Bhagavad Gita – Gita Dhyanam
By Swami Viditatmananda Saraswati
THE GITA INVOKED AS MOTHER
A mother is a symbol of love, affection, and spontaneous care, is someone who always prays for your welfare, who never lets you down when you are in trouble. This is also true of the Vedas because, with great compassion, the Veda takes into account the need for the human being to achieve various things in life and talks about the various means and ends for one to achieve them. And finally through self-knowledge in the Upanisads, gets the person out of the pursuit of means and ends. Therefore the Veda or the sruti is given the status of a mother. And because the Gita says exactly what the Vedas say, it is also looked upon as a mother.
In this opening verse, the Gita is invoked in this way: Oh! Mother, I invoke you. I meditate upon you again and again as a mother of blessing.
