Now as a sequel to the Bhagavavad-gita, Uddhava gita was also spoken by the same Lord Krishna, to another dear and intimate devotee, Sri Uddhava. Uddhava-gita was spoken by Lord Krishna to Uddhava to exceute the final duty of this world — which is renunciation of all worldly attachments and take to the path of complete dedication to God. In essence, messages of Bhagavad-gita and Uddhava-gita are similar, but Uddhava-gita goes little bit further in the science of God. Lord Krishna instructed Arjuna at the end of Bhagavad-gita to abandone all varieties of religions and simply surrender to Him, and to execute His will only.

Krishna then requested Uddhava to visit Vrindavan with a message on his behalf to the Gopis and other residents of the village, who were missing his company. Krishna asks Uddhava to tell the people of Vrindavan to forget him, because only when they forget him he can complete his duties on Earth. Uddhava was so filled with the devotion of Radha and Gopika towards Lord Krishna that he stayed in Vrindavan for the next 6 months, where he also asked the Gopis to be his Guru.

The Gopis said "When Akrura came to Vrindvan, he took our Krishna with him and now are you here to take away his memories too, from us?

The content of the message and the feelings aroused by it when heard by the residents of Vrindavan constitute the highest understanding of love of God in the tradition of Gaudiya Vaishnavism. Uddhava was famous as devotee and a dear friend of Krishna but even he could not fathom why he had not prevented the destruction from happening.

Brahma , the creator and the celestials implored Krishna to return to his divine abode after the purpose of his descent was over. Krishna then explained why the Yadavas had to be finished, "Made insolent by prowess, heroism and fortune, and inclined to take possession of the whole world, this celebrated race of Yadu has been kept in check by Me as the ocean by its shore.

If I depart from this world without destroying the huge race of the Yadus, who have grown insolent the entire humanity will meet its destruction In reply, Krishna then expounds the Uddhava Gita.

Hamsa Gita

English discourse[ edit ] Tigunait pp. Sri Dattatreya gained enlightenment by observing the world, which provided Him with 24 instructors. These taught Him the futility of mundane attachments, the benefits of contemplation and forebearance [sic], and a path towards the spiritual self-realization of the Supreme. Sri Dattatreya, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, features in several Puranas where His teachings involve direct challenges to the pretensions and prejudices of the learner. His core message is "never judge by surface appearances but always seek a deeper Truth": the Earth is sacred, an aspect of God, and a puzzle that challenges the spiritual self to awaken to its true nature.
