This scripture or text is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna (one of the five Pandva Brothers) taking place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra as part of epic Mahabharat. This dialogue happens just before the battle was about to begin and Arjuna was confused, deluded and was in moral dilemma if he should fight against his brothers, uncles, teachers and relatives or not. Lord Krishna counsels Arjuna to follow his Dharma and fulfil his duties as a warrior and take part in war.
Arjuna’s heart was filled with doubt on the battlefield and refused to fight against his enemies, who are his own relatives, beloved friends, and revered teachers, he turns to his charioteer and guide, Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu), for guidance. Krishna explains Arjuna about his duties as a warrior and Prince and elaborates on number of different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies. This refers Gita as a guide to Hindu Dasrshana or view-points on life, karma, dharma and various paths of self-realisation. 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.
