Ralph Waldo Emerson and Bhagavad-Gita.

Gita Jayanthi is celebrated on the Shukla Ekadashi, 11th day of waxing moon of Margshirsha. I am devotee of Lord

Krishna.I am giving my tribute to Bhagavad-Gita with the help of Ralph Waldo Emerson who is one of the most precious gem of American Literature.

“I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. 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.”

Standing on the bare ground,- my head bathed by the blithe air , and uplifted into infinite space ,- all mean egotism vanishes.I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing :I see all; the currents of the universal being circulated through me.I am a part or particle of God.

If the red slayer think he slays,
Or if the slain think he is slain,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.
Far or forgot to me is near;
Shadow and sunlight are the same;
The vanished gods to me appear;
And one to me are shame and fame.
They reckon ill who leave me out;
When me they fly, I am the wings;
I am the doubter and the doubt,
I am the hymn the Brahmin sings.
The strong gods pine for my abode,
And pine in vain the sacred Seven;
But thou, meek lover of the good!
Find me, and turn thy back on heaven.

Sincere Thanks to all of you and Happy Gita Jayanti !

  1. गीता जयंती का हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ 📖

    जीवन के सर्वांगीण विकास के लिए गीताग्रंथ अद्भुत है
    विश्व की 578 भाषाओं में गीता का अनुवाद हो चुका है
    हर भाषा में कई चिन्तकों, विद्वानों और भक्तों ने मीमांसाएँ की हैं और अभी भी हो रहीं हैं, होती रहेंगी
    क्योंकि इस ग्रंथ में सब देशों, जातियों, पंथों के तमाम मनुष्यों के कल्याण की अलौकिक सामग्री भरी हुई है
    अतः हम सबको गीताज्ञान में अवगाहन करना चाहिए
    भोग, मोक्ष, निर्लेपता, निर्भयता आदि तमाम दिव्य गुणों का विकास करनेवाला यह गीताग्रंथ विश्व में अद्वितीय है
    गीता ऐसा अद्भुत ग्रंथ है कि
    थके, हारे, गिरे हुए को उठाता है
    बिछड़े को मिलाता है
    भयभीत को निर्भय
    निर्भय को नि:शंक
    नि:शंक को निर्द्वन्द्व बनाकर
    नारायण से मिला के
    जीते जी मुक्ति का साक्षात्कार कराता है
