Bhagavad Gita

Or, The Song Celestial

by Edwin Arnold

The Bhagavad Gita, one of the most sacred and venerated Hindu texts, is a series of conversations between the Lord Krishna – the divine one – and the warrior prince Arjuna in the prelude to the Kurukshetra war. Consisting of seven hundred stanzas and dealing with parables, and analogies covering the Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, it is thought by many to be the Hindu guidebook to life. The Bhagavad Gita is one installment in the Indian Epic the Mahabharata.
