Introduction Essence Bhagavad Gita

Query: Introduction essence Bhagavad Gita... Can you assist me with information on the introduction to the bhagavad gita. I want to know the essence of the introduction to the bhagavat gita.


Kaivalya Jnani:
If one could total the essence of the entire Cosmos into one book... one Scripture... that would be the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata. Bhagavad Gita does not guide one on the spiritual path alone... it contains clues to every format of life... be it the physical manifest world or the inner world.


Right from the stage when the Cosmos forms with a big bang... until the dissolution of the Cosmos trillions of years later... every single aspect of life has been detailed in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. In broader terms Bhagavad Gita encompasses within itself the entire Wisdom contained in the Cosmos.

By assimilating the Wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... one not only crosses through the ocean of Samsara (worldly life)... but also gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) at the end of the journey. Having gained enlightenment and finally salvation (moksha)... the liberated soul atman enters the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism).

In whatever stage of life human beings be... it is the essence of Bhagavad Gita that makes one complete the entire journey... the journey not undertaken by the body... the human form but the soul atman within. It is Bhagavad Gita that explains to us the underlying relationship between the human body and soul atman within.


It is our soul atman that is the master and controller of the body. It is our soul atman that has manifested the human body... the human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! How a layman can reach the end stage of life... reach the stage of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed... all is explained in Bhagavad Gita!

It is Bhagavad Gita that explains the true crux of life. It is not the human form but the soul atman within that is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million earthly years). The human form is but a garb for the soul atman within.

It is not within the capability of the soul atman to purify itself. It needs a medium... a body to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! Similar as the metal within an ore cannot purify of its own and requires requisite mining processes and machinery for the same... the soul atman also requires manifesting a series of 8.4 million bodies before regaining its original pure pristine form.


The moment the soul atman becomes free of all impurities within... all over for the soul atman within... the cosmic journey finally comes to an end!

Bhagavad Gita spells out the path of spirituality for those seeking God in this lifetime. One who dwells mesmerized by the workings of the physical manifest world... the ephemeral world... remains limited to Ramayana which is what is was meant for.

As a human being the highest epitome human beings reach in physical manifest life is the status of maryada Purushottam Rama. No human being can ever cross the stage of maryada Purushottam Rama! By following the sacred epic Ramayana... by following the dictates of life of Lord Rama... the physical manifest life can be lived meritoriously in all its glory!


It is when human beings desire knowing the real self of us... the workings of the inner domain... the world of the soul atman... must we indulge in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. The Wisdom contained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita is tricky. One must think twice while traveling the spiritual path... the path of spirituality!

The uncharted path of spirituality is a one-way path. While gaining control over the senses and the mind... while practicing absolute celibacy... when the awakening of the Kundalini starts occurring spontaneously... the process cannot be reversed! It is not advisable to leave the path midway... either we travel till the end or do not travel at all!

I have observed many people in life walking the spiritual path and leaving midway. Their life practically becomes like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean. No doubt... traveling the spiritual path increases mental powers manifold... but it also takes away from the physical manifest life... the ephemeral world!


The true meaning of Dharma... the workings of karma... the absolute meaning of life... the relationship between insect life, plant life, animal life and the form of human beings... all is explained in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism in-depth. Bhagavad Gita can never be read literally... one needs assimilating the underlying meaning.

Bhagavad Gita is not gaining Wisdom on the spiritual path. Wisdom is not something to be gained. True Wisdom is gained when we remove ignorance from our working. As the ignorance... the dross impurities within the soul atman depletes... the soul atman having become purer elevates towards the end goal of journey... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!

In a nutshell it is Bhagavad Gita that explains to us... Wisdom is not about gaining something in life but shedding the impurities dross within! The absence of dross impurities indicates our soul atman regaining its pure pristine original form... the stage of enlightenment as a human being! The enlightened human being after salvation (moksha) finally enters the abode of God... a point of no return!
