What does it say in Gita?

Evam is the all this in the manner described, but the word is tvevam.

Here is the meaning in Gita. There are still others who being unfit to follow the disciples described before for the lack of knowledge of yoga sastra and vedas — who are these other’s exactly, so most people have the knoweldge? So among the millions of people and people taking intrest in Isha, or Jk yog, isckon or rama krishna order who exactly is fit or unfit? There are people simply unfit to follow the disciplines to follow yoga sastra or the vedas because they lack the knowledge? Who really decides who is fit and has the knowledge? And what does that look like? In our world. 

This verse is speaking of the tradition or significance of the act of hearing, the Sanskrit tradition of reciting the mantras the extent of knowledge or depth of which is not always known to us.

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
