Description: Bhagavad-Gita (Hinduism).

The Bhagavad-Gita is one of the spiritual heritages of humanity; million Hindus read the Bhagavad-Gita every day. The basic knowledge of the Bhagavad-Gita will help us to better appreciate the ethical principles of Hinduism.

An excellent way to know Hinduism is through the Bhagavad-Gita, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful sacred poems in the history of humanity. For this analysis of the Bhagavad-Gita; we have chosen “The Bhagavad-Gita According to Gandhi” (The Gospel of Selfless Action) with commentaries of Gandhi on the Bhagavad-Gita.

The Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord), or “Shrimad Bhagavad-Gita Upanishad,” is a part of the Mahabharata and one of the most popular sacred texts of Hinduism. The Bhagavad-Gita is considered a spiritual revelation was given by Krishna.

For the Mahatma Gandhi, the fundamental teaching of the Bhagavad-Gita is the detachment, the abandonment of the fruits of the action.

“Keeping all of your senses in complete control, watching everything impartially, delighting in the welfare of others, certainly; they come to Me.” Bhagavad-Gita XII,4

“Consider equal pleasure and pain, gain or loss, victory or defeat, and get ready for the fight: proceeding thus you do not commit sin.” II-38

The Bhagavad-Gita is the culmination of the earlier Vedas (Brahmins, Vedanta Sutras, Upanishads, and Shrimad Bahagavatam).

Gandhi, in his introduction to the book, in the “Message of the Bhagavad-Gita” (Anaasakthi Yoga) explains the two fundamental concepts of Hinduism:

  1. Truthfulness
  2. Non-Violence (Ahimsa)

Ahimsa (Non-Violence) and International Business

Gandhi was an example of a life based on the Non-Violence - Ahimsa.

Philanthropy and Hinduism

According to Gandhi:

“The Bhagavad-Gita shows how the true knowledge must be manifested in acts of selfless service.”

We can observe the importance of philanthropy, which as we will see in the Case Studies of Hindus Businessman will be common to all of them; they all have a sense of giving back to society part of what they have earned.

Ahimsa (Non-Violence) and International Business

The teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita have had an influence on the West: Arthur Schopenhauer, Richard Wagner, Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Mann, Carl Jung, TS Elliot, and Leon Tolstoy. Julia Roberts, the guitarist John McLaughlin or the Beatle George Harrison converts to Hinduism.

“In the morning I wash my intelligence in the breathtaking and the cosmogonal thinking of the Bhagavad-Gita.” Henry David Thoreau

The Sermon on the Mount (Christianity) has influenced in Mahatma Gandhi:

“When I read the New Testament and the Sermon on the Mount, I began to understand the teachings of Christianity...
With the Sermon on the Mount, I fell in love of Jesus” Mahatma Gandhi

“Mahatma Gandhi incarnates in his life certain universal principles that are inherent in the moral structure of the universe, and these principles are as ineluctable as the law of gravity.” Martin Luther King

Sri Ramakrishna was one of the major reformers of Hinduism in the 19th century.
