Bhagavad Gita Chapter VII: Yoga of Knowledge & 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.
Krsna describes Brahman, God as being the unmanifest Reality and also the manifest world. The ‘vicious’ do not know or seek God. Deluded of the Reality they pursue and attain finite fruits in the world.
The ‘virtuous’ seek God. They fall under four categories. However only the jnani, wise among them is the real seeker. The other three merely satisfy their personal ends. They pursue God either to gain material wealth or find mental solace or appease their intellectual curiosity. The jnani stands out with his self-oblivious, non-utilitarian worship culminating in Self-realisation. He alone attains the state of Brahman.
