Bhagavad-gita (aka Gitopanisad)

[Some (ongoing) extracts from the Bhagavad-gita which looks to be a manual of Krishna consciousness which is the same as Christ consciousness. See: Levels of consciousness]


"Bhagavad-gita is also known as Gitopanisad.  It is the essence of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upanisads in Vedic literature."---Swami Prabhupada

"In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial."---Henry David Thoreau

"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 age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us."---Ralph Waldo Emerson

"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 the 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."---Mohandas K. Gandhi
