Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7

After Gaining This Knowledge There is Nothing More to Know

In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 1 to 12, it is said that Arjun, whosoever is engaged in me (Brahm) with full attachment and the knowledge by which my supreme devotee will become fully knowledgeable, by this knowledge he will come to know that what is the state of everyone. He will become acquainted with the state of Sri Brahma Ji, Sri Vishnu Ji, and Sri Shiv Ji and Brahm. And on finding a Complete Saint will endeavour to do bhakti of Tat Brahm (the Supreme God). After understanding this knowledge there would be nothing else to know. Now I will impart that knowledge. Of thousands devotees, one makes an effort to attain God who is fully acquainted with me that actually I am Kaal. Then that devotee strives hard to become free from the cycle of birth-death. It is also evident in Sri Devi Bhagwat Mahapuran, published from Gita Press Gorakhpur, edited by Sri Hanuman Prasaad Poddar, Chimal Goswami, on page 123. It is written that God Shiv, while praising Durga (Prakriti Devi) said, “Shive! You are very smart in creation of the world, mother! Earth, water, air, sky, fire, sense of knowledge, sense of action, intellect, mind and pride – all these are you only. Your gunas are always competent in the creation, preservation and destruction of this world. We (Brahma, Vishnu, Shankar) born of the same three gunas are always eager to work according to the regulations. My eight types of Maya which is divided into eight parts – which are the five elements and the three (mind, intellect, pride) – these are the eight parts. These are cooperative in the creation of all the living beings like, due to mind, a living being developd numerous desires. Desire only is the casue of birth. A gross body (which is visible to naked eyes) is made up of the five elements and the subtle body (which is not visible to the naked eyes) is made by the cooperation of mind, intellect and pride. And Durga (Prakriti) herself by forming other three forms of her, Mahalakshmi, Mahasavitri and Mahagauri, with the cooperation of Kaal (Brahm), gives birth to the three sons; Sri Brahma Ji endowed with Rajgun, Sri Vishnu Ji endowed with Satgun, and Sri Shiv Ji endowed with Tamgun. Then by creating a maze (by doing forgery) creates another three female forms of her and after marrying the three gods (Sri Brahma Ji, Sri Vishnu Ji and Sri Shiv Ji) gives rise to Kaal’s living beings. One who is chetan Prakriti (Sheranwali), with her cooperation Kaal gives rise to all living beings. Evidence is in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 14 Verse 3 to 5. I am the cause of the destruction and production of all the living beings of the world. (Because Kaal has to consume one lakh human beings everyday.) In the seventh Verse, has said that this whole world is entangled in me (Brahm). Kabir Sahib Ji Maharaj says that

Sur nar munijan tetis karodi
bandhe sab Jyoti Niranjan dori

Then Brahm says that I am flavour, the characteristic of water, I am light, and am the (sacred syllable) Omkaar (Om) in Vedas. I am the superiormost among humans and know me only as the cause of all the living beings (a being in gross and subtle body). The brilliance of the brilliant is also from me. I (Kaal) am the intelligence of the intelligent (whenever I wish, I grant them wisdom and whenever I wish, I corrupt their wisdom) and also the austerity of the ascetics. Because he grants kingdom to the ascetics and there also, it is only man/mind (Kaal) who enjoys. I (Kaal) am the strength of the powerful and am the sex present in all the living beings. Like, previously, by giving strength to Arjun made him a warrior. Won the battle; Arjun killed greatest of the warriors and then Kaal took the strength away. When God Sri Krishna was killed by a hunter, then Arjun went to Dwarika to bring the Gopis (16000 mistresses of Krishna Ji). On the way, Arjun was beaten by the Bheels. They also looted the gopis and took some Gopis with them. At that time Kaal rendered Arjun powerless. Because of which Arjun could not even move the ‘Gandeev’ bow.

What are the Three Gunas? With Evidence – Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7

The three gunas (qualities) are Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun Shiv Ji. They have taken birth from Brahm (Kaal) and Prakriti (Durga) and trio are mortal.

