Bhagvad Gita - Lesson 30 - Suggested Answers

Q1) What happens when one does not follow the instructions of LORD KRISHNA?

When one does not follow the instructions of LORD KRISHNA then he is ignorant of his own self, Brahman and the Supreme Godhead beccause his heart is empty. There is no hope of perfection in life and it would be chaotic. He would keep running after materialistic things for his sense gratification and totally ignorant about the ultimate abode of his soul!

जो भगवान के निर्देशों का पालन नहीं करता ,वह बंधन में फस कर रह जाता है ,माया उसे घेर लेती हैं ,उसका पतन हो जाता है lअतः ऐसे व्यक्ति के जीवन के सार्थकता की आशा नहीं की जा सकतीl

Q2) How can we always remain in Krishna consciousness?

We can remain in Krishna consciousness when there is no need of sense gratification and are fully devoted to Lord Krishna. When we fulfill all our duties whether material or spiritual and stick to these prescribed duties even up to death, we stay with Lord. Also we should act in the loving service of Krishna, reciting his name and be free from Maya.

हम कृष्ण भावना मृत में रह सकते हैं ,अगर हम गुरु के बताए मार्ग दर्शन में रहकर भक्ति के मार्ग पर चलें ,भक्तों का संग करें ,ग्रंथों का नियमित रूप से अध्ययन करें ,हरे कृष्ण महामंत्र का जप करेंl

Q3) Explain the example of travelling on highways comparing with our devotional life?

When we travel on highways we follow certain rules to avoid accidents ( driving within speed limit, driving in one line, no overtaking etc.) No matter how well these Highways are made, there is always a chance of accident if we are not paying proper attention all the time. In the same way, on the path of Krishna consciousness  in spite of regulated sense enjoyment, there is every chance of falling down. There might not be any lust for sensory activties but little carelessness may lead us towards materialistic world anytime no matter how well rules of Krishna consciouness (no indulgence in sense gratification, reciting Lords name, acting always in the loving service of Lord etc.)are being followed.

जैसे जब हम राजमार्ग पर चलते हैं तो बड़े निश्चिंत होकर गाड़ी चलाते हैं ,बहुत अच्छा रास्ता है ,आसानी से गाड़ी चलाते हैं, परंतु अगर हम सावधानी से नहीं चलाएंगे तो वहां भी एक्सीडेंट हो सकता है lवैसे ही अगर हम सावधानी से भक्ति के नियमों का पालन नहीं करेंगे या इंद्रिय तृप्ति से दूर नहीं होंगे तो यह हमारे लिए पतन का कारण होगाl
