Bhagavad Geeta

The Srimad Bhagavad Geeta is the immortal message emanated from the lotus lips of Lord Krishna. The 700 verses in the Geeta is part of the epic Mahabharata.

It is a glorious dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.

“The teachings of the Geeta are universal and eternal and for the welfare of all embracing humanity. The Geeta is the beacon of light for the salvation of mankind which is being swept away by the violent storm of materialism. Scientific and technological advancement alone does not complete one’s evolution. Spiritual awareness and awakening as imparted in the Bhagavad Geeta, elevates one’s perception and guides the devotee to see the existence as one, thereby doing away with social and religious prejudices. Any embodied being who lives in the Divine teachings of the Geeta gives up his mortal self and attains liberation.”

– Swami Hari Har Ji Maharaj
