"The Gita is not merely a book or just a scripture. It is a living voice carrying an eternally indispensable and vital message to mankind. Its verses embody words of wisdom coming from the infinite ocean of knowledge, the Absolute Itself.""The Gita is a source of power and wisdom. It strengthens you when you are weak, and inspires you when you feel dejected and feeble. It teaches you to embrace righteousness and to resist unrighteousness." - Swami Sivananda << More>>
"From a clear
knowledge of the Bhagavad-Gita all the goals of human existence
become fulfilled. Bhagavad-Gita is the manifest quintessence of all
the teachings of the Vedic scriptures." - Adi Sankara
"I owed a magnificent day to the
Bhagavad-Gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire
spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene,
consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age
and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions
which exercise us." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day."- Mahatma Gandhiji<< More Quotes on Bhagvad Gita>>
Lord Sri Dattatreya - "He was a supreme Yogi. Like Dakshinamurti, He was the adi guru, the primal World Teacher. Contemplate His life. Meditate upon Him. Feel His divine presence. Evoke in your mind the sacred memory of Sati Anasuya and Atri Maharshi, the power of chastity, and divine grace in the form of Divinity taking birth at the earnest supplication and prayer of a heart filled with devotion. The earnest prayer of a heart filled with devotion never goes unanswered or unfulfilled. This is what the advent, the avatara of Dattatreya represents or proves.-Swami Chidananda << More>>.
