Introduction to Bhagavad-gita

Introduction to Bhagavad-gita

The Song of God
by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Edition specific:

In 1968 Srila Prabhupada did not have the funds to print his full Bhagavad-gita As It Is. Therefore he printed the Introduction as a pamphlet. This is the reprint of the original pamphlet.


This is the Introduction from the front matter of Bhagavad-gita As It Is.

Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India’s spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries.
