The Glory of the Bhagavad Gita…..my fav verse is from Mahatma Gandhi…..

When I Asked God for Strength, He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face. When I Asked God for Brain & Brown, He Gave Me Puzzles in Life to Solve. When I Asked God for Happiness, He Showed Me Some Unhappy People. When I Asked God for Wealth, He Showed Me How to Work Hard. When I Asked God for Favors, He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard. When I Asked God for Peace, He Showed Me How to Help Others. God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted, He Gave Me Everything I Needed.

Henry David Thoreau says:

“In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagvad-Gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson on the Gita:

“I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagwad-Gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.”

Mahatma Gandhi says:

“When disappoint stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagvad Geeta. I find a verse here and a verse there, and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies.”                      

Dr. Annie Besant on the Gita

“It is meant to lift the aspirant from the lower levels of renunciation, where objects are renounced, to the loftier heights where desires are dead, and where the yogi dwells in calm and ceaseless contemplation while his body and mind are actively employed in discharging the duties that fell to his lot in life.”

Swami Vivekananda says:

“The Gita is a bouquet composed of the beautiful flowers of spiritual truths collected from the Vedas and the Upanishads.”

The Gita was preached as a preparatory lesson for living worldly life with an eye to Release, Nirvana. My last prayer to everyone, therefore, is that one should not fail to thoroughly understand this ancient science of worldly life as early as possible in one’s life.   

Lokmanya Tilak

 

The Gita is one of the clearest and most comprehensive summaries of the perennial philosophy ever to have been done. Hence its enduring value, not only for the Indians, but also for all mankind.  It is perhaps the most systematic spiritual statement of the perennial philosophy.    

Aldous Huxley

 

I believe that in all the living languages of the world, there is no book so full of true knowledge, and yet so handy. It teaches self-control, austerity, non-violence, compassion, obedience to the call of duty for the sake of duty, and putting up a fight against unrighteousness (Adharma).  To my knowledge, there is no book in the whole range of the world’s literature so high above as the Bhagavad-Gita, which is the treasure-house of Dharma nor only for the Hindus but foe all mankind.

I m here for THE DIVYA, IDEAS BASE ON THOUGHTS OF SWAMI VIVEKANANDA & MAHATMA GANDHI WHO WERE STRONGLY BELIEVED THAT AND GIVEN THE MESSAGE TO NATION AND THEIR FOLLOWERS FOR VILLAGE PROGRESS AND YOUTH AWAKENING. AFTER THINKING LOTS ON THE PLATFORM OF PRESENT SCENARIO DECIDE TO ESTABLISH ONE NGO WITH THE HELP OF DEDICATED YOUTH OF THE NATION, NRI'S & INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY WHO BELIEVES IN HUMANITY. THE ORGANISATION CALLS DEDICATED INDIANS FOR VILLAGES AND YOUTH AWAKENING, ITS SHORT FORM IS D.I.V.Y.A. WHICH MEANS DIVINE....! DIVYA'S main aim is to serve the poor villagers, gives education to the children who are not going to school in their childhood, make availability of drinking water, to avoids wastage of rainy water provide grants to dig the ponds. Provide basic medical facility. last but not least to make Indians youth realize their duties towards the nation, towards their family, towards their own career them selves to utilize their potential & dynamic energy for nation's progress. Actually the base of all the relationship on the truth- trust -transparency & faith . when V start to build such thing this base should b there and I'm sure in life's all stage if V 'll ask a question to our soul will found this is true because truth is always for welfare of society and then by this base v can make society happy ! and I believes that whole universe is our society ( in our VEDAS - the authentically base book of HINDUISM the sentence is that which I've always adopt in my heart that "vasudhaiv kutumbkam" - means whole world is your family ! , just like the holy ' BIBLE ' ! u know my b'day is on Christmas ! ) u know I have never read any complete novel /poet in English or other languages but I writes in HINDI - our national language & my mother tongue Gujarati _ ( remember Gujarat - on Jan /26 /2001 earthquake convert our so much towns in to debris ruins ! ), I have a language of heart only and think it is enough to reach everybody's heart ! when our heart is clear , when our intention is honest then u can catch the waves of thought of other's also just like mirror - when mirror surface is clear reflection will clear ! My name is Kamalesh the means of my name the " God of lotus" it's our God's name Vishnu - God for operation as per Hinduism there are main 3 acts of the GOD ! G - GENERATOR O - OPERATOR D- DESTROYER . but I don't think I'm God but yes believes that all human being can be a GOD by three activities (" KARMA" - Sanskrit word ) but I want to be first a Good & nice human being and be with always for poor people who always struggled to survive so they can b live like human ! until the poverty 'll in this world v can b never happy - we have to destroy the darkness of the illiterate - poverty - selfishness ! one day the sun of happiness will rise in the world and that day I will b more happiest person in the universe ! may GOD bless us ! JAI HIND..............!
