The book is read by many political, scientific and devotional leaders across the globe. Many leaders from Indian Independence such as Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Mahatma Gandhi were also inspired by the teaching of "selfless action" in the book.

Mahatma Gandhi also referred Shrimad Bhagavad Geeta as his Spiritual Dictionary

The Holy book teaches 4 paths which a human can follow to reach the state of spiritual liberation. Spiritual liberation is the term referred to attain a state wherein one is free from cycles of rebirth, often called Moksha. The four paths to Moksha are – 

  1. Jnana - It is the "path of self-realization".
  2. Bhakti - Making loving devotion towards a divine in any form that you believe.
  3. Karma - To do good karma and act according to dharma.
  4. Raja Yoga - Yogic way such as Kundalini awakening. 

When the knowledge of divine light enters in you, every single dilemma, darkness, illusion that you are experiencing just vanishes.
Bhagavad Geeta talks about every aspect of life. One who read it thoroughly and implements the teachings in his life gets the abode of the lord.
