Just before the Great War in the Mahabharata, Arjuna developed anxiety, fear of failure and other psychological problems. That is why many scholars suggest Sri Krishna was counselling Arjuna to over come the psychological problems. The present age is filled with Arjunas and modern psychiatry is now developing Bhagavad Gita as a clinical tool to overcome psychological problems.
The Bhagvad Gita is fast emerging as a clinical tool to treat certain psychological problems, particularly those related to anxiety, examination and interview fears, depression and a negative attitude towards life and career goals. Sustained counselling by applying different psychological methods, as Krishna did to Arjuna, has been quite helpful in clinical practice. Doctors also point out that the Gita, as a psychotherapeutic tool, best suits Indian conditions as the current Western models of psychological counselling have failed to deliver in the country.
