Abstract : Human beings are susceptible to suffering caused by physical pain and mental perturbations. Various coping strategies and psychological techniques seem to improve resilience to transcend physical pain. Among various nursing theories, Pamela Reed’s’theory of Self-transcendence focuses on the holistic wellbeing of an individual. The philosophical and spiritual tenets integrated by Reed in her theory connect an individual to the society and to a higher spiritual entity. Bhagavad Gītā is a principle work of Indian Philosophy that impart lessons on Self-transcendence and universal wellbeing. Current study facilitates a reflection of Reed’s’theory of Self-transcendence and compares its various percepts with the philosophical discussion of Bhagavad Gītā
