Description

Bhagavad-Gita is the widely read theistic science summarized in the Gita-mahatmya. There it says that one should read Bhagavad-Gita very scrutinizing with the help of a person who is a devotee of Sri Krishna and try to understand it without personally motivated interpretations.

The example of clear understanding is there in the Bhagavad-Gita itself, in the way the teaching is understood by Arjuna, who heard the Gita directly from the Lord. If someone is fortunate enough to understand Bhagavad-Gita in that line of disciplic succession, without motivated interpretation, then he surpasses all studies of Vedic wisdom, and all scriptures of the world. One will find in the Bhagavad-Gita all that is contained in other scriptures, but the reader will also find thing’s, which are not to be found elsewhere. That is the specific standard of the Gita. It is the perfect theistic science because it is directly spoken by the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krishna.


FROM THE BOOK:

The strangest and the most unprecedented was the background when the spiritual wisdom of the Gita was revealed. It came out in the form of the dialogues transpired between Lord Krishna and Arjuna while they stood between the formations of the opposing armies ready for the battle. The spiritual philosophy contained therein is the essence of all the scriptures. It is not only limited to spiritual theology but also analyses psychology and prescribes practical follow-up. Thus, the Gita diagnoses spiritual conflicts and advises treatment. It is not meant for a particular religion or group but for the benefit of entire mankind.

A human being is superior to all creatures by being the source of thoughts, emotions and planned action. The intelligence helps him to cultivate all his dormant qualities. The modern science has proved that humans can even reprogramme genes. No other creature can even dream of it. Humans can explore their inner selves to reach the spiritual heights. The Gita's knowledge is a ladder to attain those heights and meet the Creator.

Lord Krishna has revealed the possibilities of various spiritual exercises including Karma Yoga. Karma is a natural reaction of a man. It leads to bindings and worldly trappings. The Gita teaches us ways to escape those bindings and trappings. Lord Krishna through the sermon of the Gita propounds the divine theory of selfless deeds and non-attachment to the rewards of deeds.

This Karma theory is quoted world-wide. He analyzed the manifest and unmanifest forms of the Supreme Power. The Gita reveals the cosmic truth of God being present in all creatures in the form of the universal Soul uniting all living beings as life-energy. This union is further extended to non-living matter as God being Omnipresent. Through divine spectacle Lord Krishna demonstrated to Arjuna how God contains everything visible in the cosmos and all the invisible forces. So, nothing matters in this world because only thing that matters is God.

The spiritual revelations drove away all the confusions and mental conflicts Arjuna was suffering from. What He told Arjuna is relevant to every human being. The Gita helps one understand the universe and the cosmic spectacle through the vision of the spiritual knowledge. It explains the relation of one's soul to the body, the soul's relation to the Supreme Power and how everything is related to everything else. Once the message of the Gita is understood, one can feel one's self extended into all other creatures, living beings, things, happenings and the Ultimate Truth, God. Then no confusions and conflicts can haunt the mind and the soul is liberated from all the feelings of guilt and remorse.
