Product description: The Bhagavad Gita is a part of the popularly known epic Mahabharata that describes the war between the Pandavas (Warrior Prince Arjuna and family) and the Kauravas ( Warrior Prince Duryodhana and family) on the battlefield of Kuru-kshetra. The Gita is the discourse given by Lord Krishna to his disciple Arjuna just before the war is about to begin. Arjuna, the warrior gives up his determination to fight as he sees his relatives, family and teachers in both armies ready to fight and sacrifice their lives. Hence Lord Krishna, the supreme being himself is present as the charioteer for Arjuna, and explains the fundamental distinction between the temporary material body and the eternal spiritual soul which is explained in the 18 chapters/yogas of Bhagavad Gita. Gita, the most revered Hindu text, is a combination of Hindu objectives about Dharma, Bhakti and Moksha. The wood panel depicts the scene of Lord Krishna’s upadesam (teachings) to warrior Arjuna on the battlefield of kuru-kshetra. The chariot is beautifully designed with intricate details, and Lord Krishna is the charioteer seated with one of his hands holding on to the five horses, and his right hand blessing Arjuna. Arjuna is seated inside the chariot bowing to the lord and listening to his teachings, and the armies of elephants and horses are present near the chariot portraying the battlefield. The wood carving shows all the characteristic features of each subject, and keen attention to details is given throughout the panel demonstrating a fine workmanship by our team of artists. Wall hanging hardware is attached to the panel.
