Introduction to Bhagavad Gita

Harihi Aum

Prostrations to Lord Vallabha Ganapathi, Ocean of Mercy and Kindness.

Salutations offered to Sri Shuka Paramarshi, the venerable Great Guru of the Rishis.

Obeisance paid to Bhagawan Shree Krishna, the Supreme Self, The Perfect Being.

Pranaams offered to Bhagawan Ramana Maharshi of Thiruvannamalai.

 

The Bhagavad Gita is undoubtedly the greatest discourse that has been gifted to the universe by the Supreme Creator. This beautifully complex multi-faceted discourse heightens one’s curiosity to know more about the static-dynamic structure of the universe and encourage one to introspect and contemplate about the purpose of one’s existence.

 

There are indeed many translations and summaries and commentaries written by great personalities about the Bhagavad Gita worthy of praise and appreciation for the sheer effort, dedication and analysis. There are also various understandings and interpretations of this complex and interestingly worded discourse that leaves more room for introspection and contemplation allowing an individual to seek the Truth of the Bhagavad Gita through Self-Surrender.

 

How else is one to know, realize, understand and experience this discourse of the Bhagavad Gita within themselves if not through Self-Surrender which can only be bestowed by the Sole Doer namely the Supreme Creator. That same thought has been echoed in every chapter by Bhagawan Sri Krishna who emphasized the importance of Self-Surrender to transcend the Avyakta or Unmanifest to become immersed and absorbed into the Supreme Self which is the sole purpose of one’s existence.
