 Overview

About the Book:

Bhagwad Gita, the repository of great wisdom has been variously described, as a phenomenal philosophical document, a motivational treatise, the firth Veda, the song-divine etc. Indeed it is all of these and much more.

A closer examination will also reveal its hidden lyrical and rhythmic beauty. Each of its seven hundred Shlokas, have been written in the form of a verse and ll of them are steeped in the traditions of Indian classical music. All verses have the same meter and they hav3e been composed in such a way that makes them eminently amenable to the rigors of Sur and Taal. Sanskrit in Gita is not in a narrative form and can not therefore be read as a story.
