a simple beginning.
Simplicity is the hallmark of Gita. There is great depth in Gita, but
it is obtained and attained by simple conversations. No conditions are
attached. No high sounding sermons appear. Gita happened at the time
of Mahabharata war. The book starts with a simple question, a simple
request, and a simple desire. Krishna has been scientific, methodical
and very practical. Krishna makes sure Arjuna understands how to become
fearless, effective and perform at his peak. We shall learn how Gita
can be applied in our daily life, whether it is playing music, dancing
on a floor, competing for sports or managing a company.
door to divine can be opened from any aspect of one's life. Gita is
life affirmative; it teaches us to live life as it is, and face all
the imperfections it has inherent in it. Realization of the ultimate
is possible without leaving life. Krishna would like us to be at ease
in all situations of life, be it in a boat on an ocean or on a tank
in a battle.
he world has come to a point where practice of life based on Bhagavadgita
is going to become significant. Krishna valued the value system of existence,
Dharma. Krishna with his flute is a symbol of peace, happiness and joy.
He is as much for peace as is Buddha, Mahavira, Jesus and Mohandas Gandhi.
But when a war becomes inevitable, Krishna does not go away in a temple
to pray for peace; he stays involved to make sure Dharma is protected
and upheld. Krishna is prepared to travel that extra mile that others
mentioned above are not willing to.
