It is at such times that many of us turn towards the sacred scriptures of the world for guidance. Among the ancient scriptures of India, the Bhagavad Gita holds a special place. Rich with spiritual insights and wisdom its message is universal. For centuries it has been a vast source of inspiration to all those seeking spiritual guidance.
