It has been stated in Sukshm Ved that: -
“Bhajan karo us Rab ka, jo data hai kul sab ka”
In Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15 Verses 1 to 4 and 16-17, it has been stated that this world is like a Peepal tree. A saint who distinctly tells all the parts of this world-like Peepal tree from the root to the three gunas-like branches, (SaH Ved Vit) he knows the essence of the Vedas, that is, he is a Tatvdarshi Saint.
God Himself narrates the knowledge of the nature created by Him and the real spiritual knowledge from His lotus-mouth by Himself appearing on earth. For evidence, please read the following Ved mantras. Please see the photocopies of these mantras, which have been translated by the founder of Arya Samaj, Maharishi Dayanand, and his followers, in the book “Gita Tera Gyan Amrit”. The author (Sant Rampal Das) has corrected the errors in them.
There is evidence in Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 86 Mantra 26-27, Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 82 Mantra 1-2, Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 96 Mantra 16 to 20, Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 94 Mantra 1, Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 95 Mantra 2, Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 54 Mantra 3, Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 20 Mantra 1 that the Supreme God, who is the Creator of all the brahmands, who is the Nurturer of all, is seated in the Lok (place) above all the Bhuvans. (Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 54 Mantra 3)
That God walks from there and comes here on earth along with His body. He destroys the crises of His devotees. His name is Kavirdev i.e. Supreme God Kabir. He meets virtuous souls here. He explains the Tatvgyan to them by uttering from his lotus-mouth. That God is sitting in the Lok above. (Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 86 Mantra 26-27, Mandal no. 9 Sukt 82 Mantra 1-2, and Mandal No. 9 Sukt 20 Mantra 1)
God roams on earth while behaving like poets. (Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 94 Mantra 1)
God inspires the devotees to do bhakti by uttering the speech from His mouth. God discovers the hidden mantras of Bhakti. (Rigved Mandal No. 9 Sukt 95 Mantra 2)
God narrates Tatvgyan through Kavirvaani (Kabir Vaani) by uttering proverbs, couplets, and quatrains. He is Kavirdev (Supreme God Kabir) who appears in the form of a saint. The infinite speeches, which is Tatvgyan, composed by that Supreme God, by that Sage or Saint, are blissful like nectar to his followers.
That Supreme God also acquires the title of a renowned poet amongst the poets. He is called a poet, but He is God. That God is seated in the third place of salvation (Satyalok). Like a human being wears different clothes, similarly that God appears on earth in different appearances. It is clear from the above-mentioned mantras of Rigved that God walks from His Eternal Abode and appears on earth. He meets virtuous souls. Playing the role of a Tatvdarshi Saint, He utters the Tatvgyan through couplets, quatrains and hymns. That Supreme God by staying for 120 years from 1398 to 1518 on the sacred land of India in Kashi city in the form of a (dhaanak) weaver had described the Tatvgyan.
Kabir, Akshar Purush ek ped hai, Kshar Purush vaaki daar |
Teeno deva shaakha hain, paat roop sansaar ||
Important: - A speech is also written in this way in the book Kabir Vaani: -
Kabir, Akshar Purush vriksh ka tanaa hai, Kshar Purush hai daar |
Treydeva shaakha bhaye, paat jaano sansaar ||
Translation: - Information about the part of a tree that is visible outside the ground has been given that consider the trunk of a tree to be “Akshar Purush”. Many big branches arise from the trunk. Consider one of the branches to be “Kshar Purush”. Then imagine three branches to be originating from that big branch. Consider them to be the three gods (Rajgun Brahma ji, Satgun Vishnu ji and Tamgun Shiv ji), and consider the leaves on those branches to be the living beings.
Supreme God Kabir Ji has given all the knowledge in the Tatvgyan. Even in Gita Chapter 4 Verse 32, it has been stated that the (BrahmnH Mukhe) Sachidanand Ghan Brahm i.e. Param Akshar Brahm uttered the information about the yagyas i.e. religious rituals from his lotus-mouth. He has spoken about it in detail in his speech. It is Tatvgyan.
