भगवद्गीता bhagavad gītā ´ The Bhagavad Gita is an early epic poem that recounts the conversation between Arjuna the warrior and his charioteer Krishna the manifestation of God In the moments before a great battle the dialogue s Hey how pretentious am I I just gave a four star review to a fucking holy text And now I'm going to review it And I will swear in my review I'm just asking for it aren't IWhen comparing this one to the other holy books I've read andor skimmed I found this one uite insightful As a professed athiest this one probably speaks to me the most The Bhagavad Gita is actually a section of the Mahabharata which is to simplify because that's all I have researched enough to do the story of a war During this war one of the characters is visited by god Hilarity ensues Just kidding Actually he has a conversation with god and god drops some deep shit on him There's some delicious irony about this conversation taking place on a battlefield after much death and before some of it But where would someone need to speak to god Anyway I consider myself a little tiny bit spiritual and the wisdom in this book can be translated into athiestic terms And it didn't seem self contradictory When it comes to holy writ these are things I like But as it is a brief text you come out of it knowing only slightly about Hinduism than you knew before In comparison I felt after reading Chuang Xi or however we're spelling his name these days that I had a pretty damn good understanding of Taoism After reading this one I have only the vaguest of understandings of Hinduism But it isn't really about the religious tradition as much as it's about gleaning little bits of insight into the human condition In that context it is a very good readYes I'm calling them characters Sue me I'm not a Hindu reader ç भगवद्गीता bhagavad gītā ☆ Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa

Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa ☆ भगवद्गीता bhagavad gītā mobi Ets out the important lessons Arjuna must learn to change the outcome of the war he is to fight and culminates in Krishna revealing to the warrior his true cosmic form counselling him to search for the I read the Bhagavad Gita with the same mixture of moral unease and as it were anthropological delight that all great religious books excite in me I find it so fascinating to gain these direct insights into how our species has for millennia grappled with the same uestions of existential purpose and ethic responsibility; but the answers put forward by most pre modern societies were though beautiful astounding and imaginative also often cruel and inflexible and governed by values that now seem completely alien Most of all of course they are fundamentally authoritarian and if the word ‘fascistic’ were not so inflammatory I might use thatCulturally religious texts really benefit from their longevity Much as I object to a lot of Biblical content the cadences of Tyndale and the Authorized Version are a part of my linguistic DNA; Bible translations are prime among the literary masterpieces of the language I've inherited If you speak an Indic language then the same may be true for you of the Bhagavad Gita in which case I can only apologise for the crass analysis that is about to follow which is based on my completely uninformed encounter with Juan Mascaró's 1962 translationSo the thing is on the face of it the story of the Bhagavad Gita is really uite unpleasant We join the action in medias res the poem is just one small part of the vast Mahabharata and Prince Arjuna is surveying the battlefield ahead of what promises to be a bloody clash against an enemy force made up of his own family members and beloved friends He asks advice from the god Krishna and over several philosophical verses the two of them have what amounts to the following conversationARJUNA I really don't want to do thisKRISHNA You mustARJUNA But if we go ahead with this battle loads of people will die on both sides It all just seems so pointless These men are my friends my teachers my relatives Wouldn't it be better if we just called it all offKRISHNA Don't be so selfish It is your duty to kill them whether you feel happy about it or notARJUNA It justit feels really wrongKRISHNA Look at it this way all these people are going to die anyway ‘I am all powerful Time which destroys all things and I have come here to slay these men Even if thou dost not fight all the warriors facing thee shall die’ So it might as well be now; what's another twenty or thirty years to a godARJUNA Well nothing probably but I expect it means uite a lot to themKRISHNA The highest moral precept of all is to do your duty So do itARJUNA Oh my godthis is horrible kills everyoneNow this is presented primarily as a handbook for overcoming internal tensions – a lesson on how to deal with crippling doubt and indecision And much of it is indeed uite moving and thought provoking; but I just found the context chilling I was completely on Arjuna's side I didn't want him to be won over by Krishna's arguments and part of me kept fantasising about a humanist rewrite where Arjuna told Krishna to get stuffed and the Kurukshetra War never happenedSetting the plot aside of course there is a huge amount of rewarding meditation here on how people should think and behave in order to achieve some measure of calm in their lives especially when they know they have to go through with something unpleasant A lot of this can still be read with profit now – and this focus on how to deal with things mentally seems very unusual to me After all every religion stresses the importance of submission to a deity but I can't think of comparable passages from other faiths which offer so much guidance on for want of a better term the mental health implications of this for believers So it really is a very interesting text despite how off putting I found the initial set upThere is also a lot of uite beautiful poetry here which makes me very curious to read some other parts of the Mahabharata I particularly loved Krishna's long riff on his own glory and omnipresence which runs through flora fauna vocabulary geography and much besidesI am the cleverness in the gambler's dice I am the beauty in all things beautiful I am the victory and the struggle for victory I am the goodness of those who are goodYes but unfortunately also – as with all religions – the badness of those who are bad
