I have heard that Bhagavad Gita helps Albert Einsteen to discover E=mc^2 . Is that true ? Does Bhagavad Gita helps him to become success in his life ?

    Whether Einstein read the Bhagavad Gita isn't really a question about Hinduism, so I'm closing your question. By the way, I don't think Einstein read the Gita, but Oppenheimer, the physicist who worked on the atomic bomb did. After the first atomic bomb test he was reminded of the Gita verse "Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds." – Keshav Srinivasan Mar 31 '15 at 14:13
  • @KeshavSrinivasan I think OP is asking whether the formula E=mc^2 discovered by Einstein has anything to do with Bhagavad gita. but not whether Einstein read bhagavad gita... – Mr_Green Apr 1 '15 at 4:51
  • @Mr_Green The question seemed more about asking "How did the Bhagavad Gita influence Einstein?" Anyway, asking whether the Bhagavad Gita talks about the concept of E=mc^2 would be way too speculative for the site. – Keshav Srinivasan Apr 1 '15 at 5:08
  • Einstein had mystical and spiritual thoughts, which many have construed as non-dualistic. But have never heard that he did so at a young age or that he read the Gita. A good source would be two of his writings: "The World As I See It" (1949) and "Ideas and Opinions" (1954). – Swami Vishwananda Apr 1 '15 at 5:24
