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).
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.
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.
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.
Gita rightly exclaims
How thou dost seem
Like the water!
From Heaven it Cometh;
To Heaven It ascends.
