The 13th chapter of Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta is my favourite because I took to listening to discourses on Her through the divine words of Revered Pandurang Shashtriji. Here Bhagwaan reveals that the body which we have is nothing but the “Kshetra” (fielder) and He, Himself is the “Kshetradnya” (farmer).
One needs to read this chapter again and again and at all walks if life because there is clear guiding light about what to show in it.
