Vin Diesel's film features a Bhagavad Gita quote; fans express excitement

In Hollywood, it is rare for deep insights from ancient Hindu texts to receive widespread attention. But, a video of Vin Diesel quoting the Bhagavad Gita in the movie ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ has recently resurfaced on social media and has sparked enthusiasm among fans. It has ignited new discussions about the interplay of spirituality and the film industry.

In the widely circulated clip, Vin Diesel, a renowned Hollywood actor recognized for his roles in high-energy franchises, shares a part of ancient Hindu philosophy with Joe Alwyn, who plays the lead role of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn in the film.

The advice, ‘Always perform with detachment, any action you must do. And surrender all actions to me,’ resonates with the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a revered text from the epic Mahabharata.

The Bhagavad Gita, attributed to the sage Vyasa, is a dialogue between the prince Arjuna and the deity Krishna, who acts as his charioteer. In this scripture, Lord Krishna advises Arjuna on duty, righteousness, and the path to spiritual enlightenment.

Vin Diesel draws a comparison between this ancient wisdom and the internal struggle faced by Joe Alwyn's character in the movie.

Directed by Ang Lee, an Academy Award-winning filmmaker known for his diverse body of work, ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ is an adaptation of Ben Fountain's acclaimed novel.

The story delves into the intricate world of Billy Lynn, a member of Bravo Squad, who unwittingly becomes a hero after a harrowing battle in Iraq. The film examines the contrast between the harsh realities of war and the glorified perceptions of heroism in American society.

The film boasts an ensemble cast, including Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin, each contributing to the nuanced exploration of the human condition in the face of conflict. While not a central figure, Diesel's character serves as a conduit for the imparting of spiritual wisdom, enriching the narrative with added depth.
