Here is the english version of essence of Bhagavad Gita that gives the inspirational messages the gives lot of strength and courage at times of difficulties.
Bhagavad Gita very appropriate for us Tamils living in the northeastern region of Sri Lanka during the civil-war years and beyond. Gita is now applicable to all Sri Lankans as the country is economically in ruins. That has put the country’s sovereignty in danger, with many powerful nations looking to exploit this little nation in the Indian Ocean.
In the scenario, with all the people in the dark and especially the Tamil speaking minorities facing real hard times with no chance of seeing daylight in the foreseeable future; these inspirational messages from the Bhagavad Gita would certainly give all Sri Lankans strength and courage to unite and work together for the change, the eternal Law of Universe to build a nation fit for all communities living in the country, that was once the paradise in the Indian Ocean.
