבָר והאהבה למילה : על אני פסיכה וארוס מאת : בת -שב ע שפירא בת-שבע שפירא כותבת "אני פסיכה וארוס". הטקסט שלה נטול סימני פיסוק ופתוח לדו-משמעות ולרב-משמעויות שהן לעתים סותרות, וכך גם הכותרת, המכילה רב-משמעיות זו בזעיר אנפין. כיצד יתכן שאני היא פסיכה וגם ארוס? הרי מדובר בשניים שלעולם לא יהיו לאחד – "כשני מקבילים כי רק כך היינו מסוגלים להמריא לגבהים או לצלול אל מעמקי אפלת-השאול בלא להתקרב כי רק כך יכולנו להתמשך זה לצד זה במרחק-קבוע לא נו...

פרולוג פסיכה פעם הוביל אותי אבי אל סלע-העקידה כפת אותי אליו והשאיר-אותי שם והלך בלי מילה בלי להעיף מבט-לאחור וכפיתה זו הותירה בי את חותמה הבלתי-מתכלה – ותם קשיות-הסלע / תהום הריק-הטובעני הקר המבט המנוכר משם נחטפתי בסערה והובאתי ונכבלתי אל מחוזותיו של מי שהיה אהובי -האפל ואהוב זה וחשכתו הטביעו בי את חותמם -שלהם ומאז מרוב טביעות והטבעות ומניעות והימנעויות וחבלות וניסיונות -השתחררות וקימות ונפילות נחרץ גופי צלקות-צלקות שהייתי ממשיכה וחורצת וחורטת בהן שוב ושוב ...

Dichotomy Between Hindu Religiosity ‘n Gita's Spirituality

By: BS Murthy

Owing to the all-pervading purānic narrative that is in tune with ¬¬the above, by and large, the Hindu religiosity has come to be steeped in propitiating the gods through assorted rituals and fervent prayers to avert adversity or for self-aggrandizement and /or both. It’s another matter though that in our materialistic time, it has further descended into a religious barter with gods, or worse, of seeking to bribe them that too only after they second man’s bidding! Hence...

Long before the advent of the Torah, not to speak of the Bible and the Quran that followed it, Brihadaranyaka Upanishad had it that “.. since he (man) created gods who are better than he: and also because, being mortal, he created immortals, it is his higher creation. Whoever knows this, comes to be in this, his higher creation.” However, in the latter-day Nārāyana Upanishad, the ‘mortal man’ sought to control the ‘immortal god’ he himself had created thus: “daiva dē...

Q & A : Christian Communion in Questions & Answers, Volume 4.7 MB...

By: Igor Evgen

Since I’ve been Christian, every possible Communion (to mean communication) with co-Workers in Christ is my strong desire. Why? Because what the LORD our GOD reveals is very seldom something personal or Secret, but much more often addressed His Church through ourselves. I’m of the opinion that those Groups of Believers (given everyone there has been prepared to discuss the subject proposed well in advance) are essential to our Local Churches. Even so, this book is wel...

Many teach and are taught that the Holy Bible was written in the days of old, and some Scriptures are not instrumental for us today. To that effect, the false teachers & preachers bring about a lot of historical stuff, even the writings cooked up, collected, selected, adopted, and accepted by generations of unbelieving scholars as “documents”. Every stress in their handbooks is made on “very special” circumstances & conditions the ancient Servants of GOD acted upon. The...

Who are our enemies in this world? Kashay (anger, pride, deceit, and greed)! And whose support do these kashay have? It is of the ego.