It has been stated in Gita Chapter 4 Verse 34 that only the saints who are recipient of the favour of God understand the Tatvgyan told by God Himself. Understand that Tatvgyan by going to those Tatvdarshi Saints. By prostrating (to salute by lying prone on earth) before them, and politely asking question, those Tatvdarshi Saints will impart Tatvgyan to you.
Supreme God had Himself described this Tatvgyan by appearing on earth. In Gita Chapter 15 Verse 1, the identity of a Tatvdarshi Saint has been described that a saint who knows all the parts of the world-like tree along with the root is a Tatvdarshi Saint.
Now let us know all the parts of the world-like tree: -
Root: - This is Param Akshar Brahm who is the Master of all. He creates everyone. He nurtures everyone. His information has been given in the answer to the question in Gita Chapter 8 Verse 1 in Gita Chapter 8 Verses 3, 8, 9, 10 and 20, 21, 22. His description is also in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 17. Like in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 16, two Purushs (gods) have been mentioned: - one is “Kshar Purush” and the second is “Akshar Purush”. Both of these and all the living beings under them are mortal. Nobody’s soul dies.
In Gita Chapter 15 itself in Verse 17, it has been stated that (Uttam PurushH) i.e. Purushottam/ Supreme God (anyaH) is someone else who (Parmatma iti udaahritH) is called God; (YaH Lok tryam aavishya) who entering into the three loks/worlds (vibharti) nurtures everyone; (AvyayH IshawarH) He is Immortal God. This Param Akshar Brahm is the root of the world-like tree. This is that God about whom Sant Garib Das ji has stated: -
“Bhajan karo us Rab ka, jo data hai kul sab ka”
He is the Master of infinite brahmands. He is even the master and creator of Kshar Purush and Akshar Purush.
Akshar Purush: - Consider him to be the trunk of the world-like tree. He is the master of 7 sankh brahmands (700 quadrillion universes). He is mortal.
Kshar Purush: - He is the Giver of the knowledge of Gita. He is also called “Kshar Brahm”. He is the master of only 21 brahmands. He is mortal.
The three gods (Rajgun Brahma, Satgun Vishnu and Tamgun Shiv) are the three branches: - These are ministers i.e. masters of one department each in the three loks/worlds (Earth, Nether world, and Heaven) built in one brahmand.
Like Shri Brahma ji is the master of Rajgun department, by whose influence all the living beings produce offsprings. Shri Vishnu ji is the master of Satgun department, by which affection is maintained between one another. He provides the results of one’s deeds. Shri Shankar is the master of Tamogun department, as a result of which everyone dies.
Consider the living beings of the world to be the leaves of the world-like tree.
This is the distinct information of all the parts of the world-like tree. Supreme God Kabir Ji had Himself uttered this knowledge from His lotus-mouth. It was written by Shri Dhani Dharmdas (of Bandhavgarh) in Kabir Vaani, Kabir Bijak, Kabir Shabdavli and Kabir Sagar. That Supreme God had told it and currently this Das (Sant Rampal Das) has understood it. This is Supreme God Kabir Ji’s grace that the entire spiritual knowledge is available with me.
Even from the identification of the Tatvdarshi Saint according to Gita Chapter 15 Verse 1, this has been proved that this Das (Sant Rampal Das) is that Tatvdarshi Saint.
A summarised picture of Gita Chapter 15 Verses 1 to 4 and 16 and 17.
Let us again come to the topic “Bhajan karo us Rab ka, jo data hai kul sab ka”.
Till now only this much has been told that one should do bhakti, but now let us clarify that whose bhakti should be done? Should we do bhakti of the three branches 1. Shri Brahma ji Rajgun, 2. Shri Vishnu ji Satgun, 3. Tamgun Shri Shiv ji, or of the bigger branch 4. Kshar Purush, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita, or of the trunk 5. Akshar Purush, or of the root 6. Param Akshar Brahm.
