“No one, even for the twinkling of an eye, ever exists without performing action.”
—Winthrop Sargeant, The Bhagavad Gita (3:5)

The message of the Bhagavad Gita is really four messages combined, each charting a pathway from relentless activity to peace of mind. Perhaps there is no other scripture that portrays the journey to enlightenment with such variety and human richness. Clear, practical, and framed with universal appeal, the dialogue exchanged in the Gita opens the way to spiritual self-discovery.
