That is awesome Joaquin!!!
after you finish reading the bhagavad gita as it is, I'd suggest you to read,
God Talks with Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita
This is an spiritual interpretation of the sacred text, Paramahansa Yogananda uses his intuition, as well as his knowledge of sanskrit and the yoga sutras of patanjali to explain you what is the true meaning of the story, and what does every character that appears on it represents.
Vyasa who was the author of the bhagavad gita, was clever enough to give every character a meaning he coded this meaning on the names of them, which are roots of sanskrit that have very precise meaning
I'd also like to say that the first culture to grasp the concept of infinity were the hindus and jains.
The Indian
mathematical text
Surya Prajnapti (c. 400 BC) classifies all numbers into three sets: enumerable, innumerable, and infinite. Each of these was further subdivided into three orders:
 Enumerable: lowest, intermediate and highest
 Innumerable: nearly innumerable, truly innumerable and innumerably innumerable
 Infinite: nearly infinite, truly infinite, infinitely infinite
The
Jains were the first to discard the idea that all infinites were the same or equal. They recognized different types of infinities: infinite in length (one
dimension), infinite in area (two dimensions), infinite in volume (three dimensions), and infinite perpetually (infinite number of dimensions).
According to Singh (1987), Joseph (2000) and Agrawal (2000), the highest enumerable number
N of the Jains corresponds to the modern concept of
alephnull (the
cardinal number of the infinite set of integers 1, 2, ...), the smallest cardinal
transfinite number. The Jains also defined a whole system of infinite cardinal numbers, of which the highest enumerable number
N is the smallest.
In the Jaina work on the
theory of sets, two basic types of infinite numbers are distinguished. On both physical and
ontological grounds, a distinction was made between
asaṃkhyāta ("countless, innumerable") and
ananta ("endless, unlimited"), between rigidly bounded and loosely bounded infinities.
Kudos to you too!
