Jai Shri Krishna.
I read many Bhagavad Gita quotes. But I have a doubt, between Path and Goal which matters more? Mahatma Gandhi had stressed both path and goal are equally important and hence he did not deviate from the path of non-violence. So was his theory right with respect to Gita?

Jai Shri Krishna.
Here the term “Inaction” refers to “Renunciation.” “Inaction in action” means if a person is involved in any action he should feel he not doing anything but acting as an instrument of God’s hand. Such person never get bonded to the consequences of the work and always remain free. So God advised us to give up the desire of the consequence of our work.
Such person can understand all the actions and the secret of all the actions even when he is not doing any action. This is what is meant by “Action in inaction.”

Jai Shri Krishna. The reason why Arjuna was so dear to the Lord was, he had completely surrendered himself to the Lord. Also in the previous life, Arjuna was Nara while Shri Krishna was Narayana which were the manifestations of Lord Vishnu. Hence in Mahabharata also Arjuna was like Krishna but the exception was he was more human in nature and Lord Krishna was more divine in nature.
There were some unique qualities like concentration in Arjuna. As a result of this virtue, he could control his mind completely and thus other evils like lust never could do any damage to him and his mind was only centered around Lord Krishna. So to acquire this quality we must have a controlled mind. Once our mind is controlled we can be nearer to the God.
Besides this, he had devotion for his elders. He always respected his elders like Bhishma, Drona. Compared to him, Karna, the other great in Mahabharata had lacked devotions towards God and surrendered to evil Duryadhana. Also he cheated Parashuram and insulted Draupadi due to lack of controlled mind.
So we must have devotion and controlled mind to reach God.

Jai Shri Krishna…
Thanks for the help. Anyway in the Chapter 16 and verse 21, it is mentioned, there are three gates to hell- greed, lust and anger. Hence one must get rid of them in order to reach heaven.

Jai Shri Krishna…..
With God’s grace we all are reached here, where we are today. However I am finding some problems in following Gita’s message. I am not able to overcome “lust” in my mind. I am not able to remove this thorn from my mind. Can anyone help me out in this area? As long as one suffers from lust, he cannot reach God.
