Students of the Shri Vishnu Elementary School in the Hague, Netherlands, presented Justice Minister Grapperhaus a copy of the holy book of Hindus: the Bhagwat Gita.
The Shrimad Bhagavad Gita is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the epic Mahabharata dated to the second half of the first millennium BCE and is typical of the Hindu synthesis.
It is considered to be one of the holy scriptures for Hinduism.
The students did this in light of “Gita Jayanti” – the annual celebration of the almost 5000-year-old holy book which is on December 14.
The holy book is a conversation between Godly reincarnation of Krishna and the warrior Arjuna, who on the battlefield wonders whether he is doing the right thing by fighting.
As a parallel of that, we could think of taking the current strict measures of the Covid pandemic. A Cabinet, too, has to consider the doubts and insecurities.
“This century-old book teaches us that when we take everything into consideration, we should still choose for that what is good in the long run and that this cannot be achieved without sacrifices”, said Kavish Partiman the initiator of the presentation
