Bhagavad Gita: Eternal Wisdom of Life and Life Skills by Dr Sunanda Rathi

Do you know what the crucial moment in Mahabharata was? It was the moment when, in the Kurukshetra war, Arjuna saw his closed ones on the other side as his foes. As he eliminates the people who shared blood relations with him and played paramount roles in his life. Arjuna was in the moral dilemma of how to fight against his people. Lord Krishna recounted different lessons and philosophies to Arjuna during the Kurukshetra war. It was the time when the tables turned.

The epic saga of the valuable interaction between Lord Krishna and Arjuna has now become a worldwide phenomenon and known as the Bhagavad Gita.

The Bhagavad Gita is a 700-verse Hindu scripture and a crucial part of the epic Mahabharata. But are these the only facts that make the Bhagavad Gita great? The Bhagavad Gita is not just a motivational speech a motivator gave to his lost pupil. It’s the essence of life cleverly outlined and applicable to any and everyone.

The lessons and philosophies in the Bhagavad Gita not just encouraged Arjuna to do the right thing, but they also touch various aspects of daily life in today’s time.

They shed light on everyday problems and offer solutions for them as well. The Kurukshetra war was not just between the Kauravas and Pandavas. It was a Dharma Yuddha, a Righteous war fought between right and wrong, good and bad, ethical and unethical. It is something that we all struggle to figure out at some point in our life.

We all are modern Arjunas fighting modern problems. We fight a war of life every day. Yes, it is a war.

Everyone’s war is different and has different intensity. And the Bhagavad Gita gives us lessons on how to fight and win everyday battles. In our current era, we call these lessons- Life Skills.

Right now, we are fighting an even bigger enemy- a Pandemic. Not just the COVID-19 virus, but the whole lockdown thing is taking a toll on us. The frustration, depression, stress, tensions, disagreements, emotional fluctuations, and many other negative feelings are growing day by day and making people suffer physically and mentally. These are not the problems that have popped up out of the blue. They were always part of our life. But in current scenarios, the degree of their existence is senselessly increasing.

To tackle these problems, we need an enhanced degree of Life Skills. And the Bhagavad Gita extends its sagacity to help us in these times. The Bhagavad Gita is not just a fancy buzzword that revolves only around some Sanskrit Shlokas. It is the ultimate astuteness bestowed upon mankind to realize the truthful nature of divinity and accustom it to our daily lives.

Though the teachings drafted in the Gita date back to ancient times, miraculously, they are applied to every era. The Bhagavad Gita is the eternal wisdom of life. What Gita offers is not easily understood by everyone.
