Gita Gyana Yagna, Lucknow

Poojya Swamini Amitanandaji conducted a Seven days GITA GYANA YAGNA at Hariom Mandir, Lucknow from 10th to 17th Sept 2017, Its an auspicious time of Pitru Paksha (Shraddha Paksha). Finally was the Bhandara organized for all devotees at the Mandir by the Mandir authorities.

This time pravachans were in the Mandir Hall instead of the main pravachan hall, because of the ongoing renovations there. Here Lord Ganesha, Lord Krishna with Radha, Laxmi-Narayana, Devi Ma, Mahadevji and Jhulelal’s beautiful statues are established along with Guru Granth Saheb, as renovation of Satsang Hall is going on.

The subject matter of the twin discourse series were Gita Chapter 10 (6.30-8.00 PM) and Kena Upanishad 1 (7.30-9.00 AM). Sh Shekhar & Smt Asha Khanna, President of the VM Lucknow, did the Vyasa Peetha Pooja on the first day.

The 10th chapter of Gita, is called Vibhooti Yoga presents the glories of the Ishwar. Even though he is all pervasive, and is everything, still the Glory of Bhagwan is more easily visible wherever there is a ray of Glory.

At the end of this chapter Bhagwan concluded that whatever existent thing there is that has glory, is endowed with any form of wealth, and is distinguished, mighty, that may you know is born of a fraction of my glory. Everything is me. All of this is only one fourth of me in fact, I remain pervading this entire world by only one part of myself.

In the morning session of Kena Upanishad, this Upanishad starts with the question of disciple. Who is the director of the mind? Who impels the mind to alight on its object? At whose command does the Prana proceed to function? At whose command do our sense organs and organs of actions are capable of perceiving and acting? This question shows the state of the mind of disciple that now he is not worried about what is perceived or experienced, this is called “Virakta Mind”. Rishi started showing that “Tattva” with pointers, which is to be experienced as own Self, as a Consciousness, not as an object. The main and important pointer (lakshana) showed that it is beyond “known and unknown” which can be our own Self only. Awakening to that state is the Liberation, the Param Purushartha. One should know this before dying.

On the second last day of Gyana Yagna there was a bhandara for all devotees, which was offered by Hari Om Mandir authorities.
