"The soul of the world is in danger. It is a banal truth to write but, nevertheless, it ought to be ceaselessly repeated.

Charu Arora Srivastava Bhagavad Gita is a concise guide to Hindu theology and also as a practical, self-contained guide to life. It represents a summary of the Vedantic and Upanishadic teachings, it is also called "Veda of the Vedas" and "the Upanishad of the Upanishads". Lord Krishna states that the knowledge of Yoga contained in the Gita was first instructed to mankind at the very beginning of their existence as he is the first Purusha the Universe has ever Known.

Ishvara (The Supreme Controller)
Jiva (Living beings/the individualized soul)
Dharma (Duty in accordance with Divine law)
