The study of any scripture, however sacred, would prove futile if it cannot be relevant to today's human needs. That, which apart from being true to its own epoch, also holds within it the message for future humanity must be an ideal treatise, which can deliver modern man from his present state of spiritual bankruptcy.
The aim of studying the Bhagawad Gita is to unravel the message always verifiable by experience it contains, the truth that is valid for all ages, and all mankind.
Sri Aurobindo's vision further clarifies the spirit of the Gita's teaching, which was missed by earlier thinkers due to their keenness in finding in the Gita sufficient material to support their own philosophical thesis.
We propose to approach this epic composition with an attitude of humility and not one of judgement. We hope to seek from it its essential and living message, and not delve into a mere academic scrutiny of terms. The Bhagawad Gita is not a record-book of historical events and therefore, we look at it not from the eye of a historian, but with the openness of a seeker.
