The Bhagavad Gita, often referred to as simply the Gita, literally means The Song of the Bhagavan and is a 700-verse sacred Hindu text that constitutes a section of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The Gita essentially narrates the dialogue between the prince Arjuna and his guide, Lord Krishna. Krishna instructs Arjuna to fulfil his Kṣatriya duty as a warrior and kill his relatives, and what follows is a dialogue of diverging attitudes concerning the attainment of liberation. After its translation by western scholars in the early 18th century, the Gita began to grow in popularity and is considered one of the most culturally influential texts ever written. This timeless ancient book is a must-have for any discerning collector or student of Hinduism, providing a richly informative and engaging text accessible to all. Annie Besant (1847 -1933) was a British socialist, women's rights activist, theosophist, orator and writer. This text has been chosen for digitisation because of its cultural value and is proudly republished here with an introductory biography of the author.
