This study is conducted to illustrate the relationship between knowledge and serving humanity. The Bhagavad Gita as a whole is Song of the Spirit of truth-realization between man and the Creator. Research, dialogue, discussion and advanced acceptability of its practice are improving our lives. Human knowledge and desirability of human society need more research on the Gita globally.

In this paper it may be hoped, readers will have an opportunity of getting in touch with the spirit of the songs as revealed in our sacred texts specially for knowledge and manifestation of humanity in our life. Many great expressions of man have to be judged not by the words but by the spirit - the spirit which evolves itself with the life in history.

Elliot’s reference of the Gita in his poetry; as well as scientific inventor Nikola Tesla’s interaction with the verses of the Vedas and the influence of the Gita on the father of atom bomb, J.
