Bhagavad Gita is meant to be lived by.......................Nectarean Mellows

It is the duty of father and mother to bring their family together regularly and discuss the topics of tattvatah; truth; to train their family members in the goal of life, who they are, what is the relationship with god and with material nature, what are the qualities of the soul, what is the duty of every human being. This should be the main subject that we teach our children. They are not going to teach it in the colleges, in the high schools, or in the elementary schools, you must teach it in your own home and you cannot teach it unless you know it and you cannot know it unless you yourself are trained by associating with great devotees of the lord, sincere devotees of the lord and by hearing the Gita’s philosophy from them. Bhagavad Gita is not just something to discuss. Gita is the philosophy that is meant to be lived by. First we must hear, then we must put what we hear into action. So nice programs like tonight are the most essential and important part of reconstructing our society into something that will give positive benefits to the citizens of the world, though we may leave this place tonight, we should not think that was a very nice lecture. We should think that this was the opening of the door of the life of devotion and I must walk through that door and I must learn how to deeper and deeper dedicate myself in the service of the lord.

Humility is not just a part of devotional service; it is the heart of devotional service.

To see a Vaishnava and not become happy is an offence. – Skand Puran

It is important to remind ourselves that at the end of the day, all we really have is each other.

  • So true.

    Its almost like Swami Vivekanand's essay on Gita that I read about a decade back. He wrote, "even if you have doubt about the history, the Krishna of as being the God, the timings or the hours that Krishna-Arjun talked in the battle field and nobody strike them.... leave all these doubts and live Gita as whatever is said in it is so beautiful, so serene.  Just try to live according to Gita and you will enjoy your life more."
