Audio Book Summary
The Bhagavat Gita is one of the main religious literature in the Hindu way of life. It contains about 700 verses divided into 18 cantos. It is the essence of the philosophy contained in the Upanishads and is a part of the Mahabharata which describes the story of the Pandavas and the Kouravas. The development of the various incidents in the life of the Pandavas and the Kouravas ultimately leads to the war in Kurukshetra wherein the Pandavas finally win the battle.
When Arjuna, the great warrior of the Pandava brothers sees the Kourava army in the battlefield, he is overwhelmed with concern because they are all his kinsmen. He gets terrified. Not because of fear of battle but because of emotions. Krishna who is the incarnation of the Almighty God was acting as his charioteer. Arjuna tells Krishna, ‘My limbs give way. My mouth is getting parched. I feel shaky. My bow slips from my hand. My skin burns all over. My mind is whirling as though I cannot hold on to myself. I see evil portends.’
A conversation ensues between Krishna and Arjuna and this conversation is the Bhagawat Gita.
This audio book is primarily a recitation of the verses of the Gita. A brief synopsis of each canto is also given before its actual recitation. I am simultaneously publishing this also as a book which will be available in the market place of major booksellers.
This audio book is divided into three sections, each containing six cantos. This is the first section containing cantos 1 to 6.
