In the course of his life and teachings, there are some hard truths, none more difficult that ones he imparts to Arjuna on the eve of the cosmically epic battle between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, who cheated the Pandavas out of their inheritance with loaded dice. Someone forgot to tell Duryodhana what goes around comes around.

Oct 14, Jason rated it liked it Shelves: I read the Bhavagad Gita in college and learned about Krishna through his words, but this is the first I've read the stories he's associated with. It was interesting to note a few similarities between his birth and the birth of Christ. It was also wearying reading all the time about people having to fight for duty or honor all the time when you are a believer in peace.
