El sonido de un perro ladrando me despierta. Son casi las tres en punto. Con la luz tenue de una lámpara de aceite encuentro un cubo en la parte trasera de la “casa de huéspedes” de bambú (mi residencia en el gurukula durante los últimos cuatro meses), luego camino hacia las bombas de agua. El frío aire de febrero, aunque no tan frío como un mes antes, me hace terminar rápidamente con el baño. A pesar de mi prisa, trato de recordar un verso del Bhagavad-gītā que había empezado a memorizar ayer: ¿Cuál era?

The sound of a dog barking wakes me. It is almost three o’clock. By the faint light of an oil lamp I find a bucket in the back of the bamboo “guesthouse” (my residence in the gurukula for the past four months), then walk to the hand pumps. The chilly February air, though not as cold as one month before, makes me quick to be done with bathing. Despite my haste, I try to remember a verse from the Bhagavad-gītā which I had started to memorize yesterday: What was it again?

“O son of Bharata, according to one’s existence under the various modes of nature, one evolves a particular kind of faith. The living being is said to be of a particular faith according to the modes he has acquired.”

Srila Prabhupada’s purport elaborates on this subject of three modes of nature and how we all are carried by them, because all aspects of our lives are connected with the modes of nature and so also our faith. The word sraddha-mayo… maya here means “consisting of” or, as Srila Prabhupada translates it, “full of” or in other words, everyone is full of faith. What does it mean? It means that also the atheist is full of faith. The atheist’s faith is that there is no God. If everyone is full of faith—and we see all kinds of different sorts of faith—then what does that mean? What are some implications?

“Oh, hijo de Bharata, según la existencia de uno bajo las diversas modalidades de la naturaleza, uno desarrolla un tipo particular de fe. Se dice que el ser vivo es de una fe particular de acuerdo con las modalidades que ha adquirido “.
El significado de Srila Prabhupada que elabora sobre este tema de las tres modalidades de la naturaleza y cómo todos somos influenciados por ellas, porque todos los aspectos de nuestras vidas están conectados con los modos de la naturaleza y también nuestra fe. La palabra sraddha-mayo … maya aquí significa “que consiste en” o, como lo traduce Srila Prabhupada, “lleno de” o, en otras palabras, todos están llenos de fe. Qué significa eso? Significa que también el ateo está lleno de fe. La fe del ateo es que no hay Dios. Si todos están llenos de fe, y vemos todo tipo de diferentes tipos de fe, ¿qué significa eso? ¿Cuáles son algunas implicaciones?

How to read the Bhagavad-gita

One kind of standard approach for reading the Bhagavad-gita is that of Baladeva Vidyabhusana, where he says that Bhagavad-gita deals with five topics: isvara, jiva, prakriti, kala, and karma. The Lord, the living entity, material nature, time… It is said, we cannot do anything to change these. However, the last topic, karma, is the one we can have control of. Keep these five in mind.
