Is life a doomed journey from a station called birth to a station called death with a bit of pleasure and a lot of pain sprinkled between? Though we rarely think of life in such stark terms, isn’t that its unvarnished reality? No, it isn’t. Life has a higher, richer, sweeter dimension – a spiritual dimension – that we frequently overlook amidst the horse-race pace of our current civilization.
The Vedic (Indian) wisdom-tradition has provided some of the loftiest philosophical insights in the world, yet most contemporary people – both Indians and non-Indians – find it difficult to see the relevance of those insights to their daily lives and contexts. This difficulty is caused not by the irrelevance of those insights, but by their inaccessibility: they are generally written in Sanskrit, often using words that have multiple meanings embedded in them. Moreover, they frequently presume familiarity with the subtle nuances of the thought systems within which they developed. Making the totality of Vedic thought accessible to the modern mind requires comprehensive research and exhaustive writing, a massive task upon which many scholars worldwide are working vigorously. Even if this thought becomes accessible, not many people have the time – or, more importantly, the interest – to access this giant body of wisdom. Gita-Daily makes the humble attempt to stimulate interest in Vedic thought by mining and bringing forth small nuggets of wisdom that the contemporary mind finds accessible, relevant and illuminating.
