In today's world, one doesn't find time to study all the Holy Scriptures and pursue the path of spirituality. However many people recommend that one should definitely read Srimad Bhagavad Gita book, at least once. Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a sacred scripture that has been taught to us by the Supreme Lord Himself. It has been written in the form of a conversation between Lord Krishna and His best friend Arjuna. Nowadays, this book is available in many languages but to understand this Gita better, one should read it in the original Sanskrit language. Sanskrit is a very challenging language to read and understand, but it can only be understood with the help of appropriate instruction offered by knowledgeable pandits.
The Srimad Bhagavad Gita has a pure and divine message to deliver. It is the ultimate protector of all living beings and ensures that they live in harmony with nature. It describes the true path to be followed by one who wishes to understand the worth of the soul, how it should be protected, how sin can be eradicated from life, and what one should do if their self-actions have caused them distress in life. In addition, it also discusses how we should live our lives, how we should treat others, and what kind of relationship we should have with God and other living beings.
Reading the Bhagavad Gita regularly, attentively and with devotion can help you surpass the study of all Vedic literature because they are all based on this scripture. The age we live in is very different from the age of ancient India. In ancient times, Vedic sacrifices were performed with great devotion and
enthusiasm; it was easy to take vows, perform austerities and penance, and be charitable towards the poor. These days, however, many people are less inclined towards the sacred texts of Hinduism than they were in ancient times; this has led to a decline in religious activity among some communities, but
still one can satisfy the Supreme Lord through a devotional recitation of Gita!
There are also many other aspects of this scripture that can help us learn how to become better people. One of these aspects is the act of chanting this Gita while performing sraddha ceremonies. If we perform this activity then, we will be able to see our ancestors again in heaven and they will be happy with us.
Another aspect of the Bhagavad Gita that can help us live better lives is chanting it during any other ritual or ceremony. Additionally, if we recite the Bhagavad Gita at the moment of death, all of our sinful impulses are canceled out, and we are then entitled to freedom from physical existence. In temples also, Bhagavad Gita is read daily by thousands of people during morning and evening prayers.
In conclusion, the Bhagavad-Gita is a great book and can be read by everyone and anyone, regardless of age or gender. The book contains valuable lessons which are vital not only in this life but also in future lives. Therefore everyone should read this book, regardless if they are religious or not. In the last chapter, Krishna reveals that He is hidden in each one of us and teaches us how to recognize Him.
