Please accept my humble obeisances.
I have always been wanting to complete reading the Bhagavad Gita that was gifted by a devotee couple of years ago. Since then, every time I reach a stage where personal and professional life takes over spiritual life and the Bhagavad Gita reading gets hindered and then stops after few weeks/months. By the time I have sorted out things on personal and professional front, there has already been a gap of few weeks/months of not having read the Bhagavad Gita.
Due to this gap in reading, I again re-start the reading from the first chapter to avoid self-guilt but unfortunately I get tangled in the material life cycle again and it hinders my reading. This has been going on for quite some time and I have now reached a stage where I am unable to come to terms why this happens on and on.
Today again, I have taken a resolution to start reading the Bhagavad Gita from tomorrow with deep commitment and finish the reading start to end (few pages a day) without any gap or reading being hindered by whatsoever means.
I seek your guidance and advice to the following:
1. Why is my reading getting hindered time and again?
2. Should I again begin reading from the first chapter OR from where I left last time?
3. Can I read it any time during the day or is there a preferred time?
4. Do I need to follow any rules while reading it?
I am not sure if someone from this forum has faced something like this but, if yes, then shall be glad to understand how you were able to overcome this.
I seek forgiveness from prabhujis and matajis if my question offends anyone, but I am just trying to inquire and have your guidance.
