Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5 Verse 29
Gita 5.29: Those, who considering me to be the enjoyer of all the sacrifices and austerities, the God of the gods of all loks, and as unselfishly compassionate and the lover of all living beings, remain dependant on me, their peace ends completely i.e. their capacity to remain in peace finishes. Therefore even my worshipper remains highly distressed. Its evidence is also in Gita Chapter 2 Verse 66 that what happiness does a person who is devoid of peace has, and is also clearly evident in Gita Chapter 7 Verse 18 and Gita Chapter 6 Verse 15. Therefore in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 16-17, it is said that in reality, Supreme God i.e. the giver of complete salvation is some other God; therefore, in Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62-64-66, it is said that Arjun, in all respects, go in the refuge of that God, by whose grace only you will attain the supreme peace and the Supreme Eternal Abode i.e. Satyalok.
Important: Because Kaal (Brahm) God is the master of the gods (Brahma – Vishnu – Mahesh) of the three loks and the loks of the twenty-one brahmands, therefore is the God of the gods. Therefore, he is called Maheshwar, and whatever comforts a devotee obtains by doing yagyas or other religious practices (tap/austerity), its enjoyer (consumer) is Kaal alone. For instance, to enjoy after becoming a king, and to do various kinds of evildoings. Kaal God himself enjoys all of these in the form of man (mind) and then after heating one on Taptshila (hot rock) takes lustful material out of him and consumes it. Because of ignorance, foolish people are obtaining peace by considering this Kaal God as kind and loving. Like, billy goats of a butcher see that their master (the butcher) provides them fodder, water, and protects them from heat-cold. Therefore they consider him as kind and loving, but in reality that butcher is their Kaal. He will cut all of them, kill them, and realize his selfish motive. Likewise, Kaal God appears to be kind but consumes all the living beings. Hence, it is said that those are engrossed in sadhna considering me, Kaal, to be everything, their peace ends i.e they experience great suffering. In Gita Chapter 11 Verse 32, the giver of the knowledge of Gita is himself saying that, I am Kaal. I have come to consume everyone. Therefore the meaning of this Gita Chapter 5 Verse 29 is that on attaining Kaal, a living being has no peace. Therefore, it has been said in different places in Gita ji that for complete peace go in the refuge of Supreme/Complete God, the Peaceful Brahm.
