Bhagavad Gita

MADELINE: I read slow so I don’t miss anything.

PARIS: It’s not the Bhagavad Gita, Madeline. It’s simple instructions for the business fair.

The Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, literally meaning “the song by God” in Sanskrit, often referred to as Bhagavad Gita, or just the Gita. It’s a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the epic The Mahābhārata, dated to the first millennium BC.

It is the best known of the holy scriptures of Hinduism, presenting a synthesis of Hindu philosophy and yogic ideals. It was a personal inspiration to Mahatma Ghandi, and has been often read, studied, and appreciated by westerners and non-Hindus. Many Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, and atheists have read the Bhagavad Gita for spiritual advice and life lessons.

Madeline’s comment suggests that she isn’t stupid – just slow, thorough, and careful in how she absorbs information.
