Bhagavad Gita in One Page – 21 Minutes Of Krishna’s Discourse To Arjuna
The Bhagavad Gita is to Hindus what the Bible is to Christians, what the Koran is to Muslims and what the Daamapada is to Buddhists. The Bhagavad Gita is a condensation of the Upanishads into the form of Vedanta Philosophy for easy understanding. Vedanta is the science of human life as it exists at all levels. Vedanta is that philosophy which energizes man so that the best in mankind can be unfolded. The Bhagavad Gita, then, is an indispensable guide to one who has embarked on a spiritual path. Fortunately, its teachings have gained appreciation beyond the boundaries of India and have now assumed the status of having universal interest.
Comprising of a dialogue that took place between Lord Krishna and his loyal devotee Arjuna, the Bhagavad Gita unleashes enlightenment in the form of divine knowledge and peace of mind. Krishna’s great teachings and philosophy were accurately recorded by the revered sage Vyasa. It is customary in Sanatan Dharma that whenever there is going to be a Divine descent that it is preceded by the birth of a talented sage whose purpose is for recording the events as they occurred.
Vyasa was endowed with such divine vision that he could even reflect on the spiritual potentiality of Krishna. He was even capable to bestow divine vision to Sanjaya, the loyal Minister of the blind king Dhritarashtra. In this manner, three blessed souls shared the nectar of Bhagavad Gita simultaneously. Arjuna was the direct receiver, Vyasa was the recorder and Sanjaya was able to narrate it to the blind king as he saw the events unfold himself. Together all three of them were the carriers of this great philosophy from one age to another.
The Bhagavad Gita impresses on the mind of man that the basis of existence, the goals of action and the certainty of death are all based on knowledge and understanding of the self. It illustrates the relationship of the individual soul to the Super soul. The core of the teachings is based on conquest and triumph. Virtues and righteousness becomes strength while vice and wickedness are derived from weakness. The Bhagavad Gita demonstrates that crookedness is created from cowardice and the feeble at mind becomes its prey, whereas action derived from manliness leads to freedom.
There are eighteen chapters in the Bhagavad Gita. The first six chapters delve deeply into the science of the individual soul and focuses on Karma Yoga. Chapter seven to twelve explores nature. Nature as it relates to reality with its contact through the senses and the intellect. These chapters are devoted to the definition of God and the cultivation of Bhakti Yoga or unflinching devotion to God. The last six chapters covers the relationship between the Super soul and the individual soul. This section shows how the Yoga of Knowledge or Gyana Yoga contributes to the purification of the faculty of understanding.
The ultimate purpose of the Bhagavad Gita is to give mankind an opportunity to achieve perfection by allowing God realization to come within the grasp of each living human being.
