Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
1. First Talk : 5.5.
The entire religion and culture of this land is derived from that great mass of wisdom called the Vedas.
The quintessence of the Vedic wisdom has been given to us in a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
He says a peculiar thing at the beginning of the second discourse which seems very, very paradoxical.
The Lord speaks in the same breath both of death as well as immortality.
While rebuking Arjuna to abandon his cowardice and arise and fight,
‘Kshudram hridaya-daurbalyam tyaktvotishtha parantapa’,
Lord Krishna says, ‘Jatasya hi dhruvo mrityuh’ “Certain is death for those who are born.”
And the next moment He asks Arjuna : - “Why are you saying ‘I will not kill?’ Who can ‘kill’ whom? And who can ‘be killed’ by whom? No one can be ‘killed’ because the Being is unborn, eternal and indestructible! Weapons cannot cleave It, fire cannot burn It, water cannot wet It, wind cannot dry It; unborn, eternal, permanent is that imperishable Self—Avinaashi Atma.”
So, while stating that death is certain for the one who is born, He stresses that immortality is the truth! Seemingly paradoxical – but that is the great Reality!
He gives us a very valuable insight: “You have an aspect, a dimension within you which is Immortal Being.