Example: - If we bring a mango plant from the nursery, and plant it in the courtyard of our house or in our field, then how do we plant it?
We dig a pit in the ground. Keeping the roots of the plant in the pit, we cover it with the soil. Then we water the roots of the plant, put manure i.e. we worship the root of the plant. The food from the root goes to the trunk. The trunk after keeping the food needed for itself, sends the rest of it further to a branch. The branch after keeping the food necessary for itself, sends the rest of it to the smaller branches. Likewise the branches send the rest of the food to the leaves. In this way, that plant grows into a tree and bears fruits.
The readers are very wise. They must have understood that which God we should worship.
Supreme God Kabir Ji has described in Sukshm Ved that: -
Kabir, ekae saadhae sab sadhae, sab saadhae sab jaay |
Maali seechaen mool koon, foolae falae aghaay ||
By worshipping one main God, all the gods are worshipped; which is in accordance with the scriptures. Those who worship one or two gods (Shri Vishnu Satgun and Shri Shankar Tamgun) out of the three gods, or worship all three of them as their deity, then because of not being a nonadulterous bhakti as mentioned in Gita Chapter 13 Verse 10, it is useless. Like if a woman does not keep any physical relationship with any man other than her husband, then she is a chaste woman. A woman who keeps contact with many men because of being adulterous is contemptible in the society. She loses her place in her husband’s heart.
It has become clear from the aforesaid pieces of evidence that the self-welfare of a worshipper is possible by the worship of one main Master.
Other evidence: - There is endorsement of this very aforesaid way of worship in Gita Chapter 3 from Verse 10 to 15.
Gita Chapter 3 Verse 10 – Prajapati i.e. the Master of the lineage, in the beginning of the creation, after creating the human beings along with the knowledge of the Yagya i.e. religious rituals, ordered that - you may all prosper by performing religious rituals. These yagyas i.e. religious rituals will bestow the desired results on you. (Gita Chapter 3 Verse 10)
Prosper the gods (branches of the world-like tree) through this scripture-based religious ritual, that is, by performing a religious practice while considering the Complete God (Main Master/Root) as the revered deity, the branches automatically prosper, as has become clear previously. Then those gods (the branches on growing will bear fruits) may prosper you, that is, when we will perform scripture-based religious practice then we will accrue deeds of bhakti. The reward of deeds is given by these three gods (Shri Brahma ji, Shri Vishnu ji, and Shri Shiv ji in the form of branches) only. In this way, by prospering each other, you will attain wellbeing, and you will attain the other God by this. (The Giver of the knowledge of Gita is saying this.) (Gita Chapter 3 Verse 11)
The gods, that is, the branches of the world-like tree, prospered by the yagyas i.e. religious rituals performed in accordance with the scriptures, will definitely keep giving you the desired pleasures without you even asking for them. Like, by irrigating the root of the plant, it grows into a tree and the branches become laden with fruit. Then the branches of that tree will automatically keep bearing fruit every year, that is, the results of the scripture-based acts of bhakti performed by you that got accumulated, will be given by these very gods to you, whether you ask for it or not. If a person does not spend the wealth given by these gods as a result of one’s deeds again in meritorious deeds, then that worshipper is a thief of bhakti. By becoming devoid of virtuous deeds in future, he/she bears loss. (Gita Chapter 3 Verse 12)
The saints who eat the remaining food from a yagya become free from all sins. The meaning is that a Tatvdarshi Saint first of all offers the food to Param Akshar Brahm and then distributes the remaining food among all the devotees. This is the feature of true way of worship. So, that saint also grants all the mantras of bhakti in accordance with the scriptures. As a result of which, the worshipper on becoming free from all the sins goes to Satyalok. And the sinful people, who do not perform religious practices or meritorious deeds according to the injunctions of the scriptures, only cook food to nourish their body. They only eat sin. (Gita Chapter 3 Verse 13)
All the living beings arise from food grain, that is, by eating food grain, the substance for the production of offspring is produced in the body, by which all the living beings are produced. Food grain arises from rain. Rain arises from Yagya, that is, religious rituals performed according to the injunctions of the scriptures. Yagya, that is, religious rituals are performed according to the method mentioned in the scriptures. Consider the actions to have arisen from Brahm, that is, Kshar Purush, because we have come to Brahm’s (Kaal) Lok, so we get everything by doing actions. When we were in Satyalok, we used to get everything without doing any action. Therefore, it has been said that consider the actions to have arisen from Brahm (Kaal), and Brahm (Kaal) originated from the Immortal God (whose description is given in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 17, and read it in the chapter “Creation of Nature”.) This proves that (Sarvgatam Brahm) the Omnipresent Param Akshar God i.e. Param Akshar Brahm alone is always (pratishthit) situated in Yagyas i.e. religious rituals. It means that the Param Akshar Brahm is worthy of being worshipped as a deity in all the religious activities. (Gita Chapter 3 Verse 14-15)
Param Akshar Brahm is other than the Giver of the knowledge of Gita.
