Two aspect of this text overwhelmed me. There are so many foreign words and names sprinkled throughout the book. It made it hard for me to keep track of the different characters. Secondly, there is so much in this book! It would require several read-throughs for me to feel like I was starting to wrap my head around it. That said, I did find it a worthwhile read. Contemplation of this book led to a session of yoga and meditation, which transformed into prayer.
Having prepared my mind and body through yoga and meditation, I found my prayer much more powerful and meaningful than often is the case. I also found comfort in the main conflict of the Bhagavadgita. The protagonist, Arjuna, is leading his people into battle.
Many in the opposing army are friends and family members of Arjuna, and his heart fails at the thought of killing his kinsmen. He throws down his bow in disgust. Krshna then teaches Arjuna and shows him that we all have a purpose and a calling. His purpose in that moment is to fight. In the end, Arjuna realizes that he must fight and he does so with great honor and respect for others, himself, and consequently for god. His actions inspire all on the battlefield.
I had to make hard decisions, but in the end they were the right decisions, and I was able to find peace in that.
I look forward to my next class for the opportunity we will have to discuss some of the difficult and important questions that this book identifies. I cant imagine a better book to get a nice blend of what Hinduism means. Wonderful read.
