Lord Krishna is the one of the most loved Gods of the Hindu religion. His teachings on various aspects of human life to Arjuna during the epic battle of Mahabharata are world famous and widely accepted and followed. So famous and acceptable was his teachings that it soon took from of a Holy book which is famously known as the Bhagwad Gita which means divine songs of Lord. So much practical and relevant was His teachings that even in the present day, those are sternly followed as well preached by renowned Gurus or saints. Thus the Book forms as Holy guide for the Hindu souls. Enlisted below are few of his teachings which are till date followed whole-heartedly and sternly.
According to the teachings of Lord Krishna there are four kinds of actions or karma that a human can perform, which are Kamya Karma (actions performed for selfish gains), Nishiddha Karma (actions that are forbidden in holy texts and scriptures), Nitya Karma (actions that must be performed daily) and finally Naimittika Karma (actions that must be performed on certain special occasions). Lord Krishna clearly prohibited his devotees to perform the first two kinds of Karmas as they lead to rebirth and laid stress on the performance of the latter two as they help in getting Moksha or Nirvana or salvation.
According to this teaching of Lord Krishna, he emphasised on being free from all kinds of negative and positive emotions like that of joy, grief, sorrow, happiness, jealousy for they are considered to be illusions or maya. These emotions are transient thus bound to fade away. All the beings are thus bonded but one can set oneself free and achieve liberation once they realize that the world is nothing but an illusion. All the souls taking birth on the Earth must thus surrender to Lord, be free from attachments to living and non-living objects. One should not become conditioned by body or any other worldly things around.Withdrawal from Sense-Objects:
Another famous teaching of Lord Krishna is to withdraw oneself from all the sensory- objects for in a way one can avoid delusion. For according to him, all the objects of desire ultimately lead one towards the path of misery. Thus he advises his followers to put a control over their senses and should not run after the pursuit of desires for that will surely give rise to their downfall, for as soon as one of the desires is accomplished another desire is sure to evolve, thus creating a vicious circle. So it is quite advisable by the teaching of the Lord to give up ahmkara or Ego and identify only with God.
Satsanga means being in the company of Sadhus or the knowledgeable one, if one is in the company of such persons one is sure to reduce as well put an end to attachment of all kinds. Thus according to the famous teachings of Lord Krishna, 'satsanga' is described as the fastest means to be closer to him and be sheltered in his company.
Lord Krishna describes Karma (action) Jnana (Knowledge) and Bhakti (Devotion) as the three fold way to attain the Lord and in return seek his blessings. Thus those abiding these rules, is sure to achieve happiness and Moksha. Being knowledgeable will help perform the right Karma and not worry about the fruit of the action. Devotion to God helps introspects and removes from the worldly desires. The three paths lead to removal of illusion or maya.
