As part of our study of Spirituality, many
immediate questions have been asked by young people that need to be answered
One needs to
know that the answers to the questions may or may not appeal to you -- all
depending on your samskars, background, beliefs and what you have been
brought up with. But keep in mind that the answer to each question is based on spiritual values and that the solution to our problems lie in Spirituality -- not in religion, beliefs, or
thoughts. Often religion creates more
problems than solutions. One must
have an open mind while studying the Gita. This is only to give
you a fresh start.
To receive Spiritual
knowledge one must have a pure body, mind and intellect or it will be like
pouring fresh milk into a dirty vessel and ruining the milk. Try to listen carefully and contemplate. When you
have learned the entire Gita, you will be able to appreciate and understand
the answers better. At present accept what is
explained as they are not any one person's personal views, but the views and experience of
thousands of saints and Vedanta.
If you see a question not addressed that you would like an answer to, feel free to submit new questions. The answers will be based on Truth, even
though sometimes you won't like it. Life is like that. There are lots of problems to be solved and
that is one reason we are using the Gita to solve our problems. The things we learn take
time to grow in us and to be useful to us. Soon you'll be on your own feet, and even
then, stick to the Gita. You are very blessed.
