Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita (Sanskrit भगवद् गीता, Bhagavad Gītā, "Song of God") is an important Sanskrit Hindu scripture. It is revered as a sacred scripture of Hinduism, and considered as one of the most important religious classics of the world. The Bhagavad Gita comprising 700 verses, is a part of the Mahabharata. The teacher of the Bhagavad Gita is Lord Krishna, who is regarded by the Hindus as the supreme manifestation of the Lord Himself, and is referred to within as Bhagavan - the divine one. The Bhagavad Gita is commonly referred to as The Gita for short.

The content of the Gita is the conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna taking place on the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra war. Responding to Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma, Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and prince and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies. This has led to the Gita often being described as a concise guide to Hindu philosophy and also as a practical, self-contained guide to life. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi describes it as a lighthouse of eternal wisdom that has the ability to inspire any man or woman to supreme accomplishment and enlightenment. During the discourse, Lord Krishna reveals his identity as the Supreme Being Himself (Svayam bhagavan), blessing Arjuna with an awe-inspiring vision of his divine universal form.

The Bhagavad Gita is also called Gītopaniṣad, implying its having the status of an Upanishad, i.e. a Vedantic scripture. Since the Gita is drawn from the Mahabharata, it is classified as a Smṛti text. However, those branches of Hinduism that give it the status of an Upanishad also consider it a śruti or "revealed" text. As it is taken to represent a summary of the Upanishadic teachings, it is also called "the Upanishad of the Upanishads". Another title is mokṣaśāstra, or "scripture of liberation".

  • Whatever happened, it happened for good.
  • Whatever is happening, is happening for good.
  • Whatever that will happen, it will be for good.
  • What have you lost for which you cry?
  • What did you bring with you, which you have lost?
  • What did you produce, which has destroyed?
  • You did not bring anything when you were born.
  • Whatever you have, you have received from Him.
  • Whatever you will give, you will give to Him.
  • You came empty handed and you will go the same way.
  • Whatever is yours today was somebody else's yesterday and will be somebody else's tomorrow.
  • Change is the law of the universe.
