Purushottama Lal (tr) (in). The Bhagavad Gita (BG) is the core sacred text of the Hindu tradition of India, & was influential for the great leader Mahatma Gandhi. It enshrines the values of the Vedic, Upanishadic & epic traditions -- shruti (the revealed) & smriti (the remembered). Its structure is informal question & answer; its mode is enquiry & search; its goal is self-discovery & spiritual illumination. The BG, a section within the epic war story, the Mahabharata, begins with the refusal of Arjuna to fight. Krishna provides the kickstart by stressing the imperative need to act. Arjuna, stricken by sorrow, swirling in indecisionís quicksand, throws away his bow & quiver, & slumps down on his war chariot. Also includes an introduction to the major themes of the BG. Sanskrit & English texts.
