MyPencilDotCom: If you were an electrical engineer, how did you turn to spirituality?
Gaur Gopal Das: From childhood, I was interested in spirituality, but since childhood, there was also a desire to do something different for the world. I hated mediocre. Mediocrity is limited. The world is doing the same. When we did engineering, we thought that if we want to change the world, then machines can also be made, but many people make machines, it is very important to change them. When we change them, then machines will also become right and work in society. Man is also a machine, so thought we should work on them.
MyPencildotcom: What is the difference between dreams and goals?
Gaur Gopal Das: When you write the dream, step by step, and start working on it, then the dream becomes the goal. Otherwise only the imagery of the mind remains.
MyPencildotcom: What should today’s youth learn from the Gita?
Gaur Gopal Das: The Gita is not a scripture. The Gita is a style of living and a way of living. One of the most important things of the Gita we want to tell is that on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna inspired the Pandavas to fight the war. We always wonder how a peace envoy can inspire to fight a war but when it comes to religion, there is a need to fight a war as well. We say that the resources which are there, if the resources of the world are in the wrong hands, then there will be wrong work in the world and society.Power in the hands of the Kauravas, resources in the hands of the Kauravas means destruction in the society. That is why in Kurukshetra, Shri Krishna inspired the Pandavas to fight so that there would be a change of power, transfer of resources. When power and resources come into the right hands, the right thing happens in society. This is the message to all the youths, youths, and young people, that all resources should be earned.
The Gita message is not to reduce ambitions, if it were, then Krishna would not have inspired the war in Kurukshetra about the Pandavas. Power is important, resources are necessary, but good use is equally important for society. Don’t just make ice cream, be a candle that melts even if you want to light others.
MyPencilDotCom : How do you inspire youth for a practical and cheerful life beyond the spiritual?
Gaur Gopal Das: Our personality is very serious and very gracious but when I was with youngsters in some city , I saw that their attentions are very low, only 7-8 minutes as much as Gold Fish. Whenever you go to teach such serious principles to those with less attention, what will they learn? But if you package it properly, the same thing happens to them. First, it should be properly packaged. Then his theory should be relevant. Reach them according to the time and if brief, they listen.
