Swadharma

		Om Vishnave Namaha

Namaskars,

In Srimad Bhagavath Gita, Krishna ParamAthmA says one
should be involved in one's own Swadharma and should
not get involved in the activities not prescribed to
him. Here I would like to have some clarifications. I
am a Brahmin (Sri Vaishnava) and I have my own
Swadharma. But I am not doing my duty of approaching
my AchArya for Enlightenment. As a Brahmin my
Swadharma is to engage myself full time for spiritual
progress and learn about Him through AchArya's grace.
But I am not doing this. I am a final year student of
BITS,Pilani and next year will proceed for Atomic
Research. So I am moving miles away from my Swadharma!
I don't do anything other than daily reciting
ThirupallAndu, Vishnu Sahasranam, Hayagriva slokam and
Sundarakandam(kanto 36). Nothing more! I feel very
guilty of not following His advice in Gita. I don't
think I will get chance to learn directly  from
AchAryas. I would like to have advise from you all.

Om Namo Narayanaya Namaha.

AdiyEn,
Aravind Gopalan.
