भगवद् गीता

The Bhagavad Gita ("Song of God") is an important Sanskrit Hindu scripture. It is revered as a sacred scripture of Hinduism, and considered as one of the most important religious classics of the world. The Bhagavad Gita is a part of the Mahabharata, comprising 700 verses. The teacher of the Bhagavad Gita is Krishna, who is regarded by the Hindus as the supreme manifestation of the Lord Himself, and is referred to within as Bhagavan—the divine one. The Bhagavad Gita is commonly referred to as The Gita for short.

One of my favorite lines from the Gita:

As Arjun stood in his chariot looking over the two armies, he said to God, "I will not fight," and laid down his bow and arrows on the ground.

God said, "Only the soul is real and the soul can never be killed. For this reason, Arjun, rise and conquer your enemies."
