In terms of pure, spiritual knowledge the Bhagavad-Gita- Gita is incomparable. ... No literary source in the world compares with the Gita. Thus thou shalt be delivered from the good and evil experiences which are the bonds of action; and thy heart being joined to renunciation and to the practice of action, thou shalt come to me. He should in an undefiled spot place his seat, firm, neither too high nor too low, and made of kusa grass which is covered with a skin and a cloth. * There, for the self's purification he should practice meditation with his mind fixed on one point, the modifications of the thinking principle controlled and the action of the senses and organs restrained.

Acharya (in terms of spirituality )... the guru... spiritual master is one who fundamentally makes available the jargon of spiritual knowledge to the mankind at large. Arjuna's dilemma is acutely modern, and the Gita's message remains as relevant for us now as it was for ancient India.show more To restrict Yoga to any particular aspect of this comprehensive unity of man will be tantamount to denying the essential unity which underlies man himself. Krishna’s timeless call culminates in the practice of selfless devotion, determination, and spiritual absorption as the means to access a power beyond our own to overcome all fear — the power of God’s love.

Conventions of the Epic Poem with special reference to Mahabharata:In origin both ballad and epic have the same sources. The Gita had been spoken on a battlefield because life itself is a battle where evil perpetually attacks good and our sacred ideals are destined to be tested. Originally Indra was not the chief of the gods, but because of the religious observances instituted necessitating the invocation of the deity of the atmosphere, he superseded the more spiritual Varuṇa thus more Vedic hymns are addressed to Indra than to any other deity, except Agni (q.v.).

Here is one, however, which can be said to come remarkably close to that ideal....we have here the ideal of what an edition of a Sanskrit text for a Western audience should be." "... The divergent views naturally caused great differences in practice, for the followers of one would be found continually working, and those of the other continually doing nothing.

The Upanishads tell us that there is a Reality underlying life which rituals cannot reach, next to which the things we see and touch in everyday life are shadows. Sankhya here refers to one of six orthodox schools of the Hindu Philosophy. However, total abstinence from action is regarded as being just as detrimental as extreme indulgence. Madhu and his companion Kaiṭabha sprang from the ear of Vishṇu while the deity was resting at the end of a kalpa. The other section of the Vedas, the section on rites (or karma kanda), is also a means of knowledge but whose subject matter is universal ethical order, dharma.

It follows then that the enumeration of generals and commanders gone into by the prime minister in reply to the king must be a catalogue of all the lower and higher faculties in man, containing also, in the names adopted, clues to powers of our being only at present dimly guessed at in the West or included in such vague terms as brain and mind. Just see how in this chapter—“Attaining the Supreme”—Srila Prabhupada repeatedly emphasizes the chanting of these 16 holy names. It is not loving God for any selfish benefit but it is single minded devotion to God and total surrender to God. 24.

For Malhotra, the starting point of this battle is European Orientalism. No greater charity can be bestowed upon suffering humanity than right knowledge that leads to right action. The step from polytheism to monotheism is pretty much the greatest intellectual leap ever made, and who the heck am I to say that someone who makes that leap thousands of years before I was even born is only worth three stars?
