The Bhagavad-Gita has been an essential text of Hindu culture in India since the time of its composition in the first century A.D. One of the great classics of world literature, it has inspired such diverse thinkers as Henry David Thoreau, Mahatma Gandhi, and T.S. Eliot; most recently, it formed the core of Peter Brook's celebrated production of the Mahabharata.

The book that will put you to the right perspective as you fight the life's battle. It reflects Asian's highest ideal of Family and Religion. From the culture that values peace above all- let the Hindu's Krishna tell you something about War. "Qui desiderat pacem praeparet bellum."
