La Srimad Bhagavad Gita è un dialogo tra il Signore Krishna e Arjuna. Comprende diciotto discorsi per un totale di 701 versi in Sanscrito. Nel campo di battaglia di Kurukshetra, Sri Krishna, durante i suoi più istruttivi ed interessanti discorsi con Arjuna, rivela profonde, istruttive ed ispiranti verità spirituali esponendo i rari segreti dello Yoga, del Vedanta, Bhakti e Karma. Tutti gli insegnamenti del Signore Krishna furono successivamente tramandati da Bhagavan Vyasa nella Canzone Celeste o Srimad Bhagavad Gita per il beneficio dell’umanità intera per guidarla nello svolgimento della vita quotidiana, per il suo sviluppo e per la sua realizzazione spirituale. È una Scrittura universale applicabile a persone di ogni temperamento e di ogni tempo.

EDIZIONI MEDITERRANEE Born in 1953, from the restructuring of the Mediterranean Publishing House, already founded in the 1930s, the Mediterranean Editions originally have works of art, fiction, scientific dissemination and sport in their catalog. Beginning in the 1960s, they expanded their interests in other fields: parapsychology, alchemy, occultism, alternative medicines and, in sports necklaces, they introduced, first in Italy, all martial arts. Over time, production has increased considerably, allowing the publishing house, which has always been an independent publisher, to rank first in Italy as regards esotericism, parapsychology and the occult sciences, spiritism, magic, astrology, yoga, zen, meditation, alternative therapies, herbal medicine, ayurveda, homeopathy, aromatherapy, gemmotherapy, sexology and others.
