Since 1977, those who have passed through the doors of the museum have rarely left unchanged. You will be treated with an aural-visual delight, enlightening all in a 45-minute lesson of the topmost of transcendental knowledge.
George Harrison: I thought it was great — better than Disneyland, really. I mean, it’s as valuable as that or the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. The sculpted dioramas look great, and the music is nice. It gives people a real feel for what the kingdom of God must be like, and much more basic than that, it shows in a way that’s easy for even a child to understand exactly how the body is different from the soul, and how the soul’s the important thing.
What is the Bhagavad-gita?
The Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India’s spiritual wisdom. The Gita provides a definitive guide to the science of self realization. Indeed, no work even compares in its revelations of man’s essential nature, his environment, and his relationship with God.
Albert Einstein: When I read the Bhagavad-gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.
Henry David Thoreau: In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial.
Herman Hesse: The marvel of the Bhagavad-gita is its truly beautiful revelation of life’s wisdom which enables philosophy to blossom into religion.
Mahatma Gandhi: When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson: I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.
Aldous Huxley: The Bhagavad-Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity.
