~ Henry David Thoreau (American Historian, Critic and Philosopher):
"In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seems puny and trivial."
"Most books belong to the house and streets only...But this (Bhagavad Gita) . . addresses what is deepest and most abiding in man. . . . Its truth speaks freshly to our experience.. the sentences are filled with depth and serenity and I am sure they will have a place and significance as long as there is a sky to test them by."
"One sentence of the Bhagavad Gita, is worth the State of Massachusetts many times over."
~Albert Einstein: "When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous."
~Aldous Huxley: "The Bhagavad-Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity."
Tina ૐ Sadhwani "I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. 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 (Philosopher)
Maxim Garg The juxtaposition of Western civilization's most terrifying scientific achievement with the most dazzling description of the mystical experience given to us by the Bhagavad Gita, India's greatest literary monument. - robert oppenheimer
Gurushankar Swaminathan Every Muslim household has a Quran, every Xtian household has a Bible but how many Hindu homes have a Bhagavad Gita? You will find a bunch of books on slokas & prayers & methods of rituals for festivals but NO Bhagavad Gita. Let us all do out 2 cents in our families & communities to change this.
Charu Arora Srivastava My favorite verse is the one where Krshna explains how things come into being even though I don't entirely get it. I also like the one where he says a wise man can drink from anywhere. There are so many good ones though that it is hard to pick one. Bhagavad Gita is rich with knowledge for those who are ready to receive.
