    The Original Gita

    The Original Gita

    This is the original Gita, the first edition inserted into Jaya. The conversation between Arjuna and Krishna is straightforward, and makes perfect sense. The battle is about to begin and Arjuna the Warrior Prince has lost his nerve. Krishna puts forth arguments directing him to action. This text has few philosophical discussions. Krishna is very precise, in the role of a coach, simply pointing out that it Arjuna is duty bound to fight according to the Warrior Code. He warns him of the infamy he will incur if he flees from the battlefield, and advises him to disassociate his actions from his feelings and focus on the task at hand. Arjuna’s despair is dispelled, he thanks Krishna for his timely advice, and promises to act accordingly. That’s it.
    We will discuss how this conversation was pieced together in the next episode.

    The Vedantists Reform Movement

    The Vedantists Reform Movement

    In this chapter, the Vedantists inserted the Yoga of Analytical Intelligence, using common sense to overcome the letter of the law, of multiple scriptures. That is the core of the chapter. There are preceding verses explaing the concept of Brahman (Spirit) and it’s characteristics of Immortality and Ummutability that emerge from the question of Arjuna’s grief in the firt chapter, as further qualified by the Vedantists in order to give the appearance of continuity. However, barring the remnants of the original conversation that appears once, the emphasis is really on focusing one’s intelligence on Self-realization. The attack on the ritualistic Brahmins is at once direct and non-confrontational. The Vedantists urge the old schoolers to dovetail their practices into self-realization.
