Essence of Bhagavad Gita
- An in-depth study of the Bhagavad Gita
- One of the major scriptures in all the world’s spiritual literature.
- Offers advice on the practical application of yoga in daily life
- Sheds light on the teachings of Vedanta, the highest vision of non-duality
The Gita consists of a conversation between Krishna, who represents our higher nature, the teacher, or God, and Arjuna, the spiritual aspirant. The discussion takes place on the battlefield, when a large war between cousins is about to begin. The battlefield symbolizes our inner conflicts as well as the struggles of daily life.
Arjuna has great difficulties in facing his elders, relatives, and friends in the battle, just as we have a hard time shaking off old habits that have become very near and dear to us, even those that cause us havoc! Krishna leads Arjuna through the various aspects of yoga and Vedanta in a step-by-step manner, clarifying his doubts, and giving him tools and encouragement to boldly face the battle, i.e. face the world and himself.
- The title literally means The Song of God or The Divine Song, and chanting it is quite enchanting.
- Mahatma Gandhi used to study this scripture on a regular basis
- Albert Einstein claimed that “When I read the Bhagavad Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”
