The Bhagavadgītā (Sanskrit: भगवद्गीता), literally meaning "Song of the Lord", is a poetic scripture written in Sanskrit as part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. It takes the form of a dialogue between prince Arjuna of the Pandava clan and his guide and charioteer Krishna. As Arjuna expresses doubts, and Arjuna explains philosophical concepts to him. The age of the work is uncertain, but many modern scholars accept that it was composed in the fifth or fourth century BCE.
