“At a symbolic level, what the Gita is, is a dialogue between God and the seeker. And the battlefield turns out to be the inner battlefield, the battlefield of our own evolutionary being.” – Ram Dass
“The essential teaching which the Gita is trying to convey is that the real center and soul, the basic reality of you and I, is not the superficial consciousness which we ordinarily call, ‘myself.’ What we are, fundamentally, is this unthinkable source of life and existence named Brahman, the expansive.” – Alan Watts
