By those twain snares of Like and Dislike, Prince! By action Janaka and others attained perfection. It is significant and interesting that the word Pa�chajana itself means �five classes,� having reference to the five lower classes of beings which in a general way were considered by the ancient Hind�s to inhabit the universe. The important books and writings of Hinduism namely the sacred Bhagavad-Gita, the Vedas and the Upanishads play a very pivotal role in the history of mankind!

Looking to the fourth discourse of the Gita which deals with Jnana-Yoga, we see how appropriately it comes after the first three discourses. The beautiful language and the poetry of the Ramayana would suffice to make it a favorite of the Indians; as well as this, they also admire Rama's obedience towards his father, his generosity towards Kaikeyi, Sita's fidelity in following Rama into the jungle and during her captivity. Caste system undermined by egalitarian character of Buddhism; Buddhism emphasized the idea of karma (destiny determined by one's actions), the extinguishing of passion/desire, peaceful coexistence with all living things, and enlightenment The Bhagavad Gita was crafted by members of the Brahmin caste in an effort to counteract the rising influence of Buddhism; new concepts: karma yoga ("discipline of action"), dutiful, disciplined action without personal desire, sacred duty; bhakti yoga ("discipline of devotion") Leaning in the direction of Buddhism and the voice of Arjuna (pacifism, the sanctity of all life), Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) interpreted the Bhagavad Gita as supporting the doctrine of non-violent resistance

Each and every one of us has adversities in many ways. So, at the first rung of the ladder, you have the performance of Karma; Karma in thought, word and deed. Balarama, who until now believed that the Gopas were the incarnations of the gods and the cows of the Rishis, could not account for this sudden increase in the love of both human and bovine parents for their off-spring evolved from Bhagavan's Maya. The third stage is called the stage of Smaranam, brooding, when the mind always loves to dwell upon Bhagavan; and then comes the fourth stage Padasevana, when his love grows deeper, and not satisfied with merely brooding on the Lord he seeks to feel his solidarity with him and clings to His blessed feet from which flow peace and bliss.

Now, every system of philosophy postulates the existence of a First Cause, and though there is differences of opinion as to the nature of this First Cause or its attributes, it is agreed on all hands that this First Cause (Parambrahma) is omnipresent and eternal; is not Gnatha (ego), not Gnanam (consciousnness), not Gneyam (non-ego). Yet the Vedas go further, being philosophy, or really spiritual sciences, rather than myth.
