Why learn Bhagavad Gita?
Bhagavad Gita is considered the essence of all Vedic literature. Through time immemorial, this marvellous treatise of spiritual wisdom in the form of the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna instructing his friend and disciple Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, has been inspiring great thinkers and has been ushering forth newer and pertinent meanings to guide the lives of people at all times. No other philosophical treatise has inspired the lives of great men as well as of an entire spiritual tradition the way Bhagavad Gita has.
"When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day."
- Mahatma Gandhi
"When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous."
- Albert Einstein
So why is the Bhagavad Gita considered so special? What is so great about the subject matter of the Gita that one can derive newer and newer meanings out of it perpetually? Well, the answer is simple. Bhagavad Gita is the universal science of the soul and therefore it is a timeless (eternal) knowledge that is applicable to the entire mankind at all times, places and circumstances. The Gita is a life manual that teaches us the aim of life and how to live our life in such a way that we can get out of all the sufferings of this material world and attain permanent freedom and bliss.
