In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna employs various teaching methods to aid Arjuna’s comprehension and to remove his misunderstandings. He often explains a difficult statement with the aid of a simile drawn from everyday human experience and the Bhagavad Gita contains some of the most suggestive and beautiful similes in the entire sacred literature of Hinduism.
