It is estimated that the origins of the &quote;Bhagavad Gita&quote;, a 700 verse Hindu scripture which is part of the larger &quote;Mahabharata&quote; was originally composed as early as the 9th century BC. Ascribed to the Sage Vyasa, the &quote;Bhagavad Gita&quote; is a classic work of Hindu scripture which relates the story of Prince Arjuna who is faced with a decision with serious moral consequence, whether or not to go to war. With the armies arrayed on the battlefield, Arjuna in a moment of hesitation is counseled by Vishnu, the Supreme God, who takes the form of Krishna wearing the disguise of a charioteer. This work along with its larger counterpart the &quote;Mahabharata&quote; has been described as one of the most important works of scripture ever composed. A classic tale of Hindu spirituality, the &quote;Bhagavad Gita&quote; provides great insight into dealing with the morally ambiguous challenges that face us all. This edition has been translated into English prose with an introduction by Kashinath Trimbak Telang.
