Bhagavad Gita Chapter XVII: Yoga of Threefold Division Of Sraddha Faith
The Bhagavad Gita ‘Song of the Lord’ is a conversation between Lord Krsna and the warrior prince Arjuna on the battlefield of the Kurukshetra. It provides a practical philosophy which expounds the technique for an active and peaceful life. Above all, it ushers one towards the goal of spiritual Enlightenment.
Herein Krsna elaborately explains sraddha faith. He clarifies with an analysis of the three types of sraddha: sattvika purest, rajasika mediocre and tamasika lowest. How they relate to the type of ahara food, yajna sacrifice, tapa austerity and dana gift. The nature of these practices helps determine the quality of sraddha.
The concluding verses explain the spiritual terms Om, Tat and Sat. A seeker uses them as disciplines to reach the ultimate reality. Krsna dismisses anything opposed to these practices as asat, unreality.
