    Hello Shreemathi,
    thanks a lot for your kind comments. We need not have to do anything. But give everything to him. He'll take care of us. After all who else is there for Us other than Him?
    thanks for coming in,
    sridhar

    Dear Malar,
    I missed you very much. You suddenly vanished from the scene. Welcome back. Hope everybody's fine at your place.

    Thanks for the nice words.

    But I am happy being a courier boy to my Teacher and to you, my friends, daughters and nieces.

    Please do read the serial and let me know what do you think.

    As some of the characters in the serial are in real life too I have given a print out for them to read. Dr.Sundar is very ecstatic.
    He took the book with him when he had to fly to Chennai urgently and read 100 pages in one go. He is thrilled by the book and his character.
    waiting for your comments,
    sridhar uncle

    Nice and apt analogy, Sridhar.
    He shows us different ways, which would suit each and individual according to their own gunas, but still we get drifted along in the course and still He shows simpliest ways to reach Him.
    Sure He is the Jagadhguru.

    Dear Sridhar Sir, read your blog after a long time. And as always, I am struck by its simpleness which is your natural way to convey a deep message.

    I am so moved, Sir.

    Regards

    Varalottiji,

    Thanks a million for quoting this stanza and explaining it with these words. What greater comfort can there for people like me, who do not know or perform any poojas and whose only relationship with God is the same as that with my parents, siblings and friends - chat, demand, insist, sulk, argue, joke, thank with a hug, sit helplessly in times of trouble leaving all my troubles to Him to resolve or a simple companionable silence taking comfort in his presence in and around me? I don't have to worry that I will be damned to hell for all eternity for not having done a ritual in the prescribed manner. Instead I can take comfort in the knowledge that I will be welcomed Home when it is time to return.

    Thanks a million once again. Made my morning for me.

    I strongly believe that He is the way. So His showing the various ways in Gita, the karma yoga, gnana yoga etc. is only to distract us. He is the goal. There is and can't be any goal other than Him. Similarly He is the way.
    thanks for coming in, Sis.

    Dear Kalyani,
    Nice to see you here after a long time. I am happy you liked this blog. For me this is the only sloka worth pondering upon in Gita. Others are also beautiful. But enough we keep thinking about this one.

    regards,
    sridhar
