The game of golf is a microcosm of the "game" of life. Patience, calmness, humility, and knowledge are as indispensable for a well-played golf match as they are for a well-lived life. This is Bagger Vance’s message, and he tries to impart that knowledge to Junah.
|Bhagavad-Gita||The Legend of Bagger Vance|
|Bhagavan explains the meaning of life to Arjuna. He explains why the battle must be fought - and why Arjuna is the best man to do it.
Even if he respects the other side as wiser than he. Even if he respects the other side as near relatives.
When Arjuna understands the full meaning of life - and what he must humbly do to lead his warriors - he agrees to fight the battle. It is, really, the battle of life he must fully embrace. Bhagavan - as charioteer - will help him.

Even if he respects the other golfers as wiser than he. Even if he respects them as golf brothers.
When Junah understands the full meaning of life - and what he must humbly do to use his authentic swing - he agrees to play the game. It is, really, the game of life he must embrace. Bagger Vance - as caddy - will help him.
