    The teachings of The Bhagavadgita have gained appreciation not only in India but beyond its borders. It embodies the supreme spiritual mystery and secret. Its style is simple and elegant but thoughts contained in it are impregnated with deep meaning. The quintessential message of it is so powerful and enduring that it is not very difficult to find people who live in the ambience of the Gita. Virtually it is an epitome of all the scriptures. Its manifestations about indestructibility of soul (self), desirability of desireless action, paths of liberation, self-realization, true character of truth, various facets of God and spirituality, tranquility of mind and equanimity make it a store house of all scriptural knowledge.
