comes across as a very personal form of divine Related News Krishna is best known and understood through his ‘song celestial’ the Bhagwad Gita The dialogue between him and Arjuna (one of the five Pandava brothers) has been a source of relief to many a mortal heart When a desolate and dejected Arjuna refuses to fight the battle at Kurukshetra Krishna’s words of wisdom spring him back to action Arjuna represents the mortal human soul (the jiva atma) and its moral dilemmas Arjuna’s state of mind reflects our state of mind surrounded as we are in this morally ambiguous world where good and bad right and wrong are intricately woven Krishna who is the Supreme Realised Soul in human form comes across as a very personal form of divine He is responsive to the human condition and its infinite yearnings So effective is the wisdom imparted in the Bhagwad Gita that it is known as the fifth Veda Here are 10 things about Krishna that make him a devotee’s complete God 1 Focus on our duty ‘But the mind is restless o’ Krishna’ says Arjuna When Arjuna speaks these lines it resonates our very thought As we move through the twists and turns of our life we find ourselves at crossroads where we too like Arjuna want to give up on our situation and withdraw from the battle of our life our Kurukshetra On the surface our circumstances may not seem as grave as Arjuna’s but in our antahakarana our mind they seem no less oppressive and overwhelming than the Kurukshetra Through the Gita Krishna tells us that whenever we are in any sort of a moral dilemma we should transcend our emotions and concentrate on our duty (dharma) Emotions render us weak and we tend to deviate from the path of duty (dharma) Emotions of love hate jealousy attachment are subjective in nature whereas the path of dharma is objective in nature We justify our lapses on emotional grounds but no emotion is higher than the path of dharma The mind says Krishna can only be at peace when we make our Kurukshetra our personal battlefield our dharamkshetra ground of duty 2 Good will always be rewarded ‘The doer of good never comes to grief’ assures Krishna According to him as long as we follow our duty (dharma) we shall be protected by him This does not make his love conditional but he leaves the choice to us He says that as humans we are creatures of intellect and we have the freedom of choice Our choices dictate our fate Those who choose to do good are protected by Krishna’s grace and those who choose the path of unrighteousness (adharma) perish by their own wrong-doing 3 Focus on action not the results ‘Your business is with the deed and not with the result of the deed’ also known as the maxim of Bhagwad Gita Krishna here says that our focus must be the deed not the outcome of the deed As long as we fulfil our duties sincerely we will be rewarded such is the law of karma But Krishna also says ‘Inexorable are the ways of karma’ hence the outcome of our deeds cannot be easily predicted Whether the outcome is positive or negative we must trust the working of karma since according to this law there is no such thing as unmerited outcome or unmerited suffering for that matter 4 Forsake ego for bigger goals “Be just my instrument” says Krishna When we perform actions as his instrument rather than our pompous ego self there is equanimity in our action and we are better able to focus on the task at hand Ego makes us act out of the fear of our outcome It makes us anxious about the result – whether we’ll succeed or fail incur losses or gains The ego also takes the onus of the outcome upon itself When it succeeds it becomes vain and arrogant and when it fails it becomes grim and dejected As his instruments we leave the outcome of our actions to Krishna and accept both losses or gains with equipoise (Source: Arnab Dutta/Wikimedia Commons) 5 Seek divine grace over material gains In the epic Mahabharata the warring cousins Duryodhana (Kaurava) and Arjun (Pandava) both approach Krishna for help Much to Duryodhana’s relief and delight Arjuna chooses Krishna (to be his charioteer) while Duryodhana gets his massive army to fight the battle This sheds light on our tendency to put our faith in the tangible forces and empirical truths Arjuna chose Krishna’s divine presence and with Krishna on his side Arjuna went on to win the battle As long as we have Krishna’s grace we can fight the strongest of evil opponents Truth is beyond empirical knowledge It is intuitive in nature 6 Believe in the law of Karma Krishna suggests that all life is subject to the law of karma The law of karma is based on the choices we make in life When our choices are governed by dharma (sense of duty) victory is on our side but when we make selfish choices we lose the battle of life No amount of effort will yield the desired result as long as our karmic merits are not on our side We make our own luck by choosing right over wrong selfless actions over selfish actions compassion over exploitation response over reaction 7 Respond to life situations not react Krishna says that when we choose to respond rather than react to our situation we free ourselves from the consequences of our action Reaction stems from ego when we renounce our ego we are able to respond to our situation effortlessly This way we are in the world and yet not of the world This eventually frees us from the web of karma and we attain moksha or liberation from samsara the cycle of birth and death 8 Keep the bigger issues in focus Krishna the strategist is seen as a shrewd manipulator But Krishna believes that ‘Those who live by the law of the jungle die by the law of the jungle’ He argues that in order to preserve dharma in this imperfect world he needs to resort to trickery He says that in Kalyuga the dark age one has to commit smaller wrongs for the sake of bigger right 9 Uphold friendship In contrast to his reputation as a strategist Krishna is also an upholder of the sakhya rasa (friendship) which is one of the five divine mellows His relationship with Draupadi (wife of the five Pandava brothers) is one of complete trust and solidarity During her disrobing in the royal