Most Translated Literary Work of India

Most translated literary work is Bhagavad Gita, an integral part of the Mahabharata. It was first translated into English in 1785 by Charles Wilkeinson. Since then, Bhagavad Gita has been translated into 55 languages.

Bhagavad Gita is considered as a practical, self-contained guide to life. It is a conversation between Krishna and Arjuna which took place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra just prior to the start of a climactic war. Responding to Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma, Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and Prince and elaborates on a number of different Yogic[ and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies.
