Yes, Gods do sing songs. The song is as follows:

यदा यदा ही धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत, अभ्युथानम् अधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् |
परित्राणाय साधुनाम विनाशाय च: दुष्कृताम, धर्मं संस्थापनार्थाय सम्भावामी युगे युगे ||

yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata, abhyutthanam adharmasya tadatmanam srjamy aham
paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskritam, dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge
(Bhagavad Gita: 4.7-8)

This is one of the well-known verses from Bhagavad Gita – The song of God, and one of my favourites too. The meaning of the above verse is as follows:

“Whenever there is decline of Dharma (righteousness) and rise of Adharma (unrighteousness), to protect the virtuous and to destroy the wicked and to re-establish Dharma, I manifest myself, through the ages. For the up-liftment of the good and virtuous, for the destruction of evil, for the re-establishment of the natural law, I will come, in every age.”

The movie is based on the epic Mahabharatam. Sage Veda Vyasa is the composer of the song. Lord Krishna sung this song to Arjuna. The song is dedicated to the entire human race. Above is just one of the songs that God is sing for us. The list of songs can be found in a book called Bhagavad Gita which is considered as a holy book of Hindus.

But why to read Bhagavad Gita when we cannot understand many of the Sanskrit verses in it?

You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be cleansed and purified, inside and out. The effects are immediate and enormous. You will be freed from fears and will gain an unseen boost in your confidence levels.

So, at what age do we need to read Bhagavad Gita? There is no specific season or particular time to start reading this. It is a good practice to daily read at least a verse from Bhagavad Gita since from our childhood. Few of the benefits of reading Bhagavad Gita are:

  • Success in work and good deeds.
  • Self-Realisation, Self-confidence and Personality development.
  • Removal of Sorrow, Disease, Poverty and Family problems.
  • Increases Devotion, Respect towards elders.
  • Removal of mental problems and sadness.
  • Easy Delivery of a baby, Good Children.
  • Freedom from fear, sorrow and many more.

In conclusion, Bhagavad Gita is a transcendental literature which one should read very carefully. Gita-sastram idam punyam yah pathet prayatah puman: If one properly follows the instructions of Bhagavad Gita, one can be freed from all the miseries and anxieties of life.

One need only attentively and regularly hear and read Bhagavad Gita. Most of the people today do not know the mantras of any gods nor do they find enough time to learn them. In such cases, we can just recite the verses mentioned in Bhagavad Gita because this one book will suffice the essence of all Vedic literatures as this is spoken by the Supreme Personality, God himself.
