There is no individual, institution or creed in the publication of Gita. Only this fact proves that the Gita was also liked by scholars of other creeds and translated into their respective languages ​​and published with their commentaries. The background of Gita is related to the war environment of Mahabharata, when the armies of Kauravas and Pandavas stood face to face. The bugle of war was over. Arguing that weapon, Arjuna, in that fragile and struggling environment, told his friend, philosopher and guide Sri Krishna, "I don't want to fight, how do I attack my relatives?" Yogiraj, while giving guidance on such a serious, but hypersensitive question The teachings that Shri Krishna gave to Arjuna are contained in the 23rd chapter to the 40th chapter of the Mahabharata, which would later become known as the Gita Siddhanta. Became famous Arjuna's question could also be answered in ordinary language, but Shri Krishna tried to establish the path of human values ​​by explaining to Arjuna the answer to many deep questions of human life. These were the deep questions, "What is the nature of the soul?" What is the purpose and mission of this human life on the eternal journey of the soul? How can a human being practice doing all the duty and how to remain unaffected by its fruits? Should a person consider his right to this life journey or dedicate himself to the God who created the whole world? '

In response to these four esoteric questions, Shri Krishna respectively tried to explain Arjuna in this way a great Vedic principle. The soul is neither born nor dies. It is just like God is not born, nor dies. If a person remembers this basic nature of the soul at all times, then no matter what the present-day Kali Yuga is, no fear can persecute the person. This was the path of karma, in which a person always gets inspiration to fight against injustice by remaining fearless. In this struggle, a person was told to work selflessly and to be easy and beneficial. A person who works selflessly has more concentration than a selfish person. The selfish person keeps worrying about whether or not to get fruits at every step and his or her concentration on this work is bound to be reduced somewhere or the other. On this endless journey of the soul, he receives many lives and bodies. After coming to the human body after traveling 84 lakh yonies, the main aim of the soul should be to maintain constant contact with God. This is the path of devotion.

The path of karma and bhakti together is the best path of knowledge. To say so, Srimad Bhagavadgita establishes the principle of selfless karma. But scholars have also considered this principle to be a pithy principle of Vedas, philosophy and Upanishads. Mahatma Gandhi has even said that the Gita principle is the solution to all problems related to human life. It is also a pithy expression of all religions. It addresses every type of person - whether he is a great saint or a great sinner, selfish or selfless. Today, this is the only book that can be a perfect cure for all types of mental illnesses.
