The excerpts of the lecture delivered by Kapila Muni to his mother is seen in Canto 3 of the Srimad Bhagvatham. It says: ‘To assimilate the knowledge of the soul it is necessary that one abandons body-consciousness and attachment to worldly activities, by realizing that the body is a conglomeration of blood, bones, flesh and other waste materials.
The Gita needs to be revered at all times. It represents the vast expanse of all Vedic teachings condensed into 700 verses that have fathomed the length and breath of life, as a process. Many times, because of prior influence of other good scriptures, a person may tend to compare the Gita with them and may unknowingly misinterpret or miscalculate the deeper intentions of the Gita. It becomes vital for a man of intelligence to deliberate on the Gita more deeply, with a purified mind before jumping to conclusions.