The Giver of the knowledge of Gita has himself stated in Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62 that – O Bharat! You may go in the refuge of that Supreme God i.e. Param Akshar Brahm in every respect. Only by the grace of that Supreme God, you will attain supreme peace and the Eternal Place i.e. the Eternal Supreme Abode.
In Gita Chapter 15 Verse 4, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has stated that after finding a Tatvdarshi Saint, slashing the ignorance with the weapon of Tatvgyan, one should search for that supreme place of the Supreme God; having gone where, the worshippers never return to the world, that is, they go to eternal supreme abode, where there is supreme peace; there is no suffering; there is no death; there is no old age, there is no shortage of any object there. One should only worship the Supreme God from whom the world-like tree has originated.
In Gita Chapter 13 Verse 17, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has mentioned that – ‘That ParBrahm, that is, God who is other than me, in other words, Param Akshar Brahm (about whom there is mention in Gita Chapter 8 Verse 3) the light of all lights, is said to be much beyond Maya. That God, who is worthy of being known, is worthy of being attained through Tatvgyan, and is situated in everyone’s heart in a special form.’ (Gita Chapter 13 Verse 17)
Please think: - The Tatvgyan through which Param Akshar Brahm is attained is also called Sukshm Ved. The Giver of the knowledge of Gita does not have its knowledge. Therefore, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has mentioned in Gita Chapter 4 Verses 32 and 34 that (BrahmnH mukhe) Sachidanand Ghan Brahm God i.e. Param Akshar Brahm Himself utters the detailed knowledge of the yagyas i.e. religious rituals from His lotus-mouth which is called the speech of Sachidanand Ghan Brahm. It is called Tatvgyan. After knowing it, the worshipper becomes free from all sins. (Gita Chapter 4 Verse 32)
It is a request to the readers that in the original text of Gita Chapter 4 Verse 32, there is word “BrahmnH”. The translators of Gita, published from Gita Press Gorakhpur or from other places, have interpreted the meaning of ‘BrahmnH’ as ‘Ved’, which is wrong.
Even in Gita Chapter 17 Verse 23, there is word “BrahmnH”. In it, the translators have written the correct meaning “Sachidanand Ghan Brahm”. Therefore, in Gita Chapter 4 Verse 32, it is correct to interpret the meaning of “BrahmnH mukhe” as ‘in the speech uttered from the lotus-mouth of Sachidanand Ghan Brahm’.
In Gita Chapter 4 Verse 34, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has stated that – ‘Understand that Tatvgyan, which the Supreme God utters from His lotus-mouth, by going to Tatvdarshi Saints. By prostrating before them, and by politely asking questions, those Tatvdarshi Mahatmas, who are well-versed with the essence of God, will instruct you in Tatvgyan.’
