Part 2: Bhagavad-gita on Freedom

by Acharya das

We read about freedom, dream of freedom, hope for freedom, we may even fight for freedom but do we understand what freedom really is? Why is it that even when we free ourselves from one form of oppression, we simultaneously entrap ourselves in another layer of bondage? Can we ever actually be free? In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna examines the bonds that enslave the soul and shines a light on achieving ultimate freedom.
