This early edition of the Bhagavad Gita is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. As a part of the ancient Sanskrit epic Mahabharata it is an important Hindu scripture detailing a conversation between Krishna and Arjuna on yoga, moksha, divine glory and other fundamentals of Hinduism. This fascinating work is thoroughly recommended for Hindus and those interested in the philosophies of the religion. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

The Bhagavad Gita, or the song of God, was revealed by Lord Shree Krishna to Arjun on the threshold of the epic war of Mahabharata. A decisive battle between two sets of cousins, the Kauravas and the Pandavas, was just about to commence on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. A detailed account of the reasons that led to such a colossal war is given under Introduction-The Setting of the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita is primarily a conversation between Lord Shree Krishna and Arjun. Yet, the first chapter begins with a dialogue between King Dhritarashtra and his minister Sanjay. Dhritarashtra being blind, could not leave his palace in Hastinapur but was eager to know the ongoings of the battlefield. Sanjay was a disciple of Sage Ved Vyas, the author of the epic Mahabharata and several other Hindu scriptures. Sage Ved Vyas possessed a mystic ability to see and hear events occurring in distant places. He had bestowed upon Sanjay the miraculous power of distant vision. Therefore, Sanjay could see and hear what transpired on the battleground of Kurukshetra, and gave a first-hand account to King Dhritarashtra, while still being in his palace.

The Bhagavad Gita is widely revered as one of the greatest jewels of spiritual wisdom in the history of humankind. It is also known as Gitopanishad, or the Gita Upanishad, as it encapsulates most of the important aspects of the knowledge of the Vedas. Bhagavad means "of God" and Gita means "song." Hence, the Bhagavad Gita literally means "Song of God." It describes the divine dialogue that took place between the Supreme Lord Shree Krishna and his devotee Arjun on the battle ground. Since its teachings are exceedingly profound, the Bhagavad Gita required an equally insurmountable crisis as its setting. This was the impending war of Mahabharat that threatened to engulf the whole of India at that time. Unable to deal with the immediate problem at hand, Arjun approached Shree Krishna for a palliative to overcome the anguish he was experiencing. Shree Krishna did not just advise him on his immediate problem, but digressed to give a profound discourse on the philosophy of life. Hence, the Bhagavad Gita imparts, above everything else, Brahma Vidya, the science of God-realization. However, it is not content with providing a lofty philosophical understanding; it describes clear-cut techniques for implementing its spiritual precepts for everyday life. These techniques of applying the science of spirituality in our lives are termed "Yog." The Bhagavad Gita is also called "Yog Shastra," meaning, the scripture that teaches the practice of Yog. Thus, all its eighteen chapters are designated as different types of Yog because they deal with methodologies for the application of spiritual knowledge to practical life. In this authoritative commentary, Swami Mukundananda reveals the original meanings of the verses with crystal clear explanations and perfect logic. Adopting a comprehensive approach, he intersperses his purports with illustrative stories and real-life examples to make the teachings easy to comprehend and implement in everyday living.

The Song of God (Bhagavad Gita) is the quintessential Hindu scripture. This remarkable dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, the most accomplished warrior on the Pandava side, has been acclaimed as the most precious guide on human action and behaviour. Mahatma Gandhi, the greatest exponent of nonviolence in modern times, considered it his Bible, though, on the face of it, it is an exhortation to fight a war. Lord Krishna talks about the different aspects of life and death, action and inaction, devotion and worship, meditation and renunciation and even about different types of food that influence human nature. This translation has tried to present the holy words in simple English so that the average English reader can get a glimpse of the subtleties of Indian philosophy.

This famous and marvellous Sanskrit poem occurs as an episode of the Mahabharata, in the sixth--or "Bhishma"--Parva of the great Hindoo epic. It enjoys immense popularity and authority in India, where it is reckoned as one of the "Five Jewels" of Devanagiri literature. In plain but noble language it unfolds a philosophical system which remains to this day the prevailing Brahmanic belief, blending as it does the doctrines of Kapila, Patanjali, and the Vedas.

