Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12 - The Yoga of Devotion

Bhagavad Gita Summary : Knowing the supreme god, Arjuna wanted to know which is the best way to reach him and what kind of people are dearer to the supreme god. Krishna told Arjuna, the one who always worship me with faith and keep their mind in me is the most perfect, and the others who controls the senses and do welfare to others also reach me. Krishna told there are various ways of reaching him, by fixing the mind on Krishna and engaging all the intelligence on Krishna, the person lives within Krishna, however if that’s not possible, then involve in meditational practices to attain the supreme power, if that’s not possible, then should involve in devotional service, if that’s not possible, then give all your results of action to me and work, if that’s not possible, work on developing knowledge on me. 

"Our Life: At least In India we see, people worshiping god in numerous forms, from stone to animal to human to giant humans, etc. These forms are made to believe god is in every form and few of the practices are made to regularize the people’s engagement in devotional activities, like a month long festival, a month long prayer, etc. Basically they tend to change the nature of people by this consistent practice. Also the forms of gods are mostly family based like son, mother, etc. They help people understand how they need to live in their life and gods are more like super models (in family life). As we go to an ashram or Matt  we understand that people learn Veda’s and they perform rituals, etc ...In places like Himalayas we could see yogis, who has no desire and perform no action to live, who live mostly in mediation... People like us , who love to hear about god , what it is , why it is and try to argue few things, it’s nothing but we try to develop knowledge in that area (and some goes to religious meeting and prayers to learn on this).. Some people believe helping others and performing good things is the service to god... All of them are path to reach the supreme power, however at any point in time, if you think, by doing this you will definitely reach god; you already lost your path!!!
We see advertisement boards on donated products, we see names of people kept for charity trust, we see temples built on every street/community - it seems god should serve their street/community also, we see that rituals overtake underlying principles told in Gita, we see people go to religious meetings to develop contacts and feel proud to organize such meetings in their place and so on.... by doing all this, we already lost our path to reach him and again his illusions are hard to come by! (We are proving by doing all this)"

Bhagavad Gita Summary : Krishna told to Arjuna, the one who is not envious but friendly to all living beings, free from false ego, who is always satisfied, who is tolerant, who is self controlled, whose mind and intelligence is fixed on me, such a person is very dear to me. One who neither rejoices nor grieves, who waivers the auspicious and inauspicious things, who is  equipoise in honor and dishonor, fame and infamy, who is fixed in knowledge and who is engaged in devotional service, such a person is very dear to me. Those who follow devotional service path and who are completely engages themselves with faith and making me as supreme goal is very dear to me.

"Our Life: Can we be not envy about what happens with our friends and relatives like promotion, marriage, assets, etc? Sure we can... first thing we have to acknowledge and respect ourselves and our life, second thing we have to understand there is nothing more than the supreme personality of god , and all others have no value... So then why did I say, first you need to respect your self... it’s because the supreme personality of god lives in you, that’s why you need to first respect yourself.
Ego is a very important emotion for a human being, beyond a point it can make you like an animal. Ego basically comes from comparative nature of us, either to prove to someone or to society or group of people - that we are not inferior or to prove we are superior...People want to go on VIP lane in some places, if no permission is given, then their ego is triggered, people don’t want to follow certain rules, but when they are forced, their ego is triggered, people want to have last word in any discussion, if not, then ego is triggered and so on.... Basically the person who is not self aware and who can be taken by the situation for a ride, will undergo this for many times... False Ego, can create emotional imbalance, which means meaningless speech and activity to follow, and will take you in to trouble. Finally to resolve this, you have to either tell lie or imagine yourself that others has done very wrong things to you (may be more than what was the reality)... To overcome the False Ego, it’s very important to realize yourself, see god in others, believe in the actions of god and don’t attach you for fame and honor. Because when you are attached to something, false ego can be easily triggered. We are sure in most of the violence and relationship breaking; false ego is the main cause. By losing this characteristics, you will have better life (as your relatives/friends/known or anyone whom you interact will be also comfortable). Having said that, it doesn't mean being a fool or allow others to take you for a ride... Be firm when it’s right and it’s your duty, but never be egoistic!! "
