The Bhagavad Gita according to Swami Vivekananda

To correctly understand the Bhagavad Gita, it is necessary to know, even briefly, the history of the Mahabharata, since the Bhagavad Gita is its central and most important part, and surely no one better than Swami Vivekananda to explain it.

This subject is based on “The history of the Mahabharata” given by Swami Vivekananda in a lecture given at the Shakespeare Club, Pasadena, California, on February 1, 1900 and translated into Spanish by Pedro Nonell.

The Mahabharata (महाभारत, the “Great Epic of the Bharata Dynasty”) is one of the two great Sanskrit epic poems of ancient India (the other being the Ramayana).

Mahâ means “great,” and Bhârata “the descendants of Bharata,” from whom India has derived its name: Bhârata.

This epic is the most popular in India; and it exercises the same authority in India that Homer's poems exercised over the Greeks. As time went by, more and more material was added to it, until it became an enormous work of about one hundred thousand verses.

The central story of the Mahabharata is of a war between two families of cousins, one family, called Kauravas, the other Pandavas, for the empire of India.

In any case, the student must remember that this subject is mainly related to the Bhagavad Gita and not the Mahabharata, therefore it is only a summary of this epic.

The rest of this summary on “Mahabharata according to Swami Vivekananda” (Yoga Philosophy) is only available to students of the Gita Institute
