Gita is a girl's name of Sanskrit origin derived from the ancient Hindu poem Bhagavad-gītā—_the "Song of God." A 700-verse text, the _Gītā is presented as dialogue that occurs between Prince Arjuna and the major Hindu deity Krishna. Speaking of an impending battle, the figures discuss matters of the soul, ethical dilemmas, and the importance of life choices. As much a philosophical text as a spiritual one, the Gītā remains a profound guide to all matters related to self-identity and purpose. Embodying this beloved scripture, Gita represents a deep human compassion and higher understanding wrapped up in two syllables that simply mean "song."
