How would you explain the essence of Bhagavad Gita?
Here is the the essence of Bhagavad Gita. A great warrior who is fighting against injustice is suddenly overcome by sorrow. He had to fight a war against everyone he cared for – his cousins, teacher, uncles, classmates.. Overtaken by emotions, he attempts to give up the war.
Then his Guru takes him on a lesson of a lifetime (Yoda character of Star Wars was greatly inspired by this & shares a lot of similiarities). Over 18 chapters, Gita packs an intense analysis of life, emotions and ambitions. Here is the summary and the essence of Bhagavad Gita.
Elements of the Gita have inspired a range of leaders – from Mahatma Gandhi to Robert Oppenheimer (father of the Atom bomb) and creative works that span from Star Wars to Walden to schools of philosophy such as the Zen Buddhism.
