To be taught by Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, it will provide a glimpse into this philosophical and intensely spiritual poem, often considered the epitome of Hinduism. A dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, just before the beginning of the great Mahabharata war, it has been commented by hundreds of authors and translated into all major languages of the world.
Besides being the cornerstone of Hindu faith, Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord) is also one of the masterpieces of Sanskrit poetry in which Lord Krishna gives spiritual enlightenment to the warrior Arjuna, who realizes that the true battle is for his own soul. Its seven hundred verses in 18 chapters consider the nature of action, the religious and social duty, the human relationship to God, the means of liberation, and the nature of sacrifice, etc., Zed adds.
