God in Bhagavad Gi:tha revealed a secret to us through Arjuna.
idam thu the guhyatamam
yaj jnatva mo:kshyase ‘subhat
In Chapter 9, Swamy says: The Supreme Lord said: My dear Arjuna, because you are never envious of Me, I shall impart to you this most secret wisdom…
What Krushna was going to preach Arjuna, HE says is efficient in 9 ways. And one of them is “susukham karthum”
raajavidhyaa ra:ja guhyam pavithram idham utthamam
prathyakshaavagamam Dharmyam susukham karthum avyayam
So what is it?
A pure, loving devotional service to God – “Bhagavad A:ra:dhana”.
In the second chapter He says, Even a little attempt towards it is good. Just a thought, “I should do something for Swamy”:That is also good. If you started and left it midway: Its OK. If you did it wrongly: It does not matter.
There are no negative effects whatsoever.
Swamy says: prathyava:yo na vidyathe
prathyava:yo na vidyathe
svalpamapi asya dharmasya
thra:yathe mahatho bhaya:th
And there shall not be any negative effects even by doing it incorrectly. prathyava:yo na vidyathe
This is the secret. It is indeed the most confidential knowledge Swamy imparted to Arjuna. All our alwars and acharyas have reiterated the greatness of “Bhagavad A:radhana” in several compositions, works and preaching.
But why is Krushna calling it a secret ?
That’s a secret too! Listen to Sri Swamiji’s Bhagavad Githa Pravachanams to know more about this classified knowledge in Chapter 9 !