Motivation of This Book: - This is the simplified version of the great Hindu scripture 'Bhagavad Gita'.- The author endeavoured to present all the Shlokas in simple language.- Anyone can easily understand.- Further, all the 701 Shlokas are presented in chat discussion mode.- As being presented in chat discussion mode, the user experience is expected to be good.- It can be read and understood by all the people irrespective of colour, country, race, religion, sex and age.- The Author believes that the Bhagavad Gita, that is available in the common public domain, may be difficult for the reader to understand the content. So, the Author tried to make it in simple language without changing the essence of Bhagavad Gita.About Bhagavad Gita: - Bhagavad Gita is the Supreme Hindu text. This is often referred to as 'The Song Of God. This is part of the great epic 'Mahabharata'. This is seen in the chapters 23 - 40 of Bhisma Parva of Mahabharata. It has 701 Shlokas [verse].- Bhagavad Gita event took place at the Kuruksetra battlefield just prior to the commencement of the war. It is predominantly a holy discussion between the Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide & charioteer Sri Bhagavan Krishna. At the start of the war between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna saw the armies of the both sides in Kuruksetra. Both the sides included his fathers, grandfathers, teachers, maternal uncles, brothers, sons, grandsons, friends, father-in-law, and well-wishers. By seeing this, Arjuna got confused whether he needs to engage in war or not. He became distressed with much grief.- The thinking Arjuna had was, 'Is it moral to kill, that too to kill his own kinsmen for the sake of getting the kingdom and the pleasure?'. He raised these questions to Sri Bhagavan Krishna. Further, he said to Sri Bhagavan Krishna that he will not engage in war in citing these and many more dilemmas of life including the divine and sinful actions. So, he looked upto Sri Bhagavan Krishna 's counsel. This turned out to be a Holy discussion.- The setting up of the war, Arjuna's questions, Sri Bhagavan Krishna 's answers and the whole narration of their discussions constitute the whole of Bhagavad Gita.

A Verse Translation of the Bhagavad-Gita, with Commentary

A fresh, strikingly immediate and elegant verse translation of the classic, with an introduction and helpful guides to each section, by the rising American poet. Born in the United States into a secularized Hindu family, Amit Majmudar puzzled over the many religious traditions on offer, and found that the Bhagavad Gita had much to teach him with its "song of multiplicities." Chief among them is that "its own assertions aren't as important as the relationships between its characters . . . The Gita imagined a relationship in which the soul and God are equals"; it is, he believes, "the greatest poem of friendship . . . in any language." His verse translation captures the many tones and strategies Krishna uses with Arjuna--strict and berating, detached and philosophical, tender and personable. "Listening guides" to each section follow the main text, and expand in accessible terms on the text and what is happening between the lines. Godsong is an instant classic in the field, from a poet of skill, fine intellect, and--perhaps most important--devotion.

During the centuries in which Buddhism was establishing itself in the east of India, the older Brahmanism in the west was undergoing the changes which resulted in the Hinduism which is now the prevailing religion of India. The main ancient sources of information with regard to these Hindu beliefs and practises are the two great epics, the "Ramayana" and the Maha Bharata. The former is a highly artificial production based on legend and ascribed to one man, Valmiki. The latter, a "huge conglomera-tion of stirring adventure, legend, myth, history, and supersti-tion," is a composite production, begun probably as early as the fourth or fifth century before Christ, and completed by the end of the sixth century of our era. It represents many strata of religious belief. The Bhagavad-Gita, of which a translation is here given, occurs as an episode in the Maha-Bharata, and is regarded as one of the gems of Hindu literature. The poem is a dialogue between Prince Arjuna, the brother of King Yudhisthira, and Vishnu, the Supreme God, incarnated as Krishna, and wearing the disguise of a charioteer. The conversation takes place in a war-chariot, stationed between the armies of the Kauravas and Pandavas, who are about to engage in battle. To the Western reader much of the discussion seems childish and illogical; but these elements are mingled with passages of undeniable sublimity. Many of the more puzzling inconsistencies are due to interpolations by later re-writers. "It is," says Hopkins, "a medley of beliefs as to the relation of spirit and matter, and other secondary matters; it is uncertain in its tone in regard to the comparative efficacy of action and inaction, and in regard to the practical man's means of salvation; but it is at one with itself in its fundamental thesis, that all things are each a part of one Lord, that men and gods are but manifestations of the One Divine Spirit."--from the Translator, Edwin Arnold. This famous translation of the beloved Bhagavad Gita is both poetic and inspiring. A timeless classic.
