If we want to know the meanings of Gītā, then we will have to follow the path of Arjuna. There, he has first admitted that Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, otherwise you cannot understand. Kṛṣṇa is eternal and the jīva is eternal. The relation between the jīva and Bhagavān is eternal—this is sanātana-dharma. Jīvas are all eternal servants of Kṛṣṇa. This is the message of Caitanya Mahāprabhu. This is the message of all the Vedas and Upaniṣads. This is sanātana-dharma. Kṛṣṇa, Rāma and all others tell the same thing. All scriptures tell like that.
