Shrimad-Bhagavad-Gita is the teaching given by Lord Krishna to his ardent disciple Arjuna just before the great Kurukshetra war. Grieving at the prospect of killing his loved ones, and confused as to his duty, Arjuna requests Lord Krishna to be his Spiritual Teacher.
The Lord then teaches Arjuna the Highest Truth in simple words. He also imparts to him the means to gain this Highest Truth. Lord Krishna shows how, right here and now, the human mind can - and should - be prepared to delve into this Knowledge by right living and right thinking.
Over the shoulders of Arjuna, the Lord reaches out to each and every human being. The Bhagavad-Gita has stood the test of time, and is a practical guide to right living and right thinking. Naturally, it is one of the most widely read scriptures. But since the entire dialogue of the Gita is in Sanskrit, this language needs to be studied. Language implies the study of grammar, and every grammar has its own intricacies. For a general reader, the dual struggle to grasp philosophy and grammar simultaneously may prove too much. Hence this book seeks to provide a ready-made glimpse of Sanskrit grammar as it appears verse by verse in the Gita.
In this book, the 700 verses are first converted into prose, and then the different parts of speech are analysed. Compiled as it is with the help of various books and dictionaries written by scholars, it is a book of reference. May this handy reference-book for Gita and Sanskrit lovers spur readers on to a deeper study of both the scripture and its language.
May the Shrimad-Bhagavad-Gita bless each and every human being with the Highest Knowledge, right here and now.
