The Bhagavad-gita is the main source-book on yoga and a concise summary of India's Vedic wisdom. Yet remarkably, the setting for this classic of spiritual literature is an ancient Indian battlefield. At the last moment, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder about the real meaning of his life. In the Bhagavadgita, Lord Krsna brings His disciple from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment. Bhagavad-gita As It Is is the largest-selling, most widely used edition of the Gita in the world.

This book tells the story of the Battle of Kuruksetra or better yet the detailed conversation between Krishna and Arjuna his dear friend. It explains that yoga or linking with the Supreme is the ultimate goal of life. It tells about the mind, intellegence and explains how creation was made from the aspect of the Vedic view. It is a waterfall on the mind of those seeking knowledge of a higher nature. It is a book that was read by Thoreau and Emerson and Ghandi not to mention Einstein himself. This edition touches upon the spirit of bhakti or devotion by linking with the Lord. It was brought to the West by Swami Bhaktivedanta who was a scholar and author of almost a hundred books. This book will keep you amazed and move to towards higher thinking. If thats your sort of thing.
