I really thought that this was just a book that I would read and enjoy and move on. But I was wrong.
The first time I knew about The Bhagavad Gita was from Robert Oppenheimer, with his famous mind-boggling Bhagavad Gita quote: "Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." The intensity of these words made me want to read the actual book, it is a 700-verse Hindu scripture, that covers a part from the Hindu epic, Mahabharata.
When you start reading it, it is a simple conversation between a Prince, Arjuna, and a God, Krishna.
While it all boils down to how you actually interpret the ideas in this conversation. It won’t be long before you realize the poetry of the situation, that it isn’t a conversation between a man and a God, it is a conversation between a man and his soul, his soul that is naked from everything in this world.
This is definitely not a book to be read once, this book should fall under the genre “Repeated Reads”. Highly recommended!
