What is Bhagavad Gita All About?

Bhagavad Gita, I would say, has two parts to it. One, it tells us everything we need to know to live the life we have received  – consciously. It helps us understand what life is all about, who are we, what is our purpose and accordingly make the right decisions and choices in life.

Secondly, it is an amazing handbook which provides us all the answers we may ever need. Sounds strange and almost impossible but it is true. That is why it is not an ordinary book. Whenever, we are at crossroads, which we often are in this life, and we are looking for help in choosing the right path, we can refer to this handbook.

Bhagavad Gita is therefore considered worthy of being worshipped. Bhagavad Gita is also referred to as a scripture that has the stature of a GURU. Once we read it and understand it, we know how true this statement is. However, it is important to know that we need to study this scripture under proper and authentic guidance. That is the only way to be sure to understand it properly.

Similar to all forms of knowledge, we need to find a master who is considered an expert on the subject concerned to be able to understand the subject properly. The scripture by itself is a passive Guru but an active Guru is needed to understand this subject in its depth. We should be able to discuss, ask questions, listen to their explanations and most importantly we should have their guidance to discipline ourselves to start adapting the learnings from Bhagavad Gita in our lives and get benefitted. Once again, an ashram or residence of Guru is like the University campus for studying the subject of spirituality. We have to do exactly what we do to find a school, college, university or a teacher when we wish to learn anything in this world – at least. After all, this is the greatest of the knowledge available to us. This knowledge enables us with life skills in its truest sense and helps us achieve the best there is to achieve, which is permanent state of bliss – ananda.
