The Gita

The Gita is a section of the Mahabharata. It is a dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. In the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna urges Arjuna to fight for his rights and be true to his Dharma. (The nature of a Kshatriya is to fight and that is his Duty). However. Krishna urges Arjuna that he must act for the action alone and not for the fruit of the actions. The fruits of the action have to be surrendered to the Lord in a spirit of Yagna (renunciation).

The Bhagavad-Gita Is India’s richest gift to human­ity. It talks of life as it was and as it shall always be. Hence its message will always hold true.

Some people claim that refuge in religion is an escapism. The Bhagavad-Gita refutes that theory, as the Gita does not propagate ascetism but courage and valour and to face boldly life’s ups and downs.

The Gita also teaches that we must always carry the knowledge that the Ray Divine or Atman, which is present in us, is as much present in the other and that we all are part of a great Cosmic plan which, in its true essence, is Divine.

The Gita rightly exclaims

Soul of Man!
How thou dost seem
Like the water!
From Heaven it Cometh;
To Heaven It ascends.
