Saturday was the three-year anniversary of our site, and not long before that we passed our 5000 question mark. I wanted to commemorate all that by making a post illustrating how much of the verses of Hindu scripture has been asked about here. In a way, the questions of our site form a Bhashya or commentary on many of the scriptures of Hinduism. So I've compiled all the questions which ask about a specific verse of the Bhagavad Gita or the Brahma Sutras.

I've started with these two scriptures, but if people find other scriptures whose verses have been frequently asked about, I can add those as well. By the way, this serves multiple purposes: it highlights how far we've come, it encourages people to post more scripture-based questions, and it's a reference for people in future if they're interested in a given scriptural verse.

  • @Pandya I think we have covered a relatively small number of Bhagavatam verses with our questions, but one or more of the Mukhya Upanishads may be more fruitful. Commented Jun 21, 2017 at 5:23
