One of the most beautiful texts in world religious literature is the Bhagavad Gita. It is rooted in Hinduism. Gita means singing, song, poem. Bhagavan is the supreme Lord. The song of the Blessed One is nothing other than a teaching of man by God. The verses of the Bhagavad Gita are said to have been written under inspiration by the mythical sage Vyasa. In this respect they are not regarded as human words, but as texts of divine revelation. Even if the origin of the text dates back to between 500 B.C. and 300 AD, according to Indian tradition it has a mythical age of thousands of decades.
The Bhagavad Gita shaped the entire Indian religious history and has also left deep traces in other cultures. The Bhagavad Gita is also recognized as an important philosophical work in the West. In India, the verses of the Gita are still learned by heart, commented on in lectures and distributed among the people in comic books. The Bhagavad Gita consists of 700 verses in 18 chapters. It is part of an approximately 100,000 stanzas epic Mahabharata.
For people today, the timeless essence of this profound teaching can become the source of deepest inspiration. The antiphonal song between Krishna and Arjuna can be interpreted as an inner dialogue between the human soul and the inner divinity. This teaching shows the path to overcoming the ego and realizing the true self. Although this teaching through the divine essence has a historical context, it points noticeably beyond the level of human "history" and stories to the timeless truth that has remained immaculate through all centuries and still gives us today in such a beautiful form is available.
