You see, there is no need to read too much of the scriptures. If you read too much you will be inclined to reason and argue. Nangta used to teach me thus: What you get by repeating the word ‘Gita’ ten times is the essence of the book. In other words, if you repeat ‘Gita’ ten times it is reversed into ‘tagi’, which indicates renunciation.

Bhagavad Gita is a perennial source of inspiration and strength for millions of people all over the world. For centuries, it ha been the guiding light for anyone interested in living a spiritual life and having a wiser and matured outlook towards life. No wonder, the Gita has a universal appeal and all-inclusive readership.

An eternal scripture like Gita too, however, needs to be restated and reiterated with the change in circumstances. Its eternal teachings need to be rephrased and rearticulated in order to met the contemporary needs. In the process of doing this, it becomes ore accessible and new insights are brought into focus.

Keeping this in mind, The Vedanta Kesari, the English monthly published by this Math, brought out a special issue in December 2008 entirely dedicated to this theme. It received an overwhelming response and an additional 2000 copies had to be reprinted to meet the demand.

We are pleased to present the same in the present form and hope it will be received with the same enthusiasm and interest and reach even larger number of spiritual seekers.


The essence of the Gita is: ‘O man, renounce everything and practice spiritual discipline for the realization of God.’
--- Sri Ramakrishna