Evidence: – Sri Shiv Mahapuran, published from Gitapress Gorakhpur, edited by Sri Hanuman Prasad Poddar, on page no. 110, Bhagavad Gita Chapter 9, Rudra Sanhita “So, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiv, the three gods have qualities, but Shiv (Brahm-Kaal) is said to be beyond qualities.”

Second evidence: – Srimad devibhagwat Puran, published from Gitapress Gorakhpur, edited by Sri Hanuman Prasad Poddar and Chiman Lala Goswami, Skand 3, Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5, page no.123: – God Vishnu prayed to Durga: said that I (Vishnu), Brahma, and Shankar are existing by your grace. We have birth and death. We are not eternal. Only you are eternal, are mother of the world (jagat janani), are Prakriti, and Goddess Sanatani (eternal/existing for time immemorial). God Shiv said: If god Brahma, and god Vishnu have taken birth from you, then am I, Shankar, who was born after them and perform tamoguni leela (divine play), not your son? Henceforth, you are my mother too. Your gunas are always present everywhere in this world’s creation, preservation, and destruction. The three of us (Brahma, Vishnu, and Shankar) born of these three gunas (qualities) are always at work.

Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiv (Trigun Maya) do not let the Living Being to Become Liberated

Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 12: Whatever is happening from the three gunas, consider it to be happening from me only. Like the cause of the act of production by Rajgun (Brahma), preservation by Satgun (Vishnu) and destruction by Tamgun (Shiv) is Kaal God only. Then has said that I do not exist within them. Because Kaal is quite far away (resides in the twenty-first brahmand in Nijlok) but Kaal only enjoys in the form of man (mind) and operates all the living beings and Sri Brahma Ji, Sri Vishnu Ji and Sri Shiv Ji like a machine through a remote.

In holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12 to 15, Brahm is stating that Arjun! Now I will impart that knowledge to you, knowing which, there would be nothing else left to know. The narrator of Gita, Brahm, is saying that for the living beings of my twenty-one brahmands the scripture-based sadhna begins from my worship only, which has been mentioned in the Vedas. The intellect of living beings, who are in my jurisdiction, is in my hand. I am only master in the twenty-one brahmands. Therefore (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12 to 15) whatever is happening through the three gunas (creation of living beings by Rajgun-Brahma Ji, preservation by Satgun-Vishnu Ji, destruction byTamgun-Shiv Ji) – I (Brahm-Kaal) am only its main cause. (Because Kaal has the curse of killing one lakh human beings and eating their grime) Those sadhaks who instead of doing my (Brahm’s) sadhna, perform sadhna of the Trigunmayi Maya (Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun-Shiv Ji) and obtain the shortlived benefits, consequently suffer more; besides has indicated that I (Brahm-Kaal) can give more benefits than these, but these foolish sadhaks because of absence of Tattavgyan (the absolute knowledge) keep doing sadhna of only these three gunas (Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun-Shiv Ji). Their intellect is limited to only these three gods. Therefore these with demoniac nature, lowest among men, those who do evil acts like performing sadhna opposite to the scriptures, these fools do not worship me (Brahm). This evidence is also in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 16 Verse 4 to 20 and 23, 24; Bhagavad Gita Chapter 17 Verse 2 to 14 and also in 19 and 20.

Please Ponder: Ravan did bhakti considering God Shiv Ji as Mritunjay (who has won over death), ajar-amar (immortal), and Sarveshwar (Lord of all, the Supreme Being), offered his head by beheading himself ten times. As a result of which Ravan obtained ten heads during the battle, but did not get liberated; he was called a demon. This fault is of Ravan’s Gurudev. That fool (a quack) did not understand the Vedas properly and from his own thought, described God Shiv only as the Supreme God, and the innocent soul, Ravan, trusted his fake Gurudev and ruined his life and family.

Once, there was a devotee named Bhasmagiri, who, considering Shiv Ji (Tamgun) as his deity, did sadhna for 12 years in Sheershaasan (headstand), bound Shiv Ji with a promise and obtained bhasmkanda (a braceletwhich when kept over someone’s head turns that person into ashes on saying ‘Bhasm’). Tried to kill God Shiv. The aim was that after obtaining bhasmkanda, I will kill God Shiv Ji and make Parvati Ji my wife. God Sri Shiv Ji ran in fear. Then Sri Vishnu Ji made him do Gandath dance and turned him into ashes with the same bhasmkanda. That worshipper of Shiv Ji (tamgun) came to be known as a demon.

