How Bhagavad Gita Helps To Get Freedom !

The Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Sri Krishna, the Divinity Incarnate, and Arjuna, the representative of mankind. Though Arjuna was eager to fight in the battle, when he saw that he had to fight with his dear ones, he became nervous and began arguing against war. Finally Arjuna confessed to Sri Krishna his weakness and lack of mental preparedness. Thus begins the dialogue and the Gita is the result. Not only does Sri Krishna counsel and encourage Arjuna to fight the righteous war, he also outlines, through his Gita-discourse, a whole philosophy of life—dealing with work ethics, education, service, stress, charity and so on, and how to reach ultimate freedom.
