A great battle is about to break out between two warring sets of cousins. The Pandava prince Arjuna, a mighty warrior, surveys the battlefield. Suddenly he finds himself gazing on the faces of the friends and family that he must now fight. Deeply conflicted Arjuna casts down his weapons and calls on the council of his charioteer Krishna. So begins the Bhagavad Gita... The Bhagavad Gita is the foundational text of the Hindu faith and one of the most widely read religious works in the world. Mahatma Gandhi famously described it as his spiritual dictionary. It holds a universal appeal which sweeps away boundaries of all types, be they spiritual or secular, temporal or spatial.
Krishna Dvaipāyana, also known as Vyasa and Veda Vyāsa, is a Vedic rishi. He is best known as the traditional author of the Mahabharata, one of the two most important epics of Hinduism. He is also credited as the traditional compiler of the Vedas, as well as the writer of other important works including the Puranas.
