Bhagwat Gita Gyan: The Adharmic Mires of Materialism

Must Read

As the world spins out of control in Kalyuga, the verses of the Bhagavad Gita anchor the devout Sanatani soul to Dharma. The increasing love for fame, glory, and money exposes the need to satisfy the ego stuck in materialism. Thus, the Maya of the Kalyug pulls each Sanatani atman towards a path of fulfilling the needs of the three gunas. Consequently, the cases in modern news demonstrate the depths of Kalyug’s humanity has sunk into.

The material veil covers the inner eye and diverts the mind from the need of the atman. Consequently, those stuck in the pleasure of materialism attempt to unsettle the wise on the path of Sanatani truths. Thus, let’s explore the Bhagwat Gita Gyan on the path of spirituality that transcends material needs. Let’s talk about the eternal truths of Lord Krishna’s words that stand true even in these modern times.

Bhagwat Gita Gyan on Mires of Materialism: Shloka – 2.45

The Gita in Today's World - Pragyata

त्रैगुण्यविषया वेदा निस्त्रैगुण्यो भवार्जुन।

निर्द्वन्द्वो नित्यसत्त्वस्थो निर्योगक्षेम आत्मवान्।।2.45।।

Meaning: The Vedas expound the knowledge of the three gunas, O Arjuna. Rise above these three gunas. Free yourself from the duality of nature and unlock the Unchanging-truth! Leave the concerns of material acquisitions and preservations, and find the truth in the realization of ‘Self’.

Bhagwat Gita Gyan:

The Vedas are scriptures that deal with the materialism of the Sansaar explained via the three gunas; sattva, rajas, and tamas. They guide humanity on how to function in this material world. However, to unlock the truth of existence, the mind must be freed from the three gunas and the duality of nature. Thereafter, humans must seek the never-changing truth beyond the material realm to find the truth of atman or self. Detachment from material pursuits is the only path to spiritual realization.

प्रकृतेर्गुणसम्मूढाः सज्जन्ते गुणकर्मसु।

तानकृत्स्नविदो मन्दान्कृत्स्नविन्न विचालयेत्।।3.29।।

Meaning: The delusions of the materials gunas of the natural world attach the minds of humans to the fruits of their actions or Karma. The wise ignore such individuals and do not let them unsettle them from their paths.

Bhagwat Gita Gyan:

The transient fruits of labor or karma in the material and natural world entice unsuspecting human minds. Consequently, fools attach undue importance to the end-result or pleasure achieved in the material world. However, words or actions of such individuals do not unsettle those who walk the path of wisdom and eternal truth. The wise must ignore such humans fooled into complacency by material needs or pleasures. 

Lessons for The Modern Sanatani

The love for material recognition is peaking in the fast-paced modern world. The never-ending greed of ignorant humans inspires unspeakable acts of Adharma. Some smother their child in hate for their spouse, some kill the spouse in the name of love, and some equate piety to politics. The profit-loss bottom lines and end-results are the nets of delusions cast on the minds by the mires of materialism. These worldly gunas of nature entice unsuspecting human mind away from the realization of self!

Modern Sanatanis should ignore the rat race of material acquisitions. They must distinguish the path of Karma and the attachment to the results of Karma. Moreover, they must understand that attachment to fruits of Karma is equivalent to being lost in Maya Jaal. Thus, they must do their duty with detachment to results or material gains to attain true knowledge of self.

Apart from rejecting material attachments, Modern Sanatanis are advised to ignore the deluded around them. The agents of materialism repeatedly attempt to unsettle the wise who reject it. Thus, anyone stuck in material pleasures tries to pull those around him into the same murky waters. Modern Sanatanis must ignore such confused minds and rise higher in their quest for the greater truth while fulfilling their Karma.

Therefore, Gita Gyan asks Sanatanis to transcend material influences with inner resilience. Amid external incitements, Sanatanis should embrace the art of detachment to discover their true selves. As Kalyug pulls the weak-minded into materialistic mires, Gita Gyan acts like an anchor of Dharma for those brave enough to look for it. Let’s embrace Sanatani truths amid the chaos of Adharmic influence! Let’s ignore those who peddle half-truths! May those who attempt to unsettle a Sanatani’s mind from the path of Dharma be disregarded in the face of Gita’s Gyan! May we all find the path to the Sanatana truth of Self!
