History Speaks: As per historians who chronicle events, it was the art theft of the century... On August 21st, 1911, someone stole the most famous painting in the world from the Louvre. According to author Seymour Reit, "Someone walked into the Salon Carré, lifted it off the wall and went out with it! The painting was stolen Monday morning, but the interesting thing about it was that it wasn't 'til Tuesday at noon that they first realized it was gone."
From the epics: Bhagavad-Gita: Yesterday we had a quote from the Holy Quran and Wishesh dedicated the same to our brethren. And today we are getting back from where we left on Friday.

Lord Krishna enlightens his disciple about the various duties, one has to perform at various stages of life, in a society. And now let us have a look what great people said about Bhagavad Gita, Herman Hesse, stated that the wonder of the Bhagavad-Gita is its beautiful revelation of life's wisdom which has made philosophy blossom into religion.
And today we move on to Chapter Four, Jnana Yoga deals with, 'Approaching the Ultimate Truth.'The Lord prevails on his disciple the enlightenment that one receives when spiritual knowledge form the divine being through intense meditation. He also reveals the reasons of his descent.
