In the Bhagavad Gita we find a symbolic though accurate description of that spiritual path that takes us back to the Source. The narrative is a dialogue between Arjuna, the struggling disciple, and the God Krishna, a symbol of the soul. When a monumental battle is about to begin, a most unusual situation takes place: as tension builds between the two armies, Krishna in the middle of the battlefield, gives Arjuna the most sacred teachings. These teachings become the Bhagavad Gita, or “The Song of the Lord, Krishna”. Its symbolic language is universal, not limited to a certain time or culture. In the ancient Gita, modern aspirants may discover clues to their own path forward today.
