Srimad Bhagwad Gita, available in hardcover, is a religious Hindu scripture with 700 verses. It's a part of Mahabharata, the great Hindu epic. The book is in the form of a narrative. The dialogue between Arjuna, one of the Pandavas and his charioteer, Lord Krishna, is beautifully narrated. It describes how Arjuna faces difficulties on the battlefield when he sees his relatives, friends and teacher on the other side of the impending war. His hesitation is sensed by Lord Krishna, who then advises Arjuna on various topics.Krishna reminds Arjuna that he is a Kshatriya, a warrior, which makes it his foremost duty to kill when necessary. He teaches him the different attitudes and methods, which when followed can help a person attain liberation, or moksha. Srimad Bhagavad Gita provides readers with a text that is a blend of the concept of Dharma, Bhakti, the yogic liberation ideals through Jnana and the Samkhya philosophy.Sanjay is the charioteer and counsellor of the Kuru King Dhritarashtra. The book is presented as a recital by Sanjaya while he describes the ongoings of the war to the king. The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is therefore Sanjay's recital of the dialogues that passed between Lord Krishna and Arjuna. The book contains 18 chapters.
