Who am I – The most asked question by the Mankind

Who Am I - The Atman

Who am I , what is our purpose of coming to this world. Where will I go after this life. When will all this end. .These are some of the eternal questions which keep puzzling us from time to time.

The existence of Bhagavad Gita in Mahabharata itself is because of lack of decision making when Arjuna was overpowered

Swami Sivanand on Mind

The timeless poetry from the mouth of Lord is although the part of the Mahabharata, but is considered as self sufficient Upanishad in itself.

Gita stresses on taming mind for better control over our actions as per Dharma. Mind is one such tool given to mankind free of cost by nature but is worthy of a life time wealth.
