The Blessed Lord said: While speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor the dead.


I want to share with you two points. My mother (she was known to every one as Dudhua, one who gives milk) recently passed away She was 82 years old and loved me dearly. I feel I did not do what I should have done for her, but I can’t change that now. For a moment I was wondering if I should continue this series but then I remembered how much she wanted me to continue this and hence I am writing this piece today. I wish to make it a tribute to her today.

Navaratri has ended today. I love Devi Ma and it is her kripa that is manifesting through my Gita writing. So, let us all bow down to her and pray:

Ya Devi sarvabhuteshu, buddhi rupena sansthita
Namastasyai Namastsyai, Namastasyai Namo Namah

I have lived with this verse (shloka) now for over two weeks. Sleeping, waking and even while I was flying to India for the Antyeshti Samskara, this shloka was my undercurrent. I really could not understand what was asochya (not worth thinking) in Arjuna’s point. We all can relate to what Arjuna has been saying. This early morning while I was still asleep at around 4 o’clok it suddenly dawned on me. As if the shloka came to me and said, this is what I mean. And I want to share it with you all. You may already know the meaning but for me it was a real eye opener. Please check out the next article.

  • sree  - asochya

    The role of Arjuna represents an ignorant who sincerely wanted to come out of blues caused by perplexity,& thus eligible to get advice from wise.
    Arjuna is a kshatriya & his prime duty is to fulfill that duty of offering best service by defeating tyrant rulership of kauravas.His moksha (personal evolution & liberation lies in fulfilling his duty,called karmayoga).
    Relationships n their attachments are hence not worth thinking as they hamper the progress in both mundane as well as spiritual pursuiit.
    Unless Arjuna's ignorance is lost mankind may not be saved.

    Good point.

  • sree  - asochya

    Another importance of this shloka is that Bhagavan Shree Krishna started his discourse with this shloka, mentioning shoka & finished with “sarva dharman parithyajya mam ekam saranam vraja.Aham tva sarva papebhyo moksha ishyami masuchaha”,again ending by mentioning shoka duly stressing the utility of knowledge of vedanta in warding off the shoka.
    Hence whoever understands gita gets liberated from shoka as it's purpose is only that.
    Here shree krishna means our own self free from all attachments, adhered to performance of dharma without expectations on the nature of outcome.
