My mentality after understanding The Gita


The following is a letter that I wrote to God a few years back. This was an attempt of telling myself what I understood from The Gita and the kind of mind set I wanted to maintain.

Dear god,
i know u r the almighty.... i know u love me and will take care of me....i see u and feel u in every walk of life.... when i see flowers i see ur smile........ when i see mountains i see ur majesty...when i see a lion i see how royal u r..... i see ur patience in every tree...i see ur beauty in every girl who pass by me......i see ur purity in children's smile...u r the brightness in the sun and the moon.... u r the taste in my food.......u r music to my ears...........u r in front of me ........behind me.......above me... and below me.....i am surrounded by ur divine presence....... u r the almighty and there is no opponent for u......... u r the best... and all that is best is you.......... u r talent in all people who r successful... u r love in all those who serve the poor.... u r the intelligence in scientists.... and u r the valour in all the soldiers........i will ask u for nothing because u know what to provide.... i take it as, i dont need what ever u have not provided.......... if i succeed i take it as ur blessing.... if i fail i take it as, u wanted me to learn a lesson from it..... if u provide me with food i take it as a blessing... if not, i understand u want me to fast.....
if my desires are fulfilled i take it as ur blessing.............. if not i understand they r not good for me......u came to me as my father...... u came to me as my mother......... i am ur slave and i am at ur service because i know u rule this earth........ historians talk of many rulers who ruled on this earth........ but i know it was u who always ruled and it was ur will that is always done........ u create....... u maintain and u destroy......... u r responsible for all that is good and all that is bad.......... u created the bad to give recognition for the good.... and destroyed the bad when they dominated the good......... u gave pleasure ....... u gave pain....... u gave pain to recognise pleasure...... when i thought i was something i was not complete........ when i understand i am nothing i am complete......... i am always ready to take ur command and act because u r my boss...... if u want me get married then my wife and children r a gift from u....... if u want me stay single and serve the society the satisfaction of selfless service is a gift from you...... if u want me to stay in the Himalayan caves and meditate, then the silence and peace is the gift from u......i surrender my will to u...... because i know u have the highest intelligence and the greatest knowledge...........let ur will always be done because that is always good for me...........
with love.......

Though I have posted the same letter in some other blog too, I have given it here for two reasons.
1. To begin with a prayer.
2.To give you a taste of the mind set of anyone who has understood The Gita.

hi sir,
great that you are too spiritual. no one on this earth i have met in my 25 years life have been as spiritual as you are.
GOD give us all strength, but please keep in mind there is no personal God, Sri Krshna has said in Gita :Idonot take responsibility of anyone deeds, it only the action & reaction between his/her qualities which compel anyone for his/her deeds:.
The lord of tjis u8niverse is pure as pure as the newly born baby, the motive should be to be pure and purity comes from concentration on the Devine. I am not giving 'Lecture' because I donot believe in lectures. Just work honestly with mind on the Divine and you would be always 'PURE'.

God Bless..

Dear Anand,

Thanks for your comment.

There is no personal God. But we can get personal with God.

I think does take respnsibility for the actions of people who surrender unto him.

Krishna says, "Abandoning all Dharmas, take refuge in me alone; I will liberate thee from all sins: grieve not."
