This question is from lesson 5. Kamya karma arises out of desires. So choosing between career fields can be considered Kamy karma?

Hello


I had recently started with Foundational course, with a purpose of better understanding of the concepts I learned in life, how I had learned them, what they actually meant, and ultimately gaining some clarity to unlearn what's misinterpreted, so as to gain the correct understanding.


My question is in relation to the discussion related to the importance of religion mentioned in Lesson 1 & 2.


I understand that religion mentions practices which assist us in being focused to our ideal and not get distracted out of misunderstanding of freedom,
but are all religion same in this direction?


If that is so, then why are there different religion?
Why are different religion have different practices, restraining (maybe a wrong word to use) an individual from different actions?
What does it mean by the religion?


If someone can guide for this question, or could suggest some source, it would be a great help.


Thank you

We all know most of our ancient scriptures the whole wealth of ancient wisdom has been saved in written documents in Sanskrit language .
It appears at those times Sanskrit was prevailing as common language in Bharat .
I think Mother tongue of Lord Sri Ram and Lord Srikrishna and Pandavas
Even common people at that time should be Sanskrit.
If so how such great language was lost its presence from usage of common people.
Next Question: Right now Sanskrit has been caught attention of Highly educated spiritually inclined Elite across the world but people outside of India appear more respectful on this language than Most of Indians and lot of efforts are seen to pick this Divine Language .
Having said that how to restore this Divine Language status in India again now ?

Hello everyone,


I'm currently enrolled in the Bhagavad Gita online course and have been reflecting deeply on its teachings, particularly regarding the concept of the three gunas (sattva, rajas, and tamas) and their influence on our nature and actions. I'm intrigued by how these teachings apply to our modern choices, especially in selecting a suitable occupation.


In Chapter 18, verses 41-44, the Gita outlines the duties of the different varnas (classes) based on the predominance of gunas. This got me thinking about the contemporary relevance of these teachings. In today's world, where the notion of 'free choice' in careers is prevalent, how do we reconcile this with the Gita's guidance on aligning our occupation with our inherent guna composition?


Additionally, I'm curious about how the Gita addresses the concept of vasanas (subtle impressions of past actions and experiences) and their depletion through following one's swadharma (own duty). How does this align with the idea of pursuing an occupation that might not traditionally align with our guna composition but feels personally fulfilling?


I would greatly appreciate any insights or interpretations from the course materials or your personal studies on how we can apply these teachings to find a fulfilling occupation in today's context, where there is often a mismatch between our inherent nature and our chosen profession.


Thank you for your guidance.

If Brahman (Consciousness) that ever exist without being created by a creator. Why can't it be the universe can also exist without a creator ?


For example : In the dream state, there is a dream world and a dream body. Of course everything is happening in waking mind, which we will come to know after waking up.


Now contrast it with the waking state, there is a waking world and a waking body, Let awakening lead us to the higher state of consciousness.


When dream state can exists without Ishwara, Why can't in the waking state ? Where does Ishwara fit into picture ?
