The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most renowned Indian scriptures that contain 700 verses. The scripture it’s well known to be the source of Indian spiritual wisdom that was spoken by the lord Krishna a highly supreme Indian personality to his disciples.
The main ideas in this context are working towards the called mission and become fully submissive regardless of what might be happening. (Ganguli, 2008) In an illustration, Krishna exposes out that the main Arjunas mission is to be a warrior.
Secondly, the divine worship and spiritually offering what is required. At this point the aspect of self-identity is condemned as it is believed to be blocking someone towards their mission. For example, Krishna points out that “we are entitled to work, but not to any of the fruits of our work”
Though the opening of the bhagavad Gita can be a bit contradicting to non-Indians due to many unfamiliar terms, I still remain an historical concept that is thrilling. The text is initially a two persona conversation that entails philosophy as well as Yogic principles as contrasting to battle treatise. At the beginning, there is some kind of conflict that is seen. Arjuna chooses to avenge Dhritarashtra for not passing the kingdom to Yudhishthita Arjuna’s brother but rather passes it to his own brother. As a result Arjuna fight with his uncle for the possession of the crown that doesn’t fit him. Arjuna gets motivated by Krishna not only to fight and win but to restore balance, good as well as fulfilling his duty as a good warrior. (Easwaran, 2007)
The main theme in this text is clearly pointed out as being submissive to God and mission. One should adhere and be a renouncer of their egoity within the self-man so that to do what god has called him to.
Bhagavad Gita is significant to the study of humanity as it’s explains deeps contexts of religion and history among Indians. Gita applies all ranks of human endeavor and gives wisdom to all beings with respective natures and needs.
