Bhagavad Gita for Geeks  
Bhagavad Gita Translated For Geeks
by Tapati McDaniels

dehino 'smin yatha dehe
kaumaram yauvanam jara
tatha dehantara-praptir
dhiras tatra na muhyati

Just like Windows passes from 3.1 to 98 to 2000 to XP to Vista, our souls continuously need an upgraded body. The wise user is not bewildered by these changes because he read the FAQ.

matra-sparsas tu kaunteya
agamapayino 'nityas
tams titiksasva bharata

O Son of Kunti, the temporary appearance of the Blue Screen of Death or the Defeat of the latest Virus are like the momentary awareness of those changing seasons you rarely see (since you never abandon your computer). They come from real-world perception and one must learn to ignore them and focus on your monitor.

yam hi na vyathayanty ete
purusam purusarsabha
sama-duhkha-sukham dhiram
so 'mrtatvaya kalpate

O best among geeks [Arjuna], the person who is not disturbed by high scores or technical problems and can maintain his focus is ready to reach the next level of the game.
