Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita is a manual of living that provides guidance and spiritual instruction for attaining the heights of human excellence. All 18 chapters are covered in this comprehensive translation by Swami Nikhilananda and exquisitely read by Chandra Om.

The Bhagavad Gita is a doctrine of universal truth. Its message is sublime and non-sectarian. The main objective of the Bhagavad Gita is to help people struggling in the darkness of ignorance cross the ocean of transmigration and reach the spiritual shore of liberation while living and working in society. The central teaching is the attainment of freedom or happiness from the bondage of life by doing one’s duty. Always remember the glory and greatness of God and do your duty efficiently without being attached to or affected by the results even if that duty may at times be unpleasant.

Do your duty as a service to the Lord and humanity and see God alone in everything in a spiritual frame of mind. In order to gain such a spiritual frame of mind, personal discipline, austerity, reverence, good conduct, selfless service, yogic practices, meditation, worship, prayer, rituals, and study of scriptures, as well as the company of holy persons, pilgrimage, chanting of the holy names of God, and Self-inquiry are needed to purify the body, mind, and intellect. One must learn to give up lust, anger, greed, and establish mastery over the six senses (hearing, touch, sight, taste, smell, and mind) by the purified intellect. One should always remember that all works are done by the energy of nature and that he or she is not the doer but only an instrument. One must strive for excellence in all undertakings but maintain equanimity in success and failure, gain and loss, and pain and pleasure. A repeated study with faith reveals the highest knowledge of reality of the Absolute and the Eternal.
