This book is an illustrated version of the original Indian Poetry by Sir Edwin Arnold. “I know where Krishna tarries in these early days of Spring, When every wind from warm Malay brings fragrance on its wing; Brings fragrance stolen far away from thickets of the clove, In jungles where the bees hum and the Koil flutes her love; He dances with the dancers of a merry morrice one, All in the budding Spring-­time, for 'tis sad to be alone. I know how Krishna passes these hours of blue and gold When parted lovers sigh to meet and greet and closely hold Hand fast in hand; and every branch upon the Vakul-­tree Droops downward with a hundred blooms, in every bloom a bee; He is dancing with the dancers to a laughter-­moving tone, In the soft awakening Spring-­time, when 'tis hard to live alone. “

The Bhagavad Gita (The Song Celestial) is a conversation between Krishna and Arjuna taking place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra just prior to the start of a climactic war. Responding to Arjuna’s confusion and moral dilemma, Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and Prince and elaborates on a number of different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies. This has led to the Gita often being described as a concise guide to Hindu philosophy and also as a practical, self-­contained guide to life. During the discourse, Krishna reveals his identity as the Supreme Being Himself (Bhagavan), blessing Arjuna with an awe-­inspiring glimpse of His divine absolute form.
