Product Description

Knowledge is of various grades, and the greatest knowledge is knowledge of the self and the Supreme Self. The more we know about the ultimate cause, the better we can understand the effects. Raja-Vidya: The King of Knowledge is a collection of transcribed lectures by Srila Prabhupada on the ninth chapter of the Bhagavad-gita, wherein, Krishna tells Arjuna why He’s revealing divine knowledge to him; because Arjuna is free of envy.

Srila Prabhupada points out that we can easily understand the Bhagavad-gita to the degree we don’t resent God’s greatness. By knowing God as the source of everything, we can know everything else we need to know: that we’re spirit and not matter, and that loving God is the ultimate goal of life. If we think we’re everything, we’ll envy God, and the Bhagavad-gita won’t make sense to us. Raja-Vidya: The King of Knowledge suggests practical ways to enhance our self-knowledge and understanding of the Supreme Person. The result of such knowledge is freedom from the anxieties of this temporary, ever-changing world.
