Blissful is “Śrīmad-Bhagavad-Gītā” authored by the great sage Krishna Dvaipāyana (Vyāsa). Gita is sung by the Supreme God Krishna. (0)
*
Gītā is the holy book containing Lord Krishna ‘s admonitions to the great warrior Arjuna. This is the saga of glory and victory of righteousness. As a portion of the great epic Mahābhārata rendering well-being to all, Gītā contains the speech of Lord Krishna eternally true and significant. It is vastly studied by the wise. (1)
*
All Upanishads are the auspicious and beautiful cow. Lord Govinda (Krishna) is the milkman. Arjuna, the active warrior son of Kuntī, is calf indeed. Gītā, paving the way for salvation of human life, is the palatable milk. The wise are enjoyers of this sweet ambrosial milk. (2)
*
Perform deeds sticking to your own duty. You, the able one, lay emphasis on doing actions. With discriminative knowledge and with pure mind, be a devotee at the feet of the omnipresent Supreme God in the world. Verily Gītā teaches to equally endure both heat and cold. (3)
*
In the mortal region, Gītā admonishes humanism in noble behaviours. The prime aspect of Gītā lies in Knowledge, Devotion and Deed. Sacred is the Gītā with philosophical speculations of immortal soul. (4)
*
Gītā annihilates all the evils of Kali-Yuga and severs the shackles of birth-death-cycle in the mortal world. With the description of Yoga and the restriction of material enjoyments. Gītā gives divine enlightenment in the hearts of the people. Replenished with Supreme Brahman, Gītā is verily blissful. (5)