Hrinyakshipu worshipped God Brahma Ji (Rajgun) and came to be known as a demon.

Once upon a time, around 325 years ago, there was an occasion of Kumbh festival (of those whose sadhna is opposite to the scriptures) on the steps of Har in the old Haridwar. All the sages (worshippers of the Trigun/the three gunas) reached there to take bath. Giri, Puri, Naath, Naga etc are the worshippers of God Sri Shiv Ji (Tamgun), and Vaishno are worshippers of God Sri Vishnu Ji (Satgun). An intense fight broke between Naga and Vaishno sages on the issue of taking bath first. Approximately 25000 (twenty-five thousand) Trigun (of the three gunas) worshippers died. Please think yourself that a person who can cause a massacre on a trivial matter is a saint or a demon. Even if an ordinary man is taking bath somewhere and someone comes and requests for some place to bathe, then for the sake of courtesy, one normally says, “Come, you also take bath here”, and try to accommodate the other person. Therefore in holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12 to 15, it is said that those whose knowledge has been stolen by the pooja of my Trigunmayi Maya (Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun-Shiv Ji), they are hungry of pride and praise, have demoniac nature, are lowest among men i.e. their conduct is even worse than a common man, miscreants, fools, they do not even do my bhakti.

In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 16 to 18, God (Brahm), who is the narrator of holy Gita Ji, is stating that four types of sadhaks do my bhakti (Brahm sadhna). First are Artharthi (who desire for wealth), who keep doing jantra-mantra and hawan etc by Ved mantras only. Second, Aart, who keep doing jantr-mantra and hawan by Ved mantras to ward off misfortunes; third, Jigyasu, who intend to know the knowledge of God; who only by accumulating knowledge become speakers, and on the basis of excellence in knowledge become superior to others, become learned and because of arrogance become devoid of bhakti. Fourth are Gyani; those devotees who have come to know that one does not get a human body again and again. If one does not do sadhna of God in this, then life will go in vain. Then studied the Vedas, from which came to know that above the three gunas (Brahma-Vishnu-Shiv Ji), Brahm (Kshar Purush) and ParBrahm (Akshar Purush) is Purna Brahm and one should only do His bhakti and not of the other gods. Those knowledgeable, noble souls like me and I like them because rising above the three gunas (Rajgun-Brahma, Satgun-Vishnu, Tamgun-Shiv Ji) atleast they started doing my (Brahm) sadhna, which is better than that of the other gods, but they, based on their own discussions, kept doing sadhna for years with ‘Om’ naam which is the mantra in the Vedas only for Brahm’s sadhna considering it to be mantra of the Purna Brahm. They did not attain god, but attained other supernatural powers. Because they did not find the Tattavdarshi saint mentioned in Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verse 34 and in Holy Yajurved Chapter 40 Mantra 10, who tells about the sadhna of Purna Brahm with three mantras; therefore, even the Gyanis by doing Brahm (Kaal) sadhna remained in the cycle of birth and death.

A learned, noble soul, Maharishi Chunak Ji read the Vedas and considering ‘Om’ to be the mantra for bhakti of one Supreme God, did sadhna for years by doing jaap of this naam. There was a Mandhata Charvarti king (a Chakravarti king is one who rules over the whole Earth). He challenged the kings under him to fight. He tied a signboard in the neck of a horse and showed it around the entire kingdom. The condition was that he who does not accept the subjection to king Mandhata will have to fight. He should capture this horse. Nobody captured the horse. Maharishi Chunak Ji became aware of this that the king has become very arrogant. He said that I accept the fight with this king. The fight started. Mandhata King had an army of 72 crore soldiers. He divided it into four parts and attacked Maharishi Chunak with one division (18 crore soldiers) of the army. On the other hand, Chunak Ji made four bombs out of his earnings of sadhna and destroyed all the four divisions of army of the king.

