Full meaning

Of the letters formed, the final is this, the pair that is coupled with (the OM), is equal to the wish on earth also. I am surely the eye of time, its bestower I am, the universal form in all of the faces. 


What does it say it Gita?


What is “among the letter I am A, among the compound formations?” What this verse is saying is among all of the letters, the final of this is a coupled pair to mean OM. It is not saying, it is the never ending time, but the eye of time, knows the past, present and future and role of being its bestower in all of the faces on earth. Not speaking of the all seeing brahma, the dispenser of karmas of all beings. That is not the understanding I have thus far of either the Brahma or the karma.  The final of the asksaram, the letters formed is OM the meaning of this verse. Take a look at the meaning I have for this again.


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
