Bhagavad Gita in Spanish Mi compromiso con el Bhagavad Gita Bhagavad Gita in Portuguese Meu compromisso com o Bagavadeguitá.

Many people have asked me about My commitment to the Bhagavad Gita, many people have even asked me, for reasons of work or friends, if I had converted to Hinduism, and I have to tell you no. I believe that the Bhagavad Gita goes beyond any religion, even Vedanta I believe encompasses all the others.

Pedro Nonell: facilitate access to knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita
My mission in relation to the Bhagavad Gita

My first contacts with the Bhagavad Gita were when I was young, thanks to my grandfather, in fact in the book I wrote “The Yoga of Wisdom (Bhagavad Gita)” the first dedication is to my grandfather. When I was five or six years old, he would sit me at his piano and he would explain the stories of Siegfried, Tristan or Arjuna to me. And that stopped there, between 15 and 20 years ago I started studying the Bhagavad Gita again, to return to it, in addition to the Tao Te Ching, the Koran.. and I fell in love with the Bhagavad Gita with all of them.

And this is the commitment that I have acquired in this new phase of my life to make known the principles taught in the Bhagavad Gita, which I believe are:

  1. Universal, beyond any religion or spiritual belief
  2. Timeless, they are equally valid for Arjuna as for any of us and perfectly applicable in today's world

I have even seen Sri Ramakrishna's principle of Harmony between Religions, which is derived directly from the Bhagavad Gita, in action, and I have put it into practice in Africa in the projects that I have been developing there.

I insist, the Bhagavad Gita is a timeless book, valid for all times and places, and that is perhaps what I liked the most.

Pedro Nonell: One of the shlokas that I am most passionate is Bhagavad Gita IV 7-8

I also complement all this with the teachings of two figures that I believe are essential: Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa and Swami Vivekananda.

Who are, first of all, those who have realized in their own lives the principles emanating from the Bhagavad Gita. That is, it is one thing to have the theory explained to us in the Bhagavad Gita, and another to analyze how other people have applied these principles in their lives. And this is the second commitment that I make: to make known the teachings and values ​​of:

Sri Ramakrishna, Harmony, so many paths, so many religions

1- Sri Ramakrishna, a great unknown to the West, the man who saw God, a man whom Gandhi and so many others considered as an incarnation of wisdom, of Vishnu, in fact many Hindus today consider him as a incarnation: the Avatar of the new age, in fact his name is Rama and Krishna, the two incarnations of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

2- And then his disciple Swami Vivekananda, without him surely no one would have understood Ramakrishna's teachings.

Swami Vivekananda Vision: Liberating humanity from ignorance (Bhagavad Gita and Vedanta)

And this is the commitment that I make personally, through the book and the Gita Institute that we have recently created.

Thank you very much