Important: By bhakti of Sri Brahma Ji, Sri Vishnu Ji, Sri Shiv Ji, Brahm and ParBrahm, one has to bear the fruits of both sins as well as the virtuous deeds; virtuous deeds in heaven and sins in hell and has to bear numerous sufferings in the bodies of 84 lakh life forms. For instance, the learned soul, Sri Chunak Ji collected earnings of jaap of ‘Om’ naam and finished some in supernatural power (by forming four bombs); as a result of which was known as Maharishi. After bearing the fruit of some sadhna in great heaven will then go to hell, and then will bear hardships one after another by acquiring the bodies of the 84 lakh species of life. And he will also have to bear the result of the killings of 72 crore soldiers, whom he had killed by power of his word. Whether one kills someone with a weapon or with word-like sword, God gives equal punishment to both. When that Maharishi Chunak Ji’s soul will be in the body of a dog, he will have wounds in his head, and the souls of those soldiers will become worms and take their revenge by infesting it. Sometimes his leg will break and sometimes his hind limbs will become paralysed and will only drag with forelimbs, and will definitely have to bear the sufferings of heat and cold and intolerable pain in different ways.

Hence, Brahm (Kaal), the narrator of Holy Gita Ji, is himself saying in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 18 that all these knowledgeable souls are as such noble, but, because of not finding the Tattavdarshi Saint who tells about the real sadhna of the three mantras of the Supreme God, all these remained dependent on the hope of attaining only my (anuttamam’) inferior most salvation (state); which means, even my sadhna is inferior/bad. Therefore, in Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62, has said that oh Arjun! Go in the refuge of that Supreme God in every respect. By only His grace, you will attain supreme peace and eternal, supreme abode (Satlok). Brahm (Kaal) narrated the Holy Gita Ji by entering into Sri Krishna’s body in a ghost-like manner. Then, several years later, Brahm (Kshar Purush) himself wrote Holy Gita Ji and Holy four Vedas by entering like a ghost into Maharishi Vyas Ji’s body. In these, the knowledge of – how does God look like, how to do His bhakti and what will one achieve – is complete. But the way of worship is only upto Brahm (Kshar Purush) i.e. Jyoti Niranjan-Kaal.

For the bhakti of the Supreme god (Purna Brahm) in Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verse 34, God (Brahm), the narrator of Holy Gita, is himself stating that for the bhakti of and for attaining the Supreme God, find a Tattavdarshi Saint. And then whatever he tells, do accordingly. God, the narrator of Holy Gita Ji, is saying that I do not know the complete knowledge and the way of worship of the Supreme God. Regarding his own sadhna, is saying in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 8 Verse 13 that ‘Om’ is the only one word for my bhakti. By chanting it unto the last breath (tyajan’ deham) you will attain my ultimate salvation. Then in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 18, has said that the God-loving souls did not find a Tattavdarshi saint, who knows the sadhna of the Purna Brahm, and therefore those noble souls are dependent on my inferior most ultimate salvation. (God, the narrator of Holy Gita, is himself saying that the salvation i.e. liberation obtained from my sadhna is also the inferior most). In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15 from Verse 1 to 4, has said that this is an upside down world-like tree, whose root is Purna Brahm i.e. Aadi Purush Parmeshwar and below are the three gunas- (Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji and Tangun-Shiv Ji) -like branches.

Brahm, entered like a ghost in Sri Krishna’s body, is saying that I do not know the complete knowledge of this creation of nature. Therefore, here in this discussion of Gita, I do not have full information. A saint, who has full knowledge of the above-mentioned world-like tree i.e. on the subject of the creation of nature, will give a distinct description of the root, trunk, branche and the smaller branches; know him as (vedvit) Tattavdarshi. Then after taking updesh/spiritual instruction from that completely knowledgeable (Tattavdarshi) saint, one should properly search for that Param Pad Parmeshwar (Supreme God). Having gone where, one never has birth-death i.e. one attains the eternal salvation, and even I (God Brahm, the narrator of Gita, is saying that) am surrendered to that Primeval Supreme God (Param Purush Parmeshwar). Therefore, one should only do sumiran of that Purna Parmatma (SatPurush) with full determination.

In Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verse 5, the narrator of Gita, God (Brahm) is saying that oh Arjun! You and I have had many births i.e. it is clear that Brahm is also a perishable God (Kshar Purush). Therefore in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15 Verse 16-17, there is a distict description of the three Gods – two Gods are Kshar Purush (Perishable God – Brahm) and Akshar Purush (Imperishable God – Akshar Brahm ); but, in reality, imperishable/immortal is another God, other than these two, who is actually known as the Eternal Parmatma Parmeshwar (Supreme God). Like, a white cup made up of clay which is entirely impermanent, similarly Brahm (Kshar Purush) and the living beings of his twenty-one brahmands are perishable. The second cup made up of steel also rusts and becomes destroyed. Therefore, this much imperishable is the cup of steel; similarly, Akshar Purush (ParBrahm) and the living beings of his seven sankh brahmands, even though appear to be imperishable, are perishable i.e. in reality, are not imperishable. The third cup is of gold which actually is made up of an imperishable metal. Its existence never ends. Likewise, in reality, Purna Brahm (Param Akshar Purush) and the hans-souls (deva) residing in His asankh (infinite) brahmands are eternal, and He only, by entering in the three worlds/loks fosters everyone. KavirDev i.e. God Kabir has Himself described the nature created by Him.

Kabir, Akshar Purush ek ped hai, Niranjan vaaki daar
Teeno deva shaakha hain, paat roop sansaar

Akshar Purush (ParBrahm) is the trunk of the upside-down tree and Jyoti Niranjan (Kshar Purush-Brahm) is a thick branch, and beyond that thick branch, are three branches – the three gunas (Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun-Shiv Ji). But the base (roots) is Purna Purush (Param Akshar Brahm, SatPurush). The tree receives nutrition from the roots i.e. from Purna Brahm. Therefore the protector of the lineage is only that Param Akshar Brahm, whose evidence is given in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 8 Verse 1 to 3. Arjun asked – Who is that ‘Tat’ Brahm, about whom you have stated in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse that after knowing Tat Brahm (that Supreme God) and the entire (spiritual) adhyatm knowledge (Tattavgyan), a devotee should strive to become free from birth-death. Brahm, narrating the Holy Gita, has answered that He is Param Akshar Brahm (Purna Brahm). In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 8 Verse 6, 7, has said that it is a rule that in the final moments, while remembering whichever God (Brahm, ParBrahm, Purna Brahm), a devotee leaves his body, he goes to him (that God) only.

Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 19: In this mantra, Brahm (Kaal) is saying that even my sadhna is done by only a few; only a fortunate person does it after many births; otherwise, one’s intellect does not rise above the bhakti of the lower gods, Sri Brahma Ji, Sri Vishnu Ji, Sri Shiv Ji and other gods, ghosts and pitras (spirits of deceased ancestors). But it is very difficult to find a saint who tells that only the Supreme God is worthy of being worshipped; He is the Creator of the whole universe; He only fosters and protects everyone, is the Almighty. In reality, He only is Vasudev. The meaning of Vasudev is ‘the Master of all’. Like, Sri Brahma Ji, Sri Vishnu Ji, and Sri Shiv Ji are ministers (lords) of one department each in one brahmand. Sri Brahma Ji of Rajogun department, Sri Vishnu Ji of Satgun department and Sri Shiv Ji of Tamgun department; they are not the masters of all i.e. are not Vasudev. Consider Brahm (Kaal) as a Chief Minister in the twenty-one brahmands, which are under his control; he is not the master of all i.e. is not Vasudev. Seven sankh such brahmands are of ParBrahm (Akshar Purush); he is the master of only seven sankh brahmands; is not the master of all i.e. is not Vasudev. And Purna Brahm (Param Akshar Brahm – SatPurush) has infinite brahmands. In reality, Purna Brahm is the Master of all i.e. is Vasudev. Just as, is the root (Purna Brahm) of the upside-down tree from which the whole trunk (Akshar Purush), bigger branch (Kaal-Brahm) and smaller branches (the three gunas, Rajgun-Brahma, Satgun-Vishnu and Tamgun-Shiv Ji) receive nutrition. Therefore, Purna Brahm only sustains everyone. A saint who gives this description is extremely rare. Only after finding him, one will attain complete liberation/salvation; otherwise, living beings will remain trapped in Kaal’s web.

