Chaitanya Charan · Can We Invest In Mutual Funds, Does That Involve Breaking The Regulative Principle Of No Gambling


Question: Can be invest in Mutual funds? Does that involve breaking the regulative principle of no gambling?

Answer: In today’s world, Where things are often newanswered complex. How do we translate these regulator principles into daily life is something which is not written in black and white. Rather than focusing on the What we should not do? We can focus more on What is the underlying purpose or the underlying principle? And the underline principle here is greed. Gambling is problematic primarily because It involves seeking some benefit without putting in any endeavor.

From that any significant proportionate endeavor we can say again I learnt gambling. I’m expert in gambling. But that’s not exactly proportional to the hard work by which one gets returns.

So, If we are not driven by the motive of greed if we have genuine financial concerns and we are trying to responsibly address those concerns and if we have the financial expertise in the maturity to invest thoughtfully wisely then the fear of the regulative principle itself need not be what stops us from going ahead.
Some of us may be innately risk-averse and if that started position then we don’t have to deliberately take risk going against our disposition but we also have to deal with our responsibility, so maybe you have to find out some other way to deal with our responsibility. So the key principle is that focus on ensuring that greed is not being nurtured and the boundary of what comprises the regular principle may be a little porous or blurred now is it that We will get some further bad karma by doing this and better to tolerate and live in financial difficulty. That’s one way to go.

At the same time we may have to look at ourselves, honestly and look at our family situation honestly and evaluate what is going to cause us greater agitation us and of course those whom we are responsible for. We may decide that I’ll just tolerate this as past karma and leave through it but while tolerating if you are constantly lamenting resenting venting. As sometimes exploring at others or sometimes just dreading privately then all that is itself a significant distraction from Krishna for us. So, for it’s not that tolerating past karma tolerating our present challenge difficulties, as we have exhausting our past karma is a primary priority. Our primary priorities to serve Krishna to focus on Krishna and do our various responsibilities in the mood of service to Krishna. So if We find that this service is being impeded the remembrance is being impeded so by what is being impeded more.

By moving forward and taking over responsibility or by not taking up the responsibility. And tolerating but resenting so thereby that we can decide
Anukulasya sankalpa pratikulasya varjanam – what is favorable accepted, what is unfavorable avoided.

It is not that because this world is the dukhalaya, […]

Chaitanya Charan · What Are The Consequences Of Not Following Bhagavad – Gita


Question: What are the consequences of not following the Bhagavad Gita?

Overall.The Bhagavad-gita is more is not one-off.

Ensuring compliance through imposing fear.So,

Idea inducing fear rather.So rather than focusing on.What will happen if somebody doesn’t follow the vagita? What these is is that there are laws of nature.Science talks about laws of nature.And if somebody doesn’t follow the law of gravity. Sometimes you defy the law of gravity.Then it is not that Newton or anybody any physics teacher is going to cause the injury to the person who jumps off from 10 story building.

That I don’t believe in our care for gravity.So,

It is not so much as fear of physics or thread by physicists.Or threads by a physics textbook as it is just awareness of the way reality works.Similarly the good guitar is giving us awareness.Of not just physical reality what primarily of conscious reality of have on how consciousness is affected by.

Our choices.And ultimately each one of us.The one thing we have to live with the most is our own consciousness.

We may or may not.You may create a particular place and we can walk away from that place.And somebody else has to clean up our mess.But if we create a mess in our consciousness that mess walks with us.We can never walk away from it.

And the guitar simply reminds us that.The more we let our consciousness become attached to small things.To trivial concerns to petips.To.Minor mishaps.Or even on the opposite side to.To trifling pleasures.To chief comforts.To.

Oh, you universally available sensual pleasures.Then by that we shrink our consciousness.And a shrunk consciousness.Can only experience shank and realities.For example a self-centered person.Can only experience life in terms of oneself only and nothing beyond that.

A self-centered person can’t see beauty of the top of her mountain.Without thinking that only if I would conquer and plant my victory flag over there, then it would be glorious otherwise it just makes me feel insignificant and that’s affiliate. I don’t want So shankan consciousness means our source is of fulfillment of joy of pleasure they become limited they become shrunk.

And expanded consciousness means that our sources of meaning are sources of fulfillment.Our sources of.

Joy they become expanded.So,The whole.Gita while talking about various paths.

In the talking about.The path of consciousness.How we can enrich our consciousness.So if we do not follow the kita basically, that means we are not enriching our consciousness.And.By letting the consciousness we filled with complaints and temptations, for example.We deprive ourselves of the.Higher experiences that we could otherwise have had.

But when 1858 one of the several hours of the Krishna talks about choices and consequences.Much it does have.

He says if you become conscious of me, you will pass over all obstacles by my grace.However, act out of go define me.

Then you will be lost. Since this is not so much Krishna personally having a vendetta against those who don’t listen to me, it’s rather.The very nature of nature of consciousness.That if it is.

Neglected if […]
