A Disaster Movie in Slow Motion ! Diksha Mataji (Gita Daily)

Published on Aug 17, 2013

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10, Text 34

Disaster movies generallyshow people caught in a natural disaster trying heroically to save themselves and others from impending doom. However, not many of the people who like to watch disaster movies would like to be caught in an actual disaster themselves; there’s no guarantee of a fairy tale ending. Even fewer are the people who realize that all of us are already living in a real-life disaster;100% of the people reading this article will be wiped out 100 years from today.

Thiscarnage is caused by the disastrous feature of the world known as death that,the Bhagavad-gita (10.34) reminds us,devours everyone without exception.

Despite the cent-percent casualty rate, most of us don’t feel that life is like a disaster movie. One reason is that the movie of life unfolds in slow motion. So it’s possible to forget the direction of its motion if we want to. And we fervently want to.
