This Bhagavad-gita, the essence of all the Upanisads, is just like a cow, and Lord Krsna, who is famous as a cowherd boy, is milking this cow. Arjuna is just like a calf, and learned scholars and pure devotees are to drink the nectarean milk of Bhagavad-gita. (Gita-mahatmya 6)
Exclusive devotional service is like Cintamani, a transcendental wish-fulfilling jewel. This Cintamani has been safely kept inside Bhagavad-gita, which can be compared to a treasure chest. The base of this chest comprises the first six chapters, karma-yoga; The lid comprises the last six chapters, Jnana-yoga, and the treasure, in the middle six chapters, is bhakti. (Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja)
