Swamiji in this session discusses the fundamental philosophy and the unique features of Bhagavad Gita.

The Upanishads were available for very few people who were not interested in worldly life but were given to exclusive dedication to the Knowledge. The gospel of Gita is a revolutionary presentation based on the Upanishadic teachings. It synchronizes worldly life with the practical application of Self-knowledge. It points out that it is not the world that agitates us but it is our defective perception and attitude (raga-dvesha) that makes us miserable.

Swamiji explains that Bhagavad Gita helps us understand that we are born with an insufficiency and every moment we strive to be fulfilled and happy. Our desire for objects is endless and we fail to understand that fleeting objects can never give us permanent joy. This delusion makes us take up work which leads to bondage. Swamiji points out that we can get rid of this feeling of insufficiency when we discover the source of happiness within us.

Unearthing other nuggets of wisdom from Bhagavad Gita, Swamiji says that divinizing all our activities and evenness of mind are the fundamental teachings of this text. A seeker demonstrates universal love and unaffectedness in his interactions, when he realizes the Self.