Only Foolish People Worship other gods (Rajgun Brahma Ji, Satgun Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun Shiv Ji) – Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7

In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 20, which has continuous connection with Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 15: –

In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 15, has said that those whose knowledge has been stolen by the Trigun Maya (those who are limited to the pooja of Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, Tamgun-Shiv Ji and the short-lived happiness obtained from these), such inferior persons who have demoniac nature, evil-doers and fools, do not worship me. In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 20, has said that because of those material desires, those whose wisdom has been stolen away, they, inspired by their inherent nature, relying on the rule endowed with darkness of ignorance, worship other gods. In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 21, has said that the form of whichever god, a devotee wants to worship, I make that devotee’s faith firm in that particular God.

In Bhagavad Gita summary Chapter 7 Verse 22, it is said that endowed with that faith, he worships that god and obtains the objects of his desire from that god, ordained by me alone. Like, a chief minister says that the lower officials are my servants only. I have given them some powers. The benefit which, those who are dependent on these (officials) receive, is also given by me only, but is not a complete benefit. It is mentioned in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 23 that, but that fruit attained by those slow-witted men is perishable. The worshippers of gods go to gods. (Madbhakt) Matavlambi, the bhakts who do bhakti according to the scriptures, attain me i.e. nobody is out of Kaal’s trap.

Important: – In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 20 to 23, has said that whatever sadhna, of whichever pitra, ghost, gods-goddesses etc, they perform by nature, I (Brahm-Kaal) only make those slow-witted people (bhakts) attracted towards that particular god. Whatever benefits those ignorant devotees obtain from the gods, I (Kaal) only have given some powers to those gods. On that basis only, their (of the gods) worshippers will go to gods. But that pooja/way of worship of those foolish worshippers will soon take them to the 84 lakh births and those who worship me (Kaal), they go to Tapatshila (the hot rock) and then to my great heaven (Brahmlok), and thereafter in the cycle of birth-death i.e. Brahm’s sadhna is much superior to that of god-goddesses and Brahma, Vishnu, Shiv and Mother Durga. Although the duration of stay in heaven of a devotee, who has gone in the great heaven, is one Mahakalp (a great age), but, after experiencing the pleasures of the salvation of the virtuous acts in the great heaven, the sufferings in hell and in the lives of other living beings will remain. There is no complete liberation/salvation i.e. there is no freedom from Kaal’s trap.

Jyoti Niranjan (Kaal) Never Appears in a Form in a Gross Body (visible to naked eyes)

In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 24, God Brahm is saying that the fools do not know my very bad permanent nature (Kaal-form). They consider, the (unmanifested) invisible me, having appeared in form (manifested) in the form of Sri Krishna i.e. I am not Sri Krishna. The purport of ‘do not know my very bad eternal nature’ is that my nature as Kaal is to eat living beings; to make them donkeys, dogs, pigs; to give them various types of sufferings one after another and on the basis of virtuous deeds, send them to heaven; this is my never-ending (eternal) nature i.e. I am a real Kaal. I never appear in form in the form of Sri Krishna and Sri Ramchandra. This is my inferior, permanent and eternal policy. These gods have a body formed of Maya and these are sent by me alone and I (Kaal) keep performing all my tasks by entering into them.

Garib, anant koti avatar hain, Maya ke Govind
Karta ho-ho kar avtare, bahut pade jam fand

In Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 25, has said that I remain hidden by my (Yogmaya) supernatural power and reside in my highest private place in my twenty-first brahmand. Therefore I am not visible. Hence, has said that I never take birth i.e. never appear in shape in a gross body in the form of Sri Krishna. This foolish world does not know this eternal policy i.e. these ignorant group of people consider me to be Krishna; I am not Krishna. It is clear from this that Kaal only is speaking by entering into Sri Krishna’s body. Otherwise Sri Krishna was already present in form in front of Arjun. It would not have been right on Sri Krishna Ji’s part to say that I do not appear in form; I do not take birth from Durga’s (Prakriti) womb like Sri Krishna etc. Because Durga is Brahm’s wife. Because Kaal creates different forms (Mahabrahma, Mahavishnu and Mahashiv etc) by power of word. And then abandons that body at a fixed time. He has this type of birth and death.

