The Bhagavad Gita (Song of God) is one of the most revered sacred scriptures of Hinduism and is considered as one of the most important religious classics of the world.
A verse from the Gita Mahatmya (Glory of Gita) says, "All the Upanishads are the cows, the one who milks the cows is Krishna, Arjuna (Partha) is the calf. Men of purified intellect are the beneficiaries; the cow's milk is the great nectar of the Gita". So, it is believed that the Gita contains the quintessence of all the Vedic scriptures.
