"Bhishma," the sixth book of the eighteen-book epic The Maha-bh rata, narrates the first ten days of the great war between the K uravas and the P ndavas. This first volume covers four days from the beginning of the great battle and includes the famous "Bh gavad-gita ("The Song of the Lord"), presented here within its original epic context. In this "bible" of Indian civilization the charioteer Krishna empowers his disciple rjuna to resolve his personal dilemma: whether to follow his righteous duty as a warrior and slay his opponent relatives in the just battle, or to abstain from fighting and renounce the warrior code to which he is born.
