In love with Golapi, Subratagolapi.
Introduction by the author :
As I am requested and inspired also, by many scholars and devotees of the Lord Krishna to present a simple view of the Holy Book , “The Srimad Bhagawad Gita” and I being one of the most humble among the purest of the devotees of Lord Krishna and His magical greatness in the making of this wonderful world and the Universe, I present my own respectful submission about this great Holy Book!
I expect to receive an optimistic reply from the great scholars, devotees of Lord Krishna and the readers and followers of my posts and publications from all the corners of the world as usual and I shall be obliged to them for ever, for their positive comments and inspiration in support of my effort inspite of my very little knowledge about such a magical creation by the Lord Krishna Himself!
I assume with a deep respect to my readers across the world that the simple explanation of the Great Holy Book ,”The Srimad Bhagawad Gita” will be interesting to all the older and the younger generation of the world today.
Thank you all .
Arjuna, the greatest archer of his time and an excellent warrior, being the Pandava III in front of the thousands of enemies in the battle line of Kurukshetra suddenly became reluctant to take part in the incumbent war against the Kauravas.
He lost all his wishes to hold his weapons and in all his dejected mind losing every hope and spirit of his life, duty and role to play there in the battle field started asking a few questions to the Lord Krishna who was the ‘sarathi’, the charioteer of Arjuna and looking at the completely frustrated and confused Arjuna in his body and mind, the ‘sarathi’ Krishna in his ever smiling face took a front role to uplift the morale of the warrior.
In the reply of the questions asked by Arjuna, the Lord Krishna in his role as a ‘sarathi’, advised Arjuna to stick to his immediate duty as a soldier in the battlefield of kurukshetra ignoring all the aspects of profits and losses and the future consequences of his acts and in doing so Arjuna must equate pain with pleasure to complete his duty selflessly.
