The Bhagavad Gita Paper Prompts. The prompt is described as a sequence of questions but your paper should have a coherent and smooth flow to the writing so that one would not need to see the prompt in order to follow your writing easily. Each paper should have an introduction and conclusion that synthesizes the points of the paper into one statement about the author’s work. (The introduction and the conclusion need to be their own paragraphs.) Also, you need to use at least two quotes. You must cite the page numbers in parentheses after the quote. For example, (p. 11) Metaphysics – Give a brief review of what the whole book is about.
