The Bhagavadgita: India's Great Epic

Mahendra Kulasrestha (Editor) Edwin Arnold (Translator)

The Bhagavadgita forms a part of the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata, and consists of 700 verses. It is a dialogue between Arjuna, one of the five Pandavas, and Lord Krishna, who acts as his charioteer. While his armies are arraigned against the armies of the Kauravas, the adversaries of the Pandavas, he falters and asks Krishna how he could kill his own kith and kin and whether such a battle was worthwhile at all. Lord Krishna in this long dialogue gives him the answer. The blind Dhritarashtra, king of the Kaurvas, desires to visit the battle but can not, and Sanjaya gives him a graphic account of the happenings. Throughout the Gita Lord Krishna and Arjuna address each other by different names, which signify the different attributes of the two, and are relevant in particular circumstances.
