Query: Essence of sri bhagavad gita... Gita and
Essence of Sri Bhagavad Gita could never be completely summarized in words... nonetheless;
Bhagavad Gita shall always remain foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth! Why? What is so
prime about sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism that it formed citadel of spirituality! Is Bhagavad Gita the
most sacred scripture of
Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna forms core of Hinduism...
rather whole humanity! It is Bhagavad Gita that tells us about journey of life undertaken by our soul atman... the
spirit within! As per Bhagavad Gita... journey of life always belonged to our soul atman... the spirit within and
never the mortal human form!
It is Bhagavad Gita that tells us... our soul atman is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million
manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years! During this vast expanse of cosmic sojourn... every
soul atman is expected to gain liberation from cycle of birth and death forever and reach abode of God... kingdom
of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no
As per Bhagavad Gita... the present human form is but a temporary sojourn in the entire life
cycle of soul atman! Every soul atman manifested a body to work out its karma... remove dross impurities within! Of
self every soul atman is inert... it could not purify of its own! It needs a medium... a body to cleanse self of
all dross impurities within!
The journey of life for a soul atman begins by manifesting form of an amoeba (single cell
formation)... the first manifestation in cosmic life cycle! Thereafter it further evolves into multi-cell
formation... then insect life, plant life, animal life and finally forms of human beings! The human form is the
highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle.
It is only in human form our soul atman finally regained its lost original pure prime pristine
primordial form... when human beings reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation
(moksha)! Reaching 8.4 millionth manifestation is the ultimate goal of life for every soul atman. Human beings
gaining enlightenment is a requirement of our soul atman!
As per Bhagavad Gita, God Almighty is the only truth of life! How? As stated in Bhagavad
Gita... the present cosmos formed when God Almighty exploded self with a big bang! This resulted in all pure souls
atmans scattering all over cosmos at unimaginable speeds. In the melee... the hurtling souls' atmans gathered
impurities... similar as a rolling ball gathers moss!
God Almighty... the cluster of all pure souls’ atmans is not form of human beings! A source
of magnanimous primordial cosmic power... God Almighty always acted as Dhrishta (onlooker) never interfering with
creation of his! Right from beginning to end the whole cosmic system is governed by inscrutable laws of karma... as
we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more!
When life supporting planets like mother earth evolved in cosmic system... these impure souls’
atmans immediately manifested life starting life on mother earth! Travel in human form is the most pleasant
experience for a soul atman! It is only in human form our soul atman finally gained release from cycle of birth and
The doctrine of karma... meaning of dharma ... true meaning and purport of heaven and hell
(Swarga and Naraka in Hinduism)... all is explained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism in explicit detail! The
relationship between souls' atmans, human form... the manifest animal, plant and insect life... all is explained in
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism.
How could human beings gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)...
all is detailed in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Bhagavad Gita forms core of Hinduism... rather every single religion
existing on mother earth! Bhagavad Gita is a unique document that explains everything related to mankind... A-Z of
It is Bhagavad Gita that tells us our soul atman is the absolute master and controller of human
body and not vice versa! It is not within the capability of human body to manifest a soul atman. Bhagavad Gita also
tells us that in present times one need not study the sacred Vedas (Hinduism revelations)! Vedas... that primarily
relate to rituals are not needed in present scientific age!
As detailed in Bhagavad Gita... the 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita sufficed
for human beings to reach stage of enlightenment and finally salvation (moksha)! One may or may not refer
Upanishads (independent treatises) that contained abstract spiritual theories! For reaching God Almighty in present
life... one can even do without Upanishads!
Bhagavad Gita... also termed Vedanta (end of Vedas) contains abstract of all four primary
Vedas! The original gist of Bhagavad Gita with English transliteration is available for mere $.60 (rupees 30/=) at
most railway stations of India or directly from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India! This is a highly subsidized
publication indirectly supported by government of India.
The gist of Geeta is freely available worldwide still, people failed to understand teachings of
Bhagavad Gita that could not be understood literally! For assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita
it needs reading in between the lines! Knowing Bhagavad Gita one finally became an enlightened one... a Jina... a
The essence of Bhagavad Gita can never be understood from scientific point of view!
Spirituality... the essence of Bhagavad Gita is much beyond purview of science. Spirituality starts from point
where science ends! Science demands proofs that are not forthcoming in the field of pure spirituality. In the field
of pure spirituality absolute faith in God Almighty rules the roost.
As per Bhagavad Gita... born a human being... it becomes our duty to assist our soul atman in
the cosmic journey of life! By travelling spiritual path human beings not only assisted their soul atman but also
reached cosmic end of life... 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha)!
As per Bhagavad Gita god almighty could only be reached via path of spirituality... never
religion... path of rituals! As per Bhagavad Gita it is only by indulgence in path of jnana yoga human beings
finally gained enlightenment and salvation! In present times as per Bhagavad Gita one could not reach God Almighty
via path of bhakti yoga (path of religion)!
The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of
Mahabharata! The essence of Bhagavad Gita was preached to King Arjuna by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata!
The teachings of Bhagavad Gita turned the tide of events in favor of Pandava kings who were fighting Kaurava
Pandava King Arjuna who was not prepared to fight his close relatives and friends in the
battle of Mahabharata finally agreed to fight all. Pandava King Arjuna ultimately realized that present physical
manifest human form was a temporary sojourn for our soul atman. As a king it becomes duty of Arjuna to fight battle
of Dharma (righteousness) with adharma (lawlessness)!
It is Bhagavad Gita that proves beyond doubt about theory of creation! As per Bhagavad Gita...
the whole cosmic system was not created by God Almighty in seven days! It took billions of years before life
supporting planets like mother earth evolved in cosmic system. No sooner planets like mother earth evolved...
hurtling souls' atmans immediately manifested life forms.
Theory of evolution is also explicitly covered in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! It is
through complex process of karma and evolution life moved ahead in cosmic life cycle. Unless life evolved in cosmic
system... the whole cosmic system would become stagnant and die! From amoeba to human form... life gradually
Throughout my life until I reached stage of self realization... I never read Bhagavad Gita
even once! Still, it is as if I had dictated the contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita in one of my previous
manifestations! After reaching stage of enlightenment... self realization... the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism
has become like ABCD to me!
I can vouch for Bhagavad Gita like nobody other can! It is assimilating pearls of wisdom
contained in Bhagavad Gita... the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana... I finally
realized God in 1993... At 37 years of age! Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism contains purity and nothing but purity!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is the summum bonum of spirituality... epitome of spiritual pursuit! There is nothing
beyond Bhagavad Gita to be learnt in this life!
The doctrine of karma... the doctrine of nishkama karma is the most vital aspect of human
life! Offering fruits of karma performed to God Almighty all the time is what nishkama karma is all about! When our
soul atman is the absolute master and controller of human body... fruits of karma performed also belonged to our
soul atman and not the manifest human form!
One could establish absolute control over five senses and mind only by indulgence in nishkama
karma! For reaching God Almighty... establishing absolute control over five senses and mind was a necessity of
spiritual path. As per Bhagavad Gita one needed practising absolute celibacy for a period of 12 years in
continuation to reach God Almighty in present life!
The process of kundalini awakening... opening of Sahasra Pushpa (thousand petaled Lotus)... all
is explained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! One single scripture sufficient for human beings to reach stage
of enlightenment and salvation... wow!
