We read the Gita a million times.. We swear by the Gita and often proclaim it to be our favourite scripture. We appreciated the Lord and sympathize with Arjuna. However we ourselves, fall short in imbibing the pivotal teachings of the Gita. Central to the theme of Gita is the concept of Exclusive surrender to the Lord. If our study of the Gita has not got us to the conclusion of exclusivity in surrender, reading the Gita is a sheer waste of time.
Understanding the Gita through the books is not the same as having an experiential understanding of Gita. it is important to have intrinsic understanding of the Gita. Brahman is that factor which is life in the Within and in the Without. The Gita gives one a perspective and insight into Brahman.
