Scriptures bring us the knowledge which our senses are unable to provide. At every level of our life we can learn from The Gita. It is up to the individual how he/she wants to utilize the message of The Gita.
Ultimately it is ‘Brahma Vidya’ that is the knowledge of oneness and it is ‘Yoga Shastra’, the scripture which unites us with our higher dimensions.
