Sankhya is Reality: The Knowledge of Completion

This whole week I was reading the chapter on Sankhya Yoga in Bhagavad Gita. Interestingly, I discovered so many clicks from Lord Krishna, the Purnavatar (complete incarnation) when he started to address Arjuna’s fear in waging a war and the patterns he was stuck in.

Sankhya Yoga is the philosophy of reality – the ultimate existential reality from Vedic tradition which gives us the right cognitions about who we are and an understanding that there is no death in reality! What exists as reality is perceived by you without the interference, perversions created by your powerless patterns. I feel this true knowledge should be given as the powerful cognitions about self in all schools as it will fundamentally change the way the next generation make important decisions in their lives, the way it had shifted my entire understanding and my life!

Here are some of the key truths from Sankhya Yoga:

Share and Enrich

Once my husband asked me why I am constantly sharing my spiritual experiences on Facebook. I told him that I learned from Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita that it is only by sharing and enriching others that I will continue to retain the divine energy in my heart. In fact, I don’t only share, I go one-step further by teaching people how to have spiritual experiences too.

Many People, Many Paths

This month we celebrate the Global Peace Day on 21st September. I discovered that to bring a true global peace, the world needs to know the 2 important truths. First truth – it is inner peace that leads to global peace. This means we all need to be healed from our past wounds and hurt. (see my article http://yourpresenceheals.com/peace-begins-healing-pains/ ). The second truth – As there are many students, many paths exist for Self-Realization. This understanding will remove the intolerance for co-existence of other faiths completely!

In support of the second truth,  I would like to share a particular chapter of the teaching of Bhagavad Gita. Bhagavad Gita is a sacred scripture of the Vedic culture, it is called the sruti in Sanksrit, meaning something that is heard. Bhagavad Gita is written into the Hindu epic Mahabharata called a purana, an ancient tale. It is part of a story about a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna – a dialogue between man and God. It is the ultimate practical teaching on the inner science of spirituality.
