The Bhagavad Gita’s relevance today
The Bhagavad Gita (the Song Divine) is considered to be the epitome of all Vedic scriptures and the storehouse of spiritual knowledge. It is the conversation that took place between Lord Krishna and Arjuna over 5000 years ago and contains a treasure of spirituality, wisdom and inspiration.
This Song Divine continues to guide humanity even after thousands of years, teaching the art of living skillfully and realizing one’s own supreme nature. Every generation and age type will find something useful in The Bhagavad Gita.
It is said that The Bhagavad Gita is happening in our lives every day. In our lives, many times we might find that we are stuck somewhere. If we examine a period in our life closely, we will find that it corresponds to a particular chapter in The Bhagavad Gita. We could be in despondency, caught up in action or seeking answers, swayed by cravings and aversions; or our life could be in Yoga, knowledge, devotion and service.
People say, Lord Krishna in The Bhagvad Gita provides a path, a solution, no matter wherever one is stuck in life.
