“If we study the Upanishads we notice, in wandering through the mazes of many irrelevant subjects, the sudden introduction of the discussion of a great truth, just as in the midst of a huge wilderness a traveler unexpectedly comes across here and there an exquisitely beautiful rose, with its leaves, thorns, roots, all entangled. Compared with that, the Gita is like these truths beautifully arranged together in their proper places — like a fine garland or a bouquet of the choicest flowers. The Upanishads deal elaborately with Shraddhâ in many places, but hardly mention Bhakti. In the Gita, on the other hand, the subject of Bhakti is not only again and again dealt with, but in it, the innate spirit of Bhakti has attained its culmination.” - Swami Vivekananda
Bhagavad Gita is a practical text and is not just meant to be worshipped or meant for a parrot-like repetition. It deals with the science of the body, mind and spirit. One especially finds beautiful ways to control one’s own mind. Unfortunately our modern youth has no knowledge of the great wisdom contained in this great text. Some think it is a text to be read after one has retired from active life, which is not at all correct.
In order to make aware our children, youth, men and women from the world over who are interested in our great culture and heritage, this Gita Darshanam, a museum of paintings depicting many ideas from the Gita and Upanisads with audio facility also, has been taken up by the Math. Anyone going through this important museum will have the darshan of the essence of the Gita.
