We will try to understand this sublime text through a series of six sessions. In the first session we will discuss the importance of Bhagavad Gita ,the spirit behind it and requirements for understanding Bhagavad Gita.

Its teachings do not belong to any cult, sect, creed, particular age, place or country. They are meant for the people of the whole world at large. The whole world is a big battle-field.

It has a message for the solace, peace, freedom, salvation and perfection of all human beings.
