Why We Read The Bhagawat Gita???

Read this nice story - Why we read the Bhagavat Gita, even if we can't
understand it?

An old farmer lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson.
Each morning, Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading
his Bhagavat Geeta..

His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every
way he could.

One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read the Bhagawat Geeta
just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand, I
forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Bhagawat
Geeta do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,
"Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of
water."

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got
back to the house.

The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to move a little faster
next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.

This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he
returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was
impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket
instead.

The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of
water. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to
watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his
grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak
out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into
river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was
again empty.

Out of breath, he said, "SEE.... it is useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket."

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the
basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket
and was now clean, inside and out.


"Son, that's what happens when you read the Bhagavat Gita. You might not
understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be
changed, inside and out. That is the work of Lord Krishna in our lives."
