Bhagavad Gita

What are the problems of the world?

Sorrow and suffering are inevitable part of life.  Knowledge regarding their origin, causes and even categorization helps one to minimize their effect, if not eradicate them.

Three sources of miseries:
Adhyatmika:  Miseries which arise from body and mind
Adhydaivika: Miseries which arise from natural catastrophes
Adhybhautike: Miseries which arise from other living beings

What are the real problems of life?

  1. Common to all
  2. No one wants it
  3. No one can avoid it

The real problems of life are:
  1. Birth
  2. Old Age
  3. Disease
  4. Death
