Not just another worldview, but another world to view ! Jagannatheshwari Mataji (Gita Daily)

Published on Aug 07, 2013

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 04, Text 10

“That’s just another worldview to add to the confusing plethora of worldviews.” Thus do skeptics dismiss Gita wisdom. They argue that as we can’t know which worldview, if any, is true, we had best forget metaphysics.

This argument betrays a dangerous frivolousness towards life’s most serious questions. Would we be so frivolous about any serious field like, say, medicine? Would we argue that the many systems of medicine are such a confusing plethora that we had best forget medicine?

Certainly not. Because we know that medicine is a serious matter, a matter of life and death.

Metaphysics is an even more serious matter, a matter of perennial liberation or perpetual entanglement.

Surely such a serious matter deserves more than just skeptical dismissal. The Bhagavad-gita (04.10) cautions that hot-headed, frustrated skepticism (krodha) blocks us from attaining eternal life.
