The Mahabharata is a comprehensive narrative of the Kurukshetra war fought between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. During the war, it was Lord Krishna who acted as the charioteer to Prince Arjuna (His friend and disciple), and guided the Pandavas to victory. However, before the conquest, Arjuna had to be counselled for his moral dilemma and despair. Lord Krishna explained to Arjuna that he must fulfil the dharma of a warrior. He also elaborated upon the struggles and predicaments that humans must battle and win, in order to follow their dharma and liberate their souls. The Bhagavad Gita is the compilation of this extensive and profound conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
In today’s time and age, people are in a constant rush trying to do, know, and achieve MORE in the smallest time possible. They want to stay relevant and be in demand in the rapidly changing external environment. With no time to pause and reflect, this addiction to faster living is creating a toxic imbalance in life and leading to emotional turmoil.
The Bhagavad-gita houses a wealth of knowledge that is as practical and relevant today, as it was five thousand years back. The study of this scripture helps one introspect, contemplate, and thus find solutions to the challenges and dilemmas of life. It helps make reflection, continuous learning and inquiry an essential part of life. The regular study of Gita also enables one to put purpose before self, and go back to being contented, peaceful and happy.
