The strangest and the most unprecedented was the background when the spiritual wisdom of the Gita was revealed. It came out in the form of the dialogues transpired between lord Krishna and Arjuna while they stood between the formations of the opposing armies ready for the battle. The spiritual philosophy contained therein is the essence of all the scriptures. It is not only limited to spiritual theology but also analyses psychology and prescribes practical follow-up. Thus, the Gita diagnoses spiritual conflicts and advises treatment. It is not meant for a particular religion or group but for the benefit of entire mankind. A human being is superior to all creatures by being the source of thoughts, emotions and planned action. The intelligence helps him to cultivate all his dormant qualities. The modern science has proved that humans can even reprogramme genes. No other creature can even dream of it. Humans can explore their inner selves to reach the spiritual heights. The Gita’s knowledge is a ladder to attain those heights and meet the Creator.
Lord Krishna has revealed the possibilities of various spiritual exercises including Karma Yoga. Karma is a natural reaction of a man. It leads to bindings and worldly trappings. The Gita teaches us ways to escape those bindings and trappings. Lord Krishna through the sermon of the Gita propounds the divine theory of selfless deeds and non-attachment to the rewards of deeds.
This Karma theory is quoted worldwide. He analyzed the manifest and unmans fest forms of the supreme Power. The Gita reveals the cosmic truth of God being present in all creatures in the form of the Soul uniting all living beings as life-energy. This union is further extended to non-living matter as God being Omnipresent. Through divine spectacle Lord Krishna demonstrated to Arjuna how God contains everything visible in the cosmos and all the invisible forces. So, nothing matters in this world because only thing that matters is God.
The spiritual revelations drove away all the confusions and mental conflicts Arjuna was suffering from. What He told Arjuna is relevant to every human being. The Gita helps one understand the universe and he cosmic spectacle through the vision of the spiritual knowledge. It explains the relation of one’s soul to the body, the soul’s relation to the Supreme Power and how everything is related to everything else. Once the message of the Gita is understood, one can feel one’s self extended into all other creatures, living beings, things, happenings and the Ultimate Truth, God. Then no confusions and conflicts can haunt the mind and the soul is liberated from all the feelings of guilt and remorse.
