A doctor's chat show on the Gita

Dr. Krishna Bhatta presenting a copy of his book to the Vice-President, Bhairon Singh Shekhawat in the Capital. 

THINK OF the Bhagwad Gita and immediately long-winding lectures by saints and sanyasins come to one's mind. But an Indian doctor living in the U.S., Krishna Bhatta, has now endeavoured to produce a chat show on the Gita for television based on a recent book that he has authored, "Gita Today".  more>>

About the book:
The book looks at the teachings of Bhagawad Gita from Arjuna's point of view. The author has described clearly the changes taking place in Arjuna as the Gita progresses. From a reluctant warrior, Arjuna emerges as a transformed stitapragya who can be decisive, fearless, invincible and less emotional. This book is Volume I of the series and covers the first two chapters of Bhagavad-Gita.

The presentation of the book is unique because it is original and fresh. The thoughts in Bhagawad Gita can be interpreted in many ways and each of them may be appropriate. The author has explained the thoughts in Gita in a fresh manner. He has compared the happenings at the time of Mahabharat war with the present times. There are references to the Kargil war, to filmstars like Raj Kapoor, to Mahavir and Buddha, to Osho and Rajneesh, to make the book more understandable and interesting to the lay person.

About The Author Dr Krishna Bhatta:
A practicing Urologist, Dr Bhatta developed his interest in Bhagavad-Gita from a very young age. He was exposed to the teachings of Gita from his father. He has a love for our scriptures including Upanishads and is involved in producing a television serial on Gita as well.

In two words, Gita is simple and it is practical.
It deals with issues that we encounter in our real life,

   ... yet it is so profound Page 80

Gyan yoga leads to sum-bhava,
buddhi yoga (karma yoga) leads to sum-buddhi (clarity)
and bhakti yoga (devotion) leads to

true understanding of sum-arpan (surrendering). Page 148

But, what I want most
O Krishna, Hey Parmatma
Is For you to be by my side
Like you stood besides Arjuna
In happiness and in despair
I am a seeker I need a friend, a companion
To hold my hand and tell me to stand up
When the chips are down
I am a seeker

Gita is a search for me Page XXIV
