What is Bhagavad-Gita?
The Bhagavad-Gita (also known as Bhagavad-Gita, Bhagawadgita or simply as The Geeta) is a spiritual verse in Sanskrit language composed around the first century B.C to first century A.D. It encapsulates the essence of profound philosophies of Hinduism in a simple form, and is widely chanted by the devotees.
The poem is set as a war-time conversation between Lord Krishna and his relative, warrior Arjuna during the epic war of Mahabharata, and consists of eighteen chapters. During the last two thousand years many great sages and saints have provided review and commentaries of the Bhagavad-Gita, which by itself is a very short and concise masterpiece.
The influence of Bhagavad-Gita on Hindu philosophy and culture is huge.
