His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Raja-Vidya: The King of Knowledge is a collection of transcribed lectures by Srila Prabhupada on the ninth chapter of the Bhagavad-gita, wherein, Krishna tells Arjuna why He’s revealing divine knowledge to him; because Arjuna is free of envy.
Srila Prabhupada points out that we can easily understand the Bhagavad-gita to the degree we don’t resent God’s greatness. By knowing God as the source of everything, we can know everything else we need to know: that we’re spirit and not matter, and that loving God is the ultimate goal of life. If we think we’re everything, we’ll envy God, and the Bhagavad-gita won’t make sense to us. Raja-Vidya: The King of Knowledge suggests practical ways to enhance our self-knowledge and understanding of the Supreme Person. The result of such knowledge is freedom from the anxieties of this temporary, ever-changing world.
