On this day Lord Krishna delivered the most confidential and topmost knowledge of devotional service in the form of the Bhagavad Gita to His dearmost devotee Arjuna, and to humanity at large, in order to help all understand the purpose of life and the way to surrender to Him.
Bhagavad Gita is the transcendental dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna spoken at the battlefield of Kurushetra almost 5000 years ago. The Bhagavad Gita is organized in 18 chapters and contains 700 verses. In its true meaning, the work ‘yoga’ means ‘the process of linking’. It refers to the process of linking ourselves and our activities to the Supreme Lord. Bhagavad Gita answers questions regarding the existence of the body and soul, material and spiritual world, duties of man and much more. Anyone who reads the Bhagavad Gita daily is assured of spiritual advancement and knowledge.
