Read the simplified version of Bhagavad Gita today. A hearty thanks to the one who sent it to me :-). I'm not the one to read the entire 2000 page saga, even though my love for reading is pretty well known. Mythology and politics is something that has never interested me and never will. Knowing my love for history mom and grandmom had tried to fool me into reading mythology, telling me that these are nothing but history. I refused to budge. Ofcourse, I know the basics of Mahabharata and Ramayana, but the entire saga remains unknown. The only thing that I knew about Bhagavad Gita was that these are Lord Krishna's teachings to Arjuna. What exactly are the teaching's, today I got to know. Here are a few of them,
Happened for the good;
Whatever is happening,
Is happening for the good;
Whatever will happen,
Will also happen for the good only."
"What is yours today,
Belonged to someone else yesterday, and
Will belong to someone else tomorrow.
You are mistakenly enjoying the thought
That this is yours.
It is this false happiness that is
The cause of your sorrows."
Man, I'm just amazed. If these were universal facts ages ago, I wonder why people don't implement it these days. These simple verses are enough to re-make a life!
Okay, now do we get a simplified version of the other two?
