TRANSLATION Of Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya

Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion at that time I descend Myself.

Now what does this actually means.Sometimes most of the verses of Gita are taken too seriously by us. Which actually are very subtle and practical.

Millions of innocent children were killed in Syria & Iraq, Million of people were killed in India during partition and million were killed in world war as well as man-made famine. Where was God then?

In Gita it self Lord Krishna repeatedly tells Arjun that neither ever there will be a time that I will not be there or you will not be there or the other people who are present in the battlefield will not be present. So if he is present at every era than why he is saying that he will take birth only when discrepancies increases too much.

The fact of the matter is that there will be in each era a “Seeker”i.e. Arjun,
an ” Enlightened Person” i.e. Krishna and others i.e. the other fighters who live a normal life other than the Seeker and the enlightened person. This enlightened person i.e. a Gyani as said in Gita itself is nothing but my own living entity of that era. Below is verse

Chapter 7: TEXT 17

tesam jnani nitya-yukta
eka-bhaktir visisyate
priyo hi jnanino ‘tyartham
aham sa ca mama priyah.

So Krishna is here right now and is taking birth every now and then but whether you are capable to see him. Imagine a person coming forward to You and says that he is Lord Vishnu Avatar. Will you believe him? I suppose you will ask him to lift the Himalaya. Even if he lifts Himalaya will you consider him God or will you consider him Allien?

You will be able to know GOD when the desperation will increase so much within you that you will start to feel shaky, you will not able to stand, your heart will shrink inside in depression, and then when you will seek for help from the knowledge of Gita. In other words you will have to reach the condition of Arjuna as described in Gita. When this happens that day god will manifest it self within you. It is not outside that God take birth but it is rather inside.
