|MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT|
JAI SHREE KRISHNA JAI GURU DEV
|WHY THE BHAGAVAD GEETA?|
by Ashok Bherumal
Many a time people will ask, "What is the core message of the Bhagavad Geeta?" My view is that the Geeta deals with how to overcome the THREE AFFLICTIONS OF THE MIND that can cause our spiritual downfall.
Let us take the allegory of a precious diamond lying on the bed of a lake. The diamond and its preciousness will not be visible or apparent to a person standing on the lakeside if (1) the water is muddy (2) the waters are turbulent or (3) the person on the lakeside is ignorant about the preciousness of a diamond.
So, for any one of these three reasons, even though the diamond is there on the bed of the lake, the person on the lakeside will neither recognise it nor appreciate its value.

|THE PONDERINGS OF A HINDU|
by Dr Diljeet Kumar Bhanot
Yes, I'm a Hindu. And I'm proud to be one. I'm allowed to think. I'm not a believer. I don't blindly believe in things. I'm a seeker. I'm allowed to seek answers. I'm allowed to contemplate on those answers and to accept only what I am convinced is true and righteous.
|WE ARE BORN RICH, POWERFUL & BEAUTIFUL|
WE ARE BORN RICH, POWERFUL & BEAUTIFUL ... just waiting to be discovered. We have the birthright to be RICH & POWERFUL. If we know (experientially) and use these inner resources, then we benefit from them. If we are ignorant of this inner level, then, just like Arjuna (BG Chap1- Arjuna's Despondency), we can be exposed to a high risk of suffering. Nobody wants suffering.
If possible we all want to be happy and to progress and evolve. Here, I shall attempt to give a simple theoretical overview of the issue. The full version is in the Bhagavad Geeta.
self: many aspects
Please see the above diagram. We have two self’s: the 'self' and the 'SELF'. We are all very familiar with the small ‘self’. It is ever-changing, going through birth, growth and death. And it operates in an ever-changing RELATIVE world. Nothing is permanent in this world (ups/downs; happiness/sorrow; gain/loss,etc) We could talk about many aspects of the 'self', but here I am going to mention only three:
1.the model of the 'self' : We are housed in a physical body. Finer than this are the senses. Finer than the senses is the mind. Even finer than the mind is the intellect. And finally we have the Ego
2.the Gunas (a lot is available in the Geeta) : The three gunas (Rajas, Satva, Tamas) operate in us and outside us. They affect all aspects of the body (including the mind, senses, intellect and ego) and the three states of consciousness
3.the Consciousness (more in Yoga Vashistha) : Consciousness: waking, sleeping and dreaming. We are very familiar with these three states and experience them everyday.
SELF: Transcend to tap the Treasury
