Overview

Over thousands of years, Bhagavad-Gita has inspired millions of people. Its powerful message of hope and enlightenment lifts the reader above the petty and temporal. The wisdom of the Gita leads to  dimensions beyond ordinary education and enables one to analyze and understand life in a revolutionary  way.
       Bhagavad-Gita means “the song (Gita) of God (Bhagavan).” Readers the world over consider the Bhagavad-Gita the most important book of the Vedic literature---the vast body of ancient Sanskrit texts including and referring to the Vedas. The Bhagavad-Gita is itself but one short chapter of the Mahabharata, a book so lengthy that Guinness calls it the world's longest. Yet in its short seven hundred verses, Bhagavad-Gita distills the wisdom of all the Vedas.
