The largest-selling edition of the Gita in the Western world, Bhagavad-gita As It Is, is more than a book. This book is written in Kannada and gives knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of his life? Where is he going after death? In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path.
The Bhagavad-gita is highly recommended for anyone interested in spirituality and the meaning of life. One of the world's best known literatures, it is often considered the essence of all wisdom. It's a conversation between the military hero Arjuna and his friend/advisor/charioteer Krishna, spoken just before the apocalyptic Battle of Kurukshetra. Subjects they discuss include the eternality of the self, destiny, the source of our being, and how to achieve genuine, long-term peace and happiness.