Therefore in Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verse 5, Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 12 and Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 Verse 2, has said that you and I have had many births; you do not know; I know. It is not that I and you and these soldiers were not there earlier or will not be there in the future. In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 Verse 2, has said that even gods do not know my origin (birth) because all of these have originated from me. It has been proved from the aforesaid evidences that even Brahm has an origin. Only the Purna Parmatma / the Supreme God tells that because Kaal (Brahm) has originated from an egg by power of word of Purna Brahm (SatPurush) KavirDev. This evidence is also in Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 14-15. Like, children do not know the origin of their father, only the grandfather (father of the father) can tell that. Here the indication is that Brahm is saying that even I have an origin, but even the gods (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiv), who have originated from me, do not know it.

Important: The meaning of (vyakt) ‘manifested’ is to be visibly seen i.e. to meet and see. The meaning of (avyakt) unmanifested is that there is an object but is invisible. Like, the clouds cover the sky and the sun becomes invisible, but is present beyond the clouds. Similsrly, all gods are present in a human-like visible body, but are beyond our vision. Therefore are known as unmanifested (avyakt). In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 26 to 28, God is stating that I (Brahm) am aware of the state of all the living beings (who are under my authority in my twenty-one brahmands) in the past-future and present that who will take birth in which life. But nobody can know me. The whole world is distressed by love, hatred and attachment and has become ignorant. Only those sinless living beings, whose love-hatred and attachment have dispelled, can do my bhajan, otherwise not.

Please Ponder: – Only a living being free from love-hatred, attachment and sins can remember God, others not. The meaning of sinless is that those whose doubts have dispelled, that compared to the pooja of gods-goddesses and Brahma, Vishnu, Shiv and Mother Durga, Brahm’s sadhna is superior. Then that sadhak sincerely (free from sin) worships the God. The living beings in the three loks and the twenty-one brahmands (Kaal-lok) can never become free from these defects/vices. Then how can an ordinary bhakt become free from sin or action? Even God Vishnu could not avoid love-hatred, attachment etc; neither do brahmaji, nor Shiv Ji. Then what hope does an ordinary man have?

Who Escapes From Kaal’s Trap? – Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7

The meaning of Bhagavad Gita Summary Chapter 7 Verse 29 is that those who come to know me that I am Kaal and that even my worship (pooja) is very bad, by Tattavgyan, and who know the entire Adhyatm and the entire action, they by being dependent on that Supreme God, try to get rid of miserable old age and death i.e. strive to get completely liberated from birth-death. In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 30, has said that a sadhak who knows me and all the Adhidev-Adhibhoot etc along with the three taaps (the sufferings which are inflicted on the living being by Kaal) and who after knowing the (Adhiyagya) Purna Brahm situated in the yagyas and understanding the difference between both of us i.e. after knowing me from tattav (ina true way) that I am Kaal and that the Supreme God alone is the giver of complete peace and is the giver of complete salvation, then at the time of death, keeps his mind concentrated in the bhajan of the Complete God, he escapes from the trap of Kaal because of the fear of the sufferings inflicted by Kaal. Like, we do jaap of Satnaam, in that there is also Kaal’s (Brahm’s) jaap ‘Om’; whose jaap we do with this thought that Oh SatPurush, please save us from the miseries of this Kaal (Brahm); we shall become free from his debt so that we get rid of this Kaal (Jyoti Niranjan) forever and keep our mind concentrated in the Supreme God’s bhajan and His attainment. If one forgets the sufferings of Kaal (Jyoti Niranjan), then a living being can become lazy in doing bhajan. Therefore after knowing Kaal (Jyoti Niranjan) and the pain (sufferings) inflicted by him on the living beings and (anuttamam gatim) the very bad salvation which has been stated in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 18, a living being by being dependent on that Supreme God keeps his mind firmly concentrated in the bhakti of that same Supreme God with undivided attention i.e. does not get deviated.

