I recently bought a book and this phrase came as a bookmark :) “Ignorance will be reduced to ashes in the incandescent blaze of knowledge.” -Bhagwad Gita It is a slight adaptation of BG 4.37 but I like it a lot
Introduction TheAum.org presents a free, anonymous and highly available API for the Bhagavad Gita. Motivation Many existing APIs of the Gita requires you to either sign-up or get some token to perform requests. We feel like this is not something one wants when reading The Gita. Holy books and texts should be generally available and not holding any string attached to it, therefore we created this completely free and anonymous API to let anyone get the Words of God on the internet, let it be for an Android app or for your next Web Project....

“For those who are completely absorbed in God-consciousness, the oblation is Brahman, the ladle with which it is offered is Brahman, the act of offering is Brahman, and the sacrificial fire is also Brahman.

Why did Brahman allow ignorance? Saṃsāra exists because we have a flawed understanding on the world that is based on limited perceptions and lack of knowledge and awareness; Avidyā. Since Saṃsāra is a cycle it doesn’t really have a “begin”, it’s beginningless. However if we consider Saṃsāra to be beginningless we also have to acknoweldge that Avidyā in every jīva is also beginningless. What does that mean? It means that every being that is subjected to Avidyā will continue to be subjected to the ignorance....
