“Arjuna, you grieve over those who should not be grieved for any yet speak like the learned; wise men do not sorrow over the dead or the living.” – #BhagavadGita Shlok – (Chapter-2, Verse-11)

November 1, Tuesday


Meaning of the #Shlok


On listening to Arjuna’s scripture-based, logical arguments, in this shloka Krishna is telling Arjuna that firstly, you are grieving for the wrong people and to top it you are speaking like a pandit, meaning like a wise man! Now, how can both these things go hand in hand? Actually, day in and out, we too do the same thing as Arjuna; our words are undoubtedly laced with foolishness, but we garnish them with the logic of the intelligent! But can logic ever prove someone to be wise? And occasionally even if it does, what purpose does that serve? In the end, brainless / foolish actions always bring about unfavourable results.
So, Krishna is saying, whether you are worried about your death or of the Kauravas or whosoever’s, in essence that fear itself is wrong. Because “that which comes – it shall go” is the absolute, simple truth! And wise men never grieve over the Eternal Truth, neither do they make their foolish talks don the garb of intelligence. – Deep Trivedi
