Analysis Of The Geeta

Good Essays
Body of the paper
The content of the Geeta is the conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna taking place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra before the start of the war between the two clans of the brothers- the Kauravas and the Pandavas. Responding to Arjuna’s confusion and dilemma about fighting his own cousins, Bhagwan Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and prince and elaborates on different Vedantic concepts.

This predisposition to control is present in them because it is in Krishna – The Supreme Controller. But the living entities irrespective to their controlling facility can never be equal to the Supreme Regulator – Sri Krishna. As the root of a tree maintains the entire tree, Krishna, being the original root of all possessions, maintains everything in this material demonstration. This is also confirmed in the Vedic literature (Katha Upanisad

    Though a story of family conflict, The Bhagavad Gita presents a cosmic struggle between desire and duty. Arjuna, the central character, is justly tasked with a leading war against a branch of his family that has usurped the throne, but struggles with fulfilling his role because of his close ties to the perpetrators. The god Krishna, presenting himself as Arjuna’s charioteer, advises Arjuna. In the eleventh discourse, Krishna chooses to reveal his divine form to Arjuna, encompassing his roles as Creator, Protector, and Destroyer. Out of all Krishna’s forms, the text describes his role as the Destroyer in the greatest, most discomforting detail.…

    In order for man to take superiority of their lives and transcend, they must first display their universal soul and put themselves in nature because their experience of life is shaped by the world. Each individual is a manifestation of creation, and must be as pure and self-reliant as nature. Because, nature, too, is an expression of the divine and by becoming one with nature, you can transcend within in the world.

Nature grows and flourishes on its own.…

    Likewise, it solves the problems in expression theory, as the work is considered art whether or not the artist expressed any emotion while making it. As already said, the theory also deals with the problem in the institutional theory of art. This is because works are always art in any point in history, regardless of whether or not the artworld considers a work art. In short, even if the artworld dismisses a work as non-art because they do not like the intended message from the artist, the artwork remains as such if the artist is successful in expressing these intentions, that is if the audience’s interpretation of the artwork’s meaning is correct. However, while this aspect of the theory solves the counterexample to the institutional theory, it simultaneously brings another problem to the…

An artist does not need to physically produce the piece; using pre-made materials, natural materials, etc to create a conceptual idea or physical art…
