This is an auction for THE BHAGAVAD GITA: THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD SHRI KRISHNA.

Translated by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Offered with a second book by Swami Prabupada: "The Science of Realisation".

Amazon.com review:

"The Bhagavad Gita is the famous epic of India, embodying the timeless and universal ideal of spiritual warriorship. In this great classic, often called the Gospel of Hinduism, the god Krishna teaches the warrior Arjuna that freedom lies in disciplined action performed without attachment and with loving reliance on the Supreme Self of all."

From Wikipedia:

"The Bhagavad Gita, often referred to as simply the Gita, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture in Sanskrit that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Lord Krishna. Facing the duty as a warrior to fight the Dharma Yudhha or righteous war between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is counselled by Lord Krishna to "fulfil his Kshatriya (warrior) duty as a warrior and establish Dharma." Inserted in this appeal to kshatriya dharma (chivalry) is "a dialogue ... between diverging attitudes concerning methods toward the attainment of liberation". The setting of the Gita in a battlefield has been interpreted as an allegory for the ethical and moral struggles of the human life. The Bhagavad Gita's call for selfless action inspired many leaders of the Indian independence movement including Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Gandhi referred to the Gita as his "spiritual dictionary"..."
