The Hindu religion is filled with important texts that have influenced thought across the world, but the Bhagavad Gita is regarded by many as the single most influential philosophical text shaping spiritual thought and life. Often referred to simply as the Gita, the Bhagavad Gita is a verse portion of the epic Hindu work, the Mahabharate. Because the battlefield setting is usually interpreted as an allegory for the ethical and moral struggles of life, the Bhagavad Gita serves an ultimate guide to self-realization. It reveals the essential nature of man, his environment, and his relationship with the Almighty, like no other work. The teaching of the Bhagavad Gita is said to free you from all sense of limitation.
