Book Description

FOREWORD

Swami Madhusudan Saraswati has written nine beautiful verses entitled ‘Gitadhyanam'. The very first verse is illuminating and highlights the profundity of Gita. The sermon of Gita was delivered by Narayana Himself to his dear disciple Arjuna and this sermon has been made part of Mahabharat by the great Vedvyasa. Gita showers the nectar of philosophy of non-duality (Advaita) in 18 chapters and delivers those who meditate on it from the cycle of birth and death.

Parthaya pratibodhitam Bhagwata Narayanena Swayarn Vyasena grathitam puranmunina Madhye Mahabharatam Advaitamritavarshinim Bhagawatim ashtadashadhyanim Amb twamanusandhami Bhagwatgite Bhawadveshinim.

The essence of Indian philosophical thought is contained in the Brahmasutras, Upanishad and Bhagwadgita. However, Bhagwadgita is the single repository of Bhrahmavidya, Yogshastra and the Upanishads. Aldous Huxley says, "The Gita is one of the clearest and most comprehensive summaries of the Perennial Philosophy ever to have been made. Hence its enduring value, not only for Indians, but for all mankind…"

Innumerable commentaries have been written on Bhagwadgita. The great masters like Adi Shankara, Anandgiri, Shridhara, Raman.uja and Madhwacharya etc. have explained Bhagwadgita in their own way. Many great men of our times Lokmanya Tilak and Gandhiji have been inspired by this great text. Millions all over the world read Bhagwadgita as a matter of discipline.

Gita teaches us to have faith in the Lord and oneself and engage in action without being obsessed of the result. In the course of life we are always in the midst of action. It is important to understand that the binding quality of action lies in the motive or the desire that prompts it. Gita shows us the path of detachment from desires along with devotion to our work. Action alone is our right but we have no control on the fruits of action because success and failure do not depend on individual but on many other factors. To accept happiness and sorrow, success and failure and continue to do ones duty with the evenness on mind is called Yoga. This is illustrated in a beautiful parable of Sri Ramakrishna "Be in the world as a maid servant in a rich man's house. For all intents and purposes she claims her master's children and property as her own. But at the core of her heart she knows that they do not belong to her. As the maid servant can with ease relinquish her assumed ownership of the master's property, be prepared for separation from earthly possession".

Gita teaches us to learn equanimity of mind to rid of selfishness and achieve devotion and excellence in our actions. Swami Vivekananda said, "A Yogi seated in Himalayan cave allows his mind to wander on unwanted things. A Cobbler in a corner at the crossing of several busy streets of the city, is absorbed in mending a shoe, as an act of service. Of these two the latter is a better Yogi than the former".
