The Bible is the largest religious text of the Christian religion, the Koran is the largest religious text of the Muslim religion. Similarly, the Veda is the greatest religious text of the Hindu religion.There are four Vedas, Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajurveda and Artharva Veda. The conclusion of these four Vedas is the Upanishads. 18 Puranas have been composed from the Upanishads. The conclusion of all the Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas is the Gita. The Gita is written in chapter 18 of the religious book.When Arjuna was ignorant that he would not fight the Mahabharata, Krishnaji recited the Gita for the attainment of good knowledge. However, since Arjuna was not satisfied, Lord Krishna gave Arjuna a vision of the world and gave him clear knowledge. Arjuna is prepared to fight the Mahabharata. Thus Nishkamana originated in Arjuna.
All this knowledge is meditated on by God in chapter 18 of the Gita. The same 18 chapters are the rules of the main important religion of Hinduism. In summary of these 18 chapters, we need to understand God’s 18 divine commandments.Divine law is God’s command that we human beings should follow the 18 rules and dedicate ourselves to crossing the ocean to live our lives.
So we call the Gita 18 Commandments. For example, Christians call the Bible the Ten Commandments.
