Brahma: Yoga of the Gita

V.H. Date (Author)

The Brahma-Yoga of the Gita has broken the limits of closed thinking and the artificial walls which are unfortunately maintained even now by the followers of the great Vedanta Schools. Its central teachings are: 1, that there will never emerge the illuminational direct and the concrete, blissful knowledge of Brahaman, unless one receives the Grace of God through a powerful God-realized Master; 2, that all kinds of altruistic works, penances, sacrifices, philosophic contemplation on virtues, and yogic postures, though a useful as means, will never be substitute for God-realization; 3, that what is nowa-days loosely talked about, an Anasakt-yoga or the Niskama Karma-yoga, can never be achieved without the ful-filment of the prior conditions of Asa-kti or attachment to God; 4, that Bhakti, Jnana (experience of God) and Vairagya are independent, and must grow together; 5, that experience of spiritual equality of all creatures before God must be the basis and the source of all other kinds of unity, equality and fraternity; and that 6, finally, man is only an instrument in the hands of God, and that his duty lies in participating in the nature of God and in his works, as also in leading the erring humanity towards fellow-felling, God-realization and the bliss of it.

About the author

V.H. Date

Vishnu Hari Date is a familiar name in the modern philosophical world. He came into prominence with the publication of his Vedanta Explained, 2 vols., and the Yoga of the Saints, which elicited the eloquent commendation from the eminent philosopher-saint, Prof. R.D. Ranade that, "it is a work which will command our respect, and that it is the outcome of his own deep conviction and personal experience". Dr. Date began his career as early as 1932 as Professor of Philosophy in the Colleges at Belgaum and Kolhapur. Subsequently he came over to Rajas-than in 1947 and was associated with Universities of Jodhpur and Jaipur. During this period many brilliant students had the privilege of working under him and got their Ph.D. He retired in 1963, as a Reader and Head of the Department of Philosophy, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur.
