|Also the Gita aims
at producing a type of character which is the loftiest that the Hindu imagination has
conceived. For the ideal Yogin that it describes is like the Avatar Himself, both a man of
contemplation and a man of action-a practical mystic whose head is in solitude, but
whose hands are in society. A mystic whose head is in solitude, but whose hands are in
society. ' His action proceeds out of his contemplation, and his contemplation is rooted
in his love of God.
In as much as the
Bhagavad Gita gives us guidance on all points of spiritual life karma, bhakti, Dhyana and
Jnana-and as its message is addressed to all men without any distinction, it is considered
a universal gospel. It is undoubtedly, one of the greatest scriptures of the world.
