Foreword

The Bhagavad Gita is meant not just for the Hindus, rather it addresses the concerns of all religions, all of mankind.

It is a scientific masterpiece that classifies temperaments & emotions of human nature. Just as a TV monitor has pixels in 3 colors, namely R, G, B that are used to display an entire gamut of colours and shades on the screen, similarly the Bhagavad Gita states that human thinking is based on the three principles of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. From the various combinations of these principles is born the entire range of human traits.

Another aspect is the systematic classification of karma yoga, gyana yoga, bhakti yoga, viz. a thorough analysis of the jobs & endeavours that mankind is engaged in.

Apt lines from the Gita "Man is free to pursue what he will, but he is bound by his own temperament"

"To each whatever his faith may be, it is me that supports him and guides him accordingly" 7.21

Preface

The Bhagavad Gita is a Song. It is a song Divine. It is sung by the Lord Himself and His Devotee. Most of us in Bharata love to chant shlokas from the Gita. The mellifluous singing makes the atmosphere come alive. On Gita Jayanti that falls in December, some chant the entire 700 verses of the Gita in 3 to 4 hours.

In Rotary Inner Wheel Primary School back in 1972, when | was in the 2 class and my sister was in the 1 class, we memorised a chapter from the Gita and sang it aloud on stage. Papa has been reading a few verses daily ever since 2000 when we received our copy of Swami Sivananda’s Gita. In 2004 in Bangalore Ashram, Guruji told each ashramite to memorise 10 verses, to my share came the 16" chapter and I could muster only 3 shlokas by heart then. And of course we all know that Guruji chanted the whole Gita when He was 4 years old!

Singing is a natural expression of light heartedness, of joy and of communion.

Let us join in making our homes come alive to the sacred chants from the Bhagavad Gita.
