Unfortunately there is no institution in the modern society to train anybody about anything beyond the body or the gross thoughts. You want to find out about the body they have medical colleges, but if you want to find about the living force which is taking the body grow there is no place to study. This Krishna Consciousness movement is actually the place for those post graduate students who would like to study the science of self. “Who am I? Where I come from? Where I am going to? What is life? The reason why we refer to this book… This is the Bhagavad-gita. Bhagavad-gita means the song of God. Gita means song, Bhagavata means God. God not in the ordinary sense but bhaga means all opulences.
