Query: Bhagavad Gita Translation... Essence of Bhagavad Gita explained in simple
The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is such a scripture... literal translation of which either in English or Hindi
carried no meaning in present times! Why? Bhagavad Gita translation means wanting to learn Bhagavad Gita literally!
On path of pure spirituality... we have to understand the underlying meaning... never the superficial literal
Prime reason why religious preachers... various masters and pundits of Hinduism religion
never understood Bhagavad Gita in their lifetime! The teachings of Bhagavad Gita have a deeper inner meaning to
convey... gist of which can only be realized by one who travelled uncharted path of spirituality... path of unknown
that finally led to God Almighty!
Free Bhagavad Gita translation is available in
various forms, various languages through medium of Internet and related books! But to fathom depth of wisdom
contained in Bhagavad Gita we have to dive deep into bottomless pit of jnana wisdom contained in 700 shlokas
verses... knowing which... understanding which human beings finally gained self realization... God
There is no dearth of Bhagavad Gita essays available free on Internet yet, most human beings
failed to understand gist of Bhagavad Gita! Why? Similar as we could not pull stem of a tree to make it grow... we
could not infuse jnana wisdom into a human being! Unveiling jnana wisdom in cosmic system occurred slowly...
Prime reason why God Almighty ordained a long journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an
earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years for human beings to reach stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and
finally salvation (moksha)! Human form being highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle... wisdom contained in
Bhagavad Gita was only meant for human beings... never lower forms of life!
Among myriads of Bhagavad Gita translations available in the market... one could reach the
truthful document only by following path of absolute truthfulness! For assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in
Bhagavad Gita... our remaining truthful all the time was necessitated! Most human beings world over failed to
realize this important aspect of spiritual life!
Compared to path of spirituality... people preferred travelling religious path... path of rituals that never led
anywhere! One never reached God Almighty via path of religion... path of rituals! For knowing our true inner
self... our soul atman... the spirit within... our understanding essence of Bhagavad Gita was
For understanding gist of Bhagavad Gita... original teachings of Bhagavad Gita were
necessitated! The original gist of Bhagavad Gita with English transliteration is available for mere $.60 (rupees
30/=) at most railway stations of India or directly from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India! Geeta press, Gorakhpur,
India also has a website presence!
The original teachings of Bhagavad Gita... doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in
battle of Mahabharata have no parallel in mankind! The messages contained in 700 shlokas verses formed summum bonum
of spirituality... epitome of spiritual pursuit! On path of pure spirituality other than assimilating gist of
Bhagavad Gita there is nothing further to be achieved by human beings!
Many readings of various Bhagavad Gita translations carried no meaning! Contemplation on
wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita was the essence of life! It is this path of contemplation that people feared
most! As is the prevailing belief that indulgence in Bhagavad Gita led to life of a recluse... an ascetic... a monk
who had to leave precincts of home and family life forever!
This is an absolute misnomer. Why? Even while remaining in family... even while pursuing life as a householder
(family life)... I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age! This is my last manifestation on mother earth!
Having become a pure soul atman... nowhere else to go further... I shall but attain salvation (moksha) moment I
leave my mortal frame!
Assimilating teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita while remaining in family life is a very
difficult proposition... but not impossible! Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa did it and so can others! Initially Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa took path of bhakti yoga (path of rituals) but finally he switched to path of jnana yoga...
path of absolute wisdom... that directly led to God Almighty all the time!
Every serious seeker of God Almighty... Traveler of spirituality understood this absolute
fact of life! Path of spirituality can be followed via path of Bhagavad Gita... never otherwise! Stated in simple
words... following path of Bhagavad Gita is travelling path of pure spirituality... that directly led to God
Almighty in present life!
Throughout my life I indulged in teachings of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi
Ramana... the two spiritual stalwarts who realized God in their lifetime! Why not travel beaten path undertaken by
spiritual stalwarts of earlier era! Everything related to Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana always
Right from six years of age, I remained truthful throughout! What people said or thought about me never mattered!
My goal of life was always absolutely clear... I wanted to see and meet God in this very life! 25 years of yoga
meditation... I finally landed in laps of God Almighty when I can commune with God Almighty every second of
In the present sensual environment dominated by bloated ego and glare of materialistic
riches... human beings pursued religious goals of life. Can such people ever be expected to reach God in their
lifetime? On path of pure spirituality there are no shortcuts. Everything in cosmic system was governed by
inscrutable laws of karma... as we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more!
Even though many summaries of Bhagavad Gita... translations of Bhagavad Gita are available
absolutely free on Internet and elsewhere... human beings still failed to realize the underlying precepts of
Bhagavad Gita! Unless we cut across shackles of karma forever... one could never understand what Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism was all about!
For establishing absolute control over five senses and mind, for travelling path of absolute
celibacy (Brahmacharya Vrata), for full awakening of kundalini shakti (the coiled serpentine energy lying dormant
in base of spine)... wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita was necessitated! Other than teachings of Bhagavad Gita
there was nothing required to be learnt further!
Assimilating jnana wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita... any human being world over... belonging to any religion,
faith or belief can finally reach portals of God Almighty in this very life! Why cling to ephemeral riches when
nothing carried to next life after death of present body! What ultimately transferred to next manifestation were
virtues earned in present life.
Merit never laid in the fact... how many times we read Bhagavad Gita! For assimilating
teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita... spiritual journey was mandated by God Almighty!
