The reader will be highly impressed with the colorful illustrations of each chapter, along with fine drawings of each verse. The book comes with a giant pull-out poster, showing Lord Krishna in the middle and each chapters of the Bhagavad-Gita.
The poster will be a great addition for a study-room wall paintings.

Bhagavad-gita is the song of God, sung by Lord Krishna to His friend and disciple Arjuna. We may sometimes wonder that if there is a God, what would He look like? To answer all such speculations, Lord Krishna came to this world 5000 years ago and showed everyone His beautiful form and amazing pastimes. We may question, why would God want to come to this mortal world?
About 500 years ago one king named Akbar asked the same question of his minister Birbal who was a greatly learned scholar. Birbal did not answer at once but waited for some time. One day the king’s small grandson fell into a pond and was drowning. The king quickly took off all his fine ornaments and clothes and jumped into the water to save his small grandson.
In the same way, Lord Krishna comes here to speak words of wisdom that will save us from our anxieties and sufferings in this world and to attract us to join with Him in His eternal pastimes in the world of transcendence. In Bhagavad-gita, Krishna speaks not only to Arjuna, but to all people in all countries, of all religions and for all times. Krishns claima all of us, even the animals, as His own. In Bhagavad-gita, Krishna shows His concern for us by giving us advice how to live happily in this world and beyond. Sincere seekers will find in Bhagavad-gita eternal principles of truth that illuminate life’s journey.
Those who face great challenges in life will find solutions to problems and great meaning and purpose to life. Krishna’s words in Bhagavad-gita give nourishment for the mind, solace to the heart and help us to face life with renewed enthusiasm and hope.
Many of the artists who were present at the time when our beloved spiritual master Srila Prabhupada was on this earth are aware of a cherished desire which he expressed to them. Srila Prabhupada wanted that his artists paint a picture to illustrate each verse of the Bhagavad-gita. In this book we have endeavored to fulfill this desire of Srila Prabhupada. In some cases, we have also included the purport of the verse within the picture. We hope that the readers will enjoy reading each verse in poetic form along with its illustration.
