In the so-called Hinduism religion, which should aptly be called Sanatana Dharma, always termed a way of life… there were two paths to follow, one path of religion and the other path of spirituality.
Travelers of material path mostly indulged in path of religion (path of rituals). Those who desired reaching God in present life followed path of spirituality, path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom).
Bhagavad Gita, the sermon given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata above 3600 years before now is purely a philosophical text that requires contemplation, logical reasoning and self enquiry at every stage of indulgence. Merely reading through Bhagavad Gita one never achieved anything in life.
Path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom) was difficult to travel as it demands contemplation at each and every stage of life. But to reach cosmic end of life, 8.4 millionth manifestation, stage of absolute purity… indulgence in path of jnana yoga becomes an absolute necessity.
To unveil hidden underlying meaning of 700 shlokas verses of Bhagavad Gita, path of jnana yoga was the only recourse. As detailed in Bhagavad Gita, one could indulge in Bhagavad Gita even while living in family, conducting routine affairs of life. There was nothing to fear about Bhagavad Gita.
Still, most people world over preferred indulgence in religion (path of rituals) than philosophical content of Bhagavad Gita. It was purely a personal choice whether or not we desired reaching God in present life.
