Modern Arjuna is looting the society

Arjuna wanted to withdraw from the war to save the society and was prepared to sacrifice wealth of his family for the sake of the welfare of the society. But Krishna gave more importance to punish the evil forces as a witness for the future regarding the divine administration of the world. Today the case is reverse and modern Arjuna is looting the society through business, politics and corruption in the employment for the sake of luxuries of himself and his family. The welfare of the society is sacrificed for the luxuries of family.

The atheism and rationalism has spread so much that people have lost even fear to hell and God. The priests, who are supposed to lead the society on the divine knowledge also became big business men and offer rituals as means to nullify sins and get the grace of God to continue the sins. In this atmosphere, for the sake of society, lot of miracles is the immediate requirement to establish the very existence of God, His divine administration and the unseen hell. Baba concentrated all His efforts including the concept of Nivrutti to rectify the Pravrutti of society, which is the immediate need. Gita is for Pravrutti of majority of society and Bhagavatam is for a few sages of Nivrutti and is a personal affair. Bhagavatam is like a Research institute meant for a few research scholars (Nivrutti). Gita is like the non-formal adult education to spread basic literacy in the masses.

I don't see any difference

I don't see any difference between wealth and business, politics etc.

I don't think Krishna's aim was any punishment to evil forces but was an internal self developing process of finding the link of God inside.

God doesn't need any act of any form Baba to cultivate processes. This is an old religious view that went bankrupt.

God also comes to punish evil inadditon to preaching

It is the climax of ignorance to think that the spiritual knowledge is unrelated to the present worldly affairs. People think that the spiritual knowledge is always related to the upper world only and this shows their ignorance. The Lord is simultaneous ruler of this world as well as the upper world. The Lord can grant any materialistic boon in this world and also can give simultaneously the protection in the upper world. The Lord is also involved in the social problems of this world because He is ultimately governing this society also. There is His government underlying in the present human government as the foundation. The present human government is like the castle seen above the ground. But the government of the Lord is like the hidden foundation present inside the ground. Jesus always referred this government of the Lord. Lord Krishna also exhibited the existence of this invisible government of the Lord by showing the vision of His cosmic form (Viswaroopam). Arjuna decided to withdraw from the war and thereby he thought that his grandfather Bhishma and the teacher Drona would escape from death. By this Dharmaraja will not become the king. Both the punishment of the evil and protection of justice were withdrawn by Arjuna. The actual petitioner was withdrawing from his own case. Then in such case Krishna, the advocate of Arjuna need not worry. Arjuna thought that he brought Krishna as his helper in his own case.

If the petitioner withdraws his own case, the court accepts and leaves the case in the present human government. But the ultimate government will not accept it. Even if the petitioner does not file his case, the case is registered in the court of the ultimate divine government. Therefore Krishna turned the tables diagonally opposite. In His exhibited Viswaroopam, Krishna showed that He Himself was killing the evil opponents called as Kauravas. This picture proved that Krishna is the petitioner and Arjuna was His helper. The petitioner will do his work even in the absence of the helper. You may think that the kingdom belongs to Pandavas for, which the war was taking place and therefore Arjuna should be the real petitioner and war must be his work. You will misunderstand like this as long as you think Krishna as an ordinary human being. But Krishna was Lord in human form and the entire creation was His kingdom. Therefore the society present on this tiny earth is also a small part of His kingdom. Every living being is under the rule of His divine government and therefore any affair of the individual or the society is His subject only. Arjuna understood the meaning of this vision and that his grandfather and teacher cannot live even if he withdraws from the war. Therefore he thought that it would be better to follow the instruction of the Lord and kill them so that at least he will please the Lord.

The absence of realization of the existence of this underlying invisible divine government of the Lord, which was preached by Jesus again and again as kingdom of heaven and which was exhibited by Krishna through the divine vision, is responsible for all the present burning problems at the individual level as well as at the gross level of the society. The human government is neglecting to propagate the awareness regarding the existence of this divine government. In fact the divine government also rules the human government. Perhaps the human government is feeling about the loss of its prestige by propagating the presence of this ultimate divine government. The awareness of the concept of this ultimate government of the Lord can be propagated through education at the primary level. But the government especially in India feels shy to introduce the spiritual knowledge in the education due to the so-called secularism.

In the judiciary system also, the emphasis that the Lord is the supreme judge is also not given. The statue of justice present in the court is covering its eyes with a piece of cloth and opening its ears. This indicates that the court has not seen the truth but renders the judgement based on hearing the witness. This clearly educates the people that the judgement can be mislead by producing false witness. The statue indicates the human judicial government with limitations. In the olden days, every temple was also used as a court. The statue in the temple is with open eyes and open ears, which indicate that the Lord is seeing everything and knows the truth. The third eye on the forehead of Lord Shiva indicates that the Lord Himself is the executive power in implementing the judicial punishment. In the olden days, both the parties would present their arguments in front of the statue of God. Then both the parties were left free. Within a month, the criminal side receives severe punishment from the God. By this the judge was recognizing the criminal. In this process, the involvement of God in the judiciary system was from top to bottom. At least now let the statue of human justice be replaced with the statues of all religions to protect the secularism. Let the court be made the temple. Let the divine ultimate government be fully exhibited. The Lord who is the supreme judge knows the truth without any witness (Sarvatokshisiromukham--- Gita).

God is also evil otherwise it is not God and evil is OK

God by definition is omnipresent, it also includes evil. Why should God punish itself?

And what is evil? From which perspective something is evil? Why God care about something which is an opinion based on a limited perspective?

(PS. a suggestion: you should learn to write succinctly - to say in 2 short paragraphs what you want. No one nowadays read long posts, especially of someone unfamiliar. You are waisting your time)

Every body is not God!!

If God is in every human being, God is present in your self also. Then why should you serve all? You can serve yourself repeatedly. Instead of serving 100 people, you serve yourself 100 times. In both cases God is worshiped 100 times. In such case every selfish fellow also is a real servant of God! If you say that God is divided into bits and every human being is having a bit of God and unless you serve everybody the whole God is not served. This is absurd because there is only one God who is indivisible. In such case unless you serve all the human beings on this earth, the service to whole God cannot be completed and this is practically impossible!
