All the Vedic scriptures have been written by Ved Vyāsji Himself and so there is no difference in substance. The only difference is in the form it is presented in. In all forms, Mahabharat, Ramayan, Bhagavat and 17 other Puranas, the same essence is discussed as Dharma. Let there be no confusion about that.
Bhagavat Dharma is not a specific or separate topic located within the Shrimad Bhagavat Mahapurān. The values of Truth, Love and compassion, as they are revealed in the lives and characters of devotees is to be considered Bhagavat Dharma. In this sense, we are exploring Bapu as Bhagawat Dharmi for the Universal values he adhered to in his lifetime.
What is the true benefit of human birth, ask the Shrimad Bhagavat? Remembrance of Lord Narayan at the end of one’s life which is a direct testament to the success of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth.
The path of devotion and dedication to Truth is not for cowards, in the words of Narsi Mehta. One cuts one’s head first and steps on it to proceed upon this path. The journey to fearlessness is a twofold vow:
- To fear no other;
- To develop one’s personality such that others may be fearless in your presence.
