This discourse series, delivered by Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha ji in Jamshedpur, is based on the concluding chapter of Bhagavad Gita. Swamiji deeply analyzes and explains each verse of the chapter and discusses how it can be applied by the seeker in his/her own life.

In this introductory exposition, Swamiji gives a gist of Bhagavad Gita. The sight of his elders and kith and kin arrayed in the war field weakened Arjuna and he sought refuge under Krishna as his disciple, requesting him for guidance in the auspicious path. Hearing Krishna’s instructions, Arjuna gradually attained clarity and stability.

Swamiji explains that Bhagavad Gita is not a philosophy but an application-oriented science and it analyzes the human personality with clarity and precision. After summarizing the 13th, 14th and 17th chapters, Swamiji says that the 18th chapter (Moksha Sannyasa Yoga) is where everything is integrated and fused.

Defining Moksha (liberation), Swamiji says that our mind suffers from many constrictions. When a seeker removes all of them by sincere self-effort, a sense of freedom and fulfillment dawns within. Quoting from Upanishads, he explains that one can be called liberated when the emotional part of his being is fulfilled, all the doubts of the intelligence get dissolved and when one is freed from the sense of doership.
