Gita is a military manual and contains instructions given on battlefield, should be read by all: Major General Subhash Sharan

Recalling an interesting anecdote, he said that the American army had taken copies of Bhagavad Gita from India for their soldiers who were about to be deployed Iraq.

Major General Subhash Sharan who is the additional director-general of Army recruitment in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and Uttarakhand reportedly said that the Bhagavad Gita is a military manual that should be read by all youngsters.

Major General Subhash Sharan also said that the Bhagavad Gita also prepares people for all eventualities of life.

Major General further said that Bhagavad Gita contains instructions which are usually imparted on the battlefield.

“Bhagavad Gita is not a religious book. Youngsters must read it for the simple reason that it will prepare us for all eventualities of life. Bhagavad Gita is a military manual which contains instructions which is given on the battlefield. In the battlefield, we only talk about war. Therefore, I call the Bhagavad Gita a military manual”, he added.

Major General Sharan was in Meerut on 22nd June, Friday after the first round of recruitment rally in western UP which was held in Baghpat’s Baraut from May 25th to June 15th.

Recalling an interesting anecdote, he said that the American army had taken copies of Bhagavad Gita from India for their soldiers who were about to be deployed Iraq.

“To motivate their soldiers, the Americans took 30,000 copies of Bhagavad Gita to teach them ‘Karma Yoga’, that is, the reason behind fighting a battle and engaging their enemy without thinking about the final outcome”, he added.
