About the Book

The Bhagavadgita holds an assured place among the world's great scriptures. It is one of the most brilliant and pure gems of our ancient sacred books. It would be difficult to find a simpler work in Sanskrit literature or even in all the literature of the world than the Gita, which explains to us in an unambiguous and succinct manner the deep and sacred principles of the sacred science of the Self (Atman), etc.
