Geeta Jayanti 2021: There is a unique light of knowledge in each verse of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita. The uniqueness of this best code of conduct for human life is that this message of peace has been given from the field of war. In this scripture, which saves the ignorant man from deviating by suggesting the path of self-welfare, there is an honest discussion of knowledge, devotion, and action for the benefit of world human beings, not of any particular sect.
In this, the way for the welfare of mankind has been paved by psychologically intertwining many seemingly contradictory beliefs. This is why this work has got global recognition as a beautiful treatise of human management. The Gita emphasizes three means to convert ordinary Karmaism into Karmayoga-
Renunciation of desire for fruit, freedom from the ego of doership, and surrender to God.
The essence of Vedas and Upanishads is reflected in these sutras. Tatvdarshi mystics say that as many times as this unique Triveni of knowledge, devotion, and action is read, new secrets of its understanding are opened up.
