The Bhagavad Gita invites you to partake of the power of devotion, bhakti. Modern life magnifies the boundaries that keep you in a state of separateness. Vedanta draws you to experience a vitality greater than your own by identifying with the whole rather than just your little self. It takes you from a deeply entrenched position of antagonism to one of concern, understanding and respect. With Vedanta you move from a feeling of isolation to communication with others. And finally to communion with the Divine. You become God.

Krsna begins by pointing towards the unmanifest, transcendent facet. Even the gods and great sages do not know this aspect as Atman is not an object of comprehension. It is the very subject enabling you to understand. It is unborn, without beginning and the substratum of the universe. One who knows the yoga and vibhuti realises the Self - one who understands Brahman and how exactly It manifests in the world knows all that needs to be known. He is the Enlightened One.
