vyāsa-prasādāch chhrutavān etad guhyam ahaṁ param
yogaṁ yogeśhvarāt kṛiṣhṇāt sākṣhāt kathayataḥ svayam
vyāsa-prasādāt—by the grace of Ved Vyas; śhrutavān—have heard; etat—this; guhyam—secret; aham—I; param—supreme; yogam—Yog; yoga-īśhvarāt—from the Lod of Yog; kṛiṣhṇāt—from Shree Krishna; sākṣhāt—directly; kathayataḥ—speaking; svayam—himself
Through the grace of Vyasa, I have heard this supreme and most secret Yoga direct from Krishna, the Lord of Yoga, Himself declaring it.
The Gita-Sastra is Yoga. Yoga means that which unites. The Jivatman merges into Paramatman by Yoga. So the Gita is said to be Yoga-Sastra. It contains the supreme and most profound secret. Therefore for the seekers of truth, it is the most valuable course of study.
Yogeswarat: Krishna is the Lord of Yoga. One can understand with what kind of deep faith and devotion, he should hear the message of the Gita.
Sakshat: How was Sanjaya sitting in the royal palace able to hear the dialogue taking place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra? Vyasa conferred on Sanjaya the miraculous power of seeing and hearing what was happening at a distance. It is not second-hand information reported to Sanjaya by someone else. He heard it directly. He is communicating it as he heard it for the benefit of humanity.
Question: What is the greatness of the Gita?
Answer: It contains the most profound spiritual secret. It is directly declared by the Lord Himself.
