    Dear Chith,
    Wonderful explanations! Through this post, I learned two things:
    1. Not to advice anyone unless asked for. Usually, if something happens to any of my friends/relatives, I used to think I should have advised her/him then . Now I think being silent that time was gold coz the advice wasn't asked for.
    Secondly, I learnt that attachment and expectation are in the same bundle. That's true. I expect more from people with whom I am more attached.

    Thanks, Chith for making my mind clear:-D .

    Dear Bhargavi,
    Thankyou for the f b.
    Love & attachment & not love & affection. It is attachment that makes us dependant on the person concerned ! That is called samsara here.
    Panchakosas post is becoming longer in my attempt to explain clearly ! I am getting a little anxious !
    Love,
    Chith.

    Dear Nivedi,
    It is very emotional to read your F B.
    How you felt initially is very much justified, being brought up in a traditional Indian way, not being allowed to question others even if we know we are on the right.
    So long as we know that we are not hiding anything, we are not being disrespectful, we have no idea of cheating anybody, we are doing things only with the rightful intention, we have to gather courage ( I would also think in mind Krishnarpanamasthu about my plans as to how to go ahead) & proceed.
    The opposite party's reaction of shock & resentment is only to be expected !
    Thanks for joining us here.
    Love,
    Chithu.

    Dear Sindhuja,
    Thanks for your feedback.
    This post seems to have set many thinking ! That is the power of Gita !
    Attachment creates sorrow ultimately, but it is not easy to get over the same also. It is a gradual process which has to set in over the years.
    I also feel(personally) that to love is more noble than to be loved !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Mrs. C,

    From reading the previous posts came to know more about what is being said in Gita... about how attachment brings sorrow. And that you should not give
    advise to anyone unless they ask for it. I think we forget that sometimes especially to the ones we are dear to. Thank u for all ur explanations here.

    Madhu

    Dear Madhu,
    Thankyou for the F B.
    Thugh we are fully correct in wanting to put it in effect, let us warn ourselves & remember, it is easy to plan than practise in real life ! Gita has to fully seep in our thought process !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Theju,
    Thanks for your F B.
    Every human being goes through Arjuna disease at some stage or other in life - that is why Krishna gave us the Gita, the remedy !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chithra,
    I had read this post of yours 2 days or so after your submission but could not give a fb immediately.By the no. of fbs that have poured in , I can understand that a lot of Ilites are into spirituality even at a young age and I am sure as you explanation of the Gita advance chapter by chapter, there will be more and more fbs, such that you will find it difficult to handle! I am sure Lord Krishna will be there by your side to keep you going deeper and deeper into the Ocean that is Gita to bring out the pearls.

    Thanks Mrs. Chith for pointing out that love and attachment and not love and affection. It is just the 'slip of my fingers' i guess. i typed that, having one in mind and typing, the other.:-(
