In India’s past, India has only conquered people through our minds religion (Philosophy, yoga, Mahatma Gandhi, the first women leader and prime mister Indira Gandhi, sitar, classical music and dance, values of education).

That is India’s destiny. 


I love this version. It is sweet! It makes perfect sense.


Bhagavat Gita 18.66

Bhagavat Gita 18.66


Sarva dharman —  The entire duty lies in

parityajya — you attempting to try

mam — us  —– (ourselves)

ekam — alone or “in solitude” (tel.)

saranam — to whom we surrender to or take shelter of  (God)

vraja — in this all pervasive land (an unwelcome or ill physical effect influencing or permeating among people, a social disorder) 

Link of Vraja

Shandilya Rishi said: Dear Parikshit and Vajranabha! I will tell you the secret of Vrajabhumi. Listen carefully. The meaning of the word “Vraja” is all-pervasive. According to ancient opinions, this land is named Vraja because it is all-pervasive. This land is an all-pervasive spiritual manifestation situated beyond the three modes of material nature. Therefore this is called Vraja. This land is ever-blissful, effulgent, indestructible, and the abode for the liberated souls.

There is more explanation on the link.

aham — I

tva — unto you

sarva–papebhyo — the entire fearful of sin

moksasyisyami — will deliver I you of

Ma —  our (us) or mother?  

(In Sri Krishna last message of the verse on you tube, he says to go to mother).

sucah — happiness

Iksvakave Full Meaning:

Our entire duty lies in you attempting to try us/ourselves “alone” or in solitude (because it is in solitude we understand and process god). To whom we surrender to or take shelter in this all pervasive land (that has unwelcome physical influences and effects) (see the link on Vraja Bhumi). I, in you — I am in you, the entire fearful of sin will deliver I you of us or our happiness. 


What does it say in Gita?

It is sarva dharman, entire duty lies in not abandoning dharma. The religion is dharma, it is not speaking of abandoning dharma but rather the approach of understanding and being closer to God.

The animal should be the Lion and not the tiger.
