A Blog about Religious Hindu Philosophy of Bhagwat Gita or Bhagwad Gita or Gita, Geeta. These are Teachings of 'Lord Krishna' given to 'Arjuna' on the battlefield of Kurukshetra during Mahabharata war, more than 5000 years before, in Haryana State of India. How these philosophies / teachings are still relevant in modern day to day life of today, shall be there in this blog. So Enjoy Divine words of God explained in this Blog.
In this world there are many people who have a perverted thinking & they do not want to be responsible for their actions. Such people go on doing bad things in life, harming themselves & others in society, yet not feeling themselves responsible for their such actions. Either such people do not know at all how & why they are doing wrongful actions/misdeeds or they think that some invisible force is getting done all such sinful actions through them & many of them call such force as Satanic force, Devil force, Evil force etc. etc. In fact such people do not want to be responsible for their misdeeds & just want some excuse to put the blame on somebody else or on some invisible force.
All such thinking of such people is only perverse thinking which does harm only to such people. Sometimes such people even say that God is responsible for their such misdeeds & make God as responsible for their sinful deeds & quote the below words in support of their belief :
"I know what is right, yet I feel no urge for the practice of virtue, I know even that which is unrighteous; yet I am unable to recoil from it. I do as I am prompted to do by some unknown deity installed within my heart."
The above is the view point of bad people in society who do not want to take any blame for their misdeeds/sins due to ignorance & such view point of theirs is altogether worth dismissing.
Now here below is the right perspective with respect to the commission of sins as per "Bhagwat Gita".
In "Bhagwat Gita" Arjuna asks "Lord Krishna" the following question:
"Sri Krishna said: Thus knowing oneself to be transcendental to the material senses, mind and intelligence, O Arjuna, one should steady the mind by deliberate spiritual intelligence and thus—by spiritual strength—conquer the lust which is the insatiable enemy."
From the above verses of "Bhagwat Gita" it is very clear that it is the individual's Lust & constant feeding of one's senses that a person commits sinful activities. Due to such involvement in lust, one's intelligence gets covered with ignorance, just like a mirror is covered by the dust & you are not able to see your face properly in it. When one's mind and intelligence becomes covered with the dust of lust & sensual activity, then his/her thinking becomes perverted & that person makes God or some invisible force as responsible for his/her sinful deeds, which is not correct. Let's be very clear that we all are responsible for our own deeds/misdeeds & in no case you can put blame of your deeds/misdeeds on any other person; human, divine or any other invisible force. Let's take responsibility for our own actions & let's not do anything which shall harm others in actions, words or deeds.
On 10/09/2008 an "Atom-Smasher" experiment started underground along the Swiss-French border to recreate the Big Bang. It is thought that it can unveil the puzzle & the eternal question, "How we all came into being?" As per one theory, only 4-5% of the universe's content is matter and 25% of it is invisible dark matter. As high as 75% of the universe consists of dark energy about which very little is known. The atom-smasher experiment could help scientists solve some of the above said unsolved queries. This European underground experiment is trying to recreate conditions that existed immediately after the Big Bang.
"God particle": Dubbed the "God particle" by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman, the "Higgs boson" is a controversial theoretical particle believed to bestow mass on all other particles. Higgs boson, or "God particle" is understood theoretically to be the basis of all matter as well anti-matter and dark matter. It is only a theoretical particle not yet observed.
"All world scientists hope to unlock the secrets about the atom, the universe and its origin with collisions of highly charged photons in the "Large Hadron Collider", located 150 meters underneath near Geneva, Switzerland. The Large Hadron Collidor is an experiment which will continue over the next 15 years, to replicate a miniature “Big Bang” that created the Universe.
Neutrons and protons are the best known particles. Scientists hope to discover new particles—Higgs-Bosons, also termed ‘God Particles’ , which they theorize are responsible for mass of atoms. The particles are named after Kolkata-born Satyendra Nath Bose (1894-1974 ) and UK-born Peter Higgs, both eminent physicists. The LHC is the largest and the most costliest experiment in the world ever at over $9 billion.
