If you are referring to problems regarding philosophy and direction of life, YES. I would say, Gita has no parallels in any religion of world. There are no miracle stories or blind faith emphasis. Very logical, persuasive, enlightening and strengthening. But I would also say that almost all Hindi and English translations I read for Gita are misleading. Gita was a message of one warrior to another. Perhaps, saints and intellectuals are not right people to interpret it. If you read Gita in original Sanskrit, it is super awesome. There is nothing that equals it.

There are other wonderful texts in Hinduism as well – Vedas, Upanishads, Yog Darshan etc. But Gita is less technical, simpler. Like a hacker’s guide to success and direction.

I intend to bring out an honest practical translation of Gita that is less jargon and more substance.

Disclaimer:  We believe in "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" (entire humanity is my own family). "Love all, hate none" is one of our slogans. Striving for world peace is one of our objectives. For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.
