CHAPTER I

Dhritirashtra: Ranged thus for battle on the sacred plain-- On Kurukshetra--say, Sanjaya! say What wrought my people, and the Pandavas?

Sanjaya: When he beheld the host of Pandavas, Raja Duryodhana to Drona drew, And spake these words: "Ah, Guru! see this line, How vast it is of Pandu fighting-men, Embattled by the son of Drupada, Thy scholar in the war! Therein stand ranked Chiefs like Arjuna, like to Bhima chiefs, Benders of bows; Virata, Yuyudhan, Drupada, eminent upon his car, Dhrishtaket, Chekitan, Kasi's stout lord, Purujit, Kuntibhoj, and Saivya, With Yudhamanyu, and Uttamauj Subhadra's child; and Drupadi's;-all famed! All mounted on their shining chariots! On our side, too,--thou

I soak myself to enlighten and to strengthen myself, with the principles laid in Gita. This is the best of Hinduism to humanity and serves as purpose to serve the god and understand truth.

I'm giving this an excellent rating because I'm not judging it at it's face value; but as an attempt spiritual insight. Spiritual is the key and faith is the lock. If you know Jesus Christ the spirit of truth you have in you, then you know that you and God are connected so receive it and be blessed.

"P.S: Dont ever judge the Gita to be a manual of Hinduism. please this might be the gravest mistake u might ever make. It has hardly anything to do with religion.
Unlike any other spiritual text which rely on making you repent for your "sins". The Gita professes the theory of happiness no matter what u did in your life.


If you have ever been searching for happiness .... the Gita is the final n best advice one can give you."

Repent menans to change your mind and follow after truth. Sin means you are missing the out on God's favor (Karma).

really soul touching

Bhagavadgita is the best thing that has happened to humanity. While the other religious books seperate people into different sections and teach you that salvation is gauranteed to you if you follow a particular path and whoever does not believe in it go to hell, Bhagavadgita addresses humanity and there are no conditions and compulsions.

Bhagavadgita is more scientific than religious. This is not confined to a religion. Despite the best efforts of Edvin Arnold, it is impossible to carry the same beauty of Gita into English translation as it is in the original, but i must congratulate Mr. Arnold for it appears to be the best translation of Gita in English.

The Bhagavad Gita is undoubtedly the best philosophy of life there can ever be. Please don't look at it as a manual of Hinduism, rather the gita always empowers you by making u believe in yourself than any thing else.


There haev been many translations by many people, the famous and the most sought after being =


"God Talks With Ajuna: The Bhagavad Gita a New translation and Meaning" By sri Paramhansa Yogananda ;This edition is the most modern and scientific interpretation there ever is.
Even "the holy Geeta" by Chinmayananda is a wonderful book for the youth .


I would sincerely Recommend You to read this or any version of it, it will change your life, and transform you totally.
the transforation guarenteed by gita is permanent. It is not what You would experience by reading countless western self-help books.


By far the Gita is the BEST self-help book there ever was n there ever will be.


P.S: Dont ever judge the Gita to be a manual of Hinduism. please this might be the gravest mistake u might ever make. It has hardly anything to do with religion.
Unlike any other spiritual text which rely on making you repent for your "sins". The Gita professes the theory of happiness no matter what u did in your life.

The epic battle of Mahabarata has Lord Krishna giving The Bhagavad Gita as his message to Arjuna. The verses are full of deep meaning and are forever enlightening. Everytime you read the Gita, one learns something new! Its that powerful.


The English translation is a good effort. But I would love to see a version with the original Sanskrit verses translated into Hindi.
