Full meaning:

By the luck of fate in your past I am rejoiced/gladdened of this, seen in the proof of though through fear also your behaviors adhering to the expectation of my mind. Then surely myself during the visit to the temple, the god’s form pleased, o god of gods the ruler of the people of this world and its place of residence. 


Priceless! The scripture of mankind. We get along in this world o the ruler of people and its place of residence is by the proof of grace.  


This is what it says in Gita.

It says, seeing this form unseen before, I am overjoyed but my mind is also perturbed with fear. So is this actually speaking of seeing the form with the naked eyes that is unseen before? The mind is overjoyed but mind perturbed (concern) with fear? What would this mean in actuality or real life if someone spoke of this? That’s something to think about. 


Take a look at the meaning I have for this verse.

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious. veena kodali
