Bhagavad Gita is one of the oldest Hindu scriptures that tells a lot about humanity and how to live adhering all basic rules of humanity. The holy book also teaches about peace and prosperity. Imagine a world where everyone could live with no fear and everywhere peace prevails. That’s what the true message behind Lord Krishna’s speech in Bhagavad Gita. When Arjuna the great warrior of his time got into trouble and had no idea what to do to fight against his own brothers and other relatives, Krishna taught him a good lesson that you can find in Bhagavad Gita.
Recently a brave little Muslim girl of 12 years old namely Mariyan Asif Siddiqui won the first prize in Bhagavad Gita Contest held in Mumbai. Though she has no link to Hinduism and her parents follow Islam, she showed her zeal to learn about other religious scriptures as well. That made her read about Bhagavad Gita and she became a good human being after reading it. This is not a single transformation in an individual’s life but it also proves that if more people from other religious groups show keenness to read about Bhagavad Gita, their life will also get meanings to live. They will become better humans and treat everybody equally. Here I do not want to discriminate other religious scriptures but just want to say that all religious scriptures include same words but in different manner.
How Bhagavad Gita Can Make Changes In The Life of Christians and Muslims?
Liberal, modest and broad-minded people can be found in every society. This gives more chances to debate on various topics and also let us express in our own ways. I hope intellectual people from Christian and Muslim societies would love to learn good points from Bhagavad Gita. Every religious book has something to teach humanity. Scriptures are not made for any particular group of people but for the entire humanity. And it’s very important to learn positive points from each other and avoid negative ones to make this world a better place to breathe.
Bhagavad Gita teaches so many good things that should not be missed out by Christians and Muslims. Although there is no harm to stick with one religious texts, it is also a good idea to explore some ancient scriptures like Bhagavad Gita that consist of something unique to say about human approach toward life. Do try to read Bhagavad Gita once and you will find its worth and then you will surely follow its mentioned teachings in your life and live a happy and peaceful life.
