The wonderful conversation between Krishna and Arjuna that took place on the eleventh day of the bright fortnight of the month of Margasirsa (which usually falls in Nov-Dec) during the Mahabharata war is known as GITA JAYANTHI. Incidentally, in the eleventh chapter of the Gita, Sri Krishna describes himself thus: "Among the months, I am Margasirsa." Therefore, this month is very apt to begin a study of the Bhagavad Gita. However, in this article, we will take a quick look at some practical hints the Gita offers for spiritual seekers. A detailed study of this profound scripture will be reserved for a later time.
- The importance of practice & detachment: "The mind is restless no doubt, and difficult to subdue, Arjuna; but it can be brought under control by repeated practice (abhyasa) and dispassion or detachment (vairagya). (6.35)" The Gita gives us great hope by telling us that we need not worry looking at the enormity of the problem of life. Even a great warrior like Arjuna, an ace archer with tremendous powers of mental concentration, found it very difficult to control his mind, what to speak of ordinary mortals like us. There is no crash course for instant moksha. The goal has to be attained gradually, step by step with repeated effort and constant practice of detachment.
5. The three temperaments: "Those who abide by the quality of Sattva, rise up; while those in whom Rajas predominates, stay in the middle; and those who are of a Tamasika temperament, sink down. (14.18)" Human nature is classified into three types - Tamas signifies darkness, ignorance and inertia and all the evil qualities born of it; Rajas is of the nature of uncontrolled activity and Sattva is of the nature of light, calmness and joy born of controlled action. We must introspect and find out which quality is predominant in us. If we are tamasik, let us strive to move towards rajas and those who are already very active should move towards controlled action, sattva.
