His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Raja-Vidya: The King of Knowledge is an edited compilation of transcribed lectures given by Srila Prabhupada on the ninth chapter of the Bhagavad-gita. In that section of the Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna that He's entrusting him with the Gita's sublime knowledge because Arjuna is free from envy. Srila Prabhupada points out that the Bhagavad-gita can be understood by anyone who doesn't resent Krishna's identity as the Supreme Person.
In other words, by seeing Krishna as the center of everything, we can understand the highest knowledge; that we're spirit and not matter, that the Absolute Truth is the source of all existence, and that love of God, bhakti-yoga, is the ultimate goal of life. If we think we're the all in all, we'll be envious of Krishna, and won't be able to hear His teachings.
The King of Knowledge suggests a number of practical ways to enhance our knowledge and understanding of ourselves and of the Supreme Person, thus freeing us from the typical existential miseries and anxieties that go along with life in this world of constant struggle and upheaval.
