Welcome to "The Teachings of Bhagavad Gita" homepage. The Bhagavad Gita is a discourse between the Pandava prince Arjuna and the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Shri Krishna set during the beginning of the Mahabharata war. Lord Shri Krishna instructs his most beloved friend Arjuna in the science of self realization.
The Bhagavad Gita holds an important place in Hindu lives. Compelling questions about the personal and impersonal aspects of Godhead asked by Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita represent the pervasive confusion and curiosity of the common man toward God. Furthermore, it also describes life and death as a process of coninuity through transmigration of the soul. The Bhagavad Gita also explains the laws of cause and effect, also known as karma.
An authoritative scripture of Vedic culture, the Bhagavad Gita discusses subjects of universal value and answers questions like: "What is creation, it's ingredients, and purpose?" ,"What is the nature of the soul?", "What comes of our actions, divine or devilish?" and "What is the process of liberation from the material world?". The Teachings of Bhagavad Gita describes the Supreme Lord, our relationship with Him, and the path to reaching Him. In this 400 page treatise on the Bhagavad Gita, I have quoted numerous verses from Vedic literature as evidence. I express no views of my own, rather, the reader will find his own answers throughout this book. Please click on the above links to read excerpts from the book.
