How important and relevant is the message of the bhagavad Gita today? We might as well ask question:"how important and relevant is the sun today! Or the air? Or the water? Or all the elements of nature?" In other words, the term 'relevance today' in the context of the Gita redundant and rather bemusing.
Having said this, we should also confess that like the importance of air-water-earth-and all-else, the message of Gita also needs to be restated again and again, until we are able to live our lives according to it.

“When hundreds of empty boats float in a lake, neither the boats nor the lake has a problem. Only an occupied boat needs to be navigated. When hundreds of thoughts float in the consciousness ,neither thoughts nor consciousness has problem. Only an occupied thought poses a problem to the boatman-the ‘thinker,’ because while navigating the movements, the beauty of the still waters is lost!”
