Jayadayal Goyandka - Bhagavad Gita Commentator – Founder Of Gita Press

Jayadayal Goyandka is famous as a commentator of the Bhagavad Gita and founder of Gita Press. Commentary of Jayadayal Goyandka is known as Tattvavivecani. In his commentary, he calls the Bhagavad Gita a storehouse of spiritual knowledge. Jayadayal Goyandka was born in 1865 CE at Chooru (Rajasthan) in a middle class Aggarwal family. From childhood, Goyandka took a keen interest in the Bhagavad Gita. The primary aim of the Gita, according to him, is to help man realize God through the two paths of samkhya (knowledge) and karmayoga (action); the path of bhakti (devotion) is not distinct, samkhya and yoga are part of it. Thus Jayadayal Goyandka recognizes only two principal paths. Such was his devotion to the Bhagavad Gita that he started a press called the Gita Press in 1926 at Gorakhpur. The Gita Press is now a name to reckon with in the field of publication of Hindu religious literature. Shri Goyandka was able to get the support of scholars such as Ghanshyam Das Jalan, Hanuman Prasad Po

Avoid Fault Finding – It Hamper Spiritual Progress

Our relationship with people around us is an indicator, which reveals if we are slipping down the spiritual path and hampering our spiritual progress. In her final message to the world, which is the gist of Vedanta, Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi (wife of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa) tells us not to see the faults of anyone, because the whole world is our own. When we tend to see others’ faults more than our own, and also remember to point them out more often than owning our own, we surely are slipping down the path. The nature and character of a person is known by what he/she speaks about others. Truly, it is the ‘unripe ego’ which indulges in fault-finding and slandering. When asked how to know if we are progressing towards the Lord or not, Swami Turiyananda answered, ‘One can know it oneself. Others also can know it. All his passions, lust, anger, and greed will wane, his attachment for the objects of the senses will diminish, and he will have peace at heart.’ Source –