God-loving Readers! This proves that the Tatvgyan through which Param Akshar Brahm is attained is not in the Holy Book Gita. Gita is a concise form, summary, of the four Vedas (Rigved, Yajurved, Samved and Atharvaved). This proves that the Tatvgyan of Sukshm Ved is not present in any of the prevalent holy books. That knowledge is available with me (Sant Rampal Das). It is not available with anyone in the world.
Question: - Are Shri Brahm ji Rajgun, Shri Vishnu ji Satgun and Shri Shiv ji Tamgun also not venerable as deities? These very gods are worshipped in the Hindu religion. The Hindu religious gurus and Shankaracharyas and others advocate worshipping these very gods as deities. They themselves also worship them. Your statements seem to be untrustworthy. Can you prove this in Gita?
Answer: - The religious gurus of Hindu religion do not have knowledge of their own holy books. For instance, if a teacher is not aware of the content of the books of the curriculum, then that teacher is detrimental for the students. That teacher is not right. Similar is the state of the religious gurus of the Hindu religion.
Evidence: - In Shrimadbhagavat Gita Chapter 7 Verses 12 to 15, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has stated that whatever is happening from the three gunas (genesis from Rajgun Shri Brahma ji, preservation from Satgun Shri Vishnu ji and destruction from Shri Shankar ji), I am its cause, but neither am I in them nor are they in me. (Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12)
Let us first prove that Rajgun is Brahma, Satgun is Vishnu and Tamgun is Shiv Shankar.
In Markandey Puran (published from Gita Press Gorakhpur, Keval Hindi, Sachitra Mota Type), on Page 123, it is written that Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are the main powers of Brahm. These only are the three Gunas; these only are the three gods.
In Shri Devi Puran (published from Shri Khemchand Shri Krishna Chand Venkateshwar Press Mumbai), Third Skand, Chapter 5 Verse 8, it is stated that: -
Yada dayadramna sada Ambike katham ahaM vihitH TamogunH
KamaljH RajogunH katham vihitH ch Shri HariH SatgunH (Devi Puran 3/5/8)
Translation: - God Shiv is asking his mother Durga a question that – O Mother! If you are kind to us, then why did you make me Tamogun? Why did you make Brahma, who originated from a lotus, Rajogun, and why did you make Shri Vishnu ji Satgun?
This proves that 1. Whether you call Rajgun or Brahma ji, 2. Whether you call Satgun or Vishnu ji, 3. Whether you call Tamgun or Shiv ji.
Meaning of Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12: - The Giver of the knowledge of Gita is Kaal Brahm. Evidence is in Gita Chapter 11 Verses 31-32. In Chapter 11 Verse 31, Arjun asked – ‘O Great Man! Who are you?’, although Shri Krishna ji was Arjun’s brother-in-law. Shri Krishna ji’s sister Subhadra was married to Arjun. Please think, if Shri Krishna had been the Giver of the knowledge of Gita, then Arjun would not have to ask – who are you? Would a person not know his brother-in-law? In reality, Kaal Brahm by entering into Shri Krishna’s body was uttering the knowledge of Gita. (For more evidence regarding who spoke the knowledge of Shrimadbhagavat Gita, please read book “Gita Tera Gyan Amrit”, “Gehri Nazar Gita Mein”, “Gyan Ganga”, “Adhyatmik Gyan Gyan” and watch D.V.Ds of sermons. All these are available on our website – www.jagatgururampalji.org. You can download free-of-cost. You can also search on YouTube for keywords – “Satsang Barwala Ashram or Sant Rampal ji”.
The Giver of the knowledge of Gita is Kaal Brahm who is himself saying in Gita Chapter 11 Verse 32 that – ‘I am Kaal. I have appeared now.’ If Shri Krishna ji had been uttering the knowledge of Gita, then he would not have said that ‘I have come now’ because Shri Krishna ji was already present there. Shri Krishna ji had never previously said that ‘I am Kaal’, neither did he ever say in future that ‘I am an enlarged Kaal who destroys everyone.’ He had also shown his Viraat form in the assembly of Kauravs. Every soul enriched with bhakti has a Viraat form. Only a few people can manifest it. It happens according to the power of bhakti.