court when her protectors – her five husbands and the elders of the clan – leave her to her fate Krishna comes to her rescue like a true friend Draupadi turned to Krishna when the entire world turned against her Krishna alone protects her modesty defying all laws of logic time and space Like Draupadi whenever we are going through the most trying period of our life if we sincerely remember Krishna he is sure to come to our rescue since he can overpower the shackles of our karma He is our most reliable friend and we can take solace under the unfailing umbrella of his love Even with his childhood friend Sudama Krishna is completely indifferent to his friend’s social status Sudama is clearly embarrassed of his social station in life and tries to hide the modest gift he has got for his friend but Krishna puts him completely at ease He treats him with the same affection and informality that they shared during their childhood days Krishna changes his friends fortunes without making him go through the humiliation of asking He simply gifts him a palatial house and riches out of his regard and fondness for his childhood friend 10 Cherish bonds of love And last but not the least is his the love for Radha Together they epitomise conjugal love – madhurya rasa Radha-Krishna union is the union of love in its purest form Love that is eternal Socially Radha was related to him and was in fact even older to him by 10 years but true love transcends worldly norms What makes their union special is that it stems not out of a sense of incompleteness but out of paripoornata completeness Happy

How many times do you say ‘I love you’ to your spouse even after completing 10 years of living under one roof Related News How many times do you say ‘I love you’ to your spouse even after completing 10 years of living under one roof Well if you are looking for an answer here it is According to a research after spending 10 years with the same person just 33 percent of men and women still tell their partner they love them What’s more just 11 percent described themselves as head-over-heels in love with their significant other while one in five said their days of being “in love” are over after spending a considerable amount of time together according to a survey by YouGov an international internet-based British market research firm Relationships seem to take on a more ‘practical’ nature the longer two people remain together “The partnership is less about love and affection and more about ease and dependability” researchers found There is good news too Nearly half of the people in a two to five-year-long relationship still tell their partner every day that they loved them For 20 percent of retirees who stayed together retirement years have been the best in their entire

morality reigns in India Our points of reference are ‘moral’ — a crude Victorian kind of moralism about what you should and shouldn’t do” Top News Friend of My Youth Amit Chaudhuri Penguin Random House 120 pages Rs 499 Your book is about explorations Does an age of intolerance limiting discoveries worry you Intolerance is real and dangerous But unless we have clarity including about what the law and the Constitution allow rather than simply having the right sympathies we are going to be encroached upon more and more That is not a remote possibility now It is happening To counter it we need more than nice-sounding words We need bluntness and clarity However clarity will come when the people who represent it also have intellectual generosity and openness — which they don’t The liberal middle class might cherish freedom but I don’t think there is enough openness in this class Not to its Other (it’s too easy the othering which goes on) but within itself I don’t feel the educated secular middle class in India is as free a space as it should be — a space which subjects itself to constant scrutiny To be that requires this class to be brave and generous But it lacks courage It should have the courage to speak against oneself — and the courage to respect somebody who speaks against oneself It doesn’t do that Instead of ideas a kind of morality reigns in India Our points of reference are ‘moral’ — a crude Victorian kind of moralism about what you should and shouldn’t do Even criticism is an exercise in this moralism “You should have done that” “You shouldn’t have done this” People become Victorian governessess or rabid and violent with morality Rarely do you find a convergence between people because of ideas In India friendships are because of shared anecdotes similar class backgrounds You don’t step out of shared interests into a realm where there could be a commonality of ideas — or a common dissatisfaction with the way things are Only when that happens you have the renewals which are necessary in an intellectual class But it’s quite ossified here The moral high ground is the most densely populated place in India — everybody inhabits it We define ourselves in terms of shoulds and shouldn’ts rather than a restiveness with certain positions a seeking out of other positions or of others who may have different ideas but a similar restiveness What binds the two friends together in your book Well in school they shared an unhappiness with the system represented by sports a form of nationalism really Then there’s a bemusement with how things are You know in India there is a term — “dear friend” You find this often in the acknowledgements for a book All the “dear friends” are entrenched people So and so is a dear friend Another well-known person is a dear friend You end up thinking this person doesn’t have a single friend I’ve never heard of But as friends you connect at a very different level In your book parents and parenthood also shape this friendship On one level the meetings between the two friends have to do with how they both have ageing parents But Ramu is not a father The narrator is The narrator is also a son looking at his father’s life and how he was formed by the city and the life his parents gave him Despite traversing the city’s times the book doesn’t mention Bombay’s politics I don’t think an
