The message of Gita is fresh and relevant even today. It is not restricted to the Hindus or Indians. It is a gospel for all mankind.

Message of Bhagavad gita

Bhagavad Gita was delivered 6000 years ago on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. The Gita is a philosophical dialogue contained in the great epic Mahabharata. Ekadasi day, the bright half of Marga Sira month is celebrated as Gita Jayanthi and the message of Gita is brought back into our minds every year.

Pandava brother and warrior, Arjuna was to fight his cousins, relatives and elders including his own Guru, Dronacharya. Seeing them in the opposite camp in the battle, Arjuna, lost his heart and started arguing with Krishna.

It was then Krishna gave this masterpiece message of Gita to persuade Arjuna to perform his duty without worrying ‘who is who.’

Day-to-day battle of life

‘Do your duty. Stick to your Dharma (duty). Work selflessly. Surrender the fruits to God. Do not worry about results’- this is the important teaching of Gita. If we follow this, we rise above all anxiety and tension. We remain balanced in success and failure, in pain and pleasure. Gita gives us a practical lesson to live day-to-day life peacefully.

Life is a never stopping fight between good and evil. A real war is going on in our hearts. We have to stand erect and fight. God, our friend and guide, is always with us.
‘We must get rid of unnecessary attachment, anxiety and vices like anger, lust, greed and envy that rob our peace of mind. We must fill our heart with love and humility to serve’. This is the message of Gita.

Hi jayababy,

This is a great reminder to recall the importance of duty conscience.

"Work selflessly" and righteously is the Mantra to be strictly followed to achieve the goal of Life.

And what if the goal of LIfe?
It is to realize that 'I' am NOT different than other things existing along with 'me', and the soul is 'ONE' eternal infinity that is Omnipresent in all animate inanimate and the abstract, Omnipotent in the myriad energy forms and Omniscient of the Known and the Unknown.

Nice article, Jayababy. I have a copy of the Bhagavad Gita, but haven't picked it up in years. This has inspired me to retrieve it from my bookshelf. Thank you...
