The Universality and Singularity of God
Posted by Literary Titan
aKsara Bhagavad Gita is an enlightening book that provides a unique view of the Bhagavad Gita. Why was this an important book for you to write?
To usher in cosmic harmony and promote universal brotherhood amongst different religionists by proposing a common paradigm to interpret scripture of any religion/philosophy or ideology. It is based on logic and derives authority from the Gita itself. The proposed paradigm codifies all rules of interpretation. This is done by enunciating rules of interpretation from the God’s quotes in the Gita, substantiating the enunciated principles by way of a mock debate, and providing an built-in checker to cross verify our interpretations and also an provides inbuilt auto updater so as to stay relevant under all changing times and circumstances. It is a Hermeneuticians touchstone and fulfilment of their long sought quest.
What were some key ideas that were important for you to explore in this book?
The words/sentences uttered in the Gita have been analysed and commented upon in a number of different ways by innumerable persons since 3270 B.C.
The untouched part of the concept underlying the words, beyond the words and the positioning of the words and sentences, that which is communicated but not spoken, the relationship between the concepts and the words, between different branches of learning and their relationship with the Gita and its usage, cognition thereof and metacognition are some ideas explored. At another level, the universality and singularity of God, relationship of humans and living entities with God, and how He wanted us to understand and act, these and some other ideas are also examined in the book.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
God is one, omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, irrespective of the name you choose to identify Him, the rituals you follow or the beliefs you profess, and He didn’t ask His children to fight amongst themselves or endorse killing in His name to uphold His superiority or His words.
What kind of research did you undertake to complete this book?
If you observe closely, you will notice that there are two parts the book. The Gita proper and other subjects like grammar, law, management, logic, science etc. I haven’t researched anything about Gita. It was a revelation or an inspired communication from the divine without any intervening media.
The other mundane part required research. I had vague memory of the fundamental concepts of those branches of knowledge which required to be refreshed and correlated with Gita. I have used Google, Wikipedia, and Dictionary etc. extensively for this purpose.