The Giver of the knowledge of Gita has stated in Gita Chapter 11 Verse 47 that – ‘Arjun! Nobody before you has seen this Viraat form of mine.’ It is a request to the readers that Shri Krishna ji had shown his Viraat Form earlier in the assembly of Kauravs, which along with hundreds of Kauravs was seen by thousands of people present there. Had Shri Krishna been uttering the knowledge of Gita, he would have never said that ‘nobody before you has seen this Viraat form of mine’. It is clear from this that the Giver of the knowledge of Gita is “Kaal Brahm” who has been called as Kshar Purush in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 16; who has said in Gita Chapter 8 Verse 13 that: -
Om iti ekaasksharam Brahm vyavahaaran maam anusmaran |
YaH pryaati tyajan deham saH yaati parmaam gatim ||
Translation: - The Giver of the knowledge of Gita has said that – (Om iti ekaaksharam) there is this one word ‘Om’ (Mam Brahm) for me, Brahm. A worshipper, who (anusamaran) while remembering it (Vyavahaaran) by chanting (yaH pryaati tyajan deham) abandons his body, (saH yaati parmaam gatim) attains the supreme salvation obtained from ‘Om’ mantra. Let me clarify this further.
Following is the account in Shri Devi Puran (Sachitra Mota Type Keval Hindi, Published from Gita Press Gorakhpur), Seventh Skand, on Page 562-563: -
Shri Devi ji imparts knowledge regarding Brahm to King Himalaya. She said that – O King! You may chant ‘Om’ mantra by which you will attain Brahm. This Om mantra is the recitation-mantra of Brahm. Relinquishing everything else and all other religious practices, you may only chant one ‘Om’ mantra. Aim for attainment of Brahm. May you prosper! You will attain Brahm by this. That Brahm resides in the divine sky of Brahm Lok. It has become clear from this Devi Mahapuran that ‘Om’ is the recitation-mantra of Brahm.
Other evidence: - Following is the account in Shri Shiv Mahapuran (published from Gita Press Gorakhpur Sachitra Mota Type), Vidhveshwar Sanhita, on Page 23 to 25: -
Once, Shri Brahma ji Rajgun and Shri Vishnu ji Satogun had a fight. The reason was that Shri Brahma ji went to Shri Vishnu ji’s residence and said that - O Arrogant! You did not pay respect to me by standing up on my arrival. Although you are my son, you do not pay respect to me. I am the creator of the entire world, and so I am everyone’s father. On hearing these words, Shri Vishnu ji became furious from inside but smiling superficially, he said – ‘Come son; I am your father. You have originated from the lotus arising from my navel.’ On this, they both picked up weapons and started fighting with each other. Immediately, Kaal Brahm erected an efflugent pillar in between these two. Due to which, both of them stopped fighting. At that very moment, Kaal Brahm acquiring the form of his son Shiv appeared before them with his wife Durga in the form of Parvati. He said to both of them that – ‘Both of you do not know - who is the god here? It is me, Brahm. This world belongs to me. O Vishnu and Brahma! Both of you by doing meditation have acquired your respective tasks from me. Genesis to Brahma and preservation to Vishnu. Sons, listen! Likewise, I have given the task of destruction and death to Mahesh and Rudra respectively. Then he has said that – there is one word ‘Om’ mantra for remembering me. This one word ‘Om’ has been formed by the collection of five components (A, U, Y, sound and dot). It has become clear to the readers that ‘Om’ one word is the recitation-mantra of Brahm. This has also become clear that Kaal Brahm is separate from Shri Brahma, Shri Vishnu and Shri Mahesh, and the three, Brahma ji, Vishnu ji and Shiv ji, are sons of Kaal Brahm.
