Celibacy/Abstinence/Doubts in the Gita


dear sir
how r u? Sir i have doubts regarding bagavan sayings and His play
in Bagavat Gita , chapter Baktiyoga Bagavan said as, "adveshta sarva bootanam mytra: karuna eva cha, nirmamo nirahangara: samaduka suga: kshami.
Santhushta: sathatham yogi yatatma dridanishchaya: mayarpita manobudhiryo matbakta: sa me priya:(bg chpt 12 , sl 13 and 14) in this sloka bagavan gives us the clear defenition of devotion .The first line stated that the devotee have no any angry  or krodha to living creatures(bhuta), Karna and Jayadratha are also a living creatures .Then why God helped Arjuna to kill them? This a question about non self thing , asked only for gather its spiritual meaning
thanking you

There is no action greater than performing one's Dharma sincerely. Arjuna being a Kshatriya warrior, had to follow his Dharma of fighting for justice. Hence the killing was validated and justified, being an inevitable part of his duty.

The action was carried out in the course of his Dharma and not with an intention of 'Himsa' (needless harm). Karna and Jayadrata were in the path of 'Adharma' (non-righteousness), having taken to the wrong path. Thus Arjuna became the tool of the Lord to instill justice.

ॐ तत् सत्
(That Supreme being is the absolute truth)

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self, & the means required are dealt with here.


The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy‚' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) for 'Mukti' (liberation). Mere indulgence in '¬sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. ¬sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, ¬sana, Pr‚n‚y‚ma, Praty‚h‚ra, Dh‚rana, Dhy‚na and Sam‚dhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':- "Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "To surrender one's Ego and go with the will of the Almighty."
