The first round of inter-religious dialogue between Islam and Hinduism in New Delhi/5

Bolkhari: Divine nature guides mankind towards God

The Head of Society for the National Heritage of Iran states: "The divine coming from God and placed within mankind, ultimately leads him to his own truth and it is precisely because of the divine nature of human beings.

According to the Public Relations Office of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization (ICRO), Hassan Bolkhari Ghahi, a professor at the University of Tehran and The Head of Society for the National Heritage of Iran gave a speech entitled, "The Excellence of Meaning and Spirituality in Bhagavad Gita and Islamic Thought," which was held on the second day of the first round of the inter-religious dialogue between Islam and Hinduism in New Delhi, and stated: " Bhagavad Gita is one of the sections of the book "Mahābhārata" ,and "Mahabharata", is the worlds largest epic book with 100,000 verse , which is itself an epic face of Upanishads. The Upanishads are also the most prominent epic scripture taken from the Vedas, especially the Rigved."

He added: "I intend to present some of the teachings of Bhagavad Gita, which is the epic version of the Upanishads wisdom, and reveal its relation to Islamic teachings. The purpose of the description is the spirituality that exists in the essence of both religions of Islam and Hinduism. Let me begin by quoting Lord Krishna on some of the principles of spirituality and wisdom. When Krishna realizes about the doubtful mind of Arjuna on fighting evil, Krishna tries to reveal the truth of wisdom in an eloquent way in order to free Arjuna from doubt and perplexity".

Bolkhari continued: " Krishna in the third verse of Bhagavad Gita considers wisdom the virtues of superiority, which troubles Arjuna mind. He inevitably asks: "If wisdom is superior to deeds, then why are you calling me to war, Lord? Teach me how to free myself of my deeds".Krishna says in response to this gladiator: "There are two ways in all existence: the way of wisdom which is the path taken by the philosophers, and through deeds that is the path of proactive. The way to escape deed is not in avoiding initiative or escape from duty but being careless of the deed. Freedom of deeds means that you do not care about them. This is exactly the difference between the wise and the foolish or scholar and ignorant. The ignorant is fond of his deeds while the wise careless about it, and is neither caught up about the outcome and the benefits of the result nor tries to impress other of his deeds. The wise works and invest efforts into it because his essence calls him for it. He is not looking for love and hatred in this path, and he should not be."

He continued: "Krishna demands that Arjuna, as a servant of the God, should not care about his deeds, but to leave his deeds to God. He should distance from his own self and trust the God and leave the outcome to him and that is when the deed will be valuable and pure. The most beautiful aspect of this trust is in reaching the point where the boundary between wisdom and deed will be eliminated, and these two ways in the universe, wisdom and deed will be merged into one: "To ignorant, the latter is the desirable path while to wise, both are merged and become one. One who found one of the paths will benefit from both. Redemption lies within wisdom and good deeds, one who finds one will know the truth".

He added that "Krishna regards desires of the heart as the root and foundation of sins. Desires and unreasonable demands that darken the body and roots in evil, and states: "Yes, desire ruins everything, desire is your enemy, and your most fierce enemies ... desire will breach into every sense, mind, and intelligence, makes wisdom unattainable, and will make him feel lost. Arjuna, take possession of the senses and destroy desires as desire ruins wisdom. "And this long quote is exactly the same as that of Imam Ali (PBUH):" people, the most terrible thing that I fear for you are two things: one is the pursuit of desire, and the other is an endless wish. But the desire prevents understanding of the truth, and the endless wish will make you become unware of the judgment day".

In another part of his speech, he said: "All the verses of Bhagavad Gita are about spirituality and piety. The path from ignorance to education and education to wisdom. Wisdom results in self-awareness and self-realization which is one of the best qualities.

Bolkhari emphasized that: "All these qualities are stressed in Islamic teachings; for example, the lack of fear has been mentioned in the Quran as " lakhof". It is the characteristic of the believers and the benefactors who submit themselves to Allah with all their being and continue to do good deeds. The reward of such people will be paid by God and they will not have fear and will not be sad.

He also said that the divine that God has created within every human being, anywhere in the world, will lead him to his own truth, and this is precisely because of the divine nature in the human body.
