                                      Gitacharyan and Azhwan 1

In the 13th Adhyaayam (Chapter) of Sri Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna explains the difference between Kshetra (body) and Kshetranja (Knower of the body - soul). As part of his instructions, he explains the 20 important qualities of a God realized person. These qualities are wonderfully visible in Koorathazhwan's life and we will walk through each of the qualities explained by Sri Krishna with specific examples from Koorathazwan's life.
