Bhagavad Gita, the "Song of the Supreme," was revealed by the great sage Kṛṣṇa Dvaipāyana or Veda Vyasa. The 700 verses in it consist of prominent truths from all great scriptures of the world. It is without a doubt that one who reads it with the utmost devotion finds ways to attain perfection and liberation.
The world is torn by conflicts and miseries presently. The life of an individual in today's world is packed with problems, chaos, restlessness, and unhappiness. And every human being is looking for ways to end the everlasting misery.
All beings are truly the forms of the divine. But due to illusion and ignorance, we are trapped in cyclic births and rebirths. We need Gita to bring back the divine connection that exists in us. The transcendental knowledge in Gita helps human beings to escape from this state of misery and to enter the union of the Supreme.
Moreover, in this modern world, we need to understand that the battle for us is not on the battlefield, but it is in us. It's not about victory or defeat but understanding one's own "Self" in the whole process. Reading Bhagavad Gita is thus essential to make our self-discovery easier and simpler.
With a lot of commentaries and interpretations for Gita, one may worry about finding the original Bhagavad Gita. The revealer of Bhagavad Gita is the great sage Veda Vyasa and only by reading the original version, one can taste the nectar and essence of Gita.
