My Interest is Spiritual

At the last moment before entering a momentous battle, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: "Why should I fight? What is the meaning of life? Where am I going after death?" In response, Krishna, the Supreme Lord, personally brings His friend Arjuna from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment. The Bhagavad Gita, which forms the basis of our Vaishnav theology, contains detailed explanations of the supreme, infinite soul (God), the finite soul (the living entities), karma (work in this world), time, and creation, and lucidly explains the nature of consciousness and the universe. Krishna tells Arjuna that this highest knowledge can be directly perceived by following the joyful process of Bhakti Yoga.

Thus, Religion should be understood to mean, not blind faith, but our intrinsic nature and eternal relationship with God. While reality is one, so also, rightly understood, is religion. Religion is not what we believe to be true. It is our actual relationship with God. Human life should be used to uncover that religion, which is everyone's natural heritage.

We recommend our Friday evening Bhagavad Gita Class to all serious spiritual seekers. To see and participate in the joyous practice of Bhakti Yoga, join us at the Sunday Feast program.

"Not knowing the real value of life, people think that the material body and the land where it is produced are all in all. This is the basic principle behind nationalism, socialism, and communism. Such thinking, which simply bewilders the living entity, is nothing but rascalism. It is due to the darkness of Maya. But as soon as one becomes Krishna Conscious, he is immediately relieved from such misconceptions."

Sri Chaitanya Charitamrta, Madhya 22.32, Purport by Srila Prabhupada.