In one controversy 'God particle' theorist Peter Higgs has attacked his Nobel prize rival Stephen Hawking, describing his work as "not good enough". Professor Hawking once placed a $100 bet that the 'God particle' does not exist. However, Scientists believe the 'God particle' is crucial to understanding the origin of mass. Shortly after the big bang, it is thought many particles weighed nothing, but became heavy later on.
MY VIEWS: As per me, all the above said is only in the realm of theories of particle physics & till date there is no evidence of 'God particle' or "Higgs boson". Now I shall try to present my perspective whose basis is in the realm of philosophy. For me Great Indian book "Bhagwat Gita" is the greatest of philosophical book which answers all your queries from how this universe was created or how one should lead one's life or what is the truth of life & death. "Bhagwat Gita" answers all your queries. Now here I shall try to explain the truth about "God Particle" & "Big Bang".
As per "Bhagwat Gita" God has created this universe out of "Zero" or nothing. Sometimes God himself is also called "Zero" as Vedas tell us that "In the beginning was "Zero" or nothing & out of nothing or un-manifest aspect of God, came everything." Before the universe came into being, God in His "Zero" or un-manifest aspect was there & then He willed to create this universe. That "Zero" substance to which our Vedas call "God" is the source of Consciousness as well as Un-Conscious matter. He is also the source of Mind & Intellect. From this Zero aspect of God, on His will, He created two energies, one was called lower energy & other was called higher energy.
It is to be understood that it is only due to the WILL of GOD that whole creation takes place out of "ZERO". God in His un-manifest aspect just willed & hence the energies required to form this universe sprang out of "Zero" or "Nothing" or "God". Now it is these energies that are the focus of particle physics scientists. These scientists need to know that "God cannot be distilled in test tubes in laboratories" nor "God can come out of 'Atom-Smasher' experiment that has been started underground along the Swiss-French border to recreate the Big Bang. Pl. note that "Big Bang" started with the Will of God & also guided by His Super Intelligence. By just God's willing, Material Energy came into being which in turn created this vast infinite Space & later on out of Space came out the Air, Fire, Water & Earth. Unless until we consider & have faith in God with all His powers & His super Intelligence, we cannot appreciate the reality & truth about Big Bang.
"Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego—all together these eight constitute God's lower (insentient) nature or energy. Other than this there is another, superior or higher energy of God by which whole world is sustained & is in the form of "Life principle" energy or spiritual energy . All created beings (animate or inanimate) have their source in these two natures or energies.
Now out of the above above two energies, "Life principle" energy or Spiritual energy or also called Soul, is the one which is Un-manifest & cannot be externalized in any case. Though it is everlasting, present everywhere within the space, unchangeable, immovable and eternally the same but still it cannot be Manifested or externalized.
But the other energy (lower one) can be externalized & has externalized the "Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space, Mind, Intelligence and also the Ego principle". This energy in it's initial & original form is called "Nature Principle" or even "Om". This "Nature Principle" in it's initial & original form is Un-manifest only & all these "Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space, Mind, Intelligence and also the Ego principle" that came out of it are only metamorphic forms of one another. This "Nature Principle" is the invisible divine power, the only doer, the sole causative & activating force that upholds all creation through vibration. "Nature Principle" or Om or the Word is the creative vibration that externalizes all creation. Now though "Nature Principle" is invisible power lying within the every atom of the universe, energizing & giving life to every atom of the matter; it is so subtle that it cannot be Manifested in such a form that it is captured by the "Large Hadron Collidor" in an experiment in Laboratory. We need to understand that such divine energies lying within the every atom of creation, cannot be manifested by such destructive experiments of "Atom-Smasher". I am of the view that though "God particle" exists in nature which bestow mass on all other particles but due to it's Un-manifest nature it cannot be seen with any machine. It is so subtle that it is beyond the view of any microscope or machine.
It is also called that God is a matter of faith & not of Intellect. The truth of God which lies within every atom of the creation, can be known by faith in HIM & by reading the philosophical books like "Vedas", "Upanishads", "Bhagwat Gita" etc. If someone really wants to experience such forces in nature & our creation, then that person needs to practice meditation & learn those techniques through which great Indian Yogis tuned their minds to Divinity & knew all those truths about God & Nature.
Below are verses of Bhagwat Gita which relate to creation of the universe & God:
"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, I am seated in everyone’s heart, and from Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedanta, and I am the knower of the Vedas."
