Gitas in the Mahabharata and the Puranas
Gitas in the Mahabharata and the Puranas
Description
From the Jacket

This book brings out all the fourteen unexplored Gitas besides the Bhagavad-Gita and the Anugita in the Mahabharata and ten Gitas in the Puranas to the forefront for the sake of researchers in the field of the Bhagavad-Gita. The Gitas in the Mahabharata on the whole differ from those in the Puranas in form and character. There seems to be no set pattern for the Gita in the Mahabharata whereas the later Puranas seems to have added a Gita resembling the Bhagavad-Gita in all its aspects to enhance its value.

The theme of the Gitas in the Mahabharata differs while the theme of the Gitas in the later Puranas in mainly on Religio-Philosophy. Ana analytical and critical study of all these Gitas reveal the difference in the Philosophical thought in the Mahabharata and the later Puranas. Puranic Gitas reveal the impact of the religious movement which was growing during those days. The aim of the Gitas on the whole is to portray one God head as the Supreme and to reveal that all the paths-Karma, Jnana, Bhakti and yoga are equally important and these different paths are intended to suit the motions and character of different categories of people.
