    Bhagavad Gita Chapter VIII: Yoga of Imperishable Brahman

    The Bhagavad Gita ‘Song of the Lord’ is a conversation between Lord Krsna and the warrior prince Arjuna on the battlefield of the Kurukshetra. It provides a practical philosophy which expounds the technique for an active and peaceful life. Above all, it ushers one towards the goal of spiritual Enlightenment.

    The deluded seek finite fruits in this world. The wise seek and attain the supreme Reality through ever-steadfast yoga and meditation. Krsna explains the Reality to be the imperishable Brahman beyond the manifest and unmanifest world.

    The chapter also describes the Paths of the Sun and the Moon. The Path of Sun takes the seeker to a heavenly sojourn whence he proceeds to Brahman. The Path of Moon takes one to heavenly pleasures only to return to the terrestrial world. But the determined yogi pursuing yoga and meditation directly reaches Brahman.
