The Bhagavad Gita is meant not just for the
Hindus, rather it addresses the concerns of all
religions, all of mankind.
It is a scientific masterpiece that classifies
temperaments & emotions of human nature.
Just as a TV monitor has pixels in 3 colors,
namely R, G, B that are used to display an entire
gamut of colours and shades on the screen,
similarly the Bhagavad Gita states that human
thinking is based on the three principles of
Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. From the various
combinations of these principles is born the
entire range of human traits.
Another aspect is the systematic classification
of karma yoga, gyana yoga, bhakti yoga, viz. a
thorough analysis of the jobs & endeavours that
mankind is engaged in.
Apt lines from the Gita "Man is free to pursue
what he will, but he is bound by his own
"To each whatever his faith may be, it is me that
supports him and guides him accordingly" 7.21

The Bhagavad Gita is a Song. It is a song Divine.
It is sung by the Lord Himself and His Devotee.
Most of us in Bharata love to chant shlokas from
the Gita. The mellifluous singing makes the
atmosphere come alive. On Gita Jayanti that
falls in December, some chant the entire 700
verses of the Gita in 3 to 4 hours.
In Rotary Inner Wheel Primary School back in
1972, when | was in the 2 class and my sister
was in the 1 class, we memorised a chapter
from the Gita and sang it aloud on stage. Papa
has been reading a few verses daily ever since
2000 when we received our copy of Swami
Sivananda’s Gita. In 2004 in Bangalore Ashram,
Guruji told each ashramite to memorise 10
verses, to my share came the 16" chapter and I
could muster only 3 shlokas by heart then. And
of course we all know that Guruji chanted the
whole Gita when He was 4 years old!
Singing is a natural expression of light
heartedness, of joy and of communion.
Let us join in making our homes come alive to
the sacred chants from the Bhagavad Gita.
