The Hindu culture has survived many millenniums, unlike many other different cultures which had withered away into chaos over a period of time. This is possible only because our culture has the required elasticity to embrace all the new dimensions into which our society grew, with the march of time. We read in scriptures about the discussions held by the Rishis and their disciples, along river banks and many references are made to mountains, trees, silence and the spirit of retirement of the jungles. Thus Hindu culture was more associated with the hum of River Ganga and the hymn of the snow-peaks. There was a misconception that one should renounce he world and retire into silent contemplation and meditation without fulfilling one’s duty. If this had been followed, our culture would have died away. This is totally against the dynamic spirit of our culture. It is here, that we realise the importance of Gita. It is a practical hand-book of instruction on how best we can organize our ways of thinking, feeling and acting in everyday life. We learn to draw from ourselves productivity to enrich life outside and around us. Gita unfolds a way of life by living which, we can grow to be socially more productive and individually more poised and tranquil, pursuing a peaceful life. Vigorous life expresses itself in problems. When we arrive at a solution, it is no more a problem. We require knowledge to meet life’s challenges around us. With the help of the knowledge, we arrive at a solution and there is no more despair. Arjuna represents the youth who tend to take things and happenings as problems where there are none and feel despair. It is our blessing that Gita is ready and willing to lift the young hearts from a state of confusion. Gita gives us a motherly embrace and helps us solve our problems. It gives us total security, which, we are not sadly aware of. Gita is a ready-made text book which serves us where we are, whoever we may be, whatever be our problem. It serves us irrespective of place, time, caste and creed. Gita indicates in detail, the ways of tuning up our personality all by ourselves. The core of the Gita contains the life-giving technique which can pour fresh vitality into the heart and muscles of the younger generation. The Gita way of life can accomplish the miracle of making man stand up even against odds and come out successful in the end. It teaches us the art of making right contacts with the world outside, since, sadly, the world has only its laws and no mercies ! Gita expounds a science of reconstructing one’s personality. It makes our inner personality whole and strong, gives us a new-found confidence to meet any problem and we feel, certain of success and sure of victory. This is the special charm of the Gita. Love, Chithra.
