In this Picture,Warrior Arjuna is seen listening teachings of Lord Krishna in the battle field of Kurukshetra to clear many misgivings that he had in his mind before he could particiate in the war fought by Karavas with Pandavas.One should ...not forget that the direct audience to Lord Krishna’s discourse of the Bhagavad Gita included Warrior Arjuna (addressee), Sanjay using divine vision gifted by the sage Veda Vyasa to watch the war and narrate the events to Dhritarashtra. Lord Hanuman perched atop Arjuna’s chariot and Barbarika, son of Ghatotkacha, who also witnessed the complete eighteen days of action at Kurukshetra.The context of the Bhagvad Gita comprises of a conversation between Lord Krishna and the Pandava prince Arjuna taking place on the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra War. Responding to Warrior Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma about fighting his own cousins, Lord Krishna explained to Warrior Arjuna about his duties as a warrior and prince, and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies. This has led to the Bhagvad Gita often being described as a concise guide to Hindu theology and also as a practical, self-contained guide to life. During the discourse, Lord Krishna had revealed His identity as the Supreme Being Himself blessing Warrior Arjuna with an awe-inspiring vision of His divine universal form.The Bhagavad Gita is also called Gītopaniṣad, implying its having the status of an Upanishad that is . a Vedantic scripture. Since the Gita is drawn from the Mahabharata, it is classified as a Smṛiti text ( revealed text). However, those branches of Hinduism that give it the status of an Upanishad also consider it a revealed text. As is taken to represent a summary of the Upanishadic teachings, it is also known as the Upanishad of the Upanishads. It is also called the Scripture of Liberation.Let us join to chant it every day and follow its teaching in our daily life to attain blissful life and salvation!
