A Scientific Study and Exposition of the Bhagavad Gita for Modern Needs - The Transformation of the Human Personality: Vol. 1
The Bhagavad Gita is a divine revelation of the intimate relationship between God and man in the form of a dialogue sung by Lord Krishna to enlighten Arjuna, the human representative, to come out of the grief and delusion faced by him at the beginning of the Mahabharata war. This work is a scientific study and exposition of the Gita based on the essential teachings of the Gita with a view to bringing forth all noble ideas that provide a way for the blossoming of the human personality out of the finite limitations of personal desires and imperfections to a divine life of blissful joy, love, right living and firm understanding. This work discusses how the Gita transforms the individual material life of limitations into a divine life of freedom of wisdom and love aiding him to develop an integrated personality. This work develops the theme of the Gita that every human humane being is potentially divine and has the inherent power to see and know all things and shows how Divine perfections being universal can be attained by any man by a process of gradual elimination of the walls of separateness and imperfection. This work shows how the Gita tells you what the Bhagavad Gita teaches you for use in daily needs, especially when you are confronted with situations where you find no immediate solution. It tells the story of how the Gita teaches the world for awakening the human life. This work prepares the reader to find the divine path of seeing the oneness of humanity as all human beings are having the same consciousness to guide us from within. This spiritual awakening changes the way one perceives the world and one finds oneself without any sense of separation between him and the rest of the world.
