This is the biggest selling, most read edition of this 5000 year old classic of world literature. Prabhupada's Gita is also by far the most translated edition of this Sanskrit original. The Bhagavad-Gita is the main source-book on yoga and a concise summary of India's Vedic wisdom. The setting is the ancient battlefield of Kurukshetra, in Northern India. At the last moment before entering a massive battle with almost a million soldiers, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder about the real meaning of his life. Why should he fight against his friends and relatives? Why does he exist? Where is he going after death? In the Bhagavad-Gita, Lord Krsna, Arjuna's friend and spiritual master, brings His disciple from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment. In the course of doing so, Krsna concisely but definitively explains transcendental knowledge; karma-yoga, jnana-yoga, dhyana-yoga, and bhakti-yoga; knowledge of the Absolute; devotional service; the three modes of material nature; the divine and demoniac natures of man, and all the other questions we would all want to ask, and many more we would think of.
