The Bhagavad Gita is a timeless treasure chest of pricelsess gems! This divine masterpiece literary jewel and treasure trove of knowledge spoken and authored by Shri Krishna Himself thousands of years ago lives on as an eternally living embodiment of the Lord and his eternal wisdom.

Just one shloka can open the doors to the depth and dimension of the spiritual knowledge in the art of living and finding true happiness.
