THE BOOK ITSELF COMPRISING 18 CHAPTERS FORMS AN INTEGRAL PART OF A MUCH BIGGER WORK THE GREAT EPIC MAHABHARATA IT IS A POETICAL WORK IN THE FORM OF A DIALOGUE BETWEEEN  SRI KRISHNA AND ARJUN ON THE BATTLE FIELD OF KURUKSETRA THE SETTING OF THE BATTLEFIELD CONTRIBUTES A DRAMATIC ELEMENT TO THE BOOK AND RELATES RELIGION TO THE REALITIES OF LIFE

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR ITS POPULARITY


THE GREATNESS AND THE POPULARITY OF THE GITA CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO SEVERAL FACTORS IT IS A PART AND PARCEL OF THE EPIC MAHABHARATA WHICH ITSELF HAS BEEN HIGHLY VENERATED AS THE FIFTH VEDA THE TEACHER OF THE GITA IS SRIKRISHNA WHO IS REGARDED BY THE HINDUS AS AN AVATARA OR INCARNATION OF GOD HMSELF AS IDEAL FRIEND A GREAT STATESMAN AN INVINCIBLE WARRIOR A WISE PRECEPTOR AND A YOGI PAR EXCELLENCE HE HARMONIZES IN HIS LIFE THE VARIOUS CONFLICTING ACTIVITIES OF LIFE IT IS PRECISELY THIS THAT MAKES HIM THE FITTEST PERSONS TO PREACH SUCH A RELIGION SPIRITUAL CLASSIC ARJUNA THE RECIPIENT OF THE TEACHING THOUGH HIMSELF A GREAT WARRIOR IS A TYPICAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HUMANS LIABLE TO BE UPSET OR CONFUSED DURING PERIODS OF CRISIS HENCE HIS PREDICAMENT VERY MUCH REPRESENTS OURS IN A SIMILAR SITUATIONTHE QUESTIONS DOUBTS AND MISGIVINGS HE RAISES AND THE SOLUTIONS THAT SRI KRISHNA OFFERS ARE NOT ONLY RELEVANT BUT ALSO VALID EVEN TODAY
THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL REASON TOO THE HINDU VEDANTIC TRADITION HAS ALWAYS REGARDED THE THREE FOUNDATIONL WORKS AS ITS BASIS AND THE GITA IS ONE OF THEM THE OTHER TWO BEING THE UPANISADS AND THE BRAHMASUTRAS THAT IS WHY ANCIENT TEACHERS HAVE CHOSEN TO WRITE COMMENTARIES ON IT
