BG 11.55

Due to bad signal a substantial portion of the last lecture on Chapter 11 could not be heard; but whatever was heard is reproduced.
[Most probably, today's (11th December 2008) lecture was the conversation between lord Shiva and his consort Parvati, on the greatness of Chapter 11].
The most interesting portion of the story is that the Demon released the son and the son was called by his father to go home. But the son told that by listening to Chapter 11, he had come back to life and so henceforth, relationship with father and material things did not appear important to him. He further said that he would start studying Chapter 11, with dedicated mind. He also advised his father to stop listening to passers-by and start studying Chapter 11 to find ways to reach Vaikuntam. Thus saying, the son departed his parents and the house. That is the glory of Chapter 11. To show His true Self and His wealth, the Lord gifted Arjuna with divine eyes.
