The Bhagavad Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior 𝘼𝙧𝙟𝙪𝙣𝙖 turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. “𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘭𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘦𝘭𝘥 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬𝘥𝘳𝘰𝘱, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘎𝘪𝘵𝘢’𝘴 𝘴𝘶𝘣𝘫𝘦𝘤𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘳 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯, 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘭𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧-𝘮𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘮𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘸𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘪𝘧 𝘩𝘦 𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘷𝘪𝘤𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴.”
➥ Arjuna’s struggle in the Bhagavad Gita is acutely modern.
