      The Bhagavad Gita does not intend that you should pluck a leaf or a flower or a fruit from some plant or tree and place it before God. Nor does it ask you to bring water from a well or a river or a roadside tap. The Leaf that you have to offer is your own body, which like the leaf, sprouts green, fades, and finally falls off from the branch. The Flower is the heart freed from the pests of lust, anger, greed, attachment, pride, hate, etc. The Fruit is the mind, the consequence of its yearnings, which have to be dedicated to God. The Water is the stream of tears that flow from the eyes when one is in ecstatic bliss at the contemplation of God's glory. Offering these four is the real act of Sharanaagathi (total surrender).

        Ahimsa (non-violence) means not causing harm to anyone, but it is not merely refraining from inflicting injuries on others with one’s limbs or weapons. Non-violence also has to be practiced with purity of mind, tongue and body. There should be no ill-feelings, for that too is a form of violence. To cause bodily harm to another is violence, but so is speaking harshly. Your speech should be sweet, pleasing and wholesome. All your actions should be helpful to others.
