The Bhagavad-Gita for Beginners and Children - Dr. Ramananda Prasad

This book is a simplified version of Gita for the use of beginners and children, in English in the form of a dialogue between a child and his grandmother. To make the dialogue interesting for children, the author has made use of 26 stories which will also help them understand the teachings of Gita better.

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.





  1. Hello,

    U are doing a great job.
    If possible kindly provide source for Kalika Purana.

    Thanks and regards,

  2. Jai Gurudev,

    you are doing great work.
    i am happy i found this website.

    Would it be a good idea to upload
    books on Indian history in common era
    and particularly about fight of Hindu
    kings against foreign forces due to
    whom we have still retained our
    identity as hindus.

    Many Thanks,

  3. This is a treasure trove!

    I wanted to let you know about Hindupedia, the online encyclopedia of Sanatana Dharma. It might be of interest to your readers.

  4. Kamal,

    I have a separate blog ( for such posts. There I have already posted the biography of Sivaji, Aurobindo and Savarkar. I plan to post the lives of Chanakya, Rana Pratap, Rani Lakshmi Bai, etc.

    Please let me know if you have anyone specific in your mind.

  5. I am sure that you may agree that there is a need for the Bhagvad-Gita’s modern translation in verse after identifying the interpolations therein and thereby deleting same , which I believe my Bhagvad-Gita: Treatis of self-help in contemporary verse sans 110 interpolations, would meet, since it is not only recommended by 'Great Books and Classics',, but also it is being carried on their sites by the World Public Library, Constitution Society and the Hindu Scriptures-specific websites such as Vedanta Spiritual Library, Krishna Universe of Hindu Universe,,,
    Likewise my versified Sundara Kanda: Hanuman's Odyssey (part of Valmiki Ramayana) in English, which is so lovingly edited by Ms. Katlin Darnall of the World Public Library to immensely beautify it has appealed to the said sites, which carry it on their boards
    I would be glad to submit the books in PDF for your perusal and consideration
