श्रीमद भगवदगीता UNLEASHED

Bhagavad Gita is perhaps the single greatest scripture that is entirely a message from God, spoken directly by him as Lord Krishna to Warrior Arjuna in the form of 700 verses. It is a divine song, hence the name Bhagavad Gita. Many of the verses are replete with philosophy so abstruse for us that it requires none other than the Lord Himself to explain it in a easy to grasp method. So much so, Srimad Bhagavad Gita is now making its way into the motel rooms across USA as Motel Gita.

My cousin Ravi is an avid student of Bhagavad Gita. Under the spiritual guidance of his Guruji, he and his wife Vidya are distributing free copies of this scripture amongst the poor. They also distribute the other holy book Srimad Bhagavatham. For a while now, I actually wished to do a post on Bhagavad Gita as an acknowledgement of his charitable work as well as his abiding interest in it. I now have that blessed opportunity. Hey, if you are like his two inquisitive and intelligent sons Shreyas and Vivek, you would perhaps like to try this Gita Quiz first.

One organization that is so fervently promoting devotion to Lord Krishna is ISKCON. They have a web resource for their publications accessible to devotees called the ISKCON Desire Tree.. The founder of ISKCON, His Holiness Jagathacharya Srila A.C. Bhakti Vedanta Swami Prabhupada, is aptly famous for his widely sold book Bhagavad Gita As It Is.

I have put together some illustrated verses as a slide show and a sample video from the famous Hindi serial Mahabharath (only Bhagavad Gita), for your viewing pleasure:
