Knowledge of Bhagavad Gita

Someone asked, is it true that, once I understand Bhagavad Gita, there will be nothing left in the world to know?

To answer that, once we know Gold, we don’t need to go through each gold ornament to know what they are made of, right.

In the same way, once we know what makes this universe, we don’t need to go through each part of the universe to know it.

And interestingly, what makes us also makes the Universe, so if we find that “I” within us, we will know everything. It is the goal of all of Vedic literature to help us find that “I” inside us, it’s also called as self-realization/moksha.

In this context, Bhagavad Gita, describes hundreds of time tested, and proven paths for achieving that goal. Not only that, it also gives us a small tour of what it is like knowing it.

So, to answer the question, if one could understand the real crux of Bhagavad Gita, it’s true that, there will be nothing left to know.

BTW, Key here is “understanding”, which can take months, years or lifetime(s) for folks like us. So, let’s continue our baby steps towards that ultimate goal. All the Best!
