Introduction The Bhagavad-Gita is considered by eastern and western scholars alike to be among the greatest spiritual books the world has ever known. Many great thinkers such as Albert Einstein, Mahatma Ghandi, Aldous Huxley, Henry Thoureau and Aurobindo have contemplated its timeless message. The Bhagavad-Gita is the divine revelation spoken by Lord Krishna and is by far the most popular and well known of all sacred scriptures from ancient India.In a very sublime and wonderful way Lord Krishna describes the science of self-realization and the exact process by which every human being may definitely be able to consciously establish an eternal relationship with God.
The intrinsic beauty of the Bhagavad-Gita is that its knowledge applies to all human beings and does not postulate any sectarian idealogy or secular view.
The primary purpose of the Bhagavad-Gita is to illuminate for all of humanity the ultimate nature of divinity, for the highest spiritual good for everyone in the world.
There are 18 chapters in the Bhagavad-Gita. Each chapter is called a yoga. Yoga is the science of attaining communion with God. So each chapter is a yoga showing how to attain communion with God.
