This is the current news on belief about Bhagwad Geeta in Russia.
I tried to post this yesterday actually but my message wasn't posted due to long Sanskrit words used without space in between possibly. Members please do give your input in the topic. Which verses do you think could the opponents have possibly taken as their base to prove Shrimad Bhagwad Geeta to be extremist? How would you give your interpretation of those verses to them? How would you advocate or would have advocated our case in front of the judicial system?
Give your views on the following verses (I have mine too but I will post later):
Adhyay 7: Verse 7
Mattah parataram naanyat, kinchidasti Dhananjaya..
Adhyay 7: Verses 20-23
Kaamaistaistai hritagyaanaahaa prapadhyantenya devataahaa...
...Labhate cha tatah kaamaan mayaiva vihitaan hi taan;
Antavat tu phalam teshaam, tad bhavati alpmedhasaam;
Devaan devayajo yaanti, madbhaktaah yaanti maamapi.
Adhyay 9: Verses 23-24
Yepyanyadevataah bhaktaah, yajante shraddhayaanvitaahaa
Tepi maameva Kaunteya, yajantyavidhipoorvakam.
Aham hi sarva yagnaanam bhoktaa cha Prabhureva cha...
Adhyay 18: Verse 66
Sarva dharmaan parityajya, maamekam sharanam vraj.
Now as against those verses, this one
Adhyay 4: Verse 11
Ye yatha maam prapadhyante, taanstathaiv bhajaamyaham;
Mam vartmaanuvartante, manushyaa Parth sarvasah.
Adhyay 10: Verse 41
Yad yad Vibhootimat satvam, Shrimad Oorjitamev va,
Tad tad evaavagachchha tvam, mam tejonsh sambhavam.
And in the same Adhyay of Vibhooti Yog, God puts Krishna's name among many illustrations. Vrishninaam Vaasudevosmi, even though HE is speaking through the body of Krishna only.
Adhyay 03: Verse 35
Adhyay 18: Verse 47
Shreyaan swadharmo vigunah, pardharmaat swanushthitaat...
