The Summary of Bhagavad-Gita
The Gita or the Bhagavat Gita as it is popularly known in Hinduism, is a set of lessons that were taught to the Pandava
Warrior Arjuna on the eve of the battle of Kurukshetra. It forms a part of the great story of Mahabharata. The lessons are
given to Arjuna by Lord Krishna, who is considered to be the ninth avatar of Lord Vishnu. On the eve of the battle, Arjuna,
facing a huge army and looking at the enemies, decides that he will not fight his own cousins in battle and kill anyone even
in the course of war. Lord Krishna then teaches Arjuna on the conduct of a warrior and how Arjuna would be failing in his
duties as a warrior by not fighting his cousins, who failed to protect Dharma and uphold justice. Lord Krishna's teaching
include how a man must do his duty and protect dharma and fight evil so that goodness and justice always prevail over the
lands. Lord Krishna's discourse is given as eighteen chapters in the Bhagavad Gita. They include guidelines on living a pure
and happy life, enriching ones spiritual needs and showing the means to attain God.
