“CONTRAST BETWEEN KARMA AND DHARMA IS THE SPIRIT OF HOLY BHAGAVAD GITA”
Gita is a philosophical book that concentrates on to a conversation between Prime Arjuna and wise Lord Krishna. It is all about the teaching of Lord Krishna to Arjuna. The book teaches us about wisdom, devotion and self realization. It tells us that when we do karma using dharma we can solve all samsaric issues and eat up its cycle.
Srimad Bhagavad GIta is a solution to all the conflicts which one faces while making ant decision. When Arjuna’s mind and soul falls in conflict and the war seemed him as pointless, then Krishna tells him to be brave, Krishna tells that it is the prime duty of everyone to kill the evil using dharma. Further, Lord Krishna adds telling that everyone in the universe is immortal, only the body and flesh dies but the soul just passes from one body to another. The only motto of the war was to defeat evil and to regain the power of good for the kingdom.
A beautiful line said by Lord Krishna,
“STOP FOCUSING ON THE FRUIT OF LABOR BUT FOCUS ON HOW YOU PLANTED IT”
It meant that one should not focus on the destination, once it is decided; everyone should focus on the pathway on how to get there.
Lord Krishna says that everyone should achieve perfect yoga. He says that one who achieves perfect yoga wins the battle against undesirable feelings of greed, ego, fear and anger.
Gita also teaches us about Meditation. Meditation with selfless action is the only key of finding peace. It teaches us self control of body along with our mind and soul. Meditation is a great way to restore our mental as well as physical health and also helps us to maintain a balance between them.
Lord Krishna says that love originates from a person’s altruistic devoutness. A person must let go of their body lust and enticement and hatred to find true freedom. At last, Arjuna is enlightened and he realizes the contrast between karma and dharma, so he proceeds ahead in the battlefield to keep the good and truth alive.
Undoubtedly, the Gita is a immortal intangible doctrine. It revolves around the message we should keep doing work without any attachment of results. All the 18 chapters are completed into four category of yoga namely the Karma yoga, the Raja yoga, the Bhakti yoga and Jnana yoga.

Gita not only influenced the adults but also left a mark on the youth. It is a source to purify heart and helps us to come out from our wicked mind and soul and leave all our lavish way o living and attain perfect yoga.
VYASA, the writer of Bhagavad Gita just created a marvelous scripture to drain the impurity from our heart and soul making us a justified creation of God. We must be really proud on our heritage and should imply the teaching of Bhagavad Gita in our daily life.
