    Dear Priya,
    Thankyou very much for your feedback.
    You gain a lot by starting the habit of reading atleast a few Gita shlokas everyday !
    Next week, may be a Vedanta introduction topic !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Gita is universal only if everyone can understand it... Mrs.C., with you around explaining everything & making it sound so simple, it definitely is universally understood. :)

    Dear Lavanya,
    Thankyou very much.
    The Gita is a personal treatise as well as a universal code.
    Determination to understand is the first step !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear chith,
    All your posts show the hard work you put in but thosen Gita are endearing. I love the simple way you explain the simple teachings of this most popular teaching.I am particularly moved by the lines-He finds that his mental weakness, exhaustion and fatigue reduce and his mind becomes calm and serene. When the mind is thus calm and serene, his efficiency increases; his performance, his attitude towards others, his vision of life as such, the way he meets challenges – all these acquire a new tempo and beauty. With these inner qualities, his activities gather a momentum that cannot but attract success in the modern material world.

    Thank you,
    Regards,
    Meenu

    Dear Meenu,
    It does require hard work to "make" the Gita, look simple ! But I enjoy & perhaps that shows in what I write ! Thankyou for the detailed analysis.
    Love,
    Chith.
