THE TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE
Our scriptures state that the offering of spiritual
wisdom is superior to any material offering.
The Bhagavad Gita, the eternal spritual wisdom of India, is brought to you from the esteemed House of Nightingale for the first time in all its splendor as an art edition. The philosophies and insights of the Bhagavad Gita transcend all religions and reach out to humanity as a whole by virtue of their sheer relevance at all times. It is regarded as the world’s most ancient sacred scripture available to mankind from time immemorial.
In the Gita verses 1 & 2 of chapter 4 the Lord himself has declared that “”I taught this Imperishable science of Yoga to Vivasvan, the Sun God, who taught it to his son Manu; and King Manu in turn taught it to his son Ikshvaku. Thus, the royal sages received this knowledge that was handed down to them in continuous succession. But with the passage of time, this knowledge has been lost to the world””. It was reinitiated to Arjuna 5140 years back. Based on modern scientific calculations supported by the ancient scriptures it can be authentically said that the Bhagavad Gita was spoken by the Lord to Vivasvan (Sun God) 1 billion, 971 million, 828 thousand 568 earthly years ago.
There were innumerable editions of Bhagavad Gita with commentaries of various scholars. Each represents a particular school of thought. In this marvellous edition we have just presented the translation alone for all slokas as represented by the various Schools of thoughts in which the major ones include *Advaita, *Visishtadvaita and *Dvaita.
