Bhagavad Gita

Is there a Supreme Controller?


What is the importance of the human form of life?
The human form of life is not meant just for eating, sleeping, mating and defending, but for inquiring about the cause of suffering and the true destination of life.

The real problems of life are: Birth, Old Age, Disease and Death.

The three-fold miseries are...  

Those arising from body and mind
Those arising from natural catastrophes
Those arising from other living beings

Can technological advancements solve the problems of life?

What is human life meant for?
Human life is meant for the permanent eradication of miseries by attaining an eternal life of bliss and knowledge.

Start with understanding:
  • Who am I?
  • Who is God?
  • What is my relationship with God?

Do you believe in God?

When we see something that is designed intelligently, we ask about the designer.

What is your conception of God?
God is not a matter of speculation.  He has to be understood through hearing from a true spiritual authority.

Many so-called philosophers have concocted speculative theories about God.  

God is the supreme controller.  We living entities are tiny souls, are not God, nor can we ever become God.

We are eternally servants of God.
