The Bhagavad Gita literally meaning The Song of the Bhagavan, often referred to as simply the Gita, is a 700-verseHindu scripture that is part of the Vedic epic Mahabharata.
The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandavaprince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Krishna. Facing the duty as a warrior to fight the Dharma Yudhha or righteous war between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is counselled by Krishna to "fulfill his Kshatriya (warrior) duty as a warrior and establishing Dharma." Inserted in this appeal to kshatriya dharma (chivalry) is "a dialogue between diverging attitudes concerning and methods toward the attainment of liberation (moksha)".
The Bhagavad Gita presents a synthesis of the Brahmanical concept of Dharma, theistic bhakti, yogic ideas, jnana, bhakti, karma, and Raja Yoga.
