The Lord here declares that those who teach the Gita to his devotees would reach Him, attain Moksha. From this, we understand the high value of true service to humanity. Of course, there are many forms of service, but the highest service a wise man can do is to transmit his knowledge to others. Such a man attains the highest fruit of service, namely liberation. The knowledge embedded in the Gita contains the most profound secret of life. It provides the key to Liberation. It is no doubt a great thing to attain knowledge and liberate oneself, but it is an infinitely greater thing to offer the light of knowledge to others, who are in need, and thus help them to reach the highest goal of life.
