Registration  for these Evening talks (it helps us to get correct number of souvenirs)  HERE

In chapter 16, Bhagvān said that the śāstra is the pramāṇa in determining what is right and wrong and that one should act according to what śāstra says. Based on this Arjuna raises a question in the 17th chapter – ṭo what category does a person belongs if he worships with faith without scriptural knowledge . Sraddhä (faith) is of three types when looked at on the basis of the gunas, sattva, rajas, and tamas. The topic of chapter 17 is the division of the threefold sraddhä, sraddhä-traya-vibhäga-yoga. The type of sraddhä a person has is going to decide even his eating habits and a number of other things. Thus, the various manifestations of different types of sraddhä are also going to be told in this chapter.
