An ordinary person requires a leader and some specific systems to grow.
He naturally lives a people centric life. However a leader leads him, he follows with trust and confidence, keeping logic and reason far away from him. He does not have to work hard to keep logic and reason far away since he has not developed his logic and reason.On other hand a person who is reasonable and logical has problems following a leader and he faces problems with simple faith and trust. He considers trust and loyalty to be unfounded and cultist. So he starts pursuing knowledge by the method of speculation, or by personal endeavour. His conclusions are fluid and flowing.
He never comes to specific and distinct conclusions. For such an independent and thoughtful person, people guiding him become an obstacle for his abstract thinking. Therefore they shun becoming formal students of a teacher.The first kind of people have a potential to be safe if the leader is genuine, if not then they are hijacked into a sectarian and violent response towards any one who is even remotely anti to their leader.The second kind of people have the safety of not becoming hijacked, they continue to remain independent, intellectually. So there is no question of they being violent towards people, physically, but their problem is their critical thinking that leads them to suspect even the transparent leaders who are worthy of the trust of their subordinates.They believe that anything which is organized is dangerously cultist and miss the opportunity of developing affectionate spirit towards others.The first kind of people are localized, and the second class of people are spread in all directions having no clear direction in their own thought process.Therefore the Gita combines the two. It plays the dynamics of being localized as well as spreading every where.It has the leader in Krishna, and also has the energy of Krishna, which is depicted in the 10th chapter of Gita.There is the same spark in the splendor and glory, as it is in the source of the splendor and the spark. Krishna implores Arjuna to appreciate the power while knowing the powerful and vice versa.
Krishna is there and His glory is there. Glory is appreciated and Krishna is appreciated. This balance is the beauty of Vedanta.
Knowledge is there and the knowledgeable is there.
When common man acknowledges the leader and the quality of leadership, they can appreciate that the same leader whom they follow is possibly available inother places. Similarly the intellectual people can perceive the perspectives, but with the little humility and trust they can perceive the perspective and also perceive the same in the person who is demonstrating.
Therefore Gita tells what dharma is.
As a concept it focuses on Krishna as the upholder and the maker of that Dharma. The leader is there and the leadership is there.
God is there and godlines is there.
The soul and the supersoul, the energy and the energetic simultaneously exist .
Knowledge is there and an institution of knowledge, which is called the Paramapara system, Guru Sisya Paramapara is there .Guru and sisya are there keeping the flow of Knowledge between the two of them.
Knowledge and the process is the goal, and gratitude and service towards the giver and the facilitator is the life of the process.
