The Bhagavad Gita is the word of God. The Bhagavad Gita is an episode in the epic Mahabharata written by Sage Vyasa more than 5000 years ago. It is the divine conversation between Arjuna and God himself in the human form - Lord Krishna, which took place in Kurukshetra. The wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita helped Arjuna lead the Pandavas to victory and restore peace. These teachings have also inspired and enlightened us through the ages and even today remain a great source of wisdom.