Purna Brahm God who is situated (Adhiyagya) in the yagyas. There is a full description in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 14, 15.

Doubt: A doubt will arise in the minds of the God-loving readers that when Brahm (Kaal) is calling his sadhna also as (anuttamam’) very bad (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 18), then why is he suggesting to do his sadhna (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 12 to 15) and why has he called those who do bhakti of the three gunas (Rajgun-Brahma, Satgun-Vishnu, Tamgun-Shiv) as bad?

Resolution of Doubt: A scripture-based bhakti begins with the method (remembering ‘Om’ naam by chanting and by doing five yagyas; dharm/meritorious acts, dhyaan/concentration, pranaam/bow, hawan/lighting lamp and gyaan/knowledge) mentioned in Holy Vedas and Holy Gita Ji. From that one attains the happiness of salvation in the greatheaven in Brahmlok for duration of one Mahakalp, but based on the punishment for sinful actions has to bear hardships in hell and then in the bodies of 84 lakh species of living beings. Then will receive one human body. When those souls are in human body and some Tattavdarshi Saint delivers them the knowledge of the Purna Parmatma (SatPurush), then they soon get engaged in that sadhna, because

They have previous impressions of bhakti present in them and by doing true sadhna, they attain complete liberation. {This evidence is also in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 8 Verse 5, 6} with pooja of other gods, the duration of liberation/salvation is very short and that of hell is long , and the sufferings of the 84 lakh births are also for longer duration. Like, there are 20 consecutive births of one life form (dog), then because of also having more births of any other life form, one experiences more sufferings. But those who worship Brahm (Kaal) according to the convention, have fewer births as a result of the sanskars of every birth and even the births of the 84 lakh life forms are experienced quickly. Like, a dog dies in 10 years, one dies just after coming out of its mother’s womb. Like, Rishi Sukhdev Ji’s soul was in the egg of a female parrot; he got relieved when the egg got spoilt; otherwise, the age of a parrot is more than that of a human being.

Whenever the worshippers of the other gods attain a human body, they according to the impressions of their previous nature, worship the same three gunas (Rajgun-Brahma, Satgun-Vishnu, Tamgun-Shiv) and bhoot-bhairvon, and pitras; they do not listen even when told. Evidence is in Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 16 Verse 4 to 20 and Holy Bhagavad Gita Chapter 17 Verse 1 to 10. Two types of those devotees have been described who used to perform scripture-based sadhna in the previous births; one are Brahm worshippers who used to chant ‘Om’ mantra and do the five yagyas. They go to Mahaswarg/ great heaven and experience hardships in hell and the lives of other life forms. They can also have more than one consecutive human births. If in all those human births also they do not find a Tattavdarshi Saint, then they have to go through all the above-mentioned states. But they quickly engage in true sadhna. The second type of devotees who perform scripture-based sadhna are those who in some yug (age) used to do sadhna of the Purna Parmatma after attaining sadhna from a Complete Saint (Tattavdarshi Saint). But they could not get liberated. Those devotees go to the lok of Satguru Kabir Sahib built in one brahmand, where the bhakti earnings of those devotees do not finish because the meal provided by the Supreme Father is free. No other person can go there.

Then the Supreme God again grants human life to those devotees at the time when a saint, who tells about the complete sadhna, has to arrive. At that time those devotees soon develop faith in the speech (discourses) of that Complete (Purna) Saint, who tells about the true sadhna, and start doing bhakti. Out of them some of the souls, considering the fake saints, who deliver similar knowledge of the fake Satlok, as (purna) complete saints, become based on them only and becoming the frog of the well keep listening to only that knowledge. They regret on hearing the true knowledge. In this way, those previous scripture-based sadhaks also remain in Kaal’s trap. If they carefully listen and read the Tattavgyan, then soon seek refuge of the Complete Saint (Tattavdarshi Saint).

Those who do not come in the refuge of the Complete Saint, they based on their previous earnings of true bhakti keep acquiring numerous human births and because of the absence of a Complete Saint get entrapped in the cycle of the lives of 84 lakh life forms and hell-heaven. Its evidence is also in Holy Yajurved Chapter 40 Mantra 1 to 4.
