- It was recently said by a renown Indian academic that Sri Chinmoy's "Commentary on the Bhagavad Gita" is the best commentary available on the subject. In that respect, I dedicate my next postings to that commentary.
The Bhagavad Gita is perhaps the most famous, and widely-read scripture of ancient India. It was born in 600 B.C. The Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads and the Brahma Sutras form the three principal texts that define and capture the essence of Hinduism. In the Gita the Supreme is the pure Self, unaffected by any action or experience, detached, and unconcerned. He is the transcendental, the cosmic, and the individual reality that not only supports but also governs the whole cosmic action. He is responsible for the creation, preservation, and destruction of the universe. The Gita is a comprehensive treatise on yoga which includes various phases of the self's development and its final union with the Divine.
Sri Chinmoy states:
?The Gita is the epitome of the Vedas. It is spontaneous. It is in a form at once divinised and humanized. It is also the purest milk drawn from the udders of the most illumining Upanishads to feed and nourish the human soul. The Gita demands man's acceptance of life and reveals the way to achieve the victory of the higher Self over the lower self by the spiritual art of transformation: physical, vital, mental, psychic and spiritual. The Gita embodies the soul-wisdom, the heart-love, the mind-knowledge, the vital-dynamism and the body-action. The Gita is unique. It is the Scripture of scriptures. Why? Because it has taught the world that the emotion pure, the devotion genuine can easily run abreast with the philosophy solid, the detachment dynamic.?
