The Bhagavad Gita is one of the great religious classics of the world and one of the most translated next to the Bible. The story concerns the plight of Arjuna, the commander of an army, who must fight  a war. After seeing his friends and kinsmen on the opposing side, Arjuna tells Krishna, his friend and spiritual guide, that he won't fight, even though it's his duty.

Krishna's reply deals not only with Arjuna's problem of whether or not to fight a just war, but with with questions that concern all of us. How should we deal with our problems in a hostile world? Why is there misery? Why do we exist? Krishna goes to heart of these matters to help solve our most difficult problems. Yet, there is no one answer.

From Chapter X - 'Divine Glory' (p. 107):


" I am where all things began, the issuing-forth of the creatures. Known to the wise in their love when they worship with hearts overflowing:

Mind and sense are absorbed, I alone am the theme of their discourse: Thus delighting each other, they live in bliss and contentment.

Always aware of their Lord are they, and ever devoted: Therefore the strength of their thought is illumined and guided toward me. 

There in the ignorant heart where I dwell, by the grace of my mercy, I am knowledge, that brilliant lamp, dispelling its darkness. "
