The ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhagavad_Gita Bhagavad Gita]]'' (''The Song of God'') is a book within a larger epic based on the conversation in the Hindu Epic ''{{Mahabharata}}'' between {{Warrior Prince}} Arjuna and his charioteer [[GodInHumanForm Krishna]] during the [[CivilWar Kurushetra War]]. Arjuna had to fight his cousin EvilPrince BigBad Duryodhana, his [[TheDragon archnemesis]] [[CainandAbel Karna]], his teacher and mentor [[RageAgainstTheMentor Drona]] and Kuru Patriach and beloved grandfather Bhishma after exhausting all other legal means in order to get back his Kingdom. Arjuna gets a [[HeroicBSOD Hamlet moment]] and is unresolved on whether to take part in the battle and in consequence, kill his kinsmen and teachers on the other side of the war. [[GodWasMyCopilot Krishna]] talks him into [[HonorbeforeReason fighting in the war]] and along the way, talks about subtle philosophy regarding the nature of the soul, the doctrines of yoga, the nature of man and the way to love God. The conversation ends as he shows his real form as God to Arjuna and convinces Arjuna to trust his judgement.

Like the ''Mahabharata'', it is a narrative poem written in Sanskrit and is one of the major books in {{Hindu Mythology}}. Because of its complex subject matter, it is subject to countless [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation interpretations]].

* ShrugOfGod: Was it always part of the Mahabharata, or was it written later and then inserted like a philosophical sandwich? The jury is out on this.
