Studies in the Bhagavad Gîtâ

Studies in the Bhagavad Gîtâ



The immortal poem, the Bhagavad Gîtâ. — the Lord's Song, — forms an integral part of the great national epic, the Mahabharata, and is a book by itself at the same time, and, as such, can be studied in many and various ways. It can be approached with a poet's spirit, and its grand imagery and far-reaching vistas of thought, its felicities of expression, coupled with pithiness and the other beauties of language and diction with which it is replete, will well repay such a perusal. 

To the historian, its value as an epoch-making synthesis of the various schools of thought, throwing a flood of light on the moot philosophical questions of the day, is immense, showing, as it does, how the thoughts of subsequent eras of history came to be modified and coloured by it. 

To the metaphysician it represents the extreme high-water mark of human aspiration to unravel the mysteries of being; and every school of metaphysics,  — the Indian Materialistic School — acknowledges its place amongst the hoary Upanishads of antiquity. To the individual also, it is always an invaluable scripture:
