This series of talks was delivered by Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha ji in Jamshedpur. In his own inimitable and analytical style, Swamiji analyses each verse and connects it to how it can be applied in our interactional life.
Before embarking on the thirteenth chapter, Swamiji gives a brief synopsis of Bhagavad Gita and its eternal relevance to people from all walks of life.
Discussing the exclusive knowledge pursuit (Kevala Jnana Nishtha), Swamiji says that it was not accessible to all. It was restricted to a few dedicated seekers who had one-pointed devotion to this path and the quest. Their minds had withdrawn from the world and would not be distracted by anything in the world.
Swamiji says that Bhagavad Gita is a revolutionary presentation of the same Upanishadic knowledge. Bhagavad Gita brings the same truth to anyone, anywhere in the world, working in any field of activity provided one wants the growth presented and promised in Bhagavad Gita. All activities can be pursued by introducing the attitude of Yoga in the mind. Bhagavad Gita is actually a science and technology of personality development, says Swamiji.
If one adheres to the teachings of Krishna one can discover the truth and function effectively in any field of action without getting affected by ups and downs in life. This can be done by imbibing the virtues enumerated in the Bhagavad Gita and by turning away from worldly attractions and getting anchored to the self, says Swamiji.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
