066 – Bhagavad Gita – Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha – Kalidasa’s enchanting verses on Indian Culture

2870 Views | 11 months ago

Poojya Swamiji beautifully chants and explains the four scintillating verses of Abhijnana Shakuntalam written by the great poet Kalidasa - reminding us that these verses contain in them the entire culture of our motherland. After all, it is only the pure heart of a human being, which can voice out the deeply ingrained values and qualities of our cultural heritage.

Swamiji eloquently describes the compassionate and selfless nature of the Ascetic heart, which melts at the very sight of another's grief. For them, their entire life is a service to fulfill the need of others. They have no hesitation or lack in doing whatever is needed at the right time - as amply demonstrated by Kanva Maharshi in accepting and taking care of the abandoned child Shakuntala. The willingness shown by sage Vyasa to keep aside his vow of celibacy inorder to meet the emergent need of Kuru Dynasty also reveals to us the lofty dimensions of the Ascetic mind!

Poojya Swamiji will be taking Bhagavad Gita Verse by Verse in this Satsang (Saturdays). Swamiji is now discussing the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.
