Description

In the whole world-literature there is no book so elevating and inspiring as the Gita. It expounds very lucidly the cardinal principles or the fundamentals of the Hindu religion and Hindu Dharma. It is the source of all wisdom. It is your great guide. It is your supreme teacher. It is an inexhaustible spiritual treasure. It is an ocean of knowledge. It is a fountain of bliss. It is full of divine splendor and grandeur.

The Gita is the cream of the Vedas. It is the very essence of the Upanishads. It is a universal scripture for people of all temperaments and for all times.

Man is a composite of three fundamental factors-feeling, cognition and will. People have three different kinds of temperamentst-the active temperament, the emotional and the rational. So there are three Yogas-Jnana Yoga for the man of enquiry and self-analysis or rational temperament, Bhakti Yoga for the man of emotional temperament, and Karma Yoga for the man of active temperament. One Yoga is as efficacious as the other.

The Gila formulates the theory of the three paths: that of Jnana, Bhakti and Karma. According to its teachings, there are no conflicts among the three. It harmonizes the philosophy of action, devotion and knowledge. All three must be blended harmoniously if you wish to attain perfection. You should have the head of Sri Sankara, the heart of Lord Buddha and the hand of Janaka.

The central teaching of the Giza is the attainment of the final beatitude of life or perfection or freedom by doing the duties of life. This can be achieved through non-attachment to the fruits of actions.
