Essence of Gita-Yoga
"Essence of Gita-Yoga" is an English rendering by Dr. Satyadeo Sah(M.A., Ph.D.), a learned and great disciple of Sadguru Maharshi Mehi, of the original book "Shri Gita-Yoga-Prakash" written by Maharshi Mehi. Maharshi Mehi here renders sermons of Lord Krishna and lessons of the Gita more comprehensible and easily practicable. Besides, He dispels many prevalent suspicions of the Gita's seemingly intractable nature, and throws sufficient light on the quintessence of it by taking recourse to familiar allusions and lucid expressions. Maharshi ji interpretes its lessons in practical Yogic terms so that people might be easily induced to read, understand and practise them. He no longer treats the book only as an excellent repository of ancient wisdom and esoteric oriental mysticism. Take, for example, the Yoga. Yoga, India so much prides herself on, is, He states, no longer only a mystic word or an impracticable term, but a simple lesson duty of life which it is easy for men and women to practise without taking resort to reclusion, austerities and renunciation of duties and obligations to their families, commounities and countries. That is, Yoga can be adopted and absorbed as an item of one's daily routine of life like several other items of daily existence, and practised even for a fragment of time inspite of, and amidst, hard pressure of time and tremendous other odds and ends. So, the original of the present book "Shri Gita-Yoga-Prakash" written by great spiritual guide His Holiness Sadguru Maharshi Mehi Paramhansa is a sure and reliable interpretation as a Yogi sees it.

Chapter 1: Arjuna Vishada Yoga (The Yoga of Dejection)
This chapter deals with the Yoga of Dejection.

As people believe the incarnation of Lord Shri Krishna took place in India a little over five thousand years ago. A great terrible civil war had taken place in His time among the Kings of Kauravas chronicle. Those kings were called as Kauravas and Pandavas.
Lord Krishna had taken the responsibility of driving the chariot of Pandava Arjuna in that war. King Dhritarashtra, the father of King Duryodhana and other Kauravas, was old and blind. He did not go to the battlefield. While being at home he had the desire to be aware of the news about the battle. So his secretary, Sanjaya used to narrate him the news about the battle. On being asked by the king he furnished him with preliminary information about the battle and added - When the armies of both sides were facing each other, at the very moment Arjuna prayed to Lord Shri Krishna, "Please, be kind enough to take my chariot between the armies of both the sides and stop it there so that I may see the heroes with whom I have to fight." Lord Krishna did so. Arjuna could see in both the armies his own near and dear ones and relatives only. Seeing this, he was over powered by grief, pity and dejection. He became averse to battle.
This is the gist of 'The Yoga of Dejection of Arjuna' described in the first chapter of the Gita. Dejection implies the meaning of grief, sorrow, agony and shock etc. Arjuna became full of dejection after seeing the said scene in the battlefield. This has been described in this chapter and this is why it has been entitled as the 'Yoga of Dejection of Arjuna'. It comes into knowledge through this chapter that 'to unite with' is Yoga. Whatever message was conveyed by Sanjaya in the form of conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna has been described in all the eighteen chapters of the Shrimadbhagawadgita.
