Q. How can selling the Bhagavad Gita bring about a change in our society?
A. Members of the Hare Krishna Movement follow ancient India’s Vedic literature, primarily Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam. These teachings date back over 5000 years and are practiced by more than 900 million people today. The Bhagavad-gita also forms the basis of the world’s third largest religion, Hinduism.
The human society is suffering due to ignorance of their true self. So by distribution of transcendental knowledge in the form of Bhagavad Gita, people’s ignorance is destroyed and they start their journey on the spiritual path to understand that they are part and parcel of Krishna and are meant to serve Him. As they engage in Krishna’s service, automatically all their sufferings vanish and they become totally satisfied.
