What is the essence of Bhagavad Gita?

  1. Who am I?

Answer: You are not the material body and mind you generally identify with. You are the eternal spirit soul (ātma), an eternal servant and part of the Supreme Lord, Krishna.

  1. Why am I here?

Answer: You are in this material world due to the accumulated karma from your past lives. You are experiencing the results of your actions, and your present choices will determine your future experiences.

  1. What should I do moving forward?

Answer: Take control of your life and start by surrendering your actions to Krishna. Begin the sadhana of pure devotional service, focusing on the practice of chanting the names of Krishna. The Hare Krishna Maha Mantra is a powerful and effective method for connecting with the divine:

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna,

Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare,

Hare Rama, Hare Rama,

Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

By engaging in such a spiritual practice, you will cultivate virtues like non-violence, friendliness, compassion, generosity, and equanimity. This will help you treat everyone equally, without discrimination or prejudice. Remember, suffering is due to craving and attachment, so letting go of these will bring happiness and peace to your life.

Surrender to Krishna and embark on the journey of spiritual growth through the study of the Bhagavad Gita and the practice of Bhakti Yoga.
