Anu Gītā

views updated

Anu Gītā. The miniature Gītā, a summary and recapitulation of the Bhagavad-gītā, given to Arjuna by Kṛṣṇa at the end of the Great War, because, as Arjuna says, ‘the instruction already given has gone out of his degenerate mind’. It is selective (e.g. it does not recapitulate the devotional parts of the Gītā), and inclines to an emphasis on jñāna-yoga.
