Srimad Bhagavadgita The Bhagavadgītā contains divine words emanating from the lips of God Himself. Its glory is infinite, unlimited. None can really describe it. Even Seșa, the thousand- headed serpent-god, whose back forms the couch of God Visnu, and Śiva and Ganesa, cannot fully depict this glory. How can a puny mortal expect to do it? The Epics and Purānas etc., have sung the glory of the Gītā at many places; but if all those words of praise are brought together, even then it cannot be declared that the praise of the Gītā has been exhausted. The fact is that a full description of the glory of the Gītā is never possible. For how can a thing which can be fully described remain unlimited? It at once becomes finite and limited.
As a scripture, the Gītā embodies the supreme spiritual mystery and secret. It contains the essence of all the four Vedas. Its style is so simple and elegant that after a little study man can easily follow the structure of its words; but the thought behind those words is so deep and abstruse that even a lifelong, constant study does not show one the end of it. Everyday the book exhibits a new facet to thought, hence the Gītā remains eternally new. And deep reflection with reverence and faith will make it directly appear impregnated with deep meaning at every step.
The virtues, glory, essential character, truth, mystery and worship of God as well as the topics of Action and Knowledge have been discussed in the Gītā in such a way that its parallel can hardly be found in any other book. As a scripture, the Gītā is so incomparable that there is no word in it which is free from some instructive thought. There is not a single word in the Gītā, which may be described as flattering. Whatever statements have been made in it are true to the very letter. Smelling overpraise in the words of God, the very embodiment of Truth, is to show disrespect to the divine words.
