Knowledge about essential elements of faith and spirituality of Hinduism and understanding for the basic texts of this tradition

No Hindu scripture should have been so often translated as the famous Bhagavad Gita, usually rendered "Song of the Blessed One."

The Gita is a small part of the epic Mahabharata. It is sometimes referred to as the "gospel" of the Hindus, and is in any case well as an introduction to the faith and spirituality of the Hindus.
