“Srimad Bhagavad Gita contains spiritual consciousness which India has cultivated since time unknown. Written in classical Sanskrit language, the verses of Gita seems difficult for the learners of contemporary students. The Bhaktivedanta Gita Academy of ISKCON has designed a correspondence course in simple Bengali and Hindi languages. One can know about the prime teachings of Gita by completing this course. Srila Prabhupada’s interpretation of Gita is named as ‘Srimad Bhagavad Gita As It Is’. The teachings of Gita deserves to be transmitted to the learners of the world without any distortion. This Gita Study Course is designed as by revered Bhaktipurushottam Maharaj in conformity to the vision of the great Vaishnava Acharya A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupda. I have completed this course and got the chance to be acquainted with Sri Krishna Consciousness. Gita teaches us to become a devotee – a servant of God. Gita teaches that all human beings are ‘Atma’ – a part of ‘Param-Atma’. As a ‘servant’ of God our duty is to surrender unto Param-Atma. This is the spirituality, the Sanatan Darshan which Gita tries to transmit. Gita contains the essence of Veda, Shastra and all the Purana. To me, Gita provides the nectar of transcendental spirituality. Anybody irrespective of Hindu-Muslim-Christian can join the course and obtain the transcendental bliss.”
