You probably don't know much about the Bhagavad Gita, except that it is the official 'holy book of the Hindus'. That's a real shame, because it has been India's bestselling book for some 2,500 years! The Bhagavad Gita is basically a conversation between two best friends, Krishna and Arjuna. What makes this conversation unique is that it is happening on a battlefield, just before a massive war starts. What makes this conversation sacred to Hindus is that Krishna reveals along the way that he is actually God.
But what are they talking about? Basically, Arjuna, the best archer in the world, suddenly decides he doesn't want to fight the war. Krishna tells him why he should. That's it. Why read about that? Because Krishna's advice is for anyone who is about to fight any battle, like the ones in our head – Should we do the right thing (which is difficult), or the wrong thing (which is easier and more fun)?
The Bhagavad Gita's lessons are sometimes a little difficult to figure out by yourself. That’s why - ta-daaa! - 'The Gita for Children' is here! Author Roopa Pai has not only decoded many of the Bhagavad Gita's lessons for you, but she has also packed the book with lots of related information and fun facts.
