Srila Prabhupada said:


"Srila Vyasadeva revealed these statements after perfect realization and therefore they are perfect, for liberated sages like Vyasadeva never commit errors in their rhetorical arrangements. Unless one accepts this fact, there is no use in trying to obtain help from the revealed scriptures."  -- CC Adi-Lila Chapter 2 text 86 purport.

"If you concoct, 'I am more intelligent than my Guru,' 'I can make additions and alterations,' then you are finished." -- Srila Prabhupada lecture July 12, 1975 Philadelphia Pa.

"We cannot water down the philosophy to make it more palatable. Our books must remain as they are." -- Srila Prabhupada letter to Lilavati devi dasi March 31, 1977.

Listen to the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is Online

This is the only site where the 700 verses of the Bhagavad-gita can be heard with one click in English, Hindi, and Arabic. Free of charge. Coming soon in Spanish, Sanskrit, and Gujarati.

The articles on the site are all based on the Bhagavad-gita and some of the information is unique, which cannot be found on any other site. Written in a simple and easy to understand manner. In this age (Kali Yuga), people are most degraded, live styles are based solely on lust and materialism. What is the value of a so called comfortable lifestyle with nice cars, houses, pretty partner, jewelry and other personal posessions. If after this life you become an animal? In 50-70 years time, you will not be here. Krishna consciousness guarantess a good body after this one.

Human birth is very rare, and you must utilize this rare birth to serve Lord Krishna, otherwise you will fall down back in the animal kingdom.

The Bhagavad-Gita is a unique scripture, it's the only word of God in person. Lord Krishna declared himself and proved that he was God in the human form. The Vedic scriptures are the oldest in the world, the Bhagavad-Gita was first spoken in this universe some 110 Million years ago to Vivaswan, and last spoken to Arjuna, 5000 years ago.

In the Bhagavad-Gita, in a clear way, Lord Krishna describes:

1) The science of self-realization.

2) What causes us to sin.

3) Why we suffer.

4) The process by which a human being can establish his eternal relationship with God.

a)The purpose and goal of human existence.
b) Material nature.
c) Life on higher and lower planets. How to attain life on higher planets.
d) How to be free from the cycle of birth, death and re-birth, Moksha.

Why follow anyone, when you can follow the Supreme?

"Those who are devotees of other gods and who worship them with faith actually worship only me, but they do so in a wrong way." Lord Krishna (Bg. 9.23)

"Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto me.I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear." Lord Krishna (Bg. 18.66)

We Never Die:

"For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain." (Bg. 2.20)

God is in everyones heart:

"I am the Supersoul, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings." Lord Krishna (Bg. 10.20)

Even Jesus Christ declared that God was in his heart.

What causes one to sin?

"Arjuna said: by what is one impelled to sinful acts, even unwillingly, as if engaged by force? Lord Krishna said: It is lust only, Arjuna, which is born of contact with the material mode of passion and later transformed into wrath, and which is the all devouring sinful enemy of this world." Lord Krishna (Bg.3.36-37)

God takes Forms:

"Fools deride me when I descend in the human form.

They do not know my transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be." Lord Krishna (Bg. 9.11)

Ignorance will lead a animal body:

"When one dies in the mode of goodness, he attains to the pure higher planets of the great sages. When one dies in the mode of passion, he takes birth among those engaged in fruitive activities; and when one dies in the mode of ignorance, he takes birth in the animal kingdom." (Bg. 14.14-15)

"Those situated in the mode of goodness gradually go upward to the higher planets; those in the mode of passion live on the earthly planets; and those in the abominable mode of ignorance go down to the hellish worlds." (Bg. 14.18)

Remembering Lord Krishna at the end of life is very important:

"Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, that state he will attain without fail." (Bg. 8.6)

Material life is miserable:

"From the highest planet in the material world down to the lowest, all are places of misery wherein repeated birth and death take place. But one who attains to my abode, O son of Kunte, never takes birth again." Lord Krishna (Bg. 8.16)

The mind is the greatest enemy:

"One must deliver himself with the help of his mind, and not degrade himself. The mind is the friend of the conditioned soul, and his enemy as well. For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy." (Bg. 6.5-6)

How to be happy in this life:

"Before giving up this present body, if one is able to tolerate the urges of the material senses and check the force of desire and anger, he is well situated and is happy in this world." (Bg. 5.23)

God is equal to all:

"I envy no one, nor am I partial to anyone. I am equal to all. But whoever renders service unto me in devotion is a friend, is in me, and I am also a friend to him." (Bg. 9.23)
