Bhagavad Gita Hinduism

Query: Bhagavad Gita Hinduism... The foremost of all Hindu holy texts available on mother earth!

Kaivalya Jnani:
The wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita best explains Hinduism! For all practical purposes Bhagavad Gita represents Hinduism... the philosophy of Hinduism... the doctrine of Hinduism! Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is one such sacred document... the knower of which becomes the knower of all. Bhagavad Gita is the end of all... the entire cosmic Wisdom!


The teachings contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita truly represent the entire philosophy of Hinduism. Why? It is Hinduism that confirms the existence of Avatar (god manifest in human form). In the absence of an Avatar (god manifest in human form)... mankind cannot survive forever. After a period of about 3500 to 5000 years... mankind needs services of an Avatar.

Why and what is it that necessitates the coming of an Avatar (god manifest in human form). It is Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism that confirms life rotating in clockwork fashion. When it is 12 o'clock in the day... humanity experiences the golden era... the Satyuga! As darkness falls... the ills in the society increase... pushing mankind towards Kali Yuga... a period of utter restlessness and degradation of moral and ethical values.

When it is 4 a.m. in the morning... the society reaches its lowest ebb! The ghor Kali Yuga phase of life starts. The faith amongst each other almost reduced to zero... it practically becomes difficult to differentiate human beings from animals. Kali Yuga is that phase of life in the history of mankind when adharma (lawlessness) peaks world over.


None world over ever remains aloof from the effects of Kali Yuga... the metal age! Time is ripe for a complete revolution... a renaissance is in making! Prompted by bloated ego... wanton desires and greed for materialistic riches rule the roost! Money... a means to an end becomes an end in itself! Might is right... Becomes the order of the day!

In such circumstances even man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed would fail! It is only an Avatar of the era (god manifest in human form) who re-establishes Dharma (righteousness) and gives the society a firm footing! The coming of an Avatar has its repercussions. The revolution... the renaissance demands sacrifice!

Almost 1200 million people are expected to die in the coming world war 3. Such devastation of human life would simply be unprecedented... something unthought-of or unheard of! The dawn of the next day when clock rings 6 a.m. in the morning announces the new age... the golden era... a period of absolute peace and calm!


Bhagavad Gita envisions in detail the advent of Bhagwan Kalki... the annihilator of Kali Yuga! During the times of Lord Krishna... who gave the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita to mankind... humanity was facing almost similar conditions as of today! Then came Lord Krishna... an Avatar of his era and presently mankind awaits the coming of Bhagwan Kalki!

Bhagavad Gita Hinduism go side by side! The gists of all teachings of Hinduism are contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita. Every single fundamental of life... every hidden truth is contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. The meaning of life... the philosophy of life... the values in life... all is explicitly detailed in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism.

The wisdom of Bhagavad Gita can never be surpassed by any other scripture existing on Mother Earth. Everything contained in the doctrines of Jainism, the Buddhist scriptures, the Islamic teachings... all is contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita! Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism has a message for every single individual existing on Mother Earth.


Bhagavad Gita is not a religion... nor is it a mere textual document! Bhagavad Gita deals in detail about the process of karma and destiny as explicitly mentioned in other Hinduism scriptures. It is Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism that explains the importance of karma... that hidden ingredient of life through which life moves from one manifestation to another!

The theory of evolution as explained by Charles Darwin is best detailed in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Manifestation to manifestation... body after body... it is our soul atman that manifests a body to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! It is the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism that explains the fundamental behind every soul atman manifesting a human body!

Bhagavad Gita makes clear the journey of life is undertaken by our soul atman within and not the human body! As per Bhagavad Gita every soul atman passes through a cycle of 8.4 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years) before it liberates forever from the cycle of birth and death and regains its original pure pristine form!


It is Bhagavad Gita that makes clear the underlying relationship between insect life, plant life, animal life and the form of human beings. Similar as every human being passes through different stages of life... the adolescent age, the childhood, the young angry man, the bread earner, the grown-up... every soul atman also passes through different phases of life!

The stages of insect life, plant life, animal life and the form of human beings are all intrinsically connected. The entire life span of 96.4 million years in the life of a soul atman is one single journey of life! In the circumstances how is it possible that the reincarnation, rebirth theory of Hinduism hold good. It simply cannot be!

There is nothing in the cosmic system that takes rebirth or reincarnation! The doctrine of reincarnation... the rebirth theory of Hinduism is totally flawed. When no soul atman can ever die... the question of a soul atman taking rebirth or reincarnation does not rise! Every soul atman simply manifests a new form after physical death of the earlier form.


Manifestation to manifestation... body after body... the life cycle of the soul atman moves uninterruptedly! The moment a soul atman reaches the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the human being having gained enlightenment and salvation... causes the released soul atman to gain permanent entry into the abode of God... the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism).

In Hinduism... the teachings of Bhagavad Gita are considered absolutely pure... containing no impurities at all! The teachings of an Avatar always are flawless... plain and clear! One following the path of absolute truthfulness... does not find it difficult to assimilate the wisdom of Bhagavad Gita... the 700 shlokas (verses) contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita.

Being flawless... containing no impurities Bhagavad Gita is considered sacred enough for taking oath in all courts of India. Bhagavad Gita is as sacrosanct as God Almighty himself. The dictates contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita flow directly from the abode of God. The dweller in Bhagavad Gita reaches the kingdom of God in no time!


The contents of the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism can never be assimilated literally. It requires reading in between the lines! Only followers of the path of absolute truthfulness... those having absolute faith in God Almighty clear all hurdles in the journey towards God. A true follower of spirituality... a believer of Bhagavad Gita finally gains enlightenment and salvation!

Traveling the path of Bhagavad Gita... following the spirituality route... one finally reaches the cosmic end of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation! Every human being primarily is a spiritual being... a spirit on its cosmic journey. The garb of human being... the form of human being merely a small sojourn in the entire life span of soul atman!

Does it mean... the end goal of Bhagavad Gita... the purpose of life on Mother Earth is realizing our true self! Yes... realizing our true inner self is the goal of spirituality and also Bhagavad Gita. The path of spirituality is best traveled as advocated in Hinduism. The path of spirituality advocated in Hinduism is different from rituals carried out in daily life.

Hinduism is absolutely clear about religion and spirituality. Those wanting to reach the abode of God indulge in spirituality. It is only spirituality... the path advocated in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita that leads one towards God Almighty. Indulgence in things ritual... one only gains momentary phases of happiness as a physical manifest being.

Permanent happiness... the stage of bliss can only be experienced by following the path of spirituality as advocated in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Following the path of spirituality is not a compulsion... it is a necessity for our soul atman to purify itself of the dross impurities within at the earliest possible.


The purpose of life for human beings is assisting our soul atman within in completing the cosmic sojourn at the earliest! This becomes possible when human beings travel the spiritual path willingly. Our soul atman being the ultimate master and governor of the body... it is in our own interest to travel the path of spirituality... the path of righteousness!