Other evidence: - Shri Shiv Mahapuran (Published from Gita Press Gorakhpur, Sachitra Mota Type), Rudra Sanhita, on Page 110, it is written that the three gods, Rajgun Brahma, Satgun Vishnu and Tamgun Shiv, have gunas. I am separate from these.
It has become clear from all these evidence that the Giver of the knowledge of Gita is Kaal Brahm. He has been cursed that he will eat one lakh human beings daily and will produce a lakh and a quarter daily.
Due to this, he has endowed his three sons with one Guna (quality) each. The subtle influence of the gunas emanating from their bodies compels every living being to perform an action. For example, if chillies are sautéed in the kitchen, then it makes one sneeze. Nobody can stop those sneezes. The chilli in materal form is in the kitchen and the guna (quality) emanating from it influenced the people sitting in a distant room.
Similarly, the three gods (Shri Brahma ji, Shri Vishnu and Shri Shiv ji) reside in their respective Loks, but the subtle influence of the gunas emanating from their bodies keeps influencing the living beings of the three worlds (Heaven, Nether World and Earth). Food containing one lakh human beings is prepared for Kaal Brahm by this. Therefore, in Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has said that: -
Whatever is happening from the three gunas, I alone am its cause. Like genesis from Brahma ji, preservation from Satgun Vishnu ji and destruction from Tamgun Shiv ji. Consider all this to be happening for me through them, but neither are they in me nor am I in them, because Kaal Brahm resides separately from these three gods. (Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12)
The whole world is fascinated by these three gunas (Rajgun Brahma, Satgun Vishnu and Tamgun Shiv). They only have knowledge upto these three. They do not know me and (Avyyam) that Immortal God, who are beyond these three gods. (Gita Chapter 7 Verse 13)
Because this supernatural Trigunmayi Maya of mine (i.e. the trap of Maya laid by my sons) is very difficult to overcome, is very wicked. Those worshippers who only worship me (Kaal Brahm), they are able to overcome this Maya (The benefit obtained from the worship of Brahm is more than the worship of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Therefore, it is said that relinquishing the benefit obtained from these three gods, they worship Kaal Brahm. They overcome these three gods, that is, relinquish their worship.) (Gita Chapter 7 Verse 14)
In Gita Chapter 7 Verse 15, it has been stated that: - Those whose knowledge has been stolen by the trap of Maya in the form of the three gunas (Rajgun Brahma ji, Satgun Vishnu ji and Tamgun Shiv ji), that is, those worshippers who do not know the God other than these three gods, they remain adherent to these gods only, considering the nominal benefit obtained from them to be the giver of salvation. They keep worshipping these gods only. Such people have demoniac nature; they are lowest among men, evil-doers and fools, who do not worship me, Kaal Brahm. (Gita Chapter 7 Verse 15)
In Gita Chapter 14 Verse 19, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has stated that when a Drishta i.e. a listener of Tatvgyan, who worships the three Gunas (Rajgun Brahma, Satgun Vishnu and Tamgun Shiv) as deities, does not change his old beliefs, that is, he does not consider anyone other than these three gods to be the Creator and also obtains the knowledge of the Complete God who is separate from these three gods, he remains in my trap alone. (Gita Chapter 14 Verse 19)
In Gita Chapter 14 Verse 20, the Giver of the knowledge of Gita has stated that a human being only by overcoming these three gods, that is, only by relinquishing the worship of the three gods, becomes free from birth and death, old age and all other sufferings, and attains supreme bliss, that is, attains the supreme peace and the eternal supreme abode mentioned in Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62 and Chapter 15 Verse 4.
Gist: - Those who worship the three gods (Brahma ji Rajgun, Vishnu ji Satgun and Shiv ji Tamgun) have been said to have demoniac nature, lowest among men, evil-doers and fools. Meaning is that one should not worship these gods.
Hirnaykashyap had worshipped Shri Brahma ji Rajgun. He became enemy of his own son Prahlad, and became known as demon, and died a miserable death.
