Bhagawad Gita is as secular as Yoga

I wish one day the minorities in India accept it. Every educated Indian or for that matter every educated person world over must try to read, understand and practise the clear prescriptions for self improvement provided in plenty in Bhagawad Gita. For integrating the country, every educated Indian must keep a book in their home and go through whenever, they find it fit. However, I suggest the younger generation to accept it as a guide for better peaceful life. With the availability of the book in every language and for all in different fields of activities such as a manager or a student, it is so much easy.

Gandhi wrote,”When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day”.

Interestingly, Bhagawad Gita starts with the first word ‘dharma’ in the first Sloka of chapter 1 and ends with the word ‘mum’ as the last word in the last sloka of the last chapter 18, making together ‘mum dharma’(my dharma).Gita has 700 (701) Slokas. For the benefits of those who intend to read, understand and practise Gita, I may suggest that they should not be afraid of the total number of Slokas.They can focus on Chapter 2 and Chapter 18 that provide very simple summary of the whole of Bhagawad Gita.I have tried to select some Slokas from different chapters for myself that provide me with all the qualities that as a good human being I must try to imbibe in me and practise in living. I keep on writing about that. A collection of the same will certainly be helpful in building a rational personality for successful life.
