Chapter4 Hdr

Central New Jersey Regionals were conducted on April 20, 2024



Hari OM!

Welcome to the study and sādhanā of Bhagavad Gītā Chapter 4 - jñānakarmasannyāsayoga!

In this chapter, Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna the attributes of one who has realized the supreme knowledge of Brahmavidya and how through various paths of selfless actions, one can get a glimpse of this knowledge.

In the theme verse that is very familiar to all of us, Lord Krishna tells Arjuna that Brahman is the substratum of all actions, all the instruments used to perform actions, all the wealth that one has gained through one’s actions, all the actors, and verily the goal sought after through selfless actions. Such actions, performed under the guidance of a spiritual Guru, will cleanse one of his  worldly sins and attain oneness with the Brahman. 

This is a profound message to be pondered upon! Let us strive to remember this nature of Brahman in every waking moment that we act in this world!
