Bhagavad Gita


About Bhagavad Gita

The literal meaning of Bhagavad Gita is “Song of God.” This book contains 18 Chapters and 700 slokas or verses.


There are two great Itihasa or historical epic of India, called Ramayana and Mahabharat. Ramayana has 24,000 verses, and Mahabharat has 100,000 verses. Ramayana has occurred before Mahabharat. Mahabharat is the largest ancient epic on this planet. The 100,000 slokas of Mahabharat makes it 8 times as long as Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey together. Mahabharat has 18 Parvas or books. The 6th book or Parva is called Bhishma Parva. Bhagavad Gita is part of this Bhishma Parva. So 700 Slokas of Bhagavad Gita are part of these 100,000 slokas.


The 6th book or Parva is called Bhishma Parva. Bhagavad Gita is part of this Bhishma Parva. So 700 Slokas of Bhagavad Gita are part of these 100,000 slokas. The 700 slokas of Bhagavad Gita are simply a conversation between two friends one is the greatest archer of the earth named Arjuna, and another the supreme Godhead called Krishna. The confused Arjuna asks questions, and Krishna answers these, one by one. The conversation is timeless wisdom and relevant in day to day life. In this video Author/Presenter Raj Joshi provides details about Bhagavad Gita.

Bhagavad Gita - Manual for Life

Imagine if we have got this body as physical hardware and mind as software, then should there be a user manual for how to operate this body and mind? I am here to tell you that there is a perfect manual for this mind and body. If you master this manual, then you master this mind and body. That manual is called Bhagavad Gita. If we want to shape your body and make it active and fit for use, we usually go to the Gym. However, roughly 20% of our success depends on our physical health or activities performed by our body, and 80% depends on mental health.


For physical fitness, we go to the Gym, which can only give us 20% success. What about the rest 80%? For mental health, we need to go to a mental Gym. This mental Gym should have similar tools, techniques, exercises, programs, and boot camps to build our mental muscles. Interestingly Bhagavad Gita is the first mental Gym on this planet. It gives you all those tools, techniques, procedures, exercises, and programs which you can adopt in your life and get benefitted.

Bhagavad Gita - Type of Book

What is also interesting that the conversation is not taking place in a hermitage or Ashrama, not in a school or home, not in a quiet peaceful location, not in a King’s court or in a place of knowledge. The conversation is happening right where the action is taking place, on the battlefield. Where the battle is to be fought, where the confusion has arisen, doubts have come and clarity is gone, Arjuna can’t decide. That is why this book becomes the most relevant book because it takes all the issues head-on and provides solutions. What is also interesting that Bhagavad Gita originates in a war situation but it's not about war at all. The battlefield represents the issues we encounter every day in our life from diseases, financial issues, job losses, carrier move, loss of close relatives, and many more. Gita begins with doubts and confusion of Arjuna and leads to clarity and decision making at the end. Gita is not a book of religion and rituals. It is a book of logic, rationality, and knowledge that can be applied in daily life.

All of us face similar confusion and problems in our life, and the daily practice of only a few of Gita’s teachings can help us to overcome our problems.

The book demonstrates that Krishna is the 1st motivational speaker of this planet and universe and Gita is the first motivational book of the world. The ultimate goal of Gita is liberation. Learn how to attain happiness and go beyond suffering. While Gita gives you the tools and techniques it also gives a deep insight into various aspects of life and hence this becomes the book of following.

Why one should read and understand Gita?

Let us give you a choice of drinking the water of River Ganga at the following 4 places. At Wet Bengal when it finally meets the sea at the Bay of Bengal, at Prayagraj, at Haridwar, or at the source where it originates called Gangotri. Most of us will choose at its source Gangorti where glaciers are creating the river. Similarly, Gita is the Gangotri of motivation, positive psychology, and positive thinking. It is life’s manual. Do you want to learn this knowledge from all those third party authors, writers, positive thinkers, psychiatrists, and motivational speakers or directly from the 1st motivational speaker of this planet Krishna?
