... an allegory for every person's moral struggle against their own baser side. The insight that in the struggle between good and evil we are all on both sides at once is just the beginning of the Bhagavad Gita...

Sounds interesting! Thanks. Makes me want to look into it more.

I believe we are both good & evil. Both the kingdom of God & evil are within. There’s need to “wrestle god.” Ironically those who don’t, tend to subconsciously spill out more evil.

It’s said that Krishna was borrowed from Christianity. Krishna’s parents were taxed, he was born of divine conception, etc.

"Know then Arjuna that in ages hence, a powerful wizard will arise in Orem, who will lead an army of tapirs as heralds for the great Ganesha. Ganesha will trumpet great joy for mankind. That is why you must fight Prince Arjuna!"

In “Orem”? :smile:
What have I been missing at those Orem meet ups?!!
