STILL LIFE: Bhagwat Gita in all it's splendour

There can not be as better day than the auspicious day of Krishna's Birth - Janamashtami, to talk about the universally renowned jewel of India's Spiritual wisdom in all its splendour as an Art Edition brought out by Nightingale. As my friend T Suresh has been singing praises of this edition, displayed at Odyssey, at Chennai; I planned a visit to see, hold and feel this beautiful edition... And I loved it. 

Some Information About The Edition:
1) The paintings are the words of renowned artist Sri G. L. N. Simha. All the paintings are done as per Chitra Sutra of Vishnudarmottara Purana which dwells on guidelines for the divine paintings.
2) The entire edition is printed with environmental friendly vegetable inks made of natural ingredients from Japan.
3) The finest FSC certified and Acid free paper sourced from the sustainable European forest.

The guiding thought behind this edition is ...
"Our scriptures state that the offering of spiritual wisdom is superior to any material offering."

The philosophies and insights of the Bhagvad Gita transcends all religions and reach out to humanity as a whole by virtue of their sheer relevance at all times. It is regarded as the world's most ancient sacred scripture available to mankind from time immemorial.

In the Gita verses 1 and 2 of chapter 4, the lord Krishna himself has declared that "I taught this Imperishable science of Yoga to Vivian, the Sun God, who taught it to his son Manu; and Kind Manu in turn taught it to his son Ikshvaku. Thus, the royal sage received this knowledge that was handed down to them in continuous succession. But with the passage of time, this knowledge has been lost to the world." It was reinitiated to Arjuna 5140 years back. Based on modern scientific calculations supported by the ancient scriptures it can be authentically said that the Bhagvad Gita was spoken by the Lord to Vivasan (Sun God) 1 Billion, 971 Million, 828 thousand 568 earthly years ago.

Now please enjoy the visual splendour of Bhagvad Gita through my impressions and I thank Odyssey and their team for giving me this opportunity...

"O Parantapa! Those who do not have faith in this Dharma. do not attain Me. Hence they undergo the endless cycle of births and rebirths (Samsara)." - From Chapter 9 Bhagvad Gita
ॐ नमः शिवाय
