Introduction to the Bhagavad Gita
The Bhagavad Gītā is part of a larger epic story called the Mahābhārata, which is core to the fabric of Indian Culture and history. Written in story form, the Bhagavad Gītā is a parable that lays out clear groundwork for making decisions and seeing the context in which we occupy situations in which we find ourselves.
Through the lens of one man’s story with a very concrete example of facing what appears to be an impossible decision, the Bhagavad Gita is the story of the decision the man ultimately makes and why. It is the why in this story that is the context of all Yoga Practice.
