The Bhagavad Gita, literally translated as the ‘Song Of God’, is a part of the immense Indian epic, the Mahabharata, a story of the enmity and ensuing war between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. The Gita, as it is also called, enjoys an exalted position in India’s culture and philosophical milieu. This brilliant chronicle is regarded as the highest philosophy in the Hindu pantheon.
Bhagavd Gita shows path to the lost, answer to the confused and wisdom to all. It is considered to be one of the greatest spiritual books the world has ever known. The primary purpose of the Bhagavad- Gita is to illuminate for all of humanity the realization of the true nature of divinity; for the highest spiritual conception and the greatest material perfection is to attain love of God!
Some of the teachings of the Gita are as follows:
Thoughts about big or small, your or mine should be kept out.
Money mind can not meditate.
Desires come and go.
We did not bring anything to this world, neither are we going to take anything.
Progress and development are the rules of this universe.
Whatever happened was good, whatever is happening is good and what all will happen in the future will be good.
World is perishable and whoever comes to this world surely has to go one day.
Soul is immortal and our body is perishable. Our soul never dies.
We should do our work without worrying about it’s result, which is also called NISHKAMAKARMA. (About which Gunjan Talreja, guest writer, will be talking on the 24th of October).
