"Devotion is a means as well as its true end when it grows into a full treasure. When devotion becomes a treasure, you will need nothing more for inner fullness or affluence. As devotion grows, it will begin to free you of all desire, hatred and fear. It will relieve poverty, either by making you amply resourceful or by taking away from you the very feeling of poverty. Devotion also will remove your weakness, generating untold strength and confidence."

An invaluable compilation of Essential Concepts from Bhagavad-Gita (covering Chapters 1to 18).

This is a set of 6 books presenting the essential concepts in Srimad Bhagavad Gita in a unique manner. Reflecting over the concepts and revelations exposed in the book will inevitably lead the seeker to deeper and more enduring introspection and enquiry which will culminate in the much more desired Meditation and Absorption and finally to a state of stable mindedness. The ultimatum will be the crowning fulfilment derived out of a distinguished life of abiding harmony, ceaseless integration, lasting peace and ecstasy together with continuing expansion.

Description:

There are many commentaries on Bhagavadgita. But in this series, Poojya Swamiji focuses on the essential concepts presented in the Bhagavadgita, clarifying one concept at a time and emphasizing where exactly should the focus of the seekers be.

Extracts from the Book:

Spiritual wisdom and pursuit are considered mostly relevant to the solitary life of ascetics. It is also regarded as a faithful indulgence of old age and retired life. The young and energetic often feel persuaded to shun its benefits scrupulously. It is a strong belief that spiritual pursuit, when taken up earnestly will inevitably induce a deep note of withdrawal from the active life of involvement and achievement. For those who take up creative activity of the world aimed at visible external gains and glory, spiritual wisdom is held by many as utterly disharmonious and even disastrous.

It is not an uncommon fear that spiritual enlightenment dampens the enthusiasm and commitment for worldly pursuits. How can, it is argued, internal enlightenment and external involvement, which are opposed to each other, go together at all? The mental and moral excellence which spirituality is deemed to bestow is, at any rate, characterized by a note of stillness and inaction called naishkarmya by spiritual exponents. Should not then the urge to remain engrossed in action and achieve its benefits and joy necessarily come from an altogether different sense of value and usefulness about the world of matter? Votaries of active worldly life have thus generally stood by a strong aversion to spiritual pursuit.

But a proper study of Bhagavadgeeta will amply show how unfounded such belief is. It is a product of sheer ignorance and lack of rational thinking. The first verse itself provides a context and connotations which are very profound. That Dhritaraashtra felt like intercepting Sanjaya to hear a spirituo-philosophical discussion to comfort and strengthen his own mind before he could listen to the subsequent war narration with composure, speaks volumes to correct the error and dismiss the myth which clouds the minds of even the educated lot.
