Gita is a section of the Mahabharata.
It is a dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. In the
Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna urges Arjuna to fight for his rights and
be true to his Dharma. (The nature of a Kshatriya is to fight
and that is his Duty). However. Krishna urges Arjuna that he
must act for the action alone and not for the fruit of the
actions. The fruits of the action have to be surrendered to
the Lord in a spirit of Yagna (renunciation).
Bhagavad-Gita Is India’s richest gift to humanity. It talks of life as it
was and as it shall always be. Hence its message will always
people claim that refuge in religion is an escapism. The Bhagavad-Gita refutes
that theory, as the Gita does not propagate ascetism but
courage and valour and to face boldly life’s ups and downs.
Gita also teaches that we must always carry the knowledge that
the Ray Divine or Atman, which is present in us, is as much
present in the other and that we all are part of a great
Cosmic plan which, in its true essence, is Divine.
Gita rightly exclaims
How thou dost seem
Like the water!
From Heaven it Cometh;
To Heaven It ascends.
