The Bhagavad Gita is one of the oldest and most thoughtful teachings of spirituality in human history. Written by Sage Vyasa- an ancient poet and historian, it narrates the story of Arjuna's confusion and Krishna's invaluable teachings. It is the most important part of the epic poem â€˜The Mahabhaarataâ€™, describing the large battle between two royal clans of the Pandavas and the Kauravas.
Bhagvad Gita begins when the armies are facing each other in the battlefield of Kurukshetra. Arjuna asks Lord Krishna to draw his chariot to the center of the battlefield for him to see all of those whom he would be fighting. Lord Krishnaâ€™s teachings begin when Arjuna, refused to fight his gurus and kin.
Lord Krishna's teaching explains the universal knowledge and the secrets of righteousness and total freedom from suffering. These concepts played a great role in bringing an end to the miseries of Arjuna and helped him perform his real duties
