One of the greatest contributions of India to the world is the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Gita was spoken when there was deep crisis. The war was not with the words. It was a war where people were ready to kill each other. Gita was preached by Lord Krishna to motivate Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra when Arjuna got depressed when he saw his relatives with whom he has to fight. It is a divine book containing unlimited knowledge. It contains transformative powers at the human and society level. The verses (shlokas) and teachings of Gita can act as life-changing lessons. In this conversation four characters are involved : Krishna, Arjuna, Sanjay and Dhritrashtra. The whole conversation is of 48 minutes (one muhurta). It contains 18 chapters and 700 shlokas. One thing which is common between all persons who have become successful in this world is their ability to overcome challenges in life. By applying the principles of Bhagavad Gita we can overcome challenges of our life and become successful. Anyone can apply the principles of Gita in his/her life and overcome challenges and become successful. The paper focuses on how to develop positive attitude in life through the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.
