H2H carried a long serial called the ‘Gita for Children’, which was of course suitable for all ages to learn from! It comprised of a modern style conversation between Lord Krishna and His devotee Arjuna and was packed with wisdom in easily digestible form. Now, here are five quiz questions from that series, which will bestow on you greater spiritual understanding.

1. In our January 2007 issue, Krishna explains to Arjuna how God runs the Universe: “When the Universe is created, God pervades it in two complimentary aspects. This helps to ‘run’ the Universe. These two complimentary aspects are Consciousness and _______, or Spirit and Matter, if you prefer.”





2. In our Feb 2007 issue, Arjuna expresses his confusion: “The same God is seated in all. The same God does the digesting in all people; the same God does the blood circulation in all people and so on. In that case, why so much difference between people? Why are some people good and others bad?”

What classic analogical example did Krishna give to Arjuna to resolve this dilemma?





3. In our March 2007 issue, Krishna teaches Arjuna the Purpose of Life. “This purpose is very simple. From God you have come, and to God you must return; that is all! People, may shake their heads and declare, ‘This is impossible! How can one make God the only object of life? What about family and relatives? What about work and relaxation? Should life become one long, dull and monotonous pilgrimage to something we do not understand?’ Let Me answer this doubt.”

What was the first step that Krishna recommended Arjuna to achieve this goal?





4. In our May 2007 issue, Krishna elaborates on the apparent diversity in man’s behaviour: “There are basically three qualities - also known as Gunas - Tamo Guna, Rajo Guna and Sattva Guna…The characteristic of a person basically reflects his mental attitude. Thus, a Sattvic person is gentle, usually calm, often smiling, generally helpful, soft-spoken, etc. There is a distinctive aura about such a person. A Rajasic person is restless and itches for action. Sometimes, he is even hyper-active! Of course, it is ambition and desire that drive his activity and make him dynamic. Naturally, such a person can get agitated, can become angry, feels disappointed when he fails, and so on. The Tamasic person is at the bottom, being a personification of dullness, sloth, inertia, laziness, and what have you. He is totally devoid of initiative, and a confirmed work-shirker! Well, that gives in a nutshell, what the three basic types of people are.”

What was Krishna’s reply when Arjuna asked Him whether a tamasic person, who knows that he is so, can change.”





5. In our June 2007 issue, Krishna explains how man can attain liberation: “Worldly desire is the main cause for rebirth. Every person has desires peculiar to his personality. But there is one thing that can be done and that is to change the direction of desire. Instead of desiring the pleasures of the world, have an intense desire for God and seek the Bliss that the Lord alone can confer. Thus, by converting one type of desire into another type, all problems can get solved...Such a person is called a Gunatheetha. ”

According to Krishna, what happens to a Gunatheetha?
