What does it say Gita?

Absence of self-importance, priceless! What is the importance in self importance? Unpretentious a great quality to have, straight forwardeness, well it’s not for everyone from what I gather of my translations, service of the teacher or should it read service to the teacher, which is priceless! The cleanliness nothing like that kind of purification. The stead fastness and self control do they go together? Stead fastness means immovable and self control probably the same idea. So it is listing all of these, but how is a language spoken in the way we understand each verse? What was missing from the understanding, that one is able to understand with clarity.

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
