Scripture of mankind. 

What does it say in Gita? 

And that work which is performed under delusion, without any regard to consequences, loss, injury to others and here this, to one’s own capacity.  Work that is performed in such a manner is under delusion, clearly these are such acts. If you are testing one’s capacity with all this, we are talking about someone who is not in the right mind, and so this is said to be born of Tamas or ignorance.  Does it sound like Sanskirt or Gita anymore? Or is it a delusion? I don’t think that is what this is speaking of, anubandham I know does not mean consequences, bandham are relationships or ties. And that is what this verse is about. Please take a look at the meaning I have for this.

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
