Recently, a woman at a local hospital was nearing the end of her life. The hospital, unfortunately, did not have a Hindu chaplain on staff. During this critical time, one of the hospital chaplains turned to a resource that was available: a copy of the Gita provided by The Gita Project.
The Gita offers deep insights into life, death, duty, and the journey of the soul. The chaplain, recognizing its potential to provide comfort, read passages from the Gita to the woman as she was passing away. This poignant event underscores the importance of making spiritual texts like the Gita accessible. When no one was there to provide her spiritual comfort, the wisdom contained in the book we provided was able to offer solace and guidance.
This experience reminds us at The Gita Project why we do what we do – making the timeless wisdom of the Gita accessible to those who might seek it, especially in times of need. We’re heartened to know that the Gita we provided was able to serve its highest purpose, offering comfort in a time of transition. It shows the power of accessibility and the profound impact that spiritual wisdom can have when it’s needed most.We remain committed to our mission, and it’s a testament to the potential of our collective efforts to make a positive impact on individual lives.
