Karma that is devoid of myths

It is melancholic to observe that Bhagavad Gita has been branded as a recital at a person’s demise intended for right transmigration of soul or attainment of salvation or for other devotional purposes. Such outrageous beliefs have demeaned the sacrosanct rendition by GOD Krishna for the welfare of humankind. The society is blindfolded with myths and practice of various customs for appeasing GOD for fulfillment of desires. I am not in any manner criticizing any of the customary rituals but I am certainly obligated to depict the true picture.

Another aspect taken as a decree from Bhagavad Gita is renunciation from deeds and putting sole focus on Bhakti (Worship) whereas Lord Krishna had stressed upon Bhaktiyukta Karma i.e deeds based on unconditional worship. It is significant to observe that after Gita was downloaded to Arjuna, he performed a different quality of deed by engaging in war with an aim to establish Dharma by destroying Adharma. It would be essential to perceive what had he renounced!
