The Gita is replete with spiritual wisdom. However, it does not appeal to many people, especially children, who fail to understand the meaning and essence of its shlokas. This book strives to get across the meaning of key shlokas from the Gita by presenting them with appropriate stories. The stories have been carefully selected from ancient scriptures, Puranas, epics, and folklore, and are accompanied by eye-catching illustrations. ‘Bhakti – Devotion’ is the first book of the series titled Gita Wisdom Tales, which comprises five books in all.
