The Bhagavad Gita, sometimes called easily the Gita, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture in Sanskrit that's a part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata (chapters 25 - forty two of the sixth booklet of Mahabharata).
The Gita is decided in a story framework of a discussion among Pandava prince Arjuna and his advisor and charioteer Lord Krishna.
Facing the obligation as a warrior to struggle the Dharma Yudhha or righteous struggle among Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is counselled via Lord Krishna to "fulfill his Kshatriya (warrior) responsibility as a warrior and determine Dharma."
Inserted during this attract kshatriya dharma (chivalry) is "a discussion ... among diverging attitudes bearing on equipment towards the attainment of liberation (moksha)".
The Bhagavad Gita was once uncovered to the area via Sanjaya, who senses and cognises the entire occasions of the battlefield. Sanjaya is Dhritarashtra's consultant and in addition his charioteer.
The Bhagavad Gita offers a synthesis of the idea that of Dharma, theistic bhakti, the yogic beliefs of moksha via jnana, bhakti, karma, and Raja Yoga (spoken of within the sixth bankruptcy) and Samkhya philosophy.
