The idea of duty is different for different people, different countries, different cultures, and different religions. Hence the term ‘duty’ is impossible to clearly define. We have always been trained by society to consider certain acts as duty; some as good and others as bad. Duty and responsibility are totally different.
For example, it is our duty to help elderly people, to follow principles of truth, non-violence, non-stealing and such tenets. We are brought up with these concepts of morality, but have we experienced the beauty of implementing them?
When you actually take responsibility, Indra enters your hand; it becomes vajrāyudha. Yama enters your lungs; it means ‘not-stopping’. Lakṣhmi enters your heart; it means ‘continuously sharing’.
Then there are certain principles that get handed down depending on the religion we follow. For example, a starving person who finds a piece of meat has no problem eating it if he is a non-vegetarian. On the other hand, a vegetarian would feel it is his duty not to touch meat even if it means losing his life. These are all socially defined duties. Never judge the customs of other people by your standards. There is no common standard for the Universe.

In these verses, Kṛṣṇa beautifully explains what walking the talk means through His own example. He says there is nothing in the three worlds the nether world, earth or heaven, for Him to achieve. There is no duty that binds Him. Even though He has nothing to gain, lose or even to do, He is constantly engaged in action and enriching the three worlds. Why?
After Enlightenment, I came from the Himalayas to be amidst the people to enrich them with Enlightenment. I could have just stayed there happily and blissfully. But I have come here because of my responsibility to guide people with the right path of living Enlightenment.
Because people look up to Him as God, they would obviously follow the path He sets. People’s anyakāra, the expectation that world has from Kṛṣṇa is that He is God, He is Bhagavān. They would simply follow what He does. He is now responsible to fulfill even others’ image about Him for leading them on the correct path. That is Bhagavān Kṛṣṇa’s authenticity and responsibility!

When you fulfill the expectation of others, only then you realize that it is your own expectations that are fulfilled”
Guru Purnima is such a rare day, when Guru accepts bhiksha and burns the karmas of the disciples. Guru Bhakti – authenticity in your relationship with the Guru – is his message for Guru Purnima 2015. To those who consider him as Guru, he declared that – “I want you to have the inner image of SHIVOHAM (Shiva I am).” Whoever does that, he as Sada Shiva, committed to give the boon of LIVING SHIVOHAM.

“Inner Image”, the idea you have about you, inside you. Most of us have a confused idea. We don’t even have a clear idea about us – what we are and what we want or anything. Anyhow, the inner image, the idea we have about us. Second, “Outer Image” – the idea we project about us to others. In Sanskrit, Inner Image is Mamakaara – Outer Image is Ahankaara. And, “Others’ Image” – what others expect from us. In Sanskrit we call it Anyakaara. “Life Image” – is what idea we carry about life and others – Swa-Anyakaara. Just understand these four English words; that is … Continue reading Science of all four images
Surrender is stretching yourself to my Anyakara about you – stretching yourself to my image, my expectations of you. If SURRENDER happens for even a moment, I can enter your system and burn all the Karma. I will just enter your system and the seed which causes these issues, I will just roast the seed and after this, it will never sprout. Roasted seeds cannot sprout even with a million tons of water and manure. Burnt Karmas do not grow back. All your surrenders are your weaknesses, escaping, fear shelters, shelters for security. Most of the time your surrender to … Continue reading Surrender
