Gita values

Thousands of years ago two friends, Krishna, the Supreme Lord, and Prince Arjuna,
discussed life’s most relevant questions. The setting was a battlefield, the issues were urgent,
and the resulting text, the Bhagavad-gita, The Song of God, has become an important
contribution to the philosophical and spiritual literature of the world. Below are six values
from that text that help form the basis of Krishna’s advice to Arjuna. We can use them to
better our vision, our deeds, and our character.These Gita values are governed by bhakti, a
word that literally means ‘sharing’. Bhakti describes a relationship of devotional service to
the Supreme—a relationship of love. The Gita values can help us discern our relationship
with the Supreme, and thus with all living beings, and the environment in which we live.
