Bhagavad Gita

Bhagavad Gita appears as an episode in the epic Sanskrit history of the ancient world: Mahabharat. The Mahabharat tells of events leading up to the present Age of Kali. It was at the begining of this age, some fifty centuries ago, the Lord Krishna spoke Bhagavad Gita to His friend and devotee Arjun.

Their discourse – one of the greatest philosophical and religious dialogues known to man – took place just before the onset of the war, a great fratricidal conflict between the hundred sons of Dhrtarastra and on the opposite side their cousins the Pandavas or sons of Pandu.

Bhagavad Gita is also known as Gitopanishad. It is the essense of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important Upanishads in Vedic literature.
