Individuals have struggled for the comprehensive development of life since ancient times. At that time, the Vedas and the Upanishads were deeply ingrained in the lives of the majority of Indians. Similar to how the Bible did, the Gita became well-known not only in India but also throughout the rest of the world as a moral and spiritual manual for mankind. Since reason is so important to human existence, it is used to analyse a wide variety of worldly phenomena. So, in order to be satisfied with any doctrine, a critical investigation becomes necessary and more urgent. There is no exception in the Bhagavad Gita. Numerous concepts in the text raise complex issues, and the implicit cosmology, metaphysics, pragmatism, epistemology, and spirituality of the Bhagavad Gita have been the focus of this research. The purpose of the current research was to identify the many concepts that the Bhagavad Gita outlines while also critically analysing those concepts to shed light on them. In this article, the significance of the Gita has been addressed in relation to a particular area of positive psychology.Some academics believe that the work has an allegorical significance and has no historical basis, but others believe that the events described in the Gita actually happened as they are described. This study offers a critical examination of this topic in light of many commentators' points of view.