Ravan had worshipped Shri Shiv ji Tamgun. He kidnapped the mother of the universe, Sita, and made an evil attempt to make her his wife. He became known as a demon and died a terrible death. Bhasmasur also worshipped Tamgun Shiv ji. He also became known as a demon and died a miserable death.
Those who worship Shri Vishnu ji are known as Vaishnavs. Once a Kumbh festival was held in Haridwar. All the saints (Giri, Puri, Naath, Naga) arrived there to have a bath on that occasion. Nagas are the worshippers of Shri Shiv ji Tamgun, and Shri Vaishnavs are the worshippers of Shri Vishnu Satgun. Everybody started making preparations to have a bath on the ‘Har ki Paudi’. They were approximately 20 thousand in number. After some time, the same number of Vaishnav Sadhus reached on ‘Har Ki Paudi’. Vaishnav Sadhus said to the Nagas, “We are superior. We will have the bath first.” On this very matter, they started fighting. They started fighting with swords, daggers, knives, and approximately 25 thousand sadhus of both the sides, the worshippers of the three gunas, got severed and died.
Therefore, in Gita Chapter 7 Verses 12 to 15, the worshippers of the three gunas (Rajgun Brahma ji, Satgun Vishnu ji and Tamgun Shiv ji) have been said to be of demoniac nature, lowest among men, evil-doers and fools.
This proves that those, who worship Shri Brahma Rajgun, Shri Vishnu Satgun and Shri Shiv Tamgun, are fools, demons, lowest among men, and evil-doers, that is, their worship has been forbidden in Shrimadbhagavat Gita. It is futile to worship them as deities.
FAQs about "Which God Should Be Worshipped According to Gita"
Q.1 Who is considered the Supreme God according to our spiritual texts?
According to our Holy scripture, the Supreme God is described as Param Akshar Brahm, who is the root of the world-like tree. The analogy of a tree portrays the Supreme God as the root who is above Kshar Purush (the Giver of the knowledge of Gita), Akshar Purush (the trunk), and the three gods (Rajgun Brahma, Satgun Vishnu, and Tamgun Shiv) and the leaves (representing living beings). The worship of the root (Param Akshar Brahm) is the way to achieve all benefits and the way to salvation. According to Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62, seeking refuge in this Supreme God is emphasized for attaining supreme peace and the Eternal Supreme Abode.
Q.2 What is the significance of the references to various mantras from the Rigveda?
The references to Rigved mantras aim to elucidate the identity and characteristics of the Supreme God, emphasizing that this God comes to Earth, imparts spiritual knowledge to virtuous souls, and is known as a famous poet but He is actually Kavirdev (Supreme God Kabir Ji).
Q. 3 Are the Hindu deities Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva Ji worthy of worship?
The Shrimad Bhagwat Gita Ji, in Chapter 7 Verses 12 to 15, indicates that those who worship the three gunas (Rajgun Brahma, Satgun Vishnu, and Tamgun Shiv) are considered to have a demoniac nature, being deemed as evil-doers and fools. Worshiping these gods as deities is discouraged in the Gita Ji.
Q.4 What significance does Gita Ji hold in identifying an Enlightened (Tatvdarshi) Saint?
Gita Chapter 15, particularly Verses 1 to 4, provides characteristics of a Tatvdarshi Saint. Such a saint comprehends the entire structure of the world (akin to a tree) from the root to its various components.
Q.5 What does Gita Ji suggest about the worship of multiple gods versus worshipping a single main God?
Holy Gita Ji advocates for the worship of one main Master (Param Akshar Brahm) over the worship of multiple gods. It implies that worshipping of only one God leads to all the benefits and salvation, while worshipping multiple deities is ineffective.
Q.6 How does the Gita advise seekers to find liberation?
Seekers are advised in Gita Ji Chapter 4 Verse 34 to seek the knowledge of Tatvgyan, which is uttered by the Supreme God, through Tatvdarshi Saints. This knowledge, not found in the Gita Ji, is considered vital for achieving supreme peace and the Eternal Supreme Abode, as emphasized in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 4.
