Is all I have left in my heart to give is karma?
tasmat sarvagatam brahma nityam yajne pratisthitam
Karma — past actions
Barhmodbhavam — dwelling of Brahma
Viddhi — the way it is or the manner in which
Brahmaksara – brahma’s writing of letters
Samudbhavam —- ocean is the dwelling.
Tasmat — for this reason
Sarvagatam — the entire past (gatam – Telugu —- Hindi expression – gatam gataha)
Brahma –is with brahma
Nityam — eternally
Yajne — sacrifices performed
Pratisthitam — appear standing in front of you. (Implied—- situation at hand)
Past actions reside/housed/dwell with brahma. This is the way or manner in which brahma’s writing of letters express —- ocean is the dwelling. For this reason, the entire past is with Brahma – eternally you are sacrificing.
Eternally you are sacrificing — here is a better way to think about it. what goes around comes around. Or is it simply saying our lives are not without sacrifices. Losing things we love and gaining things we love that allow us to be closer to God. This is a lesson learned.
Our stories begin with scarifices.
What it says in Prabhupada’s Gita about Text 3.15
Regulated activities are prescribed in the vedas, and the vedas are directly manifested from the supreme personality of Godhead. Consquently the all-pervading transcendence is eternally situated in acts of sacrifice.
