Bhagavad Gita 7-20 :Jnana Vijnana Yoga The yoga of knowledge and applied knowledge O yoga do conhecimento e aplicação do conhecimento

kãmais tais tair hrtajnãnãh
prapadyante 'nyadevatãh
tam tam niyamam asthãya
prakrtyã nitatãh svayã

Some people's knowledge is carried away by desires that are too varied. They worship others gods, observing various rites and rituals as proped by their own nature.(20)
O conhecimento de algumas pessoas é levado por desejos que são muito variados. Eles adoram outros deuses, observando vários ritos e rituais, conforme solicitado por sua própria natureza.(20)

"Not everyone can be a person of wisdom. Among many thousands, only a few try to achieve a state where they perceive the universe as the manifest of Vasudeva, the all pervading father, an undifferentiated state devoid of duality. Others , engrossed in the lower centers , pursue only needs, passion and possessions." 

"Nem todo mundo pode ser uma pessoa de sabedoria.Entre muitos milhares, apenas alguns tentam alcançar um estado em que eles percebem o universo como Vasudeva manifesto, o pai onipresente, um estado indiferenciado, desprovido da dualidade. Outros,absortos nos centros inferiores, apenas atendem às necessidades, paixões e posses."
Whenever people worship, ultimately God the almighty fulfills their ambitions and expectations. Without God, there is nothing. According to the Taittirya Upanishad ( 2:5),
Sempre que as pessoas adoram, em última análise, o todo-poderoso Deus cumpre as suas ambições e expectativas. Sem Deus, não há nada. De acordo com oUpanishad Taittirya (2:5)

ekam eva advitiya brahma  
" God is the one and without equal; He is Brahman" 

"Deus é o único e sem igual; Ele é Brahman"

 vijnãnam devah sarve brahma jyestham upasate  "
 All gods glorify the one, Braman, the eldest."
"Todos os deuses glorificam o único, Braman, o mais velho."

  1. One of the greatest contributions of India to the world is Holy Gita
    which is considered to be one of the first revelations from God. The
    spiritual philosophy and management lessons in this holy book were
    brought in to light of the world by many great Indian saint's effort
    and they call the Bhagavad-Gita the essence of Vedic Literature and a
    complete guide to practical life. It provides "all that is needed to
    raise the consciousness of man to the highest possible level."
    Maharishi reveals the deep, universal truths of life that speak to the
    needs and aspirations of everyone. Your followers in your
    establishment are continuing the mission by keeping this lantern
    burning always knowing the wishes of the modern generations. Arjuna
    got mentally depressed when he saw his relatives with whom he has to
    fight.( Mental health has become a major international public health
    concern now). To motivate him the Bhagavad-Gita is preached in the
    battle field Kurukshetra by Lord Krishna to Arjuna as counseling to do
    his duty while multitudes of men stood by waiting. Arjuna face the
    problem of conflict between emotions and intellect. In almost all of
    the cases, emotions win. Gita teaches Honesty, Sincerity, Truthfulness
    etc. Integrity in public life requires perfect coordination,
    synchoranisation in thoughts, action and deeds. The values one
    believes, should be the same as one’s practices. Today everybody
    wants to accumulate Wealth, Human wants are galloping in geomatric
    progression. Greed is the order of the day. Public Life is filled
    with Private wants, desire. People in power want more power. They
    are power crazy. Power corrupts – obsolute Power Corrupts obsultely.
    Very few people in public life are honest. Men & Women in public life
    should follow the principles :- Integrity : Ethics, fairness in all
    their dealings.
