Some persons are constantly trying to make me Christian.
I respect their proposal and concern for me.
Nevertheless, Sorry, I don’t submit.
It’s not that I hate Christianity.
No. I don’t hate any religion, neither Christianity, nor any one else.
I don’t hate Atheism either.
These all ideologies have their own place and as such, their own importance.
It’s up to a person HIMSELF to decide which ideology, out of them, is better for him/her and for the entire humanity, too.
I’m entitled and authorized to it.
The question is: How to react when some unwanted wicked strikes you?
I do agree, our first approach should be:
‘Bahuri vandi khaljan satibhaayen,Je binu kaaj daahine baayen.’
‘I pay multifold respect to the unwanted wicked who are, without any reason, disturb me, every now and then.’
–Shri Ramcharit Manas: 1 Balkand: 3|1
Till this point, there’s no difference of opinion.
The difference arises hereafter.
The wicked, thinks, it is a weakness of their adversary and he strikes.
What should one do?
‘Turn your other cheek to him.’
‘Ye yathaa maam prapadyante taanstathaiv bhajaamyaham‘
‘I treat them as they approach me.’
Shrimadbhagvad Geeta is a worldwide appreciated scripture now.
Not only the Hindus, even a large number of Non-Hindus do also appreciate it.
On the other hand, Lord Jesus Christ proposed:
‘Turn your other cheek to the wicked.’
What happened to him?
He led a life full of miseries and ultimately GOT CRUCIFIED.
What’s wrong there, if I don’t want to get crucified?
What’s wrong there, if I don’t want to lead a life full of miseries?
What’s wrong there if I want to meet my wicked adversaries in the same way, they want to meet me?
I’m not asking you to do the same.
You are absolutely free to follow any policy you want to.
You are allowed to be a Christian if you want to.
You are allowed to lead a life full of miseries if you want to.
You are allowed to get crucified if you want to.
I don’t want any nonsense of it.
So, I’m vowed to follow Lord Kr’shn‘.
I’m vowed to practice Hinduism.
Please don’t disturb me any more, if you don’t want to be disturbed yourself.
Best of luck, Christians!
I sympathize with you in the same way you sympathize with me.
We have chosen different kind of life system to practice.
Naturally the result we’d achieve will also be different.
They tell me, leading a life full of miseries is spirituality.
What do they mean?
Lord Kr’shn did not lead a spiritual life?
They tell me, getting crucified is actually being spiritual.
What do they mean?
Lord Kr’shn were not spiritual?
That’s not our path.
Our path is that of Karm, not that of a belief that have a faith on someone who let him crucified for the sins of the persons who have a faith on him.
‘I treat them exactly as they approach me.
The people follow my path, Paarth! without any exception.’
–Shrimad Bhagvad Geeta: 4/11.
‘without any exception.”sarvashah’ means,
according to Lord Kr’shn, it’s human nature.
There’s no exception to it.
We ourselves know, by our own experiences,
that Lord Kr’shn is absolutely right.
Actually, he hasn’t enunciated any new principle here, to Arjun.
He has only reiterated, in his own words, this very Ved Mantr:
vidushte tasy’ medhiraasteshaam
‘By stratagems, O controller of organs! thou cut in pieces the deceiver exsiccator.
The intellectuals know thy this.
Bestow food upon them.’
–Ved:1 R’gved: 1/11/7.
