Bhagavad Gita Quotes

Srimad Bhagavad Gita, also referred to as Song of God, is one of Hinduism’s crucial religious texts. It is also called as Gita and is main part of the epic mythology-Mahabharata. The Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Pandava’s prince-Arjuna from the battleground of Mahabharata.

On the battleground, Arjuna denies fighting against Kauravas as he did not want to shed blood of his cousins and friends with whom he has grown up; on hearing this, Lord Krishna shared life-changing lessons for Karma, death, success, etc. with Arjuna to encourage him to lead the battle without worrying for its outcome.

Gita combines the concept of two central texts of Hinduism that are Upanishads and Vedas. The books instruct that one should elevate the soul and mind to look beyond appearances, which fools individuals into believing multiplicity and duality and recognize them as an illusion.

The Gita culminates in the understanding of prince Arjuna about the nature of existence, his place in the cosmic order, and why he has to be part of the battle. Here we have listed Bhagavad Gita Quotes on Karma, success, life, death, etc.
