हे भारत! जब-जब धर्म की हानि और अधर्म की वृद्धि होती है, तब-तब ही मैं अपने रूप को रचता हूँ अर्थात साकार रूप से लोगों के सम्मुख प्रकट होता हूँ॥7॥
Whenever there is a decline in righteousness, and a rise in unrighteousness prevails, then do I manifest myself, O Bhaarata.
Shri Krishna described the process of Ishvara’s descent or avataara in the previous shloka. Here he speaks about the reason for manifesting as an avataara. He says that whenever there is a decay in dharma, and a rise in adharma, during that time he manifests himself in a particular form in this world. Now dharma means righteousness, but it also means universal harmony. Adharma then becomes disharmony.
Again, let us take the example of our body. Every cell and organ is working for the totality of the human being. It is the spirit of “one for all and all for one”, which is nothing but the spirit of yajna that we saw earlier. Our heart keeps beating and doesn’t ask for any reward or recognition. It just works for the sake of totality.
But sometimes, a part of the body, or the whole body, undergoes a situation when something goes wrong. Then, the intelligence of the body manifests itself to take care of the situation. If the problem is in one part of the body then special enzymes are secreted to remedy the situation, and white blood cells fight off the invaders. If the problem is in the whole body then it becomes warm under fever in order to get rid of intruders.
Similarly Ishvara comes either for short time like the Narasimha avataara, or for a long time like Shri Krishna ava uptaar. Sometimes we find that the entire population thinks the same thought – e.g. an independence struggle or a social movement. That is also an avataara. If we go on polluting the environment with chemicals and so on, there could be a natural disaster in response. That is also an avataara .
One can cheat one’s friends, one’s relatives, one’s community, one’s nation and one can cheat one self but one cannot cheat God.
The Bible says, “be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Epistle to the Galatians 6.7).
Law of Karma
The law of karma ensures that one will have to pay for the wrongdoing to one self and/or others. This system also ensures that everyone is responsible for their own actions.
Karma is summarised in the Bhagavd Gita (4.17), as “karma (action), vikarma (forbidden action) and akarma (inaction)” and also as the “art of all work – karmasu kausalam” (BG 2.50) is to work for the Supreme Lord.
The Law of Karma states that “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” (Newton’s third law of motion)
How Karma Works?
Karma is a Sanskrit word that means ‘action’ or, more specifically, any material action that brings a reaction binding one to the material world. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, either in this life or in the future live(s).
Basically, good actions (piety) bring good results and bad actions (impiety) bring bad results. To enjoy the results of pious actions one may be promoted to heavenly planets and to suffer from impious actions one may be put into hellish planets.
Different Stages of Karmic Reactions
The Padma Purana that “there are different stages of dormant reactions to sinful activities to be observed in a sinful life. Sinful reactions may be just waiting to take effect [phalonmukha], reactions may be still further dormant [kuta], or the reactions may be in a seedlike state [bija]…”
How to Stop Karmic Reactions?
The Padma Purana state that “all types of sinful reactions are vanquished one after another if a person engages in the devotional service of Lord Visnu.” Lord Krishna, while concluding the Bhagavad Gita, states :
Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear. (BG 18.66)
There are a few simple things that we can actually do, especially for a cleaner country. it won’t even take much effort:
1.Always carry a small poly-bag
A recycled paper bag would be just great. Use it to throw in little pieces of trash. ALWAYS.
We all know that there is a dearth of dustbins in our city. Let’s stop blaming and start doing.
So always carry your own trash bag to keep country clean
2.Segregate waste at home in 3 separate bins
Biodegradable, Recyclable and Others. Yes this has been told to us time and again, and we do start, but it fizzles out soon (much like our new year resolutions.) If you are living in a society, you could talk to the management and get this system of segregation implemented there.
So segregate trash to keep country clean
3. Re-use old bottles
You can do a lot of creative things with old plastic bottles instead of throwing them away. We saw some cool ideas on bored panda.
Thus recycle plastic to keep country clean
4. Compost pit
Its cheap, its useful, and your best friend if you have a green thumb.You can collect and separate out your food scraps before you head for the garbage. Find a compost collection site in your area and take your scraps there weekly or just utilize it for your plants.
Now compost pit to keep country clean
5.Join a Community Cleanliness Drive
Trust us, it is much easier to do something when there are others doing it with you. You can join community cleanliness drives (insert link/ research more)
Carryout a community cleanliness drive to keep country clean
6. Use Fabric Bags
Instead of getting things from your vegetable vendor in a zillion tiny polythene bags, carry your own fabric bag when you go shopping. You have got to admit, a fabric bag has a charm of its own.
Always use fabric bag to keep country clean
7.Live Clean Yourself
Keep your house tidy, get it cleaned regularly, declutter, live healthy, live clean. Try using all those cleaning hacks that you read online. Read more hacks has some really nice ones.
Well these are some tips you can follow easily. Hope that you practice at least some of these. In all honesty, hope that we all follow them as well.
No matter how much someone teaches you, no matter how many times u get success, it will always be failure guiding you to what is left for you to conquer. Success is just the authentication of you being on the right track but failure is the one who keeps you on it.
Otherer factors of faith, willingness and persistence plays a major role in taking up failures positively but at the end If you aren’t failing you aren’t learning something new.
Ravana is depicted as the king of Rakshasas. He is said to have ten heads. But not many people know that he was not born with ten heads. Let’s unravel the mystery…
Ravana performed an intense penance – tapasya – to Brahma, lasting several years. During his penance, Ravana chopped off his head 10 times as a sacrifice to appease Brahma. Each time he sliced his head off, a new head arose, thus enabling him to continue his penance. At last, Brahma, pleased with his austerity, appeared after Ravana’s 10th decapitation and offered him a boon. Ravana asked for immortality, which Brahma refused of course, but gave him the celestial nectar of immortality, which we all know was stored under his navel.
Ravana’s 10 heads symbolise the six Shastras and four Vedas, making him a great scholar and the most intelligent person of his time.
Ravana was a master in astrology, it is said that he broke one of Saturn’s arms, when Sani deva refused to be in a perfect position which would have made Meghnad immortal.
While Ravana was dying, Lakhsmana ran towards him so that he can learn the knowledge of diplomacy, since nobody in this planet had better knowledge and experience of administrative diplomacy over Ravana. His 10 heads represented a mammoth pool of knowledge and experience as a ruler, king and as a Brahman.
From another perspective, the 10 heads signify the 10 negative forms of love.

गरिमामयीयी इतिहास को साजिश के तहत भूल न जाना,
भगत सिंह के बलिदान को व्यर्थ न जाने देना💐
👉गाँधी,नेहरू सभी वकील फिर भगत सिंह का केस किसने लड़ा?
It was unheard and unthinkable that a nation can be free from clutches of British Empire without bleeding a drop of blood. Revolutions, freedom movements and struggles were always bloody wars in histories of the world!
