Janmashtami 2022: 11 Inspirational Quotes By Lord Krishna

The Bhagavad Gita effectively synthesizes the Hindu traditional ideas about Dharma, Bhakti and Moksha. This scripture opens your eyes to a new way of living and helps you to master the art of living. The tenets mentioned here, are now being taught at universities of the west where the text is being seen as the ultimate manual for self-management. Go ahead and take a glimpse into all the slokas.

The sacred text is a long conversation between Lord Krishna and the distraught Arjuna that begins with a whimper and ends in the triumph of Arjuna in the battle. When the Pandava scion, Arjuna loses his morale to battle with his own kith and kin and discusses it with Lord Krishna who had assumed the role of his charioteer for the warfare, Krishna preaches to him about the importance and need of duty, action, and renunciation.
The verses in Gita have centred around three major themes, knowledge, action, and love.

It advocates three types of yoga- Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnana Yoga. Arjuna, at the end of the advice by Krishna, concludes that all acts should be performed in God's remembrances.
