My Gurudev was extremely simple in his teachings and constantly emphasized the Gita`s applicability to one's immediate circumstances. For him the Bhagavad Gita was a timeless, universal devotional text that looked beyond all differences and which was understandable and easily practiced by the simplest, most uneducated person. Myself, having had an interest in the intersection of psychology and spirituality, and finding in all religious works, a common inheritance for all humanity, am constantly turning to it to apply it to modern life and to try understanding how it relates to wisdom teachings of all the world's religions.
May Mother Saraswati bless my buddhi, my eyes, my ears, my tongue, my pen and help me to say something of value to the world in bringing the relevance of Bhagavad Gita for contemporary problems to light. May the Mother of all knowledge, wisdom, teaching, and the arts manifest in people throughout the world God`s love, creativity, beauty and energy of light. May these manifest and pervade the world, the minds, hearts and hands of its people.
May the hands of all people be raised in praise and worship and employed in work as worship and healing. May we all be blessed and bless each other by serving one another with compassion, caring, kindness, love, sympathetic joy, empathy and authenticity so that we may transform and heal our world.
