The Gita is one of the greatest writings of the world. It is a treasure house of spiritual truths. It helps one to see the world as a training ground- "Karma-Bhoomi". The advice offered has helped many to face up to the challenges of life and come out a better human. This is a book you will always cherish.

There is a real need for people practising Yoga. Or other systems of self-development to continuously be reminded of the more worthwhile objectives in life, related to self-knowledge, spiritual awareness etc. our mind needs to be filled with spiritual thoughts as often as possible. We are continuously getting exposed to material thinking related to "me" and "mine" to the acquisition of objects and to preserving objects acquired, and the sadness at losing them.

It is the sense that reading from traditional literature, religious scriptures, philosophical thoughts etc. could be helpful. We have to expose ourselves to more worthwhile and long lasting thoughts. They help us in facing up to the irritants that come on our path all the time. It is a good reminder to one who strays away from the spiritual path in the direction of materialistic thinking.
