Bhagavan Krishna was the eighth incarnation of Vishnu who lived in India five thousand years ago.
One of the meanings given for the word Krishna in the Hindu scriptures is "Omniscient spirit". Thus "Krishna" like the word "Christ", is a title signifying the spiritual oneness with God.
The title Bhagavan means Lord, and the Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord) is the best known gospel of Lord Krishna instructing his disciple Arjuna on the eve of the historic battle of Kurukshetra (3000 BC).
The Gita is a timeless prescription for happiness and success in everyday living. It shows how the science of correct thinking and living (yoga), when adopted, can lead one to a blissful, deep inner state of communion with God.
