Raja-Vidya: The King of Knowledge is a collection of transcribed lectures by Srila Prabhupada on the ninth chapter of the Bhagavad-gita.
In that section of the Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna why He is revealing divine knowledge to him; because Arjuna is free from envy. Srila Prabhupada points out that we can also understand the Bhagavad-gita to the degree we don't resent God's greatness. By knowing God as the source of everything, we can know everything else we need to know; we are spirit and not matter. Loving God is the ultimate goal of life. If we think we are everything, we will envy God, and the Bhagavad-gita won't make sense to us. The King of Knowledge suggests practical ways to enhance our self-knowledge and understanding of the Supreme Person. The result of such knowledge is freedom from the anxieties of this temporary, ever-changing world.
This Knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting and it is joyfully performed.
