Holy scriptures of Hinduism

Ravish Mehra and family

The Bhagavad Gita, often referred to as the Gita, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the epic Mahabharata, dated to the second half of the first millennium BCE and is typical of the Hindu synthesis. It is considered to be one of the holy scriptures for Hinduism ( in terms of both literature and philosophy) and is more than 2200 years old, and now it is preserved in AWA for the next millenium.
