When the Mahabharat War took place, Shri Krishna chose to be the Charioteer of Arjuna. Although Dronacharya was Arjun’s guru, Krishna gave him mental and emotional knowledge. His teachings on the purpose of life, how to achieve goals, what is death? was all answered as the time was Stopped by Krishna. This Knowledge that Krishna shared with Arjuna during the war is made into a Beautiful book – The Bhagavad Gita!
Let us Look at why you should be reading Bhagavad Gita right now:
1) Bhagavad Gita is not just A religious book, its beyond that
Arjun had asked questions to Krishna long ago, like Five thousand years back on your behalf on the basis of life. How is life and how to handle it? This book never referred to any religion, whether Sikh, Islam, Christianity or any other. Moreover, this book can be read by anyone. This book is related to Success -Leadership-Motivational Manual where one Learns to be a good human.
2) An Instruction Manual to Our Lives
Just like how A refrigerator and phone need to work properly with the help of a manual, similarly our life requires a manual to run accordingly. Bhagavad Gita is not only a manual but also a basis on how our life will go on and what actions we need to perform.
The benefits we get by imparting the Bhagavad Gita are:
So, Krishna explaining Arjuna means the Supreme god guiding humans like us on A good path. It is indeed a responsibility of a man to carry out the teachings in Bhagavad Gita. Bookish Knowledge and all is fine, but what is greater knowledge of Attitude, Willingness to do, Wanting to do
Krishna motivates Arjun saying ” Uttisht” ” Uttisht” – meaning get up! and Do it. Slay the people for establishment of DHARMA.
3) Why you should read, understand and then implement the teachings revealed in Srimad Bhagavad Gita:
Mala- nirmochana- pumsam
Jjala-snanam- dine dine
Sakrd- gitamrtha- snanam
” One may bath daily to remove the dirt from the skin , but once a Person takes bath even once in the sacred Ganges water of the Bhagavad gita, For him the dirt of the material life is altogether vanished”.
One is able to understand this statement when one witness the truths revealed in Gita being verified, very often, by modern science.
It does not leave you to discover your own ways to handle and use that knowledge. It does not leave you brainwashed. Chapter by chapter it takes you on a journey to understand the various aspects of this Supreme knowledge and keeps on narrating how to master them and use them to raise yourself to the highest possible position in life.
paritraanaaya sadhuunaam vinaashaaya chadushkritaam |
dharma samsthaapanaarthaaya sambhavaami yuge yuge || – (Chapter 4 , Verse -8)
Krishna is born from ages – ages , For the protection of the good, for the destruction of the evil and for the establishment of dharma.
Now, Lets Look into A small Story:
An old man from Lahore got a book of Bhagawad Gita , he always prayed and kept the book inside a cloth and paid his Obeisance daily before he went to work. Then After returning from work. He passed this legacy to his Son and Grandson, where all followed. They were from a rich family and success never skipped from their hands. Even if the book was closed they reaped the benefits, now imagine if he read the book? Imagine what will happen if you and I read the Bhagavad Gita. See for yourself in the name of the Almighty.
