H. G. Chandra Sekhar (ACBSP) gave me a 1st copy of the Bhagavad Gita, and thus by his mercy I began to learn Bhagavad Gita from him. From my constantly studying Bhagavad Gita, I have learned that the false identification of material life is due to our being ignorant of our real life, our ultimate relationship with the Lord.

I always thought I was this material bodily nature conceived from the womb of earthly mother, therefore I was in ignorance, ignorance of my real identity apart from the nature of delusion, or material consciousness. I was mostly attracted to Srila Prabhupada’s presentation of Krishna Consciousness. What really impressed me was the book called “The Science of Self Realization”. This was my first book, it gave me the love and devotion I needed to understand the Bhagavad Gita As It Is. The more I hear of Krishna the more I became enlightened of my real life, my relationship with Him. The verses 4:34-42, 3:36-43, 2:10-30 and 12:30-20 had created a strong impression on me and helped me to understand that I am a spiritual being.
