Publisher's Summary

The Bhagavad Gita is a Hindu scripture written in Sanskrit language. It was written as part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata by the sage Ved Vyas, whose full name was Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa. The scripture contains 700 verses that talk about various spiritual issues that you may come across in your life and that help in achieving liberation.

"Gita" means song and "Bhagavada" means God. Together the words mean "Song of the Lord". Here Lord refers to the Hindu god, Krishna. The word "Srimada" is often added at the beginning of the name as a matter of respect, since Hindus believe that when you read the Gita, the essence of all spiritual knowledge is revealed to you.

Hindus believe that the Gita was originally spoken by Lord Krishna in the holy land of Kurukshetra, the place where the Mahabharata war was fought between the feuding families, the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Set in a narrative framework, the Gita is a dialogue between the Pandava prince, Arjun and Lord Krishna, who was his charioteer during this war.

If you are interested to learn about life, God, creation, birth and death, karma and dharma, the undying soul, salvation, and the real purpose of human existence, the Gita can be one of the best scriptures to satisfy all your spiritual queries. Furthermore, it is written in such a melodious and harmonic rhyming meter that it can be a wonderful listening experience.
