This chapter of the Bhagavad Gita is named after the concept of "Shradda Traya Vibhaga," which translates to "the division of faith into three." In this chapter, Lord Krishna explains the three types of faith that individuals possess based on their inherent nature and how it influences their actions and beliefs. The chapter delves into the significance of having the right kind of faith and the impact it has on one's spiritual journey.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Gita disapproves of senselessly torturing the body in the name of rituals and fasting. This implies that the Gita promotes a balanced approach to spiritual practices and emphasizes the importance of treating the body with respect and care. It encourages individuals to engage in practices that nourish and support the body rather than causing harm or suffering.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of the following Verse in not part of Chapter 17 of Gita?

    • A.

      The faith of each is in accordance with his own nature, O Bharata. Man consists of his faith; as a man’s faith is, so is he.

      Senselessly torturing all the elements in the body, and Me also who dwells within the body – you may know these to be of demonical resolve.

    Correct Answer
    B. These three are the gates of hell, destructive of the Self – desire, anger and greed; therefore, one should abandon these three.
    Explanation
    The given verse is not part of Chapter 17 of Gita because it talks about desire, anger, and greed being the gates of hell and advises to abandon them. Chapter 17 of Gita focuses on the three types of faith and their corresponding actions, and does not specifically mention the gates of hell or the need to abandon desire, anger, and greed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Bitter or sour or excessive hot, pungent food is liked by

    • A.

      Sattvic People

    • B.

      Rajasic People

    • C.

      Tamasic People

    • D.

      Both Rajasic and Tamasic People

    Correct Answer
    B. Rajasic People
    Explanation
    Rajasic people are known to have an intense and active nature. They are driven by passion and desire and are attracted to stimulating experiences. Bitter or sour or excessive hot, pungent food can be seen as intense and stimulating flavors, which aligns with the preferences of Rajasic people. On the other hand, Sattvic people tend to prefer pure and balanced food, while Tamasic people are inclined towards heavy and dull food. Therefore, the correct answer is Rajasic people.

    Rate this question:

  • 5.

      Food which is dry and burning

    • B.

      Bitter, sour, saline, pungent

    • C.

      Food which increases purity, strength

    • D.

      Stale, tasteless or rotten

    Correct Answer
    D. Stale, tasteless or rotten
    Explanation
    Tamasic people are those who have a predominantly tamasic nature, which is characterized by inertia, laziness, and a lack of clarity. These individuals are drawn towards food that is stale, tasteless, or rotten because it aligns with their dull and stagnant energy. Such food lacks vitality and freshness, reflecting their own stagnant state of mind. Additionally, tamasic people may also be attracted to such food due to their inability to discern between what is good and what is harmful for their well-being.

    • A.

      That which is offered for desire fulfilment.

    • B.

      That which is offered out of fear.

    • C.

      That which is offered without desire for fruit

    • D.

      That which is offered to show off.

    Correct Answer
    C. That which is offered without desire for fruit
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "That which is offered without desire for fruit." This means that the offering is pure when it is made selflessly, without expecting any personal gain or reward in return. It is a genuine act of giving, motivated by pure intentions rather than any desire for material or egoistic benefits.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following is not austerity of the body as per Chapter 17?

    • A.

      Non Injury

    • B.

      Harsh Fasting for desire fulfilment

    • C.

      Purity

    • D.

      Straightforwardness

    Correct Answer
    B. Harsh Fasting for desire fulfilment
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Harsh Fasting for desire fulfilment". This is because austerity of the body, as mentioned in Chapter 17, does not involve engaging in harsh fasting practices to fulfill one's desires. Austerity is typically associated with self-discipline, moderation, and control over one's physical desires, rather than indulging in extreme fasting for the purpose of fulfilling personal desires.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following is not austerity of the speech as per Chapter 17?

    • A.

      Speech which is truthful

    • B.

      Speech which is pleasant

    • C.

      Speech which causes no excitement

    • D.

      Cunning speech

    Correct Answer
    D. Cunning speech
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Cunning speech." This is because the concept of austerity in speech, as discussed in Chapter 17, involves being truthful, pleasant, and causing no excitement. Cunning speech, on the other hand, implies deceit or manipulation, which goes against the principles of austerity.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    • A.

      Hypocrisy

    • B.

      Good heartedness

    • C.

      Self control

    • D.

      Silence

    Correct Answer
    A. Hypocrisy
    Explanation
    Hypocrisy is not a mental austerity because it involves pretending to have beliefs, virtues, or qualities that one does not actually possess. It is an insincere and deceptive behavior, which goes against the principles of mental austerity. On the other hand, good-heartedness, self-control, and silence are all examples of mental austerities as they involve cultivating positive qualities and disciplining the mind.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following verse is not associated with charity in chapter 17?

    • A.

    • B.

      And that gift which is given with a view to receiving in return or looking for fruit or reluctantly is held to be rajasic.

    • C.

      The gift that is given at a wrong place and time, to unworthy persons, without respect, or with insult, is declared to be tamasic.

    • D.

      The austerity which is practised with the object of gaining good reception, honour and worship, and with hypocrisy, is here said to be rajasic, unstable and transitory.

    Correct Answer
    D. The austerity which is practised with the object of gaining good reception, honour and worship, and with hypocrisy, is here said to be rajasic, unstable and transitory.
    Explanation
    The given verse is not associated with charity in chapter 17 because it refers to the practice of austerity, not the act of giving gifts or donations. It describes a type of austerity that is motivated by selfish desires for good reception, honor, and worship, and is done with hypocrisy. This verse is categorized as rajasic, meaning it is driven by passion and attachment, and is considered unstable and temporary.

      Both Sattvic and Rajasic

    Correct Answer
    C. Tamasic
    Explanation
    Tamasic refers to the quality of ignorance, darkness, and inertia. Those who worship Ghosts and Bhutas for materialistic gains are considered to have a Tamasic nature. This means that they are driven by selfish desires and are not concerned with spiritual growth or higher values. They seek material wealth and power without considering the consequences or the well-being of others. This type of worship is considered to be rooted in ignorance and a lack of understanding of the true nature of spirituality.
