Gita Saar - Geeta Updesh

Lord questions everyone over various issues. He advises people to give up the illusionary world. Bhagwan Krishna teaches that only way to achieve lifelong happiness is to surrender to him. Lord questions: Why do you worry unnecessarily? What are you afraid of? Who can kill destroy you?

A soul is never born, so it never dies. Whatever happened in the past, happened for the best; whatever is happening, is happening for the best; whatever will happen in future, will happen for the best. Do not repent the past; do not worry for future; concentrate on your present.
What did you own, that makes you cry on losing? What did you bring, that you fear losing? What did you give birth to, that you fear its destruction? You didn’t bring anything. Whatever one takes, one must return it to God. Everyone came empty handed and will therefore die, empty handed.

Whatever belongs to you today belonged to someone else yesterday and it will belong to someone else tomorrow. Don’t be in an illusion by maya that is the root cause of all pain and misery.

Change is the rule of nature. What one understands as death is actually life itself. One moment you are the owner of crores and in the very next moment you become a pauper.

Your body doesn’t belong to you and vice versa. Body is composed of five elements- Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Sky; one day it will perish in these elements.

Offer yourself to the Almighty Lord. This is the best unconditional support gains freedom from fear, worry and despair.
