The Bhagavadgita is a part of the great Indian epic the Mahabharata, and it is among the major religious documents of the world, occupying in Hinduism a position not unlike the Sermon at the Mount in Christianity. One of the celebrated treasures of world literature as well, it’s in the type of a poetic dialogue between the epic’s hero, Arjuna, and his friend Krishna, believed to be an incarnation of God.
The dialogue, which takes place at the eve of an historic battle, probes the nature of God and what man must do to achieve him. As the Bhagavadgita unfolds, this majestic poem provides an interesting synopsis of the religious thought and experience of India through the ages. This edition offers the classic English verse translation by Sir Edwin Arnold (1832–1904), long admired for its evocation of the actual feeling of the original poetry.
