Approach to Gita from the standpoint of sadhana. This book says though that much of the gita is meant to be contemplated more than "done".

PREFACE
There is, perhaps, no other religious text or philosophicaltreatise which has been interpreted or misinterpreted, commentedupon, lectured upon and handled by so many thousands of Acharyas, Masters, both old and modern, Scholars and Savants,as
BHAGAVAD GITA.
The author is a humble sannyasi with nopretentions either to scholarship or any spiritual height. With alldiffidence he has tried to limelight in this book the types of spiritualpractices or S¢dhan¢s delineated in the text either directly orindirectly as understood by him from his Master's own life andthe few revelations which came up in his studies and austerities.These are all S¢dhan¢s befitting all stages of spiritual growth- fromthe
L.K.G.
class to the Ph.D (Doctorate). Except on two or threeoccasions, the author has steered clear of all controversial issuesand sectarian interpretations.Srimad Bhagavad Gita mainly means the ""song sung by
SRIBHAGAWAN''
. It is rarely that people sing their own compositions.In the Gita M¢h¢tmya, it is told
""GITA ME H§DAYAM P¡RTHA''
i.e.,
GITA
is the heart of the Lord. Lord Krishna has opened his heartand gave the Gita of his heart to Arjuna. The entire Gita is aconversation from heart to heart between two companions.
""SAMV¡DAMIMAM A½ROUSHAM ADBHUTAM ROMAHARSHANAM''
The truths of the
GITA
can be understood only if one givesone's heart to it. It can never be mastered through intellect andscholarship alone. The entire Gita which was always clamouringinside the heart of the Lord came up by itself without any effortwhen once the Lord opened his mouth.
