Karthik 2018 – CHAD Message from Vaisesika Prabhu – BG Chapter 5

H.G. Vaisesika Prabhu has selected Chapter 5 for Kartik 2018! 

Make a vow to recite Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5 everyday during Kartik from 24 Oct 2018 to 22 Nov 2018


Even though it lasts for only a brief moment, the human form of life is very rare and valuable. In the same way, the brief month of Kartik is also very rare and valuable.” – Kartika Mahatmya by Srila Sanatana Goswami

All other Kartik sacrifices and austerities become glorious by this simple act of reciting a chapter of Bhagavad Gita for few minutes every day without fail.

 As heat purifies gold and increases its luster, so this simple austerity of reading Bhagavad Gita every day burns away the dirty coverings of the soul and brightens one’s spiritual luster.

“As Arjuna set aside his bow and arrows, let us set aside any sense of confidence in our own abilities so that we may hear Krsna’s words with full heart and attention.This kind of submissive hearing is the primary requirement for advancement in spiritual life. The devotee who hears Krsna’s words with a submissive heart immediately feels an ingress of causeless knowledge and detachment.” – H. G. Vaisesika Prabhu
