The Original Bhagavad Gita contains the rare verses and the total number of verses in it is 745, which is in confornity with the Gitamana verse of the Bhishma parva of the Mahabharata. A millennium ago Abhinavagupta included some rare verse in his commently on the Bhagavad Gita. The Kashmiri version of the Bhagavad Gita brought out by Schraeder in the early last century contained rare verses. The book, published by the Gondal pith, based on an ancient manuscript from Varanasi, contained many rare verses. Though the existence of the rere verses of the Bhagavad Gita is well documented it is only the present book, based on three decades of research, gives the original version of the Bhagavad Gita with all the 745 verses and have identified and excluded the superflous verses.
