THE BHAGAVAD GITA

The Bhagavad Gita (Song of the Lord) is a dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna as the Kurukshetra War is about to begin. The Gita itself forms one part of the Mahabharata, which tells the story of the epic struggle, and eventual battle between the Pandavas, and the Kauravas.

Arjuna is faced with moral and ethical dilemmas over with war and turns to his charioteer Krishna and asks for his advice.

The Bhagavad Gita then continues with Arjuna’s questions regarding his dilemmas over war and killing, with Krishna’s guidance based on the concepts of Yoga, which is set over 18 chapters.
