Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Bhagavad Gita or the Message of the Master: Compiled and Adapted From Numerous Old and New Translations of the Original Sanscrit Text
The "Bhagavad Gita" sometimes called "The Lord's Lay," or the "Message of the Master," is an episode of the great Hindu epic, the Mahabharata, in the Sixth (or "Bhishma") Parva. It enjoys the highest esteem among the Hindu people, and is constantly quoted there as a great authority regarding doctrine. Its philosophy embodies the prevailing Hindu beliefs, as expounded by the Brahmans, and in its teachings it subtly blends into a harmonious whole the varying points of doctrine of Patanjali, Kapila and of the Vedas. It is supposed to have been written by Vyasa whose personality is veiled in doubt for of the time of his existence in the world no record seems to have been kept.
To the reader who finds in this marvelous dialogue merely the record of a literal conversation dressed up in fancy by the Oriental imagination, the real beauty and purpose of the teaching is lost.
