The Spirituality Quest: Soul, Karma and Reincarnation
Welcome to “The Spirituality Quest”. Its actually amazing you’re here! As the saying goes….
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
Now that you’ve taken the first step, let’s look at first things first.
This journey is based around understanding the Bhagavad Gita, one of the most renowned books of spiritual wisdom of all time, and the source of all yoga texts and eastern philosophy. Written over 5000 years ago, and read by famous philosophers like Socrates, Emerson, Thoreau, Huxley and Einstein over the centuries, the Bhagavad Gita gives one deep insights about one’s own identity that can do wonders in the way we see things and behave. Here are a few quotes on how these famous personalities appreciated the Bhagavad Gita
In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita, since whose composition years of the gods have elapsed, and in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial – Henry David Thoreau
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.” – Aldous Huxley
