It is extremely pleasing to see that many young men of the country have started taking such keen interest in trying to understand what Geeta is and what religion is. We are not out to throw away our secular outlook in life, and try to turn completely inward to have a total religious contemplative life, but we are trying to understand what India stands for and what Indian culture is, so that we may harmonise in the country our secular activities and material prosperities with our cultural growth and character re-building.
There is nothing wrong with us at this moment. Poverty is one of the incidents in the history of any nation in the world. What we need today is not merely our co-operative strength, not merely our intellectual ability, but we want character and cultural unity in the country. Then alone it will be possible to organize ourselves with determination and see that our country comes forward to command a greater recognition that other nations of the world. The effective co-ordination of efforts and efficient harnessing of the National will cannot be created merely by planning or by legislation. It depends entirely upon the individual improvement in character. Each individual of a nation must develop his inward character without which the national character cannot be developed.
Even when this truth is realized, our national leaders find it difficult to discipline the citizens to regain their moral stature, or rediscover their cultural beauty. Here in Geeta the theory of perfection and the technique of its attainment are given out by a Master of Life, the ancient Seer Vyasa. Lord Krishna propounds this way of Life as an efficient treatment for the Arjuna-disease. We all know how the situation changed when neurotic Arjuna was for once woken up from his stupor to wield his Gandeeva-bow.
Every man is more or less in this typical "Arjuna Condition". Hence our failures in our life; our tears; our pangs. Let us revive and learn to snatch the laurels of victory from her hesitating hands. Geeta is the Charter for Success in Life for every man who is courageous enough to live the Geeta way-of-life. Hinduism at a glance is Geeta.
