ABSOLUTE TRUTH AS DESCRIBED BY SHRI KRISHNA – 2

Before reading this you must go through ABSOLUTE TRUTH AS DESCRIBED BY SHRI KRISHNA – 1. So lets start with part – 2.

Let’s see the next verse as given below:

bīja sarva-bhūtānā

viddhi pārtha sanātanam

buddhir buddhimatām asmi

tejas tejasvinām aham

In this verse Shri Krishna tells that he is the seed of all that exists in this world. It is due to him that everything is alive. There are 8,400,000 species of life which comprises each and everything that exists in this world whether static or dynamic like humans, animals and birds are dynamic creatures since they can move from one place to another whereas trees are static creatures because they cannot move. He further states that he is the intelligence of an intelligent. It is due to him that intelligence arises and he is it’s true master. Lastly he states that he is the skill and the ability in a man.

Let’s look at another verse:

bala balavatā cāha

kāma-rāga-vivarjitam

dharmāviruddho bhūteu

kāmo ‘smi bharatarabha

In this verse Lord Krishna states that he is the power in the powerful. He is totally devoid of passion and has no desires. He also states that he is the sex life. He explains that a powerful man must use his power to protect the weak instead of using it for personal gains and aggression. He also states that sex life must only be used for the production of off-springs and they must be taught about Krishna consciousness.

The next verse is as follows:

ye caiva sāttvikā bhāvā

rājasās tāmasāś ca ye

matta eveti tān viddhi

na tv ahaṁ teṣu te mayi

There are three modes of material nature. They are goodness, passion and ignorance. All these three modes of nature are emanated by Shri Krishna but he himself is not subject to such laws. He is independent from material bondage.

Let’s look at he next verse:

tribhir gua-mayair bhāvair

ebhi sarvam ida jagat

mohita nābhijānāti

mām ebhya param avyayam

He tells that there are three modes of material nature as discussed above. There are some who are indulge with goodness who are called as brahmanas, there are some who indulge with passion who are known as Kshatriyas, others who indulge with both passion and ignorance i.e. vaishyas and lastly those who are completely in ignorance i.e. shudras but the supreme soul i.e. Shri Krishna does not fall under any of these 4 categories. He is free from all categories and therefore we all must also be free from these three material modes of nature and must surrender unto him.

Let’s look at the next verse:

daivī hy eā gua-mayī

mama māyā duratyayā

mām eva ye prapadyante

māyām etā taranti te

In this verse Shri Krishna explains that these three modes of material nature emanate from him and it is very difficult to overcome these but once a person surrenders into Shri Krishna he can easily cross over it. As all the materialistic things are just emanations of the supreme lord therefore it is very easy to overcome these three modes of nature by surrendering into God.

Lets look at the next verse:

na mā duktino mū

prapadyante narādhamā

māyayāpahta-jñānā

āsura bhāvam āśritā

Through this verse Shri Krishna explains that those people who are always engaged in material activities and because of which their knowledge is stolen by illusion. Those people who are atheists and do not believe in the presence of the lord are the ones who do not surrender unto God.
