Bhagavad Gita Does Not Preach Miracles And Escapism - Bhagavad Gita Jayanti Special

Bhagavad Gita does not preach miracles and escapism but asks man to wholeheartedly to perform his duty. The whole idea of Gita is asking man to do his duty without fear. It is asking a person to follow Dharma to attain happiness here and hereafter. Why Gita will always be relevant is that because it is teaching universal truth not escapism and miracles. It does not support a group or sect. It is classless and without any religion. All that matters to Gita is the upliftment of all living beings. The singular and surpassing strength of the Gita lies in its comprehensive outlook and understanding of different types of temperaments; of the higher ideals and truths into which all men are not equally awakened and yet into which it is inevitable all have to grow; of the clash of interest and duties devolving upon man in his attempt to maintain a harmonious relation between his own higher interests and ideals on the one hand and the stern realities of life on the other.
