Talking Bhagavad Gita : Teachings for Life
The Bhagavad Gita is a spiritual discourse delivered by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the middle of the battlefield. It contain 18 chapters in which the Lord Deity Krishna teaches a variety of subjects such as the following.
ॐ The nature of the self
ॐ The need to restrain the mind and the senses
ॐ Withdrawing them from the sense objects through the practice of yoga
ॐ Performing desire-less actions,
ॐ The vision of the Universal Self,
ॐ The qualities of Nature,
ॐ Incarnations of God and
ॐ Reincarnation of individual souls
ॐ Devotion to God
ॐ Liberation and so on
The three main lessons which the Bhagavad Gita teaches are Duty, Discipline and Devotion. Bhagavad Gita is not just about devotion yoga but a holistic spiritual effort, which demands from people physical and mental purity, self-control, performance of duty, renunciation and devotion to God for their liberation. We learn from it that while devotion yoga is the most direct solution to achieve liberation its true practice is possible only for those who have progressed on the path of salvation through their previous effort.
