Mahaabhaarat | Geetaa
The Bhagvad Geetaa is not only a Hindu religious book. It i book of philosophy for everybody. It has been translated in more than 150 languages. Read here the comments of some of the great peoples say about it.
The Bhagavad-Gita calls on humanity to dedicate body, mind and soul to pure duty
and not to become mental voluptuaries at the mercy of random desires and undisciplined
The Gita is the universal mother. I find a solace in the Bhagavad Geeta that I
miss even in the Sermon in the Mount. When disappointment stares me in the face
and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad Gita. I find
a verse here and a verse there, and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of
overwhelming tragedies - and my life has been full of external tragedies - and
if they have left no visible or indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching
of the Bhagavad Gita.
When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe
everything else seems so superfluous.
We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people
cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture,
the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his
duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become
Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.
The Bhagavad-Gita has a profound influence on the spirit of mankind by its
devotion to God which is manifested by actions.
The Bhagavad-Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of
endowing value to mankind. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive
summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is
subject not only to India but to all of humanity.
The Bhagavad-Gita is a true scripture of the human race a living creation
rather than a book, with a new message for every age and a new meaning for every civilization.
In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy
of the Bhagavad-Gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its
literature seems puny and trivial.
The marvel of the Bhagavad-Gita is its truly beautiful revelation of life's
wisdom which enables philosophy to blossom into religion.
The Bhagavad-Gita deals essentially with the spiritual foundation of human
existence. It is a call of action to meet the obligations and duties of life;
yet keeping in view the spiritual nature and grander purpose of the universe.
I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. It was the first of books; it was
as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene,
consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate
had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.
The Bhagavad-Gita is an empire of thought and in its philosophical teachings
Krishna has all the attributes of the full-fledged monotheistic deity and at the
same time the attributes of the Upanishadic absolute.
In order to approach a creation as sublime as the Bhagavad-Gita with full
understanding it is necessary to attune our soul to it.
The Bhagavad-Gita is not separate from the Vaishnava philosophy and the Srimad
Bhagavatam fully reveals the true import of this doctrine which is transmigration
of the soul. On perusal of the first chapter of Bhagavad-Gita one may think that
they are advised to engage in warfare. When the second chapter has been read it
can be clearly understood that knowledge and the soul is the ultimate goal to be
attained. On studying the third chapter it is apparent that acts of righteousness
are also of high priority. If we continue and patiently take the time to complete
the Bhagavad-Gita and try to ascertain the truth of its closing chapter we can see
that the ultimate conclusion is to relinquish all the conceptualized ideas of religion
which we possess and fully surrender directly unto the Supreme Lord.
The secret of Karma Yoga which is to perform actions without any fruitive desires is
taught by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita.
The Bhagavad-Gita was spoken by Lord Krishna to reveal the science of devotion to God which
is the essence of all spiritual knowledge. The Supreme Lord Krishna's primary purpose for
descending and incarnating is relieve the world of any demoniac and negative, undesirable
influences that are opposed to spiritual development, yet simultaneously it is His incomparable
intention to be perpetually within reach of all humanity.
From a clear knowledge of the Bhagavad-Gita all the goals of human existence become fulfilled.
Bhagavad-Gita is the manifest quintessence of all the teachings of the Vedic scriptures.
"Bhagvad geetaa Kinchitdheetaa, Gangaajal Lav Kanikaa Peetaa, Sakridapi Yen
Muraari samarchaa, kriyate Tasya yamen na Charchaa"
The Bhagavad-Gita is where God Himself talks to His devotee Arjuna.
Nothing has ever arisen in my life, internal or external, that the Gita has not
made clear and enabled me to deal with or understand.
