The root of meditation is the Guru’s form.
The root of worship is the Guru’s feet.

Owing to ignorance, the Universal Mother resides in the body as secret knowledge. She is revealed by Her own light through the words of the Guru.

GURU GITA ( CONVERSATION BETWEEN LORD SHIVA AND MATA PARAVATI

10481748_10153241783788731_5366781573153248115_n

The Guru Gita (Song of the Guru) is a Hindu scripture that is said to have been authored by the sage, Vyasa. The verses of this scripture may also be chanted. The text is believed to be part of the larger Skanda Purana. There are several versions of the Guru Gita, varying from around 100 to over 400 verses.

In the Siddha Yoga tradition, the Guru Gita is considered to be an “indispensable text”.[1] Swami Muktananda chose 182 verses to create a unique version of the Guru Gita, which has its own melody for chanting. [2]

The text of the Guru Gita describes a conversation between the Hindu God, Lord Shiva and his wife, the Hindu Goddess Parvati, in which she asks him to teach her about the Guru and liberation. Shiva answers her by describing the Guru principle, the proper ways of worshiping the Guru and the methods and benefits of repeating the Guru Gita.[3][4] The text also gives the etymology of the word Guru, where the root gu stands for darkness, while the root rustands for light. The term Guru is therefore explained as the remover of darkness, who reveals the light of the heart.

Can I write a commentary on Bhagavad Gita??

What are the qualifications to write a commentary on Bhagavad Gita
a. Age
b.Knowledge of Vedas, Upanishad’s & other important Sastra’s
c.Reading and understanding of Commentaries by Saints
d.Reading and understanding of Commentaries by people other than saints.
e.Knowledge of Sanskrit / Other languages in which original version is written / commentary is written.

I feel that none of the above will make one qualified.

In the context of Bhagavad Gita
1.The person who is speaking or writing it (Lord Krishna)
2.The quality with which the person in speaking (Do the commentators know this?)
3.The person who is listening it (Arjuna)
4.The quality with which the person is listening/questioning it (Do the commentators know this?)
5.The words (Sure..The commentators know this but after all these years but there is a very remote probability that the words have changed during the course of time)
6.The context in which it is spoken (Do the commentators know this?)
To me, of the 6 points mentioned above, most of the writers go with 3 or at the maximum 4. Sorry 60% is no way near 100%.

Either you know it fully or you don’t.

Mostly it is a ego trip for the person who writes a commentary for Bhagavad Gita. He can claim “I have written a commentary”. That is all..

My view:
Already there are thousands and thousands of commentaries about Bhagavad Gita.

Even the commentaries written by Saints like Ramanuja, Madhavacharya and Shankaracharya have subtle differences. Saints are Saints, they do at the will of the GOD. If you are a Saint, please write.

If one does not know all the 6 mentioned above, please DO NOT write a commentary.

Though I have taken this for Bhagavad Gita, it applies for ALL commentaries on religious books/sayings.
