# Geeta-Darshan (गीता-दर्शन) (series)

- Osho's discourses in Hindi on the classic Hindu scripture
*Srimad Bhagavad Gita*were given in the early 70's over a period of several years, and are his longest-running mega-series on any subject in either Hindi or English, comprising a total of 219 discourses. These discourses are grouped according to the chapters (*adhyayas*) of the original*Gita*, of which there are eighteen. Each adhyaya concerns a particular type of yoga or path to wholeness which is suitable to particular types of people, their psychologies and so on.

- See discussion for a relatively complete and detailed consideration of the
*Geeta Darshan*timeline, with sources, etc.

- All the discourses are available in audio form. Those on the first two adhyayas were given in one seamless series in Ahmedabad and are lumped together as Vol 1&2 but all the others, Vol 3 to 18, come as individual series, ranging from 7 to 21 discourses. For books, first editions came in this same 18/17-volume format. In later years, from the early 90s on, an eight-volume book format came to be preferred, combining two or three of the earlier volumes / adhyayas as indicated in the list below.

- In the wiki, we have related mainly to the eight-volume editions, as their info has been much more available. As an organizing principle, it is less "natural" than the 18/17-vol format but far more complete. Such info as we have on the earlier editions is provided in pages dedicated to them.

- The first high-quality translations into English began appearing only in 2012. As of 2019 there are still only the first two volumes translated, ie Vol 1&2 and Vol 3. Links to them via the first volume of the eight-volume set below:
