HINDU FASTS & FESTIVALS : 17-5.
17. GITA JAYANTI-5.
Mark carefully how the Gita stresses again and again this lofty message.
The Lord declares : -
“Keep thou thy mind in Me, in Me place thy reason”.
In another verse He says : -
“Therefore, at all times remember Me and fight. You will surely attain Me, having thus offered yourself”.
And yet again :-
“Perform thou action, remaining united with Me at heart”.
The Gita guides you to glory with the watchwords : -
“Be thou divine-minded, devoted to Me as your goal, and let your subconscious mind be divine”.
The Lord gives the following firm assurance also: “I become the saviour from this mortal world for those whose minds are set on Me”.
Such is the most illuminating message of the Gita, seeking to lead man to a life of perfection even while performing his ordained role here.
Long has this message been neglected by man.
Forgetting the Lord, the world has turned towards sense indulgence and mammon.
A terrible price has been paid.
O man, enough of this forgetfulness!
The Lord has warned you against heedlessness : -
“If, out of egoism, thou wilt not hear, then thou shalt perish”.
