The Bhagavad Gita is one of the great spiritual classics from the East. Its title can be translated literally as "The Song of God" or "The Lord’s Song." In the Gita, a long conversation (18 chapters) takes place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra between the charioteer Krishna and the warrior Arjuna. Krishna symbolizes the Divine while Arjuna symbolizes the struggling soul. The plain of Krukshetra is a metaphor for the battlefield of life. Another interpretation of the characters Krishna and Arjuna is that they represent the higher Self and the lower self, respectively. The Gita has a universal message that transcends time and place. 1972. 49 minutes.
