Krishna's book - the Bhagavad-gita

The Bhagavad-gita ("song of God")—the famous conversation between the warrior Arjuna and the Supreme Being, Krishna—posing as Arjuna’s charioteer—at the onset of the battle of Kurukshetra, circa 3200 B.C.

Krishna explains all the essential spiritual truths: the difference between the soul and the body, the difference between the soul and the Supreme Soul (God), the science of reincarnation, the nature of time, the ultimate goal of yoga, why different kinds of religion appeal to different kinds of people, and the ultimate purpose of human life.

Did Krishna recite the Bhagavad-gita as a representative for a higher impersonal truth? Or is He himself that truth?

The word "dharma" has been absorbed from Sanskrit into common English. But when Krishna says "dharma," what He's really talking about?

Originally published in Back to Godhead Magazine, here is a compressed, distilled version of the Bhagavad-gita—on a single Web page! (some scrolling required).
