This part will focus on assessing the influence of the Bhagavad Gita in the West. The global expansion of yoga will be studied, the influence of the Bhagavad Gita on important figures such as Arthur Schopenhauer, Henry Thoreau, Albert Einstein, TS Elliot, Richard Wagner or Carl Jung.

The teachings of the Bhagavad Gita are increasingly influential to the West. Since the 19th century, the West began to take an interest in the East, particularly in Indian and Chinese culture.

The Bhagavad Gita is the book that enlightened me the most in my entire life. Goethe

Perhaps the most prominent figure to the West influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism was the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, who reflected on the importance of the Upanishads in Western culture, equating it with the Greek legacy.

«The Upanishads are the product of the highest human wisdom.. I presume that the influence of Sanskrit literature will have no less impact than the renaissance of Greek literature in the 15th century.» Arthur Schopenhauer.

The current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a giant inauguration of the Bhagavad Gita (670 pages and weighing 800 kg) at the temple of the International Society for Sri Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in Delhi cited precisely these reflections by Arthur Schopenhauer.

In Tristan and Isolde ("the most beautiful love poem ever written", according to Thomas Mann) and in Richard Wagner's Parsifal, the influences of Schopenhauer, Buddhism and Hinduism can be observed through the Bhagavad Gita.
