About Srimad Bhagavad Gita......
The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, narrated in the Bhishma
Parva of the Mahabharata. It comprises eighteen discourses of a total of 701 Sanskrit verses. A
considerable volume of material has been compressed within these verses. On the battlefield
of Kurukshetra, Sri Krishna, during the course of His most instructive and interesting talk with Arjuna, revealed profound, sublime and soul-stirring spiritual truths, and expounded the rare secrets of Yoga, Vedanta, Bhakti and Karma.
All the teachings of Lord Krishna were subsequently recorded as the Song Celestial or Srimad Bhagavad Gita by Bhagavan Vyasa for the benefit of humanity at large. The world is under a great
debt of gratitude to Bhagavan Vyasa who presented this Song Celestial to humanity for the
guidance of their daily conduct of life, spiritual upliftment and Self-realisation. Those who are self-controlled and who are endowed with faith can reap the full benefit of the Gita, which is the science of the Soul.
The Gita Jayanti (birthdate of the Gita) is celebrated throughout India by the admirers
and lovers of this unique book on the 11th day (Ekadashi) of the bright half of the
month of Margasirsha according to the Hindu almanac. It was the day on which the
scripture was revealed to the world by Sanjaya.
In all the spiritual literature of the world there is no book so elevating and inspiring as
the Gita. It expounds very lucidly the cardinal principles or the fundamentals of the
Hindu religion and Hindu Dharma. It is the source of all wisdom. It is your great guide.
It is your supreme teacher. It is an inexhaustible spiritual treasure. It is a fountain of
bliss. It is an ocean of knowledge. It is full of divine splendour and grandeur.
The Gita is the cream of the Vedas. It is the essence of the soul-elevating Upanishads.
It is a universal scripture applicable to people of all temperaments and for all times. It
is a wonderful book with sublime thoughts and practical instructions on Yoga,
devotion, Vedanta and action. It is a marvellous book, profound in thought and sublime
in heights of vision. It brings peace and solace to souls that are afflicted by the three
fires of mortal existence, namely, afflictions caused by one’s own body, those caused
by beings around one, and those caused by the gods.
