Best Gift

December is a great month for gift giving. May I recommend a gift of a book – Bhagavad Gita As It Is by His Divine Grace, AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. It’s not just a book, but a classic dialogue, classic, meaning ‘for all times’. It is a communication between the soul and God, and how the soul feels weak at times and needs encouragement from God.

God (Krishna) speaks directly to the soul (Arjuna) about responsibility (dharma),and how eventually liberation (nirvana, moksha), or a freedom from ongoing troubles, can be achieved. Ultimately the message is about surrender. Surrender is equated to love. It refers to the ultimate sacrifice, to let go, let God.

The soul sacrifices because essentially it belongs to God whose disposition is the Supreme Soul. In fact, all souls belong to the One Supreme Soul. Once the souls reach that sublime destination, there is full satisfaction. It is hoped that all souls will reach this ultimate position, a position of devotional service. Service (seva) is what the soul’s function, in essence is; it is always joyfully executed.

That’s why the dialogue of the Gita is relevant and worth the time. It is the gift of wisdom.

May the Source be with you!
