Bhagavad Gita Chapter IV: Yoga of Renunciation of Action in Wisdom
The Bhagavad Gita ‘Song of the Lord’ is a conversation between Lord Krsna and the warrior prince Arjuna on the battlefield of the Kurukshetra. It provides a practical philosophy which expounds the technique for an active and peaceful life. Above all, it ushers one towards the goal of spiritual Enlightenment.
The chapter begins with divine assurance that the world will be blessed with periodic visitations of enlightened Souls. Such Souls destroy the vicious, protect the virtuous and re-establish righteousness dharma.
Yajna is the ritual of fire worship. Lord Krsna impregnates a new meaning into this ancient ritual to suit the modern context. The exposition of the Twelve Yajnas enables a seeker to convert all worldly transactions into worship. Through consistent practice of the yajnas a seeker frees himself of his vasanas, desires. Gains the knowledge of Self.
A significant inclusion in the chapter is the Qualities of a true spiritual seeker and Guru.
