So, if you are thinking of reading GITA you should definitely go for this one, well I am currently reading this and it's too thick, so I will take a good time🌻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First, I want to derive the meaning of Bhagavad Gita for you...
Bhagavad means Divine & Gita means poetry/Song...
Hence you can say it is a divine song that Lord Yogeshwar has uttered for the well being of all creatures in this universe.
When Arjuna faces confusions during the Mahabharata War, It’s Lord who delivers him this supreme knowledge.
Lord shows how the life of every being is like a battle through Mahabharata war.
For a moment just place yourself in the state of Arjuna and see what you see…
Lust, Greed, Ignorance and all darkness within you as your friends…
You get confused about how to destroy them... You search everywhere to enlighten your self and reach to Ishwara( Parambrahman) as Arjuna sees everywhere his own brothers and family. He is confused about how to win the war…
Here Lord comes and shows the path of divinity and leads him to win the war.
Lord says in Gita “ It is the most mysterious knowledge that I am expounding here. It is simple yet sovereign. Every creature can practice it. It is the king of all sciences around”
He tells about Karma(action), jnana( knowledge), Adhyatma(spirituality), Atman(soul) and Paramatman(supreme soul).
He shows the importance of action and sacrifice. He reveals the mystery of death and birth and tells how one can attain the supreme goal. He describes Yoga in various ways and suggests all beings to ponder upon it.
Hence the essence of Gita is Life. It is not a book but the force of life that governs all. Though it is printed on paper, yet this force is there for those who love Ishwara and want to see him in all creatures, beings, and non-beings.
Those that read Bhagavad Gita without understanding that Krishna is God, will have a beautiful temple that is empty. You may still marvel at the architecture, and appreciate the intricate marble work and wood carvings; you may feel the tranquillity and enjoy the peacefulness; experience a sense of awe and inspiration seeing the beautiful craftsmanship and the devotion in the artwork, but without a Deity present there for whom all the work has been done, then it’s just a beautiful but empty building.
Don’t appreciate Bhagavad Gita as a beautiful, inspiring, but empty building, appreciate it as being the house and Song of God.
