It is unlikely that the Brihadaranyaka verse is the forerunner of the Bhagavad Gita verse. The Bhagavad Gita verse refers to Krishna as Brahman, supporting everything. But the upanishad verse refers to vAyu. In the subsequent verses (3.7.7), the upanishad mentions that vAyu is controlled by the Internal Ruler (antaryAmi). This antaryAmi is Brahman. Verse ...

Answers to such questions can be received only through Sannyasa/renunciation. Similar question was asked to Yagyavalkya by his wife Maitri, before he was taking Sannyasa. Brihadaranyaka Upanishad: Section IV - Yajnavalkya and Maitreyi (I) ‘Maitreyī, my dear,’ said Yājñavalkya, ‘I am going to renounce this life.’ Allow me to finish between you and ...

Irrespective of the knowledge that one possesses, respect that one commands, kindness one shows towards one's fellow beings, death is inevitable (B.G.2.27). It is quite waste of time in trying to understand/fathom the Natural Laws set by the Almighty. Understanding the origin of this world, the life and Death, etc, come under this category. Seers of Vedic ...

I have found slokas in Valmiki Ramayana that convey similar meaning but not exact words, indicating better to perform one’s natural prescribed duty, though tinged with faults, than to perform another’s prescribed duty, as told by Sri Krishna in BG. In Yuddha Kanda, Vibhishana takes Lakshmana to the place where indrajit is performing the sacrificial rite. ...

I read Sage Agastya summoned it to gift it back to Sri Rama. With this splendid bow, ravana was won over. https://www.valmikiramayan.net/utf8/aranya/sarga12/aranya_12_frame.htm

The sub-questions of the question are: So , it is Parbrahman who's actually saying this ? Now Mahabharata (incl BG) was written by Krishna Dwaipayan (Ved vyasa) , so why we attribute BG to Sri Krishna when he's just being messenger of god ? As far as 1st sub-question is concerned, I had already answered it under another question stating that ...

The concept that messenger of God is separate from God and creator lives in some imaginary heavens and is separate from the creation has become popular because of widespread Abrahamic religions spread out among majority of population of Kaliyuga(age of ignorance) where the concept of soul and its linked law of Karma, reincarnation are rejected rather matter ...

According to Padma Purana, after the departure of Sita in the Earth, Sri Rama ruled the Kingdom for 11,000 years. After Sita’s disappearance, Shri Rama ruled for eleven thousand years. So if we add up the number years he spent on Earth, before the departure of Sita, we will get his life span. By the time he reached Chitrakuta, at the commencement of 14 ...

Krishna was born in the clan of Maharaj Yadu who was a chandravanshi kshtariya. The name 'Yadav' literally means the offsprings of Yadu (just like 'Manav' means the descendants of vaivshtava manu). Yadav kshtariyas were later rulers of western India namely Gujarat and parts of Maratha confederacy. Great Vijay Nagar empire of South India was also established ...

This is going to be a long answer, so I request you to bear with me. In the comments section, I asked the OP, what exactly he/she would consider as disproving the statement that "Krishna is not the brahman in the Bhagavad Gita but is merely a medium". At the time of writing this answer, I did not receive any response from the OP on this matter. So, I do not ...

Bhagwat Geeta said by Krishna himsef. And Krishna is no differ than Parbrahma. In other word, Krishna is Parbrahma. And it's proof we can find in Bhagwat Geeta easily. In Geeta When Krishna says I am Parbrahma, then some may say (coz of partial knowledge) It is not Krishna who is saying I am Parbrahma, BUT instead Parbrahma himself saying by making Krishna ...

Manusmṛti has a similar verse although I'm not sure if this was borrowed from the Gītā or vice versa. varaṃ svadharmo viguṇo na pārakyaḥ svanuṣṭhitaḥ | paradharmeṇa jīvan hi sadyaḥ patati jātitaḥ || 10.97 || Better one’s own duty imperfectly performed, and not the duty of another performed perfectly; he who subsists by the function of another,...
