In Praise of The Gita
|“When I read the Bhagavad-gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”~ Albert Einstein
|“The Bhagavad-gita has a profound influence on the spirit of mankind by its devotion to God which is manifested by actions.”~ Dr. Albert Schweitzer
|“The Bhagavad-gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity.”~ Aldous Huxley
|“When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.”~ Mahatma Gandhi
|“I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-gita. It was the first of books’ it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another rage and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
