Yes. There is no doubt about the Gita having been recited by Lord Krishna in the
battlefield. It is not a mere composition of Chiranjivi (eternally living) Vyasa. Recall to mind
the following two Slokas which can be found in the Gita Mahatmya:
Gita Sugeeta Kartavya Kimanyaih Sastravistaraih
Ya Svayam Padmanabhasya Mukhapadmadvinissruta
Bharatamritasarvasvam Vishnorvaktradvinissrutam
Gitagangodakam Peetva Punarjanma Na Vidyate
The Gita is not a human composition at all. Have the conviction as such, without the
usual questioning intellect. Remember all the Avatara Purushas like Sri Sankara and Sri
Ramanuja who had written commentaries on the Gita. Lord Krishna Himself says to one of His
lady-devotees named Lilabai that He and the Gita are identical and that worship of the one is
adoration of the other. Study Slokas 68 to 71 of the Eighteenth Chapter of the Gita to infuse in
yourself the necessary faith and love towards the holy scriptures.

  • Thank you Swamiji,
    After I study the Bhagvat Gita, Rig Ved and Bible I found that the scriptures are not from human but from the God.
    God is working in the life of all human and He guide some one in that direction to save the humanity or His race.
    Thanks and with best regards.
