Bhagavad-Gita
by Lord Krishna

The Bhagavad-Gita (The Song of God) is part of the gospel of Hinduism. It is to the Hindu scriptures what the New Testament is to the Bible. It says to be a perfect man (Atman Yogi) you must control your senses and renounce your desires and contemplate God (Brahman) all the time. If you do this, you will live in heaven for eternity with Brahman; if you don't, you will be reincarnated and keep being reincarnated until you make it. It is opposed to ritualism.
