Is the Gita an attempted reconciliation of different Upanishadic thoughts and not a revelation?
From Mrigank Sharad
Gita seems like trying to strike a compromise between dwaita and adwaita, with some of its verses conforming with the
first , while others with the later. Prabhupad tried to override the exact wordings of the shloka’s that apparently hint towards
adwaita: like , 18.55 : “vishate tad anantaram” equated to “enters into kingdom of God”.
This inherent conflicts in gita have led historians to conclude that Gita is just an attempt to integrate all upnashdic teachings
and school of thoughts of ancient india and not anything divine.
